Notes: The Big One is our first canned Triple IPA.

It is brewed and dry-hopped with a tremendous amount of hops roughly approximating the Haze hop bill. It tastes like orange juice, tropical fruit, and mango with a robust and supple mouthfeel.

We brewed it for you--Enjoy!

Big One is the first canned triple IPA from Tree House Brewing. It currently has a score of 95 on BA, a world-class beer. Big One pours a hazy golden color with a white head that leaves behind a nice lacing. On the nose, it has a strong hop aroma with notes of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. The flavor is just as impressive as the aroma, with a well-balanced blend of hop bitterness and sweet maltiness. The hops provide a noticeable bitterness that is counterbalanced by a smooth, bready malt base. The finish is clean and crisp, leaving a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. Big One has a medium to full body that is coating and satisfying on the palate. The carbonation level is moderate, adding a gentle fizziness to the mouthfeel. Overall, I highly recommend Big One Triple IPA from Tree House Brewing. It is a well-crafted beer that will appeal to both hop-heads and those who prefer a more balanced flavor profile. This is a beer that you won't regret trying.

16oz can courtesy of Roguer. Canned on October 13, 2022. A TIPA after a Monday? Could be dangerous.

Poured into the glass, this was kinda unappealing looking. Turbid, colored somewhere between mustard and orange, with a very weak looking bubbly, beige colored head.

Big, sweet melon and stonefruit nose, in that order.

Big, sweet, and uncompromising in the flavor department, with a lot of heat and a citric acid burn on the back end.

Fairly creamy mouth feel.

This kind of beer is definitely got its fans, and there are a lot of them. I'm just not one of them though. It's just not my thing. It's a bit too sweet and with a bit too much heat for me, even accounting for it being a triple ipa. My thanks to Roguer for this. I was very happy to try it. It's just not my jam.

Had a single draft at Tree House in Sandwich for about eight dollars. My two hundred and seventy seventh brew from these guys. Solid brew, not too boozy.

Traded for this last night here in town as one of my good friends made a run up to Tree House recently. It's beers like this that make beer enjoyable as this was quite complex and deep underneath it's slick and juicy surface, as it drank quite nicely for something so strong!

Like most beers of this style that I've had, this poured a muted goldenrod as it was plenty hazy and topped off with a sufficient, dense foam. A ton of beautiful and dense rings of layered lacing was left behind as I worked my way through this as it easily covered a majority of my pint glass. Loads of dank melon, cantaloupe, ginger spice, and exotic hops in the nose as the taste closely followed suit. Ripe lime, citrus and tropical fruit zest, and acrid grapefruit could be felt on the palate once this fully warmed up as this had a grassy and herbal undertone that gave this a nice amount of earthiness and spice to complement the fruit flavors. Overripe fruit and lemon zest lingered in the aftertaste as this was quite smooth given the amount of hops and heft present.

Canned on 8/11 with "IT'S A BIG DEAL" written above it, this was just like the label in the sense that there was a lot going on but was quite coherent when viewed from afar. Never really felt the orange juice or mango with the exception of the juicy feel that this had, as the carbonation and balance were a bit subdued relative to the tang and twang that ultimately stuck with me. Once again, this was a winner from Tree House that I'd easily reach for again!

The triple IPA has a sharp edge to it. It rolls off the tongue like pop rocks of flavor and hopiness. It’s delicious and sipable. I did not get a strong smell from it but it looks exactly how it tastes: hazy and juicy.

Standard hazy Treehouse look, a little on the brighter yellowish brown side. Nice white head that falls decently quick, but leaves a nice film on top and good lacing on the glass. Dank tropical nose, with a big whiff of hop resin. A little sticky booze smell in the background, but mostly hidden by the tropical notes. Taste follows, dank, resiny, orange lemon grapefruit mango. Much more noticeable booze in this one than a lot of TH offerings, but it's nice and doesn't detract from the hoppy resin that is the star of the show. Creamy mouthfeel. Dangerous

Two months old. Can to wine glass.

L: Pours a full and hazy yellow with a fluffy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. No floaters.

S: Fresh citrus fruits. Mainly orange, grapefruit and lemon. Not as intense as expected.

T: Also orange and grapefruit, but rather lime instead of lemon. Everything tastes riper and sweeter than it smells. Mango is also there. Hoppy and grassy. Slightly zesty, slightly bitter.

F: Very full and juicy. Slightly boozy. Still quite soft. Medium carbonation.

O: Very smooth and flavorful TIPA that could easily be mistaken for one of their higher ABV DIPAs. Great beer.

Pours ultra hazy, gold in color with one half inch head. Taste is big candied peach and honeydew melon. Heavy body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter. I can feel the hop oil on my tongue. A little bit of Very Gggreennn a bit of Haze. Liking this one. A sipper but pleasantly surprised.

L - mango juice out of the can with a dense, bone white head. Solid sunset haze in color. Not much in the way of gradient or light penetration.

S - fresh bubblegum and papaya up front. Peach creamsicle adds a touch of vanilla before the syrupy hops flow in. Green onions and a heaping helping of the dank. Smells like it's about to erupt with flavor.

T - potent pop of peachy punch. Mango and peach are at the front of the line. Tropical fruit salad complete with cream cheese dressing. Saturated juiciness packed with an almost overwhelming amount of classic TH flavor. At the same time, spicy zest floats alongside every step of the way, with that oniony dank going tit for tat with tha juice. Peppery and tangy. Great balance. Yin and yang. FInish is mildly dry and very spicy. Demands another sip to keep that sweet, sweet juice flowing.

F - supple is right. Tree House's usual soft carbonation and peach fuzz feel gets an extra dose of syrupy slickness. Velvet smooth and provides a great backbone for the intensity behind this beer.

O - definitely getting the Haze vibes. Prominent peach dominates the overall flavor profile in the best way possible. If there was ever such a thing as a guilty pleasure Tree House beer, this would be it.

S - Aroma is mango, orange and pineapple.

T - The taste is mango, peach, papaya, orange and a lingering bitter hop bite.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - Top notch TRIPA. Big sweet tropical fruits throughout. Pretty easy drinking for being 9.4%.

16oz tall boy can. can dated: canned on 6/16/22.

poured into durobar charente.

Appearance: Hazy and opaque golden yellow bodied beer. Bone white head stacks up tall with good head retention. Eventually drops down to ring around the glass with lots of lacing clinging to the glass.

Smell: Big time tropical fruits lead out the aroma. balanced dankness. mango orange juice.

Taste: Juicy tasting mango orange juice. Moderate to full dankness levels that throws off really heavy "Mary Jane" vibes; dirt, grassy, marijuana type dank flavors. This flavor is a bit much for the tropical and citrus notes present in the TIPA. I want more tropical citrus flavors to balance the dankness more. Wishing that the actual taste was closer to the aroma of this TIPA.

Mouthfeel: this is the fluffiest and lightest TIPA that exists. Soft and delicate texture with over the top creamy fluffiness of this TIPA.

Overall: this might be my first TIPA from treehouse. The dankness really upset the balance of this beer. I can taste the juiciness of the tropical and citrusy hop bill here, but the dankness needs to be dialed back. The aroma and texture of this beer are impressive. Can't say I have ever tasted an New England TIPA with such heft in the dankness department. The fact that the texture of Big One is perfect kept this beer above average and enjoyable for my tastes.

16oz can dated 6/16/22.

Pours cloudy orangy-yellow with a persistent head and plenty of lacing. Pungently hoppy in the nose with candied orange, mango, peach, pineapple, and white grape. Medium bodied with a soft, almost tacky mouthfeel. Ripe tropicals on the palate with minimal malt and a balancing bitterness. Peach, pineapple, mango, and orange. Finishes fairly dry with a moderate bitterness, lingering tropicals, and a boozy hint.

16 oz can poured into a tulip pint glass. Pours a thick and hazy/turbid yellow/orange with a moderate off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma and flavor pack a pungent hop punch, with lots of peach, papaya, and mango along with citrus and a huge malt bill. It is on the sweeter side but not cloying. Mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, almost-but-not-quite syrupy, and slightly boozy. It's a big and very successful (T)NEIPA.
