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.

4.25/5  rDev -6%

750ml swingtop growler into a Founders snifter.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with great retention. Beer is a cloudy mango. Great, thick lace and just a great-looking beer overall.

Nose is typical northeastern IIPA. Fruity, sweet and aromatic and real appetizing.

Flavor opens sweet mango, pineapple, starfruit, and citrus. Amazing. Cane sugar sweetness in the middle with just the right amount of citrus hop bitterness to balance things out. Really delicious.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth in the mouth and goes down easy and slightly dry. Finishes dry with a resiny aftertaste. Pulls the flavor together nicely.

The first beer I've had from Tree House is definitely a winner. A very solid IPA that provides an incredible experience from nose to flavor to feel. I'm looking forward to more from these guys.

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....

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!

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.

A - Poured into a Tree House Teku, pours a golden/orange color with a moderate white, nice retention and light lacing.

S - Aromas of tropical citrus fruits, oranges, passion fruit, earthy hops. Light hints of malts.

T - Taste follows the nose very well, slight bitterness, flesh citrus fruit. No booze detectable.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall a very well balanced beer, very easy to drink, the ABV is not noticeable, refreshing. This was my first DIPA from them and I am yet again happily surprised by the quality of their brews.

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.

Growler filled yesterday, shared with rudzud and threelions.

Decent creamy 1/2 finger head fades med pace, nice sticky lacing, semi hazy orange honey color. Nice legs too. Column of streaming bubbles.

Nose brings dank resin, nice generic tropical fruits, kiwi hops, some grapefruit pith and little orange rind, nice overall fruity, with mild pine to go with the resin and dankness. Tangerine, Clementine, etc.

Taste starts with tons of citrus, orange juice, tangerine Clementine, little mango and papaya like, juicy citrus fruit, little rind and pith. Mild pine, very light, and some resin and darkness. Little hop oil, so much juicy citrus, little generic tropical fruit, kiwi hops, etc. Decent but mild malt profile, great balance. Finish is drier, little resin and hop oil, light bitterness but nice citrus and tropical fruits lingering, little rind and pith.

Mouth is med bod, no booze, maybe a touch thin, decent carb.

Overall pretty great, not quite Julius or Green, more like somewhere in between, but still very nice.

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

Just got and drank batch #6 of Haze. Each batch is a little different - they use different hops.

Haze is fruity and surprisingly smooth for an 8.2% DIPA. If I could pick just one flavor, I'd say it tastes like tangerines. It has the citrus/orange fruit up front, with a little bite like the pith from citrus fruit, and a little tangyness to it. I get very minimal malts. As the beer warms it really opens up - more citrus, some mango, papaya, even peach. Really tasty stuff and nice work from the guys at Tree House!

750ml swing-top, purchased today, into a Tree House Teku.

A: Pours a medium orange with two fingers of foamy white head that fades to a nice lace, beer is slightly hazy but I've seen wayyy cloudier (looking at you Heady...)

S: Sweet tropical fruit just punches you in the nose with tangerine, mango, and orange. Subtle caramel malt sweetness and a touch of grass.

T: Up front tropical fruit, loads of tangerine, mango, orange and grapefruit. Was described by the brewery as "OJ" and while not quite that far, this is a citrus bomb. There is some pine and earthy flavors but the citrus clearly dominates.

M: Medium bodied with nice crisp carbonation and relatively low bitterness. Drinks easily and goes down smooth.

O: This is a great DIPA from Tree House that I'm thankful to get to try. I have another 750 that I'll surely be sharing with friends.

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 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.

Visited the Tree House brewery tonight. Was a very welcoming, enjoyable visit.

Appearance - golden hue. Hazy in recent versions. Thin head.

Smell - hoppy. Orange smell. Tropical smell

Taste - hoppy citrus taste with no booze taste. Very fresh tasting.

Mouthfeel - nice. Again alcohol well hidden.

Overall - a good, solid double IPA. I find it to be better than, but similar to, DirtWolf, which is a compliment in my mind.

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!

25 oz. growler served in a nonic (thanks Joe). Bottled 7/12/14. Pours a translucent straw gold with a tight, 1/2 inch, bright white head. Head eventually dissipates into a consistent skim. Some lacing present, but poor adherence for the most part. Nose expresses bright citrus notes, a hint of ethanol and something else, perhaps herbal or oniony; it's hard to tease out. Citrus in the flavor profile is just as bright and akin to tangerines or clementines, with a mild hops bittering at the finish to break up the sweetness between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium with an even carbonation and some acidity that lightly stimulates the salivary glands. Texture is slightly oily. Overall, another exceptional beer from Treehouse. I just wish they were closer.

Apperance - Bright orange in color, 2 fingers of white head, crystal clear with streaming bubbles.
Aroma- strong pine/ grass aroma, grapefruit, a hint of mango, touch of bready malt
Taste- one of the best beers I have tried this year, very well balanced and the tasting notes follow the aroma pine some grapefruit and hint of mango. The bitternes is there to balance the sweetness in the malt but it does not overpower your palate.

750ml growler poured into a Bell's snifter 8/15/2014.

A- Hazy (as I had figured) orange body, two finger white head with great retention, very nice thick rings of lacing. Altogether a very nice looking DPA.

S- Floral, citrus, pine hops hit you in the face along with a nice pale malt caramel sweetness that balances out the hop aromas. A bit simplistic to be sure, but very delicious just the same.

F- Pine, pine, cut by some grassiness and sweet, honeyed bread and cracker flavours. Quite well balanced in terms of flavours, but the hops do stand out.

M- Medium in body, good carbonation with a nice creamy feel that makes it so drinkable. Not particularly bitter on the finish despite all the hop aromas and flavours.

O- Very nice double pale ale that is quite a bit different in character than Julius, definitely worth seeking out.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear light golden hue with a thin one finger head that faded to leave light lacing and a nice foamy halo and wispy.

S - Aromas of big, dank hops big resinous notes, orange peel, grapefruit, light tropical notes. Really assertive wet hops, hardly any malts.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, though flopped with resinous and citrus. Nice candy orange notes, light grapefruit, wet lightly bitter notes, much less bitter than I thought it would taste. No booze detectable. Nice citrus hop notes, fleshy fruit.

M - Mouthfeel is really nice, lightly carbonated, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was pretty good, however, not my favourite double ipa from then. Still good though!

A-'Haze' doesn't pour all that hazy. A thin, white head grows and dies before my eyes. Clearish body is bright honey in color. Almost zero lace.

S-Not as aromatic as I've come to expect Treehouse's world class brews to be. It's too soft but I do like what's there. Peach and nectarine hops along with grass and citrus. Pale, subtle malt sweetness.

T-Flavor is clearly better. Tropical fruits, some pineapple, peach and apricot hops. Grassy and floral hops as well. Tangerine. Some sweetish hop flavor accompanied by a breadiness.

M-Not overly bitter. No heat. Medium bodied with some hop resin. Medium carbonation. Aftertaste doesn't linger for too long.

O-A very good beer but not my favorite Treehouse brew. Still better than much of what I can consistently get my hands upon. Always a treat to cop some nectar from the brewers in Minson.

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.
