Curiosity Fifty OneCuriosity Fifty One
Notes: Curiosity Fifty One is the latest in a long-standing line of experimental, inquisitive, and process-progressing hoppy beers by Tree House! For Fifty One, we utilized large amounts of a newer hop varietal, Sabro (Previously HBC 438), to impart a distinctive and unique flavor profile of mango, coconut, and lemon grass. We also added a splash of Amarillo and Citra to help buoy the tropical characteristics presented by Sabro. A pale grist coupled with a uniquely heavy dose of oats (for us) creates a supple body and subtle oaty contribution on the finish. It’s so pleasant and interesting to drink - give it your full attention and it will reward the senses over a tall and delicious pint glass. This is the first of many future Curiosity beers that will explore the most recent discoveries made by our friends in the hop fields of Yakima.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance is a hazy dull orange and poured with 2 fingers of fluffy white head.

Aroma is mango, grapefruit, lemon and a hint of coconut.

Taste is mainly lemon and then bits of mango, grapefruit and a hint of coconut as well.

Feel is super soft and creamy, medium body and carb.

Overall a fantastic beer from Treehouse. Obviously not in the same league as others they make but quite delicious nonetheless! Very glad I got the opportunity to try this one!

16 ounce can dated 9/28/18. Poured into Kane tulip glass.

L: 1.5F head with decent retention and a fair amount of lacing. Cap and ring. Beer is a hazy light gold with an orange tinge.

S: Hints of tropical and lemongrass notes with oats and earthiness.

T: More or less follows nose. The lemongrass plays fairly strongly, but the mango and earthiness stick around as well. More malty than your average TH IPA.

F: Mediumish body, light to moderate carbonation. As usual, all is in balance and the construction is well done.

O: It's fine, but doesn't really stand out in the TH oeuvre.

L - lot of interesting hops in this one. Let's see what's up. Dull, ripe mango juice. Kinda brownish, but a nice thick head with great lacing.

S - bright and citrusy. Lemon and tangerine. Hints of coriander and minty freshness. Peach starts to come out, along with vanilla and boatloads of melon.

T - tropical and oaty. Not sure if coriander or oat bitterness. Overall flavor profile is light and playful. Lime juice, grape candy, and an underlying sweetness. Coconut comes out during burps and explains the gentle sweet sensation. Peachy and fruity, maybe some fruit by the foot. Clean and easy to drink with minimal bitterness aside from mild acidity, and crisp dryness that begs another sip.

F - keeping with the bright and lively theme, the feel is light yet fuzzy and creamy.

O - I gotta hand it to em. This is certainly different and unique. The flavors can feel a little muted at times, but what's there is fun to drink, that's for sure.

Picked up at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden orange hue with a one finger head that fades to leave light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of nice bright fresh hops, oranges, citrus peel, lemon grass, mango, creamy oats, almost cake batter. Unique.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with big citrus peel, orange juice, lemon grass, melon, light mango, little bit of cake batter. Berry like, really unique!

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, fluffy, great.

O - Overall this was a very solid ipa. Really really nice ipa with a unique hop profile.

Serving Type: can
