Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Curiosity Forty Five utilizes a simple malt bill and some of our favorite hop varieties as the base for a number of process innovations that lend to a beer that has a uniquely velvety texture and rich hop saturation. It is heavy with citrus character, with threads of papaya, guava, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and stone fruit. The finish is quite soft and features a texture unique to Tree House. It’s a beer that makes us yearn for warmer weather and the feeling of a late afternoon sunset.

Had on tap. First Curiosity beer for me despite several Tree House trips. Pours hazy orange yellow in color with half inch head. Taste is citrus, starfruit, peach, melon, and bubblegum. Light bodied, slightly bitter and moderate carbonation. Amazing. Would get this if it were a regular offering. Has a Tree House taste but tastes different. A real treat.

Shared with JLindros. You're the man Dean.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice super hazy golden orange hue with a one finger white head that fades to leave thin wisps and a creamy halo.

S - Aromas of big big sweet oranges, super musty dank earthy notes. As it warms the Valencia orange juice comes out even more.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with huge bright orange notes, almost bubblegum like flavours, faint generic tropical flavours, more of the musty hops. Not really dank, but lots of bitter rinds.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, fluffy medium bodied.

O - Overall this was a very solid beer from Tree House. Really good flavour but the finish is really really bitter.

Serving Type: growler

Growler, big thanks to rudzud
Huge creamy fluffy 1 finger head fades slowly, fades at med pace, nice soapy thick lacing, murky solid darker orange color

Nose loads of orange and clementine, valencia orange, juicy clementine with rind, some pith, not really orange cream, a bit of dank musty, earthy like, mossy, little chalky mineral, a bit of wheaty slight creamy flaked malt.

Taste brings loads of citrus and orange, Valencia orange and Clementine, a little rind, into more flaked malt, a little creamy but not really juicy creamy NEIPA like, mild tropical notes, lots of pith/rind into spicy but mild earthy dank musty, fair bitterness turning to spicy chewy bitter rind, chalky mineral malt, flaked creamy like, an almost astringent finish with lots of rind and pith lingering, lingering citrus and orange rind, a little chalky flaked wheat malt, almost menthol like oily citrus hop thing

Mouth is med bod, just a touch creamy, nice carb for a growler

Overall mixed, it has lots of citrus, very juicy and enjoyable, only the super bitter astringent rind pith oily menthol finish thing that kinda ruins it a bit.
