Notes: We are pleased to welcome Summer to the Tree House family just in time for the season of sunshine, warm weather, beach trips, and hanging out in the backyard! Summer is a heavily oat saturated Double IPA brewed with sunny American hops including Amarillo, Citra, & Magnum. It pours a thick yellow color in the glass, with a billowing, robust head -- a real stunner visually! We taste and smell fresh squeezed orange juice, mango gummies, clementine sorbet, and citrus pith. Summer is a chewy IPA, leaving behind fruity hop oils on the tongue to entice the next sip. Drink it cold and drink it straight from the can for maximum hop enjoyment. This beer has us super excited for a summer of good beer, good friends, and new memories - enjoy!

This one pours a very hazy golden orange color, with a small foamy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like candied mango, pineapple juice, marijuana, pine, and grapefruit pith.

This has such a wonderful softness followed by a nice dry piney and pithy bitterness. It’s super juicy up front, creamy and citrusy, with mango, pineapple, grapefruit, all that.

This is medium bodied, very drinkable, very soft, and very smooth.

Tree House really seems to have come out on the other side of their massive expansion really well. All of the beer that I’ve had lately has been quite tasty.

Yellow brown, almost reddish notes in the body, less yellow than these guys usually lean towards I feel, but still pretty standard. Really nice white lacing on the glass. A bit of sweet raisin and date bread and crackers in the nose, but followed by fig, sticky cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple. Mango on the palate, orange juice, some white bread. Whatever 8.1% may be hiding in this beer is hard to find. Nice hop resin towards the back, creamy feel that comes standard from Treehouse. Great.

All of Treehouse NEIPAS look amazing, have a great mouth feel, decent head , and lacing. This one was a little on the drier side. Very good flavor, but not my favorite Treehouse beer. Still better than most beers that I’ve had on my east coast brewery tour.

Poured into a 13 oz Teku glass canned on 6/6/22. Pours a very attractive hazy yellow with a half finger sticky white head that leaves thin lines of lace with excellent retention. 4.5

Aroma peach, mango, tangerine, cantaloupe, passionfruit, and apricot. 4.5

Taste follows passionfruit, mango, peach, cantaloupe, and apricot. 4.5

Mouthfeel is above average, soft gentle almost creamy carbonation, not sticky or dry, and at 8.1% I can see why they call it Summer because it is a NEDIPA but rather approachable for its heft. 4.5

Overall yes, if you like this style like most of us do, you need to give this one a shot for sure. 4.5

16oz can dated 6/6/22.

Pours cloudy yellow with moderate retention and lacing. Peach, melon, and orange in the nose. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Tropical citrus on the palate with minimal malt or bitterness. Peach, mango, and pear. Finishes juicy but dry.

Canned 7/27/21. Purchased 8/24/21 at Deerfield. Not super fresh.

L: Pours an opaque yellow orange. Short white head thins, but lacing sticks around.

S: Orange and pineapple aromas, but muted. A touch of mango.

T: Follows nose, but more pronounced. The citrus/tropical flavors blend in the middle. Finishes slightly and pleasantly bitter and dry. Alcohol well hidden.

F: Soft mouthfeel. Appropriate carbonation.

O: Well done, but not quite as exceptional as most Tree House DIPAs.

From a 16oz can dated 7/6/21 into a pint glass. Message on can bottom: "Daylight come and me wan' go home"

Pours an opaque light orangish yellow with about one and a half fingers of white head. Decent retention, great lacing.

Smells of major citrus. Oranges, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple. Oranges really dominate though.

Taste follows the nose-oranges, mango and maybe a bit of sherbet? A healthy dose of dank earthiness to round out the sip.

Soft smooth full-bodied mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Slight bitter, acidic aftertaste. REALLY easy to drink for 8.1% abv.

So Tree House didn't knock it out of the park with this one, but it was ripped to the gap off the wall for extra bases. An absolute pleasure to drink.

Poured from a can (06Jul2021) into a Tree House teku

L: pours a completely hazy, lightly glowing yellow orange (opaque, not creamy) with a huge slightly off-white head. Fades slowly, leaving chunky lacing after a couple minutes.

S: very nice tropical fruit aroma full of lighter, ripe fruit notes. First get a nice wave of juicy mango, fresh orange juice, and a bit of tangerine/clementine sweetness. Slightly sweet but not overly so, works well against a bit of citrusy bitterness. As it warms get a bit more of a gummy candy vibe to the fruit. Overall it’s fruit through and through, quite inviting

T: delivers the nose very well, would say those orange juice notes take over but the full suite of fruit is on display. Get a that nice and rich ripe mango, that mix of sweeter clementine/tangerine notes as well. Like on the nose, this more gummy candy note to the fruit comes out more as it’s warmed. There’s a very slight earthy bitterness toward the end, think it works really well against the sweeter flavors up front. Overall the fruit comes nicely in waves, dropping off in the middle and then returning in the medium+ finish

F: medium+ body, medium carbonation. Slightly drying, quite smooth but not overly full/creamy. Body bumped up nicely

O: a very solid DIPA from TH, wouldn’t say it stands out significantly vs. other offerings but delivers very nice orange juice/candied tropical fruit notes. Very drinkable, abv works well. Great beer
