Tree House Brewing ‘Curiosity Forty’

Brewed by: Tree House Brewing

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
With Forty, we had a bit of a midlife crisis and did something we wouldn’t normally do – combined two hops we find to have highly distinct (and even opposing) flavor and aroma characteristics. Generally we devise hop combinations with the knowledge that one may complement or enhance the other. But here we got curious and combined – in equal parts – heavy doses of Galaxy and Simcoe to create something that is a shockingly tasty and unique sum of its individual parts. Forty pours a frothy yellow color in the glass and exhibits flavors and aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, lemon lime meringue and an awesome yet difficult to describe earthy tropicality. A dissolving effervescence lends to a soft mouthfeel and an easy to drink delight. This beer epitomizes what the curiosity series is about with a hop combination that, to our knowledge and palate, would clash yet when combined creates something beautifully unexpected and unique while serving to further our understanding of the art, science, and magic of brewing.
