BEER INFO

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

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our IPA brewed with Northwest American hops prominently featuring Chinook! A pungent aroma gives way to a delicate beer loaded with hop flavor. Soft notes of grapefruit, pine, pineapple, and young mango give way to a dry finish making this one hard to put down. We find Sap to be one of our most complex and intricate IPAs - We love it dearly!

Canned on 16Feb 2016 and enjoyed 17Feb 2016. Poured into a Duvel Tulip.
L: Dark, burnt golden yellow... completely opaque. Dark just to the eye, but shining a bright light behind it makes it glow a glorious gold. I’d use it at a nightlight if I didn’t drink it so quickly. Fluffy meringue head leaving sticky lacing.
S: This one differs from the other TH offerings I’ve had (Julius, Green, Alter Ego) in that it is unapologetically hoppy without the dominating tropical fruit salad nose; a wonderful change of pace when you’re in the mood.
T: Thick piney hops, sweet malt and pineapple on the finish.
F: Light and bright… a smooth enjoyable delight.
O: I love this beer… I could drink it all night. I truly believe its ratings are lower because it’s not the fruit bomb that other TH offerings are. I’m in for the 3hr drive to TH anytime this is available.

This beer pours a cloudy vibrant orange color just a bit darker than orange juice. Head is 2 fingers and bright white that eventually settles to a thin cap and also leaves a ridiculous amount of lacing. Smell is very piney, but still so fruity. Honestly like no other IPA I've ever had. It is like a citrus fruit salad made up of a copious amount of grapefruit, lemon and orange that is just engulfed by a forest of Christmas trees and crammed into a glass. Taste is the same with some nice bitterness. Feel is light, very soft and juicy, but also resinous. Overall this is world class and like no other beer I've tried. Absolutely the softest, juiciest piney/bitter IPA I've ever had. I will go a step further and say that Sap is the best beer I've ever had!
