Wow.

They had Julius on tap when I went, so considering that is one of my favorite beers on the planet I was planning just to get a few bottles of Julius and be on my way.

Curiosity got the better of me though and I decided to grab a bottle of Sap as well.

VERY glad I did. As soon as I smelled this beer I was blown away. Absolutely fantastic nose on it, tropical/sweet/floral.... smells great.

Taste is on point as well. Maybe not quite the level of Julius but it's damn close. It has the tropical peach/mango flavor I love, but the finish is a little more pine/bitter.

Delicious. World class IPA.

Super fresh beer, poured that day at the brewery. The most interesting aspect of this beer is the smell- hugely piney with a healthy serving a citrus notes. Spicy backbone with a blunt hop finish. A really great beer. Of note: the brewery and staff were very cool, laid back atmosphere, a little out of the way but well worth the trip- as one could tell with license plates from nearly every New England state and New York state.

A dusty yellow amber color with a giant off white head and lots of chunky lacing left on the tulip glass. The aroma brings strong but balanced lemon pine, bright yet bready good. The flavor offers an aggressive earthy, leafy hops accompanied by a sweet buttery bready malt. The hop has some astringency but may reflect that I got the last growler out of that keg. I get a hint of bubblegum and some leafy ideas. It mellows as your tongue adjusts to the bite and it settles into a very agreeable IPA that was indeed worth the 1 hour plus wait at the lovable little country brewery. The body is medium but the feel is a refreshing tingly deal with decent drinkability for any hop lover. A nice introduction to Tree House.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is transparent and golden with a broken white head. The aroma offers dank hops, tropical fruit. A delicious hop forward beer. Citrus and fresh hops. Smooth with some lingering hop bitterness and orange peel. Really tasty.
