Curiosity Seventy OneCuriosity Seventy One
Notes: For this curious exploration into the art and science of hoppy beers, we experimented with stressing our yeast in new and untrialled ways to coax exclusive and intriguing fruit esters from fermentation. The result, paired with massive doses of potent American Hops, is a hugely aromatic beer with a soft flavor profile featuring singular notes of honeydew melon, ripe tropical fruit, a hint of yellow raspberry, and sweet overripe pineapple. A simple, natural effervescence provides the signature fluffy mouthfeel we have come to know and love from Tree House. Our Curiosity Series, now over six years in the making, has provided us with a palette to take big chances that help us grow and evolve our core offerings. Our most recent efforts have invigorated us like never before to grow, evolve, and push the cutting edge of fermentation and brewing process - Enjoy!

On tap at Tree House

In my top 20 IPAs.

There is a perfect balance between the characteristics of malt, hop, and yeast. There is intense fruit and rough dough in the nose. The flavor is up front bitter with orange peel, melon, and undercooked biscuit. Great beer worth seeking out.

16 oz can fresh (1 can limit)
This was a tropical fruit bomb, orange and turbid with a white foamy head.
It was smooth and delicious, no bitterness at all.
It is a shame on one hand I only got one, but I am sure glad I got to try it.

So glad I maxed out on the allotment of this; on a day you could also get VH, this one overshadows what has always been my favorite DIPA. Like many of the beers in their lineup, this one doesn't disappoint with its fruity forward flavor.

TREE HOUSE CURIOSITY 71 7/12/19

Acquired at the brewery Thursday.

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Nearly opaque orange with a half inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Mild light tropical fruit cup

t: Fruity bitterness with considerable hop bitterness, dry finish with bitterness lingering on the tongue. ABV is very well covered.

m; Medium, good body and heavy carbonation tingle.

o: A relatively light DIPA, great for summer sipping, Higher ABV than the C712 I had for dinner tonight but seems lighter.

Picked up a can of this at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden orange hue with a thick almost two finger white head that fades to leave light lacing.

S - Aromas of good melons and pineapple sweeter tropical fruits. Little bit of papaya and dank pine as well. Nice citrus peel.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of slightly sweet melon notes as well lighter tropical papaya notes. Loads of pineapple as well as dank citrus peel.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, but the body is really light and thin.

O - Overall this was a solid enough dipa but it's really nothing special. Very humdrum.

Serving Type: can

Thanks to rudzud, canned 7/01/19

Pours a medium frothy pillowy head with good retention and lacing, opaque cloudy pale color

Nose big juicy citrus, tangerine, orange juice, mango, papaya, sherbet and some pith, doughy wheat and vanilla, bread, a bit of melon/cantaloupe as well, touch of pineapple,light minerals and chalk as well

Taste doughy chalky base beer, wheat and doughy a little papery pulp, big citrus and tropical, mango, papaya, little pineapple, apricot stone fruit and cantaloupe melon, light bitterness, little vanilla spice, candied fruit, juicy, with a drier pithy finish, little alcohol, chalky doughy malt and some bitter pithy citrus lingering

Medium to lighter bod, lighter carb, creamy juicy base

Overall meh, too chalky, not enough juicy citrus/tropical to get through the minerals and malts, not one of their best

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque orange gold color with 2 fingers of creamy eggshell white head. The head leaves a crown of lacing as it slowly settles into a thick blanket.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit and orange peel, as well as pineapple and honey malts. There's a subtle tinge of spiciness on the back end.

The flavor brings lots of pineapple and candied orange with a wave of melon, overripe mangoes and bubblegum in the middle. Finishes slightly earthy and piney. Classic Tree House right here.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very pillowy and creamy. The alcohol is nigh undetectable.

Overall, a fantastic DIPA that really tastes like classic Tree House. It's tropical and creamy as hell whilst still being highly drinkable.

Wow. I love this beer. Poured for can into pint glass nice bright foamy head and a hazy tangerine body. Smells tangy mango and ok pineapple with a touch of coolness and lightness. Body is full and rounded and beautifully creamy. Taste is lightly citric in front with a slightly cool airy middle. light bitterness and a fantastic punchy note on the finish. Solid A to Z. I think it may have taken TH a little bit of time to sort out the processes with those super huge Charlton tanks, but these guys are not sitting idle on the triumphs of their recent popular success. Though I feel there may be some less than optimal batches coming out of the new place (nothing every really worse than good) I think things as of late have been very good. This and the Very GGGreen & King JJJ have been excellent. Cannot wait to dig into Very Hazy, Keep up the good work
