Notes: This beer is an imperial version of Alter Ego. It is intensely kettle and dry hopped to produce a pungent and flavorful double IPA that is super pleasant to drink. It is simply and easily described as a juicy and dank citrus bomb.

From a 16oz can dated 11/15/22 into a tulip. Can message: "Keep cold drink fresh" BA description says 8.2% abv. Can says 8%.

Pours an opaque brownish orange with about one finger of white head. Great retention, excellent lacing.

Major aroma alert: Pineapple, oranges, mandarins, melon and juicy fruit gum.

Juicy taste-big juicy taste. Maybe not as distinct as the nose. Citrus juice, pineapple. Also some citrus rind bitterness. Light earthy notes. Incredibly well-balanced juice and bitterness.

Soft but thick, full-bodied mouthfeel. Balanced bitterness and juice aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation.

Wow. Great one right here folks. Loving it.

Pours a hazy orange yellow color. Super juicy tropical flavors, and about as dank as Tree House gets outside of the Bright series. Slightly floral, with a subtle grapefruit taste. It's smooth and silky as most Tree House hazies end up being. Very above average beer.

Poured from a 16oz can into pint glass in October 2022. There was a canned date of 04/19/22 @ 05:59:33 on the bottom of the can. I bought this at the brewery, and drank about 2 months from purchase.

Appearance: Deep gold color with 2-finger white head. It is deep with a very hazy complexion, like many New England IPAs. Head is very thick, and it lasts a minute, leaving a small covering. There is a medium amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong aroma of citrus and pine, as well as some hops and pineapple. The citrus and pine aromas dominates the other aromas.

Taste: Bitter taste from the hops with a moderate sweetness like citrus. The sweetness and bitter edge are well-balanced. Has a very nice after-taste that lasts a moderate amount of time. Overall a nice balance and very drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Average alcohol, which matches the 8.2% listed on the can.

This is an excellent New England IPA. It has a nice mix of citrus, hops, and other flavors, which makes it enjoyable. Another outstanding IPA from Tree House. I like the overall balance, and would buy this again.

Poured on 5/7/2022 from a 16oz can that was purchased at the brewery on 4/29/2022 into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a very hazy dark gold color, with a large white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains strong juicy citrus and tropical fruits, floral and dank hops and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste likewise starts out with strong sweet and juicy flavors of citrus and tropical fruits. Then a strong but not over-powering floral and dank hops bitterness quickly follows. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings an excellent balance. The after-taste is hoppy and sweet.

M: Very crisp and very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean for the style.

O: Very tasty, goes down extremely easily, not too filling, well-disguised kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent 2NEIPA to drink for a very long time.

Pours a hazy orange yellow color with a medium bodied but sticky white colored head that laces the glass on the way down. Smells of a treehouse - sweet toasted malts and then citrus and floral hop aromas to finish off the nose. The taste is sweet toasted malts, and then floral and hops finish off with a grapefruit taste. It's smooth, real silky, medium bodied, perfect amount of carbonation. Overall, good beer.

Pours more like a west coast IPA with a dank nose. Surprising mild flavor with super smooth finish. This is really a nice beer and super juicy. Very good.

Pours a hazy dirty straw color with over a finger of head. The nose is predominantly dank with some piney notes in the background. The flavor has notes of orange juice and grapefruit juice with a pithiness on the finish.

This offering is super juicy but while the finish is hoppy, it simply lacks the bitterness that I expect in a top-shelf DIPA. It's tasty, interesting and worth trying once but I wouldn't make it a repeat purchase.

Another heavy hitting treehouse beer. Faintly bitter, earthy dank underpinning the juicier elements.

Pours a hazy medium straw color, abundant foamy head that lasts. Huge hoppy aroma, loads of overripe mango, massive pineapple, dank guava. Some citrus as well. Remarkable. Very flavorful. Loads of ripe tropical fruits mix with pithy citrus notes. Very juicy, semi sweet with no bitterness. Good carbonation. Overall an excellent DIPA. Would buy again.
