Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Monson, MA
01 26 16
Served in a pint glass

Totally opaque, orangey-amber appearance. The body looked exactly like orange juice. With an aggressive pour, a creamy, frothy, off-white, one-finger tall head topped the liquid. A bit smaller than I anticipated. The crown fell rather quickly to a clingy film. Streaky, splotchy lacing trickled down the glass.

The aroma was insanely hoppy and fragrant. Initially, the beer smelled like pure guava juice. Super fruity and bright. Later, a mix of overripe tropical fruits came through strong. Mango was noticeable. Really dank and weed-like. This reminded me a lot of fresh bud. As the head died down, the aroma became a bit more subtle. Peach notes however came forth. All in all, intensely juicy and sweet.

The flavor profile was mesmerizing. Perfect mix of citrus and tropical fruits. Loads of sweetened white grapefruit and overripe mango. Big zesty orange and tangerine presence. Peach notes also came through strong. Candied grapefruit peel appeared in the finish. Bit of pineyness. Amazingly well balanced. Dank, herbal, weed-like notes also came through big time. I definitely did not find this beer to be as resiny or as bitter as others have noted.

As impressive as the aroma and flavor profile were, the mouthfeel was even better. Insanely soft. Super creamy, smooth and supple on the palate. The liquid contained a fine, frothy, moderate effervescence that made the liquid feel like a pillow. Simply put, flawless.

I have absolutely loved every beer that Tree House has released to date, but Green might just be my favorite overall. This is a ridiculously flavorful and well crafted Northeast-style juice bomb that contains just enough bitterness to be insanely crushable. Proof once again that Tree House Brewing crafts the best hoppy beers on planet earth.

Super solid IPA, drank it right after a Julius and I think that hurts the review. More dank than citrus, and I prefer my ipas juicy. Treehouse does not disappoint

Big fan of everything Tree House

While I appreciate that Green is different from Julius, Haze, Alter Ego. I feel that all 3 are superior to Green.

That being said, Green is a very good-great beer.

Look- little lighter than the Julius orange. Not quite straw.
Smell- Dank, musty hops
Taste- like earlier state, Very good to great
Feel- Little less creamy than Julius, but still very well done
Overall- My 6th fav TH IPA (Behind Julius, KJ, Alter Ego, Doppel and Haze)

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Canned three days prior to tasting.

Hazy and murky apricot colored with a white head that rises up minimally and settles out quickly, leaving lots of legs and lace.

Aroma of citrus and scallion, some tangerine and grapefruit.

Flavors of hops burst out, matching the nose well. Lots of citrus, some scallion, grapefruit and subtle mango, but also solventy, some alcohol vapors mix in. Not overly bitter. A honey malt balance rides beneath.

Full mouthfeel, but a bit slick, finishes tingly. Very good beer, but not sure I'd drive two hours round trip and wait in line another hour.

Pours a hazy orange with white head. Some light aroma of orange, citrus rind, and may be a little papaya. It's not as aromatic as I expected it to be. Flavor is wonderful. Little to no bitterness. It has that Treehouse papaya-y malt base, but fortunately, the Australian hops provide a nice contrast. I really like the mouthfeel. It is chewy, gummy. I think it plays better in this beer than a Julius, if I am picking up a similar malt bill/flavor.

Appearance: An impressive bubble show creates a meringue-like head layered on top of the cloudy honey colored liquid; excellent retention with plenty of lacing to boot

Smell: Smells like a combination of all the tropical fruit juices to be found in Little Havana at El Palacio De Los Jugos; floral, aromatic and juicy

Taste: Tropical juice flavors forward, with mango, papaya, guava, pineapple, lime and orange; stone fruit flavors of cantaloup and peach, as well; the malts are hidden underneath but there is a touch of citrusy bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; slightly creamy

Overall: Hits all the buttons for me; wish more IPAs were like this one as the quest would be over

My Favorite beer.
Nothing here is out of line.
Beautiful golden orange in the glass. Dark, glowing, cloudy.
Nose and flavor are too exciting for words. Juicy, fruity, frothy deliciousness to the last drop. Thick and creamy.

I want this beer every day of the week. If it were readily available, I wouldn't need to ever drink anything else.

Green is perfection.

This is exactly what I was hoping for. Super juicy beer packed with aromas of orange sherbet, tropical fruit juice and dankness.

Pineapple, citrus fruit, and dankity dank dank flavors on the palate.

Tree House, you know what you're doing here.

Recently tasted a few BA Scored 100 IPA's after a couple trades and this is the winner for me of the bunch. The look of this beer is not that great, kind of a murky brownish/orange-ish liquid with a nice white head that leaves a ton of lacing. The smell is very good for an IPA. Nothing outstanding but you can tell from the nose you are about to drink an IPA. The flavor is outstanding! great orange sherbet, pineapple, orange juice bomb with a slight bitterness. the mouthfeel is very good as the beer is a little light on carbonation. Definitely feel that light carb adds to the flavor profile.

16oz can dated 1/5/16 poured into Teku glass on 1/14/16.

Look: Pours identical to orange juice. One finger of small, tight white-yelllow bubbles with sparse larger bubbles towards the center of the glass. Excellent head retention and lacing. Uncanny ability to rouse a thick, luscious head with agitation no matter how long it's been sitting in the glass. Seriously. Give it a try.

Smell: Pine, papaya, mango, guava, citrus.

Taste: Citrus initially. Tangerine, orange, clementine. Distinctly un-grapefruit-like, which is a nice change from what seems to be a growing trend amongst other similar offerings. Followed strongly by pine which lingers between sips.

Feel: Moderate-low carbonation. Surprisingly thick and creamy mouthfeel initially, but finishes dry and crisp.

Overall: Another fantastic offering from Tree House. Drinkability is fantastic, 7.5% is hidden well. Enjoyed thoroughly the balance of pine vs. fruit.

Pours a super hazy opaque orange yellow. Smell is super juicy hops with a powerful mixture of citrus fruit, and a touch of melon. Mouthfeel is impressively full while drinking juicy and smooth.

Taste is pure hop art. Lots of punch from the hops with many layers of flavors. Super citrus bitterness...however it's accompanied with a juicy melon flavor. The intense hop flavor lingers on the tounge.

One of the best beers I've ever had and my favorite I've had thus far from treehouse. It's truly a wonderfull IPA and a true experience of a beer.

Absolutely incredible beer. I've only had Haze and Green from TH, but I have to say that this is one of the best beers I've ever had. Certainly the best IPA.

L: Hazy, but bright with color. Medium head with good lacing and white in color.
S: Fresh squeezed orange juice, quava, mango, ecstacy. I want to smell it as much as I want to drink it.
T: Delicious, fruity, sharp, a hint of spice. Unlike any other beer I've had before.
F: Strong body that stands up to the exotic aroma and flavors.
O: Possibly my favorite beer to date. Anxious to get my hands on more from TH.

Canned on 12-1-15 and poured into my Goose Island nonic pint.

A- Pours just like the other Tree House beers I have had so far, extremely hazy and almost looking like juice in the glass. A sizeable, 3-4 finger head forms and retains for days with amazing lacing. It quite literally looks like a glass of poured, carbonated orange juice in my glass.

S- Even in the can just over a month, the big, juicy, citrus hops still hit the nose with a vengeance. Fairly prominent are orange and other citrus notes, as well as the tangerine mentioned on the can. The back end of the scent is a tad bit more piney than the front end, but the citrus and bright tones still outweigh the pine and cedar notes.

T- The first flavor to hit the tongue is a melange of citrus fruit and moderate bitterness from the hops. Right after the initial hop bite, the citrus fruit flavor profile kicks in a little stronger and displays a light orange and tangerine flavor to accompany a mild bitterness. The back end of the drink is much more resinous and pine-forward in its bitterness. These same, late-drink flavors are the lingering notes on the tongue.

M- Just as the look follows the trend of other Tree House beers, the feel is much the same as well. The body is a tad thin, but not terribly so, and the carbonation level is slightly on the low end of the spectrum for an IPA. It drinks incredibly smooth and is very easy going down.

Overall, this is my second favorite Tree House can to Julius. The addition of the slightly more bitter and piney Galaxy hop is a good addition that brings a little more traditional IPA bitterness to the drink. In the end, another solid Massachusetts offering.

Poured from a 16oz can.

L: This IPA pours a bright, cloudy-cannot see through this beer, orange juice w/one finger of white head the dissipates moderately.

S: Nose is definitely unique with tangerine, mango, oranges, citrus fruits.

T: Fantastic; tangerine, mango, grapefruit, malty sweetness comes through with a nice tart finish. Extremely well balanced.

F: Smooth, good carbonation.

O: This is a great IPA. Very unique, delicious beer. Extremely well balanced a highly drinkable. Love this beer!

Had the 12/22/15 batches of Julius, Haze, Green this Xmas break. WOW! Julius edged both a bit. Haze and Green on the same level IMO. Thick and juicy. Great head. Balanced. Amazing beer!

Poured a cloudy golden color, not much to look at but who cares. Its just so damn tasty. Tree House makes some stellar brews and this is right up there with their best. Nice aroma and fruity - juicy flavor. Super smooth and easy to drink. I could slam these all day if they were easier to get. Fantastic beer. Cheers

Absolutely excellent, the delicate dankness with this one gives it another dimension that some of the other TH beers could use.

Picked up a growler of this from the brewery. Fantastic beer. I could drink it all day long. In fact - I did! Awesome hop profile: lots of piney, dank, fresh flavors. Tree House has really been killing it lately and this is no exception.

Pours a completely clouded grapefruit juice color with a big, spongy head. Actually, this beer looks pretty neat in its own, headstrong, dirty way.

On the nose, a blend of resin and prickly lemon pulp creates the foundation of the aromas in this. An oat sweetness, together with a bready malt appeal provides a subtle, but well integrated balance, maintaining the focus almost entirely on the hops. Fruity lemon zest settles on top of this, blending into sweeter, not yet ripe, exotic fruits.

While not being too vivid on the carbonation, the mouthfeel completely soothes out any possible harshness from the profound hops, establishing an astonishing softness on the tongue, which tends to turn almost creamy during the finish.

Tastes of a soft aqueous quality up front, already establishing the beers gorgeous mouthfeel, with juicy lime cutting through in a very refreshing, playful way, allowing the flavor foundation to unfold its silkiness peaceable. Citrus blends into fruity, sweet sorbet, somewhere between woodruff jello, ripe orange and fresh cut grass in a cloudburst. Finishes with its already mentioned, yet defining, soft mouthfeel, mellowing all other flavors of the beer down to a minimum, only to invite a water melon accompanied hop dryness to the tongue, which lasts for decades.

Doubtlessly this beer is green. That is due to its unique sorbet-like middle part, as for its initial lime dryness and late grass dankness. These three flavors create a highly enjoyable synergy, guided by the world class mouthfeel in this, opening up the term softness to a whole new level. The more the beer warms up, the more obvious becomes its uncompromising hop onslaught, getting balanced by the beers smoothness instead of creating a malty backbone, preventing a hindering, hop decreasing sweetness.

Probably the ugliest IPA I have seen in a while. Murky orangish, greenish, brown with a dense white head. Aroma is intense hop presence of tangerines, lemons, and pale malts. Really impressive smell. Flavor starts of as strait fruit juice come at you in waves of orange rind, grapefruit, and some dank, grassy flavors. The finish though is somewhat off for me. Some astringency is there or possibly even some burnt notes that comes in about 10 sec after each sip. Body is creamy for the style, but I can dig it.
Overall, I wanted to love it, but ended up really liking it. Really appreciate the uniqueness of this one though.

16oz can, from the brewery.

Pours a super hazed-out orange beige hue, nice looking head and lacing. Smells of clementines, stone fruit, honey dew, & pineapple skin. Pungent hop flavor, ample bitterness. Ripe kiwi, fresh cut grass, orange rind, faint green peppercorn, & subtle pine on the palate. Not sure if you can pack anymore hop flavor into this beer. Love the pushing of the boundaries here, glad to see that the brewer's intention gives us a reason of why it looks the way it does. Cheers to that. Instant hop fix, drinkable for only the hardest of hopheads. A lot of fun knocking this one back, kiss of alcohol in the finish helps keep the hops in check a bit.

After having tried Alter Ego I decided to give this a shot. Price was high but not much different from other stuff brought down to NY from VT. Perhaps my palate was already weary by thw time I tried it, but I didnt get all the notes everyone seems to be talking about. Def above average beer, but 100, not to me it wasn't. I'd give it a 90.

What can I say. This beer is the real deal. I am fortunate enough to have had the best east coast IPAs ( Heady, Focal, Sunshine, Session 2, G Bot, Lunch) and this is my absolute favorite. It was fairly easy to get as well. I drove to the brewery this evening, they where open 12 to 6 for cans only. I arrived at 5:15 and had a line of about 15 or so. Very well organized, moved quickly. 8 can limit on Julius and Green, so I grabbed the max. $60 for 16 is a steal for this quality. Color is freaky awesome orange haze, nice thick white head. Smell is super pineapple and citrus smell. Taste is even more intense if pineapple and citrus. Nice sweet malty taste, a thick and rich finish. Each taste gets better. Thank you Tree House! Amazing beer. You have another loyal customer!

This is really TH meets west coast style IPA. The nose was way piney and resinous. Super Dank, super hoppy, pretty bitter and creamy mouth feel. I'm slightly biased because I'm not the biggest fan of the bitter finishing IPAs but a very good beer.
