Curiosity Seventy SevenCuriosity Seventy Seven
Notes: With Curiosity Seventy Seven, we are highly invigorated to find cutting edge hops that pair well with our traditional varieties. To that end, Seventy Seven finds us utilizing several of the experimental varieties we have played with over the past year blended with traditional Tree House pairings. The result is a beer that is quite distinctive, and different from recent Curiosity offerings with more of a peach, pear, honeydew melon, strawberry kiwi flavor profile when compared to more citric, pineapple forward offerings of late. It is super intriguing and exciting to have process result in such a unique and pleasurable offering. Enjoy!

TREE HOUSE CURIOSITY 77 9/28/19

Acquired last Wednesday at the brewery. Canned on 9/19/19. Fine can art of a dragon fly. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Opaque dark gold/orange with an inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and blocky dense lacing.

s; Moderate citrus leaning to orange rind.

t; Dankness greets the palate with citrus notes and moderate bitterness which lingered fairly strongly on the dry finish.

m: Solid medium, excellent body and quite a lot of carbonation tingle.

o: Excellent DIPA, more mainstream NEIPA TH than 76 and to me moreso than TH's description would suggest, but still top notch. Especially fine for an autumn NEIPA due to its seemingly relatively hefty malt base.

4.11/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque deep orange gold color with a finger of creamy off-white head. The head is stubbornly persistent, leaving a crown of lacing before eventually settling into a thick blanket of foam. Probably the "haziest" beer I've seen from Tree House.

The aroma brings notes of candied peaches, pineapples, and white grape juice. There's some sweet cream and vanilla notes before a doughy malt backbone. Interesting aroma.

The flavor brings lots of peaches and pineapple, as well as some strawberry yogurt, kiwi, and oranges. The doughy malt is present with a very rindy, earthy finish.

The feel is medium bodied with lower carbonation. Pillowy soft and creamy. The alcohol is nicely hidden.

Overall, a great DIPA that has some interesting and unique flavors and aromas. The problem is this doesn't really stand out like a Tree House DIPA. This could have been made by anybody. It's still a great beer, just not quite up to Tree House standards. Better than 76 though.

L - about a finger of head that desperately clings to that height on the sides as the center caves in. Kind of a murky brownish orange that somehow gets darker and browner when held up to the light.

S - pineapple pith that's so pithy, it's borderline nail polish. Grape candy, lime, earthy hops, and some orangey mango juiciness.

T - zesty and acidic, but without any of the burning or bitterness. Almost feels like an electricity. Lime, kiwi, green papaya, and a strange meaty essence. Peach skin and pineapple twang. Steel-cut oats and vinous grape on the finish. Tingly bitterness lingers.

F - as fluffy as ever for TH fare. Similar to C76, a bit thin for this ABV, but only serves to make things more drinkable without sacrificing smooth creaminess.

O - this one is a little more unique than recent Curiosities with its focus on pointed, rindy flavors and smoothing them out. Other than that, similar levels of inspiration as C76; suffice to say all the creative output went into this week's other beers. You know, the ones for Lauren.

Picked up at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

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

S - Big aromas of what must be Nelson, little musty grape aroma and big tropical fruit notes. It's really generic New England ipa though.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice oranges and citrus peel, bitter oranges, tropical fruit, generic pineapple and guava.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy.

O - Overall this was a solid enough dipa, however, it's rather lackluster and cookie cutter. There isn't anything wrong but there really isn't anything new.

Serving Type: can

Thanx to rudzud
Big pillowy thick head with great retention and lacing, hazy cloudy opaque orange color

Nose big citrus tangerine orange, candy sweet, doughy wheat or flaked oats malt, creamy citrus orange vanilla, pineapple tropical notes, very generic

Taste sweet doughy creamy malt, chalky with minerals, flaked wheat oats or whatever, citrus, creamy orange, tangerine, mango, mild bitterness up front, turning spicy bitter rind hop late, little pineapple tropical

Mouth is med bod, creamy lush, creamy higher carb, low alcohol

Overall basically insert generic tree house experimental ipa, this was just the same as all tree house NEIPA beers, it's executed well but just the same cookie cutter ipa they make all the time, really not worthy getting at all, as it just the same as every other friggen tree house.
