Super TyphoonSuper Typhoon
Notes: Super Typhoon is a rendition of Hurricane that features amplified additions of Simcoe and Citra in both the kettle and the dry hop. Additionally, process modifications make for a fuller bodied base beer capable of absorbing the additional hop charges without becoming abrasive or astringent. The result is perhaps our favorite amalgamation of hops in our short history. We taste heavy notes of tropical fruit and passion fruit from the Simcoe blending seamlessly with orange sherbet notes from the Citra. An airy mouthfeel and a creamy body makes for a beer that never becomes burdensome to drink, and gets better as you move through the glass. We are excited to share it with you.

Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a thick foamy head that slowly disappeared. Smell is juicy citrus, orange creamsicle, maybe some fresh cucumbers. Upon sipping, flavors just exploded into my mouth. Very juicy and sweet with assertive hops yet minus the bitterness. Tasted oranges, tangerines, little grapefruit. Slightly grassy as well. The mouthfeel is super smooth and creamy, no hop burn. This is definitely one of my top TH beers. For a double IPA, this is a very well rounded, balanced and almost too easy to drink in minutes.

Personally I found this one too sharply hoppy for my taste. Definitely had lots of juicy punch, but ended up too bitter for me to enjoy to the max. Still a really nice DIPA, but wasn't my favorite from Tree House.

Very nice NE style IPA from the amazing Tree House. Bought this can straight from the brewery. 2/26/20 date printed on can. Pours a hazy slightly darker yellow-orange color with some fluffy white head and small sheets of lingering lacing. Smells of nice ripe papaya, grapefruit, melon, mango, orange and pineapple. Also some malt, creamy vanilla, bread and weaker floral hops. Taste follows the nose, great balance and juiciness, didn't want to slow down in drinking it even though it had a higher ABV. Smooth, soft, sticky mouthfeel with great carbonation. Very tasty!

Canned 3 weeks ago.

L -- Hazy golden orange body with two fingers of dense white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and great lacing
S -- Fresh pine, honeydew melon, diesely fusels, new sneaker, red grapefruit. Kinda Hill Farmstead-y
T -- Red grapefruit rind, zippy pine, orange zest, earth. Has a nice hoppy bite to it that you don't usually get in TH beers
F -- Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Not particularly fluffy and a hair on the watery side
O -- Simcoe is a pretty cool hop and I'm glad that it gets a chance to shine here

A- 16oz can pours into a tall chalice with a super hazy pale banana golden orange body and a two finger fluffy crown. The cap has good retention. Lacing forms on the glass with small sheets and spots.

S- Simcoe and Citra provide bold citrus, tropical, stone fruit, floral and resinous hop notes and also a touch of fresh raw hop pellets. Mango, creamsicle, oranges, grapefruit, berries, tangerine, strawberry, dankness and orange sorbet. Bright hops all the way trumping minimal pale grain hints.

T- The first few sips feel a bit muddled but surprisingly things balance out here more than the aroma when the sweeter, juicier hop flavors combine with the sweetness and everything shines. Nectar of papaya, bubble gum, peach and mango lead into bitter grapefruit, orange creamsicle, orange sorbet, dank herbs, bitter floral hints, mint, cantaloupe and melon. Whole grains, bread, cracker and moderately high sweetness.

MF- Creamy and super silky medium bodied brew. Smooth and it really puffs up on the taste bud with any agitation. The carbonation level is high but the beer's texture pads it down and removes any sharpness from the bubbles. Herbal dank bitterness in the finish.

A somewhat muddled aroma leads into a very juicy and truly awesome flavor on the taste buds. Juicy melon, papaya and mango with citrus, floral and dank hops. Goes down fast.

Canned 09/06/19 “not a thing to do but talk to you”
Hard to find words but I’ll try. TH beers just keep getting more incredible as I actually make an effort to seek them out. This goes above and beyond almost anything I’ve had from them. Up there with Doubleganger as one of my favorites. Everything you want in a NEDIPA! So smooth, so clean, so drinkable, so aromatic, so massively flavorful. Bonkers.

Review #1,000! (As of September 2019) Way too much beer and money, but it’s been fun.

16oz can, Tree House snifter glass. Pours a cloudy golden body, hazy with a one and half finger white head, good retention, plenty of lacing. Smell is mildly juicy citrus, a bit of tropical fruit, fair bit of floral resin but without too much of a herbal bite. Mildly sweet sugar and Tree House yeast esters. It's solid and in some ways, not all that distinctly different than some of the other hoppy beers coming out of that brewery. Flavour follows; mild tropical fruit, light floral resin, citrus and a bit of zest as well. Not particularly herbal, mildly estery. Medium bodied, creamy, soft carbonation as per usual from Tree House. Mildly zesty citrus and floral notes. Some grapefruit. Solid Tree House hop, doesn't really have a lot more to it than most other hops- although it seems a bit less distinct and less nuanced than the likes of Julius, Green and Alter Ego. But it's a nice tipple nonetheless.

16oz can, dated 07.31.2019, poured into a Tree House snifter glass.

The beer pours a very hazy orange color, somewhat turbid with a hearty finger of soapy white head that has moderate retention with nice sticky lacing gripping the glass. The aroma is pleasant, lots of citrus juice, tangy tropical fruits but with an assertively green and bitter backbone. Grapefruit peel, pine needles, dank grassiness, lots of raw hop leaf, resinous hop oil but there is that characteristic sweetness from the yeast. The flavors are good, especially as it warms, a nice balance between sweet and bitter, nice juiciness, tropical and bright but there is a lot of green and raw hoppiness here, citrus peel, oily, spicy, dank and grassy with a touch of floral character that brings out the sweet yeast and pale and doughy malt and unfortunately, a bit of booziness. The mouthfeel is good, coating and lively with a medium body that finishes easily yet dryly.

Verdict: A very good NEIPA from Tree House. It's got a nice balance between the sweeter and more tropical expressions and the more bitter and raw flavors. Brings out a lot of nuanced hop character that is quite enjoyable.

Can from the brewery in MA.
Pours a golden orange juice with fluffy white head that lingers and good lacing, smell jumps out the can with citrus candy, overripe peaches, cantaloupe, and resin flecked cotton candy, taste is surprisingly mild relative to the nose with sweet orange flesh and candied citrus peel, finished with citrus pith that lingers, feel is soft, prickly, and dry. An aromatic and citrusy treat.

Canned 6/28/19 - Exposed to all the elements, while inside all is clear. Served in my 'Don't Tread On Me' Rastal glass. Pours a hazy orange with a dense, two-inch, cream-colored head. As the head gradually, dissipates into a rocky, frothy cap, delicate bands of textured lacing are revealed around the edges of the glass. Nose expresses bright citrus notes, as well as tropical fruit. Taste reveals consistent with nose; however, less fruity than suggested by the aromas in the nose. Flavor profile reveals pith and earthy/herbal notes upfront, with the fruit character hidden in the background. Mouthfeel is light in body with an easy, even carbonation and just a kiss of astringency. Overall, very nice, but not my favorite hazy offering from these guys.

Pours a golden hue, white head. The aroma on this blows Hurricane's away. Some honey dew and pineapple. The flavor is intense. Loads of tropical fruit and melon. Not a lot of citrus at all. The finish is slightly bitter and sticky. It really coats the tongue. Compared to Hurricane, this is a lot more intense, but not in a good way. I did enjoy this though.

16oz can poured into a snifter.

A: Sunny yellow color with a good haze to it. White head holds tight at a thin cap. Rings of lacing.

S: Soft fruity notes of orange creamsicle and peaches and cream. Overripe mango. Little bit of freshly cut grass and just the faintest whiff of broken pine needles. Dough/confection malt base.

T: Follows the taste. Clean, fresh orange, peaches, star fruit, white grapefruit. Green and grassy flavors far underneath. Faint gritty/earthy hop flavor. Nougat and shortcake malt base. Cream and confectioners sugar. Bitterness is very mild. Fruit cup, grass, and faint pine on the finish.

M: Medium-full body. Lush and creamy. Pillowy, even. Very faint grip of astringency on the tooth enamel.

O: This is a gem. Best Tree House brew I’ve had in a while. Playful and tropical, and just too damn easy to drink. They struck a pretty perfect balance here, with a great hop blend and a body that balances it exactly.

16 oz can from egrandfield, batch canned 3/12/19 poured into White Elm willie beecher glass.

Deep pulpy hazy juicy acidic (any more adjectives?) blonde-orange body with a tall creamy cap of 2 fingers. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Aroma is just intense and joyful. Mango, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, white wine, watermelon, and grapefruit all combine with herb and grass to create an award-winning olfactory soundtrack.

Pine and pineapple open this up with hints of grass, followed by mango, apricot, peach, and slight passion fruit. Slight green apple and watermelon, and grapefruit finish this out.

Feel is acidic and juicy, not particularly creamy as the carbonation lifts it up too much to let it settle in cream land. The acidity and resins continue out through the finish.

Overall, a really enjoyable beer - but reading reviews it seems to be inconsistent. I know my first and only Hurricane (December '18, reviewed in March) was rather terrible in comparison, yet had raving reviews - yet this Super Typhoon definitely lives up to the hype. I think perhaps Hurricane and Super Typhoon are their least consistent brews, but dammit if you get a good batch, hang onto your seats and grab your raincoat.

Canned 4/16. Deep hazy orange, modest head but great lacing on the glass and suds on the surface. Strong citrus nose with tropical fruits, guava, passion fruit, grapefruit. Taste follows suit, a nice sweetness and hop bite to balance it out. Smooth finish, thicker body, booze is well hidden.

pours hazy, but not milky thick like so many of their beers. Kind see thru at the edges a little. Small white head (1 finger) that fades. Doesn't seem to have that classic TH yeasty head. A little disappointed.
Flavor is tropical but a little more piney and less smooth than what I'm used to with them. Maybe some Simcoe in there or something?
Good beer, but a let down for me considering the hype.

-the yellow-orange can pour holds a deep haze and a thin cap of very fine foam. The aroma is a bit candy-like and tropical. The flavor is of strawberries and pineapple. The mouthfeel is full and smooth. There is no alcohol heat. The bitterness is moderate to light. This is a highly enjoyable brew.

16 oz. can. Very pale hazy orange. Smells of garlic, a little onion, a little cat piss, and some citrus. A bit of sweet malts. Tastes of citrus, garlic, a little sweetness. Back end is chewy with a lingering garlic flavor. Medium heavy. Kind of a classic hop profile in a hazy IPA. Pretty good.

An extraordinarily refreshing DIPA. Cloudy grapefruit in the glass, waves of refreshing citrus. Classic complexity in the first sip, and then another generous flavor wave at the end of the glass. Brilliantly crafted!

Cloudy pale orange with a fat finger of off-white head. Sloppy sheets of lacing.

Spicy aroma with orange, white wine and cilantro.

Dully bitter tasting with prominent citrus pith; a small splash of orange juice and white wine; a little grass and a spicy, herbal finish.

Full bodied and lightly creamy with slow-building carbonation.

A very tasty, well-crafted, easy-drinking DIPA that’s not too sweet. Starts out pretty good and gets better with each sip.

Good Beer! Tree House makes solid stuff, and this is one of their best. Overall, I was a little disappointed by their beers on my second haul from them this weekend. Some of them were so yeasty (the bottom 1/8 of most of the other beers I got from TH were almost entirely yeast). That said, this one was one of the best IPAs I've had from them.

A - Poured into Spiegelau IPA Glass, nice hazy / cloudy / opaque look

S - I got a lot of mango and guava on the nose, a bit of hops but not as much as I had expected.

T - A bit sharper than I expected but overall a good drink. A lot of fruit up front that dissipates into an very slight bitter bubble aftertaste on the tongue.

M - Great mouthfeel like I said before a bit sharp towards the end but overall very enjoyable.

O - I'd been after this one for a while now. Every time I make the trip up to Tree House it never seems to be available. But a friend happen to be there when it was available and I was really excited to try it. I'm impressed with how well the fruit flavors have worked their way into the beer, but it left me a little bit to be desired. I guess I was expecting something a bit juicier.

Traded for this a while ago and finally got around to this on a snowy, quiet winter's night. Have not not had the Hurricane yet but if this is any indication of what that's about, I can say that that (and this) were a quality an enjoyable offering from Tree House.

This had a typical appearance to for a Tree House offering as the liquid was cloudy, muted, and orange with plenty of frothy head to top it off. Lots of webbed lacing could be found as I worked my way through my pint glass. The taste was full of body - citrus tang, tropical fruit rind, cereal grains, grass, and chalky hops filled this nose as this was quite dry and astringent. Loads of citrus tang, tropical fruit pith, and muted, tropical fruits in the nose as the taste was just as chalky, dry, and understated in the nose as well as the taste.

Not a lot of booze in this one as the underlying nectar of the mouthfeel came through more and more at the same time it was warming up. Liked the orange sherbet aftertaste that made this feel like a dessert beer more than anything else. Not the best from Tree House but this was a solid beer regardless and one that I was glad to review. Canned on 5/24 of last year, this held up well and has me wondering if the Hurricane will be just as enjoyable when I crack it open later this week. This was another solid beer from Tree House that certainly got better as I worked my way through it!
