This is probably the best IPA that I've ever had. Such drink-ability! The flavor and the aroma are next level. If you enjoy a good IPA, then you have to try this beer.

Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass canned on 12/22/16. Pours a very hazy orange with a 2 plus finger sticky white head that coats the entire glass with lace.

Smell is guava, apricot, passion fruit, mango, papaya, and tangerine with dimensional and exceptional.

Taste follows tropical from to start to finish and that isn't a complaint.

Mouthfeel is a solid medium, enough carbonation, not dry, but juicy as hell, and drinkability is off the charts.

Overall my expectations with one where exceptionally high and it lived up to it. Outstanding beer.

I can't really add much to the other reviews, just a phenomenal beer that I'm glad I finally got to try! Juicy, hazy , hoppy deliciousness, hard to beat this one!

I'm lucky to live a scenic 50-minute backroad drive from Tree House... Julius consistently lives up to its reputation. Pours into a light golden cloud with a thickness that holds down its froth. Aroma is instantly inviting with tropical fruitiness. It's smooth drinking with pulpy mango juice mouthfeel, but with enough hop foundation to give it a little bite on the tongue. A lively finish that leaves you trying to capture each flavorful note. Makes me want to slow down, think, and appreciate how lucky I am to experience it. The lower ABV makes it hard to say "no" to seconds. A beautifully crafted beer.

Spectacular beer.

L: Pure haze. A muted yellow/orange hue. Fair head retention.

S: The same delicious fruit notes I get from most of Tree House's beers. Melon, mango, and orange.

T: This is where it hits the mark. Perfectly sweet with a faint, lingering bitterness. It even tastes of the fruits described above. Not sure how to describe the bitterness other than very light, but leaves you wanting to take another sip.

F: Medium to medium-light body. Delicate and soft. Almost no astringency. Dryness dissipates quickly.

O: I could drink this again, and again, and again... One of the best beers I've had. Absolutely lives up to its hype. Well done, Mr. Lanier.
