Drank from a 1 pint, 9.4 fluid ounces growler purchased at the Tree House Brewing Company, Brimfield, MA
Bottled on 02-23-13
Served in a pint glass

Super cloudy in appearance. This IPA beats even the hoppy Hill Farmstead beers in term of turbidity. The orangey, peachy, straw colored liquid was topped by a one-plus finger tall crop of soapy, eggshell tinged foam. The head fell rather quickly to a clingy ring of froth. Large drippy blocks of lacing cascaded down the top third of the glass.

The nose was perhaps the best ever I have experienced in an IPA. Incredibly fragrant and bright with intense fruity notes. Tons of peach, nectarine and apricot. Lots of tropical fruits as well. Mango and papaya were apparent. Good amount of orange peel. Quite sweet overall. The sweetness however seemed to come from the plethora of fruity C-hop notes rather than from a stiff malty backbone. Dank, resiny hops appeared as well.

The flavor profile was also remarkably impressive. Super strong peach, apricot and nectarine notes led things off. Lots of tangerine and candied orange peel as well. Semi-sweet pale malts were noticeable on the front end, but they were merely there for balance. Intense tropical fruit notes. Mango and pineapple were most apparent. The finish was dry, pithy and semi-bitter and contained strong white grapefruit notes.

The beer was medium bodied. Soft, creamy and pillowy with a fine, mellow carbonation. The first growler I had (which was consumed on the same day it was bottled) had a zippier effervescence to it, but I actually preferred the subtler mouthfeel on the three-day-old growler.

Julius is one of the best IPA I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. Many people have compared Tree House Brewing to Hill Farmstead and for good reason. Both are located in bucolic setting and both produce some outstanding IPAs (along with other beers). Needless to say, I am extremely glad to have these guys located in state.

Growler courtesy of Cam....oh man, what a great surprise. Thank you buddy!

Rich orange, big fluff, pillows of lace....wow!

Big waves of citrus...orange, tangerine, nectarine...so damn fruity.

Huge notes of citrus here as well, baby aspirin, some caramel and bready malts for firm yet welcomed support, and a light grassy bitterness that keeps things honest.

Sweet and lightly syrupy but modestly carbonated allows this to feel juicy as well.

So much to like here and just a ridiculous amount of fresh hops and citrus twang with enough malt support and gentle bitters to keep everyone playing nicely. Damn Cam...thank you!

750ml growler filled 8/1/2014, poured into a Lawson's snifter 8/10/2014.

A- Hazy deep orange body, one finger white head with the right amount of retention and rings of lacing. Great lookin' beer.

S- Juicy citrus, grapefruit and sweet bready pale malt. I don't know how this smells so good, but it does. Again this is really dang juicy. I understand where the name comes from now.

F- Somehow, this beer tastes better than it smells. Citrus, oranges, grapefruits, mango, passion fruit, bread and caramel with more oranges and a slightly grassy citrus finish. Really juicy but balanced. Fantastic stuff.

M- Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a nice peppy carbonation. Phenomenal and very drinkable. Juicy, citrus zesty finish that is bitter but just the right amount of bitter grassiness to keep it interesting without interfering with drinkability.

O- Fantastic IPA. This one is worth its weight in gold... and more. Probably the most enjoyable single IPA I've had the chance to drink. I will have to obtain more of these on a regular basis!

Lots of peach and mango flavored and aromas. Really balanced and absolutely delicious. Not a super hop Bomb but a really nuanced and balanced ipa.
