A: Poured from the can into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy straw-yellow with a small whitish head.

S: Not too strong on the nose - primarily hoppy tropical fruit. Pleasant, just not a strong nose.

T: Juicy hops dominate - pineapple tropical fruit and papaya, with some grassiness and a modest earthiness at the finish. A wee bit of heat from the ABV lingers at the finish.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is on the low end.

O: Very good. Not the best beer from Treehouse that I've ever had, but solid.

This is a solid 4.5 rating. Great earthy, fruity smell that opens up to a mellow breeze of rejuvination. Tastes of pine and honeydew with mango and papaya. There is an upfront bite that fades quickly and leaves you wanting more. Get this beer while you can. Still drinking amazing over 1 month after canning.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Canned 8/11/17; drank 9/9/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big off-white head; frothy lace.

Orange citrus, grapefruit & dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Dry wheat & orange citrus flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish. No booze heat.

A nice nose & mouthfeel, but this was too dry to really enjoy. A misfire from Tree House.

Really dank and resinous but it didn't capture my heart like the way 40 did. Bit heavier on the body and more chewy. Still a really solid beer and another great offer in the Curiosity series.

Canned 8/11, thanks to rudzud

Pours a huge frothy thick 3 finger head that fades slowly, sticky lacing, murky nectar yellow

Nose alittle sweet malt creamy oats, mild citrus, pineapple, a little grapefruit, fair amount of pith, touch tropical like papaya, little melon rind

Taste brings a little cracker doughy wheat and oat malt creamy, fluffy, a bit of sweetness, quickly into big hops again but not explosive, plenty of grapefruit, pithy, a little orange cream, papaya, touch of tropical, candied orange peel, melon rind. Finish is drier but sticky, a touch of warming booze late, lingering grapefruit and orange cream.

Mouth is med bod, very creamy, a little light on the carb, faint warming booze mostly late.

Overall not bad, def an enjoyable DIPA that drinks well, not at the top of Tree House beers though.

Can stamped 08/11/17

Cloudy pale orange with a fat creamy head that settles to a soapy covering. Creamy, candy-like hop aromas: pineapple, lime, spruce, leafy grass. Continued creamy Tree House hoppy flavor - drinks lighter than its ABV would indicate. Peach, lemon/lime, clementine, mellow spicy green pine, melon, and pineapple gummy bears. Medium-plus bodied, creamy feel with a decently dry finish. No lingering sweetness or overblown stickiness, just another quality easy-drinking IPA from these guys.

This one pours the classic TH opaque hazy orange with a big foamy off white head that leaves big patches of thick lacing.

The nose is subtle but features mild notes of pineapple, mango, and passionfruit.

Taste brings pineapple and peaches up front, followed by some odd raw vegetable and vanilla bean notes, and a weird herbal aftertaste. I don't like the taste of this beer.

Mouthfeel is medium. Carbonation seems high for a Tree House IPA. Is TH getting lazy with the Curiosity series or am I just spoiled and jaded?
