Curiosity Sixty SixCuriosity Sixty Six
Notes: For this curious exploration into the art and science of Tree House hoppy beers, we revisited the process from Curiosity Fifty Nine and tried a number of tweaks related to the time, temperature, and volume of the dry hop, as well as the cold conditioning time in attempt to elevate the body alongside a tremendously juicy flavor profile. The result is a standalone beauty, featuring nectar-like qualities with an aroma of fruit stripe gum and a flavor featuring dense notes of peach, pulpy fruit juice, mango, pineapple, and guava. It’s a mini-vacation in a can, and one we believe you will find to be a standout entry in a series that has recently found us making tremendous strides in flavor saturation, distinctiveness, and overall enjoyability.

TREE HOUSE CURIOSITY 66 6/25/19

Recent previous can art has been pleasant. This one of a frog is a bit bizarre.

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Hazy yellow/orange with an inch thick white head which receded rto thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Moderate citrus leaning slightly to orange pith.

t; Follows the nose with light to moderate bitterness. The dry finish gives the impression of being very nicely balanced..

m; Heavier side of medium, very good body and some carbonation tingle.

o; Yes a beaufully balanced NEIPA, extremely drinkable and pleasant..

First time trying any of the curiosity series from tree house

Looks a hazy orange color. Get a a lot of citrus on the nose. On first sip, I got some tropical notes.. maybe some pineapple or mango. Great hop profile with some hop burn towards the back end.

Pours hazy, bright yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is sour orange juice, grapefruit, and bright peach. Medium bodied, bitter, with moderate carbonation. Makes for a solid entry in the series, although nothing I would get again if it were canned. Certainly other Curiosities I prefer.

Cusiosity Sixty Six pours a milky orange color with a frothy and yellowish one finger head that quick dissipates with wispy lacing. The smell is a potpourri of tropical and citrus; pineapple, mango and guava with grapefruit and some melon sweetness, just a hit of hop dankness underneath. Unlike the smell, the taste of the beer is quite hoppy, but fades to with melon sweetness with an orange or tangerine flavor, a bit pithy as well with some citrus rind present.

It's a good looking beer, pouring a dense, milky orange, with a fluffy, almost latte-like head. Smells citrusy, tropical, and a little dank. Taste creamy and juicy, with notes of peach rings, mango, a little citrus in the background. Body is pretty standard Treehouse, somewhat watery but with an effervescent bite. Some may call it thin, but I appreciate the drinkability. May not be my #1 favorite Treehouse, but it's in the upper half of the list.

L - thick, milky haze. Orange mango juice with a bone white head that's looking extra fluffy today.

S - wet tropicalia. Dank, saturated overripe mango and buttery strawberry banana. Peach and guava reminiscent of Lights Out.

T - bright and juicy. Peach rings, lime zest, mango slices, and bubblegum. This is my kind of Tree House. Fruity and lively, but there's an assertive hop bite. Strawberry tartness with a tang-type finish. Dry, fresh bitterness keeps you coming back for more.

F - has a somewhat electric feel with plenty of life. Soft and buoyant with a razor sharp prickliness that beautifully complements the overarching hop bite.

O - reviewing my notes on Fifty Nine, it seems like I'm in agreement with myself! Perhaps a bit more hop saturation and more emphasis on bitterness than juiciness, but "more" is a relative term here; tha juice still reigns supreme. Loving these Curiosities lately, which is a bummer because I'm trying to take it easy on TH these days and not chasing every single release. Just too much to keep up with! I can at least take solace in the fact that their beers are at least getting better with time so I know the next Curiosity I snag will treat me right.

Pours super dense, and hazy. This is tropical fruit explosion, with a mouthful of pineapple and tangerine. Bitterness is super balanced. Just awesome stuff.

Picked up some of these at the brewery. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy pale gold hue with a thin white head that fades to leave creamy lacing and halo.

S - Aromas of slightly spicy pine, some light orange citrus peel and juice. Light almost vegetative hops. Pleasant citrus notes. Little musty.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of bitter citrus peel and grapefruit, there is some hop spiciness that is nice but there isn't much tropical notes going on.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, fluffy. Alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this was a solid enough dipa from Tree House, however, they make exponentially better ones than this. Kind of lackluster.

Serving Type: can

Thanks to rudzud, canned 5/10

Light foamy head with medium retention, little lacing, typical opaque cloudy pale orange-yellow color

Nose big juicy citrus, tropical, papaya, mango, orange, tangerine, little pithy, soft creamy malt, faint earthy pine, doughy wheat

Taste is a little pithy papery mineral like, almost chalky, wheat doughy, little bitter tannin and rind, some citrus, orange tangerine note, a touch tropical mango skin, dry but bitter finish, rind pith and chalky wheat

Mouth is medium bod little creamy, light carb

Overall disappointing, not one of their best, whatever they changed as tried to go on this I feel was not up to standard

16oz can, snifter glass. Cloudy golden body, pulpy with a one finger white head, thick frothy lacing, good retention. Smell is guava, a bit of pineapple, mango, grapefruit. A big tropical fruit explosion. Deliciously appealing nose as is the case for most of their hoppy beers. Caramel underlies with benign intent. Flavour follows- a bit more of the caramel comes out. More of a pineapple and grapefruit flavour comes out of the aromatics. Mildly resinous and herbal spice on the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth medium body and creamy, not abrasive at all, mild bitterness, good carbonation. Smooth and goes down way too easily and quickly. Another yummy one from Tree House.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton. MA
05/10/19
Served in a teku

Impressive appearance. The hazy, pale straw yellow body was topped by a frothy, near finger-tall, off-white crown that quickly dissolved. Copious rings of thick, drippy lacing coated the glass and lasted until the drink’s end.

The aroma was super hoppy and fruity. Honeydew melon notes came through strongest. Perfect amount of sweetness. There was a punchy dankness as well. Citrus notes were also apparent. Nice juicy orange presence.

The flavor profile was really hoppy, bright and clean. Honeydew melon notes were immediately apparent. Big citrus presence as well. Tangy tangerine and clementine notes specifically. White grapefruit appeared in the center and intensified as the beer moved along the palate. Some rind-like pith and bitterness came through on the back end and the finish. Really well balanced.

Excellent soft, frothy mouthfeel. Slightly shy of medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, fairly aggressive effervescence that turned light and fluffy on the palate.

Fantastic lacing. Check. Juicy, fruity, impeccably clean aroma and flavor profile. Check. Pillowy soft mouthfeel. Check. Tree House’s Curiosity Sixty Six is an amalgamation of everything great about this brewery’s hoppy beers. I am very glad I had the opportunity to pick up a few cans of this.
