4.18/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750ml swing-top growler, obtained fresh from the brewery about an hour ago.

A: Murky and hazy on the pour, like swamp water. Orange with tinges of ruby red. An inch and a half of white head settles shortly. Spotty lacing. This looks like something that came out of a juicer. Not the most appealing beer to behold.

S: Dank and tropical on the nose. Lots of mango puree, pineapple, peach, apricot, mandarin orange, grapefruit. Hemp and dank hop oils. Herbal and a touch oniony. Faint whiffs of a grainy malt base.

T: Fresh and bold hop flavors. Burst of mandarin orange, blood orange, and mango. Pineapple, apricot, peach, white grapefruit et al. Hemp seed. Pine resin. Firm and even level of bitterness throughout. Background taste of tropical esters and a hint of peppery alcohol. Malt base is barely perceptible, just faint whispers of caramel, bread, and grain. One last explosion of fresh citrus fruits and leafy bitter herbs toward the end rides it out into a lingering finish.

M: Medium body. The texture is creamy and slightly chewy, creating a little more substance, heft, and fullness in the mouth. Slight prickling carbonation.

O: So it looks like something that came out of a juicer. It won't win any awards based on its appearance. It also tastes like something that came out of a juicer, but in this case that's a good thing. This is extremely vibrant and fresh-tasting straight from the source. Comparisons have been made between Treehouse beers and the brews that Hill Farmstead creates. I would say that's fair. Both breweries make beers that have that hand-crafted rough around the edges feel, but with a freshness and 'pop' that really satisfies. If you find yourself in the area, it is absolutely worth the trek to this remote brewery.

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.
