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!

Picked-up four cans at the Tree House Brewery in Charlton for about five dollars per can. No canned-on date, but I believe that this is brand new. This is excellent, one of TH's best.

Over hopped Super Typhoon. Sign me up. Had this on tap at the brewery and that was a glorious 12oz of heaven. Supremely balanced, intense stone fruit and full mouth feel make this a must drink IPA.

Picked up some cans of this at the brewery. Canned on 7/19/19.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy golden sunshine hue with a big, creamy two finger white head that fades to leave sticky side lacing and a dense, creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of bright, zesty citrus along with flashes of ripe strawberries. Little pithy and bitter along with flashes of some earthy tropical fruits. Very light malt sweetness. No discernible alcohol.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Big bright citrus more oily peel than juice oddly enough. Decent earthy notes along with lemon. The strawberries come and go in this before being slammed by intense resinous hops. There are some good danker tropical fruit notes, however, the first few sips resulted in a rather big flash of alcohol.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, creamy, medium bodied. It's good but I get flashes of alcohol throughout.

O - Overall this is good, however, the unexpected flashes of alcohol overshadowed the pleasant almost fruit salad like flavour. The bitterness is pleasant on the finish though.

16 oz. can. Murky orange. Smells of tropical fruit and orange creamsicle. Tastes of orange and tropical fruits. Slightly sweet malt. Oaty and earthy behind it. Bitter finish. Medium heavy. Pretty dry for a Tree House DIPA, but it has a long earthy yeast back end. I kinda like it, but not sure what I'd think if i had a whole can to myself.

Consumed 8/25/20

Golden yellow-orange, hazy and murky, pours with a small off-white head that fades quickly, leaves some streaks of lacing
Massively hoppy and actually pretty aggressive, with a load of citrus, clementine, orange, ruby red grapefruit, lime, tropical notes, melon, underripe peach, passion fruit, strawberries and bananas (the official description suggested strawberry banana and now I'm thinking about it), herbal notes, green hops, woodsy and earthy notes, resinous pine, moderate and lingering bitterness, chewy pale malts, light sweetness
Medium body, smooth and chewy, low carbonation

Super Typhoon really blew me away (a weather pun, get it lololol), but while I really like Perfect Storm, it is not a dramatic iteration of something already so good. Super Typhoon and Perfect Storm are somewhat unique in the Tree House lineup because they are actually pretty bitter, and that is a good thing. Perfect Storm is a more aggressive Super Typhoon, and I would love to try both side by side.

Poured into a 16 oz Bell’s Hopslam glass, canned on 9/12/19. Pours a very hazy orange yellow with a finger plus sticky white head that leaves a thick ring of lace with amazing retention. 5

Smell is tangerine, papaya, honeydew, pineapple, and just a whiff of grapefruit. 4.5

Taste follows a bunch of melon, tangerine, pineapple, papaya, guava, and hints of grapefruit in the bold yet balanced finish. 4.5

Mouthfeel is bigger than most, soft gentle carbonation, sticky not dry, and at 8% easy sipping, but packed with flavor. 5

Overall again this Brewery is so hyped, but so damn good it is scary.

Sweet, juicy and dank. Dry finish but lingering flavors on the tongue, smooth bitterness. IMO best IPA/DIPA from the Charlton location. Cheers!
