Curiosity SeventyCuriosity Seventy
Notes: For this curious exploration into the art and science of hoppy beers, we blended two different yeast strains - a classically soft and fruity english ale strain, and our house yeast strain - in an attempt to take our well established flavor profiles to new heights of depth, intrigue, and individuality. Paired with heavy doses of new age and classic American hops and a grist containing a careful dose of honey malt, Curiosity Seventy pours an exotic orange in the glass and presents with flavors and aromas of juicy tangerine, mango, orange creamsicle, dried apricot, and distinctive melon overtones. It has a dense body and an easy drinking appeal that is both familiar and foreign in a new and exhilarating way

I drifted where the current chose
5/29/19
Opened on 6/17/19

Muddy and opaque white-haze within the straw golden coloration. Creamy and bubbly white foam head, short but strong. Lacey.

The nose is incredibly sweet with bright citrus fruits, tropicals: mango, kiwi, lime and sugared pineapple. White pepper and freshly crushed hop cones along with sweet, bready and dark fruity yeast combo effect brings it above and beyond.

The fruity, sweet and tropical punch style flavors might be the most complex, heady, deep and intricate I've experienced. Distinct fruits: mango, pineapple, starf ruit, cantelope...and beyond that! The English yeast might be adding a level of fruitiness that I've never had previously.

The malt seems to be like a soggy white bread, honey soaked. A laid-back, relaxed and smooth mouth feel makes it feel light, but full...dig?

Fruit flavor explosion! Nuclear style. I feel like this falls into an NEIPA style.

Thanks to rudzud for grabbing this, canned 5/29/19
Pours a decent fizzy bubbly head that fades at a med pace, very little lacing, very cloudy hazy pale blond opaque color

Nose typical Tree House, loads of citrus and some tropical fruit juice, tangerine, orange, orange cream, mango, little zest juicy citrus and a little pith, soft creamy base malt with a little dough, light stone fruit and canteloupe as it warms

Taste more of the same, doughy pithy malt, big citrus again, tangerine, orange cream, mango sorbet, light chalky mineral base though, a little generic tropical and some melon, apricot stone fruit as well, big sherbet and juicy fruit, pithy, light bitterness and very little alcohol, drier finish with lingering rind and citrus

Mouth is med bod, juicy creamy, medium carb

Overall nothing special, typical Tree House, a little chalky mineral base malt, good fruit, juicy, enjoyable, but they almost all seem the same.

Direct from the brewery, tall can dated 5/29/19.

Great looking juiced/hazed up pour, leaves nice looking fine sheeting.

Pungent, ripe tropical fruit nose, with pineapple, melon, mango and soft lemon/lime.

Delicious creation, nose follows through onto the palate....ripe, tropical fruits abounding and astounding....world class NEDIPA...go get some and enjoy....

Picked up a four pack of this at the brewery.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy milkshake really pale gold hue with a fat creamy two finger white head that faded slowly to leave thick lacing and a dense blanket.

S - Aromas of tropical pineapples, little bit of melon, faint floral notes, nice earthy notes. There are some good almost gummy peach candies as well on the nose. Very pleasant and aromatic.

T - Taste is really muted. Quite bitter citrus rind and pith. Fair amount of floral hops and a little melon. Not nearly as much pineapple or peach as was in the taste. The tropical notes are much more muted with lingering earthy, spicy, bitterness.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, thick, little creamy. Alcohol hidden very nicely.

O - Overall this had all sorts of promise. Stellar appearance and a really nice nose, however, the taste really fell short from that. Still a good beer but could have definitely been better.

Serving Type: Can

4.59/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque golden orange color with a finger of eggshell white head. The head hangs around for a bit, leaving a beautiful crown of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma. Hnnnngh. Tons and tons of fresh berries, pineapple, melon, and orange cream. The back end is faintly earthy and spicy. Wonderfully balanced aroma.

The flavor brings quite a bit of apricot and fresh oranges, as well as plenty of mangoes, honeydew melon, and berries. The honey malt is present on the back before a wave of pine and earthy spice.

The feel is medium-full bodied with soft carbonation. Thick and chewy and creamy as hell. Also incredibly soft and drinkable. The alcohol is nigh undetectable.

Overall, what the hell. I literally cannot stop sucking Tree House's proverbial wang. They've got the Curiosity series on lockdown right now and I can't wait to see how it evolves their regular offerings. This one is absolutely one of the best I've had.
