Notes / Commercial Description:
A Blonde Ale brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops, a New Zealand varietal that melds beautifully with a simple bill of pale malts. This is a true "session beer" and one that does not make any compromises. It has a delicate bouquet of passionfruit and a slight lemon flavor that will surely quench your thirst.

Poured from the 16oz can into a Tree House tulip glass. Believe it or not, this beer sat in my fridge for about a month because I never made time to do a proper review.
L - Hazy yellow, light gold color. One finger thick white head settled to a skim coat over the full surface of the beer and left lacing along the glass. The glass looks like the sun when held near a light source.
S - Bright aroma full of dank hops, bready. Aroma subsided as the head settled out.
T - Sweet as it hits your tongue. The bready flavor is present. The hops are definitely saying hello, but they aren't too powerful, and bitterness is low. The description mentions lemon and passfruit flavors, and I definitely agree with that.
F - Light and refreshing. Carbonation is appropriate. The tart fruitiness leaves a bit of a bitterness after the swallow.
O - This offering hits the mark as a light and refreshing pale ale. The lemon and passionfruit combine to give it just the right amount of tartness to make this an excellent summer session beer.

A nice golden yellow hazy color with a. White head that sticks and leaves lumpy lacing
S big passion fruit and lemon, orange, peach, tangerine, pineapple juice, light white pepper, it definitely has that creamy treehouse presence
T also big passion fruit, peach, tangerine, papaya, lemon zest, little bit peppery, almost a kind of cream/umami flavor in there too that all treehouses beers have, I'm assuming it's from the high calcium content of the brewing water
M light creamy mouthfeel, alc xovered, aftertaste is lemon peel and bready light malt
O definitely a tree house beer, not the best one but damn good
