BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An extremely liberally hopped APA. Tornado was crafted during the unfortunate events surrounding the June 1st, 2011 Brimfield Tornado. We created the beer in honor of the circumstances as we experienced them and luckily escaped the path by 1/2 mile. Tornado is loaded with notes of pine, tropical fruit, and citrus. At 5.6% alcohol, it's super refreshing.

Canned 5/26/17; drank 6/1/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dark orange appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A rough pour yielded a big off-white head; thick lace.

Banana, caramel & orange citrus notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & mild caramel flavors up front; banana & faint dry wheat notes on the finish.

A pleasant APA; kind of a diet Tree House, which can be a good thing in the right context (read: a hot summer day).
