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

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color capped by a two finger head; good stickage with a splashy clumps of lace

Smell: Very juicy, with tangelo, mango and peach tones

Taste: While the opening mirrors the juicy tones on the aroma, with tangelo, mango and peach, the mid-palate features a moderate bitterness, with hints of orange pith and lime; the finish is soft and juicy, as the bitterness fades

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very pleasant NE IPA, with all the comely attributes of the style

Thanks, PhineasMcClintock, for the opportunity

Got this 16oz can from good old hockey buddy, Lance, in trade for some Belgian goodies... time to dig in while watching some NFL playoffs... Canned on 04AUG18...

Poured into a trusty Smutty snifter... It is a bright yet muted golden color. Quite hazy, of course, It's too murky to see any carbo, and up top there's thin, fine layer of miniscule white bubbles. Lacing is quite light, all in all. Aroma has a lot of citrus, with rindy, piney notes coming forth. Body is a good medium, but it has more prickle than I like in a beer.

Flavor just jumps out with loads of bitterness. Has some light, crackery malt, but then goes hop-city. Not finding anything really sweet or tropical; just an abundance of rindy, pithy citrus, like grapefruit and lemon-peel. Finish is dry and chalky. Quite disappointed, as I'd heard lots of solid stuff about Tree House. Can it have lost all of its mojo in just 5 months? Or was it just a product of the tickerati hype machine (THMâ„¢)? I will try to have one fresh down the road, but for now it is what it is. Prosit!

TREE HOUSE AAALTERRR EGO DIPA 1/2/19

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

a; Opaque orange with a finger thick white head which receded to a layer of surface foam and dense lacing.

s; The signature citrus leaning heavily to orange and orange rind. Exactly the aroms which often greets a visitor to the TH brewery. Very yummy.

t; Follows the nose with orange rind strength over a solid bready malt base. Dry finish with light bitterness notes.

m; Medium, very good body and some carbonation tingle.

o; This hopped-up Alter Ego is noticeably so. Very substantial for a marginal session IPA, DIPA flavor without the higher ABV. Another of the many superior TH offerings.
