BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Curiosity Sixty Two finds us experimenting with the reasonable limit of hop loads in both the kettle and dry hop. It utilizes the most substantial hop charge in our history, resulting in a beer that is intensely fruity, with sharp balancing bitterness that quenches your thirst and entices the next sip. We taste and smell fruit loops, tropical fruit leather, and tang balanced by a deliberate and satisfying bitterness. This beer is not messing around as it coats the palate with fruity, modern hop nourishment. A landmark Curiosity, indeed - intended to be savored and enjoyed with friends and family alike.

Picked-up two cans at the Tree House brewery in Charlton for $5.05/can. My 39th brew from these guys. Solid brew, but does not stand out when compared against other beer bought that day (particularly Doublebanger & Green).

On tap at the brewery. White head. Hazy orange juice color.

Very vibrant and tropical. Melon, guava, and mango for days. Floral and earthy hops. A bit green. Light bitterness. Very juicy.

L - pours a thick, yellowy mango juice. Stops light dead in its tracks with its turbid murk. FIzzy head that's gone before I finish this sentence. Says it's loaded with hops and it certainly looks the part.

S - saturated tropical juice. Hints of diacetyl butteriness and vanilla peach cream. Ripe mango, orange creamsicle, and the epitome of juice. Keeping up with the recent Curiosity trend, I see!

T - up front is a huge punch of sweet juicy fruit butter and pineapple extract. Then the green melon seeps in... then the yeasty hop acidity. Bit of a burn here, eh? Far from Never & Again territory, but there's some green heat. Toeing that "reasonable" line. Getting some of that sugary fruity cereal noted in the description, complete with milk. Mandarin orange fruit cups harken back to my youth along with spicy grapefruit peel heat. Finish lets the acidity just sit on the tongue as grassy hop bitterness makes an appearance.

F - thick and chock full of hops. A little mealy, a little zesty, loads of hop residue coats the tongue and mouth. A hair on the airy side.

O - some serious range on this beer. Goes from juice saturation to spicy hop twang in no time at all, yet still spends plenty of time at every step along the way. Has that signature Tree House shameless juiciness that I dig hard, but the unbalanced acidic burn keeps it from being great. Still awesome tho.

[IMG] So I got this gem from a local friend and good gravy it is insanely tasty. Canned April something can’t read what day, but fresh. Pours a beautiful hazy yellow orange with a finger white head that leaves some nice thin wisps of webby lace. 4.75

Smell is papaya, guava, tangerine, pineapple, and a hint of white grapefruit rind tropical all the way with very little bitterness. I love this nose. 5

Taste just assaults your entire palate with tropical guava, papaya, pineapple, mandarin, and the smallest amount of grapefruit in the finish. 5

Mouthfeel is soft, gentle carbonation but not flat, sticky but not dry, and goes down so crazy easy at 8.2%5

Overall wow is really all I can say. I am going to have one of my favorites after to see how it stacks up with this insane NEDIPA. 4.75

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque golden orange color with a half-finger of bright white head. The head fades quickly, leaving very little lacing before settling into a halo.

The aroma is classic Tree House: Candied orange, tangerines and honeydew melon with a hint of watermelon and doughy malt. Just explodes from the can as soon as it's opened.

The flavor follows suit: Candied citrus, melon, and sweet doughy malt with just a hint of spicy hops on the finish.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very creamy and exceptionally dry on the finish. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Overall, a fantastic DIPA that is full of classic Tree House flavors and aromas whilst still being unique. It's a citrus bomb but there's plenty of malt and spicy hop character to balance everything out.
