Julius pours a cloudy, hazy orange. On the nose, I picked up pine and tropical citrus fruits. The taste is very citrus and orange juice forward with a bit of the traditional IPA hop bite up front but it slowly gives way to the JPA juice. This is a very complex beer with both citrus fruit and some pine resin working together.

A juicy orange offering. Served in a special tree house glass. A cloudy orange without much of a head. I think I hyped this up a bit, but it was still awesome. Interested to see how this tastes from the can.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass (1 month old). Appearance is opaque and yellow/orange/mango in color with two finger thick white head (fairly good retention). Smell is beautiful orange pulp/juice with a nice presence of slightly bitter orange pith. There is a hint of earthy hops/spruce and resin as well.

Taste follows the nose with orange hop flavors most prevalent. There is a little more resiny sweetness than in the aroma, but it is still on the drier side. There is some noticeable bitterness, but it is so well done balancing out the other flavors. Mouthfeel is an almost perfect medium to full body, smooth and creamy up front, with a nice crisp bite on the finish. However, it is still juicy all the way through. There is a small tingling sensation from the carbonation that makes this IPA extremely drinkable without taking away from the body.

Overall, this is another world class IPA from Treehouse. It has the classic juice, haze and mouthfeel that embodies their house yeast. This is a nice complement to Haze that may not be as complex, but presents great bitter orange juice/pulp flavors. There is some resin sweetness that balances everything out making this an overall excellent beer.

Never thought a beer could get as juicy as this. Like all TH, resembles OJ in a glass. Smells of citrus and tropical fruit, with fluffy soft mouthfeel. Superb palate-coating dankness to this one, with a hint of breadiness on the back end. This beer is unreal, best rated IPA on earth for a reason.
