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.

Very solid beer. Alittle underwhelmed because if the hype surrounding this one. Definitely glad I was able to try it and see what all the fuss was about.

Two finger head that clings to the glass pooling into a halo and collecting into a few islands of foam. Aromas of sweet ripe mango and fresh cut pine. Mango purée and an undercurrent of hop resins swirl into a perfect luxeroulsy soft finish. Words aren't sufficient for this beverage. Hall of fame beer.
