VividVivid
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!

Pours hazy, orange gold in color with 1/2 inch head. taste is big mango and tangerine with light vanilla. Medium bodied, slightly bitter, moderate carbonation. Gets better as the beer warms. One of the better new ipas fro Tree House lately. A lot better than Honey. Should have gotten more.

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.

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

16 oz. can dated 12/23/19. Poured into Kane goblet. I really should get some Tree House glassware.

L: 1F white foamy head, good retention. Reduces to thin cap and ring, with lots of lacing left on glass. Beer is a turbid orange gold.

S: Definitely lots of melon and citrus. I do get the vanilla in the description, but not sure I would have come up with it myself.

T: Melon and citrus. That tangerine powder sure is interesting - it's definitely a new taste. Very slightly bitter finish, but as always flavors are soft and nicely rounded.

F: Medium body, moderate carbonation. The usual Tree House construction and balance.

O: Neat new DIPA from Tree House, definitely hoping it stays in the rotation. Was it a Curiosity at some point? They're not telling.

a: hazy flat orange color with nice 3 finger solid, yet frothy off-white head thats nice and rocky

s: mango, tangerine, sweet honeydew, sweet strawberry, guava, mandarin oranges, pineapple, and dragonfruit. a big crackery presence in here as well. extremely juicy aroma, it makes your mouth water

t: follows the nose nicely for a DIPA. sweet tangerine and honeydew upfront. mango and sweet orange juice behind that. guava and strawberry with some kiwi as well. a touch of sweet malt and creamy orange sorbet. a touch of crackers and pepper to close

m: super fluffy, slightly sticky mouthfeel that is on the heavier side of medium

o: awesome NEDIPA. tropical, with some malt sweetness. nice mouthfeel and a kick ass aroma. dangerously drinkable for 8.2%

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.
