By applying years of focused brewing execution, we are able to craft Hurricane - a beer that is neither abrasive nor harsh, and features tirelessly refined characteristics. We are welcoming this beer to the family as a proud example representing who we are as a brewery.

Notes via stream of consciousness: Hurricane is a double IPA at 7.7% ABV. It's poured a cloudy orange body beneath a full head of slightly off-white foam. The aroma suggests orange, papaya, melon, and light pine. The flavor delivers those same notes within a sweetish and bready malt base. It's a little like orange marmalade but there's more to it... I'm getting some peach, pine, lychee, a bit of hop resin, and subtle lime. It moderately bitter, and there's only a little bit of acidic "hop bite" yet it finishes dry with a little bit of pine and resin lingering. In the mouth it's medium-light in body and gently crisp with a very fine-bubbled, seemingly natural carbonation that lends a light cares to the palate.

From a 16oz can dated 4/20/22. Seemed subdued on the nose and palate, with a slightly astringent finish. A solid IPA, to be sure, but not as appealing to me as other recent Tree House NEIPAs I’ve tasted.

The soft orange color with nice carbonation belies the huge hop smash from the first taste. The beer becomes a complex mixture of melon, mango & papaya. The finish is very dry with a nice sweetness.

Pours a hazy golden straw. The nose has notes of tropical fruit. The flavor follows the nose with a very mildly bitter finish. The body is light even for the style.

This is a fine offering for any other brewer but it ranks as a sub-par offering for TH.

Canned 11 days ago. One of the more bitter offerings I've had from Tree House to date -- this one comes across as in the same vein as the Sap series. Same soft mouthfeel that is characteristic of the brewery

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Citrusy and earthy hops up front along with some lighter tropical and floral notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of citrusy and earthy hop notes, with a bit of a spicy hop undertone. Some floral and tropical notes poke through as well. Low bitterness. Finishes with lingering earthy notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very solid IPA that is on the easier side to drink. A great mix of hop character throughout. Worth checking out

Poured from a 16oz can into a pub glass.

Look is a very pale hazy yellow with a thin white head.

Aroma is astringent tropical hops.

Taste is a great balance of bitter and fruity sweet.

Canned on 7/28/20

Pours a softly glowing golden orange body topped with multiple fingers of fluffy, rocky, white head; great retention leaves just shy of a finger of craggy cap, an expansive, frothy collar, and dense rings of soapy lacing lining the glass.

Aroma begins with a steady, earthy tropical build, opening up with creamy papaya, melon, and spiced peach expanding over the profile; underlying tones of lush bubblegum and zesty strawberry add further detail before a grassy middle leads into overripe guava and melon rinds fading with a semi-sweet, earthy hop finish.

Taste shows zesty melon meeting fresh pineapple and accented with overripe guava upfront; notes of melon rinds on the mid-palate fade to a subtle, creamy lime and fresh-cut grass finish as extensive, semi-crisp, bready malt lingers.

Mouthfeel brings a medium, mildly resinous body accompanied by a carbonation slightly above moderate for a deft and delicately crisp introduction to the palate; a semi-creamy rounding of the mid-palate dries fairly quickly to a spritzy hop prickle easing into the finish as a mild-moderate bitterness lingers comfortably.

A soft, effortless NEIPA, with juicy, semi-dank hops brought to equilibrium with an unabashed yet astoundingly plush bitterness, all tied together via the signature pillowy Tree House feel; a casual, understated stunner of masterfully executed haze.

L - Creamy light orange/yellow with a lot of haze and a frothy white head that settles and leaves a cap leaving behind lacing.
S - Fresh, sweet oranges, pineapple, mango, melon with some piney hops
T - Follows the nose: sweet orange and tropical fruit notes up front and throughout (pineapple, mango, melon, citrus), along with piney, grassy hops
F - Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Perfect balance between creamy and light to provide a soft, yet crisp mouthfeel.
O - A really great example of the NEIPA style - pretty much perfectly dialed in.
