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.

I got ahold of a couple of these from a friend who got them on a very recent trade and they were absolutely terrible. He said the same thing about the two he had...There was something wrong with the beer and I love this style- juicy style IPA. The beer was so flawed I dumped both after a couple of sips. It literally tasted worse than my worst homebrews so there must have been a one off issue with this batch. No legible date stamp on the cans except for a 17'. Hopefully I get to try this one again as it clearly is a great beer, just not the case with the batch I had though.

Funny aftertaste. It may be the Australian Hops.

Terrific citrus notes, but taste is decidedly non-citrus and doesn't measure up to the nose. Bitterness is sharp and lasting, not very pleasant.

This was a draft pour from their new Charlton location.

Appearance: The body is a medium shade of orange and the head is short and creamy textured with an off-white appearance. The head doesn't stand very tall but it has decent retention and lacing.

Aroma: The aroma is very catty with a scent of alcohol.

Taste: Just like the namesake the beer does taste very green. It has a grassy taste with a bit of cut leaves and some aloe flavor. It has a bit of alcohol taste to it.

Mouthfeel: Mild bitterness and a bit of a dry hop bite giving it a touch of roughness at the back of the throat. Otherwise the beer has a smooth character. Drinkability is hampered a bit given the presence of alcohol.

Overall: It's a good beer with a lot of unique flavors, for better or for worse. The flavors are very grassy so I wouldn't recommend it to a person who is looking for something with pine or fruit hop flavors. I probably wouldn't pick it up at Tree House again because it is also a bit rough around the edges, but it is good enough that I would gladly drink one that I already had on hand or one that a friend gave me.

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.

Canned three days prior to tasting.

Hazy and murky apricot colored with a white head that rises up minimally and settles out quickly, leaving lots of legs and lace.

Aroma of citrus and scallion, some tangerine and grapefruit.

Flavors of hops burst out, matching the nose well. Lots of citrus, some scallion, grapefruit and subtle mango, but also solventy, some alcohol vapors mix in. Not overly bitter. A honey malt balance rides beneath.

Full mouthfeel, but a bit slick, finishes tingly. Very good beer, but not sure I'd drive two hours round trip and wait in line another hour.

Canned 18 Nov, received in trade with psweendogg. Thanks, Patrick!

As with all the Tree House beers I've had so far, this is hazy with a dense white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose also has the typical TH character - sweet and messy hop juice on a gritty, hop particulate heavy texture. Aromas of fruit - pineapple, pulpy peach and mango, are present. Malt character is minimal, though a sugary sweetness is present. The palate opens with a blend of sugary sweetness and plenty of hop flavor. Fruity pineapple, pulpy orange juice, pulpy peach juice, pulpy mango juice (you get the idea...) are all present. Sweet on the mid-palate with some honey and simple syrup, this beer finishes with a weird chlorophyll-like astringency that's rather unpleasant. Enjoyable fruity flavors are also present, though. Chewy, pulpy, gritty, this is a little disappointing on the palate. The high level of fine carbonation only amplifies the texture. Messy.

Will rate again- weakest of the TH I've had- chalk it up to a bad batch or tough competition- had Swish right before and Melcher St right after- but honestly didn't hold up well to the other top IPAs I've had recently.
