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!

Sweet citrus and hoppy aromatics on this one! Taste follows with some orange citrus bitterness on the finish...some juiciness in there. It is a well-balanced finish and has good depth.

Canned 10/25/19
L: Hazy golden yellow, 3 fingers of a nice white cap with moderate lacing.
S: Pithy citrus, mild aromas of melon, strawberry, and lemongrassy hop profile.
T: Delicious. Citrus, honey and bubble gum with grassy hop finish. It is rather hoppy and slightly bitter at finish, then the cascade of fruit translates into the after taste. Mango, apricot and pomegranate also come to mind on the taste.
F: medium in body, light to medium in weight. Moderate carbonation with just a tiny touch of booze. Overall fantastic and lively feel.
O: I am really enjoying this. Perhaps my favorite TH beer to date. Everything is there- the look, the smell and flavor. I am very glad to have tried and I would drink again. Cheers!

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!

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

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
