Notes: Punch is an American IPA brewed with a copious amount of oats and all Galaxy hops paired with our distinctive house yeast. It is brewed to convey expressive hop flavors in a way that is juicy and refreshing to your palate, without overdone or abrasive flavors. We taste and smell ripe pineapple, intense citrus, passion fruit, and lemon-lime. Punch strikes the perfect balance between body, hop saturation, and drinkability to be an ideal beer in any situation. Love at first sip. Enjoy.

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

A pretty good-looking beer considering the style. Nice frothy head with great retention. Nose is citrus, mango and tree resin. Extremely aromatic with a bouquet of tropical flavors. Beer opens citrus, mango, starfruit and cane sugar. Creamy with notes of vanilla and lactose almost. A touch of bittering hops right at the middle gives me some grassiness too. Finishes sweet. Honey and clementine. There's a nice balance here. Body is light to medium with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth and soft on the palate and goes down fluffy. Lingering, bone dry finish. The feel is excellent.

A really good beer and the addition of oats here makes the feel unreal!

16 oz. can. Pours a murky orange. Smells of tropical fruit, peach, and some light passion fruit. Tastes about as smooth and creamy as any IPA I've had. Orange, papaya, and a passion fruit zip. Creamy oat profile without being too sweet. Low bitterness, but a lingering acidic fruity hop flavor helps. Medium body and extremely creamy. Very drinkable and very flavorful. Impressive.

Pours yellow with great tastes of citrus. Soft mouthfeel with a lemon and citrus aroma. Good white head that lasts. Solid carbonation and a pleasure overall to drink.

16oz can poured into a globe.

A: Dull golden color with opaque haze. Bone white head retains well and leaves behind thick webs of lacing.

S: Starfruit, pineapple, guava, peach, lemon pith with sugar. Maybe even some strawberry. Green and leafy undertones. Grain base is doughy and oaty with suggestions of confectioners sugar.

T: Peach and orange up front. White grapefruit and lemon zest. Tropical notes of guava and melon. Strawberry juice. Eventually a big pull of green, leafy and earthy hop tones pull through and begin to dominate the back end. Moderate bitterness. Doughy and starchy undertones with a dash of confectioners sugar. Finishes with green and leafy hops and some trailing citrus rind.

M: Medium bodied, soft and creamy. Plenty of grippy astringency. Well carbonated with a lot of scrubbing action.

O: This beer toes a fine line and might just go over it a little. It is possible to use too much hops. There’s a really nice tropical character going on here, but also a lot of astringency and earthiness. It hinders drinkability a little, but not enough to derail the experience. It’s still well worth a drink if you like the style.

Canned 09/04/19 “where palm trees dipped and seagulls swerved”

Big fan of Galaxy so this is a easy favorite. Beautiful pour and massive aromas of fresh tropical fruit. Flavor and feel are soooo creamy, and naturally, perfectly hopped with all the tasty qualities of Galaxy. I simply don’t understand how Tree House can make beer into an art form. They can’t go wrong with any release. This is an exquisite NEIPA.
