Notes / Commercial Description:
AAAlterrr Ego is a rendition of Alter Ego that utilizes additional kettle and dry hops to amplify and intensify the flavor profile of Alter Ego! Further, we alter the base beer in many ways throughout the brewing process to accept the additional hop charges. The result here is one that is exceptionally fruity and delicious. Layers of tropical fruit, mango, and stone fruit are presented here with a freshness and purity that is genuinely unique and exciting to our palate! We are in love with this beer

My second Treehouse beer. It's really good. Lots of fruit in the mango variety with a light bitterness and a clean finish.

Sampling a cold 16 oz can poured into my snifter. The beer is from July 2018 and has been in my fridge since purchase. Beer pours a murky goldenrod color with almost no light passing through the glass.
A spongey bleached white head of 2 cm foams up on a gentle pour and slowly recedes to the surface of the beer.
Very tight lattice remains on the sides of my glass as the foam recedes.
The aroma is a mix of mango and apricots with a little bit of orange mixing in for good measure.
First sip reveals an average body with crisp texture. Very fine and tingly carbonation rolls across my palate on each sip.
The flavor is similar to the nose with lots of fruit notes. Again mango and orange flavors come through with just a bit of the pithy bitter notes from citrus fruit as well. There is a bit of grapefruit coming through here too. The finish lingers a little bit with fruit notes and just a bit of bite. I dont get any hints of ABV as I drink this brew and find it to be an enjoyable new england IPA. Glad to have had a can.

Consumed 10/1/18

A: Golden orange with some medium orange at its core and gold around the edges - turbid and hazy - pours with a small, off white head, fades to virtually nothing but retains a small collar and leaves some spots of lacing

S: Tropical fruit juice - as advertised, this definitely reminiscent of Alter Ego but with the volume cranked up a few notches - notes of citrus, with some fresh-squeezed orange juice and notes of grapefruit - tons of tropical notes, with mango dominating, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya as well - some notes of white grape - some hints of straight-up hops underneath the tropical notes, with some herbal notes, some tropical pine tree Mosaic weirdness - fresh peaches - some slight malt sweetness at the base

T: Yup, tropical fruit juice - to some extent this kind of tastes like eating a cup of mixed fruit where the fruit has been sitting for a bit so each fruit kind of tastes like the other fruit - orange, grapefruit, peach, apricot, white grape, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, and maybe even a squirt of lime - decidedly ridiculous - low bitterness - some herbal and slightly earthy hops, with some dry tropical pine - maybe some pale grain and malt at the base, but it's hard to detect anything but fruit

M: Medium body, smooth and chewy, finishes with some residual hop roughness

O: It's fruit salad

Alter Ego was one of the first Tree House beers I ever had, and I gave it quite a high score when I reviewed it in 2015. AAAlterrr Ego is the type of beer that you could have someone try and be entirely sure that it would elicit a "wow" reaction. But is it an improvement over Alter Ego because it's fruitier? I think it loses some detail in the noise of the fruit. But yes, it's awesome.
