Tree House Brewing ‘Curiosity Sixty One’

Brewed by: Tree House Brewing

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume: 7.9%

Notes/Commercial Description: Curiosity Sixty One finds us experimenting with a limited experimental hop variety, X06297™. X06297™ has a highly distinctive, intoxicating aroma during sensory analysis of sweet orange, vanilla, pluots, peaches, and tropical fruit. Utilizing a simple malt bill of 2-row barley and wheat, we aimed to extract the most from this hop we possibly could, with heavy kettle and dry hop additions to a simple base. The result is intriguing and delicious! Many of the sensory aromas translate to the finished beer, with notes of stone fruit, plum, papaya, and citrus dominating the palate. This is a more elegant flavor profile, setting aside the ‘in your face’ presentation of many modern American hops, but is absolutely as delicious and intriguing. And dangerously easy to drink. What a delightful hop! The mouthfeel on Sixty One is gentle, buoyed by soft carbonation and a sturdy malt base. Enjoy!
