SpringSpring
Notes: Spring is a Tree House Double IPA brewed with the spirit and feeling of renewal that comes with each New England Spring! A simple grist of 2-Row and Dextrin malt is utilized to create a beer that is glowing yellow and visually appealing. Spring is crafted with our house yeast, coaxed to be slightly less estery to allow the individual hop character to shine in conjunction with subtle but prevalent fruity esters of peach & pineapple. We utilize extreme levels of hop dosing in both the kettle and dry hop for Spring - more than is typical of our extra kettle & dry hopped double IPA’s - to create a beer that is rich with fruity hop oils and and intense disposition that coats the palate. The predominant flavor profile is overripe tropical fruit, akin to a fresh pressed juice with guava, mango, papaya, passionfruit, and citrus. It is assertive but not overbearing, gentle yet flavor-saturated. It is a beer we are excited to offer you as we enter the season of renewal.

16 oz can split with my brother-in-law, poured into a wine glass. Pours a slightly cloudy straw yellow with a beautiful and long-lasting head. Aroma and flavor feature bright citrus, wheat, and grassy tropical fruit. Some sharp/spicy hop notes as well. Mouthfeel has average carbonation and is a little bit sharper than expected.

16oz. can into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

Nose is citrus, strawberry, clementine, and overripe pineapple. Sweet and moderately juicy... but sweeter than almost any other hazy I've had. Very aromatic. Beer opens citrus, mango, pineapple, strawberry, and sweet blueberry. More citrus and clementine and overripe tropical fruit in the middle. Soft, fluffy finish. Body is light and fluffy with ample carbonation. Slightly prickly on the palate and goes down aggressive and quenching. Super drinkable.

I think this is the best season beer that TH is turning out by far. Really nice.

This beer pours a light orange color. There's a very fluffy, almost cloud like, white head. The head retention is quite good, and long lasting, and there's some really nice lacing on the glass.
The nose has a floral aroma, as well as a lot of citrus, tropical hops. I get Mango, tangerine, maybe a bit of pineapple.
Taste - A nice mellow malt up front that turns to those citrus hops on the back. Mango, tangerine, pineapple all hit in on the back. I'm actually also getting a melon flavor here. It's faint, but there as well.
The body is very soft. Very juicy. There's a hint of the carbonation going on here also. Pretty full bodied.
Solid and delicious.

This DIPA has it all. A great look--the brightest, haziest grapefruit juice look, with an amply bright white foamy head. Pop the can, and citrus hop aromas fill the air. The mouthfeel, is silky, buttery--you'd half expect citrus pulp.. And the taste--melon, peach, with the dry bite and finish of Amarillo and Warrior. Blended, complex, delicious!

Pours a very hazy golden straw color with a dense bone white head that has that ubiquitous Tree House “sticks like Saran Wrap to the glass” appearance that I like so much. The nose is heavy on the dank tropical citrus scale with loads of ripe tangerine, mango, and passion fruit, and there’s an earthiness as well that I’d imagine is courtesy of the Amarillo hops.

The tangerine, mango, and passion fruit flavors are forward on the taste, and there’s a creamy oat flavor as well. The mouthfeel is a bit in the watery side, otherwise this is world-class all the way, IMHO. Truly a delicious juice bomb from the masters of that style.

Canned 3 weeks ago.

L -- Pale golden orange haze with two fingers of dense white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and lacing... the usual Tree House
S -- Lemon sorbet, tangerine, gristy malts
T -- Melon, kumquat, yellow grapefruit rind, green leafiness, hint of dried floral
F -- Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Not super fluffy, but has a nice tapering bitterness on the finish that isn't biting
O -- These 'season' beers really define, for me, the middle of the road for the Tree House lineup in terms of quality. Neither great nor mediocre, I kinda like them most for the can art

85/100

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Lots of tropical fruit up front along with some citrus and melon. Floral notes present as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of tropical fruit and melon, then picks up the citrus and floral notes. Light-moderate bitterness. Finishes with lingering tropical fruit

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very good DIPA that is super easy to drink. Feels lighter than it is. Perfect seasonal, highly recommended

Pours an opaque dirty straw color with a finger of fluffy white head. The nose can best be described as pith & pine. The flavor has dry citrus notes with the finish ending quite bitter like pepper sprinkled on a grapefruit (trust me - it's better than that description makes it sound). The body is fairly hearty as Treehouse beers go.

L - pours an oat-fueled, milky yellow that seeps into the white head.

S - light and fruity up front. Lemon, pears, and watered-down orange juice. Hint of satsuma complements the exotic, flowery aromatics.

T - zesty and peppery. Spicy grapefruit, dark purple grape must, and pineapple cream. Herbaceous bitterness leaves a fresh, minty feel behind, at the same time bringing rindy tears to my eyes. That grassy hoppiness lingers long after the sip, developing berry-like flavors.

F - spicy and tingly. Electric and energetic carbonation with a full, thiqq feel.

O - a few seasons behind, but I can still dig it. It's fall now, which is basically spring, but more wet, so we're still fine, right? Hits a bit hard on the Mosaic side of things with its peppery spiciness, but I guess it's a good way to snap you back to your senses after the winter hibernation.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Tree House Willi Becher pint glass; canned on 06/02/20.
A: Pours an opaque, light orange color with a two finger, white head, rim and cap retention. Amorous lacing across the glass.
S: Aromas of basil, white grapefruit, nectarine, tangerine, pineapple, and caramel predominate.
T: Semi-sweet with palate focused on a creamy, citrusy melange, although all nose elements discernable. Seems to have a banana essence, as well. Bitterness solid, providing some balance to the sweetness and flavors.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy, almost frozen banana, sensation on the palate.
O: This tastes a bit like Julius and Wrench by Industrial Arts had a baby. I usually like my NEIPAs fruity, but I will make an exception in this case.
