Pouring a gorgeous opaque yellow color in the class, On The Fly presents with notes of orange juice, ripe mango, dank peach, and blended tropical fruit cocktail. Enjoy!

I am delving into another Treehouse beer, On the Fly. The artwork on the can is stupendous. The beer is 44 degrees and served in a tulip glass. The pour of the beer created a marvelous bright white three-fingered head. The retention of the head is excellent, leaving lots of lacing on the glass. The color is straw yellow and golden charting around SRM 6. This beer is hazy and beautiful.

The initial aromas in the beer are citrus, bread crust, and floral esters. Nosing further in the glass, I detect pine resin, pineapple, mangos, peaches, herbal, straw, and a honey-like sweetness.

The flavors in the beer are pineapple, mangos, guava, peaches, citrus, grapefruit, bready, dankness, crackers, herbal, floral esters, a hint of pine, and white pepper.

The mouthfeel of the beer is creamy and astringent.
The body of the beer is medium, medium carbonation, and a long finish.

This IPA is a delight. It is not entirely a NEIPA, but close enough. The beer is well made and shows the deft hand Treehouse uses in brewing beer. I am grateful that I had a chance to enjoy this beer.

Smell is very fruity. Tropical stuff that my palate isn’t refined enough to distinguish but it’s not typical citrus. Taste follows suit with some resin like hop flavors but very little bitterness. Mostly sweet tropical juice flavors and a creamy thick mouthfeel.

Poured into a can glass yields a thick cloudy dirty blond color, one finger head and medium lacing
Aroma of peach, mango, pineapple and orange rind. Dank smelling
Taste is outrageous, an explosion of tropical fruits a hint of sweetness
Mouthfeel is downright chewy, full smooth, thick creamy feel. Low carbonation. Finishes prickly on the tongue and sticky on the roof of the mouth. There is a clementine rind note at the end also
Overall it’s a total typical Tree House juice bomb, really hard to drink slow

Potent and borderline absurdly dry-hopped, orange, tangerine, and clementine juice, grapefruit flesh, some pith, dank and woodsy, green and raw hops. Taste features dank mango and lime contrasting upfront, with bready/doughy malts and under ripe papaya accenting the foundation; a hit of herbaceous, boozy hop acidity peaks over the mid-palate.

Poured from a can. Hazy, amber yellow with good head retention and lacing. Smell is dank and floral with orange juice and slight pineapple. Flavors are similar, but more tropical fruit than citrus. Well balanced with the floral hop bitterness.
Finishes slightly dry. Medium bodied and juicy with good carbonation presence. A very easy drinking example of the style from a brewery known for quality. Would reach for another.

Tall can with "2/17/21" and "Keep calm, I'm fine, everything is fine" stamped on the bottom.

Great looking TH juiced up NEIPA classic pour. Supports a large and lasting forever khaki cap. As the cap recedes, thicker strands of lace are left all over the glass.

Sweet tropical fruit notes all over the nose.

Ripe and tasty pineapple, mango, kiwi and lime all over the palate...simply delicious....just more world class brew from the wizards at TH....highly enjoyable...well worth seeking out...go get some and savor each sip...I know I did

Canned 2/17/21. "Keep calm, I'm fine, everything is fine" stamped on the bottom of the can

Here's one that I've been quite excited to try for quite some time. Not that it's necessarily the highest rated NEIPA from Tree House, but I'm excited by the reviews I've read and it seems like it'll be a bit different from their standard fare. This beer is also the namesake of their beer-to-go operation currently in place during COVID

Pours a hazy golden yellow with 3 fingers of soapy white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves decent lacing

As I was saying, this seems a little different in the nose, quite dank while also remaining tropical. I'm picking up on aromas of orange juice, dank oily hops, caramel malt, fresh cut pine, and pink grapefruit

The taste is also decidedly more bitter than others, but that is not to say it's very bitter. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting orange juice, bright mango, oily hops, and crisp bready malt. The swallow brings notes of pithy grapefruit, doughy malt, creamy peach, dank weed, and sweet cantaloupe

A medium body pairs with mild carbonation, resulting in a silky beer that goes down very easy. Finishes neutral between dry and sticky

As always, a good beer from TH. It definitely calls back to old school, slightly more bitter NEIPAs, but keeps it current as well
