Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The art and science of brewing continues to captivate us - every opportunity to experiment in search of how to improve our beer, and to further our understanding of what ultimately makes a beer enjoyable, enriches our spirit! Curiosity Forty Eight is revival of the Curiosity Thirty Two recipe with a number of refinements to the base beer and a hop dosing rate that is vastly increased in both the kettle and the dry hop. The result is a beer that is dripping with fruity hop saturation akin to some of our favorite big Tree House double IPA’s. We taste ripe citrus, overripe mango, peach, and pineapple. A tight carbonation seems to disappear on the tongue enticing your palate for the next sip. A frothy head and bright orange color contribute to the tremendous appeal of this beer.

L - now that is some straight mango juice. Goddamn that glows beautifully in the evening sun. Creamy, oily head.

S - ripe peach, pineapple, and mango. Doughy and crackery. Incendiary scallion and pungent dank.

T - pithy, oniony grapefruit peel and a waterfall of orange juice. Bubblegum and grape notes. Garlic? Moist yet drying acidity on the finish.

F - like swallowing a velvet pillowcase whole, pillow and all. So gentle and delicate in how soft and supple it feels.

O - this is a potent beer. Amped up juiciness along with cranked dank. I know every Tree House brew is described as "pillowy", but as someone who drinks an unhealthy amount of Tree House, this is deffo pillowy. Amazing that such sharp, zesty flavors can be packed into such a gentle package. The draft-only Curiosities continue to impress, frustratingly enough.
