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.

A: Not like the purp, but hazy peach fuzz with burst of orange in color. Nice enough ivory head and good lacing.

S: Orange blossom and grapefruit, passionfruit. Some grassiness and honey.

M: Smooth, medium feel, almost silky. Approaches a full very well-rounded body but has a tart snap at end. Slightest booziness.

S: Ends with peach and other stone fruit; pineapple/orange slush. Pine throughout, underripened tropical fruit--papaya and guava. Earthiness of lychee fruit. Grapefruit bitters. Dank juiciness.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a hazy, cloudy medium to dark tan orange color, thin lacing ring, light carbonation.

S - A touch of tea leaves along with a lot of tropical fruit aroma: mango, papaya, and orange.

T - Tropical frutiness from start to finish that follows the nose minus the tea leaves - mangos, papaya, orange, lemon, grapefruit with a medium bittersweet finish.

M - Medium body and with all the hops your mouth gets a healthy coating and creates a somewhat cotton-like feel after awhile and the 8%+ is completely hidden in the beginning but surfaces "just a tad" as the beer warms.

O - This is a fine Double IPA worth trying, not a "100" rating IMO but really darn good.

A: Bright shade of orange (apricot), hazy with a thin white lacing.
S: There's a lot going on here, very complex. Smells incredibly tropical - mango, melon, tangerine, pineapple, papaya, banana.
T: Bursting with citrus and a nice piney/hoppy finish. Has more of an earthy, crispness to it. Slight bitterness. Hint of orange aftertaste.
M: Medium carbonation, hops prickly to the tongue, goes down smooth, very refreshing.
O: I like this, a lot! Reminds me of a more hoppy version of GREEN. I was lucky enough to pick up a can of this, fresh via a trade. The freshness contributes to the complexity of flavors/aroma. This is big boy beer right here!!!!

Special thanks to Gmr75 for this outrageous extra!

A - Hazy apricot body. Almost hefeweizen like. Cream white head pours a finger high with nice retention and fantastic lace.

S - Really nice nose. Citrusy with orange, papaya and grapefruit. Banana, cilantro, alspice, and green pineapple backend.

T - Interesting flavor profile. Really fresh and really green, with a semi-sweet resiny finish. Fresh cut grass, sweet squash, bread crust, fresh green papaya, and honey. Great integration.

M - Smooth medium body. Murky finish.

O - Relatively unique flavor profile for the style, with lots of bright, pleasantly green (under-ripe) fruit flavors.

serving was out of a 750ml growler to pint glass, day after bottling. (bottled april 17th 2015)

Look: as the name implies, a hazy, deep golden orange. a crisp but sticky half finger head with a decent lacing.

Smell: peach, apricot and orange, maybe a touch of mango or some other tropical fruit.

Taste: peach and mango notes at first followed with a well-balanced bitterness. a hint of orange on the finish. very fresh, clean taste almost like fresh air. I also get an earthy almost woody note towards the end.

Feel: crisp on the tongue with tight carbonation, but not overwhelming. just right. light and drinkable. finishes a bit dry.

Overall, im very impressed with my 2nd offering from Tree House. I was blown away by their Curiosity 14 as well. from the very little i've tried from these guys they seem to have it together very well. complex and well balanced beers to say the least. Every sip seems to bring out new flavors. we will definitely be going back to fill our growlers soon!

My post-EBF treat. Bottled March 5, 2015.

Absolutely gorgeous foamy head, pineapple colored body. Sharp citrus aroma with dry mango, lemon zest and pineapple in flavor. Quite good.

Growler was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy golden yellow orange color with no vision of anything. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Juicy hops, tropical, citrus, grassy, earthy, spicy, and danky hops followed by biscuity, toasted, and pale malts.

Taste: Got to love those juicy hops. Nice malt backbone and light tingly bitterness. I keep going back for more. Tasty and delicious.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, refreshing, tasty, medium carbonation, and slight bitterness in the rear.

Overall: Another awesome beer from these settled guys. Good to see the new Brewery and let's hops the production of all their brews increases soon too. This growler isn't going to last long.

Pours a murky light apricot color (just say no to clear beers!)... smell of citrus and tropical fruits... taste of pine, resin, and citrus, with a-currently-indescribable fruity aftertaste- maybe kiwi?, and a mild bitterness Very tasty and addicting!

The aroma is subdued. I get slight notes of orange and citrus bitterness, but it's quite boozey. This is not my favorite by Treehouse.

Another home run from treehouse. As the name suggests, this pours a very cloudly hazy yellow/orange. Decent head and the smell is fresh grass and some citrus. One of the more drinkable beers out there. Taste is similar to the smell, almost refreshing.
TL;DR - This beer is good

Thanks @mikeyv35 for sharing your bottle!
A--Nice white head sits on top of a hazy orange, nice lacing
S--Unreal. Orange explosion, tangerine, pineapple, every tropical fruit you can imagine. Caramel sweetness? Maybe, its hard to smell anything besides that powerful fruit
T--Absolutely follows the nose as expected. Fruit explosion, almost overwhelms your mouth (in a good way) and then switches to a hop bite but smooth all the way. Malt is there just enough to make this 8.2 beer dangerously smooth and drinkability is high
M--Medium and smooth, didn't dry me out very much
O--Never have I had such a flavorful tropical DIPA. It was sweet but not boozy, with the right mixture of hops and malt (like 90 hops/10 malt ratio) which is just where I like it in a DIPA. Looking forward to more Tree House beers--incredible!

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB glass pours with a 1/4" white head, over the cloudy burnished gold brew. Head deflates slowly, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is piney hoppiness.

Taste starts sweet, mouth-puckering citrus in the middle, then pine and bitter take over through the close. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and drinkability is dangerously easy. Wow, great representative of the style.

750 ml bottle bought at the brewery Oct. 4.

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a Tree House tulip pint.

a: Hazy orange with a finger thick white head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Strong pine resin and grapefruit.

t: Follows the nose, and the accompanying hop bite is considerable. Yet little bitterness on the tongue, although what seems to be alcohol throat burn is noticeable at first.

m: Medium to full, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A powerful and flavorful DIPA with lots of danky hop goodness. Dangerously drinkable.

Thanks SuperHop18. 750ml growler dated October 31, 2014. Pours a hazy straw with a thin quickly dissipating head. Tangerine and peaches on the nose, this is one great smelling DIPA! Slightly bitter citrusy up front with a touch of dank. Finishes dry. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall, this a well balanced, supremely crafted IIPA. Good job Tree House.

The beer comes in an opaque rich rich golden orange. Absolutely beautiful.

The aroma offers sweet orange candy, tangerine, papaya, juicy fruit, hints of green grass and pine.

The flavor follows with that juicy fruit bubble flavor upfront, along with tropical fruit, nectarine, guava. Then there's a touch of sweetness as the beer transitions onto orange candy and tangerine. On the back, a slight grassiness balance with orange zest.

An absolute knockout from Tree House.

Picked up a couple of bottles of Haze from brewer Dean at Tree House. Sent one out to my fellow members of the Chicago Beer Snobs in Chicago, and shared the other with my brother yesterday. This is not only a great brew, but one that is extremely drinkable. Don't know if we are correct, but we tasted a little bit of peach maybe. The alcohol does not present itself, stays well hidden. I know Dean hangs with our Vermont brewers at Lawson's and Hill Farmstead, and I can say from the quality of this brew he well deserves to hang with those guys. Great brew, hard to come by; but if you are in Central Mass area seek it out. Congrats Dean....
