Bursting with 3.5lbs / BBL of pungent American hops, Julius is loaded with notes of passionfruit, mango, and citrus. A soft, pillowy mouthfeel and rounded bitterness makes Julius very, very easy to drink. You’ve been warned.

(Cannette provenant de la source): Une quantité presque inégalée de houblons émanent de ce liquide boueux orangé. Le bouquet est vaste, mangue, fruit de la passion, lichee et agrumes sucrées qui mène vers une amertume presque secondaire tellement l’avant-plan est spectaculaire. Je l’ai bu plusieurs fois et de temps en temps, le diacétyl tente de percer mais sans grand succès.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2016 Draught (growlers) and cans since batch 3 (I believe) back in January of 2014 and onwards, most recently a growler filled on 8/5/16 and drunk 8/6/16.
Julius was never a soupy beer, though its cloudiness/haziness is fairly variable. This most recent batch had a good haziness but nothing intense. Head is large and very well-retained, of white color. The body is a maize-golden with a bright copper-blonde hue.
Citrus in the nose of the orange juice variety (not white grapefruit or intense lemon) but mixing with the base malt to give the distinct juiciness of this "style". Bright, tangy, juicy and with plentiful mango-kiwi-pineapple. Some melon lingers nicely on the finish, with bits of lime and honey. Hugely aromatic, as Tree House beers almost always are, with no flaw/alcohol/resin/punchiness.
Sweeter in the mouth, than many of Tree House’s beers, though not to say too sweet. It’s soft and malty with a tight carbonation, tons of tropical-juicy fruits and an appropriate, balancing bitterness that isn’t aggressive/resinous. As it warms and breathes, I get the same very distinct watermelon/honeydew melon/pommelo or what have you, note that is quite enticing and found in the other Julius variants. Juicy, lush, malty, lightly bitter and exquisitely flavorful and bright. While I think they’ve gone on to produce some more innovative and exciting things since their early days when this beer reigned supreme, it’s still a classic and a beer I’m always VERY happy to drink whenever given the chance.

Thanks Drew. Canned 08/02/16. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a lasting one finger white foamy head. Slow dissipation. Thin white speckled lacing. The aroma proceeds to sweet portions of citrus and tropical fruits while allowing a nice subtle crisp resin fresh backbone (in the malt?), seems like to me that the resin in the malt part?, hmmm, interesting. The flavor brings together the hops and the malts to blend fantastically allowing a burst of juicyiness in the full flavor and sliding into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation seems spot on for the style to allow the bitterness bite down on a great amount of harshness hitting my tongue. Overall, wow, holy crap and a half, New England juicy bitterness bomb, awesome. Definitely would have again.
