Looks and smells incredible upon initial pour. More malt than I expected, albeit not much, tons of notes of oranges, orange peel, and mango. My complaint would be that it doesn't kick me in the face with hops and at times seems to be a bit boozy. The can was packaged that day, so perhaps I should have waited a little longer.

This is currently my favorite IPA.

It's juicy and delicious when fresh, and you MUST have it fresh. If you get it in draft, drink it within the first 3 days. Cans will last longer, but still best fresh. It's an amazing beer, with fruity undertones and the perfect amount of happiness.

Poored into a tulip glass, this beer is a very murky orange color with 1 finger head. Instantly I get smells of passion fruit, orange/citrus, and pineapple. It has a thick mouthfeel from wheat malt, but the body is very dry and light allowing the fresh citrus notes to shine through with a subtle sweetness. Overall it is a very juicy IPA with very little bitterness and a world class beer

A: Poured a murky off orange, almost like super concentrated orange juice. Great head retention, 2 fingers, held a bottle cap on top for 5 minutes while I wrote this.

S: This smells like orange juice concentrate. Very citrusy. Like cutting into a lemon, orange or lime. Bubblegum almost.

T: Tastes exactly like the smell. Bready, crackers, biscuit. Oranges throughout the sip and on the exhale.

F: Bubblegum body, Silky, Medium thick body. Alcohol is apparent on the backend. Nicely carbonated

Overall: This is a fantastic IPA. A bit overhyped IMO. At times it can be boozy, which is odd for 6.8%. Displays oranges very well. It's a great IPA, nothing to go and break the bank over though. This will be my last time having one of these I think considering the current trade demand.

L - Hazy dark golden orange color with a thick creamy head and lots of lacing

S - Tropical fruits and a hint of booze

T - Amazing tropical fruit flavor come to the palate with tons of mango and orange flavor followed by a nice bitterness at the back of the tongue to balance the whole beer out

F - Extremely smooth and drinkable, my wife who does not like IPAs loved this beer, it is also very heavy and filling, I could only put down a few of these as it is like a nice sticky tropical treat to enjoy on rare occasions

O - World class beer by a world class brewery, my first treehouse beer and certainly won't be my last as this was just outstanding.

Pours an orange juice color with loads of turbidity aND haze, nice frothy head that lingers around a long time. Aroma is juicy and sweet, peach and juicy fruit. Smooth and creamy on the mouth, more tropical flavor and no lingering bite. Very nice IPA...top notch but nothing insane.

Tasted from can. Amazing single IPA. Probably the best I've had. Aroma is huge orange and mango. Very well balanced. Flavors of orange, passionfruit, mango, slight peach and melon. Very drinkable juicy IPA. Incredible!

Finally got my hands on this beautiful golden joy.

Pours an awesome opaque orange-tinted gold. Nice quarter inch head of frothy white foam. Not much lace retention, if any.

The nose gets a lot of that tropical quality from Julius. Mango, guava, tangerine.. all so nice combined together. Light yet so balanced. So far amazing on all fronts.

Again, you get those tropical mango notes, but with just enough of a mild hop presence to make you question time and time again the 6.8% ABV of this IPA. It is so incredibly drinkable it's insane.

Perfect body, not to thin and not too heavy. A small amount of seltzery carbonation that it's pertinent to making this beer as crisp and refreshing as it is.

Now I always try as hard as I can to not be biased with highly hyped beers. However this beer is not hyped. It's on its pedestal because it deserves to be there. Trade for it, buy it, do whatever you need to do cause this is worth it.

Fresh can from the brewery. Super excited to get this on the random day I was heading to TH. Pours a very hazy pale orange like watered down orange juice. Medium head that has very good retention and tons of lace sticking everywhere. Unlike some murky NE IPAs, this remains bright despite being super hazy. Nose is actually not nearly as big as I expected based on what I'd previously heard. Nice orange zest, some tropical notes, and certainly yeastier than I expected. Taste is a little bolder with durian being the main fruit I get. Plenty of citrus and again that yeasty note. Mouthfeel is really pleasant and soft while still popping on the tongue like citrus pop rocks. Overall, a great beer that didn't quite match the hype but was still a great experience. Delicious burps.

On tap at the brewery. The most unique of the several TH beers I've had so far. Hazy, bitter etc. as all, but midway through it's soft orange funk.
