Poured from a 750 mL growler into a tulip. This was filled yesterday, a little over 24 hours ago.

Appearance: Pours a translucent amber/gold and leaves a nice, fluffy, two-finger, white head.

Smell: Light pine, mild citrus, some pepper and mild spices as well. Fairly subtle aroma.

Taste: Big malt backbone with flavors of light mango, peaches, citrus rinds, earthy tones. Some hop bitterness towards the end.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. Some hop bitterness is found in the finish.

Overall: I would call this a malt-forward IPA as opposed to the real hop-forward Julius. Fairly refreshing and definitely not bad.

Serving type: growler

750mL swing top growler bought at the brewery less than 24hrs ago. Pours a semi translucent vibrant amber color with over an inch of frothy white head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is sweet with some mango, pineapple and sweet pine. The taste is sweet pine with some tropical fruits, namely mango and pineapple. Resinous and oily. Bitter pine at the finish. Creamy, oily mouthfeel. Bitter throughout. Has some of the similar flavors to Julius (pineapple and mango) but Sap is a fitting name because this one is more of a piney IPA. Pretty easy to drink. Overall another great IPA from Tree House.

I don't often write reviews, but these guys deserve more than just a simple 1-5 rating.

Stopped by the brewery today. First time going on a Saturday, and the line was nonexistent.

Poured from a 750ml growler into a Tree House tulip-ish glass.

A: 1/2 inch perfectly white head. Transparent copper/orange color. Low head retention, but lots of lacing.

S: Sweet, candied sugars from the malts come in right behind an earthy (only slightly floral), pungent hop character. Overall, I guess you could describe the nose as very balanced.

T: Definitely a cloying aspect to the hops that knocks the balance toward the hop side of things. Still plenty of that candied sugar taste, but the taste is much more hoppy than the nose. Pine mixed with a bit of mango and peach. Plenty of bitterness in the finish as well.

M: Medium to low carb, just where it should be for an IPA. Pretty big body as well, which is how I feel like an earthy IPA should be. Smooth.

O: This is not your girlfriend's fruity, citra IPA. This is a beer with earthy, piney characteristics that get all up in your grill. It's a hop bomb, but a fairly balanced bomb. After all, a man can't drink Julius every night...OR CAN HE?

Sidenote: Maybe if John Mortarelli would have himself a couple pints of this sappy goodness maybe he wouldn't be such a Turd Ferguson
