Spicy hops with a medium body. This is one of those beers that is so well balanced that it almost has the effect of canceled out flavors. Best guess at hops would be a varieties similar to Cascade and Mosaic. Can was stamped with 1/7, beer was enjoyed on 2/27.

16 oz can. Pours cloudy light orange with thin white head that fades to a thin layer that maintains, little lace. Juicy hop aroma with a little pepper. Taste is powerful juicy citrus hops with a light malt backbone, turns herbal and peppery in a quite bitter finish. Medium to full creamy mouthfeel. Lots of flavor in this pale ale, very good one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Pours an entirely clouded, orange coloured beer with a big, froth head.

Smells of an intriguing, herb infused grassiness, complimented by ripe papaya and orange. A layer of citrus peel adds to the prominent dankness, while minty herbs are quite pronounced, accentuated by the fruits.

Mouthfeel, as the typical tree house trademark, is perfect in this. Incredibly smooth and soft on the tongue, while not blocking any of the flavors at all, still allowing a nice, hoppy refreshment during the finish.

Taste mirrors the aromas in the best way possible. While producing a remarkable dankness, a great symbiosis of spicy herbs and ripe exotic fruit slowly proceeds on the palate. Lemon provides additional crispness, while mango appears incredible luscious, lending a lot of sweetness to the taste. Finishes with more mint and weed, while lemon creates a gentle, fruit entangled bitterness, thoughtfully softened by the beers creaminess.

A great experiment, headstrong and convincing. Flavors come perfectly together, featuring a unique, never before experienced herbal characteristic, blending into exotic fruit juice. Which makes this world class to me is its mouthfeel, highlighting the hops in a way which doesn't want you to drink other hoppy beers any longer.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this beer.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very nice hazy golden hue with a fat one finger head that fades to leave sticky lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of nice dankness, great tangerine aromas, nectarine, papaya. Really good light malt backbone. Really fragrant, with soft grass notes.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, decent citrus dankness, tangerines, light bitter grapefruit peel. The papaya is nice with the malts baking balance everything out. The lingering bitterness is pleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, the body is light as well. Almost a bit on the thin side.

O - Overall this beer was a solid offering from tree house. Nice finish, but, could use more carbonation.

Pours a big fluffy creamy 1 finger head, nice sticky lacing, hazy murky carrot orange yellow color.

Nose dank resinous, grapefruit peel, little grassy thing, fruity tropical must, mild citrus cream, faint pine resin, more grapefruit later, and touch of fruity bubblegum late.

Taste is nicer, fruity, tropical fruit, dank musty guava passion fruit notes, plenty of grapefruit and pith, juicy citrus flesh and zest, pretty dank but med bitterness. Nice creamy malt base, little fruity bubblegum. Lots of dank grassy flavor though that gets a little distracting.

Mouth decent creamy malt, little light, decent carb.

Overall ok, not great, there are other better ones from tree house, however I see where it wanted to go but dank resin from a mediocre batch of simcoe overpowers the great characters underneath.

Pours a lighter shade of yellow orange. Generates a nice head leaving lasting lacing. Impressive mouth feel...very Tree House representative. This beer overall is a delicious APA drinks like a bigger beer than 5.4%. Plenty of hop flavor and wonderful hop forward aroma.

The beer comes in a hazy medium to deep gold color with a fluffy white head.

The aroma hits of tangerie, melon, nectarine, mango, papaya, Juicy Fruit, crackery malt.

The flavor hints of grassiness, tons of herbaceous qualities, Juicy Fruit, along with more tangerine, melon, light honey sweetness complimented by doughy malts, onto a medium to medium plus bitterness with lingering herbs.

Good - but not special. Other than the mouthfeel, this is not in the same ballpark as any of the other Tree House beers I have had (Green, That's What She Said and Julius).

Poured from a 16 oz can dated 01/07/2015.

Pours a cloudy, bright golden orange color with a 2-finger fluffy white head. Has excellent retention, and leaves some beautiful, spotted lacing around the glass. To me, this is a flawless looking beer.

The aroma is fairly light, but offers plenty of citrus and pine notes while also remaining quite floral. A faint, crackery malt is present but extremely subtle.

I get a lot of melon and orange in the flavor, as well as the bready, dry flavor of the malt. Nice balance and complexity here. Definitely not your typical "hop bomb" APA.

The mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with low carbonation. Extremely creamy and smooth, albeit a bit dry on the end.

Overall, yet another "win" for Tree House. This beer is well-balanced, while offering a creamy mouthfeel and a fair amount of complexity. The hops are certainly present, but they do not detract from the other characters of the beer. This beer is so flavorful it's mind boggling how the ABV is only 5.4 %.

Hazy yellowish in color.

Smells mostly of fruit with a hint of citrus.
Taste is similar. Very drinkable.

Lighter mouthfeel than their IPAs but still not thin. Its very good.

I find this similar to Whirlpool by Night Shift. Both are great.

Another awesome offering from the Curiosity series. It pours cloudy and opaque like many of its counterparts. It has a fruity and floral nose and tastes similar to the other pale ales Tree House puts out (a Eureka with Citra/Lights On hybrid of sorts). Foamy mouthfeel that's a little thinner that the others from TH, but still on par with my expectations. Get some before it runs out!

L - pours a light, pale, almost greenish hue. Reminds me of green. Appears to glow radioactively!

S - fruit and flowers on the nose. Reminds me of Lights On with its guava, melony nose.

T - basically an amped up Eureka. Hits hard up front with a big bouncy melon blast, then simmers down into a dry, bready finish. Distinctly Columbus hops Contribute to the sweet dank you find in the middle.

F - soft and mellow, as with all Tree House brews. Stays light and refreshing, while densely packed enough to feel like liquid velvet.

O - another impressive offering in the Curiosity series. Looks incredible, and Tree House proves they continue to be the gold standard as far as pale ales are concerned!
