Our IPA brewed with Northwest American hops prominently featuring Chinook! A pungent aroma gives way to a delicate beer loaded with hop flavor.

pours out a hazed golden orange color with a dense and creamy bright white head. slightly less dense haze than other TH offerings, a bit less murky but still haze for days.

aromas of melon, peach, tangerine, honey, green resin, dankness, mango, grapefruit, hint of pine and some bready malts. on palate is orange, honey soaked mango, pithy grapefruit, peach, spicy and slightly resinous hops, plastic hop saturation, very mellow green pine note ... cant understand the reviews that describe this as piney bc for me that was definitely not the case. very soft overall and a nice fluffy texture to it. absolutely excellent brew.

A: Pours a beautiful cloudy orange w two finger head that leaves lacing every which way.

S: cantelopue with lots of citrus squeezed on it, plus plenty of pine.

T: pine stronger than in the nose, so is the citrus--most citrusy TH beer I've had--but still plenty of melon.

F: medium body, plenty of carbonation, lots of, well, sap at the end.

O: Do these folks make a less than excellent beer? Been drinking this for a week. First can was shortly after a growler of Haze, and seemed a little pallid by comparison, but drinking it on its own, it's great. Worth seeking out, for sure.

Pours a turbid, dull orange in color with a finger+ of uneven white head that leaves behind sporadic lacing. Aroma is pine, some light caramel malt, genetically tropical fruits, and a bit of the cantaloupe that to me is the House flavor. Taste is pine upfront and an overripe tropical fruit note that I get from all Tree House beers after a month. I'm surprised to find it in this beer since it was canned a week ago; it's not really a flavor that I enjoy much. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty solid beer that grows on me a bit as it warms. This might actually be my least favorite Tree House beer but it's still above average in the grand scheme of things.
