Notes: For this special rendition of Julius, originally brewed for our 3rd-anniversary party, we push the level of citrusy hop character to the fringes of obscenity through additional kettle and dry hopping with the base Julius blend. Further, we amend the process of the base beer to create a denser and richer malt profile.

Decanted carefully in a Teku glass, JJJuliusss pours thickly with a densely packed head and gives off aromas of orange juice, melon, guava, and mango gummies. The flavor follows suit, with jam-packed and satisfying juicy fruit character enveloping the palate.

The beer is intensely citrusy when fresh, and over the course of a few weeks in the fridge softens into a supremely well-rounded, richly fruity, densely hop saturated delight - Enjoy!

Tree House Brewing Co. "JJJuliusss"
16 fl. oz. can coded "JJJUST GGGREAT 04/29/22 07:48:00". Sampled on 05/15/22

Notes via stream of consciousness: The can that I have in front of me is labeled JJJuliusss without an exclamation point and the label is white, not orange, but I'm pretty sure this is the same beer. The question is, what is it? I get all of these Julius beers confused. Ahh, this is Julius with extra hops added, first brewed for their 3rd anniversary. It's poured a very cloudy orange body beneath a finger's width of creamy off-white foam. As is the case with all Treehouse beers the head holds up really well and it leaves some very nice lacing about the glass. That hasn't happened yet but I can tell that it will based on experience. The aroma is fruity but also malty. It's sweetish and grainy with notes of orange, peach, and mango. I wish I had a Julius to compare it to but I drank them all! Ha ha! The flavor delivers that sweetish malt and I can taste the oasts in it. It's threaded through with notes of orange, peach, mango, melon, passionfruit, and lime. There's some resin to it, and a touch of pine. It's got a median bitterness but also a lot of acidic "hop bite" that balances it and eventually leads to a dry finish where resin and pine linger. In the mouth it's medium bodied but fluffy and smooth due to all of the extra proteins. As expected the head held up well and I now have craggy rings of lacing throughout the entire glass. I honestly can't say how much more aromatic or flavorful this is than the standard Julius but I think I enjoyed it more. I'll have to try to get a hold of more of both to do a side-by-side.

Pours a murky dark orange with two fingers of dense yellowed foam head. Great retention and thick rings of lacing.

Big orange in the nose. Hints of passionfruit, plum and gummy bears.

Same lovely mix of tropical fruits and orange citrus in the taste. A little herbal greeness and light pith in the finish creates some great balance that prevents the beer from being sweet.

Very soft, pillowy feel with restrained carbonation.

A top of class NEIPA. Tons of depth among the varied fruit flavors along with good light bitterness for balance.

One month old. Can to pint glass.

Look: Pours a full and hazy yellowish orange. Medium thick white head leaving a bit of lacing.

Smell: Orange. Grapefruit. Sweet and dank.

Taste: Ripe citrus fruits. Mostly orange, tangerine and grapefruit. Medium sweetness with a zesty, slightly bitter finish.

Feel: Full and juicy. Low carbonation. Slightly sharp.

Overall: Typical Tree House IPA which could easily be mistaken for a higher ABV DIPA (which is great). Rather edgy than smooth, but still nicely balanced. Overall a very good brew and a prime example of the style.

16oz can received as a gift from a friend. Purchased directly from the brewery. Canned on 12/7/2021, so this is exactly 4 weeks old.

Look: Pours a very hazy deep, copper-colored orange color. There is a thick, frothy off-white head. Lots of chalky sediment / protein and hop deposits at the bottom of the can.

Smell: The aroma is tons of citrus, vitamins, and green notes. Notes of orange, peach, papaya, and mango. There is a chalkiness as well as a faint creaminess to the nose. Given all the hype about this beer, the nose is underimpressive.

Taste: I suppose that there is some redemption with the flavor on the palate compared to the nose, but I am still underwhelmed. There is definitely a ton of hop flavor here and there is an interesting play between juicy, aromatic, creamy, and bitter elements. Overall, it's much more bitter and chalky than I prefer

Feel: The moutfeel is above average. It looks kind of like orange soda, but feels more like an orange creamsicle. Still, nothing spectacular to me.

Overall: Could it be that I am just not a "Tree House guy"? I do tend to like NEIPAs from other breweries. Is there just too much hype to live up to? I just don't get it; I have had a few Tree House beers, and by and large they have disappointed me. I will continue to try other Tree House beers, but I am not actively seeking them out.

Orange hazy body with a eggshell white head. Huge citrus but now joined with tropical notes of cantaloupe, mango, lychee and starfruit, contrasted with piney and pithy hops. Cantaloupe, orange, supporting lime, lychee, star fruit, mango, with various tropical background notes, piney and pithy hops contrasts lightly the tidal wave of juice. Feel is creamy, hazy, thicker, decently hoppy, and fully juicy. Delicious juice bomb with artful definition

I’m truly blown away by this beer. Obviously with all the other Julius variations, expectations were high and one would think there’s no way to improve them. But…this is such a massive tropical juice bomb that I feel lucky to even be able to enjoy a few cans. Absolute madness!

16 ounce can in a classic IPA tulip glass. It’s two weeks old.

Dense and thick looking apricot juice. The 1f white cap is dense, fluffy, and lasting. Heavy lacing.

I get the oh, mango, and sweet melon aromas.

Citrus, melon, and mango juice mix. Peach works its way in as well.

Medium bodied and very juicy. Citrus hop bitterness. Fresh juice feel finish.

As juicy as it is, still checks in as good brew.
