Consumed 1/9/21

Golden tangerine orange, hazy, pours with a medium white head, fades to a few wisps, leaves some lacing
Orange, tangerine, touches of ruby red grapefruit, hint of lime, moderate amount of herbal and green hops, floral hops, low bitterness, light tropical notes, mango, melon, pineapple, pale malts, just a touch of bready sweetness
On the light side of medium, smooth with some crispness, medium-low carbonation

East Hill is a nice break from some of the newest hoppy Tree House Beers I have had lately. This actually tastes like a pale ale. It's hoppy in all the right ways, and also extraordinarily drinkable.

Pours cloudy gold color with a 2 finger soapy off white head with great lacing. Aroma is fragrant with floral citrus notes. The taste is pleasantly smooth grapefruit tangerine up front that quickly shifts to increasingly tart lemon notes. The finish is moderately high bitterness with lingering lemon. The feel is lightly soft, not crisp though. These are very different flavors than the typical NEIPA. But I do kind of like it as a change.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass; canned 11/19/2020, code DREAMS WERE MADE HERE.
A: Pours a cloudy, very dark golden to light amber color with a one and a half finger, foamy, light yellow head, solid, half finger retention and complex rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of pineapple, peach, lychee, and lemon citrus with a subtle grassy overlay and caramel maltiness. Pineapple persists in the nose.
T: Rather dry (nicely so). Elements of palate follow nose fairly closely. Bitterness nicely balanced, but contributes to complexity and crisp finish.
M: Light to medium bodied. Solid carbonation and.
O: Gorgeously drinkable. Subtle and complex.

From a 16oz can with no date stamp. I’m estimating it’s between four and six weeks old. Served in a willi becher glass.

Pours a cloudy, translucent candy-orange colour with two-plus fingers of fluffy white head. Retention is excellent, leaving a puffed marshmallow of a cap sitting on top of the beer and a webbery of sticky lacing.

Nose is fruity and doughy. Orange slices, orange marmalade and white bread.

Taste surprises with a first impression of earthy, spicy-floral bitterness. Orange pith, bread fruit, gummies, underripe pineapple and bread roll.

Feel is smooth and clean, no more than medium bodied with ample carbonation.

Overall, a satisfying, clean and easy drinking pale ale. Unusually subtle and nicely balanced relative to Tree House’s usual interpretation of APA.

Cloudy, vibrant yellow with close to two fingers of airy, slightly-yellowed head. Soapy lacing.

Citrus, pineapple and papaya in the nose.

Delicate tasting, again with light citrus, pineapple and papaya, as well as some toast and pepper. There’s a watered-down yuzu and marmalade impression on the backend. Maybe some grass, too.

Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

A nicely balanced, refreshing beer that’s not too in-your-face. Reminds me of some of the better new-school APAs, but with a delightful earthy citrus quality. Very good.

Pours hazy, orange-gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is tangerine and lime. Very light bodied, slightly bitter, medium-high carbonation. Really tasty for the abv. Nice light and sessionable. I prefer some of the other sessionable Tree House beers but this is quite good.

Tall can direct from the source...Canned 11/26/19, “let your soul shine”

Standard hazed up TH NEPA pour that leaves extensive fine sheeting and lace.

Tropical fruit nose, with the ever present pineapple, mango and a hint of lime.

Delicious brew, very much in the typical TH flavor lane. Smooth and tasty tropical fruit notes, just a bit of gritty hop presence and the usual awesome and enjoyable TH finish...all just a bit lighter then your usual TH IPA or DIPA....well worth a try...great beer to start out some NEIPA newbies on....

Canned 11/26/19, “let your soul shine”
This is a proper Pale. Perfect balance of drinkability and flavor. Light body and feel yet full juicy hop flavor. When many of the big hoppy offerings from TH become overwhelming, this is a welcome retreat. Could drink this every day with pleasure.

Bought at the brewery 11/26, which is also the canning date. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Opaque greenish orange with an inch thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.''

s: Moderate tropical fruit,'

t; Follows the nose with moderate hope bite over a substantial malt base. Dry finish with slight lingering bitterness.

m; "Meaty" medium, excellent body and some carbonation tingle.

o; A flavorful and well-balanced pale with most of the character Tree House has become known (and famous) for. More tropical and less citrusy than Eureka/Citra or Julius.

16oz can, poured into a Tree House snifter glass. Enjoyed on 6.13.19, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a very hazy and turbid orange color, pale golden hues with a nice white head that has good retention and lacing. The aroma is pleasant, lightly tropical with some more bitter citrus peel with a bright floral bouquet, lots of pale cereal grains and soft sweet yeast. The flavors are good, juicy and tropical, orange juice, mango and pineapple with a modest wildflower character but the backbone of pale dough and soft cereal grains is quite assertive. The mouthfeel is good, coating and thicker medium body that's creamy with a chewy and dry finish.

Verdict: A solid pale ale from Tree House. Perhaps a little overhopped but there is a good malt backbone to this beer.
