Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

S: Apricots. Peaches. Mango. Pineapple. Grapefruit. Orange juice. Grass. Earthy spice.
T: Sweet oranges. Grapefruit. Peach. Apricots. Papaya. Pine. Spice. Bready malt. Earthy.
M: Similar mouthfeel and purée-ish body as seen with Green, but with a lot more gusto. Sticky. Tongue-tickling carbonation. Slight booze burn.
O: An outstanding brew by its merits, but my weak little Asian stomach can't seem to stomach the magnitude of this brew. I'll perhaps one day (if there ever comes a day when I have the chance to drink this more frequently) grow into this super thick super juicy super saturated haze fad, but as for now this is just too much for me to handle.

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

Appearance - Pours cloudy pulpy orange color, looks like a glass of orange juice. Nice white head great lacing.

Smell - Mango, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple and peach. The hops are coming through nicely as well.

Taste - Very juicy topical IPA sweet and very nice hop flavor. The best way I can describe this is someone added fresh hops to freshly squeezed juice. Amazing flavors and very well balanced. Plenty of orange and pineapple as well as mango papaya and grapefruit. This is dangerously drinkable and no sign of the 8.2% ABV.

Feel - Medium body very smooth. Although it is medium body it still has very full and creamy feel.

Overall - This is an amazing brew, it hits all the notes from the tropical smell and taste to the well balanced hoppiness and smooth feel.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Split a growler, it pours cloudy yellow gold color that has the classic New England IPA looks. Head was foamy, off white and about 1 finger thick, fading slowly and leaving minimal spotty lacing.

Smells of fresh citrus hops, pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, mango, dank piney hops, luscious tropical fruit, graham cracker, biscuit, toasted grains and a general lovely fruity sweetness. All hops but just enough malt backbone to make it almost perfectly balanced.

Tastes pretty much like it smells but with added citrus fruit like papaya, star fruit, grapes and pear. Bitterness is mild and the ABV is completely hidden, making this incredibly easy to drink. Simply delicious.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

L: Very orange in color with a white frothy head that stays around for a while.
S: Orange with a little peach and other citrus.
T: Similar to the nose, though not quite as juicy as the smell and a little less sweetness than some of the other TH beers. You can't really taste the bitterness, and this hides an 8% ABV better than any beer I've ever had this strong. Delicious.
F: Some carbonation, not as hefty as some other NE IPAs. But nice.
O: Great beer, up there with all their others. The slight decrease in sweetness was actually a positive for my palate the night I drank it.

Overall Excellent beer. A bit more malty than other treehouse IPAs. Tropical smell and flavors. Light carbonation and slight fading bitterness. I'd get this one again.

Bought a 750 ML growler on Thursday 9/29. Appearance includes a very murky yellow orange with a thick, bubbly head with thick lacing on the sides. Aromas are very apparent with grapefruit, tangerine, and orangepeel smells. Taste follows the nose with an incredibly fruity (citrus mostly) flavor, including a sharp orange aftertaste. The mouthfeel really helps to bring out the flavors by making this beer have a medium carbonation while being very refreshing. Overall, this was a fantastic beer, especially with its aromas.

Hazy (to be expected). Taste is super-mango, super fruity, with a bitter, wet finish. I can taste the alcohol very slightly. Flavor spreads nicely, good drinking beer.

Poured from growler 2 days after buying. Dark orange murky look. Big juicy notes of mango and melon/passionfruit. I found finish to be pretty bitter. Enjoyed this but little underwhelmed.

Very nice double IPA. Nice aroma out of the glass with the same hazy appearance as most every other Treehouse beer that I have had. Great fruit and tropical flavors on the palette as well.

My 1st Treehouse brew I was able to trade for. Canned 8/13/16 poured into Teku glass. Milkshake haze orange appearance brings an insane aroma of pineapple, mango orange when I popped open the can. Taste is mango, orange hoppy goodness with a very boozy finish I was not expecting (but enjoyed). Overall very crushable the alcohol burn on the finish is what pushed this to almost a 5 for me most juice bombs I have had are a little too sweet. Will definitely be seeking out a lot more TH in the future.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Canned date of 07/20/16

Appearance - Pours extremely hazy and orange in color with an off-white, frothy finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, consistent layer of suds across the surface. Fair lacing, most of which is made up of spotting found around the glass.

Smell - Plenty of juiciness on the nose, with orange, pineapple, lesser peach and a hint of spice.

Taste - Follows the nose. Juicy notes of orange and pineapple upfront, following shortly with lesser notes of peach and mango. A touch of hop spice and some stonefruit pit nuttiness mid-taste. The back end rings with fair grapefruit pith and some light, bready sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth drinker, though a touch of chalkiness (presumably from the yeast) in the texture.

Overall - One heck of a NE-style DIPA, and certainly one of the trendsetters of the style. If there's one knock, it may be a bit too yeasty, but I'm nitpicking. This is a damn tasty brew.

Pours a hazy (obviously) golden yellow color with a frothy bone white head. The smell hits your nose right as you open the can. Notes of mango, pineapple, guava, grapefruit, and orange. Also getting a slightly weedy aroma as well. Taste is majorly up front with pineapple, mango, and guava, with bitter grapefruit and orange zest coming through towards the end. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Carbonation is slightly low but helps with the overall mouthfeel. Overall, an amazing NE DIPA. It has that typical tropical taste and smooth feel you'd expect from breweries like Tree House, Trillium, and Monkish.

Big thanks to Kegatron for the growler share. Poured into a snifter appears a milky looking melted creamsicle orange color with a white head that holds well painting the glass with a curtain of lace.

Aroma is fruity orange/pineapple juice very hoppy and wonderful smelling. Slight grassiness and overall hop pellet feel with a touch of alcohol. As it breathes even more tropical hop scents emerge.

Taste is more of the same orange juice meets pineapple, mango, cantaloupe, honeydew with slight yeastiness and bitter lingering grassy pith/pulp.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. This has a creamy yeast filled feel that goes down easy. Despite tasting similar to just about every other hoppy thing ive had from tree house, this one brings a little brighter pop of fruity quality. Hell yea id drink it again if offered. This goes down crazy easy, never would have guessed it at 8%.

From the 16oz can, dated 09/07/16, served in an imperial pint/nonic.

Pours a profoundly turbid orange-grapefruit colour with a generous finger of lush, creamy head. Retention is just pretty good but leaves a rich, enduring skim of suds and thick sheets of lacing. From a classical standpoint, this beer is butt-ugly; to the aficionado of NEIIPA's, it is a beverage of surpassing beauty.

The nose is sugar cookies, peaches, pineapples, and sweaty sex in a weedy ditch.

Tastes of soft, juicy, fruity yeast. Dank herbal notes, fresh white bread, pineapple, grapefruit pith, orange zest and a melange of various fermented (read boozy) tropical fruits. Ends with grass clippings and a little pine tingle.

The feel is oily and medium-heavy, very juicy but well carbonated.

All (maybe just almost all?) of the Tree House PA's share that signature, instantly-identifiable peachy-bubblegum-yeasty-somethingness and Haze is no exception. The booze is quite prominent on this one, maybe a little too much so but, otherwise, it's just SO damn good that it's hard to ding it too much for that.

L: Cloudy, milky orange yellow. Coul d almost pass for mango juice. Two to three fingers of head. Left a thick lacing all the way down the glass.

S: Pineapple juice.

T: Follows nose with some mango, papaya, orange peel. Slighty bitter on the end. As it warms a pine bitterness finishes.

F: Sticky, moderate to high carbonation. Medium body.

O: Well done new england dipa. Alcohol is well hidden. Very juicy.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Opaque hazy orange with a white head.

Smell: Pungent fruit hops burst from the can. Notes of peach, pineapple, papaya, guava, and grapefruit dominate the nose. All hops.

Taste: Thick juicy hops buckle the tongue with notes of peach, pineapple, grapefruit pith, papaya, and guava. This slowly fades to a honey biscuit malt with a lingering bitter pine as it finishes.

Feel: Thick and juicy yet not abrasive. Light bitter on the finish and just a hint of alcohol on the finish. Very drinkable for the ABV.

Overall: One intense IIPA. Big, juicy, and tongue buckling. Yet drinks way below its actual ABV. The flavors develop over the course of the sip adding an unexpected complexity that just adds to the beauty of this beer. It's not just juice it has a notable malt and layers to the hops. World class stuff.

Wow. This beer starts off with and amazing pour, both in its coloration and it's beautiful head. Hazy, almost pastel orange colour. Appears practically radioactive. Screaming juicy and it doesn't disappoint. Strong blood orange aroma. Taste is well balanced. Oranges with a bit of peach. Not too sweet or acidic. Soft mouth feel with considerable body. A real thrill to drink this!

Can dated 07/20/16.
Pours hazy pale yellow. Closely resembles grapefruit juice with a one-inch off-white head that remains as a cap on top and leaves strands of lace on the drink down. The smell is of fresh squeezed citrus juicy with some faint tropical fruit accents. The taste follows with juicy grapefruit and a hint of pine bitterness. Full texture. World class.

16 oz. can. 3 days old

A- Cloudy orange juice looking with a fluffy white one finger head. Sticky lacing left after every sip.

S- Apricot, peach, mango, pineapple. Throw in all the tropical fruits you can think of. Slightly resinous.

T- Another fruit juice in beer form from Tree House. Mango, papaya, peach....you get the picture. Perfect amount of bitterness. Slight alcohol warming. Great stuff.

M- Medium to full and smooth. Perfect amount of carbonation. Silky.

O- Like all the Tree House IPA's I have tried, I love it. Recommended if you can get it.

From the 16 oz. can dated Aug 24, 2016. Sampled the same day on Aug 24, 2016.

The pour is a hazy looking yellow color under a modest white foamy head. Lingering head.

The aroma brings out orange, tangerine, peach, and citrus character mainly but there is still a worthwhile toasted bread and biscuit character worth mentioning. Zero booze for 8.2%.

Medium to full body but so smooth.

The peach jumps forward in the taste but is usurped by the other fruity character and toasted bread sweetness that hovers under it all. Mostly clean finish. Just delightful and worth waiting in line to grab one.

Look : Hazy, as the same says. Little bit dark but pretty similar compared to Julius.
Aroma : this aroma is fucking crazy. Pure peach bomb from yeast, then tropical fruits from hops.
Mouthfeel : medium-medium.
Flavor : this is my second dipa from TH so its hard to tell, but they are all "boozy" and I dont like that. Trillium perfectly hides the alcohol taste, but this has a sharp alcohol taste at the start, other tastes are great thi.
Overall : the booziness ruins everything, wish they make a regular version of this. Sad.

Another great beer from Treehouse. Similar to the Julius - very similar to me. Exotic flavors shine through - notes of fruit, mango, orange, rine - seems to be a staple with Treehouse. Tastes extremely similar to the Julius - smooth, refreshing, definite dankness to this one, hops shine through, but the fruit definitely is at the front of the flavors. The fruit blends in and is in balance with the malt backbone.. it all works - beautifully.

All in all a great beer - didn't change my life, but was an amazing offering from Treehouse. Can't wait to have more of these and continue trying some different beers from Treehouse.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Canned 8/3. Consumed 8/11.

A: Pours out a bright golden orange. Sits completely opaquely in the glass, a murky and turbid yet still vibrant heavily burnt orange.

S: Tons of orange. Spritzy OJ mixed with pithy, astringent orange pith. Tropical and stone fruit undertones—peach, passionfruit, mango. Bit of grassy dankness as well. Significant backing of sweet white-bready malt.

T: Sweet, delectable citrus juice up front. Orange with tons of lemon and lime throughout. Explodes off the tongue initially, but succumbs relatively quickly to a milder assortment of tropical fruits—papaya, peach, passionfruit. A very herbaceous bitter finish combats any noticeable sweetness from the malts, imparting a well-balanced and almost drying quality to the finish.

M: Rich and luscious, very reminiscent of the feel on Green. Bubblegum yeastiness hints at a milkshake-esque feel. A bit more bitter—though more floral than piney or astringent—on the finish, but a welcome bitterness in its balance of the sweet, doughy malt that sits further in the foreground on Haze than it does in other TH brews. If I was forced to find something I'd change about this beer, I'd tone down the bittering dryness on the finish and prolong the juicy feel that so pungently pops through most of the sip.

O: Up there with anything else I’ve tried from Tree House. Haze pops in both the flavor and aroma categories, packing a punch of orange juiciness that is pretty much unrivaled in its intensity. I’ve heard Haze aptly described as a fusion of some of the defining characteristics of Julius and Green, and I totally see this. It embodies an amped up version of Julius’ orange qualities while mirroring the mid-mouth doughy bubblegum flavor and herbaceous bitter finish of Green. It’s really hard to find anything wrong with this beer, and I’d gladly drink it over pretty much anything else I’ve ever had. Damn near perfect.
