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!

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.

16oz can, Tree House goblet glass. Cloudy golden yellow body, pulpy with a one finger white head, good retention and lacing as usual. Smell is herbal, citrus and tropical fruit, Tree House yeast esters. It has a more of a herbal pine bite to it than Seventy Six did; has more of a balanced flavour to it with a solid resinous bitterness and less of the tropical fruit sweetness of its prior iteration. Smooth, creamy, medium bodied and soft carbonation, plenty of esters on the backend to balance out some of the resinous bitterness.

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.

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.
