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.

Beautiful, hazy orange and yellow color with steady one finger head and nice lacing. Aroma really pops with bright citrus, like juice from a freshly peeled orange. Also get pineapple, grapefruit, guava, and lime. Taste reveals a hop bomb. Not much malt at all. It has a bright lemon-lime kick with peach and stone fruit on the front end and grapefruit pith on the finish. There's pineapple too. This is really fruity as it warms without getting too sweet. Hops really shine through from start to finish. The mouth feel is medium to full, coating the mouth with hops, yet it remains crisp and pops with lively carb. World class IPA.

Look is really nice and orange. I expected more from smell. Taste is very interesting. Very hoppy and very malty. Very citrusy and hoppy upfront and malty and bitter at the finish. Taste is good but I really love the feel. The carbonation is crisp and on point. Overall, worth the trade. Thanks keithengelke

Canned about two weeks ago. Tulip glass.

A: Pours an opaque orange/pale color with two fingers of airy, khaki head. Wide swaths of lacing.

S: Very aromatic. Fresh cut grass, tangerine, apricot, white grapefruit.

T: Fragrant citrus and tropical notes, pine pine and pine, decent sweetish malt presence, finishing with a mild-moderate bitterness on the back end.

M: Medium body and light, soft carbonation.

O: Bursting with aroma and flavor. Highly drinkable. A bit less bitterness and malt presence would elevate this even further.

Pours golden haze with a decent head and nice lacing. Aromas of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is almost as great as the aromas. A well balanced mouthfeel with nice carbonation making me want more. Thanks Sulli520 for sharing and first time having TH

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

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.

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.

Pour is cloudy light orange with a good bit of tight off white head, solid retention. Nose is heavily hopped, has a light grain backbone, tons of bitter grapefruit, lots of citrus, gets almost plastic like aroma its so hopped and has that musky rind their others have had. Full bodied, well carbonated, very silky on the tongue, high bitterness through the very dry finish. Flavor is super hopped, citrus, tons of bitter grapefruit, almost overly bitter.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a can two weeks old into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Turbid orange to tan. Kind of a peachy color.
Aroma: Tropical fruit (grapefruit, pineapple), peach, and a little cut grass. Smells like juice.
Taste: Follows the nose. Right upfront you get juice: pineapple, peach, and grapefruit. This is followed by some pine, grass, and bitterness. There is also a slight alcohol fummyness. The finish is bitter with some mild fruit notes coming back (I'm getting the peach again).
Feel: Great mouth feel. Bready and it leaves you smacking your lips for more.
Overall is this a great IPA right there in contention with TH Julius.

- 750mL growler (filled 30-Jul-15) poured into Golden Road tumbler on 15-Aug-15

Thanks to marino13412 for the awesome trade.

This one tastes like a great balance between east coast/west coast IPA. Super juicy and creamy maltiness with a grassy, zesty hop profile and a bittering finish. The finish was a little to bitter and salty for my taste.

Overall, preferred this one over Haze and Julius (both are still excellent). This is the beer I'll be most looking forward to if and when I'm headed to MA.

Thanks to rudzud for this one.

L: Cloudy, light orange pour with a solid head.

S: Smells like a bag of fresh hops. Holy cow. Pine, citrus, a hint of tropical fruit (pineapple), along with freshly cut grass.

T: Great complexity of flavor. Pine and slight floral notes on the open, followed quickly by hits of tangerine, pineapple, and resin. Like drinking a hop smoothie.

F: Light and creamy, especially for the flavors.

O: An impressive IPA from Tree House; it's easy to tell that this is loaded with hops. Where many IPAs taste like a hoppy beer, this tastes like pure hops using the beer as a delivery vessel. Looking forward to trying some of their other offerings.

This was a very good ipa, slightly bitter but great feel and odor. Very north east for sure, however i didnt super enjoy how bitter it was, nor was it super floral, so overall, not HF, but great non the less

No date on the can, but assuming it is fresh. Poured into a TH Teku. Very opaque, looks like beer mixed with OJ. Great tropical fruit aroma, smooth with a mild bitter finish. TH never disappoints.

Love this ipa. It has that perfect turbid glowing orange color with a perfect mouthfeel to match. The hop profile just doesnt pop enough to me to get a perfect score. If treehouse would dry hop this with something like mosaic or citra this beer could be a 5.

Super hazy orange with a gold glow, small white head and decent lacing. Notes of pineapple, orange, citrus rind, lemon candy, and lemongrass. Creamy medium body, semi dry and slightly bitter. Amazing IPA!

Poured from a 2 liter growler filled on 7/23/15 and consumed with a buddy of mine on 7/25/15. Fantastic IPA. First couple of sips had a surprisingly bitter taste at the mid-palate and on the back end, but this bitterness almost completely disappeared just a couple of minutes later. Moving forward after the first couple of sips, just five minutes later this beer completely smoothed out almost entirely, and just became another great, crisp and smooth IPA from Tree House. Gives Julius a run for its money, no question about it...

Pours a cloudy hazy orange yellow. Smells like citrusy hops, orange grapefruit? Taste is a citrus explosion getting strong orange flavors and grapefruit/peel bitterness. Hop residue and bitterness sits around in the mouth for a while. Nice slight carbonation.

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.

Call me impressionable, but I was expecting this to taste and smell greener.

It's fruity, smooth, and mild. Does not betray it relatively high ABV.

Smells lightly peaty with large nodes of tangerine. Tastes bready and yeasty up front, juicy tropical fruits in the back. Very nice, but not noticeably nicer than tropical-hopped beers being produced by a dozen other brewers in the state.
