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!

A- Tallboy into a narrow becher with a hazy, kinda cloudy pale golden body and a three finger foamy-creamy white head. The cap shoots up fast but falls slowly with great retention. Thick webs of lacing off the glass a few mm and the pillow stays around throughout the entire experience.

S- The well-known Tree House hop bonanza bursts out of the glass with a mix of juicy tropical fruits prominent. Bubble gum, mango, guava, mandirin, dank weed, papaya; just a melange of the softer tropical fruits. Slight floral and citrus accents like the mentioned orange sorbet.

T- Again the hops are massive and it cannot be understated how much Tree House captures in their beers from the hops, still more than just about anyone else in the business. Soft fruits like mango, mandirin, peach, papaya, very juicy bubble gum, orange sorbet popsicles on swole, melon, dank weed, apricot and floral notes. Warmth brings a nice bitterness that really adds some good contrast to the softer fruits.

MF- Creamy and puffy medium body with a high level of carbonation. Ends bittersweet with hop flavors lingering all night long.

One of the better Tree House beers new-to-me that I have had in quite a while. The classic Tree House massive hop flavor profile with tons of juicy tropical fruits.

16 oz. can. The first 75% of the can pours hazy orange and then the last 25% pours like I just added orange sherbet to my glass. Smells of tropical fruit, sweet citrus, mango. Tastes of mango all over. Light citrus pith at the fringes. Sweet juicy backdrop. The pith flavor is the only source of bitterness. Thick and creamy texture. This is delicious and I am fully aware that in most other circumstances I would find a beer like this to be undrinkable.

Another juice bomb with all of the classic treehouse flavor. Had a 12 pack of this version and down to my last couple. Cheers!

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.
