Curiosity Eighty OneCuriosity Eighty One
Notes: Curiosity Eighty One is a fresh exploration of our house yeast, aiming to mix exotic hops with our familiar yeast profile in a way that integrates seamlessly with the beer. With our house yeast character controlled through careful fermentation management, a proprietary hop blend featuring varieties from three continents are able to shine. The result is a distinctly juicy rendition, with notes of fruit loops, tropical fruit leather, orange gummies, and tropicana all presently clearly and brightly in this gorgeous interpretation of double IPA - Enjoy!

16 oz. can.
Canned 11/08/19.
Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a cloudy/murky golden body with some lacing. Nose of citrus, slight pine, and slight tropical fruit. As it warms there is a bit of currant on the nose as well. Taste of citrus (orange, grapefruit), slight tropical fruit (mango), and very slight pine resin towards the finish of citrus pith. Nice feel and overall, a fairly complex and solid DIPA and definitely worth the effort. Cheers to Charlton! (and Rob!)

Picked up some of these at the brewery.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy golden orange hue with a thick two finger head that faded slowly to leave a thick one finger blanket.

S - Aromas of juicy orange flesh and zest, some slight bitterness on the back end. Rather light stone fruit; not getting much in the way for tropical aromas at all.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with pleasant juicy oranges. Very orange juice like with increased bitterness, flashes of the stone fruit with some really, really subtle lingering tropical notes.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, little crisp, doesn't quite have the fluffiness that comes with a Tree House DIPA though.

O - Overall this was a solid enough DIPA, however, there's nothing that really wows. I have a suspicion that this beer, at the date of this review, is simply too 'green' still. Certainly worth waiting before cracking anymore cans of this...unless you like your hoppy beers to have that pulpy 'green' hope flavour instead of the actual flavours and aromas the hops should have.

Pours hazy, yellow gold in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is pineapple juice, pine, and grapefruit. Sweetish start with a distinctly bitter finish, medium bodied, high carbonation. Not a bad beer, but ranks somewhere in the lower middle of the curiosities I have tried. No taste totally stands out in this one. Worth a try still.
