BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company

Style: American Double / 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

A very good IPA but no were near as good as some of the others from TH. I found the feel lacking as well.

Tree House Bright w/Citra 7/1/18

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

a: Translucent gold with an inch thick white head which receded to uneven thin surface foam and moderately dense lacing

s: Strong pine resin and citrus.

t: Follows the nose along with some dank bitterness over a medium bready malt base. Covers its higher ABV superbly..

m: Medium, very good body and light carbonation tingle.

o; A juicy, substantial DIPA, well-named for its bright appearance and taste. Great as a summer thirst and heat quencher.

16oz can dated 6/27/18.

Pours cloudy yellow with a fluffy head of white. Moderate retention and decent lacing. Peach, grapefruit, and oranges in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy, soft mouthfeel. Pithy tropicals on the palate with zero malt and a fairly hefty bitterness. Grapefruit and orange with a hint of hard peach. Finishes dry and pithy with a lingering bitterness.

Pretty tasty but a bit heavy on the bitterness and the nose is not as floral as as expected. Certainly not worth waiting in line for.

Tasted from can. Color is a hazy orange with thick white head. Looks like orange juice. Nice citrus aroma with lots of orange, tangerine and a little grapefruit. Incredibly balanced with very little bitter bite. Flavor is huge orange and tangerine, slight grapefruit, melon and some biscuity sweetness. Excellent imperial IPA.
