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

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of soapy white head. The head leaves a ring of lacing as it settles into a thick blanket of foam.

The aroma brings notes of lemon drop candy, oranges, grapefruit, and fresh mangoes. Lightly floral, dank and pungent.

The flavor brings notes of lemon sorbet, lime zest, candied oranges and mangoes. There's a faint hint if mixed berries on the finish.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth and creamy with a dry finish.

Overall, a great DIPA that is full of flavor and nicely balanced. It's highly drinkable despite the ABV.

16 oz. can dated 11/7/18. Poured into IPA glass.

L: Hazy golden orange color. Nice big fluffy white head on the pour, with good retention and lots of lacing and a cap and ring.

S: Grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon-lime seem to predominate.

T: As nose would indicate, with the addition of a solid malt backbone and some earthiness.

F: Light to medium body and carbonation. Construction is very good, balance as well.

O: Very tasty and drinks easily.

Pours an opaque light orange with three fingers of dense, white foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is might guava and pineapple from the moment the can is cracked open. Papaya and mango add a little fleshy, orange citrus underneath, with doughy, bready malts forming the foundation. Flavor profile is guava, pineapple and lesser notes of fleshy papaya and orange zest. Citrus is big, with light doughy, biscuity malts underneath. There is a spicy, yeasty note driving through the profile that cuts the citrus down, and lingers for a while itself. Mouth feel is a modest chalky, with a medium thickness. Overall, big citrus notes cut by a spicy, yeasty quality makes for an interesting beer, but in a good way. Despite the big citrus notes, it doesn't push the usual button sequence most big NE IPAs hit, making it slightly unique in the crowd.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Thanks to rudzud
Decent creamy fluffy head that fade semi quickly, decent lacing but not much, murky hazy carrot pale orange-yellow color

NOse big citrus, little musty note and dank tropical but not a ton, big rind, some pith, guava papaya notes, dank tropical mosaic like notes but thankfully not much of the onion/garlic like

Taste mild sweet cracker malt, toasted grains and creamy wheat, then hops, a little bitterness but citrus, very pithy, little papaya and dank notes, sweet candied fruit, but a weird bitterness mixed in, and spicy thing, dank too esp on the bitter rindy finish

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, little creamy

Overall eh, nothing special

Picked up at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

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

S - Aromas of nice grapefruit peel and tropical fruit notes. Juicy but smells like there are some mosaic in this one.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with very lighter hop flavors. The bitterness is a rather strange one. There are decent softer citrus but it's super muted.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little creamy but thin.

O - Overall this was a somewhat underwhelming Tree House beer. Decent but not spectacular by any means.
