Tree House Brewing Company Haze – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8.2% ABV

Tree House Brewing Company Haze American Double / Imperial IPA at 8.2% ABV (Trade – thanks Norm!, 473 ml, packaged on 21-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: peaches, orange juice, caramel, earth, light dank. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (9/10) Medium slightly creamy body, moderate carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter warming finish. (5/5)

Probably the most impressive thing about this generally impressive beer is the sheer drinkability, with a lovely blend of stone fruit and citrus on a creamy body. Alcohol is distant and almost unnoticeable except for the mildly warming and very well-balanced finish. Not drastically different from little brother Julius, certainly, but a bit more emphatic everywhere it matters. That’ll do it for my most recent batch of New England IPAs from New England, and serious thanks again to Norm for such an excellent selection! (18/20)
