Pours a dark yellow with creamy inch of head. The aroma and taste are are spectacular: mangosteen and passion fruit with a finish of jasmine tea. The body is juicy with a healthy dose of creamy carbonation.

Pours a hazy light amber with one and half finger head which is gone in a couple minutes. Awesome lacing though.

Aroma has massive amounts of Tangerine and mango. A little peach and earth, a hint of yeast and biscuity malt.

Taste has a prominent earthy apricot background over which the brighter hop flavors of orange and mango play. A little sweet tart up front and a present but heavily subdued bitterness on the finish.

Medium to light body though very smooth, crisp carbonation.

Overall the aroma is the greatest part of this beer, which is tough when the flavor just can't quite hit all those notes. It is a very good NEIPA but I believe there are better ones from Tree House.

A: hazy orange juice sticky laced glass with a massive white frothy head at pour

S: orange farm grass citrus rind tangerine fresh ripe mango and grapefruit in force

T: fruit overload. I haven't had this in over a year and this second try is just as surprising as the first. The mango is in abundance, the tangerine flavors are extremely pronounced. For many people, this beer is too much. The sweetness of the beer is overbalanced with whirlpool hops that are not bitter but full of flavor. I am convinced that this beer for the inexperienced might be confused for a cocktail with orange and peach juice. Fuzzy navel anyone?

M: thick with light to moderate carbonation

O: only a person with poor taste would not appreciate this

Canned 2/21/17
Consumed 2/22/17
Poured into a Tulip
Palate Contaminants: None.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange almost amber with a pinky finger's layer of head. Great head retention.

Smell: Oh. My. God. As soon as you crack the can you get hit with a citrus and mango punch, so sweet you may want a Julius in-scent for your home. A real treat for your nostrils!

Taste: You guessed it! Probably the classic North East tropical hop-bomb! Absolutely outstanding, mango, citrus, peach, all up front with the perfect amount of bitter and the finish is so smooth it's almost creamy.

Mouth Feel: Somewhere in the middle of medium and heavy mouth feel that's almost entirely concentrated on the tongue. Heavier than mouth feel than a Focal banger but much lighter than a Crusher, for example.

Overall: If there is such a thing as a perfect beer this would certainly be in the ball park. Everything you want in an East Coast IPA. Unfiltered, Unpasteurized, Sweet, Tangy, Bitter, Smooth. How is it possible? Find it. Drink it.

Julius pours a super hazy dark orange/Amber color with a pinky finger of thin foamy bubbles. The aroma is like the first time I drank a orange Julius, aromas of orange juice, orange sherbet, orange peel, mango, apricot and a green basil bitterness... The taste follows the nose with a orange sherbet/juicy fruit gum flavor followed by apricot, mango and a bunch of other tropical fruits....this beer is so soft and creamy, no one does mouth feels like tree house.... They must be wizards!!!!
