BBBrighttt - CitraBBBrighttt - Citra
Notes: BBBrighttt w/ Citra was created to be an intense yet elegant showcase for one of our favorite hops - CITRA! It builds upon the base beer resulting in an amplified flavor profile as a function of additional kettle and dry hopping from the base recipe. It is an intense and fruity concoction that tastes much like fresh squeezed orange juice. We find it to be tremendously drinkable in spite of its stature, and we believe it is the perfect beer for those in search of intense flavor and supreme refreshment. It's everything a Double IPA should be! Enjoy!

A really nice DIPA, especially if you prefer a lighter bodied variety. Nice appearance, more yellow than orange and hazy. Head vanished pretty quickly. Got a nice hit of grapefruit in the smell, with lots of other fruit flavors as well. Quite sweet, but with some nice hoppiness too. This beer went down very smooth, but I would say was less creamy and rich than some other Tree House DIPAs. Still an excellent beer overall, especially for a warmer day!

Canned 2/26 Poured 3/10 into a stemless teku. Came out the gate a little zesty, not as much citra as one to be expected but after a few minutes of warming up the bouquet of citrus and tropical fruit came alive. Had the feel of a milkshake up a without the lactose. Very creamy and smooth. Even with its very balanced citra bill, I may even like to see it have even more. Soft beer that can get a lot of mileage of drinkability in spring and summer.

Poured from a 16oz can dated 2/26/20 into a Treehouse Luigi glass.

Overall an outstanding NEIPA. Looks like a glass of slightly carbonated orange juice. A little more “calm” than the average hazy produced by Treehouse. Poured a finger and a half of bright white head, very fluffy. Reduced to nothing shortly leaving behind little lacing. More lacing to trail as it warmed. Nose is full of tropical fruits and maybe a slight peachy scent. Taste is great. Citra on full display, although I did dock some points because it was a bit more bitter than I’m used to for the style. Typical Treehouse mouthfeel, creamy carbonation. Overall, a very good beer showcasing the Citra hop!

16 oz can, about 3.5 weeks old. Has the typical gorgeous hazy orangeish Tree House NEIPA look. This has the expected citrus & tropical fruit aromas and flavors but also has more alcohol present than I remember in any other Tree House IPA I've had. No bitterness at all. Decent mouthfeel but again, slight alcohol burn.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
Served in a teku

Outstanding appearance. The beer poured a hazy, glowing straw yellow color. Not quite as turbid as your typical Tree House IPA. The body was topped by a fluffy, frothy, two-finger tall, bright white crown that slowly fell to a thin collar. A blanket of craggily lacing coated the glass and lasted until the drink’s end.

The aroma was fantastic. Tropical fruits dominated. Loads of ripe guava and mango. Big peach candy presence too. Super punchy and bold. As the beer sat, dry yeasty notes took over. Later, however, the fruitiness reappeared. Candied orange and tangerine were also quite noticeable. Some dank, Mosaic hop-like notes appeared toward the drink’s end.

The flavor profile was also terrific. Citrus notes dominated. Huge candied orange and tangerine presence. Quite sweet but also somewhat pithy and bitter. Pineapple was noticeable in the center. Ruby red grapefruit and candied grapefruit peel came through on the back end and the finish. Nice balance of fruity sweetness and oily, resiny bitterness.

Amazingly smooth, fluffy mouthfeel. Medium-light bodied for the style. The liquid contained a soft, moderate effervescence that blanketed my tongue after every sip. Signature Tree House.

Potently hoppy yet incredibly well balanced with a lighter body and an impossibly soft and creamy mouthfeel, Bbbrighttt W/ Citra is the epitome of what I love about Tree House’s hoppy beers. I could drink this for days.

Basically a Bright beer with lots of Citra hops. Light mouthfeel with good ample hops but not too bitter. White head lasts for a good long time and goes down easy.

16oz. can served in my Spiegelau tulip. Pours a lovely muted orange with a tight, half inch, bright white head. Head disperses into an oily slick. Some swaths of lacing revealed during the tasting. Clarity is only slightly hazy. Nose is fairly subdued - notes of tangerine and an herbal quality. Taste consistent with nose, albeit a little juicer than suggested by the nose. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (closer to light) with an even carbonation and a mild acidity. Overall, decent with a well-hidden abv, but lacking in depth and complexity.

Pours as all of these do, hazy, light gold, big whipped cream head, some lacing. A creamy orange-mango melange dominates the aroma without much else, save for a very slight herby/earthy character in the background. The flavor is orange pulp, mango, a touch of grapefruit essence, and a similarly subtle earthy/leafy note that reminds you it's a beer and not a smoothie. This has an absolutely lovely feel. Soft and juicy with a very faint resinousness that balances it out, creamy carbonation and a lingering hop-fruit finish. I don't known what more to say. This is a spectacularly good, drinkable beer. It completely captures the character of this hop with a luscious feel, just enough of a non-fruity suggestion to make you want another sip. Just downright good. These guys have got these beers down-fucking-pat, no doubt about it! I am a little torn, because part of me wants it to have a little more bite since it is juicy turned up to 11, on the other hand it is so good, I'd be worried about ruining a great thing. I get that there are a lot of good beers out there and that these guys pretty much make one style and that that style is a touch divisive in some quarters, but for god's sake this is a single hop beer. It is not often that someone can coax flavors like this. Mmm...

As always, I bow to your misplaced generosity in sharing this with me, your silly pope-ness. And that applies to the other ones I've tried recently, too.

16oz can, dated 08.02.2019, poured into a Tree House snifter glass.

The beer pours a very hazy bright golden color, lemon and straw hues with some faint amber and oranges and atop the beer rests a foamy white head, about a finger tall with moderate retention and fair lacing. The aroma is nice, grassy and dank with some nice earthy pine and citrus rind while as it warms, the brighter fruit expression come to the forefront. Mango, citrus juice, pineapple, a nice tropical cocktail while sweet yeast and mineral water linger. The flavors are good, lots of juicy tropical fruits, fresh and bright but boy this one is dank and green. Raw hop leaf, spice, resinous and sappy pine with a nice floral character that plays well with the earthy character while sweet grains, lightly sweet yeast and a mineral water character sit on the tongue after the finish. The mouthfeel is very good, coating, medium body that is creamy and smooth with an easy full finish and a dry bite follows.

Verdict: A very good NEIPA from Tree House. Juicy, dank, grassy, floral, bright, perhaps even Bbbrighttt! All around a nicely balanced and complex IPA that doesn't get pigeonholed into a one dimensional experience.
