Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
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!

11/17/20 can opened and reviewed on 1/7/21

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

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.

Incredible 16oz can from Dope - thanks man! mid-June canning, poured into a HF tulip. Beautiful mimosa-like pour is brilliantly hazy and soft orange...fluffy white/off-white head and lacing...pops with tropical fruit in the form of pineapple and mango, with an underlying dose of citrus fruit and floral/greenness. The taste really follows the nose well, like most Tree House IPA's, tropical and fruity and floral...tangerine juice, coconut, mango, what is probably their house yeast (I'm starting to recognize it) in a small smack of fruity dryness, fluffy and smoooooth body is so crushable at 8% +. Just another fantastically soft and fluffy tropical tapestry. Love these brews.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. Canned 6/18/20. "Cachet me outside, how bou dat?" the stamp says ... capital!

Appearance: murky darkish yellow hue with three fingers of frothy ivory foam atop. This seems to be a pattern with these Tree House NEIPAs, and it's not a bad one.

Smell: spicy, overall, but also sweet and juicy. The spicy, earthy hops are quite smooth as well. Not bad at all.

Taste: ooh, very interesting. Much more juicy than the aroma suggests; papaya and guava, and other earthly delights. Definitely some stone fruit in the mix. I don't quite get the coconut from the description, but this thing is a helluva party, and I am absolutely into it.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a very good and well-integrated carbonation and a great creaminess. These folks at Tree House have texture _nailed down_.

Overall: definitely my favorite of the Tree House beers I've tried. The others were very good as well, and well-made, but the flavors of this one simply appeal to me a whole lot more. Wonderful!

Thanks friend for the can! As always the pour is gorgeous from a TH NEIPA: hazy orangey ellow with a white head and tons of lacing. Smell is more subtle than some of their others: peach, melon, pear, tangerine, papaya, lemon, and somewhat bitter yet very dank hops. Taste is even more mellow, save the refreshingly bitter and dank hop finish. Get more melon, pineapple, peach and clementine that anything before the hops. Feel is bright starting, dank finishing, bitter hops shape in contrast to airy, soft, and dry haze.

poured from a 16oz can into a willi becher pint glass. pours a thick hazy gold with over a finger of firm white head. i dig the aromas and flavors of the Cashmere hops. it’s tropical but has more of a lemon character to it. it taste a little better than it smells. mouthfeel is spot on. Tree House has that special mouthfeel on its IPAs - thick, soft, fluffy. it’s very much what separates them from a lot (and i mean a lot) pf other NE IPAs

fantastic brew. done just how a TH double IPA should be. Reminded me of HAZE. Not sure, some of these taste similar, with small nuances. Can nock it though because it's great.
House yeast present for sure.

After being in line in my car for an hour or so I damn well better like this beer. Ha! Ha! It came as part of a package that I had ordered and I had never heard of this beer before but this whole coronavirus deal worked well picking out beers simply asTreehouse put together packages which was really nice. Gave me a chance to try different beers and I took it vantage of it. This was wonderful can’t wait to drink a couple more of them. Stay safe!

Canned on 5/20/20; consumed on 5/27/20. Shout-out to Steve-O for the delivery.

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass. Body is hazy darkish golden with a half-finger of white head on top.

S: Juicy pineapple-orange juice. Ripe peaches/nectarines.

T: Tropical fruit-orange juice: mango, melon, clementines, orange peel. Soft ripe peaches. Limes and a hint of pine at the finish.

M: Nice creamy-smooth-juicy TH feel to this one, as per usual. Very easy to drink.

O: Another winner from TreeHouse, of course. I'm not terribly familiar with Cashmere hops, but TreeHouse has done a nice job with them here.

I’m so sick of writing constant good things about this brewery, but damn, Cachet is good

Pours a typical look, and initial taste is very DIPA goodness, but the oats in this do seem to dial the fruitiness back - all very well done again.

I like the new mix packs and how they allow us to taste the many varieties. Some of my friends, like M Sondel think your brewery is the best as he has had the same beer 400 times, but this beer shows the many varieties you can provide. My other friend Chris Truskey, doesn’t understand how to open the can, and wishes it was in a bag with a straw.

Anyways, again, great beer

16 oz. can dated 3/11/20. Thought it was their porter (similar can design) and did not crack until 4/20/20. Hope it is still decent.

L: Big 2F+ fluffy head that usually says past its prime IPA. Leaves lots of fluffy lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a turbid light golden-orange.

S: This held up well. Lots of peach, mango, melon, smells really good. Some grass and only a little dank.

T: Honestly, held up pretty well. Still getting lots of peach and melon with very little bitterness or malt coming very forward. Quite flavorful.

F: Lighter bodied than the ABV would indicate, mild carbonation. Drinks VERY well for that ABV, with a pretty neutral finish and comes off rather fruity and refreshing. Well-constructed and balanced.

O: This is really nice even after 6 weeks and now I am KICKING MYSELF for not noticing and trying it fresher. Big winner for Tree House.

Pours a hazy straw yellow to pale orange in color with a finger of white head that leaves behind decent lacing. Aroma has peach and tangerine. Taste is full of stone fruits, ripe tropical fruits, and citrus. Lots of peach, ripe mango, and tangerine; very smooth and tasty but a bit of alcohol in the finish. Medium-light in body with moderate carbonation. This is another tasty beer from Tree House. I’ve had this just a day after canning and again after a few weeks in the can and I find that I do prefer this one super fresh.

Light orange peel colour with a thick head. Another Tree House beer with rich fruit flavors. I taste mango and lime with a slight piney aftertaste. It’s crisp and refreshing for a beer that is 8.2%

Very tasty! I loved the look of the lighter straw color, and the nice foamy head. Nice tangy citrus smell, and a light but slightly creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Eminently drinkable and refreshing.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Consumed 3/20/20

Pale tangerine orange with some gold, hazy, medium sized off-white head, fades to a few wisps
Loads of citrus, with tangerine and mandarin orange slices, spritz of grapefruit, flowery citrus, some herbal, leafy hops, weed, peach, apricot, melon, melon rind, some coconut (possibly power of suggestion), low bitterness, something vaguely medicinal, pale malts, light sweetness, oats
Medium body, smooth and a bit chewy, typical carbonation

Cachet is yet another Tree House DIPA with oats, but it is distinct because of the Cashmere hops. I'm not sure if I've encountered Cashmere before, but the range of fruit aromas and flavors is quite impressive.

This was the next beer in my queue that I had to get to, as I've been working my way through my Tree House cans at this point. While this wasn't a brew that I'd place among their upper echelon, it was fun, easy to drink, and on par with their typical offerings. Just don't go looking for the next Julius or Juice Machine here!

As to be expected, this had a murky, orange hue to it with enough head topping it off. Most of the lacing was in the form of a deep, thick ring near the top of my pint glass with some scattered, splotchy sections below that. Lots of tangerine, lime, peach, and fruit cocktail in the varied and juicy nose as the taste was just as slick, sweet, and muddled as the aroma led me to believe. The peach lingered in the taste along with a ton of tropical fruit and wet, grassy dankness that tied everything in together. Not a lot of sweetness to this as this as more along the dank and slick slide when it came to it's fruitiness. Lots of melon and cantaloupe emerged once this warmed up, as it was soft throughout my time with it...

Canned on 1/23/20 with "C.A.C.H.E.T RULES EVERYTHING AROUND ME" written above it, this was a nice reference to the Wu-Tang Clan for those of us who were, and still fully are, old-school. This had a classic feel to it as if it was a New England IPA that could have been brewed 25 years ago. Soft on the palate with a creamy mouthfeel, basic malt, and light carbonation, this wasn't the best that Tree House had to offer but was typical of their style in every way. Worth a go once for those who need their fix without being hit over the head!

Canned on 1/23/20.

A - Opaque medium to dark golden tan color with thin, dense, white creamy lacing. This sticks to the sides of the glass like fruit juice.

S - Juicy tropical fruit, juicy peach, tangerine, and mango dominate the nose.

T - Peach, mango, and some tangerine - all from start to finish and ends with a nod to the sweeter side with low bitterness.

M - Thick, soft texture, and bone dry on the back of the tongue.

O - Highly recommended.
