Notes: Bright was created to be a clean and elegant showcase for one of our favorite hops - Mosaic! It is crafted with a simple malt bill and fermented with clean American Ale yeast to create a flavor profile that is more a function of its vibrant fresh ingredients than an expression of yeast character. Bright’s aroma is a cornucopia of citrus dank… The taste follows suit with notes of grapefruit, sweet berries, and clementine with a gentle orange rind finish. She is dry, soft, deceptively juicy and adequately bittered resulting in a very approachable yet pungent Double IPA. We hope you find this bit of a departure as enjoyable as we do!

Canned 8/18/21. “A true O.G. “ stamped on the bottom of the can

Bright is among the last of the famous Tree House IPAs I have yet to try. This one currently sits as the 39th highest rated IIPA, and 423rd overall. They do have some other heavy hitters I’ve yet to try, but it’s always nice to try a new one that most people consider to be world class. There’s no fruit or anything going on with this one unlike the Cobbler and King Cobbler I had the last 2 days, so I’m excited to get back to the no frills style of TH

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

Oh wow, this one is particularly soft in the nose, but all the subtle notes come together to make something greater. I’m picking up on aromas of creamy pineapple, papaya, cantaloupe, mandarin orange, toasted coconut, bready malt, grassy hops, and light toasted grain

This is exceptionally smooth in taste while still keeping an assertive hoppiness in play for most of the experience. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting orange rind, creamy cantaloupe, peach, lightly tart pineapple, grassy hops, and crackery malt. The swallow brings notes of cantaloupe, dank mango, piney hops, peaches and cream, bready malt, white pepper, and light honey

A medium full body pairs with moderately gentle carbonation, resulting in a super slick beer. Finishes off dry with a balanced sweetness

This one is very good. For a style they brew all the time, this one stands out as unique. It goes down super easy for the abv. I gotta get the variants now

Watching from the east coast the nba finals game 5 la vs Miami. It’s late and I plucked this one from the fridge, intrigued by the name. I get the dry, orange peel, maybe even piney taste balanced with an effervescent mouth feel and a quick finish. Pours a hazy pale yellow, thin head. Nice citrus aroma. The hops bitterness doesn’t linger.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Tree House, Willi Becher glass; best by 05/12/20, code HOP CANDY.
A: Pours a hazy, orange amber color with ochre highlights, a two to three finger, foamy, white head, solid persistent retention (a finger) and foamy, broad rings of lacing that just seem to quit.
S: Fruity aromas of tangerine, pink grapefruit, and nectarine with strong barley presence (at first), pine and basil notes. Vegetal aromas persist and strengthen as it warms.
T: More semisweet than semidry. Palate fruity like the nose: tangerine, ripe nectarine, pink grapefruit). Vegetal elements not in evidence, except briefly at the beginning. Moderate, highly balanced, and refreshing bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with a light to moderate effervescence. Creamy and smooth.
O: I had Baby Bright yesterday, a very sessionable AIPA, but really do prefer Bright. Were it available locally, I would always have some of both in the 'fridge.

Poured from a can (12May2020) into a pint glass

L: turbid yellow orange (makes me think of a more opaque mix of yellow and orange gatorade, if that makes sense), with a very dense white head and matching lacing

S: very pungent, sweet, fruity nose. Think tangerine, orange, pineapple, with a dank weed aroma lurking in the background. There’s a smooth, creaminess that’s come out as it’s warmed a bit

T: like the name, leads with very bright citrusy flavors. Good amount of tangerine/orange (can mentions grapefruit and clementine, which I definitely get after reading) plus a rich tropical papaya flavor. Moves to a nice lingering bitterness for a medium-long finish

F: medium carbonation, medium body, slightly drying, very drinkable

O: solid flavors, unique nose, and great bitterness. Very drinkable, really excellent - man I just like TH haha

16oz. can served in a tulip. Less hazy than an Tree House IPA I've had in a while. Pours a lovely burnished orange that's more translucent than hazy, with a loose, 1/8th inch off-white head that quickly disperses into a consistent slick that coalesces into a tight band around the shoulders. Nose expresses citrus, pith and a hint of pine. Taste consistent with nose with a pleasant, malt character across the backbone. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (much closer to light) with an assertive carbonation. Overall, solid and drinkable.

Too bright, without enough redeeming qualities to make it interesting. I like hazier. The Nelson version of this has the redeeming qualities, though.

At first blush it was stingingly sharp. It felt like acid scorching my palate. As it warmed up and my palate kind of warmed up to it, it felt much more enjoyable to drink. Reminds me of Nebco supernaut. All mosaic, with a similar build/malt profile... but this has a bit more sharpness. *This beer definitely morphed as it warmed. I enjoyed the last sip even more than the first. I noticed that these Treehouse beers deserve time to be tasted. They benefit from warming up a bit.
