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.

Pours a hazy light straw color with a finger of head. The nose has both dank and piney notes. The upfront flavor is dominated by citrusy notes while the finish has a modest bitterness that is reserved but still manages to impress.

This is the correct way to showcase simcoe. Im often put off by simcoe but in this beer it is perfect. Piney, dank and bitter sitting in there and tamed or rounded out by the citra, with none off the notes of simcoe that ive disliked in the past. The element of bitter is something thAt elevated this above Julius and other treehouse beers for me.

I like seeing reviews in the most recently reviewed section which reminds me to review said beers that I have yet to get around to. Brought 2 cans of this home from the source, drank on the river in November 2019.

Pours a light orange like color with 4/5" white head and damn good retention for a very hoppy beer. Speaking of very hoppy, I didn't find that Simcoe was in sync with the commercial tug job, wasn't getting tropical notes out of this. Still smelled good more evocative of Citra tangerine, orange and kumquat.

Flavor pushes all things citrus. Grapefruit rind, orange, tangerine, lime. Mouth feel of delicate flaked oats/wheat I imagine, great at covering notes of alcohol and bitterness. Hard to believe Simcoe is restrained and tamed so well here. Comes across as more of a green than juicy thing. Lower carbonation works here and yet creates a big bountiful well retained head, best of both worlds. Sawft in a good way. Rarely do you get this deft touch with something with "Super" in the name, but once again Tree House pulls it off.

Pours cloudy gold orange color with a 2 finger thick head that faded slowly and left good foamy lacing. Smells of melon, grapefruit, lime, lemon zest, orange peel, pine cone, light peppery spices, tea leaf, floral notes and biscuit. Not as dank smelling as most TH brews, but it smells dry hopped and full of floral accents.

Flavor mimics the nose with grapefruit, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, tangerine, pine cone, peppery spices, tea leaf, coriander, floral notes, caramel, toasted grains and biscuit. It’s very well balanced and quite smooth, with mild carbonation and a low bitterness. Another fine DIPA from these guys.

Poured from a can dated 2/24/21
Solid 1 inch fluffy white head on a thick golden yellow body. Head dissipates to a thin cap, medium lacing.
Aroma of tropical fruit, some citrus and a hint of pine
Taste is tropical and citrus rind, also kind of a cream cycle note not sweet though
Mouthfeel is chewy, pretty creamy with a little bit of orange soda fizz finishes dry
Overall its easy drinking, nice layers of flavor as you go through the glass, clean tasting.

Canned 2/24/21. “Steve's terrible can stamp” stamped on the bottom

We're back with more Tree House! Shot up there yesterday with my friend Brooks to grab a few cases and I came back with quite a few new to me beers as I tend to do there. I absolutely loved Perfect Storm, the extra hopped version of this, damn near my favorite TH beer. I'm hoping this one will be just as good! This one is currently sitting at #372 of all time on BA

Pours a hazy pale yellow gold with 3 fingers of soapy white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves nice lacing

This carries a lot of tropical sweetness in the nose, and quite similar to Perfect Storm but different enough to keep it interesting. I'm picking up on aromas of juicy peach, papaya, strawberry, creamsicle orange, a hint of spicy earthy hops, and lightly sweet bready malt

So compared to Perfect Storm this does not taste quite as good, but I'm viewing it as a standalone beer, and for that it is quite good. On the front end I'm tasting creamy peach, orange sherbet, a touch of grapefruit, overripe melon, and bready malt. The swallow is more hop focused than the fruit-forward front end, brining notes of pithy grapefruit, earthy hops, white pepper, cantaloupe, and a malt character that's somewhere between creamy and dry

A medium body pairs with very mild carbonation, resulting in a silky beer with a thick consistency. Finishes mostly dry with a nice bitterness to offset the initial sweetness

Overall this was another great NEIPA from Tree House, though it did not blow my mind. Oh well, that was just me not controlling my expectations

Can from Jeff, thanks again. Hazy faint gold in color with a good sized frothy white head that persists. Resinous citrus earthy orange and apricot with a bit of light sweet bread to back it up. Beers like this remind me that juice bomb beers are boring, well done Treehouse

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves decent lacing

S: A mix of tropical fruit, citrus, and light pine. Lots of orange and passion fruit

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of citrus and tropical fruit. Brings in some more noticeable orange cream and passion fruit. Finishes with lingering citrus

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. On the softer side

O: Another super solid DIPA that blends the simcoe and citra hops beautifully. Very easy to drink. Definitely worth checking out

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

L: A brilliant Sunny-D orange juice appearence but for the half inch of white foam topping this brew. The head settles to a ring and cap relatively quickly and leaves some broken bands of lace on the glass.

S: Peppery, spicey, and soapy are the first hits to the olfactory, followed by papaya over passionfruit, though there is some of that in there too. More mineral and astringent spirits round it all out.

T: The bitter astringency cuts to the back of my tongue along with a far more prominent green herbal punch, a little citrus behind, and then to a lesser extent it follows the nose.

F: It lacks the alcohol heat but has a very dry boozy mouthfeel - like drinking gin. The smoothness is also a bit soapy.

O: This is a fine beer but a tad overrated in my view and far from Tree House's best offers.

A pretty good NEIPA, but Tree House sets such a high bar that pretty good can sometimes be a disappointment. 6/16/20 canning date. Hazy pale gold/almost straw yellow colored. Light head and lacing. Smell is more dank and grassy than citrusy, but there is a lemon presence. Taste is bitter and dank on the forefront while citrus is merely the ever present background. Medium bodied, dry finish, good booze presence. A welcome departure from NEIPAs that try to be a glass of fruit juice.

Sweet tropical hoppy, slightly malty, and orange/tangerine citrus nose on this one! Taste follows with a soft and juicy orange/grapefruit citrus bitter finish. This is very well-balanced and quality done. This is really good!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. Canned on 6/18/20.

Appearance: light yellow hue with tons of haze and a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. It looks darn good.

Smell: sweet, creamy orange aroma, definitely of the sherbet variety. There's also some nice mango-ey tropical aromas in there as well; it's a nice mix, and very enticing.

Taste: a little less fruity-juicy than the aroma suggests; the flavor is subtler, more green, perhaps even a little more herbal than the aroma. That said, there's still a tropical note, and the subtlety reads as sophistication to me. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this is a tasty beer, nicely smooth, with an interesting flavor profile. Perhaps it's not blowing me away with juiciness, but it is still a rock-solid beer.

16oz from Dope canned 6/16, poured into a HotD tulip.

A: Really beautiful, soft, glowing lemonade/fruit juice, impressive white head and lacing.

S: Full-on tropical, mango and papaya and lighter impressions of grapefruit and pineapple, fresh hop greenness, citrus, orange. Flashes of supple sweetness within the hop brilliance.

T: More of the same, an all-out tropical palate, big mango and papaya, fleshy citrus pith, ripe peach, some underlying Simcoe dankness, soft fluffy Citrusy/fruity sweetness...just really nice overall.

MF: Creamy, smooth, clean and crisp, medium bodied, fluffy and soft.

O: Really good, familiar to other Tree House offerings. So consistent and drinkable.

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.
