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.

juice bomb!! pours the haziest orange, resembles mixing fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice together. smell is juice, citrus, oranges, clementines, with a sweetness at the end. taste follows the smell perfectly, giant juice bomb. no apparent alcohol taste. feel is perfect, a little thick but it is a double IPA. awesome brew from Tree House! close second to Julius in my opinion.

This beer is yet another slam dunk from Tree House. Massive citrus aromatics: orange, grapefruit, some pineapple, and ripe peach. Hop bitterness is a little more dank and pronounced than some of their other beers, it definitely drinks a little "bigger" than beers like Julius and Green. Malts have a caramel quality to them which increases the richness.

Mouthfeel has the TH signature creaminess. Appearance is hazy and beautiful, laces well but not quite as nicely as their regular IPAs. In terms of the alcohol bite it is very slightly perceptible. I don't understand what goes on at that brewery or how they figured this out, but they seem to be incapable of making anything less than excellent beer.

Pours a murky orange that really resembles some type of dark orange juice. The nose is full of stone fruit, mangoes, pineapple and citrus. The body is sweet with a light pine presence and a restrained bitter finish. Another slam dunk from Tree House!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a pounder into a tulip glass:

Appearance: incredibly hazy and vibrant orange color. Head is fluffy, long-lasting and off white, leaving big puffs of foam on top and a nice ring of lace around the edges.

Aroma: piles of citrus overwhelm the nostrils, along with a touch of zestiness. The whole room reeks of hops after cracking the can with this one.

Taste: a TON of citrus and pineapple, mixed in with a solid amount of earthiness. Zesty and bitter on the finish, with a lingering dankness.

Feel: medium bodied, with a relatively dry finish for the hop profile.

Overall: excellent IIPA, another big-time hit for TH.

Look - Straight orange juice! The typical TH haze. Their beers are absolutely amazing looking in the glass.
Smell - Pineapple, orange juice, mangos, citrusy, pulpy, some dankness
Taste - Follows the nose. Tons of orange, tons of tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, pithy, hints of booze on the back end but is insanely drinkable/crushable for 8.2%.
Feel - Signature TH. Creamy, velvety, smooth

Overall - This is one of the best DIPAs on the planet.....period! Tree House continues to impress. They are one of the best.....if not thee best brewery out there, period.

This beer is one of my favorites from treehouse (which lets be honest anything out of treehouse is my favorite) super citrusy with a punch. Canned today so fresher than the prince of bel air.

The beer has a super hazy orange color. The aroma is grassy and vegetal. The taste is grassy, vegetal, bubblegum, almost a paint-like quality, and has a clean finish.

16 oz can. Pour turbid orange, thick fluffy head fades slowly leaving lace and clumps of foam on the surface. Huge citrusy orange nose. Taste follows with sweet orange and tropical fruit, delicious. The hops on this one don't hit until very late in the sip, strong but not unpleasant grapefruit peel and touch of pine. The hops become bitter well after the swallow. Semi dry finish and soft medium mouthfeel. Another outstanding IPA by Tree House, late hops linger a bit long but way good.

16 oz. can from the source poured into a snifter 2 days after canning.

A= Hazy, orange, bubble rising through the haze forming a thick foamy white head.

S= Citrus, orange juice, orange zest followed by some tropical fruit sweetness.

T= Big burst of citrus and tropical hop flavors up front balanced with some malt and earthy pine finish.

M= Moderate carbonation and a fairly high side of medium body.

O= Great brew, exceptional aroma and flavor and great amount of balance from the malt to allow for the 8.2%abv..

Great tasting american double IPA. From the first smell you can smell the citrus and fruit explosion before putting the glass to mouth. It pours a hazy yellow with a one inch head. The flavor has more hop punch that Julius or Alter Ego, but doesn't make the beer any less smooth. Another great Treehouse Brew.

Dangerously drinkable for the abv. Mango, papaya citrus bomb. There is such a balance for a double Ipa and it's not overly bitter. Soft on the palate which belies the amount of hops and strength of the brew. Awesome.

Haze is one of the best ipa's coming out of tree house. It's a nice mix of blends and hops. It enhances the spiceness of food and a great stand alone beer. Try it with some spicy foods to enhance the food such as papaya salad or spicy wings.

It pours a dull, hazy/murky orange. Very thin head. It wasn't overly aromatic. There is some light malt sweetness on the front end, but it is the dank, grapefruit and earthy, spicy hop presence that plays the greatest role. A soft mouthfeel, which I've found typical of Tree House hoppy concoctions. This is a very good DIPA.

Received a few cans in a local trade. Poured into a TH teku glass. Pours a orangish color with moderate, white head. Smells of tropical citrus, hops, passion fruit; tastes are pretty close to smell... slight bitterness but no booziness detected. The mouthfeel has slight carbonation, medium body, ABV is hidden well. Overall a very tasty offering from Tree House Brewing. It is super drinkable and amazing DIPA. Cheers!

16 oz can poured into a Tree House goblet. Pours a turbid hazy orange with serious citrus nose. Basically the higher abv more hopped up older brother of Julius. Still drinks like a lower abv brew with amazing mouthfeel and a ton of citrus hops and juicy deliciousness. Wish I had more than a few cans!

Thanks to jakehoodlum for this 16 oz. silver can, in that seemingly east coast minimalist slap-a-label on a can blank style. Drunking by myself in a hotel room, working, watching the Twins, wild-card bound!

The pour is golden yellow with a solid white cap & active bubbles that are visible even through the (h)aze. Nose clocks in at strong oranges & more nebulous fruit tones with a sweet smile. Not bad.

Haze is what I’d be in if I had a four-pack of this. White Bronco hit & run of bitterness right on kick-off, with no time for any of the knicker-twisting fruits that too many IPAs are veering towards. Underneath the sneering is classic citrus, light mango & apricot, other tropicals, & just a pinch of white pepper. The finish goes slightly grainy with downslope pine, but the bitterness is what really kicks the ending. I could drink a lot of this; matter of fact, I already have. Why does my glass look so empty? Who’s stealing my beer?

Unlike some of its east coast compatriots, this is an IPA & not a pale ale with a Chevy lift kit bolted on. Bitter blast, tasty fruitiness, & a ridiculous drinkability that’s just this side of a beer bong. I only have one more of these? I will be cradling it lovingly when I return home. This is an excellent beer that’s only one thin mint away from joining the elite. EDIT: after not wanting to brush my teeth last night & thinking about this beer several times today, I can't figure why I didn't give this a "5" on taste. A world-class IIPA.

Poured from a can dated 9/16 into my Gandhi-Bot snifter glass tonight, 9/21. Thanks Andrzej! Looks amazeballs, orange with a deep cloudy opaqueness, frothy head leaves great lacing. Big orange and mango on the nose. Cracking open the can fills the room, instant mouth watering reflex initiated! Starts on the flavor sweet, then right into the tropical fruit, more mango and peach here, a touch of sweet orange. Finishes dank and leafy with a residual hop flavor after the swallow. 8.2% ABV? Yeah right, drinks like 6%. Another grand slam from Tree House.

Pour - dark gold "hazy" color with fast receding white head
Smell - tropical pine forest
Taste - Hops hit you out front followed by an even more bitter taste
Overall - A little on the heavier side, but highly drinkable

Received this bad boy as an extra. Poured into a teku glass.

Look: As the name suggests, a hazy golden/orange color. Nice head retention.
Smell: Mostly pine and fruitiness.
Taste: Really tasty. Lots of tropical fruit. Not too bitter...which is kind of nice (actually shared this with my non-beer drinking sister and she very much enjoyed it)
Feel: Medium body. Slightly creamy.

Overall: A really good IIPA. Glad I was able to try it. Will seek out more Tree House brews in the future.

Got this one in a nice IP trade. Hope it's good! 16 oz. can into a tulip.

A - Hazier than usual , and not quite as bright orange as the others I've had, but the head is beautiful. Tight off-white bubbles that are going absolutely nowhere.

N - Hmm, definitely plenty hoppy, but not bitter at all. I get some bright citrus and not a whole lot else. I would prefer a bit stronger, but this is exactly how I like my IPAs to smell.

T - Ooooo, very nice. Really not at all bitter. I do get more pine here than I did in the nose, but otherwise plenty of citrus. Not amazingly complex, but a solid all-around IPA.

M - Here's where Tree House really shines. Somehow all of these IPAs turn to froth as soon as they hit my tongue, and it's just wonderful. I don't know how they do it. They just know how to craft a good beer. Very wet on the finish, actually, like it's continuously quenching my thirst. Nicely done.

O - Another winner.

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.

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.

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.
