Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Davepoolesque on 05-23-2014

This Double IPA is created with a massive kettle charge of Australian and American hops. It opens in the glass with huge notes of ripe pineapple, pithy citrus, and dank saturated hops. As it warms it shows its depth and complexity. . . Sweet hints of malt intermingle with straight Tropicana. It has a soft but pointed bitterness and a rich, velvety mouth feel.

Enjoyed at the 3rd Anniversary Party.

Huge fluffy head, hazy peach orange

Nose is good but not what I was expecting, bright tropical fruit, mild dank resin, orange cream, guava passion fruit, pith, somewhat light though as I have to really fish for those characters.

Taste very bitter, big rind pith, tropical fruits, guava, bubblegum, resin, papaya, little tangerine and pith, Clementine, juicy, touch of mango. Finish dry very bitter, rind pith, mild dank tropical.

Nice creamy fluffy mouth, great carb.

Overall, this really doesn't seem like a correct version of Very Green. I've been trying to get this beer for a long time now, and this doens't seem like a good version, and even the Green I had recently seems very underwhelming, so perhaps the batch of hops is less potent than usual, or they got less of it. I'll def try this again next time it's around though. (876 characters)

Enjoyed at the 3rd Anniversary Party at the brewery. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into the custom Tree House wine glass a hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades slowly to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of super dank citrus, lots of dank bitterness as well. Little herbal too.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Dank, resinous citrus, grapefruit pith and a little peel. Just a little bit of herbalness.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, drinks a little hot.

O - Overall this beer was good, but pales in comparison to how great regular 'ol Green is. I'd like to have this again though, just to see if in a more controlled environment my marks would be higher.

The beer comes in an intense golden yellow, extremely hazy.

The aroma hits of dank herbal quality, bready malt, grapefruit pith, bright pineapple.

The flavor follows with that initial attack of bright pineapple, guava, watered down orange juice, grapefruit, Orangina, barely sweetness, but medium bready malt, then onto this aggressive dank quality that reminds me of fusel, grain alcohol, vodka. At 8.3%, it certainly isn't true alcohol, but a strange note from the hops.

In the end, very much Green in the front, but the malt and that huge dank bite really detract from the beer. A "big" disappointment, relatively speaking to Tree House standards and Green being the best IPA. (682 characters)

Everything that green has but more. From an eight oz pour into my tasting glass - during the 3rd anniversary party thrown on 6.13.15

Could not see through the beer, had that nice juicy flavor of green - I could sense the alcohol ever so slightly, but a super balanced and tasty beer. (286 characters)

Poured from a 750 mL growler filled today.

Appearance: Very Green pours a beautiful hazy golden color with a white head that lasts a couple of minutes. The lacing on the glass is thick and lasts throughout the duration of the beer.

Aroma: I might as well be sticking my head into the freshest tropical fruit bowl ever - tons of mango, citrus, pineapple, passionfruit. Tropical fruit heaven.

Taste: Just as the aroma indicates, the tropical and citrus flavors explode in my mouth. The beer only has a faint biscuity malt presence - the hops definitely dominate in the very best of ways. Although hop-forward, the beer only is a bit bitter. A slightly bitter - but still fruity - aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a tiny bit chewy, and the beer seems to live for a long time after its gone.

Overall: This beer is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Every component of the beer comes together to create one of the best beers I've had in recent memory. Totally hop forward, but in the sexiest, most tropical, magical ways. The brewery limited each person to 2 750s - I really, really, really wish I could have purchased more. This is Green (the basic IPA) multiplied by a million. (1,186 characters)

Poured out of the growler into a Hill wine glass. Soft pillowy white head. Hazy, burnt orange yellow color. Looks amazing. Smell is tropical fruits galore. Tangarine, mango, papaya and a biscuity malt sweetness in the back. This tastes like straight up juice, but only better. Huge orange flavor up front and finishes clean with that nice biscuit malt. Dare I say, better than Julius? I'd put this against any Hill beer. (420 characters)
