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!

It's decent, though a bit sweet and fruity for my tastes. Not sure I've ever had a Mosaic-hopped beer I really love. I think I was secretly hoping for a more classic APA like zombie dust. Nice departure from the Murk Bombs regardless... Flexing their style chops

Canned 3.21.23 'the o.g. 4 the win!' printed on the bottom

Poured at fridge temp into a weizen glass

Pours a almost clear pale orange with an off white head. Dense lacing from where the head faded and a bit thinner as it follows down the glass. 4

Looking for mosaic notes I get some grapefruit sweet and tartness, but more just fresh and clean hoppiness perhaps a touch of oversweetness. 4.25

Hoppy, bitter- but a pleasant not chemically bitterness, some tropicals and more hops, touch of alcohol burn. 4.25

Wicked crushable body for a DIPA, lighter side of carbo, and just a touch of lingering hop oils/aftertaste. 4.5

Overall just a clean and extremely well done double that showcases clean hops and drinkability. 4.5

Canned a month ago. Glad to finally be trying the flagship in the Bright series. These are quite unique for TH beers in that after a very short period of time the haze almost completely settles out, and when properly decanted from the can results in a nearly haze-free golden body that is unlike any other hoppy offerings I've had from this brewery. This is indeed a very nice focused display of mosaic hops, overflowing with the cattiness, dankness, citrus, and berry notes that make mosaic mosaic. As a result the American yeast profile is rather uninteresting, as is the seemingly crystal/2-row heavy malt bill. This one is all about the hops.

Canned 3/21/23

Maybe my first no hazy IPA from TH.

This just oozes dankness and pungency. I get melon and citrus in abundance plus some tropical fruit. Stellar.

Pours a golden straw color with a finger of head. The nose is fairly modest for a TH offering - earthy notes with some background citrus is all that I am getting here. The flavor is pithy with more maltiness than most TH offerings. There is some grapefruit bitterness on the finish.

Pours a hazy orange color with a delightful creamy white head that laces the glass nicely. Dank citrus aromas on the nose, primarily grapefruit, ripe tangerine, and papaya.

The taste follows the nose and is nicely bitter with a full mouthfeel that is on the softer side. This is a wonderful hazy, one I could drink over and over.

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
