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.

4 pack picked up at the Sandwich location.
Deep orange appearance with a solid couple inches of head.
Taste is very fruity and still balanced with some malty background. Good balance between sweet and bitter.
Orange and orange peel. Some nectarine.
Mouthfeel is medium, not heavy.

TH's NEIPAs ar top tier and found this flagship to be their beast. Juicy with that classic hazy flavor maybe more citrus hint than expected but still very good. Go to the brewery in Sturbridge if u get a chance, quite a venue. BTW - Go early.

Pours a very hazed honey color with a finger of cream colored head. Nice lacing & pretty good head retention

S: Plenty of orange, some peaches, strawberries

T: Plenty of orange, some green melon, peaches, dryness & lime up front, a little lemongrass & a touch of juicy acidity. Tangerine, lime, dryness & kiwi fruit s this beer warms up, just a little bit of grassyness & peach too. Finishes with pomelo, green melon, lime & dryness, plus a kiss of vanilla & pineapple

MF: Medium body, creamy carbonation, great balance

Very citrussy & juicy, maybe not quite as I imagined it to be, but still a big Hell Yeah on this, has all the juice

Canned 4.3.23

Poured at about 40° into a weizen glass

First impression of all the categories put together was a flat out 'wow'

Pours pure gorgeous juice with a nice off white pillowy head. 4.25

Mango and peach forward aroma with some nice hoppy herbals. 4.25

Bright, tropical juicy sweetness and low bitterness full hop backbone. This seriously blew me away, and I enjoy IPAs, but I love this .4.5

Very soft body with low carbo, almost a touch of juicy puckering but the aftertaste was sublime. 4.5

Overall to date the best IPA I've ever had, and I don't think my words have done it justice, so a solid 4.5 will have to do!

Julius has a hazy appearance and juicy, fruity aroma. The beer is brewed with a complex hop profile, featuring notes of orange, mango, and pine. The flavor is equally impressive, with a balance of sweetness and bitterness that makes it incredibly drinkable. Julius is a full-bodied beer that is perfect for hop lovers, and I now understand why this IPA is often sought after by beer enthusiasts. Overall, Julius is an exceptional beer that showcases the brewing skills of Tree House Brewing Company.

16oz can. Stamped on can bottom is 'JULIUS A DAY KEEPS THE DOC AWAY 10/18/22'.
Hazy, deep gold colored body. Two fingers of white head. Leaves big patterns and rings of lacing.
Aroma is hop expression of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and pine resin.
Taste is orange, tangerine, melon, more tart passion fruit, and some mango. Also is super infused with hop resin, which is slightly bitter. Just a little more bitter than sweet. Very good balance of sweet and bitter in the aftertaste.
Soft and slightly thick mouth feel. Minor hop burn. Excellent carbonation.
Very tasty, and very easy to drink because of the mouth feel. IPA hype satisfied.

A nice changeup from some of the sweet NE style IPA's I've had in the past. This has an orange peel, tart unripened tangerine/orange impression....some passion fruit as well..hints of mango....but it's definitely not a sweet bomb of a NE style IPA. Almost has a little splash of grain alcohol on the finish. Medium bodied...Really like the aroma on this..

My first Treehouse beer and my first taste of beer in several months. Overall, it's nice but not what I expected really. I'm glad it's not as sweet or chewy as some neipa I've had. Really appreciate the bitterness. Good ipa with absolutely bonkers aromatics. Not sure I fully understand the hype but it's a good beer for sure.
Canned 17 days before opening

Rich orange/amber color with a colossal and solid head of white foam.
Nose is insane. Leaps out of the glass with huge orange cream aromas (I'm guessing orange Julius is the inspiration for the name, and rightly so). One of the most aromatic beers I've ever had.
Taste is more bitter than I expected. Lots of orange/tangerine and citrus pith/peel. There's a bit of underripe peach and some passion fruit tartness. Not bad for the style, appreciate the bitterness but actually feel it falls a hair short on balancing that with the sweetness/softness I expect from the style.
Feel is nice, not super full.

Poured from a 16oz can into pint glass in October 2022. There was a canned date of 07/06/22 @ 09:45:42 on the bottom of the can. I bought this at the brewery, and drank about 2 months from purchase.

Appearance: Deep gold color with 3-finger white head. It is deep with a very hazy complexion, like many New England IPAs. Head is very thick, and it lasts a few minutes, leaving a small covering. There is a medium amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong aroma of citrus and pine, as well as some hops and pineapple. The citrus and pine aromas dominates the other aromas.

Taste: Bitter taste from the hops with a moderate sweetness like citrus. The sweetness and bitter edge are well-balanced. Has a very nice after-taste that lasts a moderate amount of time. Overall a nice balance and very drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Average alcohol, which matches the 6.8% listed on the can.

This is an excellent New England IPA. It has a nice mix of citrus, hops, and other flavors, which makes it enjoyable. Another outstanding IPA from Tree House, and only second to King Julius. I like the overall balance, and would buy this again.

Pours a hazy orange with an amber core nice two finger white head that laces well.

Aroma is wow huge fruity notes mango, peach , passion fruit, light whiffs of orange citrus bitterness on a sweet malt base.

Taste is surprising some fruity enhanced malt but nothing like the sweet very fruity nose. Nice hop bite citrus, some spicy notes that move to dry zesty finish with lingering hops. I normally like hoppy hazy brews and this one is good, just little weird it so different from the nose. If you love soft fruity hazy IPA's not sure you would enjoy this one.

Mouthfeel is about medium but the zesty carbonation makes it seem lighter. Personally just a touch too much for my tastes.

Overall weird to me the nose and taste seem like two different brews. Glad I got to try this but not sure if I would repurchase it. It just confuses my brain a little , not so much it not being good.

Had this years ago and forgot to rate it. Fortunately a buddy made a run and grabbed 4 of these classics. If treehouse had never developed anything better this would still be a gold standard of the style. Delicious in every way.
