Notes: Beneficiaries of Chance is a beer that celebrates the good fortune of love, and the truly impossible circumstances by which it takes place in the scale of the universe. It asks us to be thankful, and remain in awe of the pure unlikelihood that we are given such an opportunity. It celebrates friendship, awe, kindness, and all the feelings we are fortunate to experience as part of the human condition.
Original 2014 release: 5.3% ABV

Pours hazy straw yellow with a couple fingers of head that dissipates to a ring with good lacing.

Smell is citrus, lemon/lime followed with light grassy floral notes.

Taste is mostly citrus, I don't get much of the floral notes from the nose.

Feel is thin which makes the taste feel watered down.

Pretty disappointed as I'd love the opportunity for a sessionable low ABV quality IPA from Treehouse, but this misses the mark

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus with some lighter floral and tropical fruit notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of citrus, mostly orange and lemon. Picks up some tropical fruit and floral undertones. Light bready maltiness pokes through. Finishes with lingering citrus and floral notes

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very good pale ale with plenty of hops. Super easy to drink. Worth checking out

16 oz. can. Hazy pale orange. Smells of garlic and mango. Tastes of citrus mostly. A little garlic. Dries out quickly. Light acidity in the finish along with some yeasty notes. Medium body. I like the hop profile, but it also amplifies the bitter and earthy yeasty bits.

From can. Pours a hazy, translucent light orange color with a creamy head. Nose is orange citrus with some lighter tropical fruit notes.
Palate is again citrusy with a touch of melon and papaya. Lightly hopped and a nice effervesence.
Rounded and super quaffable. Tree House hit the nail on the head with this Pale Ale. Any one complaining about the lack of hops compared to their more renowned IPAs is completely misunderstanding this catagory of beer.

Canned 9/15/20, tasted 11/8/20. As a lighter pale ale, this one is quite solid, but it just "pales" in comparison to the more flavorful TH offerings. The look was a nice cloudy yellowish orange, and the mouthfeel was also nice, although on the thinner side as expected. The smell was pretty bland though, and the taste was similarly uninspiring. Had a hint of citrus and a bit of lingering bitterness, but not a ton of flavor beyond that. Not a beer I'd actively seek again, although I'd be happy to drink it if it were offered to me.

Opaque maize with a moderate off-white froth dying to a fuzzy uneven film and ring that clings to the glass in tall cobwebs.

Smell is lightly tropical and also peppery. The smoothly soft medium-light body has a mildly rounding carbonation that initiates a touch of shortbread before a lightly prickly hop teases the tongue, finishing semi-dry.

This is very a mild and crushable Tree House yeast showcase, with that always pleasant and refreshing melon quality made all the more drinkable here. While slightly spicy, it's also uniquely delicate.

Crushable because it’s not offensive in any way. No strong aftertaste, great aroma, light citrus flavor, full flavor but nothing stands out. Just very pleasing start to finish. Great beer but best when fresh.
