Notes / Commercial Description:
In 2014, I brewed an American Pale Ale - Beneficiaries of Chance - in celebration of marrying the love of my life, Lauren (aka Tree House L-Dog). On the eve of our first anniversary, I brewed another beer for Lauren, In Perpetuity. It hopes to celebrate foreverness - in love, passion, and regardless of circumstance - the notion that what is good and beloved will last forever. In Perpetuity is brewed with a simple malt bill and two of my favorite hops - Citra, and Nelson. It pours a hazy bright orange in the glass and mixes notes of tropical fruit with a strong citrus backbone. Soft, and eminently drinkable. I hope you enjoy it.

Notes on the can design: Artist and friend Dean McKeever has created a memorable piece of artwork displaying Sand Beach in Acadia National Park at night - a magical place that everyone in New England should visit... especially at night.

Might be my favorite of the Treehouse beers I got to try. Had this at a University of Nevada football game. Pours a yellow color with some hop haze going through it, 1/2" white head. Smell those Citra hops, they're in no small quantity here. But even that amount of Citra can't compete with the imperial dank march of the Nelson hop. And for comparison, I just reviewed Nelson the Greeter from Port, and this blows the doors off that beer. And I'm a guy born in San Diego, the anti-homer. Just crushes you with all kinds of tangerine, papaya and marijuana dankness all over this beer.

Taste is pretty dope too. All that citrus and tropical fruit flavor over a body that is supportive, but offers no clashing flavors. Body isn't all smoothed out like a hazy, its soft, but still has an almost hybrid like malt presence between NE and West Coast. Has a bitterness level probably around 45 ibu. Carbonation appropriate. This hit the spot. While all Treehouse I've had has been very good, its been slightly (Abstraction aside) below what everyone else thinks. This one made me believe the hype.

Canned on 12/4/18; consumed on 12/6/18 - making this one about 55-60 hours old.

A: Poured into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy yellow-golden with a small whitish head, which leaves behind some rings of lace.

S: Really nice nose jumps out of the glass: orange-pineapple juice with a touch of earthy spice.

T: Hop juice. Citrus - grapefruit (pith and peel), oranges, lemon. Pineapple juice. Some sweeter tropical fruit as well (mango, papaya, ripe melon). Hint of peach or apricot too. Finishes surprisingly clean given all that flavor - though there is a hint of stone fruit and citrus lingering on the palate. Really, really well balanced.

M: Soft pillowy Tree House feel; drinks a little bit lighter than medium in heft.

O: It's become pithy to say this, but this beer is eminently crushable. I don't think I would ever get tired of drinking this beer. Phenomenal. Big shout-out to Bill and Michele for the delivery of an insanely fresh nectar of the gods.

Excellent IPA full of hop juiciness. Citra stand out enhanced with a very slight dryness/tartness likely from the drier Nelson. Subtle malt notes adding some biscuit and thread of caramel. Poured a beautiful merangue like head; stiff with soft peaks with great lacing. Pale soft slightly hazy orange. So remarkably smooth going down. Gentle and foamy on the tongue. A rather unique interesting IPA with its many subtle integrated complexities in an otherwise big Hop juicy brew. Would love try this one again...and again. Outstanding.
