BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned 9/11/18, code WHEN YOU SMILE THE SUN IT PEAKS THROUGH THE CLOUDS.
A: Pour a very hazy, orange color with yellow highlights, a greater than one and a half inch, foamy, orange chiffon head, solid retention, and avid rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of orange, tangerine, light mango, and pine.
T: Semidry. I thought the fruit flavors were less loud and more of a papaya/ripe peach. Resiny at first; bitterness solid and acts as a counterpoise to the residual sugars.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy, rich, and smooth.
O: In Perpetuity is yet another high quality and enjoyable NEIPA from Tree House. Reminds me of the Papaya King, papaya juice drinks I used to get as a kid (in NYC), albeit with a alcohol now. A happy memory.

Can dated 9/11 from Sean (thanks!), so just over 3 weeks old.

Looks great, nice lacing and a fluffy thin head. Orange-ish.

Nose surprisingly doesn't pop, some faint pine and maybe citrus. Edit: Got better as it warmed up. Bigger notes of mango flesh, white grapes, and even more resin/pine. Even better than flavor now that it opened up (went from 4 to 4.5).

Taste is better but not huge. Slight bitterness, grapefruit, tangerine, some lemony acidity on the back end. Mostly citrus, but just OK - actually reminds me of a good WC IPA with low bitterness.

Feel is soft, as expected. Medium body, Medium-low carb.

Good beer, not great. Well balanced like a HF IPA but without the graininess.

Poured into a snifter. A bright yellow haze with a thick and resilient white head. Great lacing in the glass. White grape and tropical fruit aroma with a touch of resin. The taste followed with Nelson leading the charge. White wine flavor, dank resin, and tangerine on the finish. Pillowy soft feel. Outstanding.

08/2015 - This is hella dope; so much orange, peach, and citrus hops on the nose; plus, sweet, juicy, cream flavors on the palate; just incredible. Yum!
