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!

Big thanks to rudzud for hooking me up, canned 6/07/19
Pours a big foamy bubbly semi dense large head that retains forever, good soapy lacing as well, cloudy opaque murky tan-gold color

Nose is everything I could have ever wanted in the style, loads of super juicy tropical fruits, tons of pineapple mostly, but also a strong passion fruit and mango/papaya note, a bit of a doughy base malt and creamy, little citrus and peach

Taste hits right in stride, super juicy with loads of tropical fruits, pineapple passion fruit smoothie like, some citrus and a little pith, orange mango sherbet, papaya and mango juice, a little cantaloupe, with a little doughy creamy base malt, a touch of chalky minerals with the pith, low bitterness and almost no alcohol, plenty of creamy doughy malt to prop up the hops, drying on the finish with tons more tropical fruits and some citrus, a little green like spicy hop as well that likely dropped a bit since it was super fresh and this would probably be even better after another week, light bitterness lingering

Mouth is super lush creamy rich, like a smoothie but without the lactose or protein gritty feel, creamy soft carbonation almost like nitro but without the nitro taste, almost no alcohol

Overall, definitely reminds me of the early days when they were first making new IPAs and changing the entire style of the beer, and I was so excited to go down to Brimfield every Saturday and just fill a few growlers of the new IPA, shoot the shit with the crew. Couldn't wait to try the new beers and gawk at how they got so much juicy fruit without bitterness and over malt characters, this just hearkens back to those days. Thanks for bringing beers like this to the table now and then, and continuing to remind me that even though I'm burnt out on the style, and almost all NEIPAs seem to blend into the same thing, this still somehow stands out and makes me happy again.

“CORBIN! CORBIN! MY MAN I HAVE NO FIRE!”

Opaque golden pour, great hue with soft, creamy head that rises about a half an inch above the body of the beer. As it settles, even layers of lace cling desperately to the inside of the glass.

The nose isn’t overpowering, hitting first with aromas of candied grapefruit, pineapple, and melon. Not overly complex, just a clean, citrusy, and straightforward. A more noticeable booziness as the beer opens up a little.

The Green series from Treehouse is no doubt great, but I’d never picked it out as my favorite offerings from them. This one definitely stands apart. Comparable to a brighter, more citrus-forward Juice Machine, the palate is hit with flavors of pineapple, cantaloupe, stone fruit, and tangerine, with softer notes of lemon, mango and passionfruit.

Medium-bodied, medium-carbed, but very soft going down. Drinks incredibly smooth, with the 8.3%ABV dangerously well-hidden. There is some boozy warmth felt on the tail, but beyond that there’s no indicator that this is closing in on 10%.

Can thanks to Joe P.

One of my final 8 Top 250 beers (list as of 7/15/2020)

L: Pours beautifully with a creamy white head, beer is orangey/yellow

S:Citrus, citrus and more citrus. A bit of bite on the back

T: Smooth and delicious, great tropical fruit on the tongue that gently goes back to a bit of a piney back end.

M: Light upfront but pushes through to a nice presence that lasts

O: Up there with OG Juice Machine as their best IPA, glad to have finally been able to try this one after searching for so long.
