Going to start this off by saying I was slightly underwhelmed with all the hype behind Julius and Green, by no means were these bad beers they just have been overhyped and like most things the hype is usually greater than the final product. First off the nose of this was an absolute citrus bomb, tons of orange, grapefruit, orange pith, just citrus fruit. I dont know who had to sell their soul to the devil because I dont understand how treehouse makes their beers have a mouth feel this good. Taste similarly follows the nose but not as juice bomb as I have experienced with some of treehouse or trilliums other beers. Good malt bill but not as much hop bite as I would like. Outstanding beer but I do believe its overhyped.

16oz can, sample from the brewery.

Pours an orangey (completely hazed over) hued, can was acquired fresh from the brewery and was in the beer fridge for 10 days. This hazed look is not to be compared with "milkshake" beers IMO though fresh from the brewery or cans that are decanted all of the way will make it look even more hazed. A lot of the haze is chillhaze though who wants to drinking this beer warm? Head retention is great. Fresh juicy orange zest & tropical fruit nose, the aroma is nothing short of epic. Smooth and very crisp, lush semi-creamy medium body. Hop bitterness is a piney, hop flavor is juicy an all with suggestions of guava, ripe honeydew, dragonfruit, & cumquats.

Way too much fun quaffing this back ... everyone should hunt this beer down.

A- My second 750ml of this throughout the last week. Poured into two snifters with a slightly hazed apricot amber body. The head is white and foamy, frothy textured rising to about one finger. Decent retention and lacing is a mix of webs, sheets and spots.

S- A lot of melon and juicy cantaloupe bursts out of the growler as soon as it is opened. After some inspection a bushel of juicy tropical and stone fruits rises out of the glass. Mango, tangerine, peach and some citrus as well.

T- Becomes a bit more citrus forward here with a notable zesty bitterness coming to mind. Orange is quite big with a bit of lemon zest in there as well. The fruits from the nose carry over with mango, melon, cantaloupe, peach, apricot and general tropical fruits coating the palate.

MF- Medium bodied with a slightly creamy and frothy consistency. Carbonation still at a high level after a week in the growler. Finishes moderately bitter.

Very juicy fruity in the nose as well as the flavor but in the latter a nice bitter citrus zest hop feel opens up. Certainly a great "flagship" or staple of a brewery. I have had this a few times now and it seems to just get better and better.

Pours dark yellow / golden, very hazy with small white head.
Aroma has tropical fruits, peaches, mango, lots of hops, wet malt.
Taste is very fruity, some malt, very bitter hoppy finish, smooth. Not as good as alter ego.
