Lights OnLights On
Notes: Introducing Lights On - A modern American Pale Ale brewed to celebrate a new beginning here at Tree House! Lights On pours a gorgeous hazy orange in the glass, releasing an aroma filled with a bounty of sweet fresh fruit. 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. We’re excited to share it with you!

Look. Pale straw yellow with a definitive haze. A white foamy head
Smell....light hop smell of melon and papaya with the usual tree house yeast which is always special
Taste...The bitter but juicy onslaught is soon subsided by a dryness and and hop bite that is definitely not an IPA more indicative of sierra Nevada and for me reminiscent of Topplling Goliath's Psedo Sue.
Feel...A frothy mix of bitter prickly vessels with a smoothness and fullness that is rare in a beer that is 5.7 percent
Overall...This beer will have a special place for me so,,, because it was the first tree house beer I tried on Wednesday can day back in Monson when You could only get 12 cans. haha my order was 6 Lights on and 6 Haze. excellent pale ale better than most others

16 oz can poured into a pint glass

A- A hazy golden straw with a large white head

S- Citrus, grapefruit, some pine, hints of pale malts, touch of melons, earthy.

T- Citrus, melons, hint of mango, some pale malts, piney/earthy finish.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- Looking at the can I just noticed it’s 3 months old, might be past its prime with some of the bigger hops flavors, but still a very enjoyable pale ale.

Canned: 04/28/21

L: Pours a deep gold color with a full haze. A gentle pour gives two fingers of fine, white head with good retention. As the beer goes down it leaves a nice webbed lacing.

S: A light tropical nose with papaya, mango, and passionfruit complemented by light notes of citrus rind and a light grainy malt character.

T; Follows the nose pretty closely. I get sweet mangos, oranges, papaya, and passionfruit. I also get citrus rind, a very light grainy sweetness, and I also get a bit of an herbal quality that builds on the palate as the beer goes down. A nice residual sweetness in the aftertaste.

F: Medium body with medium carbonation. A smooth creamy mouthfeel with a minimal dryness on the finish. The lack of dryness makes it a bit too sweet/juicy for me.

O: Definitely a juicy treehouse take on the style. Really aggressive hop flavors for a 5.2% ABV beer. Recommended!

Canned 4/28/21. "Let there be Lights On!!!" stamped on the bottom of the can

My first chance here to try just a standard APA from Tree House amongst their lineup of various IPA styles. It's always nice to have something lighter from them, as I've loved the lagers I've tried from them. Hopefully this is in the direction of those beers

Pours a hazy yellow gold with 2 fingers of white head that slowly fades to a thin cap and leaves nice lacing

The nose on this one is not unlike some of their great NEIPAs, very bright and fruity, I'm picking up on aromas of lemon peel, orange juice, bready malt, grassy hops, lime, and light papaya

In taste, this takes some of the more intense aromas and tones them down in a nice way to make it very drinkable. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting lime juice, lemon peel, tangerine, light peppery hops, and crackery malt. The swallow brings notes of apricot, red grapefruit, orange rind, and grassy hops

A light medium body pairs with gentle tingling carbonation, resulting in a very crisp beer. Finishes mostly. dry with a light bitterness

A nice beer overall, but nothing incredible coming from them. Still, a very worthy beer and one that I can crush many of

Purchased on 8/16. Tasted on 8/21. Travelled 450 miles. Pours a beautiful milky golden color into a gravity pint glass. Carbonation clings to the glass. A subtle nose of tropical fruits (papaya, pineapple, mango) and peach. Refreshing taste. Low Bitterness. Perhaps a bit too much carbonation for me. Slightly disappointed considering its very high rating. However, an excellent pale ale.

My favorite Treehouse offering. Easy to Drink any time or day, but with enough flavor to make it count.
