Thanks to BColton1 for being a great growler mule. Served in a standard pint. Pours a dull golden orange with a slight haze to the clarity and a dense, rocky, two-inch, cream-colored head. Head eventually settles into a consistent 1/8th inch cap with textured, semi-concentric bands of lacing revealed as the brew recedes. Nose expresses citrus, a slight piney aroma and a hint of tropical fruit. Taste consistent with nose; however, there is also an herbal character, but not overly bitter, a light toasted malt quality and a hint of spice. Great mouthfeel on this beer - medium-light in body with a creamy texture (almost reminds me of a cask offering) and a trace of oiliness. Overall - these guys are killing it. Julius is top notch - not a bitter hop bomb, but a complex and extremely drinkable American IPA.

750ml growler (filled earlier today) into a Gandhi-Bot tulip.

A: Hazy pale orange body under an inch of softly frothy off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves delicate rings of lace. Quite nice.

S: Nothing but hops, with emphasis on tropical fruitiness - mango, papaya, lychee and grapefruit. Some pine and spruce resin as well. Complex and excellent.

T: Grapefruit and mango up front, with pine and floral notes behind. It's delicious, but a mix of extreme resinous bitterness and faint malt stickiness make for a rather heavy finish. Extremely flavorful, extremely tasty, but a little unbalanced.

M: Smooth, lightly-carbonated medium body. Excellent.

O: Terrific beer, and rightly acclaimed. I'm a little put off by the heaviness of the finish, but too much flavor is a wonderful problem for an IPA to have. Really happy it happened to be on tap during my first visit to the brewery.

Cheers!

1790th Review on BA
Growler to Tree House tulip
750ml

Thanks to Rudzud and Jlindros for this one

App- A very soft and hazy orange with a bit of peach pink in there. A bit cloudy and a bit dense in the center. A small one finger head was there and leaves some good cling down the side. A bit of a pond water top with random bubble patches. Looks good in the glass.

Smell- This is a good smelling IPA. A bit soft on the bombardment of hops, but instead is dominated by a lot of tropical fruits. The citrus notes really dominant and control the whole thing. A light alcohol wofts up on a big pull of the nose.

Taste- I really enjoyed the domination of the fruits on this one. Certainly controlled by the aggressive hopping on this one. The malts are subtle and take a while to find on this one. The dominate citrus is very well layered and one sip will give some mango while the next is a little peach and passionfruit.

Mouth- To me this was a balance of a medium to a slightly thin body with a very good carbonation level. Saturated by hoppy and floral remants the residual flavors are citrus dominated with a little bit of booze.

Drink- A very well layered and delicious IPA. Thank you Jared and Matt for giving me the chance to review this one. The floral and citrus work wonders together.

Received as a birthday gift from BPK59 and poured into a tulip. Guess these guys only do growler fills on Saturdays. Secret recipe for this one I guess. Have a pretty good idea on the hop they used though.

A - Pours a hazy dark, kinda grayish, orange with a nice two finger head that faded somewhat quickly to leave some light side lacing and a thin cloud/halo. I chuckled when I poured it as the colour resembled that of Filmishmish. Could this be another ugly duckling type beer?

S - Aaaaand upon smelling it my initial thoughts are realized. An ugly duckling indeed!Mother of mercy...EXPLOSION of citrus rind. Orange, tangello, clementine, and tangerines. No malts, not getting any bready yeasts. Just pure, unadulterated hops. Holy fuck!

T - Uhh, yah. Where did this come from huh? So, like the nose it is an explosion of oranges and tangerines. Lots and lots of hop oils here, delicious hops. So much great orange and citrus notes. Super, super faint bubblegum buried in the citrus. Really cant convey just how well the citrus pops here.

M - Mouthfeel is very, very nice here. Solid carbonation, super sessionable with a lingering bitter citrus peel aftertaste.

O - Summit? Galaxy? I dont know, just as long as I can get this beer more often. So, this is good. This is very, very good. This is almost like a poor mans Hill Farmstead IPA, in that you don't have to drive 8 total damn hours for some. This IPA is, in my opinion, completely on par with a Shaun Hill IPA, minus the appearance. The nose, the flavours, out standing. Mind = blown

750mL growler poured into a pint glass

The body sits a bright orange color with a cloudy appearance. A firm two finger off-white cap rose and fell slowly, leaving some sheeting lace covering the glass.

Bright oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, and tropical fruit--mangoes and pineapples, primarily. The fruits leap out of the glass. Some lightly toasted malt provide a firm foundation.

Sweet, juicy tropical and citrus fruits coat the palate. Waves of mangoes, pineapple, grapefruit, oranges, and tangerines. A blanket of malt hangs in the back. A very mild bitterness comes in late and lingers for a little while. The focus her is more on the juicy, sweet fruit and not the bitterness.

Smooth, medium body with a mild lingering bitterness that is counterbalanced by the big sweet fruit notes.

A very nice IPA in all aspects. I would prefer more bitterness to really fall in love, but that would be splitting hairs. This is a very nice beer.

A-Pours a turbid orange color with a great head of froth. The body has some glow and the head retains well.

S-Exactly what I want from the nose. Aromatic, ripe, exotic and juicy. Melon, citrus, pineapple. Love the wild yet structured hoppiness. A bouquet of hoppiness. A sweet, doughy maltiness rounds it out.

T-First I must comment in the beer's finish. After the initial flavors astound the taste buds, Julius finishes with an awesome, hoppy flavor that seems to be completely separate from the beginning. Every other aspect of the flavor is excellent as well. Freshly squeezed fruit juice hoppiness everywhere. Mango, abundant grapefruit, pineapple...everything I look for.

M-Very drinkable. The bitterness complements the hoppy flavors perfectly. Mellow carbonation. Juicy.

O/D-Finally got to try this. This one was very high on my hit list. Julius did not disappoint. Its just how I want my IPA to taste. The brewers are cool people too. Delicious beer.
