BEER INFO

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

Style: New England 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!

Very solid double IPA. Basically doppelgänger with more hops. Extremely well balanced and soft. An amazing beer. Mouthfeel is smooth and balanced with crispness and cirtus.

Week old can of this stuff. Typical Tree House IPA look but two shades deeper in its hazy peach tone. Thinner head than many other of their IPA's. Similar citrusy smell as all other Tree House IPA's. At first sip though you can taste the power of this beer. It has a strong first attack on the pallet. Not too much bitterness in the aftertaste... or if it is, it is overwhelmed by the lingering power of the first attack. Medium amount of tiny carbonation. All in all, not bad.

TREE HOUSE DOUBLEGANGER DIPA 9/30/18

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip pint.

a: Cloudy orange with an inch thick white head which receded to heavy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Strong citrus leaning to the trademark TH orange and grapefruit pith.

t; Powerful citrus overwhelm all else, pretty heavy hop bite. Dry finish includes some lingering bitterness, but not as much as was expected.

m; "Chewy" medium plus, excellent body and carbonation tingle.

o; A top flight TH DIPA, smooth, surprisingly balanced as tasting continues, loaded with hop citrus flavor and very satisfying. The is the second one I have had, first one last week I was not home to do a review because I was on a weekend vacation after stopping on the way at the brewery, and it seemed a bit over-the-top bitter. This one is a knockout, and will surely be rated near the top of my all time list, as was Present Moment before it. It's quite the quintessential New England DIPA, rated in the top 25 on BA for good reason.
