TreatTreat
Notes: This Tree House imperial IPA was brewed to celebrate the Autumn season and the accompanying Halloween holiday! By utilizing enormous kettle and dry-hop additions, we are able to coax clean and vibrant flavors of orange, lychee, mango, and grapefruit from a base of simple ingredients. The nose is pungent, and we like to describe it as a tropical fruit hop bag. This beer is brewed to have a candy-like orange sweetness to balance the intense hop onslaught. It is intensely flavored but never overbearing, just the way we like a double IPA. It’s not a trick, but a Treat to enjoy on the most spooky of days!

Cloudy light orange with two fat fingers of yellowed head. Great retention and thick lacing.

Underripe pineapple dominates the nose with hints of papaya, honeydew and guava underneath.

The taste also has that strong underripe tropical fruit and melon vibe which teeters between sweet and not-at-all-sweet because of that greeness to it which imparts a certain level of bitterness.

Full, almost chewy feel with very tight fizz.

Normally underripe fruit qualities don’t do it for me in an IPA, but the fruit medley in this is quite strong, distinct and enjoyable. Recommended.

Consumed 12/13/19

A: Pale tangerine orange with some honey tones - hazy - pours with a medium sized white head, fades to a few wisps but retains a small collar that leaves some nice rings of lacing

S: At first impression, sweet fruit - tangerine and orange juice with some sugar-topped ruby red grapefruit - tropical aromas, with mango and some pineapple - some light herbal notes, leafy hops, some woodsy aromas - definitely sweet overall, but not clear if it is the hops or the malt base, but it's probably a combination

T: Basically a tropical fruit juice topped off with more sugar - candied orange, mandarin slices, tangerine, with a hint of grapefruit - some floral and lightly oily citrus - slightly herbal and slightly dank hops - mango, pineapple, maybe some peach or apricot - an undercurrent of sweetness, which is not as borderline unpleasant as in Super Treat, but it's there (and clearly intentional) - touches of earth, low-medium bitterness

M: Medium body, smooth if not a bit slick, finish could be cleaner

O: Sometimes the original is better

I don't recall being particularly fond of Super Treat, yet I somehow gave it an overall score of 4.02. Oh well, I've never obsessed too much on scoring anyway. Regardless, I enjoy Treat more than Super Treat, with the latter just being too much. I still don't particularly love Treat, but I'd probably drink it again.

a: hazy mango orange, burnt yellow, and light caramel. pours a large, 3 finger rocky off-white head

s: tangy orange juice, mango, pineapple upfront. a touch of sweet malt, and generic stonefruit. creamsicle and fluffy biscuits behind. more tropical juice on the close out of the aroma

t: sweet, ripe mango, buttermilk biscuits, guava, pineapple and orange juice. clementines, dragonfruit, and a touch of grapefruit behind that. a little bit of earthy hops that almost musty and has the faintest kiss of bitterness. the close is mango

m: super fluffy, medium mouthfeel with mid-low carbonation

o: awesome NEIPA. juicy, tropical, and smooth. great harmonization, and very fluffy mouthfeel. ABV is quite high, so be warned

Pours a nice hazy yellow color with a strong white lacing. The smell of the beer is soft and citrusy. The taste of the beer is creamy yet bitter in the finish, great balance. The feel is smooth and soft. Overall this beer is pretty damn good.

Look: orange juice with a hint of maybe pick light head

Smell: Can’t pull much out of it

Taste: Clean, juicy. Lightly hoppy. Mildly bitter and dry finish.

Feel: Very clean and straightforward. Nothing to complain about here. This is a smooth and highly drinkable imperial ipa.

Overall: This is a very clean beer, not for anyone looking for a ton of flavor.
