Notes: Bursting with 1.6 oz per gallon of American hops, Julius is loaded with notes of passionfruit, mango, and citrus. At 6.8% alcohol, it is refreshing and freakishly drinkable.

Tree House Brewing Co. "Julius"
16 fl. oz. can coded "WARM WEATHER UPON US 05/11/22 07:57:27". Sampled on 05/13/22

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a very cloudy brass-orange body beneath a finger's widht of pillowy off-white foam. The aroma is not as bright as I thought it would be having just sampled a Juli-ish, which is their lower gravity/alcohol version of this. I'm getting some sweetish malt that's grainy but not overly so as I can smell the oats as well. It's fruity with soft orange and peach. The flavor is bright, floral, citrusy, and otherwise fruity. I'm getting orange, mango, melon, peach, passionfruit, and lime. There's some resin to it, and a touch of pine, but not as much as I found in the Juli-ish. I guess the little bit of extra malt here is covering it up. I will say that this is much better balanced and rounded though. It's got a median bitterness that keeps it in check across the palate and then leads to a dry finish. I should also note that I found a lot of "hop bite" in the smaller beer, but not as much here; that made it seem drier than this. There's not a lot of fruit lingering, but there is some, and it's a touch mineralish. Yeah, this is really nicely balanced. I could drink at least 4 of these in a row. How strong is it? Ahh, just 6.8%? Make that 6 in a row. In the mouth it's medium bodied but with a lot of extra proteins that makes it seem fluffier and somewhat fuller. It's gently crisp and then smooth. Based on what I'd heard of this beer I was expecting a true juice bomb that tasted like orange juice but that's not the case, this is so creamy and smooth that it comes across like an orange-creamsicle.

Very juicy. Great aroma, unlike 95% of all beers on the market. Truly a unique treat.

Hazy body, orange and peach toned; huge head, rocky and white; sticky globs of foam cling to the glass. Outstanding citrus smell; orange and tangerine; oats and other cereal grains. Complex and varied flavors; toasted grain; oats; bread crust; citrus pith; bold bitterness with a touch of phenol expression; moderate alcohol note. Heavy body; velvety; alcohol warmth and dryness

I've been curious about this popular and highly rated beer, and I'm glad my curiosity has been satisfied. It certainly earns its reputation for greatness. It exudes eye appeal, an alluring nose; balanced flavors with fine depth, and gently caresses the palate with a soft, warm dryness. A must-try beer.

It was really good, and I rated it accordingly, but nowhere near as good as I have been led to believe.

6 weeks old. Can to pint glass.

Look: Pours a hazy orange with a white foamy head that leaves a bit of retention. No floaters.

Smell: Ripe orange and tangerine. Hints of grapefruit.

Taste: Orange, tangerine, grapefruit and peach. Medium sweetness. Slightly bitter and zesty.

Feel: Full and juicy. Nicely balanced with a zesty punch. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Probably the quintessential Tree House beer with a clear focus on orange citrus fruits. Not overly complex but outstanding in all its qualities. Perfectly executed. Very full and aromatic despite its relatively low ABV of 6.8.

Canned 2/11/22. Pours a dark, murky orange, briefest off-white head with a few islands of foam, spotty lacing. Nose is moderate resinous hop and pine, light citrus juice, and grain. Found that it really needed to warm up before fruitier notes came out - mango, passionfruit, general sticky tropical fruit. Taste is spicy black and white pepper, grapefruit juice and peel, underripe orange, grassy hop, some hop burn. Mouthfeel is full with prickly carbonation, softer as it warms, dry on the finish, and some alcohol heat as well.

16oz canned 12-7-21. Opened 1-15-22. Courtesy of providence.
3 finger white head rising over the rim of the glass, meringue-like. Fantastic retention. Full, sticky lacing. Opaque and orange-gold tint. Fresh citrus, mango, berries in cream in the aroma. Ripe oranges, tart tangerine and a zest-like bitterness over a creamy base. Vibrant fruit flavors. Full body, super-soft creamy mouthfeel with a pleasant bitterness. Long lasting finish with just a touch of sweetness. Top notch, upper echelon NEIPA.

-cloudy OJ colored can pour with a thin white foam cap and a punchy citrus aroma and a flavor of pine, mango, orange and lime. Moderate hop bitterness persists in the finish.
The mouthfeel is pleasantly dry.
This is superb.
