Great aroma. Wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Had a fair share of NEIPAs recently and this was one of my top 5 favorites. Wish it was available in PA. Very hard to get

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a very nice hazy yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt note, very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, grapefruit, pineapple), with some very nice diesel like. The taste is very nice hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, grapefruit, pineapple) very nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a very nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very very tasty brew. Addictive! MilkShake! Thanks Bill!

Brewed today!!! Poured into a Tree House pub glass. It looks like orange juice with a thick pillowy head. Aroma is tropical juice. Taste like tropical juice. Feels like a fluffy pillow in my mouth. Good lord Tree House, what have you made and why can't I get it on the regular. The hype is understated!

Snagged Julius and Green at the brewery yesterday. Cracked Julius the same day it was brewed, after 2-3 hours in the fridge to chill. Pouring it into a pint glass I immediately catch the rich aroma of hops and citrus, which is remarkably potent. Once in the glass the beer is completely opaque.

The taste of the beer very closely follows the smell. It is rich, incredibly flavorful, complex and yet smooth as can be. There is hardly any bitterness at all, and after each sip you are left with only the taste of fruity hops. If I have one criticism, it is that Julius lacks the hop intensity of other highly-rated NE IPAs, such as Green or Sip of Sunshine. I enjoy the mouth-filling hop rush of those beers, and you don't quite get that with Julius.

Still, this is one of the best beers I have ever had, and as many readers have said before me, you should drink it any chance you get.

This is my ideal NE IPA. When it's fresh, the nose and look set you up with expectations of a real treat, and the taste doesn't disappoint. Full of Orange flavor, choppy without overpowering bitterness. A great experience.

Not much I can add about this beer that everyone hasn't already said. It's a beautiful hazy orange pour with a bright citrus nose. Now I have the taste a 4 which is well below the norm for this year perhaps but I did so because of the huge flour presence in this particular can. The juice was there but it was just muddled a bit by a flour like for taste. It's a good beer and no doubt my particular was not the standard bearer for what Julius should be looking forward to trying again soon.
