Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
Notes: Autumn is a fresh entry in the continuing evolution of Tree House's seasonal efforts. Inspired by the vibrant sensory experience associated with hop harvest in Australia, and harkening back to extraordinary memories of the Tasmanian countryside, Autumn utilizes carefully selected Galaxy hops atop a heavily oated base beer. The result is chewy hop nirvana. It has the power to instantly transport you to a place of natural wilderness, pristine air, and awe from which these delightful hops originate. We invite you to use it as a vehicle to reflect, give thanks, and revel in the company of friends this Autumn.

16 oz can, dated 10-1, purchased 10-12, consumed 10-13.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a big off-white head and a ton of lacing. Aroma and flavor are juicy tropical fruit, dank citrus, and just a hint of piney bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and pillowy. The 8.2% abv is well-hidden.

Truly an excellent imperial IPA. Great citrus forward aroma with an amazing aftertaste. I tried this next to a Pliny the Elder and liked this far better.

poured from a 16oz can into a guiness pint glass. pours a hazy, murky yellow with a big fluffy white head which leaves tons of lacing as the beer is consumed. dank tropical aromas abound on this one. taste is similar. it’s oozing with that combination of dank and tropical that only galaxy can provide. has a nice quick sharp bitterness to the finish. mouthfeel is full, smooth, almost sticky. idk if the oats really add anything here. i would’ve guessed the mouthfeel department but it’s the typical TH IPA mouthfeel, which is to say excellent. overall, super enjoyable all-galaxy DIPA.

Pours ultra hazy, bright caution light yellow in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is pineapple, lychee, and mango. Medium bodied, sweet with moderate carbonation. Soft and lovely. Snow is my favorite entry in the seasonal series, but this is very good. Will be picking this up again.

Pours a milky pale orangish-yellow in color with a bit under two fingers of dense white head. Aroma has lots of lime upfront with some stone fruits. Taste starts the same as the aroma; lime upfront, citrus pith, peach, nectarine, and some pineapple. Body is medium-full with moderate+ carbonation; smooth with some heft from the oats. Overall a very tasty beer that grew on me over the course of a pint. Good showcase of Galaxy.

Pours typical dense hazy thick orange/yellowish with typical TH tight white head that seems very yeast driven. Sticks around and leaves fantastic lacing.
smell is some mango and lychee and maybe some spiciness.
Flavor follows. Delish! Mouthfeel is nice and thick but yet still very drinkable. I could take a few of these back at a time.

16oz can, dated 09.13.19 and poured into a Tree House snifter glass.

The beer pours a very bright and pale golden color, honey hues with a foamy white head that has moderate retention and yields lots of soapy and sticky lacing. The aroma is very nice, bright floral bouquet, peach fuzz, grapefruit peel with some grassy and earthy raw green hop with dough and sweet yeast. The flavors are good, lots of peach and juicy citrus with a nice underlying floral character that brings out some grassy and greener hop flavors, light pine that finishes with sweet, soft pale grain and yeast. The mouthfeel is good, coating and creamy with a lively medium body that is smooth and finishes easily with a lightly warm sensation.

Verdict: A very nice IIPA from Tree House. Definitely gets one ready for hoodie season as the can points out, bright and juicy but restrained and moves nicely from bright to more earthy and bitter, analogous to the transition from summer to autumn.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Look: Burnished orange with yellow-white creamy head with good retention. Typical look for the style. Leaves good lacing through tasting session.

Smell: Peach, grapefruit, and hop resin with a hint of passion fruit.

Taste: Oh mama, that is delicious and so very creamy. All the aromas carry through to the palate with ample bitterness and a dry finish. Elegantly balanced and just damn delicious. Sappy and fruity with a perfect bitterness level. Pine needles and spicy hops come through as the beer warms.

Feel: Perfect. Lively carbonation and excellent heft for the style.

Overall: I wish I had bought more than one can. This is one of the first Tree House beers where I’ve gone Oh F*ck that’s delicious at each sip and had to mentally bring myself back to reviewing the beer. This is the beer that justifies the Tree House hype. Just excellence in a can.

Acquired yesterday at the brewery. Attractive can art of falling leaves. Canned 9/13/19. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Opaque yellow/orange with a finger thick white head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Citrus leaning to grapefruit and lemon rind.

t; Strong citrus with some dankness over a solid malt base. Dry finish with lingering bitterness.

m; Medium, very good body and carbonation tingle.

o; Wow such a quintessential NEIPA, as TH has so well mastered. Only criticism might be seems unbalanced towards hops with slightly excess bitterness. But it certainly keeps your attention and has lots of staying power. A great NEIPA tribute to the season.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

L - extremely pale yellow. Milky and hazy; looks like paint. Thicc. Vibrant white head with spotty lacing.

S - loaded up with pineapple creamsicle. Hints of Green in my glass. Zesty grapefruit peel and lemon-lime sherbet. This is classic Tree House. Whiffs of sweet melon and even grape.

T - potent package of saturated hops. Galaxy dominates with flavors of ripe pineapple, orange cream, and lime candy. Oats creamify the shit out of this beer, adding a chewy layer of raw, earthiness. Mild acidic bite blends with the muggy fruitiness. Punchy and in your face. Finishes with citrus rind and a tingly, numbing sensation. Takes a few seconds to recover from the hop assault.

F - full and jam-packed with creamy, velvety, silky hop feathers. Soft like peach fuzz and suffocating in its rich, whipped thickness. Well done.

O - Green with oats. Harkens back to my earliest memories of Green and it being what I thought was super bitter and hoppy, but still juicy and fruity. Either my taste buds have adapted over time or Green has become more juice. Now I'm leaning toward the latter, seeing how this manages to pack that pungent bite I've almost forgotten. Oats might just be the magic ingredient, adding the body and grainy bitterness I needed in my life.

Pours a giant foamy semi dense creamy head with great retention, pillowy lacing, very cloudy hazy pale apricot color

Nose brings citrus and mild tropical, caramelized candied pineapple, mild orange cream and tangerine, creamy flaked oats and doughy creamy malt,

Mouth is med bod, super velvety creamy milky but no lactose, medium to lighter carb pretty much no alcohol

Overall pretty solid typical tree house, super super milky creamy, but nothing overly special for tree house

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque yellow gold color with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. The head hangs around for decades, leaving a ring of cobweb lacing as it settles into a thick blanket of foam.

The aroma brings notes of peach rings, pineapple, lime zest, and grapefruit. There's some faint peppery spice and herbal notes with a doughy malt backbone.

The flavor brings lots of pineapple and peach notes, followed by some tangerines, grapefruit, and lemon meringue pie. There's plenty of doughy malt present before an herbaceous and piney finish.

The feel is medium-full bodied with soft carbonation. Very creamy and soft. Fluffy like a pillow. Alcohol is nicely hidden.

Overall, a great DIPA that is also a great representation of the Galaxy hop. The oats add a wonderful creaminess to the body whilst the beer itself remains surprisingly drinkable.

Picked up a four pack of this at the brewery. Really fitting can design considering the name and time of year.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy pale gold hue with a fat two finger white head that faded super super slowly to leave really nice lacing and a dense creamy blanket. The side lacing is practically painted on in layers by the time you get halfway through the glass.

S - Aromas of muted pineapple though as it warms the pineapple opens up to an almost spicy pineapple. The general aroma is a bit on the greener side, almost papery. Nice softer malt on the nose along with a little bit of pithy citrus peel.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with the heavy, creamy, nearly chewy oats making a big presence up front and throughout. The hops are pleasant with lightly tropical pineapple flavour along with really nice grapefruit pith and peel. The pithy grapefruit bitterness is there but super subdued and soft. As it warms the tropical fruit pops a bit more as well as lingers more on the finish.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, medium to almost heavy bodied, super creamy and almost chewy due to all the oats. Alcohol is hidden quite well.

O - Overall this was a rather solid DIPA. Awesome appearance and mouthfeel but I wish the hops popped more on the taste and especially the nose. It'll be interesting to see how this drinks in a few weeks as I think that may liven up the Galaxy hops a bit.
