BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 into a 13 oz Funk Brewing Teku Glass canned on 9/21/18. Pours like a glass of OJ with a big fluffy 2 plus finger head that leaves beautiful marks of lace with excellent retention. 5

Smell guava, papaya, pineapple, tangerine, and some grapefruit rind. Paradise! 5

Taste follows makes you want to go to an Island and never ever come back, guava, papaya, tangerine, pineapple, and the most perfectly balanced bitterness that may have ever touched these lips. Insanely Juicy! 5

Mouthfeel a big medium, soft on the palate with perfect carbonation, not dry but sticky from the boat loads of hops in this gem, and at 7.7% I am trying to slow myself, but holy lord it is off the charts. 5

Overall I am not kidding when I say this may be the most amazing NEDIPA I have ever had and I have had most of the greats. Nobody is worthy of this juice, but I will try and be better and the guy that gave me this can, I don’t feel I could ever give him something that can match it. 5

Man, what an unexpected add to New Odds & Sods Beer Sunday (Week 711)! I was contacted by a user on another beer site through Facebook Messenger (!) to see if I would be interested in sending some rather pedestrian CANs in return for my choice(s) of a buncha Tree House CANs! 8=O I replied in the affirmative but I said that I would happily just send him the ones that he wanted, gratis. He then insisted that I pick some of his stash & it was an offer that I CANnot refuse as the founder of The CANQuest (tm)! I didn't want any of their vaunted NEIPAs nor was I taken with a lot of what he had listed, but I hit upon a Milk/Sweet Stout & this one, both styles that I usually enjoy. Thank you, sir, but this seems like overkill.

From the CAN: ""Keep Cold * Drink Fresh"; "We are excited that you are holding a delicious Double IPA from Tree House Brewing Company - Super Typhoon! Super Typhoon the big brother to Hurricane, featuring amplified kettle and dry hop doses Citra and Simcoe hops and adjustments to the base beer to make it even richer with flavor. It explodes on the palate with juicy tropical flavors and finishes crisp and clean. It is everything that we love about Hurricane with an extra layer of hop intensity and saturation. Please enjoy it fresh and in the company of those you love."

I Crack!ed open the vent, but as soon as I beCAN my slow Glug, I realized that any hopes that I may have had for clarity were out the window, so I simply CANtinued with a C-Line Glug that really brought forth some foamy head. It finally settled into a three-plus (!) finger cap of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with good retention that left a load of great lacing as it slowly fell. Color was a downright murky Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5) with more turbidity than the local rivers following this past summer's heavy rainfall amounts. Nose was no lie on their part with notes of "tropical fruit and passion fruit … with orange sherbet" easily picked up along with naughty Simcoe the Kitty having done her business in the corner. 8=( Mouthfeel was full and super creamy. The taste was very fruity and almost sweet, meaning that it was probably on the low end of the spectrum for IBUs in this style. It left me feeling kind of unfulfilled as a result. The other thing that bothered me was the way it had a powderiness in the mouth and on the tongue, as though it had been saturated with lupulin powder & because it was unfiltered, this was a result. Finish was semi-dry, but it was more from the alcohol than the hops. I did not find it to be "Outstanding", but YMMV. Sorry.

Poured on draft at the brewery.

Pours a hazy light orange color with 2 fingers of creamy white head. The head leaves a modest amount of lacing before settling into a film.

The aroma is very muted, but there are subtle notes of guava and grapefruit, as well as some tangerines.

The flavor is also rather muted, bringing notes of grapefruit, melon, and subtle orange. Good, but maddeningly underwhelming.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth and pillowy soft with a dry finish.

Overall, a pretty good beer but one that is simply uninteresting and highly muted. The flavors and aromas are more representative of a pale ale than a double IPA, and they certainly don't live up to the greatness that is Hurricane. Not sure how this is an "amplified" version. That said, it isn't bad. Just weak by Tree House standards.

TREE HOUSE SUPER TYPHOON IPA 10/2/18

Bought at the brewery recently.

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip pint

a; Cloudy orange/yellow with an inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Moderate citrus and pine resin, leaning to orange pith.

t; Follows the nose with moderate bitterness and a dry finish where some bitterness lingers.

m; Heavier side of medium, very good body and some carbonation tingle.

o; A fine TH entry, surprisingly perhaps a bit more muted than anticipated for an Imperial aka a hopped-up Hurricane, but does drink very well and the taste has a full measure of the signature TH quality. Made for a good accompaniment to our homemade Mexican dinner, but also a great after dinner sipper.

a: hazy, bright matte orange color with a hint of amber. frothy 2 finger off-white head. super-thick looking

s: guava, passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit, and orange zest. super juicy right away to the point where it makes your mouth water. crackers, mango, and that creamy NE-style sweetness behind that. nice malt in the backbone as eel

t: huge, juicy hit of guava and grapefruit right away. a nice earthy hop presence behind that with a smooth crackery flavor. mango and dragon fruit behind that. a little bit of malty sweetness, but not too much

m: medium mouthfeel with low carbonation, per the style

o: i think hands down this is the juiciest DIPA I've ever drank. it's not too sweet, and strikes a nice balance of the sweetness that's in a DIPA, and the juicy hops. real good stuff

Look: Deep orange and murky, with a good size white foam head. Lacing for days,
like most Treehouse beers.

Smell: Tangerine, Citrus and melon with a subtle simcoe hop backbone.

Taste: Tropical fruit taste with tangerine and melon notes. Good amount of hop bite in there too for good measure.

Feel: Good medium bodied feel. Doesn't have the perfect mouth-feel of my favorite TH beers, but it's close. Does have a great dry finish.

Overall: Super solid beer right here. Probably right in the middle for the TH beers I have tried, but that means it's miles ahead of most out there IMO.

Canned 4 days ago.
Another Treehouse beer with a deep peachy color Haze.
Big foamy head that lasts.
Very drinkable. Citrus smell and taste. Great hop flavor.
The slight bitterness in the aftertaste is actually enjoyable layered over the tingly carbonation.
Treehouse beer is delicious, but the many, many varieties all taste almost identical.

Pours hazy, faint gold in color, with half inch head. Taste is big tangerine, passion fruit, and mango lassi. Medium bodied, sweet, moderate carbonation. Wow is this a great beer. I like Tornado and Hurricane and this is so much smoother and creamier. Body is amazing. May have to plan my Tree House trips around when this gets released.
