I Have Promises To KeepI Have Promises To Keep
Notes: In 2014, I brewed an American Pale Ale - Beneficiaries of Chance - to celebrate marrying the love of my life, Lauren. Over the years time it has become a perpetual tradition to honor our bond with a new, celebratory beer to mark the occasion. For our fourth anniversary, I am pleased to offer a new Double IPA, I Have Promises To Keep! It is brewed with copious doses of Nelson and Citra in both the kettle and the dry hop. It tastes and smells strongly of citrus, sweet sauvignon blanc grapes, and gooseberries. It is loaded with flavor and yet maintains an easy drinking, mouth watering appeal. As the years pass by, and bonds grow deeper, it’s vital to reflect upon, and give thanks for, the special people in your life. I sincerely hope that this beer may serve as a vehicle to do so.

Nice juicy hoppy aroma. Juicy, lemony, bitter flavor. Exceptionally easy drinking DIPA.

1 month old. Can to pint glass.

Look: Pours a light hazy yellow with a thick white foam and a nice lacing. No floaters.

Smell: Fresh citrus fruits. Mainly lemon. A bit orange.

Taste: Also citrus. Lemon and orange are nicely balanced. A bit grapefruit. Slightly zesty. Hints of sweetness punctuated with subtle bitter notes.

Feel: Nice and smooth. Not as full as other Treehouse brews but still very juicy. Just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall: Great example of a hazy Treehouse DIPA with the typical citrus notes. Not as spectacular as some others of their brews yet still very solid.

Bright white head, close to two fingers, decent retention, lacing forms a pleasing thin webbing. Fully opaque liquid, more yellow than anything darker, visually it's the lacing that's most attractive. There's a firm spine to the nose formed of white pepper and green grass, penetrates very well, dried pine sap, melon, kumquat, kiwi, peach fruit scents, well-balanced and integrated. Light to medium-bodied, the carbonation sizzles like a fireworks sparkler, more steady than powerful. Mix of pink and white grapefruit flavors, the pine more pronounced here. The fruit remains mostly green melon, kiwi and peach with moments of sour pineapple. Sweet tea leaf, chamomile, oats assist it in staying the middle ground between sweet and dry. This while allowing for the right amount of bitterness to linger through the finish. Makes you want to take another sip. (Canned 12/20/21)

“Winter night skies” 12/20/21
Been noticing some TH labels describe a beer as “Tree House Double IPA” while others are “American DIPA.” Naturally, this is quintessential TH. Absolute masterpiece. So smooth, so fruity, so drinkable. Massive citrus bomb with Nelson and Citra so it’s no surprise that this is incredible.

Sweet, white wine grape, tropical hoppy, and orange citrus malty nose on this one! Taste follows with a pillowy-soft, hoppy and citrus-dank finish. This is really good stuff!

Canned 9/16/20, tasted 11/12/20. A very nice light DIPA, but not my favorite overall. The look was very nice - a hazy straw color. It's got a mild aroma and the taste tends towards a dry, tart finish, but does have a good amount of citric fruitiness as well. It's got a lighter mouthfeel overall than many Tree House DIPAs, which felt a little weak to me, but might have been more appealing on a really hot day.

Pours a straw color with a half finger of head. The nose is nicely citrusy. The flavor profile has citrus upfront with some really potent earthy bitterness on the finish. The body is slightly light for the style.

Appearance: Pretty typical opaque orange-yellow Tree House color. Very tall white fluff on top. Tonzz of lacing on the sides.

Aroma: Pine and ripe fruits.

Flavor: Various ripe fruits such as grapefruit, pear, melon. So hoppy yet soft.

Palate/Finish: Medium to light bodied, super smooth as always with TH IPAs. VERY easy to drink. Finishes with those ripe fruits again.

Overall: Another great IPA from Tree House.

16 oz. can. Murky orange. Big white head. Smells of orange peel and acidic citrus. Earthy yeast aroma, as many TH IPAs have. Tastes of sharp and acidic fruits with a grape juice backdrop. Not all that sweet. Earthy and chewy malt backbone. Medium heavy. A touch of booze. Pretty good. I appreciate the limited sweetness to it, but the earthy yeast is in full force, as a result.
