Force Of WillForce Of Will
Notes: Force of Will is a Tree House Double IPA brewed with tropical blend of American hops propelled by a honed-in process paired with our house yeast.

Every so often a beer comes through the brewery that marks a seminal moment of progress in both spirit and outcome; in 2019, this beer was Very GGGreennn. So far in 2020, Force Of Will marks a heightened standard across the board for us.

Drawing on the hyper-focus imparted by our current circumstances, the mouthfeel, body, hop density, and flavor-saturation of Force of Will are tremendously amplified.

Pouring a glowing orange color in the glass, it carries a richness and juiciness about it that finds a new gear in our innovative IPA repertoire. Notes of heavy citrus, peach nectar, mango puree, and pineapple juice grace the palate, carried by a supple and full mouthfeel. It is a hopeful beverage , indeed - Enjoy!

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Tree House goblet; canned 06/03/2020, code DRINK A BEER, SHARE SOME LOVE.
A: Pours an opaque, lightly aged brass (amber-orange) color with a one to two finger, foamy, lemon chiffon head, solid rim plus retention, and complex, if not actual rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of caramel, tangerine, pineapple, barley grain, and pine. Complex and enjoyable, like a Werther's candy.
T: Sweet. Flavors definitely mirror the nose, although much lighter on the fruit, with caramel, barley, cocoa, and mead evident. Barley gets stronger on the nose and palate as it warms. Strong, but exceptionally well balanced bitterness. Kudos on that balance.
M: Full bodied with solid carbonation. Booziness subtle, take your time.
O: Force of Will is a gorgeous concoction that hits all the right notes for me: fruity nose, check, caramelize barley, check, balanced bitterness, check, balanced bitterness, check, full body, check. It will require force of will not have another (that and the realization that I need to work tomorrow).

4.42/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a can (no date I could find) into a pint glass

L: creamy darker orange with a thick white head that isn’t going anywhere a few minutes post pour. Some big bubbles in that foam. Great thick lacing, nearly Very Green quality

S: very smooth, overripe tropical fruit and citrus. Orange, peach, pineapple, mango lead beautifully. Slight bitterness. Great aroma, not nearly the “bomb” I expected based on other TH brews but very good

T: everything from the nose flows through on the swallow, very smooth and flavorful. Orange again leads, moving to a great peach/mango/“tropical” note. Nice bitterness (hops plus citrusy grapefruit) on a medium-long finish. Incredibly drinkable, like most every TH IPA I’ve had

F: smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, again incredibly drinkable

O: a really good IPA, very flavorful with the drinkability what really sets it apart. Nice bitterness that’s missing from most NEIPAs these days. Doesn’t dethrone Very Green in my book but a delicious beer regardless

L - another high praise beer. I loved VGGG, so let's see what's up. Pours a murky, turbid dark orange, but with a pink mango hue. Solid color in the glass.

S - forceful aroma with a surprisingly resinous oniony vibe. Soft, muddled bubblegum and overripe papaya combine with thick peach candy and orange vanilla. Hints of TH's fruited IPAs as far as fruit saturation goes.

T - peach puree up front; thick and creamy. Peppery hop bitterness creeps in and leaves a rindy, oily, residue behind. Pineapple? Vanilla and mango creamsicle. Pungent and warming. Zesty pink grapefruit and a minty fresh herbal crispness to finish. Dry and tangy.

F - full, sludgy, and thicc af. Absolutely chock full of hops. Mealy and mouth-coating.

O - errs on the bitter side of TH IPAs. Force of Will is packed with flavor and hops, imparting a potent grassy bitterness complemented by overripe rindy flavors and sensations. It's aggressive and leaves my mouth numb.

Previously canned as Very G G Greennn

Pours Bright opaque orange with a thick fluffy white head that dissipates into soapy lacing

Big aromas of peach nectar, pineapple, mango and citrus

Taste is full on juice bomb with notes of peach. mango and a pineapple finish

Full rich mouth feel flavors all come through with an astringent dry prickly finish. medium to low carbonation

over all a really good beer and an excellent representation of a New England DIPA

Pours super hazy, orange gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is pure juice: orange, pineapple, and peach. Super smooth, slightly bitter, medium carbonation, with heavy body. Tastes like a Very Green/Juice Machine mix. Their best dipa in a long long time. Delicious. Will look for this again.
