BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We constructed this beer around hops we currently have plenty of access to, allowing us to re-brew it on a (relatively) consistent basis. We smell a ton of orange on the nose, with complimentary notes of peach and passionfruit. The flavor is similar with a blast of citrus fruit & orange quickly followed by spicy grapefruit, and earthy dankness. A lingering but pleasant hop oil finish awaits.

Taste or orange in this very smooth double IPA. Much less bitter in taste compared to other DIPA from Treehouse (eg Doppelgänger). Color is orange with optimal carbonation.

Special; sublime; smoother than I expected. A citrus bomb - you'll want to lick the lacing off the glass to not lose a single taste of orange. I don't taste or sense the bitterness of some other DIPAs. It's almost dangerously easy to drink for its ABV level. A great accomplishment!

Ok, so it looks like pineapple juice with a good inch of soapy bubbles on top. That foam clings pretty stubbornly to the glass. It looks like a NEIPA should look (except they can says it is a DIPA). Canned on 10/02/2018 and consumed on 10/7/18.

It smells of orange, tangerines, maybe a little passionfruit. Grapefruit - seems to be like a Ruby Red, and grapefruit peel notes. A little earthy hop note at the end with a touch of apricot or peach.

The flavor is a nice mix of light tropical and heavy on the citrus fruits. Passion fruit sneaks in amongst the red grapefruit, orange, and tangerine dream thing going on. Slight apricot/peach. The grapefruit emerges with surprising strength. There is a substantial hoppy finish but more in the oily earthy arena than the bitter. Doesn't seems as intensely flavored as the aroma suggests. Slightly sweet, minimally bitter.

A bit of a tingle on the tongue, otherwise smooth but in my opinion it lacks proper DIPA (again, what the can claims it is) body...actually feels a tad bit watery.

While I think this is well made and tastes good, it's not hitting the mark for "liking" with me It's a nicely constructed NEIPA, but in my opinion it is one among the crowd - no better, no worse. It tastes good, it is easy drinking, but fails on the overall liking for me. That said, still worthwhile if it is readily available - stand in line for, maybe not so much.

Experiment Time: I had a week old Haze and a three month old Haze.
My buddy and I did a side by side blind taste test. My wife poured each can into two mugs and here's what we found:

First of all, it was yet another run of the mill Tree House IPA. Delicious, but predictable.
Three month old Tree House didn't taste bland and dead. I actually prefered it in some manner to the week old IPA. Three month old IPA has all the flavor profile but is alot more mellow. You can taste and smell the bouquet of orange and citrus without the backbite of bitterness. The fresh one had more punch and bite, but not overwhelmingly so. That being said, I remember having a Haze a few months ago and it was too dank and dark for my approval.

I honestly think that the only difference between one Tree House IPA and the next is one or two scoops of hops or a slightly different PH level in the water. It should be pretty clear that they are trying tot dial in on the greatest version of what they invented - and each iteration has a new label and write up to get us all excited about drinking the repackaged, ever so slightly tweaked version of our favorite old citrusy IPA's.

16oz can. Pours a hazy (shocking) burnt yellow with an inch of frothy head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is orange, peach, papaya, pineapple and pink grapefruit. The taste is papaya, orange and pink grapefruit. Peach and papaya towards the end with some bread crusts. Medium body with low carbonation. Pretty noticeable alcohol presence. Creamy mouthfeel.
