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.

Oh, yeah...totally worthy of the BA Score 100.
Probably the most unique of the Tree House line-up; I suppose it's because of how the Galaxy hops stand out. I mean, really stand out.
This is one of my friend's favorite Tree House ales...I was always like, "Really?" Well, now I understand.
I don't really sense any citrus or pine aromas or flavors. Instead (and I've really had to focus on this), I taste a very subtle cantaloupe. Seriously.
I'd really like to get pint out of a cask...hint, hint. If I saw such a thing offered at Smith's Billiards, I'd think I died and went to heaven.

Okay so this can of Green was canned on 11/01/2016... no expectations but immense curiosity! Definitely plan on comparing to a fresh can.

So far so good.. the look is beautiful, hazy and golden orange. Not put off at all! ... Yet.

2 for 2... the aroma doesn't smell off in any way, exactly as I'd expect a juicy Tree House IPA to smell.

Okay now it's becoming a little more clear... definitely getting strong citrus notes, and surprisingly strong bitter hoppiness on the palate that kind of hangs around a bit too long. But I'm also getting a good amount of tinniness. It's lost that juiciness, and while the hops are pleasant, it's lost its balance, and the finish just has too much of a metallic presence. Don't get me wrong though, I am very pleasantly surprised at how this has held up.

The body is fine, nice leve of carbonation, slight stickiness. Creamy foam in the pour, heavy lace retention.

Overall this was more of an experiment... however turns out this beer is still very drinkable. Having not had Green before I have nothing to compare to directly, but based on past Treehouse stuff I've had, it really wasn't that bad. Obviously these ratings shouldn't be taken as gospel, and will be updated accordingly once I get my hands on a fresh can! Cheers!

A - opaque yellow-orange-amber color with a milky white head that sticks and leaves great lacing
S - big peach, papaya, orange, citrus pith, passion fruit, little bit of dank garlic onion kind of ganja character, super huge hops
T - again huge peach, orange, tangerine, citrus pith, passion fruit, pineapple, again dank goopy garlic onion ganja in there too. Absolutely amazing.
M - so hoppy and yet so easy drinking, light to medium mouth feel, alc covered completely, aftertaste is still more citrus, papaya, peach, pineapple
O - damn good beer. Those galaxy hops do the trick. Wish I could get beers like this where I live.

Sampling a cold 16 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer pours a very hazy goldenrod color with a fluffy bleached white head of 2 cm that fades gradually to a clingy edge layer and a few wispy islands. This foam sticks around for the sampling and leaves some dense lattice after each sip.
The aroma is apparent immediately on the pour into my glass with a good dose of tropical fruit, some pineapple and a bit of peach, but then some pithy citrus rind as well, moving the nose further on the bitter scale. Hop dominant nose on this beer.
First sip reveals a creamy textured body with mild yet tingly carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking for the physical traits on this one.
Flavor is fairly sweet up front with a lot of fruit notes including pineapple and orange which moves to some rindy pith grapefruit and a little pine sap maybe on the finish. This lingers a bit on the finish with a bit of bitterness, but the sweet fruit also rolls along after the swallow. I dont have a sense of any alcohol on the finish, again making this very drinkable.
Quite a tasty IPA and I can see why there is so much love for this beer. Worth purchasing, especially with how fast they move the lines in Charlton!

can dated 7.27.17 so fresh and so green green

stoked to finally try this and should be in the sweet spot age wise. brilliant pour with thick haze and a nice bright white head, some lacing left behind. pretty aromatic but profile pops even more on palate. the overall theme is ripe fruits, dankity pine and grassy and herbaceous green notes. up front are soft and creamy peaches, over ripe mango, spicy plastic dank, creamy sorbet note, bubblegum, nectarines, melon, grapefruit, doughy malts, mellow pine resin. mouthfeel is medium bodied but pure fluff. what an awesome brew!!

Though told to wait, I drank the day after canning and am confident that this is the perfect beer. It opens with grassy and pine notes along with a little bit of peach before descending into pure juice and finishing with a fruity sticky bitterness. Extremely powerful hop presence so it's not exactly crushable but is still a treat I will happily search for again.

Draft Pour

Turbid pale gold color with white foamy and creamy head. Creamy, full mouth feel but finishes smooth and fresh. Strong fruity and citrusy notes (especially the pineapple and tangerine) that are accented by lingering bitterness.

Tasted from can. Pours a murky yellow with white head. Robust fruity aroma with orange peel, lemon, pineapple. Pretty heavily bitter. Flavors of citrus with some pine and resin on finish. Excellent tasting bitter IPA.

Fresh comes to mind when sipping on this American style IPA. Enjoyed it thoroughly with a great after taste. It was my first beer from Tree house last year and all I can do is try to get my hands on whatever they are currently offering.
