Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rudzud on 06-19-2014

We constructed this beer around hops we currently have plenty of access to, allowing us to re-brew it on a (relatively) consistent basis. We smell a ton of orange on the nose, with complimentary notes of peach and passionfruit. The flavor is similar with a blast of citrus fruit & orange quickly followed by spicy grapefruit, and earthy dankness. A lingering but pleasant hop oil finish awaits.

4.75/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a can three weeks old into a pint glass
Appearance: Nice finger of head and great carbonation. Blonde, yellow, hazy color. About what you expect from a TH hoppy beer.
Aroma: Tons of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, lime, lemon, orange) also a slight hint of onion. Overall smells like pineapple/mango juice.
Taste: Follows the noise with tropical fruit flavor (pineapple, mango, and orange). There is also a gum ball like sweetness to the beer which I find very interesting. The finish comes in with bitterness (more than most TH beers) and more sweetness.
Feel: Creamy, biscuitty mouthfeel. Could be slightly fully for my taste but not thin in the any sense.
Overall an amazing DIPA which I could have over heady or SOS. Some enjoy Julius and Green more than this one, but to me they are all slightly different and amazing beers. (843 characters)

Canned about two weeks ago. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a pale color with two fingers of foamy, off white head. Excellent retention and very generous lacing.

S: Highly aromatic. Tangerine, dankness, orange, pale malt, pine.

T: Apricot, pine, earthiness, tangerine, light crystal malt sweetness, finishing with a mild bitterness.

M: Medium-light body and light, soft carbonation. Alcohol is completely hidden.

O: Endlessly drinkable, very nice flavor which isn’t too fruity or piney, but dry and uncommonly well balanced. (525 characters)

As the name suggest it pour hazy into the glass with a orange hue. Very thick head forms right away and dissipates slowly. The aroma is of pine and tropical fruits. There is no indication that it's 8.2%. It's very drinkable with pine, orange peal and a bit of malt in the finish. Outstanding DIPA. (302 characters)

Rating # 1400
16 ounce can poured into a True Blood pint glass.
Bite me!
Not as hazy as I thought it would be. Half inch head is not going anywhere.
Nice tropical aroma.
Taste follows suit.
Nice mouthfeel.
Overall: Glad I finally got to try this one. This is one of the very few DIPA's where the finish doesn't ruin it for me like so, so many other Heady wannabes. Big thanks to Tim Fitzgerald! Nice job Tree House! (416 characters)

This is a review from memory I will update when I have it fresh again. Poured from a 16 oz can a few weeks ago. Pours a beautiful hazey gold with a fluffy white head. Smells of tropical fruit, citrus and hibs. Taste of tropical hob juice! Wow! Fantastic beer I can't wait to get it again! (288 characters)

Another solid offering from Tree House. Light, fluffy hop profile. Super bright, tropical hop bit, but with no bitter finish; typical of the new east coast style. (164 characters)

Pours chalky orange with a two finger head. Smells floral with bitter pine and a good heap of citrus. Taste is pungent of tropical fruits with peppery and sharp hops. Quite bitter and also sweet. Finishes dry and leaves some hop flavor behind. Overall a really great double IPA that can hold its own with just about anything. Tree House has a real excellent treat in Haze. (378 characters)

No date, assumed it was fresh. Pours a light golden color and was the clearest beer I have had from TH. Balanced and very smooth for an 8% DIPA. As always, they don't dissapoint (177 characters)

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. One week after canning sale at Tree House brewery.

Pale apricot orange body color, and slightly cloudy. Lemon edges towards the bottom. Head is a solid growing four fingers. Simple white and very fine bubbles in the head formation. Sits like an even puck, island clumping in the middle with excellent pill and ring like lacing, staying power, and retention.

Wonderful mix of dank and earth notes of hop on the nose. Heavily woody, with hints of burnt pine and great smokey dank quality on the hop. Mouth watering quality.

Palate really makes a great impression. Instead of a dank slam of weeds, a big juiced body comes in large and full. Mild sensing tangerine orange, even tropical guava fruit in the mid palate. Finishes thick and almost velvet like with a great pine bitterness of earth on the aftertaste. Big and in control, well contrasted between fruit and earth qualities. Perfect amount of sweetness in the malt coming through with just a wonderful balance between sweet and bitter, and hop earth and fruit.

Fantastic well made DIPS that actually comes off more like a great balanced IPA. (1,160 characters)

Poured from 16oz can into a Teku. Crisp hazy golden color with zero transparency. Nice lingering one finger head. Smells of pine and mango. Taste is fantastic, has that east coast IIPA feel but very easy on the finish. Overall another great beer from Treehouse. (261 characters)

- 750mL growler (filled 24-Jul-15) poured into whisky glass on 11-Aug-15

Thanks to marino13412 for the awesome trade.

This reminds me of a buffer sibling to TG's Pseudo Sue due to the juicy peaches and mangos. Super dank, but it's surprisingly got a clean finish. Very interesting. (283 characters)

Pour is light golden amber with lots of fluffy white head and a decent lacing. Nose is huge grapefruit rind, really rindy musk, light grain profile, clean. Flavor is the same, a little less of the rind, more tropical, very low bitterness, light body, softer carb. (265 characters)

Can from the most recent release. Tried this and Curiosity 20 in the same night and Haze was the winner. Just a tremendous double IPA. I've yet to have a hoppy beer from Tree House that hasn't been excellent. (208 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16 oz can poured into a shoe.

Pours a hazed golden light orange with a creamy dense and bubbly off white head leaving behind thick sheets of lace. Nose of citrus, bready malt and spice; orange, grapefruit rind, cracker, pepper, grass. Creamy smooth body, thick and full, with dry mildly bitter finish. Flavor is dominated by pine and citrus rind, smooth bitterness and a strong bready malt base with a light grassy pepper spiciness. A solid, "easy drinking" pine and citrus IIPA though not a standout from Tree House or others. (531 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Look - Poured into Teku glass from 750ml. Golden Haze with a nice head and lacing.

Smell - Citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Getting a slight grainy/malt aroma on the end.

Taste - Unique. Tropical and citrus fruit with a bit of pine.

Feel - Smooth with very little carbonation. Very easy drinker for 8.2%.

Overall - Not the best example of a Tree House beer and definitely not my favorite. Still this is very good and crushable. Will update my review after tasted from the 16 oz cans for comparison.

*Tasted out of the can and it was better, not sure why but it seemed to be more balanced than the 750ml. (610 characters)

Very impressive aside from the aroma. Seems to smell much more like a shelf IPA than a hop bomb to me. Tastes extremely juicy. Great beer, probably not worth waiting in line for 1.5 hours after driving 2. Most of Trillium's/Vermont's offerings impressed me a lot more. (268 characters)

Bomber poured into antique pilsner glass

Pours an opaque golden orange liquid with a thick , billowy generous two finger white foamy cap . Great lacings.

Aroma of gentle pine, sweet pineapple, orange rind and hint of peppery spice.

Taste of tropical fruits, orange and citrus. pine hops

Low carbonation, smooth as silk, mild pine hop bitter aftertaste . Well balanced.

Another fine tree house beer. (407 characters)

First time trying, poured out of Tree House 2L growler. Not very hazy for a TH beer called "Haze". Very unpleasant nose. Unique fruity hop profile that I'm not especially fond of. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will think I'm crazy but this one is a rare disappointment from TH. (287 characters)

poured into teku from growler filled on 7/30/15 at Tree House Brewing. Pours the color of orange pulp with an enormous frothy white head. Lacing is abundant. Smell is a blast of orange rind, sweet pineapple, grapefruit with a slight piney note as well. Taste is a bit bitter up front but the citrus notes take over quickly, some breadiness from pilsner malt(?) peeks in there and then fades into a slightly bitter finish. Feel is medium with no signs of the 8.2ABV at all. Another deliciously beautiful beer from Tree House. Can they do anything wrong? (559 characters)

Poured from a 2 liter growler poured at the brewery 4 days ago. This is one fantastic DIPA. Honestly I just haven't had a bad beer yet from these guys, but Haze is such. Well balanced DIPA. Very citrusy, fruit bomb full of flavor and smooth as hell, with a little bit of bitterness on the back end. But that's ok and too be expected from the style. I don't enjoy DIPAs that are too malt forward or too bitter, but this is neither. Just a great example of this style and a beer that I will come back to at every opportunity that I get. (540 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Like most of the treehouse brews, perfect. Nice and pale yellow cloudyness good head, and lacing down the glass.
S: Quite fruity/citrusy. I get lots of orange/pineapple smell, with some more hop/piney at the end
T: Kind of a mix between green and julius, but not the same level as either. It has some fruityness and then some dank/piney hops but neither reach the level as the other two beers. But still a top Ipa haha
F: Little better then green and on the same level as julius where its a little thicker but still leaves a little stickyness feeling on the tongue.

O: Another amazing one from treehouse slightly behind julius and green but still one of the best ipas. (672 characters)

Slightly spicy pine nose, tastes of lemon, orange zest, papaya, and peach with a bitter pine finish. Not quite on the level of Green or Julius but this ones up there, could be most breweries best beer. That characteristic depth of hop flavor is mind bogglingly good (265 characters)

Pint can into a shaker glass. Pours, erm, hazy.

Smells citrusy with light notes of pine. Tons of straight-up orange with a little bit of mango in there. Very nice, but nothing super exceptional.

Tastes like it smells: light pine hops up front, moving into a middle that's dominated by tropical fruit nodes, and then ending with some bready malt and more pine. The balance is pretty good and the smoothness is exceptional for a beer of this strength.

I don't know if this quite counts as one of the best beers I've ever had. Or--actually, I do, and it isn't. But just because it didn't *quite* live up to the hype doesn't mean it's not excellent. (657 characters)
