COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Blonde Ale brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops, a New Zealand varietal that melds beautifully with a simple bill of pale malts. This is a true "session beer" and one that does not make any compromises. It has a delicate bouquet of passionfruit and a slight lemon flavor that will surely quench your thirst.

Golden body with medium to large white head and soapy lacing. Pineapple, florals, grapefruit, pale crackery malts. Medium to light bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, dry throughout, assertive bitterness in the finish. Solid.

Flip top growler split with GT2. Pours a beautiful glowing gold with large foam. Gorgeous beer. Aroma of pineapple, ginger, fresh dough, bright yellow fruit. Taste is super doughy, medium bodied, mild fruit juice, white grape, pineapple, mango. Low bitterness in finish. I usually hate Nelson hops, smell and taste like Vasoline, but somehow Tree House has worked their magic.

> World class Session IPA

[ Growler ][ 750mL ][ radarsock ][ Trade ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 6.18.14 ]
>> Pours glowing straw, full haze like all of their beers, thick white foam, delicate and encompassing lacing. Nose isnít really what Iím used to in Nelson- instead it is much softer with juicy gooseberry, candied pineapple, pineapple gummy bears, lychee jelly, vanilla cake. Taste is pineapple smoothie, pineapple cake batter, fresh biscuit, loads of white dough. Ultra soft palate, super quenching. Delicious. Extremely low bitterness on this one really makes me lean towards hoppy blonde than Session IPA, but the line is thin and gray. Both styles are amazing when someone knows what they are doing. Tree House is no solidified itself in my mind as being at the highest level in beer today.

Poured from growler into a tulip: Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma is melon, citrus fruits, and bread. Taste is very citrus hop forward, but not at all bitter. Incredibly drinkable session with a lot of flavor. Light body, a little thin, but itís a great beer.

The originator not the imitator. This first version of Eureka features Nelson Sauvin hops and has a very unique cool, earthy, fruitiness thatís difficult to describe but a joy to sniff and taste. Second best of the three versions to date, Galaxy being my favorite.

BroSpud (1724) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Sampled during Julioís Spring Beer Fest. Hands down one of the best brews I have tasted that is under 4% ABV. Light and refreshing and actually has more flavor than many beers much higher on the scale. Well done.

AdamJackson (2802) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Very hazy yellow, sticky lacing head Vacuumed carpet and urine with a boom of tangerine; sticky-icky dank taste like rose petals, oak moss, tangerine and clementines.

tom10101 (3012) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Armsby Abbey (Worcester). Super hazy orange with medium mostly lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is really citrusy along with other fruits, light herbal notes and light malt. Taste is again mostly of citrus along with other fruits, light herbal notes and a light but effective malt backbone. Light body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very nice citrus forward session beer. Really drinkable.

Pours pale orange gold with a white head. Aroma of passionfruit, light cereal. Sweet light malt backbone with flavors of passionfruit, lemon. Juicy. Finish has a touch less bitterness than the galaxy version.

egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nelsons, floral hops, resin, dank fruits and citrus. Taste of lighter toffee malts, some toast, grapey nelsons, and a fruity, hoppy finish.
