Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Notes: Rotating availibility. 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 might be one of my favorites from them.
Big orange 1 finger head. Head always sticks around just a bit.
Flavor and smell are orange sorbet with a touch of mango. Mouthfeel is like ice cream. So good.
I savored this beer for 45 minutes. Just an explosion of fruit. Unlike anything I've had.

Overall excellent Treehoouse beer. Great nose with scents of tropical fruits and great taste with good IPA flavor but limited bitterness. Kudos on the can art - beautiful as well.

L - pours a dull, murky shade of orange brown. Thick haze, per usual. Spotty, but sticky lacing.

S - on the side for Tree House. Pungent aromatics of pineapple, mango, papaya, peach, and vanilla. Sweet and creamy with a kiss of lime in the back end. Tropical.

T - zesty citrus rind without the bitter bite. I mean, it's still there, but we've got more focus on the grainy, greener side of tangerine, grapefruit, and orange. At the same time, plenty of juice featuring peach cocktail juice, mango, lime Italian ice, and maybe even some strawberry twang. Reminds me of a bigger, badder Lights Out. Finishes strong with dry floral bitterness.

F - mealy and grainy. Many rind characteristics pepper the taste buds, complemented by smooth, consistent heft and fullness. Edges more toward sipper than crusher. Not exactly a summer beer?

O - fantastic range at play here. Hits all the notes from bitter to zesty to juicy to sweet to dry. There's a little something here for everybody which results in a good brewing showcase.

Canned 07/03/19, it’s really juicy tasting with loads of tropical fruits like mango, tangerine, pineapple, orange juice, lemon zest, red grapefruit, graham cracker, faint caramel, biscuit, sweet malt, light peppery spices, tea leaf, some floral notes and then more citrus flavors. It’s super smooth and the mild carbonation helps this well balanced brew go down easy. The ABV is very well hidden behind the complex citrus flavors.

The first can I opened the worst TH I've ever had. Smells of bad plastic, taste follows. Can date 7/3

Second can is great! A little disappointed about pouring $5 down the drain but I won't let it sway me too much.
A little more mild in flavor than a Haze or some of their other dIPA offerings but still quite lovely. Strongly recommend buying. Maybe two cans just to be safe ;)

Consistently opaque maize with a tall white foam head settling to a persistent creamy blanket leaving bubbly chunks of lace.

Peachy, fluffy, and juicy, this beer finds what so many breweries have lost in the pursuit of MOAR.

Right off the jump, floral and juicy aromas of peach jump out of the glass and this translates well on the palate, with an added mild green hop spiciness that's kind of like mango, paired with some soft cracker. The moderate body is floating on clouds and finishes softly semi-dry.

This is one of the most dialed in beers I've had by Tree House in a long time and it's absolutely delicious. After all this time and especially after such a large scale up, that's a huge achievement. The description on the back of the can does it plenty of justice, but I like my review more :P ;)

After a 2 hour wait in line on 7/3/19 finally made it to the register. Had all of the other beers except for summer and went back and forth on how many to buy. Bottom line I should have bought more.

The pour was perfect treehouse and the look was the cloudy golden haze I was expecting. The smell is of fruit ripeness and smelled just like the inside of the brewery (kept me going back to figure out which fruit - no go but tropical) The taste, delish and will take this over a Pina colada lying on a beach hammock any day. The feel in the mouth is chewy and lingering. Perfect for “summer”.

From a 16oz can, dated 06/20/19... living’s easy. Served in a Foam-branded cervoise.

Pours a dull and opaque, milky grapefruit juice color with a scant half-finger of creamy head. Retention’s pretty meh, leaving a fizzy little cap and collar and a thin but stickily persistant curtain of lacing.

Aroma is disappointingly faint, some sort of oily citrus peel and rubbing alcohol.

Taste is somewhat in line with the nose but with the volume turned up. The first thing I notice is how boozy it tastes, a sort of raw, grainy vodka-like presence which is very un-Tree House-like. Orange or tangerine, the oily peel and dense, composty pulp and a thick, almost cloying, flowery of perfumy character with a slight sour oats aftertaste.

Feel is thick and doughy, medium-hefty bodied with fine, almost aggressive carbonation. There’s a scratchy burning sensation in my throat and an urge to pick imaginary bits of pulp out of my teeth.

Overall, this is not one of my favorites but certainly not undrinkable. I found it to be not entirely unlike drinking a carton of OJ that’s been in the fridge too long.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden orange hue with a thin white head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Big aromas of citrus peel and orange juice, nice pithy notes as well as flashes of tropical notes. Little yeasty on the finish. Decent grapefruit as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of greener hops, nice slight bitterness. There are real nice citrus notes and zest, loads of tropical notes. Really good softer finish.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, fluffy, alcohol hidden nicely.

O - Overall this was a very solid dipa with lovely fruity hop notes, nice citrus zest. Little chalky/green on the taste though.

Serving Type: can

Pours hazy, orange gold in color with one inch head. Taste is peach smoothie, orange, and mango. Heavy bodied, slightly bitter with moderate carbonation. Body is perfect, nice and heavy. Super tasty summery ipa. Glad I bought several.
