BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with an inch of creamy head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is lots of citrus and some berries. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit, berries, pineapple and guava. The taste is more dank than expected by the aroma. Still some citrus hop flavor along with pineapple and berries. Creamy and soft with an oily mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated with a moderate alcohol presence.

This is my second-favorite Tree House Beer. Beats Julius for a hot summer day. Tastes less heavy but still has fantastic flavor. The equivalent of this in the winter is Snow, which is a gem as well.

Canned on 10/31/18, consumed on 12/30/18.

A: Poured from the can into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is slightly hazy straw-yellow with a 1.5-finger fluffy white head that leaves behind a good amount of lacing when it (finally) recedes.

S: Not a terribly strong nose - modest tropical fruit (pineapple) and a touch of lemon zest.

T: Solid-tasting beer, with a touch of blueberry, some citrus (think red grapefruit, lemon, even limes) and a faint grassy/piney bitterness. Finishes fairly clean for a juicy NEIPA. Touch of warmth felt in the belly from the somewhat higher ABV.

M: This beer - as with most TreeHouse offerings - shines here. Juicy in feel makes it drink less like a beer and more like a glass of your morning pineapple-orange juice.

O: Very good. A stronger nose would help with the overall score, but this is a very good beer overall.

Beautiful hazy NE IPA. The flavor is on point, with a solid aroma. It's deceptively hoppy, leaving you a little more thirsty after each sip. If you can, grab a Bright and a Bright w/ citra to compare side-by-side.

I admit that I think my can was more than a week old, but, honestly, not that impressed. Kinda one-note in taste, and that note was not forward enough for me. My taste buds may have been zapped by the other beers I had first, but this really didn't impress or stand out in any way compared to the other beers I was drinking.
