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.

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).

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.

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. Very soft, pillowy body with no bitterness.

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.

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!!

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

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..

I picked this up at the brewery in a 2L growler
A: Hazy, light orange in color with a thin, white head.
S: Strong notes of melon, papaya, citrus, earthy spiciness and some malty candied fruit sweetness.
T: Similar to nose with a strong taste of melons.
M: Extremely balanced with a mild hop kick combined with malty sweetness. Almost no bitterness or dryness.
O: My favorite beer yet!! I loved this!! It was very much like Julius except instead of using orange it was switched with melons. A++

16oz can (thanks Darwin!!) poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass

A - Pours completely opaque. Almost looks like blended fruit juice in a glass. Incredible.

S - The best nose on a beer I've ever smelled. Explosive juiciness, grapefruit, oranges, there is an awesome herbaceous note (think fresh cut basil). Bubble gum is there (think Fruit Stripe from the 80s) too. Awesome.

T - Mind blowing. The creamiest IPA I've ever had. The mouth feel is ridiculous. I've never had a beer like this. Crazy citrus, passion fruit. Intense. Oranges, grapefruit peel, orange pith, pineapple. Awesome bitterness middle of the mouth, but that sweet fruit juice comes back on the back end to make it stupid balanced. Dry finish.

O - This is hands down the best IPA I have ever had. For me, it doesn't get better. I need more Tree House beers. This beer blew my mind.

Thanks to my friend Ian for bringing this with him to NJ. 16 oz can split between him and I. We had the Sap right before this and we've moved on to the Green. Amber in color and so cloudy that you can't see your fingers on the other side. Aroma is awesome, the kind that keeps you going back to smell the beer more often than you actually drink it. Tons of pineapple, orange citrus, and tropical fruits. Medium bodied despite the somewhat strong ABV. So smooth, juicy, and delicious. A stellar IPA from Tree House!

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Tree House tulip glass. Purchased at the brewery 2 days ago.

Pours a raw, super unfiltered hazy honey colored body with a 1 finger white head that reduces to a ring of foam, leaving spotty lacing.

Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, fresh hops, juicy fruit, pineapple, some butter in the background.

On the tongue it's slightly sweet upfront, citrus and pine on the follow through, with a super fresh hoppy zing on the finish, kind of piney/resinous. Not very bitter on the aftertaste, super smooth with medium body and carbonation.

Very good IPA, drinking it fresh was amazing, it's very raw, fresh, and hoppy.

In talking to many of the Tree House faithful, Green gets mentioned in the "favorite beer" conversation quite often, edging out even Julius on multiple occasions.

My experience, however, spanning three batches over 2015, points to a different beer, one that lands in the "good" but not quite "great" category, with something missing in the ingredients to elevate it to an elite beer status.

The good news is that Green has become my beer to share with others.

Aroma - A tropical island of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, and a little marijuana for island authenticity.
Appearance - Looks like freshly poured juice, hazy golden yellow color with dense white foam.
Flavor - Border-line fruit beer. Love the juicy tropical fruits in here--maybe some guava as well? A bit of a green onion hoppiness, but only as it warms up.
Mouthfeel - As thick as a lighter stout. Super creamy and no prickly carbonation.
Overall - West coast IPA bomb of fruit flavors. Drink this with an umbrella.

this is by far my favorite Tree House offering. It's a near perfect DIPA. Big and Juicy. Full mouth feel. I would pick this as a desert island beer for sure

Cloudy, burnt-orange color with 1/2 inch foam that sticks to the glass leaving a thin layer that never lets you see through it
Smells like sweet flowers, mango, oranges, hint of piney resin
Tastes super strong mango, resin with a slight dank bitterness on the finish
Creamy mouthfeel, lots of hop resin
Overall, excellent job Tree House!

From the can, finally!

Pours yellow and hazy, 1 finger of fluffy white head.
The smell is packed with tropical fruits and a very light cracker-like breadiness.
Taste follows much the same, citrus fruits and succulent sweetness balanced beautifully by a strong hop bite. There is some of the onion-like flavor you find from Simcoe, I think, but it mellows nicely over time.
Medium mouthfeel, exactly as one would expect. Nearly sour residues coat your tongue on the back end and makes you enjoy the time in between sips almost as much as drinking it!
Overall, a juicy, delicious IPA, another huge win for Tree House

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

Appearance: pours a light honey to straw yellow color. a 2-3 finger white foamy head with strong retention and leaving behind a strong lacing. super hazy and murky. completely opaque.

Smell: very juicy hop aroma. lots of citrus ranging from tangerine to orange and grapefruit. tropical fruits including papaya, mango and cantaloupe. light malts, may some lemon bread or biscuit like sweetness.

Taste: opens with huge tropical fruit taste. melon and cantaloupe, mango and papaya. citrus fruits come in next with orange, a small amount of grapefruit and some lime. malts are very subdued. possibly some lemon bread, some light biscuity sweetness. finishes with just a little bit of hop resin.

Mouthfeel: nice light and refreshing. a little bit of dryness. bitterness is initially moderate to strong but a small amount of sweetness comes through towards the end. slight lingering bitter.

Overall: this one is a super juicy hazy and tasty ipa. just the way I like them. great hop flavor without being overly bitter.

Second or third time around with this one thanks to generous friends sharing it in the past. Filled 9 days ago and kept in a very cold fridge since.

A- 750ml swing-top opens with a small pop and in TH style it is filled to the absolute brim. A murky golden apricot bodied ale pours to my tulip promoting a one finger creamy white cap. Good head retention and tons of lace in the form of sheets.

S- Fruit nectar aromas blast out of the glass with citrus and tropical varietals leading the way to some stone fruits. Juicy tangerines, melons, mangoes, grapefruits, cantaloupes and oranges come to mind. More juice in the citrus elements rather than zest. Malts and yeast reside but are hardly worth mentioning, light and clean.

T- Some shifting in the hop character overall but most of the same key players from the aroma carry over here beautifully. The bitterness accentuates some pine and herbal tones but the main show is still the citrus, which now has a bit of zesty pith to it, and tropical fruits. Orange juice, grapefruits, papaya, mango, apricot, slight passion fruit, dank mint and ripe cantaloupes and melons.

MF- Light-medium bodied, closer to the latter with a creamy and silky smooth consistency on the palate. Carbonation on the high side adding a bite that promotes the fresh, clean hops. Finishes with a moderate bitterness.

No particular reason in saying it here but perhaps the high quality, bold flavors of this beer did something to my subconscious: I have probably reviewed hundreds of IPAs now but I never get sick of it. Particular things I love about this one is the mixture of a fairly aggressive bitterness with smooth, juicy fruit nectar flavors. It brings the citrus bitterness along for the ride with the fruit pulp. Tree House is world class once again.

Growler was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy yellow orange color with no vision of anything

Smell: Juicy hop aroma. Tropical, citrus, lemon, herbal, pungent, grassy, and floral hops followed by caramel, toasted, and bready malts.

Taste: As good as it smells. Balanced and mild bitterness in the rear. Really juicy and delicious hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and mild tingly bitterness.

Overall: Nice juicy hop bomb. Might not look to pleasing due to bring somewhat hazy, but don't be misled by the view. Tasty and delicious.

One of my favorites, poured from can
L - thick creamsicle orange with white head and lacing
S - pine and citrus, orange - as one other reviewer noted a hint of onion, but not offensive
T - delicious citrus and fruit flavors come through with some of the onion, only slightly bitter on finish
F - medium body, well carbonated - while the body is very good, the appearance makes me want this beer to have a creamier texture - I'll live
O - great beer with a lot going on

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB glass pours with a 1/2" off-white head, over the cloudy burnished gold brew. Head deflates slowly, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is citrus and pine.

Taste starts sweet, promptly overpowered by citrus and pine, which power through the close, with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is super soft and smooth, and drinkability is easy. Another nice one.

I like this beer better than Julius and it's not close (and I like Julius).

Love the murky look (I know others knock that).

The aroma is off the hook. Pure pineapple. Some slightly sweet malty breadiness behind it.

Flavor follows suit with pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and a touch of onion on the extreme finish. The taste of onion or chive does become more prominent as you finish it but it's not a deterent.

Mouthfeel is silky smooth.

Just fantastic. Might be my favorite IPA right now.

Pours a gorgeous hazy orange color, good lacing on the glass. Smell is earthy, dank and juicy. Bursts with juicy flavor, dank hops come through perfectly. Smooth mouthfeel. Amazing every time I'm able to get this one
