Tree Bucket  Double IPATree Bucket  Double IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Vivant
Michigan, United States

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Big, bold, and balanced, this double IPA is unlike most. We take an artistic Belgian approach to our beer. Our brewers sling some serious Citra hops into the kettle as you might expect, but we overlay that excessive hoppiness with Belgian candi sugar to add dimension to this beer. The result is a siege of hop flavor without the bitterness. Tree Bucket catapults out of the brewery once a year. Hoppy beers are not for cellaring. Find it, drink it, enjoy it now.

Absolutely fantastic. A great sweetness of tropical fruit, with a mix of citru,s and a hoppy, pine like finish. The sweetness nicely cuts the bitterness and leaves you with a perfect taste. Worth the $18 for a 4-pack. I bought 3 :)

Golden color. Interesting tastes of grapefruit and something pine. A little bitter but amazing beer. Hoppy and earthy flavors. Would definitely order again but watch out for the ABV

Very tasty with plenty of flavor that is surprisingly smooth. Citrus hops and sweet finish. Most interesting beer in a while

This has a nice caramel/amber color when poured. I smelled the hops and other citrus notes, seemed full flavored and very strong. The taste was not as strong as a double IPA normally is, very smooth to drink. Absolutely amazing, great amount of hops and earth tones. One of my favorites from Brewery Vivant.

One of the best double IPAs I have tried!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and double IPAs are my favorite type of beers.
Unlike most double IPAs it is very refreshing not like others. Doesn't have that dirt taste that people can relate to double IPAs.
Slight amber and golden color
Aroma of pine and citrus along with hops
Really Well balanced taste

Taste: I loved this beer! Usually double IPA is too bitter for me but I could drink more than one of these
great amount of hops and earth tones that balance this beer. Great finish

Brewery Vivant did an amazing job with this Belgian inspired Double IPA. For a Double IPA, it was very well balanced and not over hopped. The citrus flavors and mouthfeel tied this beer together.
