Can dated 07/12/16.
Pours opaque and cloudy pale orange with a thick khaki head that remains as wisps on top and leaves thick strands of lace. The smell is of bitter grapefruit juice with hints of tropical fruit and pine. The taste follows with a full texture and medium carbonation. Aggressively hopped and bitter up front and settles to a refreshing citrus bomb.

1 PINT can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours murky like pineapple juice, but a shade darker. It is topped with three inches of off white head that leaves behind some nice lacing.

I get some pineapple and pine aroma.

It starts out with some pineapple and tropical fruit. Pine comes in the middle and in the finish.

Medium to full mouthfeel for an IPA.

My first Tree House beer. It reminds me of Hoof Hearted's Roller Blabe. It is good, but it does not match the hype for my palate. I am grateful to have tried it by the generosity of a fellow beer enthusiast. I need to do more research of this brewery.

Hazy fruit bomb! Small tan head, so much tropical fruit, pineapple, mango.
A big mouthfull, taste is pure fruit juice thought the taste is not as strong as the aroma. Strong pineapple in the taste

From can into chalice.

Turbid deep yellow/light orange haze appearance with pillowy white foam. Smell is tropical with just a faint hint of pine. But, mostly pineapple, tangerine and other exotic fruits really deliver on the flavor with the noticeable Galaxy hops. Creamy mouthfeel and very easy to drink.

Yet another phenomenal beer from Tree House. As far as IPAs overall, it's between this and Julius (which has a distinctly different taste and aroma).

Thanks to my dude A.B. for bringing this back from Mass! Looks like a milkshake, super cloudy. I think it looks cool. Smell: Whoa! It smells like you're opening up a can of dole cut pineapples. Nice hop aromas around the edges of the fruit-splosion. Just smells super fruity. Crazy. Taste is a really nice mix of pineapple, papaya, nice very slightly sweet malt, enriching and balanced hops. Feel is very nice, rich, smooth, perfect carbonation. Overall: A must-have!

Pours like turbid grapefruit juice with a dense foamy head. As the beer is consumed the head leaves bands of sticky lacing. There is a lot of pineapple and other citrus fruits in the nose. Perhaps a bit of melon and some pine as well. The taste is pineapple, a bit of sweetness and a spectacular bitter hop finish. This beer is medium bodied and creamy. This is a truly balanced and delicious beer with a great mouthfeel.

Smell is mango, pineapple, a hint of passionfruit, and a hint of tangerine. Taste was heavy pineapple juice, mango, juicy citrus, and a nice hop bitterness. Liked this one better than Julius.

Another excellent beer from Monson. Heavy melon notes, pineapple, less citrus. Awesome mouthfeel. This one had eluded me for a while, but got a fresh 750 bottled this past week that I was more than happy to share.

Canned last week, poured into a tree house tulip.

Looks like a hazy juice bomb. Some lacing, but it sticks.

Smells like tangerine or oranges, but lighter on the fruit than their normal beers. More hops on the nose.

Taste is amazing. It's hopped up for sure. Nice bright fruit, balanced, and juicy.

Mouth feel is medium bodied with a smooth Finish.

Overall. Love it. They don't disappoint. This brew was juicy with hops, and a nice finish. Wish I had more but I only got one of these.

Looks like all their other beers: cloudy and yellow-orange. It smells great, but tastes unbalanced. I thought it was too cold, so let it warm a bit. No, still out of balance. Mouthfeel is like their other beers too: thick and the flavor lingers. Overall, not their best beer.

HOWEVER: I had one that was a bit over a month old (5-6 weeks, I think) and it was much better. This beer needs to sit a bit to balance out.

Appearance is pulpy OJ with a large, foamy, bulbously lopsided eggshell colored head that leaves thin, sporadic lace.

Smell is pineapple, bright green freshly cut Christmas tree, orange, white pepper, and kiwi. It sounds like a strongly vibrant nose, but I think in this brew the aromas are subdued a touch, not sure why.

Sweet vanilla, peach, orange, with a lot of same yeast spiciness found in some Hoof Hearted beers Ohio locals tend to complain about when ultra fresh. There is also a bitter but bright element, like lemon rind.

This is a super soft beer, like bubblegum juice, and it goes down all too quickly.

Received a Green 16 oz pounder in a trade along with some other great beers from Tree House and Trillium. Did comparison with Green, Alter Ego, Bright w/ Nelson and Artaic. Green won. Pours a beautiful hazy golden with orange hint and fruity aroma and flavor. Delicious!

My dad showed up today. He's on a modified car raceteam. Travels around NewEngland. He brought me this little gem. 16oz.can with a coozy!!.
He told me, the line of people waiting for canned take home pours was long.
Galaxy hops, man o man. Righteous hop. Herbal, dry earth, sweet fruity layers in both aroma and flavor. Reminds me very much of the mega complex Heady Topper. Seriously, the layers of flavor just keeps riding in.
Seriously enjoyable quoff. Easier on the pallet, but Still, each gulp held something new. The hop/malt balance being in the Heady topper region.
Balance is amazing and the drinkability is very high.
I had never heard of this brewery until today. Sweet surprise.

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.

Another insane beer from the best. Pours a rich yellow cloud and pineapple on the nose. The first sip is the sweet pineapple with a hint of orange. Next the orange blend into a tangerine and the barely carbonated body just sits on your tongue. Like drinking a sweet orange juice. Finish stays strong and beautiful. You have no idea you're drinking almost 8%. Definitely top 20 all time brews.

16oz can, stamped 06.29.2016, poured into a Treehouse Teku glass.

The beer pours an expectedly turbid, cloudy and hazy golden color, orange hues with a foamy, thick, taut white head that has very good retention and yields incredible soapy lace. The aroma is very nice, citrusy, juicy with assertive bitter rind, pineapple, hop spice, resinous pine, very earthy with lots of grassiness and some light wildflower. The typical New England yeasty sweetness and light maltiness is totally an afterthought here, pure hoppiness. The flavors are amazing, really powerful tropical fruits, pineapple galore, tangerine and grapefruit juice leads to intensely bitter grapefruit peel and earthy pine sap, grassiness and wildflower again make up the finish with a really nice lingering hop spice flavor with just a touch of mineral water. The mouthfeel is fantastic, full bodied, coating, moderate carbonation, smooth and gentle with a punishingly dry and bitter kick.


Verdict: An absolute gem of an IPA from Treehouse. Certainly one of the more bitter IPAs I've had in a long time, but it has so much flavor that is really complimented by the bitter qualities. This beer certainly lives up to the Treehouse hype, a stunner.

Pours hazy, orange-gold in color with one inch head. Taste is lime, orange rind, and pineapple. Flavors are more subtle than the other Tree House brews I have had. Medium bodied, slightly bitter, and juicy. Heads and tails above most beers I have had, but behind Julius and Haze in my Tree House order. Worth seeking out and an amazing IPA. Really beginning to realize in my world, IPAs are like rauchbiers. There is one brewery that is heads and tails above the others and Tree House is in a class by itself.

Treehouse is a very hyped up brewery and since they're only 45 minutes away, I mad it a point to check out some of their brews. Green was recommended to me I think galaxy hops are the stuff of legends when brewed right. I heard green was one of the best beers Treehouse makes, and that leaves me a little worried. It a good beer no doubt, but its not what its cracked up to be. I taste lots of peaches and a general IPA kind of taste. Overall, its a good beer, but not worth the hype.

Peace~

Can dated June 15, obtained in MBC dinner line beer trade. Thanks George RR Martin looking guy! (that's a compliment of course) Shared and poured into ale glass.

L: 1F head, hazy straw, very pineapple juice looking thin ring

S: Pineapple and citrus all the way, light cracker malt

T: Pineapple, orange, mango, light cracker malt.

M: Light to medium body, light to medium carbonation. Well constructed and balanced. Long slightly bitter finish.

O: My first TH. Very good but I am not blown away. I know, I know, it is supposed to be a religious experience or something. It's very good. I was dead exhausted Saturday night and this was after sampling two other beers, so if I get another can and the experience is different, I will update.

I've been lucky enough to have a few other tree house beers, and in my opinion, this one was my least favorite. It starts off impressive enough with great tropical fruit smells, but the bitterness actually takes over my taste buds, giving it a rather unpleasant finish.

This beer pours a very cloudy dark golden orange, very murky The head is big, fluffy and creamy white. Retention is excellent and there are sticky, hanging rings of lacing all over the glass. Smell is pineapple, tangerine, mango and citrus pith. Taste is similar with a moderately bitter finish. Feel is medium and so so soft. Legit almost delicate, until the bitter slightly resinous finish. Overall another world class beer by Treehouse. I have it ranked slightly below the other offerings I've had from them, but it is still spectacular.

16oz can: 6/15/16 "HERE COMES DAT BOI"

Best of the bunch. Really outshined the others I had tonight including Haze, Julius, and Jjjuliusss. It won't be the only TH beer that I look for in the future, but it will probably have to be part of every TH trade going forward.

Poured from a can aged six days. Cloudy orange color with white head. Tropical fruit smell. Tastes of mango, orange. Starts sweet and finishes with mild bitter. Great IPA, less sweet and more bitter taste than Julius, a great alternative. Great mouthfeel, good amount of carbonation. This is a great beer with typical tree house flavor.

Look: very hazy, kinda reminds me of pulp free orange juice. About half an inch of head
Spell: very light and citrus
Taste: you get a full citrus blast, pineapple, orange and grape fruit? The taste doesn't diminish at all, perfectly balanced
Feel: light and airy, no nasty after taste, it's extremely crisp and clean.
Overall: this is the single best IPA I've ever had.... well worth the drive to the middle of nowhere.
