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.

16oz can.

Cloudy gold with moderate retention and light lacing. A mild blend of pear, peach, melon, and orange in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy, soft mouthfeel. Unripe peach with pear and light grapefruit on the palate. Medium bitterness with zero malt. Finishes with lingering tropicals and fairly dry.

A nice, fruity pale ale but nothing too remarkable.

Pours hazy orange yellow in color with one inch head. Taste is orange juice, mango, and orange rind. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, juicy, and slightly bitter. Loads of flavor for such a low abv. Will get this again.
