Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A beer brewed in the spirit of experimentation and the celebration of our 3rd anniversary… ! What we did here is we took a whole bunch of Mosaic and Amarillo hops, a classic punch of citrus purveying goodness, and added them to the Julius dry hop. The base beer is exactly the same, but the dry hop is altered tremendously. The result is a beer with all the deliciousness of the base beer with a layer of added citrusy complexity. Like devil Julius or something. A real treat!

Thanks goes out to colby600 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 10/10/18

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger off-white head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot), very nice diesel like. The taste is very nice hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot) very nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a very nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very very tasty brew. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake! Thanks Bill!

Trillium in a Tree House can. Sharp and fresh. Would try again, but I prefer Sap. Basically what you’d find at the brewery 90 min up the road. Can’t complain, an outstanding beer.

Canned 11/06/18 "TIM BUCKANOWSKI"

Picked up a few cans at the brewery. What can I say? Just something special about what TH does with their IPAs. This is as thick as fresh-squeezed orange juice and even more opaque with insane lacing. Aromas and flavors are off the charts. Zero bitterness but massive tropical fruit. A bit sticky yet super refreshing/juicy. Bonkers.

Appearance: Hazy and opaque golden amber color. A big, frothy, white head that settles down but still leaves a finger as I drink. Some lacing along the edge the glass.

Smell: The aroma of this beer stands out to me. Huge aromas of citrus including grapefruit and orange, stone and tropical fruit including mango and a lot of guava. Bready/doughy.

Taste: Very much follows the nose. Tons of tropical fruit and citrus.

Mouthfeel: Very soft mouthfeel with some lingering dryness.

Overall: This is an excellent NEIPA. Super soft mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Huge nose and very nice flavor to it. You drink a lot of these beers that seem to be lacking in one aspect or another, but this beer seems to hit on all cylinders. Great stuff.
