This is a difficult beer to rate. By style guidelines this beer falls on its face for appearance. While not bad to look at, it's a murky orange pour. Can't give it good numbers for that.
Aroma is nice, however, and goes well with the style. Tropical with hints of citrus. Notes of "green" stems. Taste is good, too although the fruits not as salient as in the nose. The feel isn't quite right. A bit light, not much bitterness yet some tannin, probably not from hops. Overall a good beer. Would not trade for it again, nor seek it out. Just not my thing.

Had this out of a growler, day of pour. Amazing rich, hazy, golden color. The smell is subtle and not overpowering, definitely fruity notes. mouth feel is very unique - it is dense with slight effervescent feel. The fruity flavor in this one is very much 'orange' vs. the more grapefruit flavor in the 'Haze' from TH.

Purchased and poured from a growler 5/20/17. First time visiting Tree House - that place smells fargin' amazing inside.

My favorite aspects: the appearance, a near opaque dark orange that almost seems to glow dimly; and the smell - orange, tangerine, orange flavored Fun Dip, and fresh hop. The taste is also incredible, and it leaves a subtle slightly spicy coating on your tongue.

This beer is well worth its rating here, it exceeded my expectations. I can't find any negatives worth mentioning - it could get a little sweet after a couple, but even that wouldn't keep me from drinking it all night long. I look forward to trying some of Julius's stronger variants.

The way Tree House explains this beer is spot on. Truly a great brew.

was gifted this at a bar while geeking out with an awesome woman from MA who was visiting VT - BLESS YOU!!

this is my first time drinking TH - Ive had lots of hyped beers in the past but for some reason the ridiculous expectation on this one far surpasses any other.

can dated 5/11/17 pours out a hazed light golden orange with a creamy bright white head that leaves nice lacing. excellent looking brew!

big aromas bring candied tangerine orange, soft fuzzy peach, ripe mango, earthy dankness, floral and spicy notes, has some doughy malts as well as a gummy and honey like sweetness, smells delicious! On palate is absolutely massive orange flesh, oily grapefruit peel, some pithy lemon/lime notes, creamy nectarines, mango, and that like spicy hop saturation thing, insanely delicious and seriously difficult not to chug. also has doughy malts, passionfruit, herbaceous minty note, an almost sugary sweetness, but its a good thing!! only a touch of pine coming through on the finish, very minimal bitterness. mouthfeel is light but ohhh so creamy, pure fluff.

overall this lived up to the hype - I can understand why folks are standing in line to attain relatively small amounts of this. absolutely delicious!
