Notes / Commercial Description:
As a brewer-owned brewery, one of the hallmark attributes of Tree House Brewing Company is continuous evolution, candid self assessment, and progressive hands on experimentation. Our Curiosity series affords us the opportunity to experiment outside the box, with small discoveries being imparted into our core beers to make them better and better over time. The most recent Curiosity beers have found us taking a deep dive into process, iterating aggressively on long established procedures and questioning every step of our process to elevate our beer to a new level. The most recent excursion finds us utilizing heavy additions of Amarillo with kisses of our favorite American hops in ways that are novel. The result is a beer that smells as much like concentrated tropical fruit juice as we ever recall making. The flavor follows suit, with a well balanced construct providing the perfect amount of body and sweetness to support the flavors that precede it. This beer is a joy to drink, and one we are very pleased to offer you today.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque golden-orange color with a finger of effervescent white head. The head leaves a ring of sticky cobweb lacing before settling into a blanket of foam.

The aroma brings notes of candied peach rings, mango juice, pineapples, guava, and honeydew melons. Tropical fruit juice, indeed.

The flavor follows suit: Peach rings, pineapples, mangoes, and guava. There's some fainter citrus notes on the finish with a cracker malt backbone. Sweet but subtly bitter.

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

Overall, shit. This is amazing. Try finding a more tropical IPA. I dare you. It's like Terry Crews went to the Caribbean and decided to flex and make beer with Nate Lanier. I have no idea what Terry Crews has to do with anything but this beer is legit. Haze on steroids.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on February 8, 2019. Brewed with Amarillo and American hops. Notes of sweetened tropical fruit juice. Hazy and full bodied. Highly recommended.

Canned 1/23/19, thanks to rudzud for picking it up

Pours a big foamy creamy thick head with decent retention, big soapy lacing, very cloudy murky mango-orange color

NOse explodes with tropical fruit, maybe the most aromatic TH beer, loads of mango and papaya, mango sherbet, some grapefruit and plenty of citrus tangerine orange like, but more like orange cream, then pineapple waves flash in, little pith, orange juice pulp, and creamy flaked soft malts, little fruity melon as it warms

Taste tons more fruit, juicy tropical fruits, loads of mango out front, juicy mango sherbet, little papaya, into more citrus with some grapefruit pith, orange juice with pulp, tangerine, etc, then more pineapple as well, touch of rind and melon coming as it warms, more juicy creamy flaked malts and oats, soft juicy, a touch of sweetness, dry finish with some mild spicy hop flavor and fair bitterness kicking in late

Mouth is med bod but full feeling soft creamy juicy, very chewy, nice creamy carbonation, only a touch of warming booze late

Overall quite nice, another big winner for TH, great tropical fruits and citrus, great mouth with soft creamy juicy feel, bitterness kicks in nicely at the end which is an interesting change from typical TH NEIPAs

A flawless delicious Tree House NE IPA. Look, scent, feel, taste....How could you improve on this? A perfect balance of perceived citrus juice and mild inoffensive hops....Tree House are NE IPA Gods, at least as far as I'm concerned!

Can dated 1/23/19. Poured into Belgian tulip.
Look is very dense light orange haze with a white head. Nose is dense tropical fruit salad, bit of vanilla in the back. Taste follows the same with a ton of passionfruit especially, finish has a smidge of bitterness and is medium dry. Mouthfeel is medium full. Overall really nice super tropical fruit saturated brew, even more than usual. Great stuff.

Great foam build, lasts over 10 minutes. Well blended, not particles, bright orange haze. Orange, Mango, Cream, Pineapple, very smooth and enjoyable. Reminds me of Doppelganger.
