BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This batch of Bright was created to be a clean and elegant showcase for a notoriously delicious hop - Citra! It is crafted with a simple malt bill and fermented with clean American Ale yeast to create a flavor profile that is more a function of its vibrant fresh ingredients than an expression of yeast character. Bright w/Citra’s aroma is a citrus explosion. The taste follows suit with notes of orange juice, grapefruit, and tangerine with a gentle finish. She is dry, soft, and adequately bittered resulting in a very approachable and thirst quenching

Hazy light golden color with white head. Aroma has ripe citrus fruits, mango and hop resin on a clean malt background. Taste starts bittersweet and hoppy with citrus rind and resiny hop flavors. Aftertaste lingers with a good amount of bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A more west coast approach of the style but it's well made and tasty.

a: muted orange color with some amber & dark yellow notes. slightly hazy. 2 finger frothy white head

s: orange peel, sweet clementines, biscuits, crackers, creamsicle, tangerine, and some apricot

t: orange and grapefruit upfront. apricot and tangerine behind that with a touch of alcohol and hop burn. some bitterness from the grapefruit towards the end, and a nice hit of malt sweetness

m: medium mouthfeel with low carbonation and mild stickiness from the sweetness

o: an ok beer here, but i feel there are better out here. the hop burn and alcohol don't harmonize so well in here. it's not bad, i've just had better

From Zombier. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 5. Plenty of nice orangey notes in a good, smooth body. Didnt have a strong citra profile, but is really nice and original with its orangyness

Wow, another Treehouse beer that's almost exactly like the rest.
I generally like Citra, so I was excited... but this one didn't deliver as I'd hoped.
All in all an ok beer.
About 10 days in the can.
Hazy yellow/orange color. Big foamy head that melts fairly fast.
Smells like tropical fruit. Tastes alright; not too bitter, not too interesting.
I'm a week into a mix pack from the revered Treehouse and I can confirm- you had one, you had 'em all. More or less. And this isn't the best of the batch. It's lower tier. A bit flat.

Somehow locked this one down in Chico from a local who gets beer mail. He left it on my porch at 5am on his way to the airport early today and it was still frosty from the morning chill when I got to it. Cracked it same day after discgolfin and a hot shower and holy HOONTAH is this delish. A crisp hit of bitterness turns into the exact feeling of drinking an orange julius. First Treehouse offering i've tried. If I ever conjure enough $ to go on an east coast beercation I will be definitely stopping in Mass. to try other offerings from the source! Short story long: DIDNT DISAPPOINT!!

Pour is orange gold. Definite taste of Orange and citrus. Very drinkable and in my opinion one of the best treehouse offerings. Solid easy coast IPA.

I am not the biggest fan of Citra as I get a bit of the dreaded cat piss. I much prefer the galaxy version. That being said the Citra here is very well presented.

16oz can: This one pours a murky golden color with a hint of orange. Good head and lacing. Good nose. Citrus and tropical aromas are predominate. Orange and tangerine stand out. The taste is good. A fair amount of bitterness. Orange, other citrus and tropical hop flavors. Nice!
