Fruit Project - StonefruitFruit Project - Stonefruit
Notes: Utilizing the same hopping approach as Juice Project, and adding literal buckets of peach puree, Fruit Project Stonefruit is an immensely juicy, fruit-forward double IPA with deep hop saturation and minimal bitterness.

Pouring a vibrant opaque yellow color in the glass, Fruit Project puts forward aromatic and mouthwatering notes of overripe summer stone fruit, mango nectar, and fresh-squeezed orange juice - wow!

It is vibrant, decadent, and richly flavored while maintaining an airy and pleasing disposition. In short - whoa.

Cloudy, gray-hued orange with a fat finger of yellowed head. Good retention and thick rings of lacing.

Fruity aroma of apricot, plum and underripe white peach.

Peach ring candy and more underripe white peach dominate the taste. A touch of “green” herbal tropical something or other lends some balance, along with a hint of alcohol burn in the finish.

Full bodied and slick with tight carbonation.

Very tasty beverage. The peach flavors are interesting and layered in-and-of-themselves and that tropical/herbal note keeps things especially interesting.

16oz can dated 12/2/20.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch-plus of white fluff. Retention is persistent with plenty of sheeted lacing. Aromatics are bursting with peach, mango, and pear. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Tropical citrus awash on the palate. Peach, papaya, and mango. Finishes juicy and a bit warming with zero malt and a medium bitterness.

A: Poured from the can into a Tree House tulip glass. Body is hazy golden with a wisp of white head.

S: Nose isn't all that strong - hoppy and tropical fruity. Stone fruit and tropical fruit - juicy mango and papaya. Ripe peaches. Some oranged and tangerines. Overall sweet.

T: Really follows the nose, with loads of sweet, ripe peaches and sweeter tropical fruit: ripe melon/cantaloupe, papaya, mango. Hint of white grape skin provides some bitterness at the finish. Warmth from the 8.4% ABV is noticed.

M: Medium to full in body, creamy in feel. Juicy. Really juicy.

O: Very good. A little too sweet for me, but well done.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Tree House Willi Becher pint; canned 12/02/2020, code KEEP COLD, DRINK FRESH.
A: Pours an opaque, orange-yellow color with a one to two finger, foamy, white head, solid, more than rim retention, and complex, foamy rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of apricot, peach, nectarine, but also navel orange and pink grapefruit predominate with caramel, pine, and oregano notes. The nose is a fruity melange.
T: Semisweet. Flavors definitely mirror the nose with a real melange of the fruit and better defined caramel. Solidly, but very well balanced bitterness.
M: Medium to full bodied with solid carbonation. Creamy and smooth.
O: Fruit Project Stonefruit is a delicious and smooth Imperial IPA. Reminded me a touch of an Other Half offering.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Huge peach up front along with general stone fruit and some lighter citrus. Apricot also sticks out

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the peach and apricot along with general stone fruit and citrus. Some floral notes in there as well. Light-moderate bitterness. Finishes with lingering peach

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very good fruited DIPA that is super easy to drink. Stone fruit all the way, not surprisingly

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
12/02/20
Served in a Tree House teku

Big thanks to hopley for grabbing me this can.

Cloudy yellow ochre appearance. The nearly opaque liquid was topped by an inch-tall, super tight and creamy, off-white crown that dropped to a thick, frothy, lasting collar. Streaks and dots of lacing stuck along the glass.

The aroma was really hoppy and fruit forward. Stone fruit and tropical fruit notes dominated. Ripe peach came through strongest. Loads of juicy mango too. Guava was also apparent. Touch of orange and tangerine as well. Sweet overall but appropriately so.

The flavor profile was also fantastic and mimicked the nose to a T. Super fruity and bold. Nice melding of stone fruit, tropical fruit and citrus notes. Peach and apricot led things off. Mango was noticeable as well. Guava came through in the center. Citrus notes appeared as the beer moved along the palate. Tangerine followed by orange perhaps. Touch of grapefruit peel and tangerine rind-like pith on the finish. Moderate bitterness.

Outstanding soft, smooth, fluffy mouthfeel. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, fairly zippy effervescence that turned impossibly light and creamy on the palate. Signature Tree House.

Fruit-infused IPAs are always a bit gimmicky in my book, but this Stonefruit variant in Tree House’s Fruit Project series was really impressive. The peach was prominent yet not overdone, and the hops in the base beer contributed some fantastic additional fruity notes. I definitely look forward to trying the other beers in this series.

Pours like a glass of grapefruit, cloudy yellow, foamy dissipating head and nice lacing as it’s consumed
Aroma is strong ripe fruit as in peach, guava ,mango and orange rind
Taste is fruity and slightly bitter. Hoppy as well
Mouthfeel is smooth and full, low carbonation and a slightly bitter sticky lingering finish
Overall it’s a juice bomb it’s thick and easy drinking but not one I’d like to have more then one at a time. It’s really heavy, I liked it.
