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.

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! (776 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)

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. (841 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)

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. (667 characters)

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)

Tree House has perhaps the most loyal fan base of any brewery I have visited, so at times it is difficult to gauge how good their beers actually are when you finally brush aside the hype and taste the beer for yourself.

This beer was good, but with Vermont's Big Three readily available for me on a fairly consistent basis, it fell short of my expectations.

Still, in the absence of some of the other big DIPA's, this one would certainly deliver on flavor and feel. (468 characters)

Decent enough tasting honey colored beer, but for being a double IPA and over $4 a can I was disappointed in the lack of fullness and real double IPA laden tastes. (163 characters)

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)
