COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Youíve been warned.

Big thanks to Deuane for cracking this growler open at Campground Brewdown.

A - Pours hazy peach orange with a beautiful one and a half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a thin white film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of freshly zested tropical fruit, a whole field worth of fresh cut grass, sticky pine resin and some mild caramel sweetness. The hops are so strong but not totally over the top.

T - Starts off much more balanced than the nose. The piney, grassy, tropical fruit hop punch is there in spades but the slightly sweet caramel malt is there to hold it in check for the most part. The finish is nearly identical but the bitterness does eventually win out, leaving the palate quite dry.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel with plenty of dryness backing it up. The hops meld amazingly well with the base grain.

O - One of the better IPAís I have had in recent memory. The hops are intense and yet they donít destroy the palate. Now that I have friends in the area I am really looking forward to visiting them in the near future to try all these beers on-tap.

egajdzis (5510) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Poured a hazy orange color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, light tropical fruits, some pine, grass, and a bit of toast. Taste of citrus, light pine, orange, tropical fruits, and lightly bitter, hop finish.

Damico (2790) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours hazy unclear thick syrupy orange with a beige head. Aroma brings zesty and sweet orange like hops soft and pleasant in the nose. This beautiful brew sits in the mouth like mango and every orange tropical fruit juice you have ever tasted! Absolute IPA magic in the mouth on the full body, so juicy and ending with a nice citrus dryness.

jercraigs (8294) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
2014-08-16. Hazy bright orange body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma of light musky hops, lemon, sweetish malt core. 6++ Flavour is mildly bitter throughout, lemon and citrus melange is muddled but enjoyable. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent but I didnít love it as much as others seemed to. Growler at Campground Brewdown

Another damn tasty Vermont IPA from Matt. This is full of orange. Like an IPA mimosa.

Thanks, jlindros. The beer is bright orangey gold in color. Itís quite hazy, which I rather like for an IPA.. Not that I really dislike clear IPAs. Eh. The head is white and fairly vigorous for a growler pour. Lots of lacing. Good retention. Even after a few minutes and many sips, thereís still a solid coating of bubbles on top. The aroma is massively juicy and full of hop flavor. Citrus for days. I remember reading BuckeyeNation use the term "electric tangerine" in a review; that would be a very apt descriptor for this beer. It smells like tangerine juice with a healthy shot of lime. Thereís also pineapple, kiwi, raspberry, grapefruit and pine. Itís like a wonderful citrus drink spiked with a tropical fruit background. Mouthwatering stuff. Little malt presence, which is just fine with me. Taste is similarly big on juicy hop flavors. Pale malt sweetness is well in the background. Tangerine, grapefruit and lime hoppiness dominates with tropical fruits providing highlights. Moderate bitterness. Fairly dry. Tangerine rind finish. Extremely easy to drink. Light, pleasant feel. Seems like normal carbonation. Some hop oiliness. Each sip makes me want more. I feel a bit bad not sharing this growler, but Iím also glad that I didnít. This is a fantastic IPA, fully deserving its acclaim. Tree House continues to impress.

reggiedunlop (3405) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours a clear orange/gold with a medium white head. Aroma has lots of orangey rindy notes. Flavor follows suit...lots of orange but more rindy than juicy. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is dry and rindy and slightly resinous.

In trade, thanks! Pours hazy rich orange. Smell is orange, mango and fruity. Taste is fruity, hoppy but very, very light bitterness I thought. Very fresh, light and refreshing bitterness and tons of hop flavor. Fantastically drinkable and light feeling. Just the kind of IPA I like with lots of hop flavor, low bitterness and a full but not syrupy feel or heaviness. Clean, and refreshing.

Leighton (13405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Growler shared with the fellas at HamTech Reunion 2014 - Clinton, NY. Pours hazy gold with a white foam top. Rich fruits abound with lots of the tropical stuff, melon, tangerine and orange. Not too bitter, fairly sweet. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Juicy and rich but still well rounded. Really juicy on the finish with some honey, pale bread, lots more melon and tasty citrus. Just loads of expressive fruit character in here. Wonderful.
