Perfect StormPerfect Storm
Notes: Perfect Storm is an absurdly hopped rendition of Super Typhoon; the most kingly and intense of our weather series! Featuring boatloads of Simcoe & Citra hops, perfect storm pours a glowing orange in the glass and carries flavors and aromas of earthy citrus, cantaloupe, papaya, and strawberry banana. Perfect Storm’s hop leanings are more intense and resinous, with tongue coating fruity hop oils and a firm, lingering bitterness. This one will evolve beautifully in the can with time and reveal layers of additional complexity through cold conditioning. Enjoy!

Pours about like they all do. Lovely pale gold haze with fluffy cream head that hangs out throughout. Stone fruit, citrus, light pineyness to the point it feels weird to describe it that way. Flavor follows. Big, soft, fruity. There is a small bite to it, but overall apricot and tangerine. Soft is par for the course (which will soon be a lame pun once TH opens their golf course). A very enjoyable, very tasty IIPA. Soft, round, well-layered fruity hop character.

Cloudy orange with two fat fingers of rocky, antique white head. Great retention and thick meringue-like lacing.

Orange, white pepper and hints of cantaloupe, cat pee, grapefruit and pine.

Much more melon-forward taste. Creamy and peppery.

Creamy feeling with tight carbonation.

Very tasty.

From a 16oz can dated 11/22/21 into a tulip. Can message: "The tide is rising"

Pours an opaque light orangish yellow with about two fingers of white head. Outstanding retention and lacing.

Smells of oranges, apples, pineapple and a hint of citrus peel. On the pour I got a whiff of bubble gum.

Taste follows, citrus and tropical fruit flavors with a piney bitter kick on the swallow.

Quite easy drinking. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Full-bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Bitter aftertaste.

Yeah, so, this is right in my wheelhouse. An absolute beauty of a beer.

Sweet tropical hoppy, slightly malty, and orange citrus nose on this one! Taste follows with a orange citrus and tropical hoppy-dank bitter finish. As it warms, the dank bitterness lingers on the back of the throat for a bit. This is tasty! And with that Tree House softness makes this a winner! Good stuff!

Poured out of a can at fridge temp. Pours a gorgeous murky orange with white head. Lacing sticks around for quite a while. Can't wait for this one!

Nose: Citrus peel is the first note for me. Dank. Tropical fruit. Papaya, watermelon, pineapple. Pine. Moist and freshly cut grass. The tropical notes continue to evolve over a few minutes. Mango and peaches come through. Really lovely. I just love sitting here smelling this one.

Taste: Sweet candy and tropical fruit immediately. Wow. Really sweet watermelon, passion fruit, Jelly Belly, mandarin oranges, and green apples. There is a slip hop bitterness on the aftertaste, but this is definitely a tropical fruit bomb. Very tasty and incredibly easy to drink. The ABV is completely hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall, this is outstanding. I will be sad when the glass is empty! Thanks, Roguer!

Thanks Roguer!
A supremely hazy muted gold with a fluffy white head that pushes a solid two fingers high. Great retention, plenty of lacing.
Nose grabs my focus instantly. I mean, the pop of the can was like a starter pistol initiating the race between the tropical and the citrus. The citrus was the strongest starter, but the nose abounds with orange, grapefruit, mango, papaya, and passionfruit.
Flavor has even more to dive into. Definitely citrus: grapefruit, orange zest, and tangerine. Tropical: mango, pineapple, papaya, and guava. Also showing up, some melon notes: cantaloupe. Some earthy and peppery herbal notes peak in as well.
Fluff my pillow! Love this mouthfeel. Medium feel, but oh so fluffy. Mild bitter finish.
Overall, I wish I lived near by.

Pours a super hazy orange yellow color with a thick and tall white colored head that laces the glass on the way down. Smells of sweet toasted malts and then a huge floral/citrus/melon hop aroma. Tastes of floral and citrus and melon hop flavors with a bit of a toasted malt backing. Thick, smooth, perfect amount of carbonation. Treehouse does it again!

16 ounce can in a curvy beer glass.

Dull hazy finish on a yellow orange coloring. Bright white cap, 1-plus F, lots of lacing.

Starts with strong grapefruit aroma. Then there’s a mix of stone, tropical, and citrus. Some mango and melon.

Grapefruit and orange, pineapple and melon.

It’s another glass of juice amped up with alcohol. Resinous and bitter.

It reminds me of a screwdriver on a mid-morning flight.

Full two finger head, surface pocked by many larger bubbles beyond the pour point, bright white, very credible retention, lacing more big and random splotches than streaks. Full haze to the yellow liquid, impenetrable. Nose focused on juicy grapefruit, blood orange citrus and a standard array of tropical fruits, the dankness is linear and blows through rather than stick around, some pretzel salt to peppercorns rounds it out, light resiny quality. Medium-bodied, not too heavy and particularly moves agilely towards the finish. Carbonation is somewhat weak. Overall, sweet with a fluffy mouth texture. Mango, papaya, passion fruit to nectarine and peach. The pink grapefruit loses some intensity here. In turn you get more breadiness and a vague honeyed aspect. No one component is sticking out with a "look at me" attitude. Think of it as a "comfort beer" rather than something to really engage your brain over. (Canned 7/27/21)

Many thanks to PhineasMcClintock for the can.

A - Pours an extremely hazy dark golden orange that's borderline opaque. Lacing is sticky and bright white clinging to the sides of the glass.

S - Juicy citrus presence that jumps out of the glass with citrus, mango, papaya, and resiny apricot.

T - Resiny citrus and apricot lead the charge followed with mango, lime, mango, papaya, passion fruit, and ends on the sweeter side. Nice lingering citrus resin on the palate coats the mouth.

M - Big body that's pillowy soft and slightly chewy.

O - Really enjoying the citrus fruitiness of this beer. Recommended.

Hazy golden color with white cap and lacing.

Strong, deep hop aroma that strikes me as mostly herbal with a citrus backbone.

Taste is hop forward with an emphasis on the hops which further carry the herbal theme. Citrus is a little less apparent than in the nose. I don't detect much malt but the other flavors mentioned are cleen, strong and well balanced. Finishes dry with a hint of hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Full velvety texture with balancing carbonation.

Close to Nirvana for the NEIPA fan.

Another winner! Obviously I am not a brewer because I don’t understand how all those ingredients can go into a beer and come out so beautifully! What the brewer tries to give me for his/her ideas of what the goal is a joy to try. I am a huge Hill Farmstead fan as well as a TH fan. Two of the best breweries in the world and I am lucky enough to get to each brewery once or twice a year! Lucky me!
