Pour from a 64 oz counter pressure filled growler into a Treehouse tulip glass. The beer was kegged this morning so an IPA doesn't get much fresher than this.
A - Unfiltered IPA porn. This beer pours a gorgeous hazy peach/orange body. Super hazy and holding it up to the light just illuminates that perfect color. Three fingers of an off-white head with sticky lacing and long lasting retention. Thick edging sticks around the whole time. I can't imagine a beer looking any better than this.
S - I had a few pours of this earlier and saved half of it to properly review later. When I reopened the growler I got a release of carbonation and with it a blast of rich and sweet tropical notes. In the glass I get layers of bitter grapefruit, sweet yet under ripe peaches, mango, and a faint touch of biscuits.
T - A rather unique hop profile that really makes itself stand out from other IPA's. Bitter grapefruit lead into super sweet concentrated peach juice. Its almost tropical, but the level of sweetness really points toward a peach or apricot for me. Finishes with a touch of clean crackers and a quick hit of bitterness. It starts off being very concentrated, juicy, and sweet but it quickly transitions into a very clean and refreshing finish.
M - Medium bodied with a nice level of carbonation. The level of bitterness is just perfect here, quick and intense but fades away pleasantly. Crazy drinkable.
O - For a beer that is being brewed out of a shed in a guys front yard in Central Massachusetts...this is just fucking phenomenal stuff. Totally impressed and left wishing I had purchased many, many more growlers of this. The next Hill Farmstead? Probably not. But I am very lucky to have this place so close to me.

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.
