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.

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)

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)

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)

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)

If you like a bitter IPA this beer has all of that plus more. It has a hoppy flavor that explodes in your mouth with each sip. You will love the citrus bite you get. It is a great IPA. (184 characters)

A - hazy, orange opaque body, 1 finger sticky head
S - danky tropical hops; reminds me a bit of a refined Deviant Dales.
T - similar to the smell; nice hop bite
M - great mouthfeel; hop bite; carbonation; smooth

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)

Pours cloudy bright orange with a one finger head. Smells of delicious citrus and juice with some pine. Taste is orange fruity and bitter. Very crisp. Finish is dry and peppery. This is really an exceptional IPA. Easy to drink, and wonderful color, smell, and flavor. The only thing working against it is the fact that Julius will also almost certainly be available at the same time. But this beer is so good that it deserves to be sought after on its own. (464 characters)

Pours a straw like color. This beers smell is hop on top of hop on top of hop!! HUGE hop nose. Taste starts off as a hop bomb, then tropic fruit notes, mostly pineapple, then finishes off with a nice lingering bitter taste. I love this beer. Gives Julius a run for its money! (276 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)

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)

Opaque orangish tropical fruit looking. Wonderful citrus nose. Taste of tropical fruits like papaya and pineapple which moves into a bitter finish a the end. Smooth mouth feel. Another good Tree House offering (209 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)

16oz can from Steve000 (thanks man). No canning info. Served in a goblet.

Pours a deep, opaque orange amber with almost two fingers of white froth on top. The head gradually fades to a surface haze and a thick ring around the edge that leaves copious lace. It's a hazy mess with glorious lace.

Aromas are incredibly juicy. Orange juice, peach, pineapple and an almost honey-like sweetness.

Flavors are danker than the nose forecasted. Over ripe orange, peach purée, faint garlic, hints of pine, mild bready malt and traces of alcohol. This is a smooth, easy drinking IPA with a great blend of hop flavors.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitter notes in the finish with a good bit of citrus pulp and slightly tropical with some dank hops creeping in.

Green is the second tasty IPA offering I've had from Tree House and it seems to be a style they do well. This comes from the school of IPAs that understands flavor is more important than appearance. Green is some good stuff that I'd happily drink again. (1,027 characters)

From a can dated August 13, 2015. This one is so good - one of my favorites from Tree House. So juicy, with an incredible hop profile. This may be better than Julius. (166 characters)

I enjoyed this more than Julius. Has every quality an IPA should have as far as looks, nose, flavor, and feel are concerned. Gorgeous head. Super sticky, resiny, and piney. Thick with hop oils. A massively hopped, well-crafted beer that just hits the spot more than Julius (both in cans and growler). (300 characters)

16oz can. Served in a stemmed glass.

Hazy, cloudy yellow body with an orange hue, two finger white head, lots of lacing, good retention. Smells of tropical fruit, spices, oranges, a bit of grapefruit. Mild resin, nice mellow caramel. Flavour is moderately juicy tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, even a bit of pine, pale malt caramel sweetness, moderately bitter grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft, good carbonation, easy to drink, bitter but pleasantly so. Overall, a very good IPA from Treehouse that is one of their better beers overall. (553 characters)

Another citrus bomb in a can, but not to the extent of "Julius". Melons, tangerine, grapefruit and oranges can be detected both in aroma and taste. Crisp, earthy mouthfeel, but wished there was more of a hoppy kick to it. (221 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)

Oily and uber-smooth... rich with hops, muted citrus flavors, and a nice bitter finish... somewhere between the piney flavors of SAP and the citrus notes of Julius... another incredibly crushable ale from TH!! (209 characters)

Wasn't impressed with this beer, which is shocking bc I love every other beer I had from tree house (sap, JULIUS, c14, c15, lights on). Also heard so much about it and justt was disapponted. Thought It was thin on flavor and bite and a lil more of a watery taste at the end (273 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)
