BBBrighttt - GalaxyBBBrighttt - Galaxy
Notes: BBBrighttt w/ Galaxy is a clean and elegant showcase for our favorite southern hemisphere hop - GALAXY! 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 tastes intense and much like fresh squeezed pineapple juice. A light body and fluffy mouthfeel make this beer such a pleasure to drink. We love the Bright series for its individualism as it allows the pure character of the hop to shine, foregoing the hop compound biotransformation that contributes depth, complexity, and originality to our core Tree House IPA's. With this beer you get perhaps the most authentic and intense Galaxy hop candy in our line-up, and what a sweet treat it is!

Pours bright orange gold, very cloudy with a robust soapy biscuit 3 finger head. The aroma is dense with citrus notes. Taste is a blast up front with orange and Meyer lemon notes that don't fade away even into the finish. A touch of earthy must can be detected in the finish as well. Mouthfeel is very soft and pillowy and there is a moderate amount of effervescence, light bitterness in the finish. This is quite good, not as sweet as some of the more famous TH IPAs but so well made.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on December 24, 2019. Brewed with the Southern hemisphere hop Galaxy. Notes of fresh squeezed pineapple juice with a light body and fluffy mouthfeel.

A- Pale yellow pour from the tallboy into a snifter. The body is very hazy and basically murky and the cap rises to one finger quickly. A thick and creamy texture on the foam and good head retention. Webs of lacing paint most of the glass as you sip this one down.

S- Fruity hops drive the medium strength aroma that just isn't quite as pungent as some of the other great NEIPAs of late. Tropical and stone fruit notes like melon, mango, papaya alongside tangerine, grapefruit, floral and dank hop hints.

T- The flavor profile sees the beer balance out between the tropical, stone fruit, dank and citrus hops but it still lacks that true pungency that you find in other IPAs. Melon, mango, mint, papaya, dank weed, grapefruit, orange, tangerine and creamsicle come to mind. Moderately sweet and hints of crackers and whole grains.

MF- Medium bodied with a beautiful creamy texture that is borderline chewy. Extremely soft and smooth with a high level of carbonation. Fluffs up like a pillow on the taste buds.

Nice fruity, herbal and floral hops but in the end it lacks the pungency and signature flavor that makes a truly excellent IPA.

16oz can, dated 12.03.19, poured into a Tree House snifter glass.

The beer pours a bright golden color, light amber hues, hazy and cloudy with a finger and a half of soapy white head, good retention and excellent lacing. The aroma is pleasant, raw green hop leaf, very floral, white grape, tropical fruit, pale grains, and sweet yeast. The flavors are good, bright but delicate, very floral, dank and green with a nice bitterness, white grape tanginess with sweeter juicy citrus and tropical fruits with a nice backbone of pale dough and a bit of mineral water. The mouthfeel is good, hearty medium body, thick and chewy with a nice liveliness and a creamy finish that offers a nice lingering dryness.

Verdict: A very nice NEIPA and take on Bright. The galaxy is extremely well expressed and offers nice brightness and balance to the more mosaic forward Bright or BBBrighttt. Definitely a great example of the hazy NEIPA style.

Can courtesy of yllib.
Looks like orange julius with amazing white fluffy head.
Smells like peaches and pineapple.
Tastes the same. Fruity mango and pineapple. Not much bitter notes.
Medium fluffy mouthfeel.
Very tasty.

by brentk56 from North Carolina

Appearance: The bubble show reveals a two fingered head perched atop the cloudy honey colored liquid; excellent retention and a few strands of lace

Smell: Pineapple and tangerine with hints of melon and lime

Taste: Pineapple forward with lime developing; some melon flavors round out the early profile; tangerine bitterness brings a touch of dankness, through the middle; the finish is rather dry, with both the tropical juice and the citrusy bitterness incorporated

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice expression of Galaxy in an NE IPA

Thanks, BostonDipas, for the opportunity

16 ouncer, direct from the source....canned 12/3/19..

Classic and typical TH NEIPA look, leaves an invincible light khaki cap and more then ample froth and lacing.

Sniff of the expected ripe pineapple, lime and mango...lovin it..

Delicious, fresh and fruity, overloaded with tropical fruit goodness,,,waves of pineapple, kiwi, berries, melons. Lucius, world class and highly worthy....a treat...

Consumed 9/7/19

A: Golden tangerine - hazy as a "typical" Tree House beer - pours with a small, off-white head and fades to a tiny collar, leaves some lacing

S: So much Galaxy, so much fruit - orange, tangerine, and orange sherbet - loads of tropical fruit, almost smells like ripe chunks of fruit, particularly pineapple - peach and melon - some dank and some spicy notes - hop cones, bags of hop pellets - some hoppy sweetness, but no malts to be found

T: Basically spicy fruit juice - orange slices with a spritz of grapefruit - dank, herbal, and leafy hops - some spicy hops, some pepper-like notes - loads of pineapple flesh, pineapple juice - mango, peach, cantaloupe - some lingering hotness that I guess is from the alcohol because I would not describe it as hop burn - malts are as pale as can be, even more overshadowed than the typical "Bright" beer - basically, again, this tastes like fruit juice

M: Medium body, very smooth, carbonation on the low side

O: GGGalaxyyyy

I had Bright w/Galaxy not too long ago, and I anticipated that Bbbrighttt w/ Galaxy would just be an amplified version. This is somehow different. Bright w/Galaxy tasted like a beer with a lot of Galaxy. This one is somehow less aggressive because it's basically like eating a pineapple fruit cup in a school cafeteria. I frankly do not understand how Tree House does these things.

It pours with that classic TH look. Perfectly cloudy dandelion with a nice marshmallow cap and streaky lacing. The smell is of pure, ripe, macerated peach flesh with a little musky funk and a creamy tropical roundness. I know, that sounds like nonsense, but it is all there. The flavor follows along with earthy, sweaty, stonefruity deliciousness and a firm little bite. It is rich and soft with well-concealed alcohol and a fluffy, nigh juicy feel overall. This was a very tasty beer that really captured the hop and was all too drinkable. It is without a doubt the best single hop galaxy beer I've ever had. Although I have definitely had some stinkers so that might not be totally fair. Just what it is supposed to be and a beer worthy of savoring, which I forgot to do because of how good it was.
