Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
Notes: Tango is an IPA brewed with a large dose of oats and a blend of fruit forward American aroma hops. Tropical fruit, papaya, ripe mango, strawberry banana, and earthy citrus. The perfect balance of hop saturation, drinkability, and heft.

Typical Tree House deep rich and thick hazy pour, which I mean only as a high complement. Blast of tropical fruit in the nose like guava, papaya with some overripe mango. Same goes for the palate with mango taking the forefront and some well balanced piney hop aftertaste. Rich and full mouth feel that continues the all around excellence of the beer.

Thanks to a kind American patriot for sending me a box bulging with Tree House (though he didn’t do it out of the kindness of his heart, of course). 16 oz. can.

The pour is classic TH – 100% Florida Orange Juice. The nose is tropical fruit smoothie, with banana the only thing that sticks out. Not bad.

Tango & Cash was the pinnacle of the 80s bad buddy movie craze. Don’t believe me? Go watch, if you dare. The beer is full of sharp mango & nectarine, with a bracing backstop of green, bitter, piney hops. Simultaneously aggressive & creamy; interesting trick. Wham! did that once in 1984. No problem putting away the big can.

Such a refreshing change from the shitty NE IPAs littering the MN landscape. Very good beer.

Fresh from the brewery. I dig this beer but I smell only a hint of wet hops. Taste: sour tangerines and red grapefruit. Nice mouthfeel but seemed thin for a TH IPA.

Enjoyed at the brewery on a Saturday. This was stellar. Like mango juice. Perfect body, crispness, feel. Massive tropical fruit flavor. Really bummed to miss this in cans, as it sold out earlier in the day. This is top shelf.

Picked up at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy pale golden hue with a thick white head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thick halo.

S - Big aromas of red strawberries up front before going to big heavy typical fruits galore. Big banana notes too as well as an almost flaked wheat.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with big berries up front before going heavy to the tropical fruit notes and a bit of oats. The problem here though is that the finish is VERY green. The can is about a week old so it's a shame it's still this green.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, fluffy.

O - Overall this was a very solid ipa from Tree House. The fruit notes are just lovely I just wish it wasn't so green on the finish.

Serving Type: can

Thanks to rudzud, canned 8/30/19
Fair pillowy dense creamy head, great retention and good lacing, hazy cloudy pale apricot orange color

Nose loads of tropical juicy citrus fruit, huge mango, some pineapple, guava, papaya, orange tangerine, mild sweet doughy malt, light strawberry like berry

Taste mild sweet doughy gristy malt, loads of pithy citrus and tropical fruit, big mango, guava, papaya, then big citrus orange tangerine, creamy flaked oat or wheat protein, touch of brewing salts with soft creamy juicy malt, no candy just rich fruit, touch of red berry, dry medium bitter finish, turning a little spicy green like hop lingering

Mouth is med to a little fuller bod, rich juicy creamy, medium higher carb

Overall very nice, just a little green spicy like, but otherwise very good

L - now that's a label. I kinda dig it though. Brings a certain vibrance to the TH label line. Pours a dull shade of orange brown. A lot less vibrant than the label! Coursely-bubbled fluffy head.

S - quite pungent; I can sniff this one out from across the room. Unmistakably jackfruit with whiffs of strawberry banana, kiwi, grape candy, and mango. Hint of warming acetone on the very finish.

T - strawberry banana smoothie all the way. Rock solid backbone thanks to the oats, featuring flavors of cantaloupe, white bread, and nectarine. Fun and fluffy, juicy all the way until herbal bitterness and vague lip tingles creep in at the last minute.

F - simultaneously full/creamy and light/drinkable. Hearty and satisfying, yet I can't put the glass down.

O - the drinkability on this one is insane. Good thing it's "only" an IPA. All the light, fruit salad flavors of recent curiosities without the alcohol poisoning. Well, not as much anyway.
