Massachusetts, United States
Notes: Green is an unequivocal crew favorite at Tree House. Over the years we have resisted the urge to brew GGGreennn as we have worked very hard to make Green the very best beer it can be with a carefully refined base beer and a very large kettle and dry hop additions. It's easy to overdo it, but over time we have learned how to adjust our process brewing the base beer to successfully accommodate a larger and larger hope additions without importing off putting characteristics. For GGGreennn, we pushed those principles to the extreme. The result is a richly hop saturated beer featuring notes of pineapple, guava, dried jackfruit, tropical fruit, and citrus. It carries a richness about it that is unique to classic Green, and yet never challenges or tires the palate. It is a pleasure to drink all the way through the glass. It is a beer we are proud to share with you, and hopefully it can serve to enhance a meaningful moment for you this summer.

16 oz. can dated 3/12/20, poured into Trillium The Six States glass.

L: 1F fluffy white head with pretty good retention. leaves lots of white lacing with a partial cap. Beer is a hazy orange juice color.

S: Grapefruit and lots of different tropical fruits. A bit of dankness and earthiness. Classic TH IPA nose.

T: You get the juicebomb of grapefruit, guava, pineapple, and what I am guessing is the jackfruit (no idea what that tastes like). Finish is slightly dank, slightly earthy, very slightly bitter and lingers for a long while.

F: Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, would say this is unusually well-balanced and constructed even by TH standards. Entire drinking experience is a pleasure.

O: Superior IPA.

During the pour a blast of citrus hit my senses. A nice lacing was left behind on the glass. Lovely taste of tangerine and grapefruit. The flavors lasted on the palette for a couple of minutes. The beer is is full bodied. The huge hop inclusion did not overwhelm the taste.

Poured hazy yellow with a creamy and foamy head that stuck around. At the nose is subtle orange sherbet with a light yogurt. Upon sipping, flavors are very mild compared to their other beers. Taste tropical fruits, dominantly oranges with a touch of vanilla. A little grassy as well. The mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy with medium body. Just slight hop burn at the back end. Overall, many TH beers are super juicy, busting with heavy fruits flavors. This one is a bit mild, almost more sessionable in a way. May be a more approachable beer on warmer days.

Pours hazy yellow. 1 finger head into my rainbow tree house glass.
Smell is sweet Malts and pineapple. A little yogurt maybe.
Flavor comes in hot at first. Super intense. Once it opens more becomes very well balanced with all of the flavors on the nose. Maybe a little creamsicle.
Probably my least favorite of the Green line tho.

Third time trying to write this review, just sometimes shit happens. Anyways, bought 4 cans of this in late October, drank 3, will prolly finish the final one tonight during the Marquette/Butler game.

Pours looking like orange juice/screwdriver, only if you ignore the dense 3/4" white head. This is about as good as this ugly style of beer can look. Aroma is true to the commercial tug job, this does push massive amounts of citrus and tropical fruit in the nose.

Taste is easy to take down, same medley of citrus and tropical fruit but without any garbage lactose. Mouth feel bouyed by that flaked wheat and/or oat combo trub bomb. Carbonation is done well, slightly lower than west coast as it should be. These are fun to drink. Gotta be careful, the sticker looks just like Aaaaaalter Ego (I get it, I think). Its similar to my take on so many Treehouse hoppy beers: They're definitely elite tier, but so are about 40 other breweries in California alone. Here you just have to wait in line and can only have 2 beers at the tap room, unlike in other parts of the country.

My 2nd pint at Treehouse Brewery. The 1st , Very Green, was certainly a tough act to follow. Less high octane than Very Green, nevertheless impressive.

Pours a hazy orange color with a moderate frothy and well retaining head. The lacing yielded lacing. Virtually the same look as Very Green.

The aroma is less pungent than Very Green, however, it’s soft tropical notes are quite pleasant. Aromas of mango, papaya, pineapple and guava are accompanied by notes of citrus.

Overall, a smooth and juicy hops forward brew in which tropical fruit flavors dominate. Less intense than Very Green, the soft tropical flavors evoke notes of mango, pineapple, papaya and guava. Pithy notes of grapefruit rind and orange add zesty flavors. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated and with a soft and creamy mouthfeel aided by oats, wheat and doughy malts. The finish is dry and pithy while the hops bitterness is gentle but just enough to balance. The sweetness is subdued, not cloying, as the palate is dry overall. The alcohol is well hidden.

Very impressive and an interesting counterpoint to Very Green. Perhaps I should have drank this one first. Nevertheless, worthy of its outstanding ratings.

Reviewed on 1/4/20

Golden white and cloudy. Beautifully thick and creamy look. Ooh lala.

The aroma is unbelievable. Milky and creamy oats in the grainy malt scent comes across wonderfully sweet. Mega hops... Stanky and danky hop smell that just crushes it. Super complex nose. Gggrrreen leafy earthy tinge, dried corn husk, mango chunks, Mandarin oranges and strawberries and cream top it off.

Perhaps one of the thickest hop flavor and feelz I've ever experienced. Hop milk shake "style" minus lactose..., huge fruits, bitter richness in the dry earthy tones. High citrus and tangy grains drive it home. Dried mango chunks, boozy pineapple and orange creamsicle flavors are righteous in the hops. The layers of complexity in the flavor, especially the hop charecter is top shelf quality.

Mouthfeel and texture is exactly what you want from the style. A crisp, airy bite hits the palate first, then a layer of smooth oats and creaminess rides through the middle. Juicy and dry... that's right!! Juicy and dry. Feels great.
Sum it up:

A - Opaque pale orange gold with thin creamy lacing.

S - Intense juicy tropical fruit aroma that permeates the nose.

T - Dank tropical fruit from start to finish: pineapple, guava, and peppery tropical fruit rind from beginning to end - no holds barred and finishes balanced between sweetness and bitterness.

M - Thick, soft, and dry on the back of the tongue.

O - Not worthy of a perfect 100 score but it's pretty darn close. Seek out.

Pours super hazy with a nice sticky white head on top. The smell has a very nice tropical fruit aroma. The taste has a nice juicy flavor with plenty of tropical hops flavors going on. The feel of the beer is super smooth and creamy. Overall this beer is outstanding.

Acquired today at the brewery. Canned 11/22/19. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House willi.

a: Opaque dark orange with a two inch thick white head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Intense tropical fruit.

t; Follows the nose with full DIPA strength, much hop bitterness balanced by the malt bill so that there is hardly any lingering bitterness. Dry finish'

m: Medium , smooth body and good carbonation tingle.'

o; Another outstanding TH "whale" which is flavorfully beautiful to the last.

Poured from a 16oz can into a treehouse willi glass.

Pours a hazy orange juice, typical treehouse color, basically matches Green.

On the nose is raw zesty hop esters, pineapple, mango. On the tongue it's smooth with tropical fruits, melon, a little more bitter than regular green.

aroma from the pour was a deja-vouz reminiscent of my first Treehouse and brought a 'summer-y' feel to this football sunday.... creamy froth and orange juice.... very nice.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Tree House Brewing Company, Charlton, MA
Served in a teku

The cloudy, ultra pale straw yellow liquid was topped by a small, frothy, bright white crown that quickly dropped to a clingy ringlet. Some streaky lacing trickled down the sides of the glass.

The nose contained a really interesting and diverse melding of fruity notes. Like most Tree House beers, honeydew melon seemed to stand out most. Lots of ripe peach as well. Peach candy rings came to mind. Quite sweet but appropriately so for the style. Bit of apricot and passionfruit. Hint of dankness. As the beer warmed, the citrus notes took over. The signature yeastiness found in most of their hoppy beers was also apparent.

Citrus dominated in the flavor profile. Juicy orange and tangerine notes came through big time. Tart and tangy but also fairly sweet. Wheaty and oaty in the center. Pineapple was also noticeable. Pithy, bitter citrus rind notes came through on the back end. The beer finished with loads of grapefruit peel and a fairly intense, resiny bitterness.

Excellent fluffy mouthfeel. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, moderate effervescence that frothed up very nicely on the palate.

Gggreennn! is another very solid offering by Tree House, although it does remind me a lot of their other amped up IPAs. At some point, I would really appreciate seeing more diversity with their hoppy beer flavor profiles.

poured from a 16oz can into a willi becher pint glass. pours a milky murkey yellow orange with a finger frothy white head. smells of a plethora of tropical fruits with an underlying dank aroma. it’s very much a green nose on this thing. taste is similar with the tropical and dank combination. mouthfeel is slightly less thick than regular green. i feel like this is a recurring theme on the amped up versions of their IPAs. overall i’m a little let down. it’s a really, really good IPA but it’s not any better than a spot-on batch of green.

16 oz can pours into an oversized wine glass. Canned 10-8, purchased 10-12, consumed 10-25. Pours a glowing hazy yellow-orange with a big off-white head and great lacing. Huge aromas and flavors of citrus, candied tropical fruit, and cotton candy. Just the right balance of hops and malt with almost no bitterness. Not too sweet. The 7.5% abv is nowhere to be found. Delicious.

Has the same beautiful appearance of Green -- opaque muted orange with a fluffy pure white head that lasts forever. Aromas are soft and tropical, while the flavors have more of a leafy bite than regular Green. Fluffy, smooth mouthfeel

Tall can from the source ...bottom tells me it was canned 10-8-19

Amazing looking hazed up NEIPA pour, long lasting and frothy cap, leaves a LOAD of all sorts of lacing. World class lacing.

Sweet fruits on the sniff, with melon and lime coming to mind.

Delicious creation, Tropical fruits abounding....melon, lime , mango, stone fruits, with lime and minty snap in the and well worth seeking out....

Pours a very turbid golden hue. No chance of light getting through. Orange and tangerine on the nose. It's got kind of an artificial pez character or at least something artificial. It's dry with some citrus character, but it's got that game over, fatal, acidic hop burn on the finish. Nate, those hops would've been better served in another batch of Green or perhaps Eureka. This is a dud. This has turned Green into an abomination.

Canned 10/08/19, so exactly six days ago.

A: Pours a light creamy orange with two fingers of dense, foamy head. Excellent retention and generous lacing.

S: Tangerine, pineapple, pith, hay. Nicely integrated and decently appealing.

T: Grass, hay, mild tangerine and pith, a bit of pineapple and lime. Finishes with a mild lingering bitterness/pithiness. The mild sweetness is on the lower end for this style.

M: Creamy medium-full body with medium-light carbonation that doesn’t do much to cut the creaminess. No alcohol.

O: Pretty tasty but not out-of-this-world good.

16oz can, Tree House snifter glass. Same appearance as Green- pulpy golden yellow body, unfiltered and hazy, one finger frothy white head, great retention and lacing. Smell is massive tropical fruit, mildly spicy herbal and floral notes, grapefruit and a bit of resin. It has that richness of regular Green, but the fruitiness is taken up a notch. Flavour follows to an extent- it tastes very much like Green but with a bigger tropical fruit and spicy hop bite to it. It has even more flavour to it than Green, which is kind of crazy considering how multifaceted and delicious Green is. It's a bit less nuanced, being the only drawback of whatever they did to amp up the underlying recipe. Medium bodied, soft and creamy, perfectly carbonated. Another winner from Tree House, but I would be just as happy with regular Green, which is not a bad thing with regards to this particular beer.

Another incredible, outstanding NE style IPA from Tree House. Canned date 7/30/19. Juicy, delicious, hazy, balanced, soft, dank. Just excellent. Pours a great looking very hazy orange-yellow color with some nice fluffy white head and fairly thick spotty lingering lacing. Smells deeply of ripe fruity hops, mainly mango, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, orange, guava, passionfruit and melon. Also malt, vanilla, floral and herbal hops in the background. Taste follows the nose, great balance between the mildly bitter hops and sweeter malt backbone. Perfect amount of dankness. Smooth, sticky, mild, coats the palate. Perfect amount of carbonation. One of my top 3 beers from this amazing brewery.
