Let The Light InLet The Light In
Notes: Let the Light In is an extra kettle and dry-hopped rendition of Force of Will. Drawing on the hyper-focus imparted by our current circumstances, and buoyed by the optimism and hope of days to come, Let the Light In is an extraordinary Double IPA featuring everything you love about our beer pushed to the limit of flavor and intensity.

It is an unabashed tropical fruit bomb with a level of flavor saturation we have yet to achieve in another beer - it's delicious.

Just over a year ago we wrote, "To share some words of comfort and optimism, it's moments like these that will make normalcy feel that much more beautiful and worth cherishing when we return to it." On the cusp of this moment, we are filled with hope and energy for the days ahead.

EDIT: Oh snap! Just realized this is review #1000! Had I known, I probably would have chosen a more fitting beer to review, but Let The Light In will work just fine.

L - oooohh DDH (basically) Force of Will? Pours a thick, greenish-hued mango juice. Looks viscous. Fluffy yellow-stained head that somehow also looks viscous.

S - herbal hop oils and marshamallowy orange stickiness. Smells saturated but at the same time crisp and restrained with bitterness. Lemon meringue pie and mango slices.

T - light stonefruit and apricot. Fruity, but not juicy. Summertime fruit flavors of peach, mango, tangerine, and strawberry. Features a certain astringency and bitterness that keeps this on the more traditional side of things. Far from the classic juice bombs you're used to with TH. Finishes dry and fresh.

F - silky smooth with the perfect amount of minimal carbonation. Hefty body and feels like it looks. No complaints here.

O - not quite the "unabashed tropical fruit bomb" that the tin makes it out to be, but it's certainly potent and jam-packed with hops. A little disappointing given the description and hype behind it, but it still stands on its own as a balanced hop-laden DIPA with great synergy between fruitiness and hoppiness.

Look - fantastic thick milky yellow color with a big white lasting head and sticky lacing
Smell - very tropical. Has a nice citrus orange with a peach pineapple mango undertone
Taste - citrus forward with a slight mango pineapple and pretty juicy and dank
Feel - thick slight creamy with a very light carb
Overall - really fantastic

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Tree House Brewery in Charlton for about twenty two dollars. My one hundred and fiftieth brew from these guys. This was very good, liked more than other recent DIPA TH releases.

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

S: Tropical fruit and citrus up front. Pineapple sticks out. Some light herbal undertones present as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of tropical fruit and citrus. Again, pineapple sticks out along with some orange. Low bitterness. Finishes with lingering citrus

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A super solid dry-hopped version of FoW. Incredibly easy to drink. Worth checking out

This is above average for treehouse. It’s a hitter for sure. Some of that bullshit chalkiness you’re gonna get from these fuckers but overall a pretty excellent, marginally balanced hop soup. Great nose, nice milkshakey mouthfeel followed with a chalk/hop bitterness finish. As the essay on the side suggests it is something greater than Force of Will. Not a food beer but a very excellent above average thick ass NEIPA
