Notes: Super Treat is a riff on Treat utilizing even larger kettle and dry hop additions applied to a richer, denser base beer than Treat. It is intended to coax sweet hop candy flavors from a blend of citrus forward American hops paired with our house yeast. Saturated flavors of orange starburst, sweet tangerine, lychee, and unfiltered fresh squeezed orange juice play nicely with a gently carbonated body lending to a beer that is intensely enjoyable and eminently drinkable. Our house yeast provides juicy fruit gum and melon overtones throughout. It’s a Super Treat, indeed!

Can courtesy of SierraNevallagash.
Hazy OJ. Nice fluffy head. great retention & lacing.
Smells like a balance of tropical fruit and citrus. Leaning more towards sweet.
Tastes like a full fruit salad of hop flavor. The hop bitterness is there but balanced perfectly with the tropical sweeter flavors. I can’t speak to the “lychee” advertised because I don’t know wtf that is.
mouthfeel: Soft, pillowy, juicy. Medium to low carb.
No alcohol presence.
Overall: definitely oranges and sweet dominant. Enjoyable. Pretty high undetectable abv Too.

This is certainly a great beer, but it might be my least favorite IPA from Tree House. It's very bitter—even for my very bitter tastes—and, though it looks like the usual nectar-like TH IPAs, it seems like maybe it's an escapee from the west coast. I'm not getting the candy-like sweetness advertised on the can and I don't feel like the fruit offsets the bitter taste.

Not talked about amongst their 100-pointers, but honetly, side-by-side with things like Juice Machine, it totally holds it own. A stunning true yellow haze unlike the former's darker orange, there's a super pleasing combo of sight and taste that could make this a go-to all summer long.

Soft pale yellow body, turbid and opaque; stupendously dense and creamy white head, rocky and sculpted. Rich aroma of orange and nectarine; a bit lemon; deliciously sweet. Excellent balance of flavors; bread crust base with a muted citrus presence; lemon zest and orange rind; very pleasant bitterness with a touch of alcohol. Heavy body; dense and creamy body; semi-sweet throughout yet with some boozy heat that yields a semi-dry finish at the end.

It beers like this keep popping up, I may drink 'em more often. I still prefer the cleaner, traditional zip of a good west coast styled IPA or even the maltier English style, but when an outstanding example of the NEIPA style rolls around, like this, well, you just gotta have it...

Poured a beautiful 2 inch thick head. The mouth feel and creamy thickness stick out in this DIPA from Treehouse. The taste of sweet candy intensified as the beer matured in the glass. Very drinkable 8.3 percent. They describe starburst and I got skittles. Minute difference for such a good beer. Well done.

Poured into a 16 oz tulip glass canned on 4/14/20. Pours a very hazy yellow with a finger plus sticky white head that leaves thin streaks of lace as it slowly settles, gorgeous for the style. 5

Smell is hard mandarin orange candy, apricot, pineapple, peach, and ripe melon unique and excellent. 4.25

Taste follows mandarin orange, pineapple, peach, cantaloupe, and apricot very little bitterness and huge flavor. 4.5

Mouthfeel is bigger than average for sure, sticky not dry, soft gentle NEDIPA feel, and at 8.3% ABV crazy drinkable. 4.75

Overall this is another winner from these guys. So rare that they disappoint and I always go in with the highest expectations. Thanks TheIPAHunter for this awesome can. 4.5

Canned on 2/1420, consumed on 3/27/20.

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass, the body is golden-yellow with a 1-finger foamy white head. Becomes more yellowish when backlit, more golden in dimmer light.

S: My sense of smell is still working, thankfully (in this COVID-19 era), and I get a very nice nose full of sweeter, fruity hops: citrusy grapefruit, tangerines, and tropical fruit. Not terribly strong, but nice.

T: Follows the nose, with tropical fruit (papaya, melon, limes), a touch of grapefruit, a lot of oranges, orange peel and creamsicle. Real nice flavors here. Touch of heat in the belly (I do have an empty stomach).

M: Nice TreeHouse juicy and creamy feel to this one.

O: Very good. I like this hop profile, and the nice TH feel. A Super Treat for my birthday!

Pours yellow thick hazy. 1 finger white head.
Smell is all sorts of tropical fruits with lychee and cantaloupe. Creamy.
Flavor follows. A lot of tree house beers are starting to Taste the same. I’m somewhat ok with that because you know what you are going to get but it also is hard to split the flavors apart. This definitely has the tree house yeast flavor. If that is what you want this beer nails it. I’ll be honest that is what I want so I do t care.

Canned 12 days ago.

L -- Hazy golden straw body with 1.5 fingers of dense white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and lacing
S -- Orange creamsicle, tropical fruit candy, lychee
T -- Largely follows the nose. The amped up hop bill offsets the malty sweetness much more than regular Treat
F -- Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Soft and fluffy as usual

T.F: Just like it smells. Light grain bill with big citrusy hops. Orange and tangerine... tropicals and rind. Some sweetness with modest hop bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel and carbonation. Medium bodied... ABV well hidden. More tropicals and citrus at the finish.

O: Another outstanding Tree House IPA. Great flavor... well crafted.

Super Treat pours an inviting honey orange color with a loose knit 1-finger head lingers. The smell is bursting with intense, sweet aromas of candied orange and tangerine with mild earthiness and a hop forward presence. The taste is big and juicy, orange and tangerine with pineapple and candied fruits, mango being very distinct. A light creaminess over the palette, a true super treat to drink!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very cloudy gold color with an off-white soapy 1 finger head leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma is intoxicating, not too sweet but bright with peach and tangerine notes. This is just awesome and a good omen of things to come.

The taste is just as intense with a dominant peach hop flavor IMO, though others here do not say so. Nothing on the label says it is the peach adjunct version. TH says lychee is in the profile but I'm not familiar with it. There is certainly a citrus there too, on the sweeter side, and i could be convinced of orange. The finish is a bit earthy and loses the charm of the hop flavor, so a small knock there.

Mouthfeel.is soft, thick and creamy. This has got some serious substance to it. Carbonation is light and bitterness not really present. There is zero alcohol burn despite being 8.3%. Bravo.

This is a stupendous flavor in a NEIPA. It is not so much on the sweet orange scale as in the stonefruit range but straddles the two sides judiciously. It is a must have

Well, to be honest: this one is a treat. This one is like Raul when he was a good boy at the Dr’s office - lollipop on the way out. Yep! I mean, really, this beer is simply delicious. It hits on all levels like Pete Rose swinging a Louisville Slugger. It’s ripe, it’s fresh, it’s delectable...

Yeah, I think I’m ok with that.

Peace!

Pours an orange hazy. There's an initial bouquet of tangerine on the nose but that quickly fades. There's mango papaya and ample softness. I get less of the estery TH house yeast character. I think that this might be my last time I go out of my way to visit TH. This is good, but not worth going out of the way for. It's not as distinct either.

Poured from a 16oz glass into a teku glass.

L- Yellow in color, completely opaque/turbid (as expected) with a fluffy white head. looks amazing.

S- tons of fruity hops, giving up notes of orange sherbert, papaya, mango-- the usual tropical fruit suspects. excellent.

T- they really nailed down the "hop candy" concept perfectly. the sweet malt backbone blends perfectly with the new American hops. lots of candy-like citrus flavors like yellow starburst, orange sorbet, a little mango. near perfect execution of what they were going for.

F- slightly dry finish, with lingering malt sweetness and hop fruitness.

O- as if you'd think Tree House couldn't improve any more, they release this beast. it's just as good, if not better than KJ, VG, AAlter Ego, etc...highly recommended!

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
10/02/19
Served in a teku

Cloudy, bright straw yellow appearance. The turbid looking body was topped by a fluffy, two-finger tall, bone white crown that slowly dropped to a thin film. A thick ring of drippy, craggily lacing stuck along the top portion of the glass.

The aroma was juicy and bright but somewhat nondescript initially. Honeydew melon notes came through strongest. Lots of citrus as well. Freshly squeezed orange juice was most apparent. As the beer sat, the honeydew intensified. Later, candied citrus notes took over. Really sweet and fragrant.

The flavor mimicked the nose to a T. Excellent balance of honeydew melon and juicy citrus notes. Loads of freshly squeezed orange juice on the front end. Good dose of tangy tangerine and clementine as well. Somewhat tart, wheaty and lemony in the center. Grapefruit came through on the back end. Pithy, bitter, grapefruit rind-like notes rounded out the finish. With time, the bitterness mellowed substantially and the candied citrus peel notes really intensified.

Terrific creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, fairly zippy effervescence that turned frothy and slick on the palate.

Super Treat is a really enjoyable Tree House double IPA that mostly follows the brewery’s “formula,” though perhaps drinks a bit sweeter than most of their other offerings. Trick or treat? I will take the Super Treat.

Canned 10-2, purchased 10-12, consumed 10-20. Pours a typical gorgeous hazy yellow/orange. Aroma and flavor feature tropical fruit, citrus, a hint of dank pine, and...onion, but in a good way. Very little bitterness. Smooth, creamy, pillowy mouthfeel. A fantastic NEIPA, this is indeed a super treat to drink.

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is robust, juicy and deep. Intense aromas of citrus, orange juice, papaya, mango and a soft booziness that tickles the nose. Really nice. Beer opens juicy and sweet. I get orange juice, clementine, mango, cane sugar and vanilla. Some bright citrus hop resin in the middle with a sweet, almost syrupy finish. Intense. This is pretty nice. Body is medium with ample moderate carbonation. Smooth and soft on the palate and goes down muted with a lingering finish. Solid.

Excellent beer. This one's worth searching for.

16oz. can served in a tulip. Canned 10/02/19. Pours a dull orange hue the approximate color and clarity of orange juice. Head is half an inch, bright white and fluffy. Head eventually dissipates into a consistent skim that coalesces into a frothy band around the shoulders. Delicate swaths of lacing are revealed on the serving side of the glass. Nose is quite nice - light, candied citrus esters with trace of tropical fruit, melon and herbal notes nicely intermingled. Taste consistent with nose with a sugar sweet pop in the middle. Finishes with some tangerine notes at the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a mild, even carbonation and a light acidity. Overall, tasty and nicely crafted with a well-hidden abv.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pint can - dated 08/08/19 - poured into a small white wine stem at 46F.

Pours an ultra-hazy, one notch away from milky bright sunny yellow colour, topped with nearly 3 fingers of pillowy white head, which slowly recedes, leaving substantial chains of lacing behind. Very photogenic beer.

Nose: Deliciously sweet, candied tropical fruit, and a healthy dose of citrus. Mandarin orange, pineapple, guava, melon, kumquat, nectarine, mango, papaya, lychee, and a slightly dank, slightly green, purely hoppy note as well, which reminds me of the wet, lush forests of the Pacific Northwest. Sweet, hoppy, succulent, and juicy.

Palate: The beer greets the palate with a clean malty sweetness. Relatively neutral in flavour, as the hops sort of mask any grainy or malty flavours, though the sweetness remains to compliment the hops. Perhaps a little bit of honey. Unlike the original Treat (which I regard as the best hoppy beer I have ever had), Super Treat seems to possess a little bit of a dank, Simcoe-like note, detectable in both the aroma and the flavour. This is a dominant note that lasts from start to finish. In addition, there are also flavours of ripe melon, lychee, papaya, peach, nectarine, mango, and tangy, acidic pineapple. A very light degree of hop burn, which really emphasizes the pineapple note. The juicy, tropical flavours seem to fade during the finish, ending with the spotlight on that dank, Simcoe-like note, along with some dry, resinous hop oils. Very little bitterness.

Mouthfeel/Body: It's actually quite surprising. Many offerings in the Tree House lineup tend to be unbelievably creamy, rich, soft, and pillowy. Especially the bigger renditions of classic beers. This, on the other hand, seems to lack that ultra-creamy milkshake texture. However, this is not a downfall. This beers sweetness, paired with it's rather large ABV doesn't exactly beg for a rich, decadent body. The lighter body really suits this, and adds an element of crispness, which really enhances its drinkability. It's not thin or small by any means. 8.3% wouldn't really hide itself that well anyway - but it isn't thick or creamy, and with some help from the lively effervescence and tangy hop acidity, the beer actually drinks rather easily,

Overall: It's hard to beat a beer like Treat. Some (I) may say it's impossible. Super Treat actually bears little resemblance to the original beer. It's not quite as fruity, or insanely aromatic as Treat, and the dank notes are definitely something unique to this one. However, it's still a fantastic hoppy beer that displays the very craftsmanship that Tree House has come to be known for.

This was just another amazing IPA from my favorite IPA brewery, Tree House. Didn’t think they could get much better than their Green and Julius series but this one just knocked my socks off. Canned date 8/7/19. Looks incredible, as always - creamy hazy yellow-orange color with fluffy white head and sheets of lingering lacing. Fantastic. Smells of fresh ripe melon, pineapple, guava, mango, papaya, passionfruit, orange and lemon. Also some malt, vanilla, bread, floral and herbal hops. Aromas were fresh and hoppy and just so fragrant. Taste follows the nose, absolutely wonderful juiciness and creaminess that was hard to beat. Perfect balance between the slightly bitter hoppiness and the sweeter malt backbone that always mellows out Tree House’s IPAs. Can’t detect the well hidden higher ABV. Smooth, creamy, sticky mouthfeel that coats the palate. Great feel and perfect amount of carbonation. Truly one of my favorite beers from them and one of my favorite imperial IPAs.

16 oz. can. Murky light orange body. Smells of sweet orange, tangerine, sweet tropical fruits, and some acidic fruits, like passionfruit. Tastes of zippy acidic fruit for a brief moment, then hefty sweet pale malt and some tropical fruit hops take over. Makes it quite sweet. Medium heavy. I had half a can and it tasted fine, but would have been too sweet to drink a full can.
