In just a few short years, Tree House has made made a big impact on the beer scene with their approach to the IPA – low bitterness, intense juicy hop flavor and unfiltered haze.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A bit late to the party with this one as it's six weeks old. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thick head of white foam that lingers. The aroma is orange and lemon with a Fruit Loop type of feel. The taste is the same with some pine bitterness as well. The feel is smooth and overall a very nice beer. I'd love to have the opportunity to sample some Tree House beers without the addition of the "west coast". For what it's worth I'd buy this beer in a six or twelve pack on it's own.

4.23/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Hazy gold with two fingers of white fluffy head that lasts about ten minutes and leaves rings of lace as it drops.
Smell is fruity dank with light hop oil resins.
Taste is fruity dank hop oil orange zest and a touch of melon.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry with a bitter sweet end.
Overall a tasty beer for those who appreciate a lot of hop flavors without being covered up by the hop bitterness level. From a pint can that is about five weeks from canning date.

4.14/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Can dated 042817 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours slightly hazy bronze with 3 fingers of medium density white head with moderate retention and left mixed lacing.

S: I got a lot of mango and passion fruit initially, other stone fruit in tow, and some citrus undertones. Nose was enjoyable but a bit mute.

T: Definitely a nice hybrid, has some tropical juiciness but balanced by citrus and some earthiness that wasn't noticable on the nose. White grapes started to show up as it warmed. Finishes with some bitterness a little bit of astringency and both clear the palate quickly.

F: Lighter bodied and carbonation, felt slick on the tongue with a just a hint of tingling (likely from the astringency).

O: A solid E-W hybrid, which I'm really digging these days. Not that I don't enjoy both traditional West Coast or NE-style on their own, but I really like when the good attributes of both styles can come together and complement each other.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter. moderately hazy golden-amber color with a large white fluffy head.
Aroma: tropical fruit, berries, pine, resin. Fairly bright and noticeable once the can was opened.
Taste: Dank and herbal background from start to finish with berries, mango, and peaches in the mix. The bitterness was on the West Coast side.
Feel: soft and velvety. A clean finish.
Overall: a fun and interesting brew. I appreciate the hybrid nature but honestly prefer one of the other with a more crisp feel with this degree of bitterness.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours golden and not too hazy with a fat sumptuous head of white creamy foam that lasts well. Nose is like orange juice at first then it begins to become a bit more herbal than orangey. Plenty of herbal hop and it's that hop that authenticates the orange in the IPA. This one is all citrus! Drinks creamy smooth but with lots more bitterness than I expected. Slick. Grapefruit is headdy and pungent. Catty hop. Tries to be juicy but it's too sharply bitter. There is a little alcohol on the palate.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16 oz can into a clear glass tulip. Pkgd 042817.

A: Slightly hazy golden amber with 1-2 finger frothy head which leaves patchy lacing.

S: Heavy peach, melon, passionfruit with dash of black pepper in the end

T: Similar to aroma with floral peach and melon with tropical fruit notes and a stronger pepper note in the finish.

M: None of the signature NEIPA softness, really a bracing bitterness with light-medium body and carbonation.

O: A decent IPA seems to favor West over East to my palate.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours bright golden amber with plenty of little unfiltered floaties and a big foamy white head that lasts then laces very well. Smells mildly of lemon, light melon, and a touch of pine. Flavor is very muted, again finding myself searching for just touches of melon and citrus. Feel is light and crisp, balanced with good carbonation. Overall, this was an ok IPA, but not was I was expecting at all. Cheers!

Gold in color with a fingernail of off white densely packed head. There's a light to moderate haziness in the body that is very deliberate. The nose is faint pine and tangerine. I'm tasting more citrus with just a trace of light malt to keep things in balance. There's a nice deep citrus hop burn on the tongue. The mouth is otherwise lightly sticky and resinous.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz. can into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Color is a somewhat hazy amber orange. Lots of rising bubbles and a big two finger white head that settles into a thinner creamy layer.

Smell: A pretty juicy and piney hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus fruit and resin. Upfront citrus hop scent of orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, and mango with some pineapple. Earthy hop scent of pine resin and grass. Light malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with some yeast. A pretty good juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and piney hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Big upfront juicy taste of citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, tangerine, and lemon along with pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and some grass. Some light malt notes of caramel, grains, and cracker along with yeast. A very good juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and drying with moderate bitterness.

Overall: A very good IPA. Doesn't have the haze and overwhelming juicyness of a NE IPA but there is plenty of citrus hop flavor.
