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!

Consumed 8/31/19

A: Golden tangerine - extra hazy, even for a Tree House beer, borderline opaque but not quite egg drop soup - pours with a small, off-white head that fades to a small collar and leaves some lacing

S: Loads of citrus, primarily tangerine and orange juice - floral citrus - splash of lime - herbal and dank hops - slightly woodsy - tropical grass, if that makes sense - bright tropical notes, particularly mango - candied tropical fruit - orange creamsicle - pale malts, any oat aroma is overpowered by the hops

T: Kind of like a tropical fruit cocktail - loads of fresh tangerine and clementine slices - orange juice - floral citrus - lightly grassy hops - herbal and mildly spicy hops, with a dash of dank weed - a variety of other fruits, both tropical and not, peach, apricot, mango, melon pineapple, lime - orange creamsicle - pale malt base with a just a touch of oat flavor - medium-ish bitterness

M: Medium body, silky smooth and a touch chewy thanks to the oats, medium low carbonation

O: Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Tree House's standards are hard to beat (Julius, Green, Haze), but sometimes they realize something that is truly impressive. For my taste, Summer is one of those beers.

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.

I mean you can just say it about every hoppy beer Tree House puts out: they knocked it out of the park with this. From look/smell to taste/feel this is another home run!

16 oz can 07/03/19
Poured into a brandy snifter on my front porch at 12:22 pm
Appears hazy golden white corn/maize with 1/2 inch fizzy white head
Smells of sweet cracker malt and nectarine
Taste is light, but strong fruity hop flavor of sweet fruit like nectarines followed by bitter grapefruit.
Mouthfeel is full bodied.
Overall, very mellow, sweet, and packs a punch.

A great beer but not in my list of favorites from Tree House. Minimal fruit flavor from the hops, more grassy and pine. The nose is biscuit and minimal pine. Great beer but their core line up is much better

Canned 08/07/19 “deep cuts only! no hits!!”

This is stellar. And unique for a NEIIPA. Pours a beautiful hazy bright yellow with a proper head. Aroma and flavor are what you’d expect from TH while being surprisingly different at the same time. Heavy on the dank citrus fruit, at times this almost smells/tastes like marijuana. A bit grassy and barny, this is a true testament to summer and all the season brings. Well done, TH!

Look is typical for a murkbomb, however more head on this one than normal. Head is white with an orange tinge to it. Aroma is tropical, ripe fruits. Pineapple, mango, nectarine, orange, and a slight musty cheese scent. Taste follows, orange, mango, grapefruit, a little pine, and that musty cheese is flashed too. Finish has a great hop bite. Mouthfeel is fuller than medium, soft, almost creamy but not OH creamy. Overall this is excellent but not quite as good as spring.

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 ;)
