CachetCachet
Notes: Cachet is an imperial IPA brewed with copious amounts of oats in the grist and Cashmere hops in both the kettle and dry hop! It pours a vibrant orange color in the glass and puts forth flavors and aromas of peach, tangerine, fruit salad, tropical coconut, and overripe melon. A keen attention to detail during the brewing and conditioning process yields a beer with a thick, billowing head that clings to the glass as you drink it, adding to the appeal of the beer. Cachet joins our family of densely flavored IPA’s that get better as you work through the glass, and are a joy to drink time and time again. We hope it can contribute positively to a moment in your life, in a special place or in the company of those you love!

3-week-old can poured into a tulip glass.

Quintessential TH hazy in the glass: pours thick and murky, wonderful glowing orange-gold coloring, very juice-like and opaque. Smaller head than I expected, and what's there settles to a latte foam cap quite quickly. But still a solid finger of bright-white, tightly-compact bubbles that re-emerges swiftly with a few swirls of the glass. Nice splotchy lacing down the glass. With a slightly more impressive head and lacing, this one would be near-perfect in appearance.

LOTS going on on the nose, which is delightful. Tangerine, creamsicle, Juicy Fruit gum, melon, berries, mango, guava, ruby red grapefruit, peach, and lemon/lime. A little starchy, quite grassy, somewhat yeasty, with almost a buttery note at the end. Some pretty distinct alcohol esters that give it a slight acidicness. Starts out seeming sweet but ends up feeling like the liquid will be dry. Not sure I've experienced that spectrum change in an aroma profile before. Quite interesting overall.

Very juicy up front on the tongue, with a wonderful semi-sweet blast that's followed by a hit of pith and bitterness. Nice blend of citrus, stone fruit, and tropical fruit. Very grassy but not particularly dank or weedy. Pleasant floral and herbal notes, but a little green and starchy, which coupled with the pithy bitterness makes for a pretty sharp bite overall. Very dry finish with a healthy pop of grapefruit. Overall taste profile isn't nearly as complex as the nose, but even with the sharp bite it goes down amazingly easy. That dryness and pith really leaves you eager for the next sip. And the burbs are amazingly juicy and fruit. With a touch more fruit-specific sweetness and a touch less greenery, this one would rate much more highly. As is, it's still delicious.

Creamy and soft and just a touch chewy (which I like), with TH's standard (and awesome) coating of the teeth and tongue, making for a very lasting pithy grapefruit vibe finish. Perhaps a little alcohol heat on the back end, but that may just be the green bite resurfacing.

“Gary loves nate king cole!” 12/17/21
Yep, this is the real deal. Didn’t see this masterpiece coming. Oats make this luscious. Cashmere is the perfect descriptor. Truly gets better with each sip. Incredible craftsmanship!

L - pours a thick, oaty orange haze. Banana yellow with a certain milkiness that softens the blend of colors into a slurry of hop sludge. Not much in the way of head, but leaves an intriguing smattering of equidistant lacing spots.

S - warming oat and orange atmosphere. The liquid in my hand is cold, but the air entering my nostrils is warm. Cozy aromatics. Banana bread, melon, and the slightest hint of bubblegum.

T - zesty, grainy, and peppery. Spicy amalgamation of grapefruit, orange cream, and tropical punch gives way to an exotic kind of feel. Not so much the flavor of coconut (as described on the tin), but more the essence. It's fun. Cantaloupe-flavored bubblegum and mild berry Cremesaver. Peach fuzz and clementine juice finish it off, leaving a ringing bitterness and pithy dryness.

F - electrifying toastiness. Peppery carbonation assails the tongue as it's roasted over an open hop fire. Full and creamy; the oats are out in force.

O - ranges from soft, round, oaty fullness to zesty citrus bitterness. Quite the complex beer. Excellent balance of bold flavors to please everyone.

Can from Jeff, thanks again.
Hazy murky lemon yellow with a decent sized frothy white head. Citrus tropical and earthy grassy with plenty of sweet bready malt to back it up.

Golden hazy thickness. Creamy white foam head. Retention quality high.

A very strong hop aroma... I mean intense. Smells like freshly picked hop coned, then crushed between your fingers. Creamy mango, sweet citrus and milky oats in the golden maltiness.

A sweet citrus, candy infused flavor. It's wild and delicious. Once again, it's freshly picked hop cones. Lupulin powder, mango and orange crush, green leafy effects mix with creamy, silky oats and golden grains!

Wowza. Just incredibly deep and complex all around with an absolutely amazing mouthfeel and texture. A true New England wonder brew.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Tree House Willi Becher glass; canned of 11/17/2020, code KEEP COLD DRINK FRESH.
A: Pour a opaque, golden orange color (think pulpless orange juice) with a one to two finger, lemon chiffon head, rim and otherwise spotty retention, and thick, foamy rings of lacing.
S: Fruity nose with grapefruit, Clementine, barely ripe banana, lychee, caramel, and pine all well represented. The nose is creamy, yeah, I know that's weird, but it was.
T: Semisweet. Fruit more lychee and banana than anything with caramelized malt very evident. Solid, balance bitterness, given the style.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy AF and I don't mean alcohol free.
O: Cachet is a distinct and very enjoyable flavor pallet. Cashmere is an amazing hop in the right context and this is such a one. Reminded me of Banana FrozeFruit pops. Do they still make those?

16oz can dated 11/17/20.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch of white foam. Retention and lacing are pleasing to the eye. Ripe citrus in the nose but less pungent than expected. Medium bodied with a creamy, soft mouthfeel. Mango, peach, tangerine, and pineapple on the palate. Finishes with plenty of ripe tropicals, and minimal malt or bitterness.

Pale orange, really lemony look to this NEIPA contradicting the can which calls the beer bright orange. Plenty of ripe tropical fruit - mango, papaya, pineapple maybe even overripe notes. I don't detect any stone fruit but there is a hint of citrus. Those notes carry over to the flavor profile with some added bite and bitterness. That bitterness is the dominant feel after a sip. Not terrible but not ideal either.

From a 16oz can, dated 11/17/20. Served in an IPA glass.

Pours cloudy, opaque milky-orange with two-plus fingers of bubbly whipped froth. Retention is very good, leaving a thick, creamy cap and a heavy blanket of honeycombed lacing.

A moderately aromatic, green and leafy, almost minty nose with creamy orange and your various warm and sticky tropical fruits.

Taste very much in accord with the nose, green and woody herbal, leafy bitterness dominates with dank and juicy, composty melon, peach, orange peel and lime zest. Finishes with tongue-coating sour-tangy lemon and a slight coconut and lime vapor in the sinuses.

Feel is soft and doughy, creamy, medium-hefty bodied with ample, gentle carbonation and a modest boozy warmth in the gullet.

Overall... another Tree House IPA, right? Looks, smells and tastes approximately like dozens of other Tree House IPA’s - but the feel is incrementally superior to many of them.

L: Appearance of a milky creamy pineapple juice with a one finger head settling to a forever cap and leaving broken lines of lace with their own legs.

S: Loads of overripe mango which totally works. Otherwise tangerine and way underripe peaces.

T: The underripe peach is incredibly dominant on the palate and lessens the brew.

F: Pretty average for Tree House, well crafted.

O: I had high hopes from the look and smell, but unfortunately this hit the wrong notes in the end.

A very good lighter version of a NEIPA. Cloudy orange yellow, creamy looking with mild head and lacing. Dank, juicy, and bitter on smell and taste. A bit of tangy citrus flavor. Lighter to medium bodied, mild alcohol presence, slightly dry finish. Really like this one.
