look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy bright orange color with a half finger of white head. The head leaves a beautiful band of lacing as it settles into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit, orange, and honeydew melon with a hint of fresh mangoes.

The flavor is literal hop candy. Candied oranges and caramelized mangoes followed by freshly squeezed orange juice, grapefruit, and papaya. The yeast is very present, bringing that signature bubblegum note that makes Tree House so great.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Soft, creamy, blah blah. Standard fare for Tree House.

Overall another fantastic DIPA from Tree House. The flavor is so juicy and sweet and that strong bubblegum note really brings me back to the first time I ever had a Tree House beer.

The beer pours a murky hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head that sticks around for a bit. It has medium low carbonation. The beer smells of cantaloupe, bubblegum, orange, and strawberry. The Taste follows the nose with cantaloupe, bubblegum, orange, and strawberry. It’s very soft and juicy. A standout among the tree House line up.

pours a vibrant hazy orange, another great looking Tree House brew

smell is full of citrus and orange juice. very pungent

tons of mango flavor in this, great sweetness and lots of citrus fruity flavor. citra does shine through but some earthy woody simcoe hits me late.

very creamy for a dIPA and makes this very easy to drink. at 7.7% this on the lighter end of the dIPA spectrum which gives off a regular IPA vibe which is not a bad thing

easy drinker and tons of flavor.

A cool, rolled can pours out that typical tree house look: orange and hazy. Needs an aggressive pour to get a head on it. Flavor on this is pure ripe mango, and it is huge! Some raspberry and pineapple after the swallow. Very creamy mouthfeel, and the beer itself is so light and quaffable. Awesome!

Canned 05/04/18, ‘THE WINDS HAD SWEPT ME WILSON’S WAY’.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a frothy two finger head that leaves a good amount of lace clinging to the glass.

The nose on this is potent with ripe papaya and mango. The balance is subtle, but a nice earthiness brings up the rear and gives it just enough bite. This is an awesome aroma.

What I love about this beer is the contrasting balance between the nose and the flavors. The nose is clearly tropical, but the flavors bring out something different. More Simcoe forward, earthy and grassy qualities become much more apparent, along with a noticeable malt bill and a subtle finishing touch of citrus peel. All that ripe tropical fruit from the nose is simple to balance a much more “organic” flavor profile. Very good.

The body has decent weight, very smooth with a medium carb level. Smooth and creamy, yet still refreshing on a hot day (like today).

16oz can into a Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Nose is citrus, clementine and sweet mango. Only moderately aromatic. Beer opens clementine, pear and sweet peach. Big tropical fruit flavors abound with a certain creaminess in the back. More of the same in the middle with a touch of cane sugar to further enhance the malt profile. Some mango and orange at the finish. Really tasty. Body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. Super smooth and caressing on the palate and soft and drinkable going down. Dry, lingering aftertaste that keeps you coming back for more. When doing IPAs, no one does the body like Tree House.

It's an IPA from Tree House so you know it's gonna be good. Nothing really sets this one apart though. Almost Julius-lite in my opinion... though the feel is out-of-this-world.

Props to our local beeroisseur Karen for the trade. Prost!

Pours an opaque soft gold color with a 3 finger frothy biscuit head that retains well and sticks to the edges long after the foam recedes. Gotta say the color is some of the most appealing I've seen in a NEIPA.

The aroma is pungent with stone fruit notes and a light citrus sweetness. Very nice.

The flavor has very pleasant, lightly sweet with orange, papaya and apricot notes. A light alcohol burn kicks in early on but never really takes over - a nice touch IMO as someone who does not like the burn. Malt feels light.

Feel is very soft and creamy with a low bitterness that lingers mostly in the finish.

This is a well balanced hop profile that goes down very easy. Of course the expectation is that TH puts out quality product and this certainly meets those expectations.
