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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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
Overall - solid, really solid. Not sure if I'd wait in line for hours for it but a great brew to try for hop heads.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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

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

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.
