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.

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.

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.

Great TH mouthfeel. Pineapple and citrus on the palate. Really solid but not even close to my favorite tree house - missing the dank backbone of AE and J.

This is my very first Tree House offering, and it was absolutely amazing. I lucked out and picked up 12 of these and 12 of the Alter Ego. I am hoping that the Alter Ego is as delicious as this was. I look very forward to trying out their other brews. Luckily I am only 60 miles away; an easy shot up to Monson.

Poured from a 4/6 can (exactly one month) into a Balckback Pub snifter. Super golden hazy which I get. Good galaxy aroma. Awesome taste with grapefruit finish. Well balanced! From a DLD trade.

Pours a cloudy peach-colored orange that almost looks green-tinged if you hold it right with a couple fingers of solid, creamy, big-bubbled head that is always there and beautiful sheets of lacing; great retention. (4.5)

Big and pungent earthy hops with light juicy fruit. Orange creamsicle, dank hops, juniper, tart/crisp citrus, and a touch of biscuity malt in the background. (4.5)

The flavor is really layered with a wave of hearty, earthy resin that soon becomes light, tart citrus and juicy mango before dulling to a lingering, green hum of hop essence. (4.5)

Medium bodied with a slight creaminess and prickly light carbonation, extremely drinkable. (4.5)

Wow, this is a great IPA.
A combination of everything that is great in the really juicy Treehouse beers masterfully mixed with the thing I kind of always felt was missing from said beers. Pretty juicy, really resinous. Tropical fruits and citrus are unmistakable, but the real star seems to be the sticky, oily hoppy bitterness that comes through in every part of the beer. Also one of the prettier Treehouse beers I've had.
Really good! (4.75)

I have this one all the time, as I am only 30 minutes from Tree House (lucky me!). Although I am #TeamJulius, Green is not a beer to take lightly. A greater bitterness than Julius makes it a great one-two punch of flagship beers.

Finally got my hands on my first tree house! After all these trades, finally led to Green.

Pour is a beautiful murky golden orange. Very hazy and milky like pour. Small head with great lacing.

Smell is everything you can want in an IPA. Very tropical upfront, tangerines, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, more pineapple,citrus zest, lemon peel, orange.. The list goes on. Very tropical nose and not much malt or bitter presence.

Taste is a burst of what the nose offers, plus more. Insane amount of fruit here with a very subtle hop backbone, very sweet malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is creamy, light carbonation. Almost a dole or orange juice mouthfeel with all the bursts of juices going on.

Amazing beer.. First tree house and does not disappoint. So flavorful, juicy, and tropical.
