Curiosity Sixty ThreeCuriosity Sixty Three
Notes: As a brewery, we have a stated goal to constantly improve, and question our existing processes in an endeavor to make our beer better. One of the hallmark attributes of Tree House Brewing Company is continuous evolution, candid self assessment, and progressive hands on experimentation. We are focused on process now more than ever, and have used the recent curiosity beers to refine and question our process while investigating highly specific variables related to mash temperature, our water profile, yeast pitching rates, kettle & dry hopping rates, and pH adjustment methodology. Curiosity Sixty Three shares much in common with Curiosity Sixty Two, with the exception of the malt bill. On Curiosity Sixty Two, we utilized appreciable amounts of aromatic malt to give a rich, candied sweetness to the malt body. On Curiosity Sixty Three, we opted for a super simple malt bill of 2-row and dextrin malt. The kettle & dry hop charges remained the same, and a significant uptick in calcium sulfate was utilized. The result is a sharper but brighter tasting beer, with vibrant and clear notes of citrus, starfruit, and pineapple balanced by a light malt body and dry finish. If you like your hoppy beers with intensity and mouth coating flavors, Curiosity Sixty Three will undoubtedly satisfy that craving. Like all Curiosity beers, the lessons learned here will be subtly folded into our existing core beers, elevating our whole line-up. This will never not be fun!

Picked up 3 cans of this. Planned on splitting one with JLindros but I'll just set one aside at this point. Canned on 4/5/19.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice really hazy pale golden orange hue with a dense creamy two finger white head that fades to leave creamy lacing and a really dense blanket.

S - Aromas of some rather musty tropical fruit along with flashes of lemon citrus. Maybe a little bit of potential mosaic as every now and then I get a faint hit of that vegative note mosaic can bring to the table.

T - Taste is similar to the nose just much brighter. Danker musty passion fruit and tropical notes, little bit of sweet pineapple and juicing oranges. Flashes of melon, not getting any strawberry that others back in early April mentioned. Finish has next to no bitterness or alcohol. Light sweetness going on as well with a very pleasant malt build.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, smooth, creamy, typical fluffy Tree House body with the alcohol hidden very, very well.

O - Overall this was a very pleasant DIPA. The appearance and mouthfeel are spot on Tree House but the nose didn't do much for me. Perhaps this peaked last week or so, which would be rather unusual for a Tree House hoppy beer which tends to hold up to many, many weeks before seeing discernible drop offs. Still, even with the nose issue for me I would happily drink this again.

Curiosity 63 pours a very hazy yellow orange with a solid finger sticky white head that leaves loads of thick webs of lace as it slowly settles, canned on 4/5/19. 5

Smell is pineapple, guava, honey dew melon, and some grapefruit rind. 4.75 Awesome

Taste follows just an amazing juicy and tropical NEDIPA! Pineapple, guava, melon, and just the smallest amount of bitterness from grapefruit. 4.75 Outstanding!

Mouthfeel is soft with the perfect amount of life, stick from the fresh hops, and at 8.3% ABV drinks crazy easy! 5

Overall this is just another amazing NEDIPA from probably the best in the business and a brewery that is just absolutely slaying it! 4.75

L - pours a similar murk to 62, but a bit paler and more like pineapple juice. Still a solid brick of impenetrable haze. The oily had has much more retention and leaves some sexy legs behind.

S - yeasty green melon and fruit salad. That thick, sweaty, tropical butteriness is dialed back a bit, but still present. Lemon and strawberry Starburst. Peach creamsicle.

T - looks like my nose was on point with the strawberry Starburst. This rendition has much more of a candy feel. Strawberry kiwi smoothie, pineapple chunks, and cream cheese fruit dip. Significantly less hop burn; this definitely feels more balanced and tame. A little bit of that lip-tingling acidity lingers on the end, giving it a dry bite.

F - light on the tongue, but creamy in carbonation. Soft like the fuzz on a peach.

O - it's a more relaxed 62 but with arguably better-refined flavors. Like 62 was the experiment and 63 was the "nah just kidding". A return to quintessential Tree House juice, this is dessert in a can. The healthy dessert though. You know, with all the fruit and shit.

Picked-up two cans at the Tree House brewery in Charlton for $5.05/can. My 40th brew from these guys. Solid brew, but does not stand out when compared against other beer bought that day (particularly Doublebanger & Green). I do like a bit better than C62.

Didn't love this curiosity. Looks good as typical TH would. Has a sweeter overall palate on it. Starts sweet and finishes sweet. No dryness to it. I could handle one but that is it. Didn't seem to have the typical TH yeast profile either.
I still give it a 4.1 so even though it's not TH standard it's still pretty good.

Canned on April 5; consumed on May 3, 2019.

A: Poured from the can into a Palm tulip. Body is hazy golden with a small whitish head on top.

S: Tropical fruit - mango, papaya, hint of pineapple.

T: Follows the nose, with a hoppy tropical fruit salad of papaya, pineapple, mango - even coconut - and juicy oranges. Touch of grassy, lemony bitterness at the finish.

M: Juicy, as expected. Flows easily without a "bite" or too-juicy of a feel.

O: Nice drinker, with a bright, easy-drinking all-around feel to it.
