BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer was conceived with the intent to push the concept of Doppelganger to the limit of flavor and intensity. Both the kettle hopping rates and dry hopping rates were increased while keeping the base beer the same. The result is intense, but also surprising in its balance and softness. The mouthfeel is viscous and coating with flavors of overripe mango, dank citrus, and tropical fruit balanced by a sharp but pleasant finish. A treat to warm you up as a true New England winter takes hold!

A: The prototypical hazey NEIPA from Tree House pour with a hefty head at first and later midsize bubble head with minimal lacing.

S: Proliferating aromas of peach, honeydew melon :) , mango, passionfruit and faint guava.

T: Tropical soft juice bomb. Loaded with peach and melon / cantaloupe along with pineapple and passion juice hints. The flavors here are so soft, its really amazing how they blend together so complimentary here.

M: Thick velvety Imperial IPA with mild carbonation. Nobody does mouthfeel better in DIPAs and this is really where this beer stands out.

O: Overall the smoothest DIPA I have had from Tree House having had just about all of them spare JM, this one seemed to be the smoothest creamiest DIPA. While Doppelganger really does a great job in all the areas, one area this shines is somehow being softer than the single version of this beer. Well done

Canned today, given to me by a friend...

Look is pure bright orange, hazy delight. This beer looks thick in the pour and magnificent in the glass.
Aroma is melon and tropical fruits. Melon initially and then tropical fruits waft in after...smells amazing
Taste is exactly as the nose....melon and then a medley of tropical fruit...zero bitterness
Feel is thick...coats the mouth. Super soft carb (don't know how TH does it). Unreal drinkability
Overall, this is an amazing DIPA. My favorite TH DIPA to date

Poured from a 16 oz can into a treehouse tulip. Purchased at the brewery today.

Pours the typical treehouse, hazy bright orange body with a good 2 finger white head and spotty lacing.

Aromas are absolutely perfect. Ripe melon, citrus, tropical fruits, pineapple.

Taste is not as flavor-packed as the nose would suggest, but still extremely delicious.. smooth creamy orange, melon, a tad bit of dankness and and easy finish. Zero alcohol detected, creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation.

I don't know how they do it, but Tree House does it again with another seemingly perfect beer with the signature creaminess but unique tropical profile. Deep orange juice body, white head, massive lacing. Tropical as always but delicately layered where the creaminess deletes any possible bitterness. Tree House's talents truly shine here.

Perfect balance of juicy hops and roasted malts. Great amber color and a lovely creamy head. Nice lacing in the glass and the finishing notes are not over powering. Extremely crushable for a 7.8% beer.
