Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: American IPA

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.

Complete opposite of Julius. Hazy orange color.

This one is earthy and green. A little bit of hop resin. Bitter and sticky.

Medium bodied. Not overly bitter. Ends with a nice amount of stickiness.

When this is fresh, this is spot on. Great stuff.

Poured out of a 16oz can into tulip.

Hazy hazy hazy, yellow orange. More orange than yellow. 1 inch of head.
Lots of tropical fruit and orange notes right off the bat, little bit of pine and earthiness.
Taste follows the smell, but a bit more citrus than tropical. Sweet juicy finish.
Nice medium body with light carbonation. Finishes super smooth.

What a phenomenal beer! First it was Julius, Haze, Alter Ego.. then this. Pours beautiful hazy gold with a nice solid white head. Tropic fruit with prominent mango at the nose with perhaps some light honey, dank grass, and lemon zest in the backdrop. Amazingly balanced. The flavors bang out juicy citrus which I love to discover in any IPA or DIPAs - pineapple, mango, grapefruit, the whole shebang along with some mild bitterness. Additionally, there was that surprise caramel element to it. Very clean beer here and medium to thick mouthfeel which is amazing for the style. Just to show that there is more to the beer industry than Heady or others that just drive us mad into the hype sucking marketing machine. Beautiful beer and one I will definitely seek any day and any time.

Pours a super cloudy almost pineapple juice. Aroma is super juicy citrus. Flavor is citrus with a bit of pine. This is a super juicy IPA. Has a slightly bitter citrus peel aftertaste but really smooth and pleasant. Overall this is an incredible IPA.

Rating it above Alter Ego, but below Julius. Green is another fantastically bright IPA from Tree House. I'm starting to see why people wait for hours in the freezing cold for their beers. Super juicy with plenty of pineapple up front and joy in the back. Cheers!

can picked up today. I opened and poured into a tree house tulip. The first thing that hits is a juicy smell, but when I'm done filling the glass there's an amazing sticky dankness that frankly made me start salivating. There's a cannabis (the good stuff) scent as well. Color is hazy light orange/maple wood color, nice head but not overwhelming. taste is mango papaya goodness with a creamy mouthfeel and piney bitter goodness in the aftertaste. I feel the beer's finish working through my palate, and adding a tingly weed-like awesomeness to my sinuses while my tongue has a luscious coating of green goodness picking up sweet sticky flavors on the finish. It's pretty damn complex and delicious. Wow.

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.

Poured from a can into a teku. Galaxy hops really shine through on this one. Dank mangoes, pineapples and a hint of bitterness on the back-end with the classic Tree House creamy mouthfeel...worth searching out!

Canned 11-24-15
Look: Fluffy head that dissipates and laces my tulip glass. Orange haze, not as orange as Julius.
Smell: Tons of tropical and some hint of weed. So dank!
Taste: A lot like the smell. Juicy mangoes and papayas.
Feel: Slightly high on carbonation, creamy, resiny, chewy, and nice bitterness at the end.
Overall: Great IPA. It's rates pretty close to Julius. Thanks @sims55bfb.

Can. Pours a bright orange color. Peach juice balanced on top of a flashlight. Very illuminated. Aroma is of dozens of different, sweet, mashed fruits. Tropical hop explosion. Wow, this smells nice. Exotic hoppiness. Flavor is exceptional as well. Galaxy hops? Passion fruit, pineapple, nectarine. Mossy hops. Very sweet hops. Lots to talk about. You name a descriptor for hops, you can likely find it here. Not bracingly bitter. Feel is very creamy and agreeable. I'm not sure Green is the best name for this. I expected a piney, grassy, bitter beer. Nope, just another Tree House juice brew. Nice!

First perfect score I've ever given an IPA. I just think it's absolutely flawless from the time you pop it open until the very last drop.

Pours super cloudy, with a beautiful yellowish / orange hue. First aroma is a ton of what I'm guessing is a Mix of Galaxy and Citra (maybe Amarillo too?) followed by that typical Treehouse yeast. First taste explodes over your tastebuds. And it never falls off. Full, refreshing and clean. Perfection.

Watch out, this one will ruin all other IPA's for you.

Last of the Treehouse beers I received via trade. Another very good brew. This pours a cloudy light orange color. Aroma of citrus fruits and pine. Taste mostly follows, but a little more bitter than expected.

Super cloudy tangerine flesh color. Beautiful lacing.
Mild citrus, floral aroma.
Every citrus imaginable....grapefruit, orange, lemon.
Creamy mouthfeel, awesome underlying bitterness.
Another great offering from the East Coast titan. Get it!

what an incredible beer! i never really understood the whole orange juice ipa thing till i tasted this one. looks like a glass of orange juice and has that beautiful fruity citrusy aroma. taste is the same and really just keeps washing over the pallette with waves of hoppiness, but in such a sweet smooth way.

big thanks to @steveb24 for sharing

Another great beer from Tree House.. I'm in the process of finishing off a growler filled fresh last night. It's so good I couldn't wait to share it with my daughter.. Her reaction was "oh wow.. that's great". Love that kid.

Poured 12/1/15 from a 750ml growler that was filled at the brewery on 11/27/15, into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy yellowish gold color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is an excellent combination of strong floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong burst of piney hops bitterness. Then some sweet flavors of fruity citrus and some caramel come in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent IPA to drink for a long time.

This beer is crazy good. The color is like orange juice. The flavors meld together like a 1000 degree kiln.

Amazing citrus profile without tasting any alcohol. Props to the crew at Tree House. Keep it up!

L: this looks like a pulpy grapefruit juice, about 1/3 ruby red and 2/3 white. Held up to the light, this is a divine kiss of inspiration, and I immediately started reciting poetic verse, backwards. I also inexplicably started doing jumping jacks.

S: pretty subdued. Getting a lot of creaminess, orange bouquet, lemon peel. A warm night in Marrakesh, basically. Alternatively see: Jerusalem spring at sunset.

T: this made me seriously question the reality of my existence, sending me into paroxysms of Truman-show-level existential crisis. How can a BEER taste like THIS?! Cold, it tastes like an improved version of grapefruit juice--with the same mouthfeel, but a more harmonious balance between sour and sweet. As it warms I get orange creamsicle, tangerine zest, some pulpy pineapple. Nary a sign of booze.

F: cream.

O: this is tops. I think it trumps Julius. Tree House clearly has a style that is utterly unique, making it hard to compare to any of its other New England ilk. Don't walk, run.

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.

Can. Thanks Darrell! Happy Thanksgiving.

Hazy yellowish peach body with a soapy, white head. Melon, pineapple, tart citrus, floral notes. Cantaloupe and juicy oranges. Hop forward and light bodied. A lovely offering from an outstanding brewery.

by fare one of if not my favorite from the treehouse brewing company. this beer has a very similar base as Julius and Alter Ego but with a more piney and less citrusy taste, in a a great way. the mouthfeel is out of this world and has a creamy and full bodied taste. absolutely one of the best brews made by treehouse.

Daaaaaamn. This is good. Pours an opaque peach orange color. The nose is noticeable once I cracked the can! So fruity with pineapple, oranges, mango and stone fruit! This is what air fresheners need to be! The body is extremely juicy and drinkable. Could go through can after can of this stuff. There is a restrained bitterness in the finish that balances the beer out perfectly. Perfection.

Growler into pint glass.

One inch white head, tight bubbles. Slightly creamy.

Very cloudy/hazy. Looks like i poured a big glass of fruit juice.

Has hints of pineapple. Exotic/tropical fruit scents.
Tastes like pineapple/orange zest, and a bit of grapefruit.

Very good palate feel, medium.. has body.
Surprised by the lacing, very good.

Amazing IPA.
No alcohol in taste whatsoever.

Look - Looks like mango/pineapple juice in the glass. That killer signature TH look. Haze for days!
Smell - The aroma that comes out of the glass is unbelievable! A complete tropical juice bomb. Pineapples, mangos, tangerines, and limes with a slight dankness underneath all those glorious tropical fruits.
Taste - A heavenly hop assault on the palate. Insanely tropical, citrusy, herbaceous with some piney/pithy/rind bitterness on the back end.
Feel - Smooth, creamy and mouth coating. No clue where the 7.6% is.....

Overall - Completely blown away by this one. Ranks up there as one of my favorites....if not my favorite! Was a pleasure drinking this from start...to finish.
