The snow is liable to fall any day here in New England, leaving the landscape blanketed in a peaceful and comforting embrace of white.

Pouring an opaque yellow color in the glass, Bomb Cyclone carries intense notes of citrus, coconut, guava gummies, and strawberry bubble gum. There is a pleasant bitterness on the finish that beautifully entices your next sip.

An extra kettle and dry-hopped rendition of our winter seasonal Snow, Bomb Cyclone only comes around once a year, and we will relish this beer the way we do a deep and fluffy snowfall in the dead of winter - enjoy!

Bright orange haze. Nose is red berries and bubblegum. Taste is bright and tropical. Fizzy strawberry, sweet citrus juice, grapefruit rind, and bubblegum. Velvet mouthfeel. Finishes a little dry and more bitter than you'd expect. Super drinkable.

Pours opaque yellow gold with a fluffy creamy white foam head. Smells like fresh citrus, orange, grapefruit, strawberry, coconut, vanilla, cedar, pineapple, mango, guava, hints of bready wheat malt, with dank earthy herbal floral pine. Tastes like a coconut vanilla milkshake, bright strawberry, guava gummies, grapefruit, orange citrus, lime, lemon, nectarine, pineapple, mango, hints of bready wheat malt, some cedar wood, with dank earthy herbal floral pine. Feels medium plus bodied, creamy smooth with moderate low carbonation. Overall a real nice DIPA.

Bomb Cyclone from Tree House Brewing pours a hazy, golden orange color that is typical of New England-style IPAs. The beer has a fluffy, white head that lingers throughout the drinking experience, leaving behind thick lacing on the glass. The appearance of the Bomb Cyclone is inviting and visually appealing, with a beautiful combination of colors and textures. The haziness of the beer is a nod to the juiciness and hop profile of the beer, which is a hallmark of New England-style IPAs. The aroma of Bomb Cyclone is intensely fruity, with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine, it is very complex and layered. The front of the nose is dominated by juicy fruit notes, mango, pineapple, and passionfruit. These fruity aromas are complemented by citrusy notes of grapefruit and lemon, as well as a slight hint of pine. As you take a deeper whiff, the aroma becomes even more complex, with hints of earthy and floral undertones. I detect a subtle spiciness in the aroma, which adds a unique twist to the overall profile. The aroma of Bomb Cyclone is incredibly pleasant and inviting. It has a strong, fruity character that is balanced by a subtle hop bitterness, making it a highly drinkable beer. It has a very bright and fresh aroma, making it a refreshing and flavorful IPA. When it comes to taste, Bomb Cyclone is a well-balanced beer that is both sweet and bitter. The initial sip is dominated by a burst of juicy flavors, including grapefruit, mango, and orange, which is followed by a pleasant bitterness that lingers on the palate. The bitterness is not overpowering and is balanced by a subtle sweetness that makes the beer easy to drink. The mouthfeel of Bomb Cyclone by Tree House Brewing is creamy, smooth, and well-balanced. The moderate carbonation level and the use of oats and wheat give it a soft and velvety texture, while the abundance of hop flavors makes it juicy and fruity. Overall, Bomb Cyclone is an outstanding beer that lives up to Tree House Brewing's reputation for excellence. It is a must-try for any IPA lover and a beer that is definitely worth seeking out.

Poured from a 16oz can 01/18/23 to a Nonic at fridge temperature.
An opaque glowing apricot body sits below a pure white head. Lacing is quite nice.
This is a dank smelling beer.
Taste is more citrusy with a dank musty finish. There is a pretty sweet start of apricot and guava, dank middle, dry finish, apricot/guava returns in the afterglow.
Mouthfeel is medium to large with good carbonation.
I liked this, but it's not as good as other TH NEIPAs.

Pours a very hazy pineapple color with a creamy white head that coats the glass in lacing snowflakes. Gorgeous hazy. The nose is dank exotic citrus notes, including ripe oranges, guava, and passion fruit, some berry notes, and a subtle creamy oat aroma.

The oranges and guava are forward on the taste and absolutely delicious, joined by strawberry and creamy oat flavors that work exceptionally well, especially with the full, vibrant mouthfeel.

There’s a reason that Tree House is the “go to” hazy brewery for so many beer nerds, and this beer is yet another example of their prowess in that space.

2 months old. Can to wine glass.

Look: Pours a full hazy yellow with a foamy white head leaving a good amount of lacing. No floaters.

Smell: Citrusy with notes of lime and grapefruit paired with a subtle orange sweetness.

Taste: A fruit basket with ripe citrus fruits (here again orange, grapefruit and lime), strawberries, white peach and grapes on the one hand, resinous, even piney notes on the other hand. Medium (bubblegum) sweetness, slightly zesty and a bitter finish.

Feel: Full and juicy. Medium carbonation. Very smooth.

Overall: This is a great beer. Very complex, yet so smooth and drinkable. The typical citrusy TH notes are very well paired with other, sweeter fruits that you wouldn’t expect to be combined. However, they feel like a perfect match as they are perfectly balanced.
