Notes: You know that feeling. The feeling you get when you are on the Cape and the trees begin to get shorter and the sky begins to open up revealing the majesty of the bay in Sandwich, or the ocean along the National Seashore.
Inhabiting this space has reverberated with all of us over the years. We all have our Cape story. It's a part of us as much as the Red Sox or the Berkshires. Tree House is thrilled to become a tiny part of it. This American IPA is graced by a series of winter and spring photographs along our most beloved shoreline, capturing that feeling. Hello Cape Cod, indeed.

Hello Cape Cod is a single IPA brewed with Strata and Citra. It is our homage to the Cape - a welcome of sorts - and the most memorable single IPA we have made. 100% of the revenue will be donated to Sandwich Food Pantry, Animal Rescue League, Woodwell Climate Research Center, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, Cape Kid Meals, Cape Abilities, Cape Cod Military Support Foundation, and a hyper-local oyster cultivation fund. -- Please note we are not yet open in Sandwich!

16 oz can poured into a tulip pint glass on Easter Sunday. Pours a slightly cloudy light yellow with a gorgeous Tree House long-lasting head and great lacing. Aroma and flavor feature slightly sharp hops - citrus rind, grassy tropical fruit, wheat, and a hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is prickly and not as smooth/pillowy as most TH IPAs. Solid but underwhelming, and yes, I understand this is not a NEIPA.

Consumed 2/2/22

Yellow orange, very hazy, pours with a medium sized white head, fades to a couple wisps and a tiny collar
Loads of orange juice, fresh oranges, tangerines, ruby red grapefruit, some herbal hops, minor resinous/dank notes, leafy hops, some tropical fruit punch, slight mango, melon, underripe peach, above-average bitterness (for Tree House), pale malt base, hint of dough, mostly clean with lingering grapefruit
Medium body, smooth and a bit chewy, carbonation on the low side of medium

Ah yes, Cape Cod. I grew up in Massachusetts but more or less avoid the cape entirely because I do not like sitting in hours of traffic. This, on the other hand, is worth drinking for more than a few hours. It's not really surprising in any way, but it is all-around solid.

Month-old can poured into a belcher glass

Extremely muddy and murky coloring, like fresh-squeezed peach and pineapple juice. Small head of off-white bubbles with sticky rings of lacing.

Wonderful fruit medley on the nose, leaning toward stone and tropical, but plenty of citrus in the mix. Bubble gum, light grass initially, then more weediness and a little green onion. Not as potent as a lot of other TH hazies, but this is 6.7%.

Very juicy on the tongue, but with almost no sweetness. Nice bitterness and pith, leaving heavily toward citrus. Grassy and weedy once again. Maybe the slightest green note, but it’s not unpleasant at all and adds to the nice, sharp citrus pith. Similar to Green in its dryness from front to back. Goes down very easy.

Lighter-bodied than most TH hazies I’ve had (even at similar ABVs). But still silky smooth and nicely coating.

Rock solid beer all around, and definitely one I could consume multiple of in a sitting.

Pours a med-larger frothy 1.5 finger head with great retention and fair soapy lacing, hazy cloudy med orange color. Medium body, bitter with moderate carbonation. Taste more citrus, tangerine, clementine, a bit of cantaloupe melon as well, some generic tropical and papaya, more creamy doughy malt, flaked proteins and a little mineral note but not chalky, juicy citrus.

16oz can with an unreadable date.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch of white. Moderate retention and lacing. Candied citrus in the nose with bubblegum. Pear syrup, tangerine, peach, and pineapple. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Ripe, juicy tropicals on the palate with minimal malt or bitterness. Pear, peach, and pineapple. Finishes juicy and fairly dry.

Pours hazy, tan in color with one quarter inch head. Taste is orange juice, papaya and slight mango. Medium body, bitter with moderate carbonation. Makes for a good neipa, albeit average for Tree House.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Tree House in Sandwich for about sixteen dollars. My one hundred and fifty fourth brew from these guys. I really liked this, & welcomed the addition of an IPA that is not over 8%.

16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque deep orange color with a 2 finger fluffy off-white head. The head has pretty good retention, and leaves a crown of lacing around the top of the glass.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit, dank hops, and fresh berries.

The taste has that distinct Tree House flavor that gives you all the yeast ever, with a bit of strawberry and grapefruit. Finishes lightly dank and earthy.

The feel is medium bodied with lighter carbonation. Typical Tree House mouthfeel: Soft, creamy, dry.

Overall, this is a pretty good but fairly straightforward NEIPA. There's not a lot going on, but the dank notes from both the citra and strata hops add a unique earthy, weedy flavor not found in too many Tree House beers.

Canned 5/14/21. “Summer dreams” stamped on the bottom of the can

Here we are, the inaugural beer of Tree House’s new location in Sandwich! I wanted to go there when they opened, but unfortunately they reached their ordering capacity before I could order. Luckily they still had this one up in Charlton, and I plan on hitting up Sandwich next time

Pours a hazy orange gold with 3 fingers of white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves decent lacing

For a standard American IPA, this is surprisingly juicy in the nose, but it still strikes a nice balance. I’m picking up on aromas of creamy peach, papaya, pithy grapefruit, earthy hops, bready malt, white pepper, and orange rind

Tree House IPA’s usually have different expressions of aroma and taste, but the taste on this one is pretty much identical to the nose. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting creamy peach, orange rind, white pepper, bready malt, and light lemony hops. The swallow brings notes of pithy grapefruit, underripe melon, doughy malt, and earthy hops. Simple, but very effective

A light medium body pairs with gentle carbonation, resulting in a tingly yet smooth beer. Finishes almost entirely dry with a nice malt presence

It’s certainly not their best, but it’s a damn solid way to kick off a new location. I wonder how similar it is to the Western Mass beer
