Curiosity Eighty FiveCuriosity Eighty Five
Notes: Drawing on the knowledge gained from both Curiosity Seventy One and Curiosity Eighty, we are pleased to present this Double IPA for your enjoyment today! Eighty Five pours a dazzling yellow color in the glass and presents with a syrupy body filled with fruity esters. We taste and smell fruit loops, honeydew melon, mango hi-chews, and tropical punch bubblicious. A stand out in the series, Eighty Five has everything we desire to present in a Double IPA - bright flavors, a soft body, and superior drinkability. Enjoy!

4.27/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16 oz. can dated 12/19/19. Poured into Veil tulip glass.

L: Big white head, a good 3F job. Lots of fluffy white lacing and a cap and ring with long-term retention. Beer is a turbid golden orange.

S: Very tropical in nature, a bit grassy.

T: Tropical, especially mango. Also lots of honeydew and muskmelon in here. Grassy finish.

F: Light to medium body, mild carbonation. The usual Tree House composition and balance strength.

O: Another good IPA, slightly different taste than you might expect. Keep experimenting.

4.38/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from the can into a Palm tulip. Body is hazy but bright yellow/golden with a small white head that recedes quickly.

S: Nose jumps out of the glass - white grape skins, pineapple juice, touch of pine needles.

T: Juicy tropical fruit - pineapple, melon and melon rind - and some grapefruity bitterness about 3/4 of the way back of the sip. Heat noted at the back end.

M: Nice creamy, juicy TH feel. Call it medium in heft. Smooth.

O: Smooth and tasty. Very good. I think I like it better than the Very Sappy I had last night.

Cheers, and happy 2020!

Fresh can, stored cold. This just misses the mark for me. Looks like TH for sure but taste and smell is off spice (kinda of like like mosaic onion but different).

Acquired at the brewery 12/24/19. Striking can art of a lizard. Canned 12/19/19. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Opaque yellow-orange with an inch thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Citrus leaning to grapefruit, and tropical fruit.

t; Follows the nose with the emphasis on a tropical fruit mix, light to moderate hop bite on the dry finish.

m; Hefty medium, great body and some carbonation tingle.

o: A well-balanced DIPA with ABV well covered. Tasty and satisfying.

Picked up at the brewery and 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 juicy fruit gum and pineapple, citrus peel and zest.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice juicy gum and dank citrus, hops are pleasant, with melon and pineapple.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, but it's creamy and a little fluffy.

O - Overall this was a solid enough dipa, really nice fruity hops.

Pours hazy, pale gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is sweet mango, starfruit, and candied sugar. Heavy bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter. Another solid entry in this series. In the better half of curiosities but not as good as their regulars.
