Notes: Juli-ish was an inevitability for hot summer days.

Crafted to be everything you love about Julius, but in pale ale form, Juli-ish carries a glowing orange body and a uniquely fluffy appeal.

It carries notes of fresh-squeezed orange juice, sticky mango, and tropical fruit offset by an appropriate and thirst-quenching bitterness.

It's a pale ale nirvana. Enjoy!

Tree House Brewing Co. "Juli-ish"
16 fl. oz. can coded " >> 04/04/2210:05:26". Sampled on 05/13/22

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a cloudy golden-brass-orange colored body beneath a finger's width of off white foam. The aroma is broght and welcoming. It's floral and fruity with notes of orange, grapefruit, mango, and peach. The taste is similar. The malt is basic with what seems like 2-row, wheat, and oats. It remains floral, and a touch piney, although it's definitely resinous. I'm finding notes of orange, mango, nectarine, passionfruit, apple, lemon, and distant grapefruit. A moderate but stiff bitterness runs through it and along with some hop burn it finishes quite dry with some fruit and resin lingering. In the mouth it's medium-light in body but with a fluffy feel due to all of the extra proteins in it. It's gently crisp and a little zesty due to the hop acids. The head held up pretty well and it's left thin, craggy rings of lacing behind with each sip. This is solidly made, and very well balance and rounded. It's not nearly as intense as some of their other beers but it's quite hoppy, satiating, and resfreshing.

16oz can poured into a snifter.

A: Dull brassy golden color with opaque haze. Bubbly white head forms well at a finger and a half in height and sticks around for a while before settling. Thin but clump rings of lacing have some serious sticking power.

S: Pulpy orange juice and peach jump out on the nose. Bursts of juicy tropical fruits like cantaloupe and pineapple too. Green and grassy undertones. Doughy malt base with some confectioners sugar sweetness.

T: Orange juice, peach, and pineapple up front. Tropical esters. Green and grassy with a mild bitterness up front. Touch of oily pine and hemp seed too. Grain base is not nearly as sweet as the nose suggested. It's more crackery with a mild grainy toast. It dries substantially into the finish with a lingering leafy green, pine, and oily flavor. Modest bitterness that builds to the finish too.

M: Medium bodied. Round and mildly creamy with a slight firmness of texture. Some mild gritty hop astringency, but no burn at all. Carbonation lifts and scrubs with a moderately aggressive prickle.

O: Excellent. All the hop flavor of a good hazy IPA, but in a much lighter and drier "pale ale" package that actually has a strong drinkability factor. Lets face it, most NEIPAs are only appealing for a pint or maybe two. Any more than that and it starts to crowd the stomach and weigh you down. This beer fixes that problem. I've seen a chunk of breweries try to market and sell "hazy session IPAs" and the like, but none were executed as well as this. Finally we have a hazy IPA that I can see myself buy by the dozen and session outside on a hot summer day. Is anyone actually surprised that it was Tree House that finally did it well?

16 ounce can in a stemmed wine glass. About 6 weeks since canned.

Murky white washed orange color with a white cap. Good retention and lacing.

Aroma starts as dry malt and evolves into a pleasant fruit blend. Mango, lemon, and melon, oranges too.

Taste follows the nose and brings dry wood.

Medium body, a bit creamy and juicy. Slightly bitter.

Standard issue TH hop offering toned down a bit.

Pours a murky, opaque matte orange color. Thick, pillowy white head forms on the beer, lingers, then slowly dissipates leaving a thin layer of foam on top of the beer. Lots of sticky lacing coats the glass. Aroma on this is lovely. Notes of orange, fresh mango, tropical fruit, some light melon notes and sherbert. This is straight fruit salad on the nose.

The taste bring in those fruit notes - orange, mango, melon, tropical fruits. However its balanced by a lovely moderate bitterness that brings with it notes of dried grass, dried pine, and rind-y notes. Its sweet, but the bitterness kind of acts to counteract it. That being said though, its still a sweet beer, especially for a pale ale. Feel is medium bodied, filling, smooth. Moderate carbonation.

Overall a very nice beer, high quality beer from Tree House. That being said, as a pale ale, I would never reach for this beer. What I like about pale ales is that they are lighter and easier to drink multiples in one sitting - think SNPA. This beer filled me up after one because its heavier and sweeter than most pale ales. Again, its a tasty beer, its got lots of great flavors. its just not what I personally want when I am grabbing a pale ale.

Poured from a can at fridge temp. Pours a gorgeous hazy orange with substantial whitish head. Solid lacing.

Nose is amazing. Orange creamsicle is my first thought. After that comes nice layers of grapefruit peel, mango, pineapple, and a bit of pine. A bit of hay bail and a really nice floral note. Tulips maybe.

Taste: Really interesting. The bitter hop presence is definitely more significant on the taste than on the nose. Still fruity though, with pineapple (maybe slightly unripe) and orange being the dominant ones. A leathery note is definitely there. Resin is strong.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall, a really nice one!

Sweet tropical hoppy, slightly malty, and orange citrus nose on this one! Taste follows with a hoppy and malty, orange-grapefruit citrus bitter finish. This is pretty soft for a pale...and captures being Julius' little brother well. Pretty good!

Pours a hazy deep orange with lots of sticky, soapy lacing.

The smell is loaded with orange, mango, and pineapple.

The taste is bitter, underripe mango, and orange.

The mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a dry finish.

Overall, excellent smell and nice tropical/citrus taste.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a finger of reasonably dense white head. Solid head retention eventually receding to a thin ring & cap. Aroma is a citrusy grapefruit with mango and other tropical notes. Taste is a less intense version of the aroma. Both the citrus and tropical notes are somewhat muted on the tongue. Light bitterness complements the core flavors. Feel is mostly full and creamy. For a 5.2% beer they've managed to coax out a nice flavor profile. Overall, good, but not great.

16oz can served in a Mayflower pint glass. Dated 09/22/21. Received from @WunderLlama in NBS BIF #14.

Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a modest head, a little under a centimeter. Fades to about a millimeter, dense with little pockets of bigger bubbles. Smell is citrus, a little lemon. Mild, simple, but enticing.

Taste is very hop forward. I definitely get some tropical fruit, but I get more of citrus pith and a lot of resin. Moderate pine / fruit skin bitterness.

Mouthfeel is kind of surprisingly thick in a very satisfying way. Overall, this is very nice.

This is good. A little barker browns in here than the usual light straw, but totally hazy, white head nice lacing, looks good. Biscuits, crackers, orange syrup on the nose, dried apricots, sticky honey, bread, flowers. Taste is orange, dank, honeydew melon, with just enough bitterness from the hops to cut all the sweetness to make you want another sip. Perfect mouthfeel, pillowy, but not overly, not so sticky that it finishes clean. wow.
