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.

4.1/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

(16 oz can, 04/08/21; purchased at TH by my brother; kept stored away cold till today... poured in stages into Trillium fat tulip)

L: opaque, milky, pale, orange-amber liquid; relatively tight, cottony foam cloud perched atop, lasting a good while... steady, messy, thin cap, thin collar, and a few streaky rings of lace

S: floral-angled, fresh-cut orange flesh (peel, pith, and meat, yet to be juiced); melange of tropical dried fruit essence (papaya, mango, maybe some passion fruit and/or soursop)... hint of creamy cereal oats in the back; soft, perfumy note of booze, but no overt ethanol presence

T: remarkably rolled-off, subdued fruity hop character; unclear, 'hazy' expression... bitter-leaning orange, mellow papaya, maybe even a note of lime hull... I didn't think 'peach' until I read the can, but yes a subtle hint of that too... the least 'sweet' of the TH hazies I've tried... whisper of peppery spice... even the malt/oat character is relatively clipped

F: incredibly smooth, from a booze standpoint, its edge its warmth rolled off antique lo-fi... mellow bite and flare of bitterness up front, which quickly fans out, washes away... the alcohol gradually, gently stuns the tongue; stealth... tapered on the edges

O: the least treble-y explosive, flavor-wise, of the TH I've tried, but still maintains a certain characterful depth in hop layers... was this an early experimental attempt that they just kept brewing for some reason? (1766)

Review 1528

I am stoked to consume this beer! Thank you WunderLlama for giving me this beer. The beer is 44 degrees and served in a nonic. The pour of the beer created a magnificent three-fingered head. The bright white foamy and creamy head left lacing on the glass as it slowly dissipated. The color of the beer is SRM 3, pale straw with light golden colors. This beer is hazy. The appearance of the beer is exceptional.

The initial aromas in the beer are citrus, lemons, papaya, and pineapple. Nosing further, I detect toasted bread crust, oranges, floral esters, a hint of herbal, and a malty sweetness.

The flavors in the beer are orange, lemon, papaya, pineapple mango, bready, floral esters, a hint of phenols, a dash of herbal, and a subtle earthiness.

The mouthfeel of the beer is astringent and dry.

The body of the beer is medium, medium carbonation, and a full finish

A beautifully constructed beer. The flavors and the balance of the beer are on point. This is what a NEIPA should taste like. Excellent beer. I wish I had more.

Canned 4/23/21.

Pours an opaque dark yellow, with a short bubbly head that reduces to a film. Lovely irregular lacing.

S: Peach, orange, tangerine, pineapple. A bit of bubble gum.

T: Follows the nose up front, then smooths out and finishes dry but only slightly bitter. Zero alcohol heat, despite the 8.2% ABV.

F: The usual soft and awesome Tree House mouthfeel. Appropriate carbonation.

O: A delicious DIPA with no discernable flaws.

Haze from Treehouse. Received on 9/4/21 from @Rub_This_BBQ in NBW BIF #13. 12 oz can stored upside-down at home at 42 degrees. Reviewed 16/4/21. Note that I use DD/MM/YY protocol.
Undated can. Served at 42.4 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter. Final temperature 53.4 degrees.
Appearance – 4.25.
First pour – Pale Straw (SRM 2), murky and nearly opaque.
Body – Straw (SRM 3), murky and opaque. When rear-lite, same.
Head – Large (Maximum six cm, aggressive center pour), floral white, high density, average retention, diminishing to a two to four mm crown and a thick partial cap. As the head collapses, multiple fragments of bands of lacing remain above the crown. Second pour produces a high density 0.5 cm head.
Lacing – Good. Head retraction and volume reduction leaves a wide band of tiny to medium bubbles. See also above.
Aroma – 4.25 – Pineapple followed by pine. No malt, no yeast.
Flavor – 4.5 – Begins moderately dank with some generic tropical fruit in the background yet somehow refreshing. No malt, no yeast. No alcohol (8.2 % ABV, as marked on container) taste or aroma. A weak gastric warming occurs. No dimethylsulfide or diacetyl.
Palate – 4.5 – Medium, creamy, soft carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 4.25 (After deducting 0.25 point for undated personal container) Pleasing aroma and flavor, smooth and refreshing on the palate.

Can @ Monkish. Cloudy golden-orange beer with a finger of soapy white foam. Nice tropical fruits (mostly pineapple), pine, and oily citrus on the nose to start. There’s a bit of underlying sweetness here, but it’s fairly mild. The flavor starts off with a lot of citric hop character such as grapefruit and orange, but there’s a pretty strong pineapple juice thing going on, too. Moderate bitterness and a slightly oily finish. Kind of heavy on the tongue.

For an IPA the smell and taste cannot get any better. A lot of Treehouse beers fade into memory as tasting a lot alike, great stuff but not individually memorable. However, Haze is such a unique standout. The ability to make hops taste both of peach and hops is amazing. By far my favorite Treehouse beer.

Every TH beer seems to blend into each other. That’s what happens when the same yeast is in every beer. That being said, that means every product is solid. Haze...has a distinction. Really good, hazy style, but has a slight WC finish and bite. My favorite IPA I have ever had.

16oz can received as a gift from a friend. Purchased directly from the brewery. Canned on 9/30/2020 with "I Want Haze You Want Haze We All Want Haze" stamped on the bottom, so this is almost 3 months old.

Look: Pours a quite hazy yellowish orange color. Looks kind of like super unfiltered peach-pineapple-mango juice. Small head with some lacing.

Smell: Very pungent initially. A lot of over-fermented tropical fruit aroma including orange, mango, guava, dried papaya, and pineapple along with a significant green and dank finishing note. A bit of sharp, vegetal onion also. The nose is very sharp, before tasting the beer I am not sure how much I like it on its own. A more pleasant pink grapefruit aroma comes through later on, along with some spice.

Taste: Interesting in that this is bitter up front (which you don't usually get with these NEIPAs), followed by sweetness and tropical fruit and lots of citrus rind, and then more bitterness on the finish. Something tastes a bit off about this beer to me, and I can't really place it. It could be because it's not the freshest (almost 3 months old), or it could just be that it's not my taste. Probably the biggest positive about this beer is that the 8.2% ABV is pretty well hidden.

Feel: Nice mouthfeel. Soft and pillowy. Appropriately carbonated.

Overall: My third Tree House beer. I wish that this beer was more complex - this could be due to the age. I look forward to being able to re-review this one when I can enjoy a fresher offering. The flavor of this beer has grown on my since I tasted it initially, but it still seems a bit lacking to me. Well-made for sure, but again I think that it ideally needs to be enjoyed fresher.

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

From a 16oz can dated 11/10/20 into a pint glass. Message on can: R.I.P. A

Pours an opaque yellowish orange with about a finger and half of frothy white head that lingers forever and leaves incredible lacing.

Smells of peaches, nectarine, orange, grapefruit and a bit of pineapple.

Taste follows-very juicy with a moderate amount of piney/earthy bitterness on the back end of the sip. Maybe just a hint of alcohol in there as well.

Mouthfeel is soft and smooth-unbelievably drinkable for 8.2% abv. Mild bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation.

Overall, another top notch beer from Tree House. Although I enjoy some of their other offerings a little more than this, I'm not turning my nose up at it.

Hazy yellow with a bubbly foam on top. Some spotty lacing down the sides of the glass. Orange citrus aromas highlight a soft nose, just a touch of hoppy resin and booze detectable as well. The flavor has a lot of complexity going on with lightly fruity flavors. The can describes peach and papaya flavors, as well as orange juice and there's no arguing with that. There is also a mild hop bitterness that just takes the edge of the sweet flavors so expertly. All those flavors are nestled into a medium carbonation and full body and create a balanced and extremely pleasant experience. Incredibly enjoyable to sip on and reflect on just how expertly crafted this beer is.

Murky medium blonde forming a modest white head wit good retention. Moderate carbonation. Nose is dank with pine, grapefruit, pineapple, marijuanna, cat pee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit chewy. The taste is a recap of the aroma. Firm bitterness. I had this back to back with the green and honestly I couldn't tell the difference even with my eyes open. The smell, flavor, mouthfeel seemed the exact same to me.

Did the children have a good week in Mantucket? Was it a long ferry and drive back? Was there too much going on unloading the car and getting the kids into bed and putting stuff away? Thanks, Haze. Solid straw gold look, with a 1/4” head on a soft pour and 3/4” with a second hard pour in a tulip glass. Lacy foam coating the glass during the 2nd overtime Dallas win! Nice citrus and sweet flavors coming through, passion fruit or papaya. The hops barely comes through and nicely controlled. The aroma is ne dipa all the way, citrus, peachy, papaya, mango. Nice finish, on the drier side. Double ipa? You would never know it, not boozy and immensely drinkable!

L: Hazy yellow/orange with a foamy white head that dissipates and leaves good lacing.

S: Candied citrus, orange, peach, and lightly toasted malt.

T: Mellow bitterness, but heavily resinous flavors of orange, grapefruit, peach, and mango. The malt comes in with some notes of bread and honey.

F: Medium bodied and dry, good carb and a creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: An insanely juicy and drinkable DIPA. Very well executed and definitely worth seeking out.

Canned on 8/7/2020, almost a month old which is fine by me. Orange, peach, candy aromas, juicy as hell. Citrus flavor, bit of minerals, tasty. Overall I like the aroma more than the flavor but this is a good one.

LOOKS: Opaque, and a burnt orange like the rest. White foam that sticks around and leaves a thick lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Large tropical notes. Sweet white dough. Little bit dank, too.
TASTE: The sweetest TH brew that I've tried. Some oj, and papaya. Mild bitterness that doesn't last. Lots of tropical goodies.
FEEL: A bit creamy up front and then quite dry on finish. Bordering on full body with about average carbonation.
OA: Least favorite of the bunch that I've had. That sweetness lingers; not a big fan of that. Otherwise, big hop notes again, and flavorful.

Canned 7/10/20

This was one of the ones I already had on the first night of getting the mixed case, but I really wasn’t thinking much of it as I drank it idly so I wasn’t impressed. Let’s see how it performs under a watchful eye

Pours a zazy, opaque pale yellow with 4 (!!) fingers of soapy white head that fades very slowly and leaves tons of lacing

As much as this looks like hazy pineapple juice, it smells like it too. Tart pineapple, sweet blood orange, banana, and papaya. Lighter notes of pepper and citrusy hops

Very juicy on the front end of the sip, with plenty of creamy peach, orange rind, and melon. Mid palate brings more creamy and sweet tropical flavors. I get a hint of coconut milk backed by citrusy hops. The aftertaste is long and sweet, with smooth caramel malt and banana

Full bodied with very mild soft carbonation, this feels heavy, but certainly not 8.2% heavy. Finishes sweet and a bit sticky

This was much better than the one can I already had (which was borderline warm) and makes for a damn solid IPA. I don’t think it quite reaches the levels of the average rating, but it’s good stuff regardless

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. Canned 7/1/20.

Appearance: turbid medium-yellow hue with a thick finger of frothy ivory foam atop. Looks good indeed!

Smell: orangey, a little piney, a little herbal, and nicely juicy. Straightforward, but enticing.

Taste: lots of orange and tropical fruit notes, along with a nice piney note as well. Very juicy, but with a nicely balance bitterness. A bit on the sweet side, but still, very good indeed!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a nice creaminess.

Overall: the flavor of this beer is great; it really appeals to me. Another top-notch beer from Tree House.

Pint can poured in to a nonic glass. Can is dated 05/26/20.

Look- Murky, golden orange color, impressive off white head with great retention and tons of sticky lacing. Little carbonation streaming as it sits.

Smell- Citrus (mandarin orange/tangerine, grapefruit, tangy lemon and lime), heavy tropical fruits (pineapple, mango and passion fruit), peach/nectarine, grainy malt, slight dank and grassy/herbal notes.

Taste- Really juicy peach, citrus fruits and tropical fruit, sweet malt, pine and earthy hops comes through slightly here versus the aroma.

Feel- Medium/heavy bodied and soft, somewhat sweet and sticky up front with a light bitter finish, not too bitter. Moderate/light carbonation on the tongue.

O- This is a great DIPA. I had a Perfect Storm right before this and this didn't shine as bright as that to me but still terrific.

Looks like a Tree House beer snuck under the radar.

Pours on the upper echelon side of appearance for a hazy ipa, nice bright yellow color with evenly dispersed haziness throughout, half inch head on the top, white in color. Aroma pops so nice, citrus, stone fruits of the sweeter variety and ripeness.

Taste divides up the different kind of hop fruit notes you get, with a solid almost old school bitterness. Peach rings, orange and tangerine candied, but it doesn't take you into sugar town, there is a C hop like grapefruit bitter punch that counter balances very nicely here. Throw in some weed like notes to round it all out. Flaked body isn't watery, just absorbs alcohol it seems. Jeez these guys do double ipa so well in terms of making it so drinkable in an effortless fashion. Its like an R Truth promo, just golden every time.

I've only had 2 cans of this, so I'll definitely revisit next time we head out that way. Seriously impressed and these guys don't have to second chair to anyone in this world in the dipa game.

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!
