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!

Love the label. 16oz can into Night Shift stemware.

This one is a little more pale that I'm used to. Nose is Sunkist soda, orange tic-tac, orange gummies and resin and clementines. There's a mellow aroma of that unmistakable Treehouse dankness though. Beer opens orange and clementine juice. Some cane sugar and overripe pineapple sweetness also. There's not really any complexity or layers to this one. It's just straight alcoholic orange juice. A fantastic showcase of the citra hop though. Body is medium with moderate to ample carbonation. Prickly and with some sharp edges on the palate but this one smooths out quickly going down. Juicy finish and aftertaste.

Easily the best of the bright series though I'm definitely partial to the Citra hop profile. Worth trying.

16 oz. can. Hazy orange. Smells of intense citra hops. Orange, a little passion fruit, some sweet pale malt, a touch of alcohol. It's got a bit of the citra cat piss/weird dank notes. Tastes of orange, grapefruit pith, light sweetness, some citrus zest, a bit of alcohol, and a heftier does of the citra weirdness in the finish. Medium heavy. It's kinda monotonic, but citra never offers much dynamism, I suppose.

Poured into a pint glass via can from Tree House

Smell is muted citra, not nearly as strong ad i thought it would be

Taste is citra hops all the way, very citrus and tropical forward

This is a middle of the road tree house beer which is still a damn fine beer but not a personal favorite

Picked-up twelve cans last Wednesday at the Tree House Brewery for four dollars and eighty cents each. My eighth brew from these guys. Solid brew, not my favorite from TH.
