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. (699 characters)

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. (867 characters)

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++ (494 characters)

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 (631 characters)

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! (584 characters)

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! (636 characters)

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. (311 characters)

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. (235 characters)

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. (277 characters)

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. (585 characters)

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? (289 characters)

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. (285 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Fresh 16oz. can poured into a snifter tasting glass.

A=Straw but slight orange hue, super hazy, glowing, thick frothy white head, lacing that won't quit.

S=Hops, Hops, Hops, so much fresh hops, makes my nose feel moist with hop oil (all of this is good IMO) Citrus and pine are most noticeable with a dank and resinous follow through.

T=The flavor of fresh hops is strong with this one. Citrus and grass, resinous, dankness, pine. Super strong hop flavors but surprisingly balanced and not overpowering. A bitterness keeps trying to overpower you, but it never did, must have enough malt backing to keep it smooth.

M=Moderate level of carbonation with a full bodied presence.

O=After trying Julius (Tree House) earlier in the week for the first time, IMO this is superior. They are both great world-class IPA's but this one had some real pop in flavor and aroma that I found irresistible. (900 characters)

Marijuana is the sister plant to hops many Breweries say. This been has a weed type taste. Very different beer. Nice and hoppy. All types of fruit explosions come off this taste.. (179 characters)

Been looking forward to having this for a while. A lot of Tree House fans seem to hold this one above Julius, and I believe they're right. Enjoyed a 16oz pour on tap at the 11th Annual Hophead Throwdown. This beer is super fruity, dank, and even has a bubblegum-like sweetness. Super smooth mouthfeel makes this beer disturbingly drinkable. Loved it. (350 characters)

Look: Dense peachy orange color in my Tulip glass. Cannot see through glass. One finger hear, nice lacing
Smell: Citrus orange and grapefruit. Less orange and sweet that Tree House Julius.
Taste: Like it smells, nice hops and citrus from start to middle to finish - super balanced
Feel: As good as many of the darker beers, very very creamy.

Overall: Citrus nose with a balanced hop presence that does not overpower but hits you right away, and stays with you before you finish and after words. A delightful beer (517 characters)

Picked up a few 750ml bottles of this on my first visit to the brewery. Great place, great guys, great beer. This IPA is bursting with out of this world flavor and it goes down way too easy. As much as I love Julius I can see why this is quickly getting a following. Get some if you can. (291 characters)

I like this beer better than Julius and it's not close (and I like Julius).

Love the murky look (I know others knock that).

The aroma is off the hook. Pure pineapple. Some slightly sweet malty breadiness behind it.

Flavor follows suit with pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and a touch of onion on the extreme finish. The taste of onion or chive does become more prominent as you finish it but it's not a deterent.

Mouthfeel is silky smooth.

Just fantastic. Might be my favorite IPA right now. (499 characters)

A: Perfect. Nice super cloudy pale orange, good white head, nice lacing.
S: Hop bomb, tons of piney, resiny smell, with some citrus and fruit on the back
T: Just like the nose. Holy mother of hops. You get a real nice dank, hoppy, piney, resin taste at first. Then some fruits/citrus on the mid, then the end is right back to hops with a nice semi bitter finish and some hop oil.
F: Slight downside i felt it was a little to thin. Looking at it and its cloudy and lacing i wanted it to be a little thicker. But perfect carbonation and that perfect resin oil sticks to your toungue.

O: Another amazing beer from tree house, isn't as juicy as julius but holy crap this is like sucking on some hops. (698 characters)
