Notes: So... we brewed an all Nelson IPA! Harmony is absolutely packed with one of the most unique and delicious hop varieties in the world - Nelson Sauvin. We taste and smell pungent New Zealand white wine (acidic citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, lime) offset by a medley of tropical fruit. A simple malt bill provides a mildly sweet balance but this beer is really all about the hops. A soft and proper bitterness finishes things off and keeps you coming back for more. We just adore Nelson... and this beer!

16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a massive effervescent off-white head. Great retention. Leaves some splotchy lacing along the top of the glass.

Mild aromas of cantaloupe, peach, grapefruit and orange. Not getting the white wine notes one expects from the nelson hop.

Lots of citrus up front, namely grapefruit, orange and lime. A bit of cantaloupe and a strong doughy malt backbone. There's a faint grape skin note on the finish. Good but disappointing.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Spicy, with a nice hop bite. Very dry on the finish.

Overall, this is definitely a very good single hop IPA. It's not the greatest representation of the nelson hop, but this is definitely a nice, drinkable IPA. Hopefully there will be more single hop IPA's in Tree House's future.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Tree House Brewery in Sandwich for about sixteen dollars. My one hundred and fifty seventh brew from these guys. This was very nice. Good to see a newer TH beer under 8%.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Captain Lawrence muffin top pint glass; canned on 06/24/21, code HAPPINESS IS WHEN WHAT YOU THINK AND WHAT YOU DO ARE IN HARMONY..
A: Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color with a one to two finger, white head, rim plus retention and amorphous rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of peach and apricot predominate over citrus, overlaying appreciable graininess.
T: More semisweet than semidry. Palate largely follows the nose, although the sweatiness of nectarine is, by far, the most notable fruit, and caramel malt and a bit of corn are very evident. Solid bitterness offsets much of the fruit and all of the sugars.
M: Medium bodied with a moderate effervescence.
O: A very interesting and distinct IPA from Tree House. Well crafted.

16 oz. can. Hazy orange. Smells of herbals and white grape. Tastes of strong herbal flavors, white grape behind it. Finishes with an earthy bitterness. Malty, but not sweet. Dry and bitter, surprisingly. Medium body. It's ok.

Canned 10/29/20. "Find yours" stamped on the bottom

Yet again, we have a standard IPA from Tree House instead of their famed NEIPAs. This was the oldest beer in the mixed case I got last week, just over a month old now. Let's see how she's holding up

Pours a hazy pale yellow with 3 fingers of white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves plenty of lacing

The nose is very fruity for an American IPA. Tons of lemon, lime, grapefruit, overripe cantaloupe, and orange, balanced out by crisp pale malt and resiny hops

This one has an interesting balance in flavor, starting off sharp but ending much softer. The front end is dominated by tart citrus, more lemon and lime along with bright piney hops. Post swallow is where things soften up after a brief rush of hops, bringing notes of mango and general melon with a soft doughy malt

A light medium body pairs with gentle carbonation for a smooth beer, but feels a bit too thin. Still, this doesn't hurt the drinkability. Finishes very neutral, not dry or sticky

While not the home run I'm used to from Tree House, this was still pretty damn good. A very fruit forward IPA with great balance. I've only got 2 more left in the mixed case to review :)

L - not as hazy as typical TH fare. Features mild opaqueness with a dull, golden yellow glow and meager head.

S - grainy, wheaty, and lemony. Definitely smells like Nelson. Musty white grape and apples. Doughy with a touch of peach coming in toward the end. Nice harmony (heh) between the grape and peach.

T - the must is strong in this one. Wild grapes, kalamata olive, and a strong underlying peach flavor. Ever since I picked up on it in the nose, it's been hitting harder and harder with each sip. Cantaloupe and melon. Soft fruit flavors with hardly any citrus twang. It does feature chalky dryness as the wild grape bitterness floods in at the very end.

F - mealy and rich. Full-bodied with heft that feels like being covered by a weighted blanket.

O - reminds me in some ways of the first batch of In Perpetuity. This is the same batch that I bought 8 cans of the first day, cracked one that night, and absolutely had to go back for another 8 cans the second day. Speaking of, haven't seen that one for ages, but Lauren season is coming up, so fingers crossed. Doesn't have that same vibrant magic as the first batch, but this is still pretty special in its own right. Excellent new (old?) offering from Tree House.

Harmony from Tree House Brewing Co. A 6.9% American IPA brewed exclusively with Nelson Sauvin hops. Semi-opaque; excellent head retention; beautiful cave pattern drawing lacing. Perfumy aromatics of white wine, tropical fruit, butterfly bush flowers, and fresh baked bread. Taste follows with additional expressions of pink Starburst, gooseberry, that OG Tree House bubblegum yeast, and some faint kiwi on the finish. Soft on the palate, with a restrained bitterness. F*cking awesome. As someone who's favorite hop is Nelson, my standards for its execution are like no other. This one hits all the notes. Seek immediately!!!
