750ml growler poured into a tulip. Enormous thanks to MattOC for this one.
Pours a hazy orange with a dense, frothy one-finger head that subsides over the course of a minute or so, leaving plentiful cobwebby lacing.
Smells...wow. Smells like orange juice laced with weed, if such a thing were to exist. Huge orange with pronounced mango and passionfruit underpinnings, as well as dank and earthy floral hop notes. Neck-and-neck with Bissell Brothers' The Substance for best-smelling single IPA I've ever had.
Taste follows the nose almost to a tee, and that is by no means a bad thing. Opens with a tremendous burst of fresh-squeezed orange juice, with passionfruit, mango, pine sap, and lightly toasted caramel malt appearing mid-palate. Initial sweet orange and tangerine note transitions smoothly into blood orange and ruby red grapefruit towards the mid- and back-palate, with a lingering citric and lightly earthy bitterness.
Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation, lush and slick.
Amazingly smooth, amazingly drinkable. Absolutely top-notch. Once again, huge thanks to MattOC for giving me this growler.

Thanks, jlindros. The beer is bright orangey gold in color. It's quite hazy, which I rather like for an IPA.. Not that I really dislike clear IPAs. Eh. The head is white and fairly vigorous for a growler pour. Lots of lacing. Good retention. Even after a few minutes and many sips, there's still a solid coating of bubbles on top. The aroma is massively juicy and full of hop flavor. Citrus for days. I remember reading BuckeyeNation use the term "electric tangerine" in a review; that would be a very apt descriptor for this beer. It smells like tangerine juice with a healthy shot of lime. There's also pineapple, kiwi, raspberry, grapefruit and pine. It's like a wonderful citrus drink spiked with a tropical fruit background. Mouthwatering stuff. Little malt presence, which is just fine with me. Taste is similarly big on juicy hop flavors. Pale malt sweetness is well in the background. Tangerine, grapefruit and lime hoppiness dominates with tropical fruits providing highlights. Moderate bitterness. Fairly dry. Tangerine rind finish. Extremely easy to drink. Light, pleasant feel. Seems like normal carbonation. Some hop oiliness. Each sip makes me want more. I feel a bit bad not sharing this growler, but I'm also glad that I didn't. This is a fantastic IPA, fully deserving its acclaim. Tree House continues to impress.

750ml flip top growler that was filled at 515pm today!
poured into a pair of HF wine stems.
Appearance: yellow bodied beer with large bubble creamy white head that 3 fingers tall. Lots of thick lacing and head has good staying power.
Smell: Tropical fruits and citrus. Hint of bready malts.
Taste: Almost moderate bitterness level. Orange peel, tangerines, and tropical fruits. Especially mango, papaya and pineapple. Light juicy pine resin.
Mouthfeel: light bodied almost a medium body beer. Moderate carbonation. Creamy and juice mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
Overall: This has a strong reputation and it is just as good as any Hill Farmstead IPA in my opinion. I get the Orange Julius thing that the brewer was going for every time that I burp, all I taste is oranges and orange rinds.
