Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jaasen64 on 01-12-2013

Our cross-continental IPA. Made with Australian and American hops, this citrus heavy IPA opens up in the glass with notes of pineapple, tangerine, and orange rind. It’s sharply bitter and nearly 8% ABV. . . The name comes from the initial batch in which, post boil, the wort looked green from so much hop particulate floating around. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Poured from a fresh can into a tulip glass.

Look - Golden, Hazy with a slight orange hue.

Smell - IPA HEAVEN! Citrus with a little tropical fruit and tons of dank pine.

Taste - Hop Nirvana! Tons of fresh citrus, more specifically juicy grapefruit accompanied by bitter piny hops. A true hop lovers IPA, a beer with no restraint very bold and very delicious.

Feel - Nice carbonation, mouth covered with bitter hops leaving my lips smacking for more. Not for the faint of heart. For those that appreciate this style, Green is a World Class beer - my new favorite beer (period).

Overall - World Class. It doesn't get any better for a hop lover - I highly recommend this beer to any/all hop lovers.

16oz can (thanks Darwin!!) poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass

A - Pours completely opaque. Almost looks like blended fruit juice in a glass. Incredible.

S - The best nose on a beer I've ever smelled. Explosive juiciness, grapefruit, oranges, there is an awesome herbaceous note (think fresh cut basil). Bubble gum is there (think Fruit Stripe from the 80s) too. Awesome.

T - Mind blowing. The creamiest IPA I've ever had. The mouth feel is ridiculous. I've never had a beer like this. Crazy citrus, passion fruit. Intense. Oranges, grapefruit peel, orange pith, pineapple. Awesome bitterness middle of the mouth, but that sweet fruit juice comes back on the back end to make it stupid balanced. Dry finish.

O - This is hands down the best IPA I have ever had. For me, it doesn't get better. I need more Tree House beers. This beer blew my mind.

I picked this up at the brewery in a 2L growler
A: Hazy, light orange in color with a thin, white head.
S: Strong notes of melon, papaya, citrus, earthy spiciness and some malty candied fruit sweetness.
T: Similar to nose with a strong taste of melons.
M: Extremely balanced with a mild hop kick combined with malty sweetness. Almost no bitterness or dryness.
O: My favorite beer yet!! I loved this!! It was very much like Julius except instead of using orange it was switched with melons. A++

Julius gets the bulk of the (well deserved) hype but this guy stands right there next to it and plenty of people will tell you it's better. This thing GLOWS a bright super hazy golden yellow and fills the room with pineapple ad guava notes. Taste is a Mike Tyson punch to the tastebuds of super rich tropical fruit juiciness - pineapple, guava, sweet ripe orange, and lime. The type of beer that makes you forget you're even drinking beer. Again find myself scratching my head as to how these guys produce beers of this quality over and over again. Flawless east coast IPA, even the Russians would give this one 5s across the board

From a fresh can poured into a teku class.

L: very cloudy, hazey and murky. Orange and yellow in color. Beautiful 3/4 fluffy inch head.

S: wow tons of citrus, very grapefruity a little piney.

T: At first sip you are smacked in the face with a wave of citrus and hops! Wow! Nice little bitter punch. At finish notes of pineapple can be tasted. This is what IPA should taste like.

F: medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very good beer for hot summer nights in new england.

O: This is my favorite beer of the beers tree house routinely cans and my favorite American IPA for sure!

Got this in a trade. The hype is real with Tree House. They arguably make the best hoppy beers in the country right now. And many beer geeks would argue that they also make the best stouts as well. All this with only being about four years old as a brewery.

With that said, this MIGHT be the best IPA I've ever had. I liked it better than Julius (even though that has the perfect score here on BA and Green only has a 99). I guess to each their own.

The look is beautiful in a glass. Hazy, opaque, bright tangerine color. So NE style.

The smell is truly glorious. So fruity. Pineapple, oranges, orange cream soda even. How does Tree House achieve this? Pure magic.

The taste is so smooth. Fluffy, even. Creamy mouthfeel, almost milk-stout like. Crazy for an IPA. Pineapple, orange, orange sorbet, orange cream soda. Tree House also has this unique, bubble gum like flavor that is so unique and special. There's a medium bitterness on the back end with a nice hoppy, herbaceous, fresh greens taste (hence the name of the beer, I'm guessing). Don't let the name fool you, though. This beer is a massive tropical fruit bomb.

Overall, this beer is a 100/100.

(Update, 10/9/15)
The beer comes in a hazy deep gold, pale amber color. Completely hazy. A sexy beer.

The aroma is orange sorbet for days, pineapple, hints of Juicy Fruit, passionfruit, dough malt, orange zest, bright pine air freshener.

The flavor follows with as described, tangerine, orange sorbet, citrus candy, pineapple, yellow grapefruit. Waves of doughy malts and a creamy mouthfeel. Then onto an herbaceous bitterness, green vegetables of escarole and kale.

Up there with In Perpetuity as the Best Tree House IPA, and possibly the best IPA ever.

The beer comes in a completely opaque peach color. A very unique and beautiful brew.

The aroma smacks of Juicy Fruit, pear juice, citrus peel, pineapple, lots of citrus and tropical candy/gum aromas.

The flavor follows with that Juicy Fruit gum, pear flavor. More orange, tangerine. Lots of doughy yeast flavor. There's a drying with some pine and herbal/tea bitterness on the back end.

This beer explodes out of the glass with intriguing hop flavor, a perfect malt bill and mouthfeel, and bitterness to balance the brew out. It beats Julius and is up there with Susan as best IPAs.

This is the second best beer I've ever had, it is absolutely amazing. Some people who had it with me were not as impressed, to each their own I suppose but it's my favorite IPA I've had narrowly beating triple sunshine

Look - Looks like mango/pineapple juice in the glass. That killer signature TH look. Haze for days!
Smell - The aroma that comes out of the glass is unbelievable! A complete tropical juice bomb. Pineapples, mangos, tangerines, and limes with a slight dankness underneath all those glorious tropical fruits.
Taste - A heavenly hop assault on the palate. Insanely tropical, citrusy, herbaceous with some piney/pithy/rind bitterness on the back end.
Feel - Smooth, creamy and mouth coating. No clue where the 7.6% is.....

Overall - Completely blown away by this one. Ranks up there as one of my favorites! Was a pleasure drinking this from start...to finish.

L - Pours into a chalice a cloudy, mellow yellow...or two shades darker than Mountain Dew!

S - FRESH hops...like smelling fresh hop cones collected into a bag! Citrus. Grass. Hint of diacetyl.

T - Follows the nose. Citrus, fresh, fresh, fresh hops. Grassy.

F - Refreshingly effervescent, dry, dry, dry! Not a lot of sticky hop oils...clean. Hint of diacetyl in the finish.

O - Incredibly fresh hop aroma, fresh hop taste. Just a supremely thirst-quenching experience and a GIGANTIC hop presence. Tree House Brewery in Massachusetts is currently producing some of the most best tasting craft brews in the country. DRINK IT!

Daaaaaamn. This is good. Pours an opaque peach orange color. The nose is noticeable once I cracked the can! So fruity with pineapple, oranges, mango and stone fruit! This is what air fresheners need to be! The body is extremely juicy and drinkable. Could go through can after can of this stuff. There is a restrained bitterness in the finish that balances the beer out perfectly. Perfection.

Nice hops with a good blend of tropical flavors. Big foam on the head. Aroma hits you right in the face. Just a great ipa. Had this poured fresh from the brewery in a growler. Had a glass with fried onion rings with baked balls of chicken. Definitely an ipa I would recommend to any beer lover

Had my third Green today. Decided to give quick review. Great beer. Cloudy yellow-orange color. Poured into a pint glass because I'm a simple man. Grapefruit flavor that morphs into a slightly sweet cream flavor followed quickly by a hoppy finish. Then the cycle starts over again.

With a recent trip to Tree House Brewing Company, I was able to try a bunch of their amazing beers. This is up there with the Julius in terms of my favorite. It's a near perfect DIPA with juicy flavors and a full mouth feel. Until I can land some King Julius and Haze, this will remain numero dos on my TH list.

Best beer ever and out of a can. Creamy mouthfeel. Hops aroma comes out of the can like two sensuous hands grabbing you behind the head. The beer tastes like sweet fruity hops with a modest malt backbone. I want a lot more of this.

Pours a hazy peach-tangerine. Notable fresh cut hop presence on nose. Grass, pine, passionfruit, citrus mélange, passionfruit. Taste earthy orange, lime kaffir, sweet pineapple aloft soft malt background. Soft body, smooth feel and the best hoppy beer that I've had from them.

Julius gets a lot of the hype, but this beer has it beat, especially if you are in search of a hop-loaded beast that will wreck your palate. Yet, it's never enough to make you want to stop drinking. If you like Heady Topper, this is a must try. Do I dare say this one is better than Heady?

Canned 11/18, consumed 11/18. It's not often an IPA like this lives up to expectations, but this one exceeded my expectations. I've been chasing this for some time after having Julius for the first time earlier this year, and I think it's better than Julius, so juicy and dank, looks like a double dry hopped beer, and drinks so smooth. Worth seeking out.

Just a beautiful beer. Big frothy head. Super creamy brew. Big citrus nose. Taste is citrus and dank all at once. Perfect balance. One of the best I've had - up there with Hill Farmstead for sure. A touch bitter in the finish but it's clean and not lingering. Pretty much perfection.

This beer is absolutely gorgeous in a glass. Pours a pithy orange haze that resembles fresh squeezed OJ. Nose is that of cantaloupe and peach with green herbaceous quality. Taste resembles the same with an addition of orange and pineapple dancing around finishes with a soft bitterness. Orange sorbet is spot on with this one mouthfeel is just as creamy as I remember it being. Thank Goodness for green!
