look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Missed out on cans because I was on the west coast and they sold out at 3, but the mother came through for me on Thursday with a growler! Thanks mom!

L - brownish orange paint. Thick, hazy, and milky. Orange spackled head looks positively delicious. Dotted lacing.

S - getting huge wafts of juicy mango, pineapple, and papaya two feet from the glass. Deep, resonating, wide-open orange. Toasty, bready orange. Expansive and focused. Hints of peach and orange cream.

T - refreshing and soothing. Pineapple creamsicle and creamy peach. Melon gives it a powerful, penetrating focal point like standing at the peak of a huge juicy mountain. Orange, vanilla, and soft mangoey candy. Drinks a little sweeter than the ABV suggests. Has a similar sweetness to JJJuliusss. Finishes bold with a commanding bite. This is a good one.

F - pillowy is goddamn right. Low, tingling carb. Silky, velvety, and chewy. Like drinking a dream.

O - one of the best Curiosities yet. Signature Tree House juice. Like biting into a soft peach. I can feel the fuzz on my lips and the soft, stringy, gooey center. Heavenly. Only wish I had more.

Picked up some cans of this at the release day.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a super super murky deep golden orange with a good two finger creamy white head that fades super slowly to leave thick sticky lacing and a creamy blanket. The color is completely solid, almost like a glass of orange juice just darker hued. It's about a turbid as something could possibly be. The head though, that is what puts it over the top. Retention is immaculate.

S - Aromas of citrus peel, oranges, candied peels, light almost honey sweetness, little bit of grapefruit flesh, very very slight tropical notes, pineapple mostly, and even a bit of melon but it plays second fiddle to the citrus on the nose. With all the other aromas competing with the citrus it actually makes me wish the citrus was more muted, so the other aromas would shine a bit more.

T - Taste is very nice musk melon flavour, little bit of pineapple, nice juicy lightly sweet citrus notes. The finish has decent lingering bitterness, like the oils on a citrus rind. Pleasantly surprised by the strength of the melon flavour which works to balance the orange and grapefruit. The malts are super light, alcohol nonexistent.

M - Mouthfeel has the usual Tree House carbonation; light and fluffy with just enough carbonation to give it an initial burst of sharpness.

O - Overall this was a very solid IPA from Tree House. The head retention was just spot on and the flavour had a nice balance of orange and melon, I just wish the nose was a bit more balanced. Still though, this was another winner from Nate and crew.

Sweaty, danky nose full of stonefruit and citrus zest. In the way that some of the best TIPA's can be mistaken for below 8%, this one is deceptive; the flavor profile is Incredibly complex for the ABV. Apricot bomb. I would drink this forever if I could. Shouts out to my plug!

Sampled from a growler poured 2 hours ago. Color is burnt orange and very murky. Smell is not as pronounced and fruity as other TH offerings but pleasant. Initial taste is very light and crisp. Citrus tastes that are very light and fleeting lead way to a very silky and rich mouthfeel. The flavor seems so fleeting, that the after taste is almost watery before becoming pleasantly bitter. A unique flavor profile for me. I am not completely sure what to make of it.

Golden orange and hazy, creamy head. Smells like peaches, mango, melon... taste is amazingly juicy. Sweet melons and tropical fruits, definitely recognizable yeast - the yeast reminds me of mosaic hops even though I know they aren't in there! Sweet honey/orange flavor at the very end. I always find the flavor of lower ABV NEIPAs thins out as you drink them, though. Also this is very, very sweet. Fizzy and fluffy and creamy and easy to drink.

Canned today and drank today in a Tree House tulip glass; another excellent beer in the Curiosity series (of which I have only tried a handful); however not my favorite one I have tried overall (which is far and away Curiosity 27) due to a slight back end medicinal taste/bitterness that tends to linger

This beer is absurdly good. Color and look is just like juice machine...to me its like the single IPA version of juice machine on the taste and nose as well. I've had curiousity 29-34....all of them since I became obsessed with tree house, and this is my favorite one of the series. 32 was a close second.

I don't usually leave reviews but after the first guy essentially called this a bitter IPA I had to write something. If this is bitter than I'm a billionaire. This reminds more of Lights On than an IPA and it's friggin delicious. Nice deep color, perfect nose, taste follows the nose, the exceptional Treehouse mouthfeel, and you just want to keep drinking more.

I'm a Treehouse fanboy for sure but this is just delicious.

I gave a couple to friends and will drink the rest in 1 week intervals. This was my first Curiosity beer and I really hope they make this again. Cheers!

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque golden orange color with a finger of fluffy white head. The head sticks around awhile, before settling into a halo around the glass. Leaves some cobwebs of lace along the way.

The aroma is just stupid. Absolutely stupid. Orange rind, peaches, pineapple, and grapefruit assault my nostrils, before a wave of melon and cantaloupe follow behind. The back end is piney and dank, with the slightest hint of honey malt.

The flavor is a bit more straightforward, with notes of oranges, pineapple and peaches. Finishes piney and bitter with very little malt presence.

The feel is a bit lighter in body than expected from Tree House. Not as pillowy soft or smooth as expected, with moderate carbonation. Goes down creamy with some mild lingering bitterness.

Overall, a very good IPA that is possibly the most bitter beer I've had from Tree House. The simcoe definitely makes its presence known. Can't wait to see how this holds up after a couple weeks.

Looks like golden hop milk. Cloudy with white head and lacing sheening down the sides of the glass. Smells of hops and guava, passion, and grapefruit. Tastes on par with a little honey like sweetness to balanced the hoppy bitterness.
