Pours dark yellow / golden, very hazy with small white head.
Aroma has tropical fruits, peaches, mango, lots of hops, wet malt.
Taste is very fruity, some malt, very bitter hoppy finish, smooth. Not as good as alter ego.

I truly owe my friend Joe for this and all the other TH he picked up for me.

Joe, this review is etched for your memory and prestige.

I have heard everything people have to say about this and am thrilled to finally see it before me. I'm planning on just seeing if the hype is real here at the very very least.

Pours opaque orange-yellow and with a strong white head. Decent lacing as well which is hardly surprising.

A predominantly tropical nose. It isn't as fragrant as you would expect, but it is still easy to tell that this beer is going to be heavily tropical and awesome.

I get a crazy vibrant tropical fruitiness here. Super ripe mango, tangerine, passion fruit, peaches, sweet grapefruit, oranges, citrus peels of numerous kinds. It is so harmonic, with a bunch of seemingly similar flavors but still distinctive with a ton of them. Hop flavor just rolls over your palette, in the drinking and the aftertaste, in oceanic waves of hoppiness.

The mouthfeel here is smooth and pillowy, but the hops are fierce and roil the tongue. It isn't just a taste. It really is an experience. And my goodness is it one to love...

The hype, as cliche as it is, is very real. This is an IPA that isn't larger than life, but exactly the size of it. It reaches new heights of flavor while also crossing into territory that is approaching a new level of refinement. Hats off to TH yet again.

juice bombs are the diet coke of ipa's. these recipes are prophylactics for wimps who can't handle well-balanced beers. we've gone through the dark ages, the enlightenment, and prohibition only to arrive at a time in history where modern beer drinkers "desire" a flat, inoffensive, product. i get that you don't want to feel like you're consuming alcohol. try wine coolers. that's why they exist. congrats on following trends but a plague on your limp originality.

Pours nicely, decent head, body was a plain. The aroma is quite good. The beer starts with a nice refreshing taste but didn't finish very well. Overall I think it's a bit over rated. I went to Tree House to buy only Julius but purchased some Bright with Citra also and am so happy I did. That beer is really special!
