BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Sssappp is a new rendition of Sap designed to push the original flavor profile to a heightened level of depth and intensity through the use of additional kettle and dry hops! Don’t let the name fool you - this beer is loaded with notes of rich red grapefruit, apricot, and earthy citrus. A supple mouthfeel and full body help lend balance to the pleasant and complex onslaught of flavors. It just feels right.

Tasted from can. Some piney and citrus aroma. A little more citrus on taste with some piney and earthy notes. Moderate to heavily bitter. Pretty solid but I like several other tree house IPAs much better.

A- The tall can pours into a snifter glass with a very hazy, almost chalky and murky golden body and a frothy white cap. The head is thick and has great retention after rising up to a finger high. Tons of webs of lace form around the glass.

S- The aroma is massive hops, which should be a surprise to no one. Overall the profile is a mix of sweet stone fruits, citrus and tropical fruit juice perhaps leaning more toward the first two. Tangerine, melon, peach, mango, bubble gum, dank weed, mint and grapefruit notes. Some general pale grain and yeast hints but the hops overshadow that.

T- I have had this brew before and this one feels softer and way more toward the flavor profile that Tree House is well known for with the juicy nectar of citrus, tropical and sweet stone fruits. The dominant flavors are melon, bubble gum, juicy grapefruit, tangerine and dank herbs with hints of mango, papaya, orange sherbet and a note of pine that seems to come and go; kind of expected more of that bitter resinous flavor. With time some raw hop flavors come out that really throw off things on the taste buds while the aroma maintains its beauty.

MF- The body is of medium thickness and it has that certain TH mouthfeel that brings a chewy creaminess and it is just so smooth and silky soft. Ends with a fairly intense bitterness but nothing burning or acrid.

Juicy and flavorful fruity hops that weave in and out with tons of citrus, tropical and stone fruit notes with a solid sweetness throughout. A hint of pine seems to come and go but in the end this one brings the fruit that everyone loves.

One of best treehouse beers I’ve ever had. Head and shoulders above sap(regular). Very well done

Canned 11/15/18; drank on 11/21/18; I love Chinook hops and I love this beer; have had Sap many times but my first time with the amped up version; much more pronounced hop aroma and flavor, highly recommend

Just more Tree House magic! It's divine! It would be a PERFECT New England IPA but I'm going to say it's just a tad bit too sweet. But I'm picking nits - it's incredible. Get some!

From a 16oz can, dated 11/15/18. Served in a tulip.

Pours a hazy-cloudy cheerful pineapple juice-colour with a finger or so of head. Retention is just so-so but leaves a fat, creamy collar and a sheet of thin lacing.

Medium intensity nose of some underripe, tart tropical fruit or the other, sharp yeastiness, and something vaguely earthy-funky and woodsy. The various aromas are so well integrated that it's hard to tease them apart. I don't usually spend this much time smelling my beer but it's a puzzle.

Taste is sharp, tart, zesty, and only mildly bitter. Fruit notes up front, underripe pineapple, kiwi, orange juice and grapefruit rind, and lime, with bread dough, pine bark and sweet spice following apace. Tart, zesty, oily afterbite lingers. Tastes boozier than 7%.

Feel is smooth, soft and creamy, doughy, medium bodied with bright, prickly carbonation.

Overall, good stuff, maybe just a marginal improvement over the recent batches of Sap-with-only-one-S, just enough to justify killing all those extra hops.

16 oz pour, 11/15/18

Classic TH NEIPA pour

Fruited up, tropical sniff...yum

Super soft on the palate, with oranges and ripe pineapple coming to mind, also a mild tea note...mighty fine creation...well worth seeking out
