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.

Canned 18 Nov, received in trade with psweendogg. Thanks, Patrick!

As with all the Tree House beers I've had so far, this is hazy with a dense white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose also has the typical TH character - sweet and messy hop juice on a gritty, hop particulate heavy texture. Aromas of fruit - pineapple, pulpy peach and mango, are present. Malt character is minimal, though a sugary sweetness is present. The palate opens with a blend of sugary sweetness and plenty of hop flavor. Fruity pineapple, pulpy orange juice, pulpy peach juice, pulpy mango juice (you get the idea...) are all present. Sweet on the mid-palate with some honey and simple syrup, this beer finishes with a weird chlorophyll-like astringency that's rather unpleasant. Enjoyable fruity flavors are also present, though. Chewy, pulpy, gritty, this is a little disappointing on the palate. The high level of fine carbonation only amplifies the texture. Messy.

Can. Thanks Darrell! Happy Thanksgiving.

Hazy yellowish peach body with a soapy, white head. Melon, pineapple, tart citrus, floral notes. Cantaloupe and juicy oranges. Hop forward and light bodied. A lovely offering from an outstanding brewery.

by fare one of if not my favorite from the treehouse brewing company. this beer has a very similar base as Julius and Alter Ego but with a more piney and less citrusy taste, in a a great way. the mouthfeel is out of this world and has a creamy and full bodied taste. absolutely one of the best brews made by treehouse.

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.

Growler into pint glass.

One inch white head, tight bubbles. Slightly creamy.

Very cloudy/hazy. Looks like i poured a big glass of fruit juice.

Has hints of pineapple. Exotic/tropical fruit scents.
Tastes like pineapple/orange zest, and a bit of grapefruit.

Very good palate feel, medium.. has body.
Surprised by the lacing, very good.

Amazing IPA.
No alcohol in taste whatsoever.

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....if not my favorite! Was a pleasure drinking this from start...to finish.

A less citrusy and more piney IPA than say, Julius. You can tell it has a bit more booze but it's not harsh in any way. Another superior beer from Tree House. I personally have to put this behind Haze and Julius but it's no slouch. I want more.

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

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.

Thick, murky, dank, juicy, tropical, bitter, creamy, herbal. All these characteristics combine to create something world class. But somehow it's not too fruity, bitter, cloying or heavy. It looks, tastes and smells like a beer second only to its other-worldly brother Julius. Like blending an entire field of mango and papaya trees, leaves and all, and pouring it into your glass. Unreal.

Consumed 11/18/15

A: Among the cloudiest IPAs I have ever seen (seems to be a trademark with Tree House) - hazy and cloudy... high turbidity, to put it scientifically - golden orange in color, more or less looks like an extra pulpy orange juice - pours with a medium white head that fades to a small, creamy white cap - leaves some nice streaks of lacing

S: Massively juicy and leafy - big, bright citrus notes, with orange, tangerine, and grapefruit flesh and oily pith - tropical notes, mango and fresh pineapple - big amount of herbal, leafy, and spicy hops as well - prickly and sappy pine, mint, and a touch of green onions, maybe chives - hints of white wine - resinous - floral and spicy, definite Australian hops (a touch of Ella, perhaps?) - lightly sweet and doughy malts

T: Borderline punishing, which is truly impressive - this is a hop puree - juicy, leafy, floral, and spicy - juicy and fleshy orange and grapefruit - citrus zest and rind in abundance - tropical as well, with pineapple, mango, and passion fruit - white wine - leafy, herbal, dank, and spicy - loads of sticky pine, mint, and some green onions - yup, fruits and vegetables - malts have a moderate amount of sweetness, with some light bread and bread dough, maybe a touch of honey - some light dryness in the finish

M: Medium body, very smooth, fuzzy, and creamy (again, it's a hop puree), lightly sticky, but there is some dryness - low carbonation

O: It ain't easy

This beer is insane. I've reviewed over 1000 beers on this site, and I'm struggling to make sense of Green. I should also note that this is my second can. The amount of hops involved in the creation of this beer must be truly astronomical. This should be absolute chaos, but it somehow works. It's not my favorite from Tree House, but it's beyond memorable. I may have more to say after can #3.

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.

Canned Oct 28th 2015, opened Nov 14th 2015

A - Deep opaque pear juice body. Yellowed paper head pours a finger high. Outstanding lace and great retention.

S - Deep, musky green plant nose. Maple, green leaves, aloe, fresh honey wholegrain bread, and a touch of wet moss and bright spearmint.

T - Surprisingly dough-forward profile with orange juice, coriander, touch of spearmint, edge of sea salt, plant stems, a little honey, and cardamom.

M - Smooth, medium body.

O - Deep and musty. An excellent accessible DIPA.

It's actually happened. I'm part of #teamgreen. It's absurd how good one hoppy beer can be. Pineapple, oranges, juicy fruit, super creamy mouthfeel. Beautiful hazy orange color. There's no getting better. Choo choo. All aboard the hype train!

A: Pours a ridiculously hazy pale golden color with a one finger bone white head. Tons of lace pasted on the glass with each sip.

S: Like a crushed up citrus peel smoothie. Pink grapefruit, tangerine pith, orange, starfruit and maybe a light bit of green papaya.

T: This is pretty great. Lots of citrus while never getting too sweet at all. Green papaya, orange, tangerine and grapefruit pith, a smooth pink grapefruit middle and a finish that leaves just a kiss of bitterness. A very delicious IPA. Digging it.

Poured from 2 liter growler bottled on 11/5/2015

A: pale yellow/orange with a 2 finger of fluffy white head. Leaves heavy decadent lacing down the glass. Nice and opaque with a good fresh haze.

S: a little pine up front that gives away to pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Sweetness of papaya as well.

T: sweet papaya, honey goodness. Very little bitterness and a nice clean honey finish.

M: medium body with creamy carbonation. Very nice carbonation that leads to a clean sweet finish.

O: world class beer. Nice sweet finish with a strong nose. I am definitely going back to get more of this.

Poured from a 7 day old 750ml swing top bottled at 7.5% ABV. One of the most remarkable aromatic experiences I've ever had with any beer, not just IPAs. Tree House seems to have made a deal with the devil in order to hit one home run after another. The sweet orange and pineapple aroma is off the charts good.

As hazy as they come in the glass. I don't know if the canned version is this rich in appearance but I absolutely love unfiltered IPAs so I was on cloud nine. Flavors are citrus dominant, perfectly drinkable and bitterness is just totally on point. Alcohol is hidden well, as in you don't even notice its there. Unbelievable lacing, and head formation/retention is the best I've ever seen in an IPA bar none.

Very creamy mouthfeel, between the pulp-like haziness and explosive fleshy orange qualities. I could drink this forever. I don't know if its coming across that I like this beer but just in case, it's really an incredible drinking experience.

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 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.

Love this beer. Dank sticky hoppy goodness. Every TH beer seems to be better than the last. Great citrus/tropical base and favors. Worth the drive to Monson.

Poured from a can less then a week old into a tulip, thanks to @cannabanoid for the hookup:

Appearance: Orangy-yellow and hazy as can be, with a puffy white head. Leaves tons of spotty lacing on the glass, along with tons of lingering retention on the head.

Aroma: loads of citrus, with a slight edge in bitterness over Julius. I get a lot of ripe peach here too.

Taste: Begins with some soft peach and mango flavors, and subsequently evolves into pineapple and some citrusy flavors. Finishes with medium bitterness, and leaves a really long-lasting smoothie type flavor on the tongue. So so good.

Feel: Medium body, with a creamy and smooth feel. Not very sticky, but leaves plenty of flavor on the palate.

Overall: an excellent, delicious IPA. I'd drink it again and again. And again. Another fantastic brew from Treehouse.

The aroma is fruity but surprisingly muted. Bursting with flavor, but not as much as Julius. Perfectly balanced mouthfeel and carbonation levels. Overall, incredible IPA!

16 oz can. Pours turbid orange with two finger fluffy white head, fades slowly with tons of lace. Tropical fruity aroma. Taste is full of tropical fruit and hint of grass at the end. Pineapple and orange dominate, some peach. Wow this is tasty. Citrus peel and grassy bitterness just at the right level. Nice dry finish. Very soft full mouthfeel. Top notch IPA!

Can shared by Curran today.

This one pours a turbid, chunky looking vivid orange, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like orange juice, peach, melon, grapefruit, and some fresh cut grass.

This is a super intense, hop-forward beer. It feels like I'm drinking straight hops, right off the vine. It's got a fairly thick taste to it, almost feels like hop particulates are still in the beer. Huge amounts of orange, pineapple, melon, and grapefruit, with super bitter pine and freshly mowed grass. No malt character at all. I love Galaxy hops.

This is fairly thick bodied for an IPA, super turbid mouthfeel, with a lower level of carbonation.

This beer is definitely super green. It's also super tasty, and one of the best IPA's I've ever had.

Can dated 10/14/2015.

L - Pour reveals a muddy, burnt orange appearance with moderate head and lacing.

S - Smells strongly of citrus fruit. Grapefruit specifically. Nice.

T- Taste follows the nose. Big time grapefruit. Bitter. Really bitter. Reminds me a lot of a west coast IIPA. If you like hops, these will melt your face. Not overly balanced which is my one complaint. Alcohol is present too.

F- A sipper due to the hops and alcohol, which even at only 7.6%, is present.

O - A good IIPA. If you're a hop head, you'll probably very much enjoy. For me, it's a bit one dimensional.
