Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For this curious exploration into the art and science of hoppy beers, we utilized all Galaxy hops in a double IPA for the first time paired with our singular house yeast. It is buoyed by a simple grist of pale malt and an appreciable amount of oats! The result of utilizing a substantial amount of Galaxy in both the kettle and dry hop, Sixty Five pours a dense yellow color in the glass with a frothy, creamy head. We taste and smell super intense notes of under ripe pineapple, lychee, earthy citrus, key lime, and apricot. A truly unique expression of Galaxy and one that will reward the senses for many weeks to come. Six years of curiosity and we are more surprised and delighted than ever!

Thick, creamy, milky yellow, with a frothy, fluffy head. Really as hazy as it gets; it's completely opaque. Smells sweet, like a ripe orange and vanilla ice cream, but with some dank, grassy notes underneath. Tastes of grapefruit, stone fruit, lime, and ends on a big biting note of hoppy bitterness. Body is smooth, creamy, and pillowy (thank you oats!). A very tasty, very well-executed beer.

Curiosity 65 pours a dense and dull light, custard yellow with a bold, creamy and complex 1-finger head that lingers with excellent retention. The smell is an explosion of tropical and citrus include orange, tangerine, pineapple, papaya, guava, mango and passion fruit with a slight hint of pine. Creamy mouthfeel with a big fruit flavor on the palette that goes along with the nose, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, the hops come in a bit late, but linger through a slightly bitter finish.

poured from a 16oz can into a TG Teku glass. pours a milky, hazy golden yellow. bright white head. leaves a lacing of foam around the glass as the beer is consumed. smell is tropical fruit, dank hops and resin. taste is similar. dank and fruity with just the slightest hint of bitterness. silky, creamy smooth mouthfeel. this is one of the better curiosities i’ve had in a while.

L - pours a summery banana shade of yellow. Thick, milky, unrelenting haze with sticky lacing that leaves rings even as it settles. No sips yet.

S - hearty, grainy melon and yeasty acidity. Faint onion zest and juicy fruit. Sticky and dank, dripping with oily hop aromas.

T - woof, quite a potent punch of hoppiness. It's bitter, but not terribly so. The acidity mixes with tangy hop saturation to bring forward dank, yet bright flavors of honeydew, pineapple, and lime. Leaves your lips watering in the same way a hot pepper would. Finish is far more acidic than the TH par. Mild throat burn, but the flavor keeps me coming back.

F - as if Tree House beers didn't feel good enough, let's toss some oats into the mix, yeah? Dense and foamy with velvet cream. Many people toss around "pillowy", but this might just be deserving of such a descriptor.

O - this one's got some serious oomph behind it. Aggressive by TH standards, but the mouthfeel dulls any sharp edges and wraps up this beer neatly with a nice little bow slapped on that bad boy. Wholesome and substantial, we've got a meal in a can. The oats do this beer wonders and I hope we see more in this vein from Tree House.

Thanks to rudzud, canned yesterday
Nose foamy creamy head with medium retention, decent lacing, cloudy hazy murky update pale orange color

Nose explodes, tons of citrus and some tropical, so much juicy citrus, tangerine, orange, big mango, papaya, guava, light gristy doughy malt

Taste big hops again, juicy citrus, orange, tangerine, mango puree, some citrus tangerine mango sherbet, light doughy wheat malt and mineral salt left but not papery pulp, mild bitterness, pithy, finishes spicy hop that gets a little distracting

Mouth is creamy medium bodied, little soft juicy, medium small bubbly carb

Overall quite good but hops gets a bit spicy bitter on the finish

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy milkshake orange hue with a creamy thin blanket that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Big aromas of bright tropical notes, big passion fruit and guava. Loads of oranges as well along with light malts. Super bright and aromatic.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of pithy fruit. Big tropical notes, good juice, loads of tropical and stone fruit.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, lightly fluffy. Quite nice.

O - Overall this was a very solid dipa. Great tropical fruit notes and bright citrus. Quite nice.
