Treehouse Bright

I love the label on this Mosaic – Hopped IPA by the world famous TREEHOUSE!

Final Rating: 4.62/5
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 16oz can into a snifter. Canned yesterday, purchased today at the brewery.

Pours a slightly hazy amber body with a 1 finger white head that reduces fairly quickly to leave a ring of foam and little lacing. This doesn’t look like the typical Treehouse orange juice bomb, might be the clearest I’ve had from them.

Mosaic hops are apparent on the nose – very floral, tropical, lightly grassy and maybe a little herbal. Tropical fruits, citrus and grapefruit aromas.

On the tongue are mind-blowingly fresh citrus, tropical fruit, creamy orange sherbet, light pine, mango, pineapple, followed by a solid and slightly sweet malt backbone, leaving a tinge of bitterness on the tongue. Medium carbonation and body, really drinkable.

“Bright” is a fitting name for this beer, the bursting flavors are well balanced and it’s really drinkable. One of my favorites from Treehouse so far.
