Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Bright w/Galaxy is a clean and elegant showcase for our favorite southern hemisphere hop - GALAXY! Galaxy is an extraordinarily unique and distinctive hop, and presented here it offers flavors of ripe pineapple, lemon-lime, and orange sorbet. A light body and fluffy mouthfeel make this beer such a pleasure to drink. We love the Bright series for its individualism as it allows the pure character of the hop to shine, foregoing the hop compound biotransformation that contributes depth, complexity, and originality to our core Tree House IPA’s. With this beer you get pure Galaxy candy, and what a sweet treat it is!

Canned 8/3/18
Golden murky haze pot with a glorious two fingers of headCurtains of long lasting lacing. Outstanding look.
Smells like sour pineapple, lemon, definitely pine.
Taste brings in the orange, a bit of yuzu, pineapple. Lots to unpack.
More bitter initially than the Mosaic Bright, medium mouthfeel, dry finish.
Interesting journey, another stellar DIPA.

Fresh can poured into a fluted snifter.

Hazy, rusty straw color. Bubbly head, settles and rings the glass with foam.

Aroma is fruity and citrus zest. Smells tropical, fruit punch, sweet.

Flavor had fruity melon, sweet citrus juice and a bit of zesty lemon.

Soft, lighter than moderate carbonation and medium body.

Bright seems to be tasting more like the other TH brews to me. I used to feel that it stood out from their pack a bit more than this iteration did.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA

Served in a Tree House teku

Fantastic appearance. The beer poured a hazy straw yellow and was capped by a tight, fluffy, finger-tall, bright white crown that dropped to a thin, bubbly film. Definitely not “bright” like some of the other beers in this series but fine by me. Rings of drippy lacing coated the glass from top top to bottom.

The aroma was outstanding. Really fruity and juicy with a big melon-like presence. Honeydew melon perhaps. Loads of fragrant peach notes as well. There was a nice honey-like presence too. Moderately sweet. A fairly strong, white wine-like quality appeared as the beer warmed and later intensified. Touch of dankness too.

The flavor profile was similar to the nose and nearly as impressive. Really juicy and fruity. Honeydew melon was apparent. Strong peach notes too. Big citrus presence in the center. Tangerine and grapefruit specifically. White wine notes appeared on the back end and carried into the finish. Touch of lemon as well. Some white grapefruit and a touch of pithy, rind-like bitterness lingered after the swallow.

Terrific signature Tree House mouthfeel. Super soft and fluffy. Thinner bodied for the style. A super fine, moderate effervescence gave the liquid a fantastic, tongue blanketing suppleness.

Tree House’s Bright series beers are all impressive, but this Galaxy hopped variation was definitely my favorite one to date. This double IPA contains the typical fruity and juicy hop notes, along with an interesting winey hop quality. I would love to get my hands on this again at some point.

Hazy gold, white head, nice distribution of spots of lacing. Pineapple, grapefruit, mango, pith and pine aromas. Tastes nice and sweet with a ton of mango, pineapple, some grapefruit and pine. Fantastic beer.
