Growler filled yesterday at the brewery. So glad this came back around so I can finally review it and enjoy it. I can't think of a better time to drink this, Sunday afternoon, waning days of summer, heavy thunderstorms reign down outside, with torrential downpours. It was the kind of rain that forced a 10 mph drive home from the supermarket as the rain poured in sheets over the windshield making it almost impossible to see, as well as a flood of water cascading down the street almost making it possible to swim the car home.

Cracking the growler, again filled to the tippity top as Tree House usually does, pours into my Tree House tulip glass with a stream connected to the side of the glass, and forms a decent 1 finger foamy bubbly head that has a tough time staying at first, but then seems to settle on a nice head covering, with some decent lacing, not as great as Julius does these days, but still a nice head and decent lacing. The beer is a mostly hazy apricot wheat orange blond colored beer.

Nose erupts out the gate, as soon as i popped the swing top, those perfumey aromas started to trickle out, but then the pour just released the beast of aromas, great hop presence, a cross of mostly citrusy slight tropical fruit hops, with a touch of a grassy pine and aromatic floral hop presence. The hops first bring that citrus note, layers of tangerine, orange juice, as well as light stone fruit like an apricot and peach aroma, nectarine, etc. A hint of a tropical fruit comes in behind that, you really have to look for it to find it though, a touch of a papaya and guava. Then, the citrus and fruits seem to disappear and give way to light resinous musty fresh hop resin, bringing a hint of pine and earthy forest, but not a lot of that. Then finally a light malty sweet kick attempts to balance it all, with a touch of an amber sweet malt.

Taste is like a fistful of hops melting in my mouth. The creamy malt base really does it justice as it balances and melts the hops all over the tongue so it seems to get a nice representation everywhere. The hops again present themselves in waves, and once again with the citrus. An orange julius flavor, or creamsicle like flavor thanks to the creamy malt feel, with again that big juice tangerine flavor, big time tangerine in this like a tangerine bomb went off in my mouth. Then into tropical fruit again, light with hint of grapefruit pith, papaya, just a touch of musty passion fruit and guava even. Some nice pineapple hidden in there too. Then again into stone fruit, just keeps coming with fruit, light apricot, peach, nectarine, and even a touch of melon, quite nice. And following a similar pattern to the nose, a final push of spicy piney hops comes in as if to say, "don't forget about us", with an oily hop resin and little musty hop cone like sucking the sap right off a hop cone, with a nice dank resin. As I mentioned before, the malts bring a nice slightly sweet balance to offset the fairly big bitterness and what should be a touch of warming booze but it seems to disappear, and bring a nice creamy taste and touch of an amber malt flavor. Finish is drier too but sticks to the mouth a bit thanks to a mild sweetness and the creamy feel, with a nice long lingering bitterness that seems to be just the right amount, light pine and spicy hop presences, a bit more citrus and fruit but not a lot of either, more just a hop presence.

Mouth is med bodied but a nice creamy feel, the carbonation is a bit on the lighter side, but still nice and goes well with the creamy feel.

Overall what else can I say, this is an awesome IPA. Just a touch below Julius, but really up there, a different beast than Julius. This brings some of the tropical fruit, citrus, stone fruit, etc, but blends in a nice piney resin, slight spicy earthy touch, and that nice creamy malt base with an almost perfect balance. I really wish you guys would make more of this!

Reviewed from notes as I received a growler of this from BPK59. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours an orange hazy hue with a one finger white head that fades to leave a soapy blanket with nice lacing and halo.

S - Dank citrus pops out of this along with nice wet hops and light tropical mango/pineapple. Light malty sweetness and pine resin as well.

T - Bitter hop oils and resins. Lots of the tropical fruits are gone sadly but replaced by a bitter pine forest. Nicely done but a bit deceiving.

M - Mouthfeel is solid. Nice, oily pine bitter finish with nice carbonation. Well done.

O - Overall this was a delicious fresh IPA. Wish the tropical hops were on the flavour instead of just the nose but still, enjoyable.

brought by a friend of a friend at that friend's daughter's 2nd birthday party.

Hazy blond color with all the foamy accoutrements of a fine IPA. Aroma is farm stick your nose in a bag of hops fresh peppery citrus. Very grapefruit juice flavor with more peppery, moss hop spice and a distinctive farminess not unlike Hill Farmstead beers. Dry and resinous. So good.

For what it's worth we had Green and Sap back to back and I like this a lot better.

750ml growler filled at the brewery earlier today and poured into Tree House glass.

A- Pours a slightly golden hazy brown with about a quarter finger of white frothy head that recedes fairly fast leaving some light lacing. Not too much carbonation.

S- Nice floral presence with green hops balanced nicely with a light matly backbone. Notes of pine, slight sap, light citrus, a bit of pineapple, and light sweet malts. Nice pleasant aroma that has a decent aroma strength.

T- Fairly floral presence of green hops mixed with pineapple, light tangerine, sappy pine, finishes fairly bitter with a nice lingering hop presence. Nicely balanced.

M- Medium bodied, very drinkable, fairly low carbonation.

O- This was a nice IPA that had a fairly strong floral presence to it. It definitely wasn't my favorite IPA and I liked Eureka considerably more, but I think Tree House definitely achieved what they were trying to go for. The thing I liked the most in this beer was the balance- the hops and malts blended very well to provide an interesting and fairly tasty IPA.
