Curiosity Eighty NineCuriosity Eighty Nine
Notes: The Curiosity Series has been our template for hoppy beer exploration for almost seven years. It enables us to try things, and to experiment with hops in a way that’s outside the box of our core line-up. This batch was brewed with a complex blend of American hops to learn about and to enjoy the character of new lots from our 2019 hop selections. The result is heavily citrus forward, with notes of tangerine, tangy tang, orange marmalade, and orange creamsicle. It’s a great one, friends - enjoy!

L - I don't hate the new dinosaur theme. Pours a glowing dark orange with pinkish fringes. Oily, squishy head that jiggles as I type.

S - smells fresh and ripe with stone fruit and banana. Pithy peach, mild onion, and lime. Saturating juicy fruit.

T - thick marshmallowy jam with flavors of orange, apricot, and pineapple puree. Fruit-forward candy sweetness, with just enough dry pith to keep you coming back for more. A bit grapey in the middle with chewy peach cream. Tangy toward the end, with a finish not unlike burning your mouth with hot coffee in terms of zesty numbness. Sticky and bitter at the bitter end.

F - full and fluffy. Very satisfying creaminess.

O - on the fluffier side of Tree House fare. Saturated and juicy, but more on the limey side of things, kinda like Other Half. Irresponsibly drinkable, a touch sweet, and overall nicely balanced.

Picked-up a single can at Tree House Brewery in Charlton for $5.05. My ninety third brew from these guys. One of my favorite of the curiosities. Like the dinosaur too.

Pours ultra hazy, caution light yellow in color with half inch head. Taste is orange juice, orange creamsicle, peach, lemon, and lime. Very citrusy--especially in the nose. Medium bodied, slightly bitter, with moderate carbonation. One of the better recent Curiosities. Will try to get this again.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a thick one finger white head that fades to lave nice lacing and thin wisps.

S - Aromas of nice bright spritzy lime and citrus, really pleasant and bright.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with slightly bright citrus, good bright citrus oil on the finish. There are pleasant melon and spritzy citrus.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, fluffy, bright, creamy.

O - Overall this was a very solid dipa with lovely bright citrus. Really pleasant juicy citrus with pleasant melons.
