Curiosity Seventy SixCuriosity Seventy Six
Notes: Curiosity Seventy Six is brewed with pale, crystal, and dextrin malts and a boatload of our favorite Northwest American hops. Eschewing the heavily oated offerings of late, Seventy Six gets back to basics and focuses on body, texture, mouthfeel, and head retention. It pours a beautiful orange color in the glass and hits with super overripe mango, sweet nectarine and apricot nectar-like flavor profile. It is buoyed by an airy body and a light drinking affect atypical of a Double IPA, making it super easy drinking. The devil is in the details, and with Seventy Seven we can not only taste, but see and feel the difference for our efforts. Enjoy!

16oz can, Tree House goblet glass. Cloudy hazy golden yellow body, one and half finger frothy white head, great retention and plenty of lacing. Smell is juicy oranges, a touch of sugary ester, minimal caramel, more juicy citrus. The flavour is quite juicy and probably one of the more "juicy" IPAs I've had from them in a while, in the sense that it follows authentic orange citrus flavours a bit more than others. Floral and herbal bite in the background, medium bodied with a nice creamy, soft carbonation, leaving mostly juicy oranges and esters on the finish.

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

Pours a milky yellow-orange in color with a finger-ish of white head that leaves behind decent lacing. Aroma has lots of nectarine and some sweetness. Taste has mango, nectarine, and moderate sweetness. There is a harsh hoppy note (not bitterness) in the finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Decent beer but the harsh finish detracts significantly from all the other good stuff going on here.

TREE HOUSE CURIOSITY 76 9/25/19

Acquired at the brewery today. Canning date 9/19/19. Interesting and well done can art of a lady bug. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Opaque orange with a finger thick white head which receded to very thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Intense tropical fruit and citrus leaning to grapefruit and orange rind.

t; Follows the nose with moderate to strong hop bite over a solid malt base. Dry finish with lingering bitterness.

m; Medium, lighter body than it looks, some carbonation tingle.

o: Another superb TH NEDIPA, flavorful and refreshing.

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

L - pours a hazy pinkish red-hued orange. Looks like mango juice. Thin, oily head gently rests on the surface.

S - aromas of mango, juicy fruit, white bread, pineapple, and soft oats. Dubble Bubble gum and a thick, saturated juiciness.

T - sweet grape candy, blood orange, pineapple (or is it oat?), and spicy grapefruit peel. Tiptoes back and forth between zesty and juicy. Peach marmalade, tangy malts, and a cozy, warming fruit character.

F - light and fluffier than usual for a TH DIPA. Little extra zip in this carbonation.

O - digging the rich sweetness, but only because it's tastefully balanced by pith and peel. While an outstanding beer in its own right, it feels less inspired than TH's most recent Curiosities and new beers.

3.54/5  rDev -19.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque orange color with a finger of soapy off-white head. The head leaves a ring of lacing as it settles into a thin crown.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit, tangerines, and mangoes. There's some honeydew melon and pineapple with a doughy malt backbone. Good, yet entirely ordinary for Tree House.

The flavor follows the nose: Lots of citrus with some overripe mangoes and honeydew melon. Pineapple and vanilla notes are followed by some doughy malt. Absolutely no bitterness whatsoever here.

The feel is medium bodied with lower carbonation. Very soft and creamy. Alcohol is mildly present. Slightly oily on the finish.

Overall, a good but entirely underwhelming beer. There are plenty of fruity hop flavors here but it's a tad too sweet and lacks any semblance of balance. Even the mouthfeel is atypical of Tree House. Good, but very disappointing.

Canned on 9/19 . Poured to Glass on 9/20.
A: Slightly Orange side hazy colour. Finger of cloud.

O: One of the best feel in the Curiosity series for me.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light lacing and thin wisps.

S - Big aromas of lighter citrus juice followed by generic tropical fruit juice nose, pineapple and passion fruit. Light malt backbone. Almost tropical fruit creamsicle.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice almost herbal tea notes up front, big tropical fruit tea as well, passion fruit minus the sour. Light mineral notes, almost chalky.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, nicely carbonated and fluffy.

O - Overall this was a rather solid dipa. Nice tropical hops albeit generic. Still it was quite pleasant.
