Tree House Brewing Company AAAlterrr Ego! – American IPA at 6.8% ABV

Tree House Brewing Company AAAlterrr Ego! American IPA at 6.8% ABV (Trade – thanks Norm!, 473 ml, packaged on 20-Nov-2018, acquired 21-Dec-2018, reviewed 26-Dec-2018)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with one fat finger of rocky off-white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, dank pine, tropical & stone fruits, caramel. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (9/10) Medium slightly creamy body, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter finish. (4/5)

Definitely among the best I’ve had by Tree House. It verges on a pure NE-style, but with an emphatic bitter in the finish. On the one hand, I wish I’d tried the base Alter Ego previously for comparison, but on the other the brewer notes make it sound like this is actually a far superior beer. Really good stuff and big thanks to Norm for the special delivery! (17/20)

8.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
