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.

pours light yellow, aroma of citrus, taste is also citrus with pine, more complex than I am making it seem. Feels rich, creamy, foamy. Another great New England IPA.

An impressive bubble show creates a meringue-like head layered on top of the cloudy honey colored liquid; excellent retention with plenty of lacing to boot. Smells like a combination of all the tropical fruit juices you have ever smelt.

Tropical juice flavors forward, with mango, papaya, guava, pineapple, lime and orange; stone fruit flavors as well.

Green is perfection. A text book New England IPA.

This beer is magical. Canned on 3/15, it produces a cloudy orange appearance with significant head and plenty of lace from start to finish. It smells like sex on a platter. Pineapple and clean sweat. Imagine making love to Elisha Cuthbert and all you can smell is her hair, and that Victoria's Secret body spray she uses, liberally. This is that smell. Fresh, over ripe and bursting with aroma. Mango lassi in beer form. The taste follows but with different layers of tropical goodness, and that tongue smacking bitterness that you expect and deserve from an IPA. Seared peach skin, orange rind, gentle coriander, grainy cracker, faint pear. All of that. The feel is Hayden Panettiere on the tongue. So smooth, so soft, so gentle. It lays on the tongue just long enough to remind you how good Tree House does what they do best - IPAs. Believe the hype; this company is the upper echelon of IPA. They never fail to disappoint. All scores warranted, all pours are the shit. Larrrrrrrrrrrge.

Very good brew. It's definitely a lighter IPA, but mixed very well, and lives up to the Treehouse standard. I would definitely recommend as this is better than most, but not their best. I agree with the BROS' rating on this one.

Completely unfiltered, cloudy, orange body with a thick, frothy off-white head. Aroma is big of tropical fruits and citrus; grapefruit, mango, juicy citrus. Flavor is more unfiltered hop goodness. Big and juicy with tons of tropical fruits and big juicy citrus. Feel is medium bodied, feels unfiltered, medium carbonation. Really fantastic IPA from Tree House. Really awesome.

Really great Tree House beer here. Poured a hazy gold with excellent hop aromas. Flavor was excellent as well. Hop profiles galore, but subtle as well. Did not overwhelm any of the senses, but rather balanced them all out for a great drinking experience.

I love this beer. Depending on the batch I can swing to Julius or this but as I get older I am starting to switch to Green.

I have reviewed several TH beers already. This beer is like most of other TH beers. Start at a 4.25 on everything and go up from there. Color is like every other IPA from TH. Smell is like a cousin of Sap as it is more "green". The taste can be compared to Sap but has that more earthy back end I like.

Overall just trade, but, hunt down this beer. It's a must try as it is one of the more constant offerings at TH.

Treehouse can do no wrong.
They make the absolute best examples of new england style IPA's

L: Treehouse haze for days, finger, finger and a half of head.

S: tropical fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, even a slight bit of ripe peaches

T: follows the nose perfectly!

F: medium-ish mouthfeel, pillowy, smooth.

O: Treehouse green is one of my all time favorites, and always will be.

16oz can: this one pours a hazy, opaque golden color. There was lots of head and some lacing. Good nose. Lots of citrus, pine and tropical notes. The taste is also very good. Suprisingly not overly bitter with a bit of sweetness. Tropical flavors, malts, touch of biscuit. Really Nice!

Tons of citrus, orange and grapefruit. Not much bitterness. Alcohol is hard to taste. Mouthfeel is about the best it can get, and overall a great beer.

My first TH beer. I am not a fan of IPAs but these guys intrigued me as I heard they are juicy as opposed to bitter and all the acclaim and hullaballoo is well-deserved. Looks thick and hazy like apple juice/cider color. Smells like grapefuit, citrus, and orange peel. Thick silty mouthfeel. Acidity was great as was the citrus juice and none of that west coast Cali bitterness that attacks the throat which is why I do not care for IPAs. This beer opened my eyes to the world of the Juicy East Coast IPA. Excellent beer!

not fond of ultra-cloudy brews but this one, like the Trilliums, is different..... super aromatic and super juicy and flavorful.... without letting the superstar status affect me, this is a VERY good brew....

Poured a hazy orange grapefruit juice color. with a 2 finger head that lasted for a wile that turned into a nice lace. This beer can not be seen through at all. its so thick and pulpy looks just like grapefruit juice.the aroma is out of this world one of the best aromas on a beer I have ever smelled. So much going on I picked up,tropical orange juice,grape fruit juice,rainbow sherbet,a little green onion grassy flavor.the aroma is AMAZING!!!!!!
The taste fell a little short for me, if it followed more along with the aroma it would have been flawless. It was mostly a pure grapefruit juice bomb. at times I forgot I was drinking beer I thought it was juice. There were small amounts of mango and pineapple flavors finishing with a earthy green onion grassy finnish. Overall this beer was fantastic!!!!!!!

Well hello there you green beautiful bastard. Like your orange friend, you make me quite happy. I made a trade a while back that included either you or Dr. J and I feel I would be lost without either of you. Green is a dank, delicious, juicy, treat, that packs just a little bit more punch than Julius, but also drinks like something you could have in the morning with your bacon and eggs.

Poured from the 16oz can dated 02/16/16 into a snifter glass last night, 5 days old. Comes out this beautiful hazy bright gold with some orange hues, nice off white head leaves lacing.

Smell is just dank, wet carpet, tropical fruit, tons of hop juice. Flavor is much sweeter and fruitier than the nose implies. Sweetness right off the bat, decent malt bill provides a slight resistance to the hop onslaught. Notes of pineapple, mango, orange sherbert. Finishes with a ton of hop oil, lingering. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, decent body for an IPA, maybe a bit heavy. Overall one of the better beers I've had, super yummy.

Thanks to knicks19947 for the chance.

Pours like a pulpy juice which looks great but the head and foam are lacking a little bit. Flavor is pulpy grapefruit, juicy with no bitterness. Very well balanced.

Purchased on 17Feb 2016 and imbibed 18Feb2016. Poured from can to Duvel tulip. This was a must visit as it was only 45min out of the way from my trip from Milford, CT to Winooski, VT for Heady Topper.
A: Hazy, almost glowing orange-yellow; completely opaque; thick pure white head overflowing the glass. Beautiful!
S: Peppery, hopped, pineapple and tangerine… very well balanced.
T: The orange really comes through here… beautiful citrusy, sweet hops with a nice, bitter finish.
M: On the thinner side with medium carbonation, but the flavors and aromas just hold on…
O: I got well over a month supply of Heady on the 9hr drive, but will make it a weekly Wed. can run to Tree House based on this beer. In comparison to Heady it is difficult to compare. We almost need a straight hoppy and citrusy, sweet hoppy category with Green being the latter. Heady would slightly edge out Green, but I will wake up craving this one when it is gone

Green is the perfect beer. Waited in line on a Wednesday at the brewery and after making a few line friends I finally made it in. The limit was 6 and I bought them up. Some people were even bringing their non beer drinking friends with them so they could get's that good.
Pours a hazy gold/orange (looks like juice). Smells crazy!!! Like tropical fruit bubblegum/mango and pine, fresh almost to the point of being ridiculous. The taste is explosive and juicy with just the right amount of bitterness. Perfect in every way.

OMG. Lives up to the hype, there is absolutely nothing I would change with this beer. IMHO, slightly edges out Heady Topper, but I may be biased to it's closer location to me.
Canned yesterday (2/16)
L - Perfect cloudy orange/yellow with finger of foam
S - Perfect orange pineapple
T - Perfect balance of citrus and just the right amount of bitterness.
F - Perfect
Edited this review on 20Feb16 because I have been dreaming about this beer. Man oh man, this is the best beer I've had in my life.

I just had my first Julius and Green today. The former was canned 2/3 and the latter 2/2. Like Julius, the body has an opaque haze. This beer has a more pined edge to it than Julius, and the body might be slightly less plush, and the sweetness slightly more crisp. I preferred Green by a slight bit.

Wouldn't change a thing about this beer...such a complete american IPA...perfect cloudy light NE style IPA...smell is orange, pineapple and bubblegum for days...taste is more of the same with a heavy orange/tangerine component...mouthfeel is so chewy...such a crushable beer...a work of art

Just really a perfect beer. Great hazy orange color and smooth silky mouthfeel. Huge tropical and citrus notes. It has fresh herb (basil?) character that really makes it stand out. Taste follows pretty much identical to the nose. Perfect in every way.

Somehow each batch gets better and better. Used to prefer Julius to Green, but no longer. So creamy, balanced bitterness, juicy, typical perfect TH mouthfeel.

Pourd from can into can style glass. Color is a bit lighter than alter ego with thick head.smell is mostly pine and pineapple for me. Taste is mostly nectarine and pineapple. Carbonation is a little strong but without it, itd be syrup. Overall great ipa, not as crushable as alter ego or julius, but does make me want to find a cabin in the woods.
