Very HazyVery Hazy
Notes: A kicked up version of Haze, Very Hazy is a beer that makes us Very Happy! Very Hazy conveys all the beautiful flavors of Haze, but with even greater depth and potency. Pungent grapefruit notes greet your palate while an underlying current of soft tropical fruit dances in the background. Just the right amount of bitterness balances the sweet fruit flavors while a velvety soft mouthfeel make you easily (and dangerously!) forget this one clocks in at 8.6% ABV. A huge and beautiful beer that maintains softness and delicacy - a beer we are very excited about!

Look...A light golden color with absolutely no light going through the glass. A sizable head of white fluffy foam.
Smell....mango and green dank citrus hop pineapple induced with a yeasty dankness all to their own.
Taste...absolute explosion of mango, pineapple, melon, green grass reminding me of very green with the Haze impact.
a bittering dry requiring constant sips.
Feel...A pillow lake with lily pads of foam and lacing. A quality they reserve for flavorful and mouth covering enjoyment
Overall...I mean everyone has references and I have only had 4 of these incredible beers but the willingness to have again is overbearing .HaHa. Any chance you can get these I would make the move. They have many fine offerings and this is just another. This beer is superior to very many even of the same style

Canned and reviewed on 8/26/22

Poured into oversized snifter. Completely opaque Hazy darkish yellow. Head settles to sticky lace that coats glass. Tropical notes on the nose, sweet and cracker in the background. Starfruit, citrus, slight dank but more clean. Taste is same, fruity, papaya citrus with nice hop bitterness at the end. Probably overused, but “pillowy” is the only way to describe the feel. Medley of fruits everywhere, clean yet silky finish, this is so good.

Canned 8/3/22. Purchased 8/16/22 at Charlton.

L: Pours an opaque gold with a thick big-bubbled head that stays a while. Irregular but pretty lacing.

S: Aromas of peach, strawberry, guava, lemon and tangerine. Quite a medley.

T: Citrus up front, followed by peach and strawberry. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with some dankness. Very little heat for the ABV.

F: A bit pricklier mouthfeel than is normal for Tree House. Medium carbonation.

O: Very enjoyable. The taste and aroma aren't quite as memorable as the initial appearance, but still a fantastic beer. Outstanding melding of peach/strawberry with citrus.

This certainly is hazy…

Drinking in a Frost 16 0z tulip
Pours a orange-juice color
Nice filmy head
Almost smells of orange juice

Astringent, citrusy taste
Slight bitterness to the aftertaste

This is supposed to be a great beer, but where is the malt? Where are the hops?

I’m not as eloquent as some of the reviewers below. I know that. But to me, this is just about exactly what a NEIPA should be. “Very hazy” is a very accurate description of the appearance. Big foamy head and lacing. Citrusy, weedy, dank, piney, and juicy. Mouth watering, smooth, subtle alcohol presence. A bit more bitter than I like, but pretty damn outstanding.

"Long days and pleasant nights" on the date code

Lovely look as per usual. Glowing gold, hazy, ok covering of creamy white head that leaves swooping lacing. The aroma is dank and earthy compared to what I was expecting, with some stonefruit and clementine sweetness underneath. Perhaps a tiny bit faded, but I might be having an off day. Delicious and enticing regardless. The flavor is (as expected) a barrage of peaches, citrus (sweet not tart or bitter) and weedy hop funk. There is definitely more to it but on the whole it is a balance between peachy sweetness, canteloup, clementine and the more resinous (but not sappy) character of the hops. Mouthfeel is spot on as usual, creamy, round and filling while also refreshing. Really nice beer. I think it was Haze that I once described as a sweaty hippie taking a nap in the shade after a day of harvesting peaches. Well in this case the hippie is also burning one and we are smelling his feet after stomping up some overripe peaches to make wine. Or something like that I have no idea...

a: hazy burnt orange copper color. 1.5 finger frothy off-white head

s: sweet melon, and sharp sweet citrus: mango, pineapple, tangerine. and passionfruit. papaya and loads of strawberry. a touch of earthy sweetness and caramel. peach and some blueberry cobbler. very pleasant smelling

t: melon, pineapple, and apricot. mild mango smoothie and papaya. peach and peach cobbler. passionfruit and some kiwi. creamsicle and light guava. the words don't do this justice - it's an absolutely amazing taste

m: medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. this drinks EXTREMELY light for an 8.6% beer

o: simply fantastic beer. delicious, and as mentioned drinks way easier than the abv. absolutely deserving of the ranking

really cool to get to drink this, so thankful i have people in my life who want to share this kind of thing with me, but i am just shocked that this comes in at number 15 on the BA top beers list, like in the entire world, seems outlandish for something i would not even describe as insanely well refined or anything, and yeah the hop profile is great, but it also has some burn, some unneeded weight, feels under carbonated to me, and really doesnt distinguish itself as elite in any way. that might sound harsh, if this was from my local watering hole i would be pretty stoked, but to get all in a tizzy about it is simply foolish, which is not true of all the tree house hyped hazy ones by the way, but is true about this one. super dense looking from the 12 ounce can, high frothy white headed and all, but dull a little bit and chewy, not as maybe well refined as expected or as very green was pretty much right next to it. i wish they told you the hops, but then i guess everyone would copycat it, but it seems somewhat conventional, like citra could be driving it along with something just slightly spicy at this dosage, a bit of bitterness which i dont hate, short of green burn, a fine line in this style and they walk it, but i am perhaps seeking a little more. it warms up favorably before the alcohol takes over, i get green pear, orange tic tac candy, and a little white grape, its tasty, even downright awesome, and i like the way it kind of permeates the tongue and hangs after each swallow, its semi permanent on the palate. not oily or slick feeling through, truly a new england type to its core. minimal grain flavor but all the body in the world, nobody would call this balance, and i dont need it to be, but it seems big for the sake of it, like the hops dont even want this much structure, and not that its forced, but just that its not perfect, as the ratings seem to suggest. i like their yeast and its used well here, its a little short on bubbles for a big one, at least for my preferences, and overall the flavor cannot be denied, this is yummy, but is it objectively amazing beer leagues better than the rest in this space? heck no. one of the more anticipated but least epic tree house beers ive cut into, which is still to say its still excellent, but it certainly has a peer group...

Lots of fruit taste. Excellent balance. Refreshing and doesn’t taste like the ABV it is. This lives up to its overall ratings.

Just dynamite haze - subtle peach, but not overpowering to where someone that doesn't like peach (me) wouldn't hate it. Fantastic creamy mouthfeel and balance - drinks like a 6%er - awesome beer.
