Brighter Than StarlightBrighter Than Starlight
Notes: Brewed with Citra, Nelson, & Galaxy hops, Brighter Than Starlight merges all of the best attributes of I Have Promises To Keep and In Perpetuity with a process approach similar to that of Very Green. It pours an impenetrable yellow in the glass and tastes like lychee, orange gummies, starfruit, passion fruit, and peaches. This beer is inspired, both by our rampant and unrelenting desire to improve and to pay tribute to those we care deeply about. This is a milestone beer in many ways, and one we are exuberant to share with you.

Sweet orange-tangerine citrus, hint of sweet maltiness, and hint of earthy-wine grape nose on this one! Taste follows with a juicy-soft, slightly malty, grapefruit citrus bitter finish...some earthy hoppy vibes from the galaxy starts to show up as it warms. This is soft and thicc feeling on the palate! Tree Houses's version of the Citra/Nelson/Galaxy combo hazy is outstanding!

Poured from a can dated 3/31/21
Appearance is like a glass of grapefruit juice with a fluffy white head, nice cap as head dissipates
Juicy aroma with peach notes some earthy notes
Taste is juicy slightly sour grapefruit, peach and green grape
Very soft mouthfeel, creamy texture with a light citrus rind finish
Major juice bomb that’s soft and full drinking. Nice one

Canned 3/31/21

A: Pours a hazy bright yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus up front along with some tropical fruit and floral notes underneath. Quite juicy

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and then goes into the tropical fruit and floral notes. Again, very juicy with hardly any bitterness. Finishes with lingering citrus

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft

O: A very good DIPA that is most certainly a juice bomb. Super easy to drink. Definitely worth checking out

Canned 9/17/20, tasted 11/2/20. So good. One of my favorite DIPAs from Tree House. Nailed that blend of spicy hoppiness and lush fruitiness. A beautiful golden color, rich creamy mouthfeel. I liked its relatives "In Perpetuity" and "I Have Promises to Keep" as well, but this variation on the theme hit on more notes than those other two, in my opinion.

Canned 6 weeks ago.

L -- Muted orange haze with three finger of dense, solid white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Great retention and lacing
S -- Soft and creamy. Orange blossom, white peach, guava, subtle muskiness. By no means explosive, but just smells really... cozy?
T -- Orange, white grape, leafy earthiness, yellow grapefruit pith, kiwi
F -- Fluffy, soft, what you'd expect

Pours a hazy straw color with about a half finger of head. The nose is very citrusy and bright. The flavor profile is quite light particularly considering the abv. A light bitterness comes on at the finish and lingers for a nice long time. The body is quite light for the style.
