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.

From a 16oz can, dated 06/20/17... let it grow. Served in a tulip.

Pours a full-on murky, dull yellow grapefruit juice colour with two fingers of super-soft, ivory-coloured suds. Slowly settles to a thick, foamy cap and a thick curtain of bubbly, webby lacing.

Smells weedy, oily, herbaceous and dank.

Tastes like bhang water and lemonade, all greasy and sexy. Herbal tea, pine needles, grapefruit peels and spunked-on blue jeans. Resinous, earthy, oily and dank with a long, lingering, dry, piney and pithy bitterness.

Feel is smooth and creamy, medium-hefty bodied, very well carbonated and drying.

I'm not sure why I haven't rated this before, I've had it several times, but I don't remember it being this utterly masterful in the past. Maybe the least Tree House-like of all the regular line up so hard to say 'better than this' or 'not as good as that' but, sweet merciful Dionysus, it left me with hop oils leaking out the corners of my eyes and a slight erection.

Canned yesterday

A: poured into a tulip to a deep yellowish orange that is hazy as all hell and topped by a dense two finger white head that has good retention and lacing
S: Smells of oily and juicy citrus hop notes with a little tropical fruit and pineapple.
T: Taste is juicy hops with citrus, some herbal notes and tropical fruit with some hints of pineapple. Slight malt sweetness but mostly just fresh and juicy hops. Swallow is more juicy citrus and tropical fruits with some slight lingering herbal bitterness balanced by slight malty sweetness
M: This beer has a moderate mouthfeel with a creamy texture. Decent carbonation is just under prickly. The swallow on the beer is oily and resinous so it coats the mouth well.
O: Overall this is a tasty beer. Definitely different from what I am used to with some very nice and bright hop notes. It seems to represent the style well but I think there are some better IPAs out there. Tree House has a lot of hype behind them but hype is not a flavor note.

2 month old can poured into a tulip glass - a hazy light orange,peach purée. great lacing.
Pine in the nose intense hop smell, citrus fruits pineapple. Tastes juicy and true to the smells. Really hoppy on the palate with medium light carbonation finish smooth moderate bitterness. Crushable

This was one of those beers that I've been lucky enough to sample multiple times in the line at Other Half. Many probably consider this to be the standard for IPA's from this neck of the woods, and it's quite easy to see how! Tasty, smooth, and easy to drink, it's nearly impossible not to like this once the initial hit of the hops and citrus takes hold.

Such a fabulous pour and look to this beer as the beer had an extremely opaque and dank pineapple hue to it with a bit of sediment floating around the bottom. The date was partially hidden on the bottom of the can but this was from this year and smelled and tasted fresh as ever. Loads of citrus, melon, stone fruit, and Mosaic hops in the nose with all of those present in the taste as well. Smooth, juicy, and dank in the aftertaste, this beer slid right now and hid the alcohol well at the same time. Orange cream and stone fruit sweetness kicked in later with *tons* of rings of lacing left on nearly all of my pint glass as I worked my way through this. Has any beer I've ever had looked and tasted this impressive, in equal amounts?

Even with a bit of sediment floating in it, this beer was so beautiful on so many levels. I only felt a mild warming effect once I finished it off and it only added to the allure of the creamy, slick, and smooth mouthfeel of this brew. While not the best IPA that I've ever had, this may be the best of it's kind and the local equivalent of the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Worth it's lofty ratings on here, this may be the best the Tree House has to offer, which is saying a lot given their current portfolio. This was something that I can't ever get enough of!
