Notes / Commercial Description:
This Double IPA is created with a massive kettle charge of Australian and American hops. It opens in the glass with huge notes of ripe pineapple, pithy citrus, and dank saturated hops. As it warms it shows its depth and complexity. . . Sweet hints of malt intermingle with straight Tropicana. It has a soft but pointed bitterness and a rich, velvety mouth feel.

Born-on date: 8/17/18 (with a reference to the Queen of Soul stamped on the bottom of the can); consumed on 9/6/18, so this one is 20 days old.

A: Poured from the can into a Palm Tulip. Body is hazy golden with a thin whitish head on top. Seriously looks like a beer milkshake.

S: Strong nose of tropical fruit - pineapple, pineapple juice - and citrus - oranges, grapefruit - with a touch of dank pine.

T: First impression: given the nose, I thought this was going to be . . . more. More in-your-face tropical fruit-juicy, more pungent, more . . . just more. But then I realize that there is so much going on here: pine needles, sweet citrus (oranges and orange peel, limes), loads of grapefruit (pith and peel) and pineapple - that I think it all combines to convince you that it's more one-dimensional than it really is. But when you dissect it, really think about what flavors are washing over your tongue. . . well, then it hits you: this beer has a lot going on. Finishes with a lingering pine needle-like bitterness and alcohol warmth and astringency that is a bit surprising for Tree House (I usually find the alcohol in their beers - even their DIPAs - to seem more muted).

M: Medium in body, carbonation is active but fine - but you kind of have to think about it. Drinks light, notwithstanding the big-time lingering bitterness on the palate and the tropical fruit salad of flavors here.

O: Another tremendous beer from Tree House, as expected.

Golden pour, sap and resin in the taste. Very drinkable. Even balance of carbonation and definitely worth a trip to the brewery to try this beverage.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Dated 08/17/18. Brought back from the brewery by my friend's fiancee (bless her heart).

Pours extremely hazy, pale golden, I imagined a green tinge to it when I poured it. Medium to small head, very fine and dense, and a lot of very fine carbonation. This believably looks like a hopshake. Smell is rich -- fresh, green, piney, lemony, tropical. All of the things.

Taste is sweet and green and bitter. If you hold it in your mouth for a bit, the resin just takes over. If you drink it fast, you get mostly the malty sweetness and floral/tropical hop notes. Nice contrast.

Mouthfeel is thick and rich and resinous. Overall, very good beer.
