Beer lover and by no means an expert, so here is my humble opinion. Best. Beer. Ever. This so far has been my favorite beer I have had. Hunt it down and enjoy!

Don't get me wrong, this is a tasty IPA. I like hazy IPA's but this just looks like flat orange juice. I've it had within two weeks of canning on several occasions, and have consistently found it under carbonated. IT has some great citrus and tropical fruit flavors, but I can't really get past the mouthfeel with this beer. It simply doesn't deserve the hype it gets, Tree House has several better IPAs.

I was hoping for a touch more on the nose just based on what I've heard about this beer. So take my rating with a grain of salt. Definitely deserves the hype.

This is a difficult beer to rate. By style guidelines this beer falls on its face for appearance. While not bad to look at, it's a murky orange pour. Can't give it good numbers for that.
Aroma is nice, however, and goes well with the style. Tropical with hints of citrus. Notes of "green" stems. Taste is good, too although the fruits not as salient as in the nose. The feel isn't quite right. A bit light, not much bitterness yet some tannin, probably not from hops. Overall a good beer. Would not trade for it again, nor seek it out. Just not my thing.

Had this out of a growler, day of pour. Amazing rich, hazy, golden color. The smell is subtle and not overpowering, definitely fruity notes. mouth feel is very unique - it is dense with slight effervescent feel. The fruity flavor in this one is very much 'orange' vs. the more grapefruit flavor in the 'Haze' from TH.

Purchased and poured from a growler 5/20/17. First time visiting Tree House - that place smells fargin' amazing inside.

My favorite aspects: the appearance, a near opaque dark orange that almost seems to glow dimly; and the smell - orange, tangerine, orange flavored Fun Dip, and fresh hop. The taste is also incredible, and it leaves a subtle slightly spicy coating on your tongue.

This beer is well worth its rating here, it exceeded my expectations. I can't find any negatives worth mentioning - it could get a little sweet after a couple, but even that wouldn't keep me from drinking it all night long. I look forward to trying some of Julius's stronger variants.
