L - meteor showers. Pours a light pineapple juice coming out of the can, but settles into something darker. A flat ripe mango color with generous head. Nice and fluffy.

S - pineapple galore. The real grassy, fresh-picked variety. I can revision the stringy things getting stuck in my teeth as I pull the meat away from its bones. All that from a sniff! Candied citrus follows with an astringent alcohol warmth. Mild crackers at the very end.

T - starts strong with a potent upfront flavor combo of pineapple, peach, light coriander, and a grassy, yet non-bitter green mango. The middle brings a long-lasting candied lime. Slightly tangy, slightly sweet. The bitterness realty comes in toward the end, mixing with a dry, bready aftertaste reminiscent of pale ales and orange peels. Gotta be the piney, gritty, resinous Simcoe that also imparts a fresh, herbal presence throughout. Leaves the mouth strangely cool, like the aftermath of a mint. A couple weeks on the can brings in fresh banana bread and walnuts.

L - gentle and tame for its ABV. Feels light at first, but doesn't break apart. The carbonation lowers, and slickness materializes. Almost chalky on the very finish due to the strong dryness.

O - a departure from traditional Tree House juice, yet an even further departure from other Tree House departures from juice. This is a unique animal. Raw, earthy pineapple and an interesting combination of hops that create a bitter, sweet, tangy, and dry brew. Very well done. Curious how it ages over the coming weeks!

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.

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?

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.
