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!

This is the best nose on a beer I’ve ever encountered. It’s one of those beers that you smell and the only thing you can do is laugh.

Huge aroma of overripe mango, peach and a hint of pineapple. Definitely some papaya and guava as well. If you keep inhaling it comes at you with lemon and orange notes. You also definitely get that mosaic/berry note. It’s hard to believe.

The taste isn’t quite as complex as the nose but still insanely delicious. Huge overripe mango up front with peach and papaya as well. Tropical fruit for days. Balances out on the backend with a nice citrusy drying quality. How a beer that is hopped this much is so balanced with only a medium bitterness is astounding. Mouthfeel is obviously great, like all treehouse offerings.

One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Poured out of can into tulip glass.

Pours a thicker, light orange color with about a finger's worth of white foamy head.

A very nice tropical fruit smell. Mango hits hard, but it's a very nice mix.

Very juicy, I'm getting mango on the taste as well. It's a very nice beer, very easy to drink.

It has a little bit lighter than usual feel, not much is left after each drink.

Overall a very delicious beer. Does not taste like an 8% beer.

Finally got some of this and since doppelganger is my favorite beer i have even higher hopes for this. Doing side by side with doppel this should be fun. Pour looks great wth hazy orange cloud sitting right there looking at me. Looks almost the same as doppel. The nose is sharp orange and grapefruit rind while the doppel is a little softer. Some light grassy notes seem to be floating in there as well. First sip..... mouthfeel is. Excellent. Coats the palate well. Taste is mild for about a milisecond then hits with incredible bitter orange and tangerine with strong mango, pineapple, quickly leading into splashes of tropical fruit juice and papaya that fade quickly and ends with dry bitterness. Not much aftertaste and that leaves you wanting more rather quickly. No alcohol noted by me. The flavors all become more well blended as the beer warms. This beer is a little more harsh than doubleganger with stronger flavors and less aftertaste. More in your face doesn't mean better though as doubleganger, being more subtle, has its own pluses. This beer is awsome and while it may have stronger and sharper flavors ,dopple has a softness to it that seems to play with my palate with more complexity. Overall get some if You can. Was worth every penny after freezing my butt off for 2 hours in 20 degree weather.
