Tree House Brewing Company
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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours a hazy yellow orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Huge waves of tropical fruit up front along with citrus and floral notes. Pineapple and guava stand out

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with tons of tropical fruit followed by some lighter citrus and floral notes. Again, pineapple and guava stick out along with orange and grapefruit. Light bitterness. Finishes with lingering tropical fruit

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy

O: An amazing NE IPA that is incredibly easy to drink. Super saturated Green meets a slightly lower abv Very Green. Highly recommended

Sweet, tropical hoppy, and earthy/grassy nose on this one! Taste follows with a grassy and earthy, melon hoppy, subdued bitter finish. Feels great for a single...grassy notes are dominant here. Good, but a little unbalanced with the earthy bitterness.

Can dated 11/11/20. Wonderful pineapple smell. For some reason, I like the “Green” variants — Very Green, Gggreen, etc. — better than “Green” itself, and this is no exception.
Taste starts out with citrus, but finishes with a terrific, lingering, and balanced bitterness. Nice!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Very nice pour into a tegu glass. Cloudy orange hue with moderate lacing that comes off a nice tight bubbled head. Some nose notes of both tropical fruits and citrus fruits. There is some soft baked bread and oat notes that come through as well. The palate brings the resin pine hop notes forward to meet up with the fruits. the tropical fruits more prominent than the stone on the flavor profile particularly some grilled pineapple. The ale finishes beautifully with a richness on the mouth and a good bite of bitterness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a bright medium gold color with a off white 2 finger silky head that has spotty lacing. The aroma has bright, floral tangerine notes. Taste is dense with very pleasant citrus hop flavor. A blast up front that stays to the finish. Not too sweet, but well balanced with a grassiness and light bitterness. Maybe a little stone fruit behind the tangerine. Very soft feel. This one has a great rating that is deserved imo. I wouldn't call it a 5 but certainly close.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Canned 11/11/20. "How gggreen are you?" stamped on the bottom

Coming to this one fresh off the heels of the base beer, Green, which I wasn't all that impressed with. This one isn't quite as acclaimed, but still sits at #131 of all time on this site. Also ironic that a beer named "Gggreennn!" is beer #420 for me

Pours a hazy radiant goldish orange with 2 fingers of white head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves nice lacing

Despite being about a week older than the can of Green I had, this smells even more fresh than that did. The aroma seems more tropical here, lots of cantaloupe, mango, pineapple, papaya, and tangerine backed with oily hops and biscuity malt

The taste starts off with loads of citrus, orange and pineapple with some tart lime in the background, as well as oily hops. The swallow brings notes of grapefruit rind, pale malt, tangerine, and resinous hops. A bit more balanced than the base beer despite the extra hopping

Just like the base beer in feel, medium in body, except with just a bit more carbonation for a zippy feel. Finishes mostly dry and bitter

Definitely better than Green itself. Funny, I didn't see the same thing with Julius vs Jjjuliusss!, where the base beer was miles better. Regardless, both good beers. I'm sad to have made it through all the reviews for my case from Tree House, but I suppose I should get back to reviewing other styles :)

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

From a 16oz can, dated 11/11/20. Served in a Foam-branded cervoise for no good reason.

Pours a bright and cheery, fresh-squeezed sunshiney-orange with two fingers of whipped, lathery suds. Retention is just shy of excellent, leaving a creamy, sudsy cap and collar and a thick, gobby blanket of lacing. Looks as close to a 5 as anything I’ve ever seen, so...

Powerfully aromatic aroma of tropical fruit basket. Pineapple, sweet orange, papaya and lemon.

Taste is pretty much exactly what the look and smell were leading me to expect, just with a little background citric bitterness. Ripe pineapple and orange slices with whipped cream, papaya, lemonade and grapefruit juice.

Feel is creamy, soft and doughy. Medium-hefty bodied but with ample, near-aggressive levels of prickly carbonation brightening and lightening things.

Sweet merciful Dionysius, this is total human catnip. Just lay me down in a trough of this stuff and leave me to flop around until the breath has left my body.

Look: pure Orange juice. Fluffy head with thick lacing.
Smell: tropical, stonefruit, little pine.
Taste: papayas, mango, grapefruit. Piney. Grassy. No alcohol presence.
Feel: juicy, but not so much it is filling or thick. Slightly dry finish.
Overall: even being biased toward west coast breweries I have to admit Treehouse just does the best neipa’s. Not too sweet and no hop burn or booziness. Downright near perfection.

L: Hazy yellow/orange with a thick head and great lacing.

S: Peach, grapefruit, mango, guava and black pepper. Subtle bready malt in there as well.

T: Moderate bitterness, big juicy flavor. Notes of mango, guava, orange juice and some peach make up the balance. The malt flavor is restrained but does provide a good bready backbone.

F: Medium bodied, fairly high carb which makes it crisper. Soft otherwise.

Overall: A phenomenal IPA. My second beer after Julius from tree house and it is stellar as well. If you want a juicy IPA with explosive flavor, look no further than Tree House Brewing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass. Body is juicy/hazy yellowish-gold with a small bubbly white head that disappears fast.

S: Very nice nose of tropical fruit - mango, papaya, ripe melon, pineapple - with a bit of ripe peaches.

T: Follows the nose, with juicy tropical fruit up front: pineapple-orange juice, ripe sweeter tropical fruits (mango, papaya), sweet ripe peaches and apricots, earthy melon rind and leafy green hops. Finishes with a nice tannic bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Good balance between sweet up front, bitter at the finish.

M: Creamy, juicy feel. Medium in heft.

O: Very good beer - I like this hop profile.

Consumed 9/8/20

Pale golden orange, very hazy, medium size white head that fades to a wispy cap, leaves some lacing
Like Green, but amplified (as expected), with loads of citrus, orange, tangerine, ruby red grapefruit, herbal notes, some pine, hoppy resin, dank notes, spicy notes, floral hops, white wine, tropical fruit, pineapple, melon, medium bitterness, pale malts, lightly doughy, lingering hops in the finish
Medium body, smooth and chewy, low carbonation

I've reviewed so many Tree House beers that some are beginning to blend together. I guess the only thing fair to compare to Gggreennn is Green, and I think I like Ggg a touch more overall. But it is hard to beat the original.

Matt, you're a saint. Thank you again for these ones.

Pint can - dated 08/05/20 - poured into a teku at 38°F.

Pours an unbelievably turbid banana cream yellow - topped woth two fingers of creamy white head with fair retention, leaving a sheet of lace as it recedes.

Nose: Identifiable Tree House profile, with soft, pale, oaty malt, that signature house yeast note, and all of Green's Galaxy influence. Peach ring candies, candied papaya, ripe apricot, white guava, papaya, a hint of honeydew, a touch of pineapple, which lends a fruity brightness, and just a whisper of that super late-hopped peppery note in the background.

Palate: The beer greets the palate with pale, oat-driven malt which lends just a moderate touch of sweetness. Tons of Galaxy right off the bat, with more peach, nectarine and papaya, and what I'm guessing may be Amarillo, which provides brighter tropical notes of guava, pineapple, and a nice candied orange note. The pineapple aspect builds and provides this nice juicy acidity to counteract the malt and dank Galaxy, and then that super leafy hop cone Galaxy note of Very Green comes in, bringing it back to pithy, resinous hop territory, with a lovely drying, digging, slightly bitter finish with fresh grass, leafy hops, resin, citrus pith, and a slightly herbal note.

Mouthfeel/Body: Like many of the upper echelon of Tree House IPAs, this beer is straight up fluffy, soft, and velvety plush. What makes this even better, is that the soft creamy feel doesn't come at the expense of drinkability. It's soft, but it isn't thick or heavy. It's actually super crisp, and doesn't fight back whatsoever. Effervescence is a touch on the lower side, but there's enough to give the lift it needs. Starts soft, juicy in the middle, and finishes dry and resinous. Great progression.

Overall: This is a proper home run from Tree House. Falling somewhere between Green and Very Green. It retains the signature Green genetics, with a lovely fruity spin, and added drinkability. In my honest opinion, this is a superior IPA to Green, falling just short of the magic of Very Green. An absolute must try.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned on 8/5/20

Pours a totally opaque dark orange body topped with a fluffy two fingers of dense, white foam; very good head retention fades steadily to a thin veil of cap, slight, frothy collar, and well-dispersed, moderately dense splotches of lacing around the glass.

Aroma brings out waxy lychee, savory, seasoned mango, and pumpernickel bread upfront, with an intensely herbal twang interspersed between and hints of ripe strawberry evolving over time; the savory, almost agricole rhum-like fruity qualities here are almost undoubtedly the accurately attributed jackfruit notes.

Taste offers gritty papaya and pumpernickel to open, eventually embracing more tropical notes starting with a silky lime mid-palate; an intense array of grains and tropical oils burst forth on the back end as dank orange zest, pineapple, and raw white grape must lingers.

Mouthfeel shows a medium body against a subdued, milder carbonation; a lightly prickly texture is apparent as a soft yet weighty bitterness encroaches, though remains plush of silky-smooth at the surface along the palate; a resinous, airy finish provides a uniquely fitting close.

With such an intense amalgam of hop notes radiating from this brew, it becomes almost difficult to manage, and remains one of the more eclectic expressions of inherently earthy tropical notes I've encountered in a NEIPA; married with an almost equally unique malty undertone and dense bitterness, it is a consistently approachable display of intense, hoppy depth.

Canned 8/5/20, purchased 8/22 and drunk the next day! A really delicious NE-IPA! Light orange and hazy, with nice tight foam that is retained at a low level for the whole time it takes to drink the beer. Lovely aroma when you crack the can. The taste is outstanding - lots of fruit, a little citrus, nice dankness and a lot of taste that sticks around. Balance is the name of the game here. The mouthfeel is super-smooth and creamy without being too thick or syrupy. Overall, a really nice beer - glad I found a mix-pack that had some Gggreennn!s in it.

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.

M- Smooth, creamy, medium body.

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.
