Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

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.

A: Pale gold with splashes of orange. Hazy, but not in the opaque beermilk vein of its NEIPA brethren. Fluffy head bordering on the composition of cappuccino foam--just off-white in color, dissipating without ever quite disappearing.

S: Lemon sorbet and apricot marmalade. Lotsa mango--more of the sweet yellow variety vs. the underripe green type that is featured in OG Sap. Bubblegum and pizza dough malt.

T: Sweet grapefruit flesh without the rind. Strong doughy malt presence--so light it borders on vanilla cake. Light pineapple, maybe hints of cantaloupe and orange. Finishes with a punch of stone fruit, more apricot than peach, not quite ripe. Piney undertones throughout manifest more prominently on aftertaste.

M: Wonderfully full and well carbonated. Mouth coating in that signature Tree House fashion. Rounded in its bitterness, restrained in its sweetness. Sticky with a touch of a cooling menthol sensation (perhaps illusory from the pine flavor).

O: An amplified version of Sap that, to me, showcases the depth of the hop profile more than the base. This is intensely aromatic and flavorful, with an intensity that punches way above its ABV despite retaining the balance and effortless drinkability of Sap.

Underrated beer. Bright yellow with good bit of lacy foam upon poor. Pine, sap, citrus aroma. The 'west coast' flavors are balanced perfectly with citrus juiciness. Neither one overwhelms the other, but the pine and sap becomes more pronounced as the beer warms slightly. Good amount of carbonation. Only 'knock' and it's not even a knock is that it is 'medium' mouthfeel (along the lines of In Perpetuity) and not quite some of Tree House's very best beers.

Overall, I will say it again: underrated.

Pours hazy bright yellow orange in color. Taste is grapefruit, orange rind, and light pine. Mefium bodied, super bitter, medium carbonation. Most bitter Treehouse brew. Good but I prefer Super Sap and regular Sap.

Hazy golden color. Aroma is quite tame with some fruity and slightly floral notes. Taste is quite leafy and grassy, a bit astringent. Dry, medium carbonation.
