Curiosity Seventy NineCuriosity Seventy Nine
Notes: With Curiosity Seventy Nine, we experimented with how regionality affects the hop characteristics in our beer. We chose to utilize Citra grown exclusively in Washington for this batch in contrast to the Idaho Citra utilized in Seventy Eight. To our delight, Curiosity Seventy Nine turned out exceptional, and quite distinct! To our palate, Seventy Nine is more blatantly orange forward, with a less rounded character and more of a straight citrus onslaught. It conveys some serious juice notes, indeed. The flavor is carried by a tender mouthfeel, and a hefty body. We are super excited to share the unique and individual terroir of the Evergreen State with you in Curiosity Seventy Nine. Enjoy!

16 oz. can. Murky orange. Smells of orange and some earthy hop tones. Some sweetness. Tastes of orange, oatmeal malt, and earthy hop flavor in the back end. A little monotonous. Medium heavy. It's fine.

As I sit here and drink this I honestly have no idea how this could be improved upon! This is like everything I want in a New England IPA - murky as f***, juicy as f*** and balanced as f***!!!

Look is a cloudy dirty chunky green orange!

Smell is every citrus fruit in existence combined!

Taste follows nose!

Juicy as hell but balanced with a perfect hop bitterness so as to not be too sweet.

Just RIDICULOUS good!

Tree House is on a roll - they are putting out SO MUCH beer but quality remains in the stratosphere!

I'm so spoiled, I had Juice Machine the other day and it was this good - Tree House is the standard to which other breweries making NEIPA's should be judged.

5 stars across the board.

Umm, yeah. I think the current rating of 92 is spot on for this beer. When I popped the can and poured it, woo ha! Huge aroma like Zeus taking a bong hit out of a volcano. That being said, the taste didn’t really speak to me like Harriet Andersson dressed as a buxom, Swedish peasant. Don’t get me wrong; this beer is Shelly Winters ugly (what in the hell was Montgomery Clift thinking in “A Place in the Sun”?), but it’s not the top of the class which a lot of times Tree House reaches. Good, but not grand.

Woot!

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

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 10/25/19. Pours a very hazy yellow with a finger sticky white head that leaves loads of thin webs of lace with very solid retention. 4.75

Smell tangerine, pineapple, guava, and some apricot really one dimensional but awesome just the same. 4.75

Taste follows just bursting with ripe fruit tangerine, guava, pineapple, and apricot amazing! 4.75

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, stick not dry from all the fresh hops, and at 8.3% loaded with flavor but insanely drinkable. 4.75

Overall just another wow beer from these guys, doesn’t get much better. 4.75

Shared with JLindros.

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

S - Big aromas of citrus, juicy oranges bright juicy citrus peel and juice. Nice bright juicy almost tropical citrus.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice bright citrus, however, it's almost dank. Really good soft bitterness and juice though it does come across as a bit generic.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, fluffy nougat like.

O - Overall this was a solid enough dipa, I like the orange citrus zest going on even if it was generic.

Serving Type: can

Thanks to rudzud
Mild creamy foamy head with light lacing, hazy cloudy orange color

Nose mild citrus, tangerine pithy like, chalky mineral and doughy creamy malt, very light overall and super Tree House NEIPA style

Taste is sweet malt notes with doughy creamy malt, pithy like, chalky mineral notes, fair citrus, orange zest and juicy orange, pithy, hint of tropical mango, little rind especially late

Mouth is med bod, a bit creamy, pithy, medium to higher carb, just a touch of alcohol

Overall not bad, but again just super generic Tree House Double NEIPA, they can't seem to really innovate anymore

poured into a pint glass via can

color is a muted hazy yellow with white foam

smell is navel oranges

taste is more grapefruit than orange but juicy as hell. This one was a bit more acidic than other TH beers I've had thou

carbonation is high and the mouthfeel is just right

Acquired at the brewery last Sunday. Another fine Curiosity series can art of a hummingbird. Poured from the 16 oz. can into an English nonick pint.

a: Opaque orange/yellow with an inch and a half white head which receded to thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Moderate tropical fruit.

t; Follows the nose with slight piney notes and moderate hop bite on a solid malt base. Dry finish with slight lingering bitterness.

m; Hefty medium plus, great body and considerable carbonation tingle.

o: Yet another top flight NEDIPA in the much esteemed TH Curiosity series.
