In PerpetuityIn Perpetuity
Notes: 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.

2 months old. Can to wine glass.

L: Pours a hazy yellow with a pillowy white head that leaves thick rings of lacing. No floaters.

S: Tropical notes of mango and guava paired with ripe tangerine and strawberries packed in an almost vanilla-like bubblegum sweetness.

T: Tropical and citrusy, but also grassy and even a bit earthy. Mango, tangerine, strawberries and white grapes. THs trademark bubblegum sweetness is very present in the taste as well. Bitter finish, slightly zesty.

F: Full and juicy. Smooth and a bit creamy. Proper carbonation.

O: Fantastic beer. Bursting with flavor, even though its (relatively) low ABV is clearly perceptible. Nicely balanced and very complex. Might be the best (single) IPA I've had so far.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Look: A mango yellow with a strong white head that dissipates to a glossy surface with a foamy perimeter.

Lacing: A fairly broken soapy lacing. You can tell where each sip ended but no full rings were established.

Body: Literally looks like a glass of orange juice with a subtle head.

Smell: Like a great NEIPA. Subtle and balanced, like a hoppy pine tree accompanied by a well proportioned waft of citrus. A mango/orange backed by hopps smell to be exact.

Taste: Incredibly smooth, no burn, not pungent but a well balanced bittersweet juice taste with a strong fruity citrus that ends quickly with a smooth slight lactose bitter finish.

Tail end: It leaves you knowing you just sipped a top notch beer. Quite possibly one of the best New England India Pale Ales I have ever drank. Its orange juice water in terms of smoothness.

After Taste: Almost non existent other then a slight citrus reminder that ends in a very calm cream ending.

As someone who has drank multiple beers from Treehouse, micro projects to the ninth best beer on this website, I can see how this beer is rated as a 100 after almost 1,000 ratings. This beer is a true diamond in the rough.

In Perpetuity is a white whale of a beer for any beer advocate on this website, this value grows exponentially as your distance from New England increases.

Fantastic example of a NE style IPA. Look is standard hazy. Nice citrus aroma, but the taste pops big time. Amazing combo of two of my favorite hops - Citra and Nelson. These two combine for a citrus white wine/grape juice taste, but not too sweet.
The lower ABV is a plus.

Canned 9/14/22. “Be kind, love is love” stamped on the bottom of the can. Seems like a fitting message as this is review #1312 for me. IYKYK

Alright, finally time to cross another top 250 Tree House beer! This one is currently sitting at #133. I believe this is only brewed once a year so I’m happy to have made it there when they had it available. Let’s crack if open and see what it’s all about

Pours a hazy pale gold with 3 fingers of creamy off white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves decent lacing

There’s a nice bite to the nose in this one, leaning a bit more traditional than they usually do. I’m picking up on aromas of overripe cantaloupe, bready malt, peppery hops, orange zest, resin, mango juice, and light gooseberry

It doesn’t quite have the same bite in taste, but I do like it quite a bit. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting overripe mango, white wine, gooseberry, bready malt, grassy hops, light caramel, pineapple juice, and cantaloupe. The swallow brings notes of orange zest, peppery hops, caramel malt, tangerine, gooseberry, light white wine, and overripe cantaloupe

A medium body pairs with gentle tingling carbonation, resulting in a sharp and dry beer. Finishes dry and chalky, really different for them but I dig it

I really like this one. Maybe not quite as good as it’s hyped up to be, but very nicely done

Pours light hazy orange, half-inch head with moderate lacing. Nose is mango, passionfruit, fruit punch, and very light resin. Taste has light tropical sweetness, light pine and resin, with a pleasant bittering aftertaste. The finish is also on the dry side, while the mouthfeel, though not thin, isn't as silky soft as other TH NEIPAs. Overall, a nice, balanced NEIPA that stands out among other offerings.

Canned 9/17/20, tasted 11/2/2020. Really enjoyed this one! On the lighter side, as an IPA rather than a DIPA, but packed a ton of flavor in there. The smell in particular was impressive - just a powerful, appetizing aroma. The mouthfeel was a tad thin for my taste, but otherwise, a deliciously bitter and juicy hazy IPA.

I have been fortunate to get a wide variety of TH beers over the past five months and this is one of the best beers I have had of theirs. Smooth, and just plain tasty. Try it you will like it!
