Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Super Sap is an imperial interpretation of Sap brewed with the spirit of the holiday season in mind! It is intensely kettle and dry hopped resulting in an immensely hop saturated beverage. Don’t be fooled by the name - Super Sap pours a hazy yellow color in the glass and emits aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, & papaya. The flavor follows suit with a pulpy grapefruit note as the predominant characteristic. Super Sap finishes gently with a soft pine-like bitterness buoyed by a fluffy mouthfeel. We hope it can contribute positively to a festive celebration this holiday season.

Poured like OJ, with a nice settling white head and medium lace.

Aromas werent overpowering, predominantly tropical with not too much bitterness. A very smooth profile.

The flavors were much more forward.. bitter, piney, hoppy, but with a distinctly important subtle citrus presence that really mellowed this out to a perfect level.

Smooth, creamy, medium carb. Slight stickiness.

A- Tallboy can into a tasting chalice with a cloudy golden orange hue. The crown is about an inch tall with a thick and creamy consistency and very good retention. Thick blankets of lace form immediately and trail down the glass.

S- A good balance in the massive hop aroma between juicy tropical/stone fruits and citrus fruits. Mango, tangerine, mandarins, bright orange juice, grapefruit, floral, bubble gum, dank and peachy hops.

T- The sweetness here makes the juicy aspect of the beer intensify and this is joined by a newly zesty and herbal hop presence that was more subdued in the aroma. Mango, bubble gum, grapefruit, cara cara orange, citrus zest, peach, dank herbal, mandarin, clementine and piney hops. A slight hint of cereal and bread underlying the bright hops.

MF- Creamy and frothy texture to the medium bodied IPA. The carbonation is moderately high and it finishes with a zesty bitterness.

Tropical, bubble gum, citrus and zesty hop bomb that feels just a bit subdued compared to the best Tree House offerings.

Somehow this one eluded me all these year. Canned 12/20/17, thanks to rudzud.

Pours a decent foamy somewhat creamy 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, some messy lacing, very murky pale blond orange color

Nose is interesting, not quite what I was expecting, def some pine, but not a ton of actual pine sap, more juniper like and more like the berries than the needles, a big floral piney juniper component, some citrus and a faint wintergreen lingonberry thing, then it all seems to fade into citrus, tangerine and orange juice

Taste starts with a mix of a bready cereal grain with creamy wheat and oats perhaps, toasted like too, mixed with the characters from the nose, a bit of a pine but again not sap, juniper needles and berries, a bit more wintergreen and lingonberry note, a bit of resin but barely, more citrus orange zest and guavaberry (the weird one from St. Martin), a touch of pear like tree fruit, and a bit more orange tangerine juice lingering late, with a creamy malt, and orange cream notes. Drier finish, bit more bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, fairly creamy and juicy, nice fluffy carb

Overall much different than my initial experiences with sap, although Ive heard that's changed a lot since then as well, so I should give that another shot someday. Thankfully not all pine sap and resin like I expected, and a lot more complex interesting flavors.
