BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Juice Machine was originally devised and brewed to support our very first trip to Extreme Beer Festival in 2014. We’ve revived and tweaked the original recipe on a 60 BBL scale and brought new life and experience into the idea of an obscenely hop saturated yet juicy and delicate Double IPA. It is essentially a marriage of the King Julius malt bill with a hopping intensity schedule similar to that of Very Green. The use of Magnum, Columbus, Amarillo, Citra, and Galaxy creates a deeply complex drink with unapologetic flavors of tangerine, mango, lime, papaya, and grapefruit with waves of dankness. Hop burp nirvana, indeed.

Nice cloudy pale orange color, great citrus smell. It has a bitter dry taste but very smooth mouth feel. It would be very easy to drink a few and I was tempted to gulp it down It was a really nice beer IIPA taste but drinks like a session I think

Tried at EBF 2014, got literally the last cup of it from the keg, with some foam.

A: golden, hazy, beautiful color

S: Citrus, strong piney goodness, no perceivable alcohol smell, dank hops, floral notes.

T: Wow, this was a stunner. Few DIPAs stay this hop forward while still remaining balanced, straight juicy hops and perfect flavors coming through. pineapple, mango, definitely taste some orange flavors.

F: For 9.8% abv, this had a great mouthfeel, I waited for the carbonation to die down because I got foam, and let it settle, but it was still very carbed, my fault, not theirs.

O: I'd imagine a full glass of this would be a game-changer. I dare you to bring this back Tree House! An exceptional beer that will probably never be brewed again.

Seek this one out without caution.
