Notes: Iridescent is one in a series of beers by Tree House exploring simple additions of fruit 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!

Brewed with peach purée, guava purée, coconut, and a blend of our favorite American hops, Iridescent pours a glowing orange color in the glass and emits flavors and aromas ripe peach, juicy guava, tropical coconut. Though absolutely loaded with flavor, it is never brutish or overbearing.

Iridescent wonderfully articulates the Tree House ideal of crafting beer that is packed with character while maintaining a well defined elegance and clear refinement. Iridescent is pleasing to drink all the way through the glass, time and time again.

We invite you to enjoy it and use it as a vessel to reflect upon what is important in this moment.

4.25/5  rDev -3.2%

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a finger of rocky white head. It dissipates rather quickly.

Nose is tropical notes, mainly pineapple, some mango, and pervasive peach nectar. This goes beyond your typical hop juiciness. This is sweet and fruit like. The peach puree provides a strong presence.

Taste follows closely. Pineapple, mango, peach all strong and up front. Sweeter than a normal DIPA. Fruit brightness takes the lead and hop bitterness sits in the back on this ride. Not too top heavy though. Almost as if the hops are providing the backbone. Cracker malt very mild, even further in the background.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with mild to medium carbonation. Not quite fluffy as most are used to with Tree House brews probably due to the inclusion of the puree.

Overall a solid Tree House brew. Unfortunately didn't get any coconut, but I didn't expect it to be star of the show. Fun, smooth, very drinkable, even at 8% ABV. Fruit IPAs can be a hit or miss and I definitely think this is on the good side of history, so to speak.

Pours hazy orange. Typically tree house. Dense. 1 “ head.
Smell is delicious. Hearing with tropical fruits. The peach and guava are subtle but they add so much dimension.
Very drinkable and crushable.
Finish is dry enough to keep the sweetness down. Typical of a well crates TH beer.
