World-Class
Notes: It had to happen.

Our most beloved beers here at Tree House are soft, well-rounded, and ridiculously hop saturated while balanced by our trademark fluffy mouthfeel.

Very HHHazyyy is our most flavorful double IPA, and yet it remains effortless to drink. It tastes like overripe peach nectar, pulpy orange juice, and the most delicious fruit cocktail ever.

It is all we could ever hope for, and it tastes even better than we imagined that it could. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

4.63/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Canned 12 days ago.

L -- The expected glowing orange haze, with a well-retaining solid white head
S -- Peach puree, mango, papaya, booze, orange blossom, creamy pale malts. Explosive but not crazy expressive
T -- Unlike Very Hazy, which I found almost identical to Haze (when tried blind head-to-head), this one is noticeably more flavorful. Largely follows the nose -- it is very fruity, and also has a bit of a boozy bite on the back end, but not in a way that detracts from the other hop-derived flavors
F -- Smooth, gently creamy, fluffy texture. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Immensely smooth and drinkable for the ABV. Semi-sweet
O -- Yeah, this one isn't just hype... Not sure I'd say it's leaps and bounds over Haze, but it's definitely aggressive in such a curiously gentle way

Picked-up two cans at Tree House Brewery in Charlton for about eleven dollars. My one hundred and forty eighth brew from these guys. I had just gone to TH the week before, but when I saw this drop, I knew what I had to do. Lived up to my imagination, ridiculously good.

4.46/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Canned 03/30/21, it pours cloudy orange color with a foamy 2 finger thick off-white colored head that was packed with bubbles of all sizes, dissipating very slowly and leaving good spotty lacing coating the sides.

Smells of orange peel, lemon zest, grapefruit, yeast, candy sugar, tangerine, wet wheat bread, grass, floral hops or herbs, biscuit and tropical fruit. It had a much softer aroma than I expected and didn't jump out of the tulip glass.

Tastes of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, orange ring candy, peach, lemon/lime, guava, biscuit, lemon, tea leaf, pineapple that is about to go sour, melon, very faint brown sugar, tropical fruit and fresh cut grass. It has an aftertaste like it was dry hopped and brings out different fruity flavors with each sip. Pretty damn smooth for 8.8% ABV, it had a low level of bitterness that made for a nice easy drink.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Can dated 3/30/21 drank on 4/6/21

L - Golden Orange, can’t get much better in this category

S - a bit muted IMO, but improves as the beer warms. Sweet peach

T - TH describes it as overipe peach and I think that hits the nail on the head. Also notes of tropical fruit, but at 9%, definetly can taste the booze on the back end which took a bit away for me

F - Classic Treehouse, Fluffy and soft, moderate carbonation

O - A very good beer that has all the treehouse characteristics, just wish it wasn’t approaching 9%, as I think it comes through a little too much.

4.68/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a can (30Mar2021) into a wine glass

L: pours a great, slightly muted orange yellow, totally opaque with a moderate off-white head (that’s the width of the glass, imagine much larger in a teku etc. Good and dense head with a more aggressive second pour). Some solid moderate lacing left with each sip

S: huge aroma as I pour, just so much fruit. Nose in the glass I get rich tropical fruit notes, creamy orange, peach. There’s a slight sweetness but not overpowering, no real bitterness coming through. There’s a bit of hay? Some slight earthiness, bitterness as well as it’s warmed somewhat. More of the citrus sort, thinking grapefruit

T: follows the nose wonderfully, big and rich fruit notes leading the way. Tons of orange and drippy/overripe peach to open, moves slowly to a mixed tropical fruit note while a slight and welcome bitterness starts to emerge. Label notes fruit cup, and after reading that feel the mango/peach/pear/cherry in syrup mixed fruit flavor. Long finish, that slight grapefruit bitterness carrying through. Not much of that abv coming through

F: shockingly, disturbingly drinkable. Soft, medium+ body, medium carbonation. It’s one of those beers that just goes down so easily, pillowy and smooth

O: not surprisingly, a truly world class beer. The flavor and feel are incredible, nose not far behind. Can’t put it above Very Green (my current goat) but damn this is excellent

4.25/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16oz. can into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Muddy but with a nice fluffy head and great lace. Nose is super aromatic. I get pineapple, candied peach, citrus, and cane sugar. Juicy. Beer opens dank tropical fruit hop presence. I get flavors of pineapple, mango, peach, and lychee. Foamy towards the end with cane sugar, more pineapple, and almost a vanilla creaminess at the finish. Really robust. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Smooth and soft on the palate and goes down prickly and lively. Dry finish. Very drinkable.

This is a fantastic beer and certainly one of the best of the Haze line.

4.89/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

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

S: Tropical fruit and citrus up front with grapefruit leading the way. Peach and melon also at the front

T: Follows the nose. Super dialed in with the tropical fruit and citrus, especially the grapefruit and melon notes. Alcohol slightly warming. Finishes with lingering citrus and melon

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft and pillowy

O: Wow. What little the nose is lacking is made up for and then some with the taste and feel. I wasn’t sure Very Hazy could make it to another level, but this proved me wrong. Everything great about Haze and Very Hazy just super dialed in and amplified. I’m not sure how this is scratching at 9%, but it is. Very dangerous in the drinkability category. A must-try

Pours hazy, orange gold in color with one inch head. Taste is big peach juice and watermelon. Medium body and carbonation, sweet. Wow this is good. This is super dialed in Haze with such a pillowy body. This is why I fell in love with this brewery. The creamy body is as awesome as I have had in a beer. No alcohol burn. Wow just wow. Best new Tree House beer in years.

L - about time. But wait, what about Hhhazeee? Either way, I've been waiting patiently for an amped-up Haze variant since the dawn of time. Meanwhile Julius and Green are getting every variation under the sun (not that I'm complaining). Let's dig into it. Pours a lovely, glowing orb of mesmerizing mango. Solid color thickness that hits the right shade of burnt orange, getting darker as we move closer to its core. Fluffy, pink-hued white head with tightly-knit bubbles, giving it a cream appearance. Dissipates at a moderate pace, but leaves a thin film of lacing that takes equally long itself to melt down the sides of the glass.

S - rich and permeating. Almost warm, much like a liquor might toast your insides, but it's not the booze... it's raw fruit essence. Peach at its core which is fun because it LOOKS like a peach. Mild cereal grains and a tsunami of bubblegum-infused cantaloupe syrup slathered on a ripe mango. Intoxicating aromatics.

T - holy shit. I haven't felt this kind of overwhelming flavor waterfall in a long time. Usually there's a split second as the beer hits your lips that you need to start digesting the flavors, but this hits hard and immediately. It's like my lips have taste buds! Saturated doesn't even begin to describe the tropical... meltdown contained in this glass. Flavor density matches the energy density of a nuclear reactor. Peach radiates throughout as this mango cream milkshake releases a massive juice bomb explosion, delicately balanced by tingling grapefruit rind bitterness. The transition is executed so perfectly that you hardly notice the numbness and sheer hop-soaked after effects until you stop to wonder why you can't feel your mouth. Melon, strawberry, kiwi, banana. Nails those guilty-pleasure fruit smoothies that should happen in your life more often, but you know it's a PITA to keep fresh fruit and they're really not as healthy as you rationalize because in order to make them meaningfully healthy, you gotta add stuff that doesn't taste as good. But fuck it, watermelon is rad. Drink up.

F - gentle creaminess with physics-defying viscosity that is somehow pungently dense, but also airy and light on its feet to keep you coming back for more. Liquid nectar. Sorry-- nectar always is liquid. Let me try that again. Liquid... beer? Ah- fuck

O - getting vibes from all the famous Kings and Very's; this is the epitome of Tree House's IPA efforts so far. Picture King JJJ orangey juiciness plus Very GGG's fruit smoothiness and top it off with that signature grapefruit bite from the Haze line and baby you've got yourself a stew.

This beer tastes perfect to me. Hints of my very favorites, Very Green and Juice Machine. It’s got a crisp taste to the tongue like VG then gets very rounded to the roof and back of mouth. Strong hop that’s utterly smoothed out by the fruit. It’s like they’re flipping levers on all the elements to dial it all into balance. Don’t miss this one.

Very Hazy is one of my favorite beers, so when I saw this beer come up this week I had to make the 2 hour drive to grab the limited 4 pack. Poured the can into a nice broad tulip glass, the color is a dark yellow/light orange hue. Half inch froth which quickly disappeared. The smell is of ripe fruit, no sour tones. The taste and feel is what sets this beer apart. First sip tastes like grapefruit with mango/guava and then a clean slight bitter aftertaste. The feel of this beer is world class, somewhere between cotton candy and warm bread. The taste is soft and fluffy. If you get a chance to grab a can of this beer you will not be disappointed!
