Notes: A new American Pale Ale brewed with buckets (literally) of Southern Hemisphere hops. Moment pours a gorgeous hazy yellow in the glass and gives off aromas of juicy fruit gum, pineapple, and passionfruit. The flavors follows suit with a big punch of young pineapple, grapefruit, and orange rind. We even get a bit of cantaloupe. A vibrant beer from the can, or poured into your favorite tulip… Subsist in the moment!

Another beer with a typical hazy yellow color, with a great fresh smell of pine and fruit. The taste is crisp with an aftertaste of guava and mango. Very well carbonated.

Outstanding pale ale from the always amazing Tree House. 3/3/20 date printed on can so this one was nice and fresh. Pours a thick luscious hazy yellow color with some fluffy white head and nice small rings of lingering lacing. Smells of fresh topical mango, pineapple, grapefruit, melon, orange, guava and passion fruit. Also some creamy vanilla, malt, bread, weaker floral hops. Taste follows the nose, incredible balance and juiciness, so flavorful and goes down so easy. Felt a little lighter than some of their NE style IPAs but otherwise was just as delicious as their go-to beers. Silky smooth, pillowy soft mouthfeel with perfect carbonation - tough to beat this mouthfeel. An outstanding beer.

It pours an evenly hazy orange-julius-with-creamer color with a big, jello-like white head, easily rouseable, streaky lacing. The aroma is packed with orange creamsicile, mango sorbet, a hint of mossiness. A creamy, almost pithy pseudo bitterness atop a bready malt body makes up the flavor. It is fluffy with a nice crisp bite from the carbonation. this is a very straightforward beer with a great feel and an explosive aroma. Just delicious par for the course for this brewery and a nice take on an APA and a little less of the juiciness that dominates their stouter hoppy beers.

16oz can, dated 08.02.2019, poured into a Tree House snifter glass.

The beer pours a very hazy pale straw color, orange and golden hues with a foamy white head that crests about a finger high with excellent retention and wonderful lacing. The aroma is pleasant, soft melange of tropical fruits, light citrus juice with a floral bouquet and a strong backbone and pale biscuit malt, grainy with sweet yeast and mineral water. The flavors are nice, very fruity, tropical punch of mango, pineapple, guava and melon while an element of orange makes this feel adequately juicy. The sweet yeast and floral character of this beer is very apparent though there is a moderate bitter element, orange peel, some grassiness but primarily this beer feels very sweet as the maltiness of this beer accelerates as it warms. The mouthfeel is good, coating and lively with a pillowy medium body that finishes easily with a mild dry bite.

Verdict: A good pale ale from Tree House. It's very sweet, lots of bright fruit flavors with a fragrant floral character and the grains only seem to emphasize this. Refreshing for sure, but ultimately a one dimensional experience, albeit easy and pleasant.

Pours a bright yellow gold color with a 2 finger white dense, silky head. Nice retention.

Aroma is fairly pungent with mostly stone fruit notes, maybe white nectarine and a little peach.

The taste is similar with an initial wave of unsweet, dry nectarine and maybe grape. The lack of sweetness makes the light astringency pop out a little more, which I don't like as much. Still, the flavor is pleasant, nothing "off". The finish has a touch of cantaloupe, but otherwise follows the same flavors. Pale malt is tough to recognize with all the hop flavor, but this is a good thing I think.

Feel is very soft, a tad too thin in body, though this is an APA. Bitterness is just not recognizable.

This is a pale with a lot of flavor on the more etheral, less tropical side of hops - a nice change up from big citrus. However it leaves me wanting a little more from it, something hard to put a finger on. I would like not want to grab this one if I were down there getting cans. Don't let that turn you away though, as this is my tastes and there is really nothing offensive at all in this one.

Present Moment pours a beautiful hazy yellow with a thick and rich 2-finger head. The smell is fruity with grapefruit and pineapple and a hint of stone fruit and what can only be described as Juicy Fruit gum. The taste, like the nose is fruit forward with pineapple, peach and a pronounced cantaloupe sweetness. Just a hint of hop bitterness but thicker then expected mouthfeel.

Canned 02/27/19, 11:19:07, 'IMAGINARY RULE BOOK I KEEP WITHIN MY HEAD'.

The pour is a pale golden color, with heavy white head that bubbles up over three fingers in height. It dissipates slowly, leaving gobs of sticky, frothy lace retention all around the inside of the glass as the beer settles.

The nose on this instantly hits you with pineapple, hints of candied grapefruit and bubble gum. It's not overly sweet by any means, with the nose itself being fairly subtle at first and only continuing to open up as it warms.

The pineapple returns in the flavors, although followed up this time with a much heavier predominance of citrus as well as a hint of stone fruit dryness as well. A fairly light Pale Ale that hints at a subtle complexity but at the same time doesn't give that "oomph" that I quite wanted. There's a bit of breadiness in the finish as well.

Crisp, clean body to this beer, with an almost seltzery carbonation that gives the beer a light amount of dryness that finishes with a touch of lingering bitterness.

16 oz. can. Very murky orange. Smells of fruity hops with something like lime and passionfruit or some sort of acidic fruit. Grapefruit pith behind it. Tastes of orange, lime, passionfruit, all sorts of fruity hop flavors. Pleasant bitterness in the back end with a chewy and oaty malt profile. Medium body, kinda thick for a pale ale. Easy drinking and full of flavor, though.

Super hazy golden pour. Strong, straight-from-the-hip fruit flavors courtesy of a blend of Southern Hemisphere hops. Really deep and flavorful. A solid hop experience.
