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!

From a 16oz can into a tulip. Drank this last night and I forgot to record the canning date. Sometime mid-November 2022. Can message: "Stay Gold Pony Boy"

Pours an opaque brownish orange with about one finger of white head. Incredible lacing and retention.

Strong aromas of oranges and earth/dirt.

Taste follows but mellows on warming with a little less distinctness.

Soft, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation.

This beer is excellent-for what it is. Seems to be missing that "little something extra" that most of their DIPAs have. That said, if you hand me one of these, I'm gonna drink it. Smiling.

Its with a jaw tightening, lip smacking, mouth watering series of sensations that gives Tree House's power packed Julius a newer and juicier life that'll leave us stuttering for more.

The excellence in Jjjuliusss is felt starting with a similarly creamy peach and golden blend of colors and airy textures as the original Julius. The beer's dense and foggy appearance only works to make it more appetizing. A slow separation of ale from froth suggests a viscous character that carries over to an even more creamy, tangy, sweet and fruity taste just after a grassy, citrusy, herbal and piney perfume than any before.

Less grassy and herbal in taste, the flavors that explode on the middle palate are dominant with all-things-orange. Tangerine, in all its tangy, fructose-sweet, branch-ripe and fresh squeezed vibrance springs to life with a zesty support of red grapefruit, lemon and lime. Tantalizing tropical fruits join the taste with pineapple and kiwi nuances. Smooth in the beer's fleeting taste, a sense of bitter sherbet with citrus zest apply their final and lasting contributions to balance.

Creamy and malty-dry, the taste starts fuller and plush, but trailing bitter, herbal and dry, the soft sappiness of freshly shaven spruce links up with fragrant citrus peel for an evaporative texture and a nearly teeth-churning creamy tartness that aligns itself with sorbet desserts- Its surprising that a single sixteen ounce can can hold so much flavor.

Quite possibly the best beer I've ever had. Enjoyed this even more than the King. Accolades fail me at this level of perfection of the style. Effortless drinking and just pure unadulterated enjoyment. Thanks goodness this brewery is a long drive away or they would have all my money.

Canned on 7/29/22; consumed on 9/2/22

Pours a turbid, dark orange body capped with multiple fingers of dense, fluffy, white foam; excellent head retention leaves a finger of rich cap, a massive, fluffy collar, and myriad spattering of chunky lacing tossed around the walls of the glass.

Aroma highlights mango gummies accented with a slight mustiness hinting toward a boggier overlay of guava peel and tropical compost over time; a dense, bready malt backing remains prevalent as light papaya and melon brings a soft freshness to the back end.

Taste offers mossy mango contrasting tangy orange juice upfront, with lingering guava engaging distant melon over the mid-palate while sweet, boggy-dank sensations flow alongside a lime-pineapple juiciness on the back end.

Mouthfeel shows a medium-full body and a moderate, rounded carbonation soon easing to resoundingly creamy, smooth textures; a juicy twang levels density past the mid-palate to an effortless, pillowy grit lingering on the finish.

A tropical hop smoothie, extensively creamy and leveled with weighty resins in-flux with the rampant saturation; a busy density attenuated to Tree House's usual high standard of NEIPA.

7/31/22 Canned 4/29. Ultimate ripe citrus fruit bomb. Intense. Thick body. Sweet, soft, pillowy. A once in a while brew, not an everyday favorite.

Appearance - The beer poured an unnatural shade of orange with a white head and generous lacing.

Smell - The nose had an orangey nose with a malty backbone.

Taste - The beer tasted more like orange juice than beer. It was like Sunny Delight got poured into a bitter IPA. There was a maltiness amid the body. Bitter orange rind lingered in the finish.

Mouthfeel - The body was thick!

Overall - Based on the description, I was expected the beer to be sweeter.
