Curiosity Ninety TwoCuriosity Ninety Two
Notes: The Curiosity series has been our template for hoppy beer exploration for almost seven years. It enables us to try new things and to experiment with hops in a way that's outside the box of the processes developed for our core line-up. For Ninety Two, we took an approach to create a drier-than-is-typical finish for our IPA with all of the juicy characteristics of our house yeast paired with out innovative IPA construction. the result is a beer that is ultra tangy and citrus forward with notes of blood orange, sweet red grapefruit, tangerine, saccharine lemon, and a hint of yellow raspberry. The finish here is such a standout - dry yet appealingly citric, it literally makes our mouth water for the next sip - Enjoy!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy yellow with minimal head.
Good lacing.
Smell is light and a little tropical. The flavor follows. A little bitter finish. Super juicy and drinkable but there is enough finish to know you’ve got an ipa. Good beer
Can’t tell this is a double ipa at all

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA

Served in a teku

Gorgeous appearance. The hazy, pale straw yellow liquid was topped by a fluffy, inch-tall, bright white crown that fell to a thin, bubbly film. Drippy rings of lacing stuck all along the glass.

Citrus fruits came through strong in the aroma. Juicy orange notes were most apparent. Pleasantly sweet. Good dose of tangerine as well. Tree House’s signature crisp, dry yeastiness was also present. Bit of tropical fruitiness. Mango was noticeable. Some peach too. The beer turned sweeter and fruitier as it warmed.

The flavor profile was very similar to the nose. Citrus notes dominated. Tangerine came through big time. Fairly tart and tangy. Orange notes were also apparent. Both flesh and rind. Crisp and wheaty in the center. Slightly lemony. White grapefruit was noticeable on the back end. Dry, pithy and slightly bitter grapefruit rind-like notes trailed in the finish. Later, sweet peach and mango notes appeared.

Nice frothy, fluffy, medium bodied mouthfeel. The liquid contained a fine, fairly aggressive effervescence that turned slick and smooth on the palate.

Of the two Curiosity cans I purchased on my last visit to Tree House (Ninety One and Ninety Two), the former was definitely the superior offering. That said, this beer definitely grew on me as it warmed.

Really nice Curiosity series beer from Tree House. Loved the smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and the smell and look and taste were all excellent but not outstanding. Nice peach/pineapple fruit flavors, but just a hint of a sour aftertaste that I didn't love. If you got this from virtually any other brewery, you'd be impressed...

16 oz. can. Murky orange. Smells of big peach and some citrus. Tastes of passion fruit, tropical fruit, sweet chewy oaty malts, and an earthy back end. Medium heavy. Pretty good.

Pours a rather dull and nondescript pale orange in color with nearly two fingers of white head. Aroma is a bit muted but leads with the classic Tree House yeast character; it’s tropical with mango, melon, some passion fruit, juicy fruit gum, and some raspberry. The taste hits the same notes as the aroma bit with more intensity. The super tropical, melony, bubble gummy yeast is the star along with some raspberry notes and a moderate sweetness in the finish. Very smooth with a light-medium body and carbonation. Overall I really like this beer. This hit the classic flavor notes that I expect from Tree House and those made up for a lackluster appearance.

Picked up a can of this and shared with JLindros.

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

S - Aromas of creamy vanilla cake, citrus, orange zest. Nice juicy citrus backed up with some light malt sweetness and creamy vanilla notes. Very enticing.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with pleasant vanilla cake elemts and citrus, however, there is a fair amount of earthy spicy hops throughout. Not much in the way for citrus, just bitter spicy earthy hops.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, crisp, fluffy, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this was a rathe runderwhelming beer, loads of spicy earthy hops with a bit of vanilla cake. Wish this was more citrus forward.

Serving Type: Can

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a med light creamy head with med-ow retention, fair soapy lacing, super murky cloudy hazy med-dark orange color

Nose brings... again typical Tree House IPA, basically the same NEIPA that TH always puts out, but a slight added tropical note, citrus zest, doughy creamy vanilla malt,

Taste brings rich doughy malt, pithy with bready dough and cracker malt, loads more pith and some citrus, fair bitterness and doughy, some chalky minerals, med bitterness overall, but overall very typical Tree House IPA

Mouth is med bod, a touch creamy, med carb, touch of warming alcohol

Overall not bad, but very typical TH IPA, slight modifications
