Notes: Our burst of Curiosity persists… ! Brewed with a potent blend of Northwest American and Southern Hemisphere hops, Thirteen pours a brilliant hazy yellow in the glass with a dense and creamy head. We experience flavors and aromas of peach, apricot, stone fruit, pungent citrus, and even a bit of honeydew melon on the edges. The bitterness here is highly restrained making C13 exceptionally easy to drink. The first time our curiosity has been canned - and certainly not the last!

The aroma explodes of juicy yellow grapefruit, pineapple, some Juicy Fruit.

The flavor follows with grapefruit, orange, a touch of Juicy Fruit, some grapefruit pith, crackery malt, and a touch of spicy resinous hops.

Yay cans... somehow my review for this got lost, but luckily I have more cans. Wasn't a huge fan of it fresh, but maybe like other Tree House IPAs it's better now.

Pours a nice frothy 1.5 finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, nice sticky lacing, typical murky blond orange creamy color.

Nose brings nice tropical note, juicy dank tropical fruits, passion fruit, papaya, with some orange juice and pith, lots of citrus orange juice, nice orange cream, and even a little tangerine, mild creamy malt base.

Taste brings lots of juicy citrus again, quite creamy too, orange cream and orange juice all over, a little pith and mild bitterness in general, mostly just orange tropical juice. Mild tropical notes, little papaya like and touch of mango, citrus tropical notes in general. Nice creamy malt base, just a hint of sweetness, with nice pith and even a touch of rind coming on the back end, and a touch of dankness. Actually as it warms and goes, it starts turning into mango juice. Finish is dry and a bit of creamy malt lingering, but lots more orange juice, a little pith, more orange cream, and little tangerine with tropical fruits lingering.

Mouth is creamy med bod, nice carb.

Overall this has gotten a lot better after a couple weeks. The dankness has dropped off, bitterness dropped off, and it's like a tropical citrus juice with nice creamy malt base, quite tasty and enjoyable, a bit of a Green character in general, like an old Green if I had to say.

Picked up a dozen cans at the brewery on the infamous 300+ turnout Thursday.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a very nice super hazy golden orange hue with a healthy fat one finger white head that fades slowly to leave light lacing and a nice creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of bright citrus peel, softer melon, I do get a little bit of stone fruit flesh. Mostly loads of orange and other citrus with a touch of malt sweetness.

T - Taste is delicious oranges, bright and juicy, with a surprising amount of melon as well. Finish is a touch malty sweet, which plays with the hops to give an over ripe fleeting apricot type taste. No bitterness on the finish, just juicy fruit. Loads of Citra taste, delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, fluffy, not bitter at all.

O - Overall this Curiosity is my favourite of the last few. Great citrus notes here, I can see why some have likened this to Julius as it is rather reminiscent. Really juicy, bright citrus. Excellent.

Appears hazy orange, as one would expect from treehouse.

Smells of faint orange and lemon, with an emphasis on the lemon. Just big tropics.

Taste follows, mild bitterness, very palatable, drinks more like a single. Juicy is more on the aftertaste. The lemon and "dankness" lingers, which is very pleasant.

The taste is light however. Just with Lights on, it felt a little weak on the flavor. Very good flavors however.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium, light medium, some prickly carbonation, not very creamy. To the style.

I would say, these treehouse pales taste like Heady Topper jr.'s.
