T: Juicy, clean, fresh, perfection

O: Slammin' brew. Exactly what you would expect from Tree House. More enjoyable than the Eureka w/ Nelson but not by much.

Loving the extra hop varieties of this.

Big creamy fluffy airy 1+ finger head fades semi slowly, nice soapy messy lacing, super hazy pear straw yellowy color.

Nose brings typical Eureka with extra citrus notes, lots of tropical like earthy terrior typical of kiwi, musty resinous dank hop oils and citrus, nice juicy tangerine and orange peel, touch of citrus oil, touch of grapefruit pith even. Underneath is a mild cereal grainy almost straw fluffy malt.

Taste brings tons of more hops, again cross of kiwi tropical like fruits and earthy terrior with citrus orange peel etc. More juicy citrus and citrus oil, dank musty resin, nice grapefruit pith and almost lemon peel like, guava and hint passion fruit, etc. Nice fluffy grainy base malt, props up the hops nicely. Long bitter rind finish with little pith and more tropical kiwi earthy hops lingering nicely, dry and clean finish.

Mouth is med bod, fluffy feel, nice carb.

Overall great, takes the normal Eureka and adds a touch of citrus both peel and juice with little grapefruit and tangerine, delicious blend.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this beer.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice light haze straw hue with a nice one finger head that faded to leave a thin light blanket and light side lacing.

S - Aromas of light citrus notes and oranges, faint tropical notes, nicely aromatic like a cross between citra and a new Zealand hop. Base malts, faint wheat. Bright citrus and floral fragrant tropical hops.

T - Taste is a nice malty grain backbone with good hop notes. The citrus is bright and clean with good very faint bitterness. The tropical notes are faint and floral but pleasant. Nice light pineapple and faint mango. Very light and crisp with a very subtle but delicious hop touch.

O - Overall this beer was very drinkable and pleasant. Nice almost bubblegum tropical note and citrus. Think this is better than the base beer thanks to the nice tropical hops and tangerine citrus.

Fresh from the brewery today.

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Cloudy gold with a finger thick white head which receded to uneven surface foam and patchy to patterned lacing.

s; Moderate citrus. Later, pine resin.

t: Sweet lemon, orange and tangerine up front followed by a moderate hop bite. Grapefruit notes emerge later, and pine resin later still.

m: Light to medium, with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A superior American summer brew, showcasing the hops with a solid light to medium malt body. Equinox is a new hop variety created by the same company which gave us the popular Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic versions. The profile of this new hop varietal seems quite complex, which makes for an especially interesting drinking experience.

The low ABV (3.9% says the Tree House website) makes this an eminently sessionable brew, and when compared to the current fledgling crop of "session IPAs," Eureka with Equinox just about knox them all out.

A - pours a lemon yellow color reminiscent of a hazey summer day. Big fluffy snowy white foam fizzes out rather quickly but comes to life just as fast with a vigorous swirl. 4

S - aroma is subtle and straight forward. Notes of lemon, honeydew melon, cracked black pepper and maybe a hint of green bell pepper skin. Crackery malt backbone. 3.5

T - grainy and crackery malt characters up front. Spicy and peppery notes seem to be the focus. A touch of rindy citric bitterness in the background which intensifies some grassy herbaceous flavors. Lemony acid on the backend. Long bitter-sweet-tart finish. 3.75

M - slick and watery with a light body, yet the high carbonation still gives a crisp character. Resfreshing feel overall. 3.5

O - an interesting and refreshing take on a low abv ale. Would be nice to be able to crush a few cans of these on a hot summer day by the pool. 3.75
