A world of thanks to Brian for this one. Pint can dated 9/19/18 - poured into a tulip at 44f.

Pours a glass of pulpy fresh squeeze orange juice that has been whipped up in a blender. Opaque, shiny, glowing orange, with a finger of foamy head that reduces to a sudsy film and a collar. Looks like juice.

Nose is very ripe mango, ripe pineapple, naval oranges, hint of Meyer lemon, hint of guava, some grapefruit pith. There are some floral notes going on, but the one that's sticking out to me is some well hidden rosemary sprig. A big dose of late-hopped earthy dankness. Greeeen.

Palate shifts to notes of ripe dark berries, mango, some pineapple, subtle white grapefruit, and a very pine resin type bitterness. Lots of aromatic oils and terpenes. Getting a faint touch of that rosemary when the resinous bitter notes come through. Other vague juicy tropical notes round everything out. Finishes moderately bitter, but it's a nice oily bitterness. Very organic. Some complex flavors going on in this one.

Mouthfeel on this has to be a 5, in the world of IPAs. I think this rivals Julius. Thick, creamy, soft, luscious, pillowy, fluffy...the works. The very fine carbonation furthers that whipped feeling this has. It feels whipped, like an orange Julius. Thick and creamy, but also light, and fluid. Phenomenal mouthfeel. It doesn't get better than this. Juicy in the front, and drying in th back. Well done, Tree House.

Overall, my god, this is something. These people can really make a world-class IPA. I think this is going to replace Julius as my number one IPA. This is close to perfection. Top notch. As a side note, I had a super fresh can of Green the other day, and this is nearly as great. I also had a fresh Julius a while back and a 2 month old can of Julius, and it would seem that Tree House hops hold up amazingly well within the 2 month range. Not a lot of IPAs can say that.

A strong pour was needed for a finger sized rocky off white head with average retention and spotty lacing. A cap lasted to the bottom. Labeled can,10/30/18.
Turbid, translucent orange-dark straw color appears yellow-straw in front of light. Bitter, floral and herbal hop flavors (Fresh) greet the nose with pale malt and esters right behind. The taste starts with hop bitterness as malt, yeast and citrus rinds fill in the middle, almost semi-sweet. The finish features bitter hops and tangy citrus, dry and spicy.
Herbal hops return in the aftertaste plus pepper and a slight grassy bite.
Medium/light body and lively carbonation, not quite as rich and creamy as other TH beers.
Even taste profile, on the bitter side yet still kind of fruity. Alcohol is disguised.
NE looks, DIPA the rest of the way.

Had on tap at TH. As hyped... and one of the quintessential NEIPAs. This beer leaps with hop complexity and tasty bitterness.
Citrus and fruit ; important but not overwhelming dank resin.
If I could get this at home I’d always have a sixtel waiting for me when I come home from work. My idea of an excellent every day beer.

This is one of my favorite beers in the world. When I'm sitting at work and thinking about coming home to my beautiful wife, my beautiful house, the dogs and the wood stove, this beer ranks high in the image. Amazing!

The beer pours a pale orange/golden color with a two finger pillowy head that is tenacious. The beer looks thick and creamy. It clings stubbornly to the glass on each sip all the way to the bottom.

The aroma is outstanding. It is a cornucopia of tropical and citrus fruits, yet there is some malt presence holding it all together. It's got tangerine and orange, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, definite melon (very pleasant note), bready and noticeable malt, ever so slightly peppery spice, mango, earthy and a bit of a floral top note. Excellent smelling brew.

The taste follows - it's a lot going on, but nothing in combat. All those tropical and citrus fruit notes are playing well in the sandbox, anchored by the presence of a bread-like malt flavor and a noticeable earthiness. The melon floats in from time to time and adds a refreshing note. It's been a while, but there's what I believe to be a dankness to it similar to hop's cousin... There is just enough bitterness to notice - maybe a touch of a resinous taste. There is also a "kick" to the citrus flavors that are more oil or rind like than the fruit itself. The stronger oily/rind flavors are not overpowering, which would certainly ruin this beer.

The feel did change for me as the beer warmed up. Initially it was soft and full, nice creamy feel, minimal carbonation. After a few sips, it started to feel a bit on the watery side. Not exactly thin, but it started out luxuriously soft and lucious and for me it seemed to fall off just a little bit. No sign of the alcohol, a slight spiciness after the swallow lingers and tingles just a bit.

Overall, this is an excellent beer and probably the best of the NEIPA I have tried. I have experienced the same sensation with mouthfeel with other beers in this style - not sure whether it is supposed to be that way or if it's just me. Regardless, this beer is recommended.
