COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Curiosity Thirty Four was imagined as a beer full of flavor yet pillowy soft and easily drinkable as we transition to the warmer months here in New England. Fermented with our classic house yeast and combining Warrior, Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, and Columbus hops, it exhibits flavors and aromas of papaya, pineapple, sweet orange, and a hint of honeydew melon. A tight effervescence contributes to a beer that softly dissolves on the palate and leaves your mouth coated with a pleasing gentle hoppiness. A beer fit for a tropical excursion or a sunny day in the back yard.

Canned 4/17, drunk 5/26/17.
Quite hazy, peach-to-maize golden body is not soupy and has a small, but fairly dense, white head atop showing moderate retention.
Soft spice with lush, juicy, greenery showcases a marvelously aromatic hop profile, especially given the age of the can. Clean, without the massive ester character that I feel plagued Curiosity 35. Still has the juicy watermelon that is the house character but it’s much more integrated. As well, papaya, nectarine, key lime and light mango all join in and it’s juice and spice galore with cracker/biscuit malt character gently balancing. Clean, with no alcohol noted.
The flavor comes on slow at first, opening with lime, orange and light nectarine juiciness. Mild bitterness enters and the incredibly tight carbonation disperses everything across the palate perfectly as gentle, but succulent malts add dainty honey and cracker but stay mostly out of the way. There is a crescendo of fruit character as the finish approaches and juiciness constantly builds up on the palate, only to be gently dispersed by the pleasing biterness, light citrus and spice character. Rinse and repeat. Very succulent and elegant IPA here with moderate-to-low house ester character, no alcohol and no flaw or resin. Phenomenal stuff, definitely up there with 28 and 32 as the best of the last year.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting at Corbet’s house on June 26. 16 oz can. The pour is a juicy orange yellow color with a thicker white head and a good lace left behind. The aroma is nice. There is a lot of citrus and tropical fruitiness up front with a nice citrus rind bitterness. There is an earthy hop presence and a little pine resin. The flavor is good as well. The juiciness is huge right up front, but it maintains a decent bitterness throughout that I enjoy. The light grassiness of the hop fades into a pine resin on the back end. This is damn good. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a decently bright carbonation and a lingeringly fruity bitter juiciness on the back end. Solid, solid brew. 8 4 8 4 16

Can shared with my brother. Tree House is always nice to have. It’s juicy-sweet, hoppy, and aromatic, and this is no exception. The only problem is: I honestly can’t tell much of a difference between them all at this point!

16 ounce can shared at Todd’s. Smells and looks like it will be a juice bomb but it is more balanced and subdued with some malt finish.

bellco33 (851) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2017
Poured from a can into a tulip: Pours hazy orange with a one finger white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, mango, papaya, some melon notes, light citrus. Taste is a complete tropical juice bomb. Light sweetness well balanced by a very slight hop bite. This is one of the best, if not the best, curiosity beers I’ve had and I wish I was able to get more. Please turn this into a rotation beer. It’s different enough from the rest of the regulars that it’ll stand out in a nice way on its own. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, IPA perfection.
