Notes: Saturated is a Tree House Double IPA brewed with orange blossom honey, golden syrup, homemade mango simple syrup, and a blend of fruit forward American hops. It is carefully crafted to gently convey the essence of its individual constituents without an overly saccharine result. Saturated pours a glowing orange color in the glass and emits flavors and aromas juicy fruit gum, mango puree, light citrus honey, and sweet apricot. It is deeply complex and original, carving out a beautiful path of individualism and intrigue within our line-up of hoppy offerings, and we are quite excited to share it with you today!

4.42/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Canned on 11/25/19
Poured yellow orange with a fluffy 1 finger head and moderate soapy lacing
Aroma is fruity, citrus forward and hints if mango
Taste is sticky sweet to dry with a hint honey coming out
Finishes slightly tingly and dry
Over all it hides the abv well and the sweetness of the honey mango purée lingers in the finish. Not quite as heavy as some of TH’s DIPAs but tasty and I would seek it out again.

Bought at the brewery 11/26/19. Canned 11/25. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Opaque dark orange/green with a half inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and very dense lacing.

s: Citrus leaning to orange juice.

t: Follows the nose with moderate hop bite and some orange peel bitterness which lingers somewhat on the mainly dry finish. ABV is not in evidence.

m: Medium, very good body and some carbonation tingle.

o: A fine DIPA with a orange-like citrus flavor I particularly enjoyed. Perhaps slightly thinner than some of TH's DIPAs but an excellent sippable refresher.

Pours ultra hazy, gold in color with 1/8 inch head. Taste is huge mango with candied orange and apricot. Slightly sweet, medium bodied, high carbonation. I like this the more I sip it. Lots of juicy hop flavor. I was still expecting more with the name, but glad I opted for multiple cans. Will get this again. One of the most mango flavored beers I have had in some time.

4.65/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

L - pours a dull, orange glow. A little flat, a little milky, dense through and through. Orange-hued head with lacing pulled down by the dissipating head, leaving legs behind.

S - potent burst of orange-flavored honey, like you'd find in those little tubes at the Big E. Kiwi bubblegum, cantaloupe, and freeze-dried mango slices.

T - shot of mango juice up front. That's definitely the syrup. Sweet artificial peach flavoring and strawberry banana brightness. Bit of green hoppy goodness peeks through in the form of limey zestiness that leaves a lingering spicy, peppery pop. Melon and kiwi complement, giving this an outstandingly bright liveliness up front. The finish is grainy and pithy with dry, numbing bitterness.

F - smooth with touches of static electricity. Mostly cream with some zip to keep it going.

O - this is definitely saturated, but maybe not hop-saturated in the earthy, vegetal, lupulin..ness you'd expect from a saturated IPA. It's saturated in its vivid stone fruitiness and nectarized mango honey sugariness. Leaves a fuzzy sweater on the teeth. Can't have more than a couple of these, but they'll make for a great digestif.

Picked-up two cans at the Tree House Brewery in Charlton on Tuesday for $5.05, canned on date of 11/25. My sixty eighth brew reviewed from these guys. This has a unique taste. I liked it, didn't love it, don't think it warrants the price as KJ, VG, JM etc.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great a nice a super murky orange juice with a fat one finger creamy white head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thick blanket.

S - Big aromas of green pulpy hops, light spicy citrus, good sweet honey notes. Not getting any tropical notes now, there was a flash of mango when I opened the can but that was fleeting. The citrus fades as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with more of those green almost lupulin hops, mineral notes, citrus zest. The honey is non-existent, which is interesting because how do you brew a beer and not have honey come through is some regard? The tropical notes are minimal at best.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, alcohol hidden well but it's rather chalky.

O - Overall this was a rather underwhelming dipa. On paper it sounded awesome but execution leaves little to be desired. I wish I had an extra can though so I could bury it in my fridge for a few weeks and see if the honey and mango syrup actually become discernable.

Serving Type: can

THanks to rudzud
Pours a giant frothy foamy whispy head with great retention, big soapy lacing, super hazy cloudy medium orange color

Nose big citrus orange honey, some mango notes and tropical like, big hop lupulin green floral grassy notes, light doughy malt and maybe a touch of chalky mineral, lots of tangerine, a bit lackluster somehow despite all the characters in it, and the mango disappeared almost instantly

Taste lots of doughy pithy malt, a little chalky mineral again, lots of flaked proteins and too much, mild honey, fair citrus, with tangerine, a touch of candied dried mango, and maybe candied apricot, or papaya, sweet sugary but not really syrupy, green lupulin powder almost hop oil, medium lighter bitterness, drier finish, a bit more honey late

Mouth is med bod, a bit creamy but chalky, medium carb, no alcohol at least

Overall this was a letdown, seems poorly executed
