Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our cross-continental IPA. Made with Australian and American hops, this citrus heavy IPA opens up in the glass with notes of pineapple, tangerine, and orange rind. It’s sharply bitter and nearly 8% ABV. . . The name comes from the initial batch in which, post boil, the wort looked green from so much hop particulate floating around. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Just really a perfect beer. Great hazy orange color and smooth silky mouthfeel. Huge tropical and citrus notes. It has fresh herb (basil?) character that really makes it stand out. Taste follows pretty much identical to the nose. Perfect in every way.

UPDATED REVIEW: Canned 7/12, consumed 7/17.

A: More than any other beer I’ve ever had, this beer pours like freshly squeezed orange juice. Incredibly turbid and vibrant in the glass. Puffy head of tiny bubbles sticks around for a while, leaving a thick lacing up the glass.

S: Straight up perfectly ripe, sugary sweet citrus fruit. Orange, tangerine, pineapple, peach. Subtle notes of freshly cut herbs. Doughy, sugary white bread. Ripe banana. Bubble gum. Insanely tropical and appetizing.

T: Tropical fruit explosion. Right off the bat, Green hits you with some powerful hop flavors. The Tree House tasting notes are spot on—I definitely get the orange sorbet and pineapple. Some peach and yellow grapefruit as well. It’s initially extremely juicy without much sweetness, which allows you to really hone in on the explosion of flavor. The tropical burst transitions into the typical Tree House sweet bready yeast. Finishes with perfect level of bitterness over herbaceous notes of pine.

M: Unbelievably creamy and drinkable for a 7.5% beer. Tropical fruity flavors coat the mouth before being overtaken by a medium bitterness that accompanies the rich, piney, herbaceous aftertaste.

O: This is my second time having Green, and I can definitively say that it is my favorite IPA (from a list that includes Julius…). The initial tropical burst is perfectly complemented by the soft, doughy mouthfeel that follows. The transition to a substantially bitter, resinous, almost vegetal herby finish is one of the most unique and enjoyable aspects of this beer. I could drink this everyday. Totally deserving of my first 5/5.

Poured from a fresh can into a tulip glass.

Look - Golden, Hazy with a slight orange hue.

Smell - IPA HEAVEN! Citrus with a little tropical fruit and tons of dank pine.

Taste - Hop Nirvana! Tons of fresh citrus, more specifically juicy grapefruit accompanied by bitter piny hops. A true hop lovers IPA, a beer with no restraint very bold and very delicious.

Feel - Nice carbonation, mouth covered with bitter hops leaving my lips smacking for more. Not for the faint of heart. For those that appreciate this style, Green is a World Class beer - my new favorite beer (period).

Overall - World Class. It doesn't get any better for a hop lover - I highly recommend this beer to any/all hop lovers.

16oz can (thanks Darwin!!) poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass

A - Pours completely opaque. Almost looks like blended fruit juice in a glass. Incredible.

S - The best nose on a beer I've ever smelled. Explosive juiciness, grapefruit, oranges, there is an awesome herbaceous note (think fresh cut basil). Bubble gum is there (think Fruit Stripe from the 80s) too. Awesome.

T - Mind blowing. The creamiest IPA I've ever had. The mouth feel is ridiculous. I've never had a beer like this. Crazy citrus, passion fruit. Intense. Oranges, grapefruit peel, orange pith, pineapple. Awesome bitterness middle of the mouth, but that sweet fruit juice comes back on the back end to make it stupid balanced. Dry finish.

O - This is hands down the best IPA I have ever had. For me, it doesn't get better. I need more Tree House beers. This beer blew my mind.

I picked this up at the brewery in a 2L growler
A: Hazy, light orange in color with a thin, white head.
S: Strong notes of melon, papaya, citrus, earthy spiciness and some malty candied fruit sweetness.
T: Similar to nose with a strong taste of melons.
M: Extremely balanced with a mild hop kick combined with malty sweetness. Almost no bitterness or dryness.
O: My favorite beer yet!! I loved this!! It was very much like Julius except instead of using orange it was switched with melons. A++

Holy. Woah. Wow. Unbelievable galaxy flavor being brought on in this beer. Done so well. Everything an IPA should be. I now understand the treehouse hype. Will be trading for more of their beers very soon.
