A standout beer, great taste, feel, smell, and worth drinking every day. Treehouse characteristics through and through...a beer that everyone should try.

A very solid beer from treehouse but in my opinion not quite worth all the hype. Smells great of juicy nectar and looks beautiful hazy orange but the feel leaves some to be desired. Or rather the flavor. The great smell doesn't really translate into the flavor as much as I would have expected, I thought it would smack me in the face with flavor but it was rather subdued. The beer would also be way better if it had more carbonation.

All this said it is another great unique treehouse beer well worth trying. I personally prefer their IIPAs such as haze and doppelganger, but this is still a winner.

This is such a fine beer my review will not do it justice so I will keep it short. Hazy, orange, sticky head, Smells like orange, mango, weed, and pine. The taste is full of weed and citrus with a nice sweetness and a great piney bite. This is a damn fine beer and the people that can get it regularly are lucky.

Big time want here and first beer from Tree House! Cannot make out the canning date (looks like 3/17) but it tasted fresh.

Pours a glowing hazy orange color with one of the nicest heads for an IPA. The head is fluffy and laces itself beautifully around the glass. Some of the nicest lacing I've seen from an IPA. Perfect 5/5 for me there.

Smell is very nice. A grassy dank pine aroma with some sharp citrus mixed in there along with a hint of mango.

Damn this thing is the business! Big time tropical fruits up front especially passionfruit / tangerine and quite a bit of mango. A really nice piney and dank taste it. It is one of the most balanced hoppy beers I've had. They balanced the hop / pine bitterness with the mango perfectly.

Feel is ridiculous. I could drink this thing all day it goes down so smooth. Not much carbonation to speak of but it doesn't drink thin at all.

Overall this is an amazing brew worthy of the hype. It is so balanced and clean in taste that it is truly mind blowing. It reminds me of a hazy and more fruity Pliny.

EDIT - increased the score... There is just something about this beer that is memorable and will never forget how damn delicious this smells. It lacks depth of a traditional IPA, but it's SO damn tasty. I buy into the hype

From a trade, canned 3/29

Pours a hazed rich gold color with a small frothy head. Nose is honestly like candy... TONS of candied mango, pineapple, key lime pie and some honey. VERY bright and juicy. Taste is very malt forward! Malt bill is strong with caramel and even dominates the flavor profile over hops. Hops provide little bite but bursts of tropical fruit and melon. Overall, I was so surprised how malt-forward these Tree House beers are and kind of love that.

1st time trying - out of can dated 3/8 - so just over a month old

a great beer. maybe i need to try a fresher one to appropriately rate it. i really enjoyed it but think there are so many beers of this style now that it tasted rather familiar to me. i guess that's the problem with rating/reviewing high rated beers and is it fair to judge if they live up to the expectation. this one was great but it didn't for me, i was far more blown away by Other Halfs DDH Mylar Bags from a few weeks ago - which tastes very very similar to me. Or LIC Beer Project Higher Burnin - that beer tastes even more "juicy" if i'm forced to use that word...still very glad i tried it, want to try a fresher one, and wish it was easier to come by!

It's still above all the imitators! Despite the haze, there is no powdery sediment flavor. Cans have been consistent and the formula is really something else. I'd maybe like some more bubbles, but it's otherwise flawless.
