Notes: Brewed with peach purée and a blend of our favorite American hops, Radiant pours a glowing orange color in the glass and emits flavors and aromas ripe peach, mango, orange juice, and tropical fruit. It is extremely fruity, mostly as a function of our house yeast paired with a carefully refined process for brewing IPA; the peach here serves as icing on the cake of a memorable beer. It carries our irreplicable flavor profile in spades. Radiant is another beautiful entry in a series of beers by Tree House exploring simple additions of fruit, fruit syrups, and fruit powders to our well-refined Tree House IPAs. We invite you to enjoy it fresh and in the company of people who make you smile - Enjoy!

I think this beer is an awesome achievement. Fruit-infused beers are never my thing, but Treehouse manages to find just the right balance and type(s) of hops to pair with the peach to make it work. I love that it's not sweet. I drink it like wine, not beer.

The peach comes forward in the aroma and the bubbly mouthfeel brings you back to the summer - having that cold one in the backyard with good friends. Great control on the hops on both the immediate taste and after. Very much enjoyed this.

L - pours a light pink-yellow haze. Milky and thick-looking. Whitish head that takes on the colors beneath. Leaves a ring of lacing as it settles at a moderate clip.

S - pink grapefruit up front and out of the glass. Can smell this thing from across the room. Getting closer, we're overwhelmed with peach puree, fresh-sliced mango, and guava.

T - peach is the primary flavor here. Shocker, I know. Loads of juice. Bubblegum, ripe melon, and fruit salad. A touch wheaty, to add thickness along with lactose-esque creaminess. Feels saturated and chock-full of both hops and fruity adjuncts. Sweet and syrupy. Poolside candy as a kid.

F - almost feels laden with oats or lactose in its heft and creaminess. I think it's just the puree though. Thick, full, and suffocating. Just the way I like it.

O - like drinking a cloud that's saturated with mango peach juice and not, well, water. Imagine that rainstorm. This is a not a beer for your typical elitist craft beer snob. This is shameless juice. A guilty pleasure. And it is executed beautifully.

Canned 4/25/20, tasted 5/21/20. "Pairs well with dockside fishin'". A super-refreshing DIPA. The peach comes through in spades without adding any unpleasant flavor or aroma. A beautiful hazy grapefruit color with moderate head. A touch light in the body - could have had a bit more creamy richness to it. But this checks all the boxes for a delicious crushable fruit-forward DIPA. One of my favorites from Tree House, honestly - and makes me very curious to try their other fruit powdered series like Shimmer and Luminescent.

Consumed 4/13/20

Peachy orange with lots of gold, very hazy, pours with a small head that fades to a small collar
Loads of peach, both from the hops and the actual peach puree, like biting into a fresh peach, tangerine and orange juice, mango, pineapple, lightly herbal hops, very low bitterness, some pale malt sweetness and some tropical fruit sweetness
Medium body, smooth and chewy, low carbonation

I enjoy peaches, but the amount of peach crammed into this is absurd. You might as well drink a peach smoothie. But if you can't, this is a nice beer. Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches...

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
03/05/20
Served in a teku

A fluffy, inch-tall, bone white head topped the hazy, dull straw yellow body. The crown quickly dropped to a thick, frothy collar. Large craggily rings of lacing coated the glass and stuck around until the drink’s end.

The aroma was supper hoppy and fruity. Peach notes came through strong. Fresh white peach or peach purée perhaps. Ripe mango was also noticeable. Hint of dankness. Subtle citrus notes appeared later. As the beer warmed, the peach became more subtle and the citrus notes took over.

The flavor profile was also impressive. Peach was present here as well, but not quite to the extent in the nose. Big citrus notes up front. Loads of juicy orange and tangerine. Slightly tart and tangy. Wheaty and lemony in the center. White grapefruit appeared as the beer moved along the palate. Notes of grapefruit rind came through in the moderately pithy and bitter finish.

Nice fluffy mouthfeel. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, fairly zippy effervescence that turned slick and smooth on the palate.

Radiant is another nicely done DIPA by Tree House. The peach addition was rather subtle (I have drank many hoppy beers that were more peach forward from merely hops alone), but it perhaps added a bit more fruitiness and complexity.

Another great beer from Tree House. This had a very typical hazy orange color. It smelt very fruity with many different profiles. The taste was very tropical with a minor malty aftertaste. This definitely does not taste like it’s 8.0 ABV. Aftertaste has a slight peachy flavor which I was worried would mask the flavors of the beer at first, but it didn’t. Very enjoyable

16 oz. can. Pours murky orange with a big white head. Smells of peach, acidic fruit, and citrus. A little Tree House earthy yeast. Tastes of that yeast flavor right up front and throughout. Peach, tropical fruits, and less of the acidic fruits and citrus, but still there. Chewy malt profile. Moderate sweetness. Medium heavy. It's fruity. It tastes pretty good, though I don't know that I would have even known it had actual peach in it. Tastes a lot like their other beers.

Pours a pale orange in color with nearly two fingers of white head. Aroma is full of stonefruits with some mango, tropical fruits, and a light sweetness. Taste is full of peach, mango, and tangerine with chalky and lightly astringent notes in the middle and a light sweetness in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall a very tasty beer but the chalky and astringent notes knock it down for me.

Daughter acquired at the brewery back about a month ago and saved one. Canned 1/24/20. Poured from the colorful 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Opaque orange/green with a half finger thick white head which receded to thin wispy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Tropical fruit mix. Probably from the peach plus hops.

t: Follows the nose, impression of mild peach over a dense malt base and moderate hop bitterness which vanishes on the dry finish.

m; Fuller side of medium, great body and some carbonation tingle.

o: Normally I find most brews with any sort of fruit additives end up tasting more or less unpleasantly sour, but this seems beautifully balanced with just enough of peach puree added to give an even greater sense than usual of fruity softness for a TH IPA.

As many have asked, Where's the peach? Zero peach flavor in this batch (Canned 2/26/20), but was so solid in its base I still gave it high remarks.

Brilliantly bright, juicy new IPA from the great Tree House. Got this one fresh from the brewery. 3/5/20 date printed on can. Pours a darker muddled hazy orange color with some fluffy white head and nice coral-like rings of lingering lacing that lasted. Smells of fresh peach, melon, mango, papaya, pineapple, orange and lighter grapefruit and floral hops. Also creamy vanilla, malt and bread. Taste follows the nose, so creamy and smooth, juicy beyond belief. Higher ABV was incredibly well hidden. Like drinking citrus-loaded juice! Smooth, creamy, pillowy-soft mouthfeel (honestly I find it hard to use this adjective for any other brewery's offerings) that went down too easily. Perfect amount of carbonation. Just out of this world.

Can date 1/24/20.

A - Orange gold opaque with dense thin lacing.

S - Zesty peach and orange.

T - Zesty peach dominates from start to finish with some pith. Some orange, mango, and citrus surfaces but predominantly pithy peach.

M - Thick and a little frothy with a dry back end of the tongue.

O - Solid. 'Like other Tree House D-IPA's better, but still worth a look.

Picked-up three cans from Tree House Brewery in for $5.05. My eighty second brew from these guys. This is very good, would definitely get again. Can art is a bit dodgy.

Pours hazy, gold in color with one third inch head. Taste is peaches and mango. Slightly bitter with super sweet finish, medium bodied and moderate carbonation. The beer is standard Tree House fare until the finish which has a super sweet note similar to Super Treat. It is this finish that makes me want to get it again

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy pale golden hue with a thin half finger white head that fades to leave light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of generic citrus, bright sweet malts. Almost burnt hops. Not getting any peach whatsoever here. No peach, no peach syrup, no generic stone fruit pits. Nothing.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with lots of creamy oats and vanilla. There are flashes of oranges and vanilla, orange creamsicle like flavour. The peach is more generic than on the nose, the finish has tons of peaach candies and gummies well after swallowing. Not a fresh peach or peach jam beer. Super generic.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little creamy and fluffy, alcohol hidden nicely.

O - Overall this was a decent enough beer, however, it was SUPER generic. Not getting any legitimate peach, or at least no more peach than hops can already provide. Super disappointing.

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a med pasty white fluffy head with moderate retention, fair soapy lacing, super hazy cloudy orange color

Nose brings loads of typical Tree House curiosity, plenty of citrus hops, generic citrus, maybe a touch of stone fruit if you push it, when I really dig deep I get a touch of peach pit, creamy base malts and a little mineral, flaked malt/wheat almost lactose like

Taste brings more lactose like creamy doughy flaked wheat and oats maybe, loads of that creamy flaked sugar base, cereal grain, but hops are more generic Tree House, some generic citrus, a little tropical like, a bit of canned peach and stone fruit, somewhat generic tropical like, pithy and chalky, drier finish but some bitterness and a bit flat

Mouth is med bod, a bit creamy, medium-high fluffy carb, no real alcohol

Overall meh, very typical Tree House without much peach, is there really fruit in this, or did the peach come from stone fruit style hops? Not much going on, and otherwise just generic Tree House as they all start to taste the same. This was just sad for Tree House.
