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!

Canned on 1/30/18, consumed on 3/17/18, making this about 6 weeks old.

A: Poured into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is milkshake-hazy light-orange, with a nice 1.5-finger ecru-colored foamy head on top, which retains well and leaves nice foamy lace on the glass.

S: Juicy tropical fruit - pineapple, primarily, with a touch of something sweeter as well (papaya or mango maybe), along with citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).

T: Very nice. Citrusy - both oranges and grapefruit (orange creamsicles and orange or even rainbow sherbet come to mind more than once), but with a lot of tropical fruit as well - i.e., pineapple and ripe melon. Finishes with an herbal or leafy hop taste as well, and there's a hint of drying alcohol on the finish, with warmth from that 8.2% ABV felt in the belly.

M: Medium in heft, maybe a tiny bit fuller than that. Juicy in feel.

O: Excellent. I had a bit of a cold recently, which meant this sat in my fridge a bit longer than I would've preferred. But at 6 weeks old, this is still an excellent beer. Presumably a few weeks ago it would've been even better.

Poured from can dated 02/02/18 “New England vs Everybody” An incredible fruit explosion. Nose and taste espouse mango/melon/grapefruit and OJ with a hint of straw and resin on the back end for full balance. Mouth features perfect carbonation levels to keep it light and fluffy but is also smoothie like as it envelopes and coats the inside of your entire mouth...think Very Green in this aspect. My most favorite Tree House beer burps to date.

Canned on 02/02/18, 11:13:47, ‘NEW ENGLAND VS. EVERYBODY’.

Beautiful hazy orange pour. Bubbly white head with no clinging lace at first, but as it warmed up a bit a nice even layer circled the glass.

Awesome sweet nose, balanced with tropical pineapple, hints of mango, and tons of citrus. Slightly bitter, dank backbone. Even some malt presence as it warms.

Dank and citrusy right off the bat. More tropical fruit, with bitter hops throughout that linger in the finish. The balance is awesome, and you get a little bit of everything.

The mouthfeel is fantastic. Juicy, smooth, and creamy, with a pillowy softness and low but present carb.
