Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy bright orange color with a half finger of white head. The head leaves a beautiful band of lacing as it settles into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit, orange, and honeydew melon with a hint of fresh mangoes.

The flavor is literal hop candy. Candied oranges and caramelized mangoes followed by freshly squeezed orange juice, grapefruit, and papaya. The yeast is very present, bringing that signature bubblegum note that makes Tree House so great.

The feel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Soft, creamy, blah blah. Standard fare for Tree House.

Overall another fantastic DIPA from Tree House. The flavor is so juicy and sweet and that strong bubblegum note really brings me back to the first time I ever had a Tree House beer.

The beer pours a murky hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head that sticks around for a bit. It has medium low carbonation. The beer smells of cantaloupe, bubblegum, orange, and strawberry. The Taste follows the nose with cantaloupe, bubblegum, orange, and strawberry. It’s very soft and juicy. A standout among the tree House line up.

Had this during the Nevada/Boise State tailgate last Saturday. Soooo close, 31-27, at least we covered. Anyways, pours a yellow color, some haze, standard 1/3" white head. The aroma was similar to other Treehouse offerings, citrus orange, grapefruit and a milder stone fruit presence.

The taste is also the same, more restrained bitterness even with what tastes like a bitter ass Simcoe hop, softer unsweetened citrus, prickly carbonation on the mouth feel. Light grassy feel and levity to the beer, hides the alcohol extremely well. Still trying to find out what the deal is with these scores. Good beer, yes. World class? I dunno man. Seems like I've had like, hundreds of beers very similar to this. And even their own beers are similar to each other. Another thing I continually am not getting is the reference to tropical fruit. I haven't really got anything like that in their beers either. Just citrus forward.

pours a vibrant hazy orange, another great looking Tree House brew

smell is full of citrus and orange juice. very pungent

tons of mango flavor in this, great sweetness and lots of citrus fruity flavor. citra does shine through but some earthy woody simcoe hits me late.

very creamy for a dIPA and makes this very easy to drink. at 7.7% this on the lighter end of the dIPA spectrum which gives off a regular IPA vibe which is not a bad thing

easy drinker and tons of flavor.

S - Big aromas of musty hops little dank hops. There are some nice citrus peel and juice. Nice tangerine and oranges. Very juicy.

T - Taste is similar to the nose a massive surprising peaches and cream, juicy tangerine, bright oranges, there are really pleasant mango notes as well. Little papaya as well. Lovely malt backbone as well.

Pours a cloudy orange juice/cream color with a big three fingers of styrofoam head that you can take bites out of. It leaves sheets of beautiful lacing. (4.5)

Candied oranges, vanilla, mango, papaya. (4.25)

Creamy guava, orange julius, coconut oil\sunscreen kind of sweet/flabby body that is unexpected but not unpleasant and grassy bitterness way, way in the back. (4.25)

Creamy and soft, medium body, fairly well hidden alcohol. (4.5)

Very nice with that creamy fruitiness like Julius and others. It is big but super drinkable. Beautiful to look at. The aroma and flavor are a wide swath of tropical fruits and every part of the fruity hop spectrum. Very enjoyable, I'd absolutely seek this one out in the future. (4.5)

Hazy orange appearance with creamy head and lasting lace on the glass. Smells of papaya, orange, grapefruit, and some resin. Orange, tangerine and tropical fruit flavors with a bit of spice. Kind of hot on the back of the throat. For an Imperial IPA, it's on the light to medium bodied side with a fizz feel. Nice beer overall.

Tall can, 8-21-18 stamped on the bottom.

Super hazed pour, fluffy and lasting cap

Ripe pineapple sniff.

Super tasty, pineapple infused, lime, mango goodness. Smooth, juicy and quite delicious.

Pours hazy, light orange-gold in color, with 3/4 inch head. Taste is big tangerine, mandarin orange, and peach. Medium-heavy bodied, slightly bitter--moreso than most Tree House IPAs, moderate carbonation. I really enjoy this beer. Nice and complex juicy flavors. One of the more underrated beers in the Tree House lineup. An all day beer.

A cool, rolled can pours out that typical tree house look: orange and hazy. Needs an aggressive pour to get a head on it. Flavor on this is pure ripe mango, and it is huge! Some raspberry and pineapple after the swallow. Very creamy mouthfeel, and the beer itself is so light and quaffable. Awesome!

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a frothy two finger head that leaves a good amount of lace clinging to the glass.

The nose on this is potent with ripe papaya and mango. The balance is subtle, but a nice earthiness brings up the rear and gives it just enough bite. This is an awesome aroma.

What I love about this beer is the contrasting balance between the nose and the flavors. The nose is clearly tropical, but the flavors bring out something different. More Simcoe forward, earthy and grassy qualities become much more apparent, along with a noticeable malt bill and a subtle finishing touch of citrus peel. All that ripe tropical fruit from the nose is simple to balance a much more “organic” flavor profile. Very good.

The body has decent weight, very smooth with a medium carb level. Smooth and creamy, yet still refreshing on a hot day (like today).
