BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We constructed this beer around hops we currently have plenty of access to, allowing us to re-brew it on a (relatively) consistent basis. We smell a ton of orange on the nose, with complimentary notes of peach and passionfruit. The flavor is similar with a blast of citrus fruit & orange quickly followed by spicy grapefruit, and earthy dankness. A lingering but pleasant hop oil finish awaits.

this one is cool because the hop complexion is a little more familiar and old school. its northwestern and spicy and vegetal and piney to me, intense, like a west coast ipa that just also happens to be multigrain and hazy. this one has become famous for them, and i can certainly see why, it should appeal to ipa drinkers of all persuasions, oily and bitter too to an extent that the others i have had from them recently are not. i like this being a little more classically styled in terms of hop flavors, it allows me to easily appreciate what the grain base does for the hops, which is to extend them well beyond just the finish, and to almost balance their intensity with texture not with flavor, which is amazing, this is super soft and round and bubbly and exciting, unique feel for hoppy beer, and these guys have it dialed. grapefruit and orange zest in the nose, fresh pine, resinous and almost concentrated, intense in a delicious way. its not overly complex, but thats part of what makes it, the simplicity is great. its clean and pure and fresh, and while i might not rank it among the best hoppy beer in the world like so many folks here on BA have, i sure enjoyed the can and hope to be able to drink a bit more of this in the future. lucky to have had a friend send me these cans, i really enjoyed all of the tree house ive had recently, and totally see what all the hype is about!

Unlike lots of DIPAs, Haze did not reek of alcohol nor taste as such. I experienced a delicate balance between 8.2abv and a surprisingly drinkable and dangerous blend of citrus, tropical aroma and welcomed hoppiness.

My first experience with this long-time whale! Canned on 5/16/2018 and poured into pint glass. It pours a hazy, dirty golden yellow color with a half finger of milk white head that dissipated slowly leaving a thin sheen of creamy lacing. The smell didn't pop as much as I anticipated but it nonetheless is fragrant with lemon, tangerine, vanilla, pine needles, and floral hops. The taste is everything I'd hoped for: a perfect balance of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, lactose, and a delicious blend of hops that's bitter without biting. This is as easy a drinking DIPA as you'll ever find. It's creamy with a near perfect level of carbonation. And it goes down so smooth I can't believe it's 8.2% Overall, Haze is simply exquisite. It richly deserves its World-Class rating.

Poured to an Ora et Labora taster.

A: Body is superb with opaque matte yellow coloration and a huge 2cm thick white dense head. You can't get any better than this.
S: Aroma is very interesting with an agressive hop profile in the beginning, acting more like a green-ish approach to the aroma. No citric tones.
T: Taste is so soft and amazing to a DIPA, you wouldn't expect to find this beer so soft on bitterness and sweetness. It's almost an umami like flavour centered in the middle of the beer. It's even a bit spicy towards the end.
M: Body is medium, carbonation is perfect, just a bit of alcohol noticed in the end towards a more green-ish bitterness.
O: Great and huge beer that is so drinkable for a DIPA that it falls under the non-imaginable.
