Notes: Vivid is a Tree House Double IPA brewed with mango, honeydew, and tangerine powder in the mash and a blend of juicy, modern American hops in the kettle and dry hop. It pours a lustrous orange color in the glass and puts forth flavors and aromas of ripe summer melon, dank tropical fruit, sharp citrus, and, interestingly enough, vanilla! The fruit powder shines through subtly, but plays an important role in distinguishing this beer with an additional layer of complexity and intrigue. It is a shining example of the style of beer we like to put forth: Well integrated, boldly flavored beers that carry authentic flavors and are a pleasure to drink all the way through the glass. Enjoy!

Traded for this recently as it had a canning date of 1/31 with "WE ARE THE DREAMERS OF DREAMS" written above it. The label was abstract, but yellow and green, as the beer was just as undefined. Murky and turbid, lots about this was dark although it still went down relatively easily for the amount of flavor and booze that was present from start to finish!

Such a dark, peachy hue to this with lots of cloudiness to it and even more head topping it off. Loads of lacing left behind with a very deep ring near the top of my pint glass as there were scattered splotches the rest of the way down. Loads of tangerine, mango, and passion fruit in the nose as the taste was more heavy, tropical, and full of citrus pith. Plenty of orange slickness, strawberry patch, deep floral notes, and sharp grapefruit rounded things out as the malt was sweet and the finish was full of bubblegum, marmalade, and exotic jack fruit.

There was enough booze in this to be present, but not overpowering, as the range of flavors was allowed to last and linger as this fully warmed up. No overt bitterness of burn here as this was on par with Tree House's other offerings that I've had. Not enough to break any new ground or wow me over but this was fun, true to form, and didn't last very long in my glass!

16 oz. can. Murky orange. Smells of orange and sweet tropical fruit. Tastes of tropical fruits and citrus. Sweet. Creamy body. Medium heavy. Another big sweet DIPA from TH, but it's good.

Picked-up three cans at the Tree House Brewery in Charlton for $4.55. My eighty ninth brew from these guys. I liked this much better than the other 2 new releases I got that day (Cachet & Radiant).

Astringent, chalky. Taste like bad tang! Not a fan of powders!

Pours an opaque dark orange gold cor with a 3 foamy finger biscuit head that leaves full rings on the way down. The aroma has strong orange notes with some floral red grapefruit. Taste is similar, very intense with bold orange notes. There is a floral notes in the far background, accentuated by sweet, light caramel malt. Feel is very soft and very seltzery with a light to moderate alcohol burn.

This is a seriously good dipa with the optional neipa qualities TH is known for. Awesome.

Seems atypical for Treehouse in that it's flaccid. No distinguishable character, rather a little of this, a little of that, a smattering of ideas but no central core. Disappointing from this brewer.
