Notes: This is a beer we have tried not to brew for a very long time; it is hard to imagine improving upon Green or Very Green in a way that made it worthwhile. That said, our anniversary season inspires us to do semi-irrational things in the name of curiosity and progress, and for this particular batch of this particular beer, the stars aligned and gave us a truly memorable beer that has its own swagger and individuality. This is a beer that reflects upon the past and energizes us for the future - Juice of the highest order! It has created a palpable buzz here in the brewery. Very GGGreennn - a striking and indelible rendition of Tree House Double IPA - Savor, and enjoy!

4.31/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Very GGGreennn from Treehouse. Received from @Roy_Hobbs in BIF #14. 16 oz can. Stored at home at 40 degrees. Reviewed 20/10/21. Note that I use DD/MM/YY protocol.
Stamped on bottom of can “09/28/21”. Served at 38.8 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter. Final temperature 56.3 degrees.
Appearance – 4.5.
First pour – Straw (SRM 3), hazy.
Body – Straw (SRM 3), opaque. When rear-lite, Pale gold (SRM 4), slight light penetration.
Head – Average (Maximum Five cm, aggressive center pour), floral white, high density, diminishing to a ten to twelve mm crown and a complete cap of equal thickness. Above the cap and crown remains a three-dimensional band of torn curtain lacing. Second pour produces a high-density 1.5 cm cap/crown.
Lacing – Excellent! Multiple bands of tiny to small bubbles, connected by short thin columns.
Aroma – 4.75 – Upon popping the top, orange juice. After a few minutes, the aroma settles into a more generic citrus and tropical hops, no malt, no yeast.
Flavor – 4 – Flavor sort of follows nose, initially pineapple-citrusy rather than orange, shifting to a touch of malt, no yeast, slight bitterness. No ethanol (8.3 % ABV, according to BA, NOT marked on container) taste or aroma. Gastric warming borders on imaginary. No dimethylsulfide or diacetyl.
Palate – 4 – Medium, almost creamy, soft carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 4.5 Overall, quite good, with the nose overshadowing the flavor. To me, it tastes like every other Treehouse IIPA – citrusy based on orange, some other tropical fruits mulled in, and ends with a bit of cooked pineapple flavor.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Completely hazed bright medium golden pour. Massive fluffy white head. Super retention/lacing.

S: Big and juicy. Loads of citrusy hops and tropical fruit.

T.F: Mild sweetness and big time fruit. Loads of mango, tropicals, peach, and stone fruit. Lighter grapefruit, orange, and citrus. Pineapple and floral notes. A bit of spice. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Negligible bitterness. Lots of fruit to finish.

O: A big, hoppy, and beautifully done NEIPA. Loads of flavor... super drinkable... one to snag if you can find it.

Typical opaque hazy looking offering from Treehouse. Green is my least favorite of what I consider the holy trinity of the Julius, Hazy & Green families of beers. I find it less complex, juicy, flavorful and unctuous (in a good way) than the other two. This seems to hold true with Very Gggreennn for me. It’s a very good offering however, a notched improvement over Green and Very Green. Tropical notes of banana, pineapple with some hibiscus and other floral notes. The flavor profile is decidedly dry with bitter hoppy notes which couple with those tropical fruit notes. The bitterness lingers on the finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful (for the style) hazy, opaque, and nearly pulpy brew. Decent head production; good retention; excellent lacing. Body is a shade darker than lemon, close to peach flesh.

Unsurprisingly, the nose is hop-forward. It's very smooth and tropical, like an orange creamsicle with mango and papaya juice, along with just a very slight green herbal edge.

Similar on the palate: this is juicy nearly beyond compare. Melon, mango, papaya; tropical fruit juice in a glass. Just a hint of green herbs and very mild dankness (a four-day-old can may also be a factor in the mildness of the dankness), and touches of lemon and grapefruit, without any citric bite.

Smooth, creamy, still lively; full bodied. Tree House has perhaps perfected the NE IPA mouthfeel and body, and this is a great example.

Like with Very Hazy, Tree House seems to be going for the maximum expression of juicy hop notes - basically, create a fruit beer without adding any fruit. Similar to that beer, it can be a bit one-dimensional, lacking the complexity and depth of my favorite (I)IPAs. Still, there is no questioning its deliciousness or craftsmanship.

16 oz. can. Hazy orange. Smells of tropical fruit, acid fruit, booze. Tastes the same. Tropical fruit, light passion fruit, some chewy pine, which is surprising. Medium body. Good, but tastes like every other hazy IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a pint can into a curvy IPA glass. Fresh as morning dew.

Cloudy dirty yellow color with a thin white cap. Light lacing.

Citrus, fresh cut melon, pineapple, fruit mix. Grassy grains, dank in the form of herbal and botanical notes.

Less like juice and more like a mix of the tropical fruits themselves.

Thick. Well concealed abv. Some hop bite.

As thick and juicy as it is, it transcends the typical neipa juice bomb and elevates the style.

Pours a classic treehouse cloudy yellow orange color with a light white head that fades to a thin layer over the beer and laces nicely down the glass. Smells of sweet cut grass and some citrus and melon notes at the end. Taste is grassier than the citrus/melons but still nice since it is an IPA. Feels a bit crisper than other Treehouses with as always the perfect amount of carbonation. Overall, a great beer,

Can. Hazy dark yellow pour with a white head. Citrus and tropical fruit bouquet. Super well balanced with slightly prickly carbonation. Mildly bitter hops, with heavy citrus notes, blend harmoniously with sturdy caramel malts. Hints of pineapple with maybe just a flutter of vanilla in the finish. Outstanding body and mouthfeel. A world class IPA.

Every bit as good as Very Green. The scrumptious combination of citrus, fruit juice and dankness can all be found here in spades.

This exceptional edition has a heartier body and appears to amp up the hop bitterness.

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

Canned a week ago, tried alongside an equally old can of Juice Machine

L -- Deep amber-orange haze in the glass with 2+ fingers of sudsy white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Lovely retention and lacing. Looks about as perfect as Green and VG
S -- Even compared to Juice Machine, this is super aromatic. Pineapple, mango, passionfruit, yellow peach, nectarine, papaya, dank fusel notes, unripe melon, the whole nine yards
T -- Like with VG, this is a little more balanced in terms of juiciness vs bitterness than many of the other Tree House heavy hitters. You know you're drinking beer, which is nice, while at the same time getting a real onslaught of hop-derived tropical goodness. It's different than the puree-forward Juice Machine, but not necessarily better or worse
F -- Soft, pillowy, creamy... the usual TH descriptors
O -- Might be the pinnacle of the Tree House lineup for me. Price and availability knock it down just a hair, but this is an excellent DIPA

pours thin white head, reduced to medium lacing and thin cap

aromas of pineapple, papaya, mango, grassy, citrus as in orange hints of floral.

Taste is juicy and a hint of spice piney notes.

Mouthfeel is full and juice bomb like. Semi sweet lending to a citrus rind bitterness type of finish.

Overall it's a nicely balanced beer, very easy drinking, no alcohol taste to speak of. I feel it's one of their better ones.

Canned 1/5 drank from fridge on 2/6

Pours a turbid orange with a white head that lingers. Nose is fruit - orange, pineapple, mango, grass/earthiness/mild dank. Taste follows with fruit salad and bitter hops, with dominate tropical fruit (pineapple), and orange/tangerine. Nice bitterness to add some earthiness. Feel is medium of the pallet with nice carb. Overall, great IPA that has excellent NE vibes, but enough hops to balance the beer.

Pours an opaque orange color with a thick, off-white head and tons of thick lacing.

The smell is incredible from several feet away. Loaded with bright orange, mandarin, and grapefruit along with tropical pineapple notes.

The taste is earthy tropical flavors, underripe pineapple, orange zest, with a bitter, floral finish.

The mouthfeel is superb. It's pillowy smooth with low carbonation and a thick body.

Overall, this is amazing, with a great blend of flavors and outstanding feel.

Fragrant on the pour.pineapple, tangerine, orange marmalade, orange blossoms, whiffof grass, whiff of earthiness,

Virtual tasting. Can to tulip.

LOOK: Dark yellow very hazy, big eggshell head. Excellent retention . Thick and juicy Pear juice look like many treehouse.

AROMA: Greenish wood grass mould. Light tropical fruit.

TASTE: salad, guava, grass, mango, papaya, touch of ginger.

FEEL: Very creamy, medium smoothness, medium to full body. Heavy for an IPA.

Best of the TH Green series I've tried so far. The combo of extra malt and dry hopping make this one bolder (than Very Green or GGGreen), and in doing so makes the flavors meld more smoothly.

Well, we have a pretty special TH beer here tonight. Currently the 8th highest rated NEIPA and the 35th highest rated beer of all time. Sure, they have beers that rank higher, but I’m still very excited for this one. This is also the last beer in the Green lineage that I have yet to try

Pours a hazy pale orange with 2 fingers of soapy white head that slowly reduces to a thin cap and leaves minimal lacing

The aroma here is sweet and tropical, bringing forth notes of creamy melon, nectarine, papaya, tart tangerine, soft doughy malt, and dank earthy hops

The taste has a bit more to offer in terms of bitter hops, but it is still tropical and fruity at its core. On the front end of the palate I get resinous piney hops, juicy orange, tart mango, and sweet cantaloupe. The swallow brings notes of chalky malt, pithy grapefruit, papaya, and sweet peach

A medium full body pairs with gentle carbonation to make a very creamy smooth beer. Finishes mostly dry without too much lingering sweetness

Another great NEIPA from Tree House, wonderfully balanced in taste. I’ve had better from them, but this was damn good and I’d certainly seek it out again

Feel...super slick with a very soupy head. These guys are the kings of that. very similar to many of there beers and that is a good thing
Overall...there are others i like more from TH but what the hell does that mean when you are drinking Tree House!!!!...always exceptional to many others

This is the highest rating I believe I've ever given a beer. IMO this is better than Juice machine and KJ. So soft and so mild compared to the overly hoppy stuff they've churning out. No hop burn whatsoever. So rich and delicious. It's like Honey Dew Melon Sorbet in a glass.

L: Chalky-opaque cantaloupe/grapefruit juice hued brew with two fingers of beige froth of average retention and a nice web of lace on the glass.

S: Definitely more green than Green! Mild tropical fruits and melon punctuated by peppercorn, chives, and even a slight smoke.

T: The palate follows the nose with some dank and wet wool notes.

F: A nice bold mouthful. Smooth. A bit on the chewy side of filling.

O: This one was a nice surprise, like the can notes though, I wouldn’t want to drink many in a season. It’s a lot to take on.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. Canned 6/16/20.

Appearance: extremely hazy; practically a chunky level of haze, along with a nice medium-yellow hue. Haze!

Smell: richly dark and dank hop aroma; it's quite herbal and earthy in character. I dig it.

Taste: light and sweet and also somehow dank. Almost like a hop smoothie; if the hop flavors were tropical I'd call it juicy. Maybe hop juice? This beer is definitely very green indeed. There's even a bit of a spicy (not hot; as in the way ginger is spicy) hit at the back of the throat. Great beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess. Not outstanding but quite good.

Overall: I'm just plain enjoying the hell out of this beer. It's like May in a glass.
