Notes / Commercial Description:
Baby Bright was carefully crafted to showcase the beautiful unadulterated hop character of Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo in an easy drinking, clean, and light bodied package. This beer is fermented with clean American Ale yeast allowing the authentic hop character to shine through brightly. We taste tangerines, apricot, and candied grapefruit balanced by a soft bitterness that dissolves gently on the tongue. The hard working crew here at Tree House could not be more excited about this refreshing, easy drinking entry to our line-up. It is a study in balance, elegance, and restraint.

pours bright golden yellow with a bigger amount of head then most tree house IPAs. looks very bright, just like the others in the bright series. smells very lemony, almost like a tame, less funky farmhouse ale. do not get a lot of hops on the nose. taste is decent. no real hop bitterness. clean and very mild, which i think is what they are going for here. mouthfeel is surprisingly full. almost fools you for a second into thinking this is a regular or even double IPA. i’d be happy to have this on a regular basis.

Got in a trade with brutalfarce. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 1/10/2019. Pours very hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, light peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, light peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a fantastic session IPA. All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and fairly crisp/clean/refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/resinous/drying finish; not aggressive. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Amazing Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo profile. Extremely vibrant and fairly juicy/dank/earthy hop complexity; with a nice bready wheat/oat/malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness from crisp dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing style example.

Pours beautiful straw color that you cant see through. Smells bitter almost astringent with foam head about an inch that stands strong. Drinks lighter than it looks almost thin. Is more bitter than you'd expect being so light and dry. Not bad but other brights are better to me

Picked-up two cans at the Tree House brewery yesterday for three dollars and thirty cents. My twenty eighth beer reviewed from these guys. Decent, not great, kind of bland and watery.

Don't forget to read the bottom of the can! " Dispropertionately Delicious" it reads.
Canned on 1/10/19. Opened on 1/11/19

Oh yeah, its got that straw-gold color with a white haze within. Airy, yet dense pure white foam cap rises high in my long stemmed TreeHouse glass. Dissipates to minimal, lacy coverage.

The nose is full of ripe citrus and tangy edhed fruits from The triple-play of hops. Herbal citrus, dried wheat and grasses, honeydew melon, spicy cucumbers and electric apricot pops out for me in the aroma. A very light and grainy malt scent is detected way down deep in the mix.

The body and mouthfeel is very light, yet smooth and crisp. The neutral and clean ale yeast and easy maltiness makes this an easy session packed with interesting hop tones all over.

The hop complexity in the flavor starts out with light citrus, herbal grains and starfruit. The blend is one part pithy fruits, the other part grainy earth tones that tend to linger in a gentle, bitter style finish. Very well rounded with a light fruity edge that gives way to the dry-earthiness of the hops, and to a lesser extent, the malt charecter.

TreeHouse had a knack for making very light, yet complex IPA's that you feel and taste on the same level. This is one fine, easy drinking session IPA from the folks that really took the New England IPA styles to a new and amazingly consistent level.

Canned 12/26/28 and served in a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a dull, milky orange with a tight, two-inch, bright white head and a slight haze to the clarity. Nose expresses hints of citrus, rind and pale malts. Taste consistent with nose - someone subdued and a little bland. Mouthfeel is light in body with an even carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Overall, solid but nothing particularly special.
