Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

Without question, one of the best beers I've ever had. Full smooth mouthfeel beyond compare; pours beautifully within a very hazy orange spectrum and mellows nicely after opening; a perfect mix of sweet fruits and bitterness that kept me coming back for more. Limited offerings make this a fanatical must have. The DIPA world has met its match !

Thank you to Drew for making the dream of VH a reality! Incredible stonefruit profile with beautiful resinous nose and decadent mouthfeel. Phenomenal.

What more could I possibly add to make people know that this beer is a must try/bucket list beer? Pours, well, hazy. Smells like something you should be enjoying on a tropical beach. As far the taste, you already know it's as close to perfect as you can get. Typical soft and juicy mouth feel that you'd expect from Tree House.
Overall...I think you get the picture.

Canned 3/23/17; drank 4/3/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a huge, noisy off-white head; strong, frothy lace.

Mango, pineapple, banana & mild dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Mango, pineapple & papaya flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish. Refreshing, balanced & very tasty. Better than most...

Most drinkable DIPA I've ever had. cloudy and citrusy hops like swish but the drinkability of ALL Day IPA. This is ridiculously good. Hides the heat better than any beer I've ever had

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Canned a week and a half ago. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a straw/light golden color with two inches of fluffy snow white head which deflates over the course of a few minutes leaving rings of lacing. Very good retention. The usual Tree House haze/opaqueness.

S: Smells like raw hop pellets, noticeable even from a few feet away; this mellows as it warms. Peach, white grapefruit, orange, kiwi, a bit of grass. Moderately sweet aroma with some light bready malt.

T: Tropical (peach) and white grapefruit notes dominate, alongside some supporting orange creamsicle character (no doubt accentuated by the ultra creamy body), finishing with a very mild and soft bitterness. Medium-light but fairly sweet bread malt character as well which lingers on the finish. The bitterness tempers the sweetness but it’s still fairly noticeable. A bit of astringency on the finish as it warms (I’m guessing hop derived).

M: Thick, creamy full body with light carbonation. Carb is maybe a bit too light to really cut the rich body. Light alcohol warmth.

O: Among the better of the Tree House hazy IPAs, on par with the usual suspects (e.g., Trillium Melcher St. and Tired Hands Alien Church). I like sweetness in an IPA like this, though this is a hair more than ideal (if I had to complain about something).

This is absolutely excellent. It holds all of the characteristics that make Tree House great. This is hazy, super aromatic, love that bubblegum taste from TH, flavorful, packs a punch without overpowering. Delicious!

I feel blessed that there were surprise cans (two) at the end of the line to go with the daily offering. Pours thick into a deep, cloudy orange, with almost a little grey to it – like orange fog. The head dies down quickly leaving tight lacing along the sides. Very small bubbles of carbonation. Solid hop foundation with layers of subtle top notes – they reveal themselves as they moves around my tongue. Mango and orange highs, with some notes of grass, hay, and earth, with some rising bread dough mixed in – yet none of these flavors dominates. So soft and smooth – even with the higher abv there's only a little alcohol bite. This one really makes me slow down and savor it as it deserves.

Treehouse V Hazy, thanks for the share Josh.

This one pours a surprisingly very hazy bright orange, looks super thicc, with a lot of lacing.

This smells pretty tremendous, with a ton of mango and pineapple, mainly, and a hint of pine and weed. This is just so pungent.

This is probably the best beer from Tree House that I've had. There's just so much tropical-ity here, mangos and pineapple and juicy tangerine, with a slight but pleasant bitterness. This has a nice creamsicle quality to it.

This is medium bodied, definitely creamy and full feeling, with that classic TH mouthfeel that's always killer.

This is absurdly nice. This is a really killer IPA.

Canned 3/23/17.
Reviewed 3/31/17.
Poured into Tree House tulip glass.

A: Very turbid, light golden orange in the glass. A full finger of white/off-white head - somewhat rocky bubbles. Dissipates to a film.

S: Peaches, mango, and orange are leaping out of the glass on this one. At the same time, it smells dank. Haze is missing an explosive aroma like some of the other Tree House beers, but Very Hazy delivers. Maybe a slight hint of bready malt, but hardly noticeable.

T: This is incredible. the flavor really pops in an explosive way. It's that blended fruit smoothie that Tree House is known for. Big mango, peach, orange. The flavor doesn't just explode, but it really shines in your mouth in a way that I have never seen in another IPA. The bitterness is seductively smooth. The dank character that is familiar from Haze. Bready malts are present, but subdued and overshadowed by the dankness. Typical Tree House yeast profile still very present on the back end.

F: This isn't quite Green/Very Green thickness, but I have yet to encounter another IPA that is. It's still medium-plus mouth feel, still pillowy and fluffy. The thing that makes this beer what it is, though, is the carbonation. The carbonation is absolutely perfect. It rolls over the tongue, but still lingers on the inside of the mouth.

O: This is amazing. I was nervous diving into this beer that this beer could not possibly live up to the level of hype that surrounded it. But it did and then some. This is on its own level.

A 16 oz can poured into a Tree House teku. The date was smudged but it looks like 3-23-17.

Appearance- A hazy pineapple-orange color with a thick 2 finger plus head. Nice lacing down the glass.

Smell- A super aroma pineapple, peach, and grapefruit. As soon as I opened the can it was screaming drink me. The fruit and hop aroma really sets Tree House apart from other beers.

Taste- The fruits blend so seamlessly blend with a hop kicker for the finish. A little dryness for the finish but so juicy.

Feel- A fluffy feel with no bitterness or alcohol. Medium carbonation and smooth.

Overall- A phenomenal DIPA from Tree House. I'm not certain how you would get a better blend of juicy fruit taste with the nice hops. Easily one of the best DIPAs I have ever had. I could only get one and it was definitely worth it.

This is treehouse's best beer. The look of this beer was like straight up peach/orange juice. Smell was of peaches,mango, pineapple. The taste and mouthfeel were exceptional. It's like drinking a thick pillowy cloud of peaches, oranges, mango, pineapple. This improves an already great beer in Haze. Amazing

I like regular Haze but it isn't amongst my favorite TH beers so I didn't expect this version to completely blow my mind. But it did.
Beautiful completely opaque hazy neon peach appearance. The nose is peaches and cream with some citrus and birthday cake.
Stone fruit dominates the taste. Much more peach. Lots of apricot. Hints of orange and grapefruit as well as some soft serve vanilla ice cream. No malt presence. No bitterness. The booze are hidden much more effectively than most TH DIPAs. There is absolutely no trace of the 8.6% ABV.
Mouthfeel is huge. Full, fluffy, and creamy. This is Tree House at it's finest. This beer has no flaws (except for the fact that it tastes nothing like a beer). A really unique drinking experience.

Poured into a TH tulip at BTs Smokehouse about 15 minutes after picking up at the brewery. Very Hazy is aptly named, about a finger and a half of big bubbles in the head and beautiful lacing. Aside from the bubbles, looks like orange juice in the glass. Smells like tropical fruit and citrus....quite strongly. Tastes incredible, very hop forward citrusy and tropical. Its balanced with a slight biterness on the back end, no alcohol tasted in this at all....very dangerous at 8.6%, and I mean that in the best way possible. Another wonderful offering from the best brewery I've had the pleasure of visiting.

I like haze. Its one of the better treehouse beers. I expected to LOVE this beer but came away thinking it was kind of meh. It has a peachy nose and some peach/ pasonfruit vibes but doesn't do it for me. It also doesn't feel as creamy as it should. Flavour isn't there. Honestly, I'd skip this one.

Feel: super smooth, medium body and carbination, velvety smooth, super drinkable.
Overall: this beer was an honest pleasure to drink, smooth, flavorful till the last drop... and 30 min after the last drop it still tasted amazing.

hazy as it is named. Mango, pineapple, glorious fruit bomb with the distinguished soft fluffy feel of all TH brews. Glass lacing from top to bottom. These people nail it every time. Great job again Nate

This is the best beer I've ever had. Absolute perfection. Since we're all incredible beer snobs now, we can still find something to nitpick about a a King Julius or a Very Green, but not this one. It is simply perfect. Mango, pineapple, Guava, dank, turbidity, pillowy, hazy, whatever. Incredible.

Can poured into tulip.
Typical treehouse look and smell. Different kinds of fruit, right amount of bitterness.
Like any of the other th i've had, this is good, really good, but definitely not top 25 good.

This might just be the greatest beer that Tree House has ever had and that I have every tasted. This beer is perfectly named with a truly opaque murkiness. Incredible head/lacing, a bouquet tropical aromatics that smells like fresh blended juices. I get a lot of guava, papaya, passionfruit, and pineapple. There is a ever so slight hop/bitterness note towards the end that sparks and sizzles. There are so many layers of complexity that it is rather difficult to capture solely with words. Drink fresh. Cheers to the many blessings Tree House has bestowed upon me.

What can I say - Its Tree House for god sake.
Can they do anything wrong? Seriously....How do they do it.

This is easily one of the best beers I have ever had.
I've been lucky to have several beers from Tree House and hope to keep adding to the list.
Very hazy is 8.6% and incredibly drinkable. Full of flavor, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Hoppy of course but not overpowering. Just another incredible brew.

Very hazy (hurr), very little head. Fresh, tropical smell. Feels thick, almost. Almost no alcohol taste (some at the end), sweet fruits, mostly tropical pineapple and mango, slightly resinous.

Huge thank you to Mark for sharing this treat.

Hazy, juicy body with a half inch of head. The aroma is spectacular, offering a bouquet of tropical fruits and fresh hop. Cantaloupe, pineapple, orange, grapefruit. Sweetness perfectly melding with bitterness. Crushable. Amazing. I don't know how this beer can improve. In regards to IPAs, Tree House reigns supreme.

Poured from a 16oz can dated 6-20-16

L: Pours classic hazy Tree House style (No pun intended). One finger of white, whispy head that dissipates relatively quickly.

S: Nose is pineapple, grapefruit, peaches.

T: Tastes of tropical fruits with a nice resinous hop finish that shines through in the background.

F: As always, great mouthfeel and body, consistent of a Tree House IPA.

O: This is another fantastic IPA from Tree House. Not as fresh as I've had (Reviewing 9/27), and I think its somewhat noted here. However, I think that compliments it even more that it still has such bright hop and fruit characteristics. Excellent.
