Bursting with 1.6 oz per gallon of American hops, Julius is loaded with notes of passionfruit, mango, and citrus. At 6.5% alcohol, it is refreshing and freakishly drinkable.

Treehouse is making some serious moves! I know Julius has been their flagship beer for a few years, but I finally got a few bottles a couple of weeks back. Unbelievably complex yet drinkable Imperial IPA. Poured into a Treehouse tulip. ALL of their beers have great lacing on the glass, but this one especially. Its a beautiful golden orange hazy glow. Mouthfeel is big and soft with great citrusy and grapefruit notes. The description they list on this beer is spot on. I get why people wait in lines for this beer. Its THAT good. These guys are making noise in this industry, and they are only getting better!!

Awesome!

Poured into a Treehouse Tulip from a 750ml bottle filled at the brewery today.

A: Cloudy bronze/amber color. 2 finger soapy head that hangs around and produces great sticky lacing. Exactly the start I look for in an IPA.

S: Great powerful nose on this one. Tropical fruits and pine are present. Nose changes as beer warms.

T: Delicious! Tropical fruits up front. Juicy Mango, papaya and more in the front of your mouth. Pine in the back leads to a great bitter finish that lingers.

M: light carbonation with a full body feel that leaves a delicious coating in the mouth.

O: Pretty close to perfect for me. I would drink this IPA all of the time. If I made one myself it would be modeled after this. It also doesn't hurt that the place is really cool to visit and the people are great! Tree House is going places and I'm glad to be along for the ride.

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.
