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.

Haze is a great beer! If you like balance in a DIPA, this beer is for you... It's got a hazy but not completely opaque look to it, moderate hop bite and dankness, moderate sweetness with a medley of different flavors (some citrus, but not a ton, plus other tropical fruit notes), moderate carbonation, and a medium mouthfeel that's a little foamy, a tiny bit chewy, and a little syrupy. Like most Tree House brews, the alcohol is barely noticeable and it goes down smoother than it should. It's not dominated by any particular feature, but it does everything very well, and that's why it's been a standard at Tree House for years now. No matter how many new varieties they pump out, it's always worth grabbing a couple cans of Haze - it won't disappoint!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on December 24, 2019. A lot of peach on the nose with notes of orange and passionfruit. Flavor is citrus fruit and peach followed by tropical fruit. Has a lingering yet pleasantly hoppy finish.

Great combination between fruit and resinous dank. Soft smooth feel. Doesn't drink like an 8.2% beer. One of the great New England double IPAs. Delicious.

Pours a very hazy- what else to expect given that name-yellow color. A moderate frothy head quickly dissipates. However, a thin ring of foam retains throughout, as well as splashes of lacing.

The nose opens with delightful tropical notes of mango, pineapple, coconut and banana. Yet, there is a lovely counterpoint of zesty citrus aromas that feature notes of orange and grapefruit. Furthermore, one can smell leafy green herbal notes of pine and grass, each evoking traditional IPA dank was.

The taste opens juicy sweet with an ultra soft and frothy mouthfeel. Tropical flavors of mango, papaya, passion fruit and pineapple interact with pithy citrus flavors of grapefruit, tangerine and orange cream soda. Yet, the finish is dry with a resiny and dank bitterness that develops during the drink. Herbaceous notes of soft pine aid the balance, especially considering how doughy and creamy the malt backbone is. Medium to full bodied with a moderately gentle carbonation.

This is the sixth Treehouse IPA I’ve reviewed. Each, including this one, outstanding and world class.

Can courtesy of Yllib.
Hazy bronze. Nice fluffy head. Not great retention.
Smells like a balance of tropical fruit and citrus. All while being extremely pleasant.
Tastes like a full fruit salad of hop flavor. The hop bitterness is there but balanced perfectly with the tropical sweeter flavors.
Found mouthfeel to be a little fuller than some of the other treehouse staples.
No alcohol presence.
Reminds me of a slightly more user-friendly or “entry-level” heady topper.

Sweet and tropical hoppy aromatics on this one...slight citrus notes in there. Taste follows with a trop-hoppy finish with citrus notes one the swallow...great depth! Good!

From my friend Joe B. Canned 10/29/19 - “That dog just laughed at a pun!”

Very drinkable/quaffable. This is probably the best of the three Tree House beers I received (Haze, Green and Julius). 4.5

A - Pours an ugly very pale cloudy hazy yellow with a two finger white rocky head. Great lacing (+) 3.5

S - Wonderfully fruity, pineapple, grapefruit and orange with some sweetness and pepperiness. Mouthwatering. 4.75

T - Starts with some minor citrusy fruit and rind followed with hops that are herbal, almost medicinal in the finish. No where as fruity tasting as the aroma. Faint sweetness. The hazy finish does not overwhelm the bitterness. One of the more balanced NE IPAs I have had. 4.5

MF - Medium bodied, smooth, velvety, but with a dry sharp finish that arrives very late. 4.25

Pours light yellow, very hazy, finger of head, nice lacing.

Smell is huge burst of papaya and peach. Citrus in the background. This is just surging with fruit scents. Jumping out of the glass.

Taste follows the nose. Strong papaya and tropical flavors, sweet peach right in behind. Some citrus lingers afterwards. Only very mild bitterness throughout and some good cracker malt at the end.

Mouthfeel is not as impressive as Green and Julius. Thin to medium body, smooth carbonation, fine bubbles.

Another good entry into the previously unknown world of Tree House beers for me. I'm glad that each brew has its own distinct personality and doesn't just blend into one wavelength.

L-Super juicy, hazy, cloudy........slightly darker than OJ.........2 fingered head that doesn't quit........lacing is very thick

S-smells like a brewery with a mix of tropical hops and grain......papaya, orange and peach......some earthiness

T-taste is more citrus than tropical........orange rind, peach, passionfruit, lime........some pine and pith provides some bitterness in the finish......lingering lemon/lime aftertaste

F-Body is medium and silky.......some prickle from the lemon/lime.......very drinkable with perfect carbonation

O-great look and feel.........maybe not the perfect hops combo for my taste.......certainly can discern that it is a well crafted beer

LOOK: hazy light yellow. Foamy white head.

Perfume. Light fruit (maybe papaya or similar, but hard to pinpoint).
Soap, light citrus, perfume, very faint earthy notes and pepper in finish.

FEEL: smooth, light carbonation. Foamy.

Not a top beer for me.

This one is damn near crazy. I mean, wow! One time my baby mama dressed up in Lonely Lingerie for my 33rd birthday, and just like that surprise, Tree House Haze came to the party like the hot chick on Eric Clapton’s side. This damn thing is so pure and lush, it just may have been baptized. Beautiful and perfect hazy essence, is then bombarded by a massive, I mean MASSIVE apricot backbone. It’s damn near insane like Edgar Allen Poe on acid. This is the most perfect Hazy I have ever had.

Gorgeous pour, silky smooth grapefruit juice hazy. A heavy nose of pure woods - bark, earth, pine and moss. That chunky goodness follows through in the palate - burnt orange, some cherry almost beyond description. The after finish is lovely with nice candied notes

1 PINT can
Served in a stemless wine glass

This beer pours like orange juice. It is a pale orange color and turbid. It is topped with a couple inches of beige head that leaves great lacing.

The smell is loaded with tropical fruit. I get mango, pineapple, peach, and some grapefruit.

The taste is dangerously juicy. I get mango and peach with a light grapefruit finish.

Medium to full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel

This beer grew on me as I drank it. I liked it at first. I really liked it by the time I finished it.

The sum of its parts are perfection.
This is such a yummy beer. Please do not do anything immoral, illegal, or unethical to get this beer.

The look is nice but not exceptional
7 day old can.
The smell is tropical

The taste is mango pineapple with a dry ish bite on the finish. (Alter ego style)

Just wonderful. Have had several treehouse beers this is as good as any treehouse beer I’ve tried.

If you like this style it is a wonderful treat. Feeling very sad I am out.

Don't bogart that haze, or so the can says. I purchased the can directly from the brewery, it has a canned date of 7/2/2019 5 days prior to the date of purchase. The beer has a beautiful haze and is a thick orange yellow color. I get a slight fruity smell on the nose, very pleasant but faint. I smell peaches, and a little citrusy scent. The taste is peachy with no noticeable bitter flavors and a good amount of carbonation. The alcohol content is also well hidden in the flavor. The beer has a thick mouthfeel and is very smooth. Haze is a good representative of a New England Double IPA.

Haze pours a murky orange juice color with a fat and inviting 2-finger head and sticky lacing retention. the smell is huge citrus dominated by stone fruits; apricot and peach, as well as an array of tropical fruits. Not a hint of alcohol on the nose and just a minor hop resin. The taste is bitter orange, peach and guava, that's smooth over the palette with a bitter prickle on the tongue and a light, lingering bitterness.

Got some cans of this from my buddy out in Boston.

Pours almost a murky yellow orange with a nice head. Get notes of orange on the nose. Taste follows the nose with a very nice hop profile to balance out the beer. In my opinion one of the best parts of this beer is the malt bill. It really rounds it out. I wouldn’t change a thing about this beer.

Another outstanding NE-style IPA from this rockstar brewery. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, even though my expectations were sky high. Juicy, flavorful, creamy, well-hidden ABV and light body. Just an amazing beer. Fairly fresh, too - canned on 5/14/19. Pours a very nice hazy yellow color with lots of fluffy white head and good-looking sheets of lingering lacing that lasted for quite some time. I would have given it higher marks if the lacing or head were more impressive, but the haze looked quite good. Smells of juicy fruit - orange, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit, lemon. Maybe a little mango in there. I didn't quite detect the peach. A good hit of malt, vanilla and a little caramel as well. The trailing off aromas at the end were a nice floral bouquet. The taste follows the nose, and the juiciness and depth of flavor of this beer was just so impressive. The mouthfeel was just to die for - creamy, slightly sticky, full, smooth and that high ABV was so incredibly well-hidden. Drank and felt like a regular IPA, not an imperial one. Just the right amount of carbonation. This paired well with savory dinner and even better with sweet dessert. I'm looking forward to sampling the Julius can that I own, likely tomorrow or the day after!

Wonderfully juicy, creamy, big tropical fruit flavors, peachy, mango, nicely balanced by a minty, piney bitterness. Incredible feel, very soft, minimal lingering bitterness. Thick and hazy pale orange/yellow in the glass, lots of lacing. Drink as fresh as possible, a real treat.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed golden pour with thick fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Fruity and sweet. Citrus, peach, and mango.

T.F: Sweet fruit nectar and grains up front. Big time peach and tropicals. Lighter tangerine citrus and grapefruit. White grape juice, pineapple, and some floral character. Modest bitterness.. oily/sticky on the tongue. Lingering fruit at the finish.

O: An outstanding beer. One I could drink every day... complex, delicious, and so so easy to drink.

Murky, pale gold beer with a big fluffy head. The nose is filled with orange, grapefruit, peach and floral hops. Beer feels light and creamy. The taste is lightly sweet and complex. There is grapefruit, orange, peach and floral components. Finishes with a nice pithy bitterness.

This is my all-time favorite beer. It is strong in all aspects — full fine haze, hoppy & fruity nose and bursting with flavors — but has a feel that is particularly outstanding.

A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Lots of peach up front along with some orange and papaya. General citrus and light floral notes in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the peach and orange notes and then picks up some citrus and floral hops. This very slowly transitions into some grassy notes with low-moderate bitterness. Finishes with lingering citrus and grassy notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A super drinkable DIPA that verges on juice bomb, with just enough grassy and floral notes to keep it out of that realm. Definitely worth tracking down

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

Look is an opaque hazy yellow with a thin white head.

Little bit of peach and orange on the nose. Subtle but good.

Taste is spectacular. Tons of tropical hops well balanced by dry biscuit malt. Hides the alcohol super well.

So good.
