Notes: 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.

Tree House Brewing Co. "Haze"
16 fl. oz. can coded "BEER IS GOOD 05/03/22 06:26:37". Sampled on 05/16/22
$17.20/4-pk at the brewery on 05/12/22

Notes via stream of consciousness: A two finger thick head of off-white rests atop a murky golden body with an orange sheen. The aroma isn't as strong as I expected but it delivers some orange and passionfruit over a sweetish and grainy malt base. The flavor is bright and vibrant with a clear note of tangerine backed by passionfruit, nectarine, apricot, and mango. The malt is delicately sweetish, bready, and lightly oat-like. The bitterness is moderate and yet it finishes dry due at least in part to some hop acidity. In the mouth it's medium bodied but it feels a little fuller due to all of the extra proteins giving it a fluffy feel. It's smooth but that hop burn gives it a little bit of an edge. The head has held up really well and I've still got a creamy, but more importanty complete, surface covering. The lacing covers quite a bit and looks like a drawing of trees out of a book of scary stories. The aroma is better on their "Very Hazy", and I've scored it better overall, but for my money I prefer this easier drinking version.

Lovely golden orange body; cloudy; thick head, white and sculpted and long lasting. An interesting aroma; like a sage / cucumber mix; faint bit of citrus. The taste follows along the lines of the smell; stronger sense of cucumber rind bitterness; biscuit-like malt flavor. Heavy body; moderate acidity; somewhat juicy, somewhat dry on the palate.

All I can say is the smell and taste are weird. I don't recall tasting anything like this. If there is supposed to be a stronger citrus presence, it's missing in this sample. If anything, the hop profile seems like some weird combination of Motueka and Nelson Savin hops. Motueka has never thrilled me, but Nelson Savin can be very interesting. Still, there must be a reason it (currently) has a 100 score on BA, but I certainly don't understand it.

I have been drinking IPA's for at least ten years now and a friend gave me this after helping him with repair work around his house. I don't need to rate this with regards to taste, smell, mouth feel.... As soon as I took the first pull, I can tell you it was one of (if not the best) IPA's I've ever had. The combinations of fruit notes are extraordinary and once you give yourself a chance to absorb the flavors, you'll understand what I mean. Drink this Beer!!!

One month old. Can to wine glass.

Look: Pours a light hazy orange with a foamy white head leaving a good amount of lacing. No floaters visible.

Smell: Sweet orange and tangerine combined with tropical notes of papaya as well as some peach.

Taste: Orange, tangerine and grapefruit, also peach and papaya. Ripe, but not overripe. Medium sweetness, medium zestiness and a slightly bitter finish.

Feel: Very juicy. Generally smooth with nuanced sharp notes.

Overall: Beautifully balanced beer with a soft fruity body and some edges. While Very Hazy and Very Hhhazyyy were a bit to sharp for my taste, this one just hits the spot.

Had the perfect excuse to visit the treehouse this past weekend. Was meeting up with a friend in Western, MA before conquering the slopes in Vermont. This is an absolute dream of a tailgate beer. I have only had Haze one other time, the Brady return game to Foxboro when we were pleasantly surprised that Tree House was being sold in the stadium. My goodness, what a delicious liquid. Massive citrus nose with grapefruit notes and several other tropical flavors. Taking one of these down after a few runs was an absolute dream. Refreshing and smooth. And, yes, I brought a glass for the tailgate. Veteran move.

Impressive dome head which never recedes completely. Excellent lacing with a variety of streaks and spots. The liquid is cloudy with a dirty gold appearance.

Grapefruit rind aroma along with some green vegetal/fresh cut grass notes. The malt is hard to tease out, but I would say it's closest to light wheat bread.

There's a berry sweetness up front. Richer body with a neutral level of carbonation. The hop is pronounced but not overwhelming. It's closer to black pepper with a notable alcohol warmth in the swallow. The sweetness returns in the aftertaste, but dissipates first leaving the peppery finish.

So maybe I made mistake of having very hazy first, but this one, while good, is so much like hundreds of other neipa's I have had. Murky darker yellow hazy body with a huge white head, spotted lacing. Big grapefruit and citrus with light pineapple lead the nose. Taste is much the same, some tangerine additions are nice. Body is medium-light with decent brightness and smoothness, not the most lush neipa ever. Does hide the abv very well

Pours a fairly light straw color, perfect foamy white head. Aroma is citrusy, grassy, earthy, slightly dank. Flavor is sharp citrus, lemon candy, spicy grapefruit pith. Creamy texture with ample bitterness throughout and a pretty dry finish. Overall a tasty brew, but there are a lot of other TH ipa’s that I prefer.

Pours a hazy (good thing based on the name) golden yellow color with a thick white colored head that laces the glass alot on the way down. Smells of sweet citrus and floral hop aromas. Taste is similar to the nose, big floral hop flavors with nice grapefruit flavors to round it out. Kinda tart but very smooth. Great feel, perfect amount of carbonation. Overall, another gem from Treehouse!

Poured from a can (09Jul2021) into a TH teku #properglassware

L: pours a glowing, totally opaque yellow orange with a huge, thick white head that’s slowly fading. Large, chunky lacing left

S: really nice fresh and juicy tropical fruit nose. Nice waves of mango, peach, papaya - some orange citrusy notes as well. It’s a brighter, freshly cut fruit type nose - less of that overly dank aroma, incredibly inviting. Slight citrusy bitterness in the background, but mostly it’s those peach and papaya notes for me

T: i’m a bit mixed on the swallow here. It’s a lighter more fruit cocktail flavor than I expected, peach and citrus to open. Papaya comes through in the middle, and would say I like the flavor more as it’s warmed slightly in the glass. There’s a pleasant, lighter grapefruit bitterness that comes through in the middle and carries through the medium+ finish. Abv works well

F: medium body, medium carbonation. Fairly smooth, slightly drying

O: delicious DIPA that certainly grew on me. Found the nose inviting, first sip was a slight disappointment but the flavor really won me over as I drank more (8.2% abv doesn’t hurt haha)

My first review ever and boy what a great one to start! My impression was how fresh, creamy, hazy, great combo of citrus and tropical with a nice finish. Great all around experience.
