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.

Tall can direct and fresh from the brewery...11/15/18

Medium hazed, lasting eggshell cap, frothy lacing left on the glass.

Some apricot on the fruity sniff.

Pleasing and easy drinking, delicate fruit/hop balance, light candied citrus, again apricots, softly tropical hoppy goodness....fine sessioner...great to enjoy a quality 5.4% IPA in a world of 8-9% DIPA overload (self induced of course, and I'm not complaining...)

Well worth a try...go get some.

Pours slightly hazy, gold in color with one quarter inch head. Taste is mango, peach, and dry chardonnay. Light bodied, slightly bitter, with moderate carbonation. Prefer this to regular Bright. Light tasty and smooth. Could do several.

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.

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Nose is grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Citrusy tartness. Aromatic. Beer opens citrus, pine and grapefruit. Hints of underripe pineapple and grass towards the middle and end. A foamy, frothy finish with a touch of cane sugar at the finish. Body is light with moderate carbonation. Really drinkable. Soft on the palate and goes down dry. Light but lingering finish.

Like the description says, nicely balanced. I would have liked a touch more hop bitterness in this one but as is, really drinkable.

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

Thanks Drew for the can.
Can stamped 08/10/18.
5.4 ABV so I opted for a becher pint glass for this.
The appearance was a nice looking opaque yellow color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a nice pace. Nice looking messy lace wound around the glass.
The aroma had a semi-sweet crisp biscuity malt playing with the suggested citrusy hoppy tones. Just a tad of white peppery hop spice character levels it all out.
The flavor yields towards the hoppy bitterness initially and then adds a crisp spicy hoppiness then underscored by those biscuity-like malts. Mild aftertaste of those malts, hop spice and citrus rind.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine, somewhat low but I get it - it's a New England styled IPA. Lightly hop spicy and grassy sort of finish.
Overall, pretty good AIPA or NEIPA, whatever this is supposed to be, I'd still have again.

Canned 9 days ago.

L -- Slightly hazed golden straw body with a finger of white head produced with moderate pour. Great retention and good lacing
S -- Yellow grapefruit, lemon peel, mild botanicals, hint of fresh cut grass. Much less of that classic creamy yeast character I'm used to in TH offerings
T -- Grass, pine resin, grapefruit pith, crackery malts. Quite mild
F -- Fluffy and light. Medium+ carb
O -- Reminds me of the Lawson's Super Session offerings: lightly tropical, very easy drinking, and definitely best consumed very fresh to get all the delicate hop nuances

Bought a can at Tree House. Beer pours with a pale like yellow appearance with good lacing. Aromas are not too strong but could sense some pepper-ish bready malts. The taste has that spicy pepper but with some fruity pineapple and mango citrus. Slightly refreshing mouthfeel. Overall, interesting taste.
