Introducing Lights On - A modern American Pale Ale brewed to celebrate a new beginning here at Tree House!

We taste papaya, guava, and mango - a fresh and distinctive flavor profile that’s wholly Tree House. Buoyed by a soft and fluffy mouthfeel, Lights On is a delight to drink.

Just like all the other Tree House IPA's. I am now changing my reviewing criteria for all items to start at 2.5 as a baseline and move up and down from there. From that standpoint I might go back and change my past Tree House experiences and bring the overall Tree House experience somewhere down to a 3.25- 3.5.
"Lights On" is one of those Tree House's with more bitterness than I care for But ultimately I'm just disappointed with the lack of variety at the company. Still a world-class beer and all in all I like the Tree House IPA flavor better than nearly any other beer.

drunk out of the can bought direct from TH, 9/20/2018

color is a nice honeydew melon orange

smell is mango& papaya..sweet but mild

taste was not as hefty as some of the other TH offerings and lacks some of their punch but easy to drink just the same

medium body and carbination

a: super hazy burnt caramel color with some pale yellow notes and a thick, 1 finger off-white head

s: orange zest, grapefruit, lemongrass upfront. there is some musty earthy grains behind that. super juicy passionfruit and papaya follows. the finish is more of that earthy must and juicy grapefruit & papaya

t: big hit of melon and papaya upfront. behind that is some sweet malt and dry crackers. pineapple and oranges add a nice bit of tropical sweetness, with a touch of grapefruit at the end for a subtle kiss of bitterness

m: mouthfeel is the lighter side of medium, with a touch sticky from the malts. mouthfeel a touch chewy, a touch fluffy, with low-medium carbonation

o: this is a nice drinking APA. nice hop combination and isn't too heavy. it looks like a hazy NE style beer, but the mouthfeel has enough carbonation that it makes for a juicy and refreshing APA

L: Pretty typical treehouse, orange/pale-yellow colored beer, very hazy, originally pours a frothy head though retention is somewhat limited.
S: Tons of fruit, this one is really attractive smelling. Sweet banana orange mango smoothie like in aroma. Creamy and delicious. Nice mix of hop fruits and yeast related fruit aromas here.
T: Lots of dry malt and wheat. Hop notes come through but are rather restricted to a slight but present bitterness on the finish.
F: As per this brewery, highly drinkable, smooth silky and full bodied. Sort of like a meal in a can, just feels substantial but its not a chore to drink. Slightly astringent on the finish.
O: Great beer with a killer aroma. Easy to drink, probably could have some sessionability though its on the heavier side for sure. Compared to the market its a winner, though compared to other TH beers its sort of blends into the crowd.

TREE HOUSE LIGHTS ON 8/24/18

Bought yesterday at the brewery.

a: Cloudy yellow/orange with an inch and a half white head which receded to thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Orange peel. That quintessential captivating Tree House aroma.

t: Follows the nose, especially at first, over a light malt base. dry finish.

m: light to medium. OK body and some carbonation tingle.

o: Wow, the quintessential Tree House brew, smells and tastes like the brewery smells. Sessionable yet with all the usual Tree House New England IPA bells and whistles. Only slight negative is the mouthfeel has a tendency to get slightly watery . Still, the best session IPA for my money.
