I really liked this one. Color was a dark yellow orange and completely opaque as Tree House is famous for. Aroma was a melange of tropical fruits. Mouthfeel was thick and creamy with amazing glass lacing and head retention. Taste follwed the nose...pure juicy fruity goodness. Truly enjoyed drinking these out in the sun.

Poured from 16oz can into Tree House tulip glass. Reviewing the last of my batch of these, but it has not fallen off that much at all. Pours a hazy, dark orange, with a nice, soft head. Bubbly lacing is left on the glass. Smell is of soft tropical fruits, mango, dank hops, and sweet malts. This Curiosity tastes of ripe mango, tropical fruits, a bit of pineapple, a hint of bitter hops, and a nice sweet malt backbone that does not overpower the fruit/hops. The mouthfeel on this is so smooth, but you want to let it linger in your mouth for a few seconds to enjoy it all and take it all in. Yet another top notch beer from rural Massachusetts. Cheers!

Another big thanks to rudzud, canned 4/19

Pours a large frothy creamy 1.5 finger head that fades slowly, thick soapy lacing, super murky milk-shake darker brownish tan pond water kinda ugly color.

Nose big citrus, tangerine, orange cream, lots of creamy oats, some tropical notes with big mango, a hint of pineapple and guava, an almost banana like ester note, stone fruit apricot peach thing as well, lots of citrus and great blended fruits, like a fruit salad.

Taste brings lots of creamy malt and oats, touch toasted oat note, then big fruits, lots of citrus but not bitter sharp citrus more clementine, tangerine, orange cream, etc, but also loads of tropical, tons of mango, some guava and pineapple notes, again an interesting creamy banana note, papaya notes too, with mild to fair bitterness, a touch of stone fruit, and some melon rind, canteloupe, etc. finish is dry but creamy, lingering mild hop notes, lots of citrus and tropical fruits lingering, and an interesting malt character and typical Tree house yeast notes.

Mouth is med bod, very creamy, decent carb,

Overall pretty good, big creamy oat NEIPA with lots of tropical and citrus hops, nicely blended, pretty much a fruit salad of awesome hops.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Monson, MA
04 19 17
Served in a tulip
Big thanks to my friend Sean for trading me this can.

Ridiculously turbid appearance. The completely opaque, dark yellow ochre body was topped by a inch-tall, frothy, eggshell colored crown that slowly fell to a lasting collar. A spotty, craggily blanket of lacing stuck all along the glass.

The nose was amazingly hoppy and dank. Weed-like notes came through big time. This reminded me a lot of fresh bud. Tropical fruits kicked in soon as well. Tons of mango. Loads of peach and apricot too. Honeydew melon notes appeared as the beer sat. All in all, super fragrant and exotic.

The flavor profile was also amazingly hoppy and tropical fruit forward. Fresh mango notes dominated. Lots of peach and apricot as well. Citrus notes were apparent but they definitely played a supporting role. Some juicy orange and tangerine for sure. The beer turned slightly more pithy and bitter on the finish. Ruby red grapefruit came to mind. Hint of pine resin too. Just enough hoppy bitterness to keep the fruity sweetness on the front end in check.

Super soft, supple mouthfeel. Fuller bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, moderate effervescence. Really creamy and smooth on the palate.

Curiosity Thirty Four had the flavor complexity and intensity of many Tree House double IPAs but drank far easier than it's 6.7% ABV would suggest. The fact that this is a "single" IPA is truly astonishing. A number of Curiosity Series beers impressed me but this is definitely my favorite to date.
