UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 *** BAD TRADER ALERT *** gn0sis only sent me a single 750 of this beer. He should’ve anticipated the profound effect the liquid would have on me and swung a Melchizedek, obviously. Tsk, tsk… I’ll just copy and paste from my texts: "Best IPA I’ve *ever* had in a big way - legit thought I was past the point of being wowed on that level style-wise" … So there you have it. A true masterpiece, Tree House! And thanks a million Eric.

Can from trade. So eager to try this. Pours very orange with a big head. Exotic hops, oranges, citrus, truly a fine IPA, maybe the best I've tried.

New England style IPA fruit bomb. Pours a completely opaque beautiful orange color like a fruit juice. Pillowy head. The nose is unbelievable fruit oranges, mangos, tropical. Mouth feel is somewhat creamy and wonderful. Taste follows the nose then a mid mouth bitterness and a sweet fruit aftertaste. No alcohol on the nose or taste.

Wow..... Thanks Eric for grabbing me this growler. I didn’t expect much but needless to say, I am blown away.
Nose was grapefruit and resin
Poured a peachy amber color with three finger head.. very little lacing. Taste followed the nose, very citric countered by the sweetness of stone fruit. Peach and nectarines produced one of the juiciest IPA’s I have tasted.., resin and pine. This growler reminds me of the beauty societiy and solitude #5 brought to the table.
Simple yet well refined. Can’t wait to try more from this brewery

growler fill. pours a cloudy golden orange with small head. This beer has the best aroma of any beer I have ever had! Strong citrus aroma - mango, citrus, and citrus. A delicious, tropical tasting IPA. My favorite IPA that I have ever had!

Can, from Jay or Mike,drunk Heady Topper style at Mike’s flat. I can’t really judge the appearance but everything else I can.
Dank as hell. Juicy as hell. Some raw onions. Bitterness is absolutely insane. Easily one of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had and this is some compliment. Chewy tangy tropical fruits and starburst sweet-like qualities. I can drink plenty of this. Super clean. Super good. Banging.

Lors de mon plus récent périple à Boston, j’avais comme objectif de mettre le grappin sur une bière de Tree House, mais malheureusement, la brasserie était fermée lors de mon passage. Étant aussi rare qu’on bon gag de Rachid Badouri, j’étais à court de solutions pour en dénicher. Je me suis finalement tourné vers le forum d’échanges de Ratebeer et je suis tombé sur un bon samaritain qui est allé m’en chercher contre quelques DIPA de LTM. Thanks FooFaa!
Alors la Julius, une IPA au visuel marécageux surmontée d’un nuage de mousse tenace dont la dentelle lascive adhère aux parois du verre, est considérée comme une des meilleures au monde dans le style.
Dès l’ouverture de la canette, un déchaînement houblonné perfore les voies nasales d’une bonne rasade de fruits tropicaux, de mangue, de pêche et d’orange sanguine. Un véritable jus de fruits, tout simplement.
Cette sensation juteuse est décuplée en bouche par une texture collante et moelleuse. Toujours aucun support d’une céréale quelconque ou presque. Je goûte du melon d’eau. Du melon au miel même. De l’ananas. Une parade de fruits divers se promènent sur mon palais. C’est incroyable, j’en perds mes mots.
La meilleure IPA bue dans ma vie? J’ai envie de dire oui.

fresh can recieved in a trade shared with a friend. poured a deep hazy orange colour with a white head. looks like a deep orange juice. aroma is just insane. nose is hit with a huge amount of tripical fruits, orange, mango flesh, pineapple, melons, and a hint of freshly pressed citrus in the back. the fruitiness is just insane. such an incredible juicy mouthfeel. wich is just indescribable. so full flavored. such a thick full bodied mouthfeel. hands down the best ipa that i’ve had. incredible stuff!

Pour from a 64 oz counter pressure filled growler into a Treehouse tulip glass. The beer was kegged this morning so an IPA doesn’t get much fresher than this.
A - Unfiltered IPA porn. This beer pours a gorgeous hazy peach/orange body. Super hazy and holding it up to the light just illuminates that perfect color. Three fingers of an off-white head with sticky lacing and long lasting retention. Thick edging sticks around the whole time. I can’t imagine a beer looking any better than this.
S - I had a few pours of this earlier and saved half of it to properly review later. When I reopened the growler I got a release of carbonation and with it a blast of rich and sweet tropical notes. In the glass I get layers of bitter grapefruit, sweet yet under ripe peaches, mango, and a faint touch of biscuits.
T - A rather unique hop profile that really makes itself stand out from other IPA’s. Bitter grapefruit lead into super sweet concentrated peach juice. Its almost tropical, but the level of sweetness really points toward a peach or apricot for me. Finishes with a touch of clean crackers and a quick hit of bitterness. It starts off being very concentrated, juicy, and sweet but it quickly transitions into a very clean and refreshing finish.
M - Medium bodied with a nice level of carbonation. The level of bitterness is just perfect here, quick and intense but fades away pleasantly. Crazy drinkable.
O - For a beer that is being brewed out of a shed in a guys front yard in Central Massachusetts...this is just fucking phenomenal stuff. Totally impressed and left wishing I had purchased many, many more growlers of this. The next Hill Farmstead? Probably not. But I am very lucky to have this place so close to me.

Hazy orange tinged with pink, white lacing; looks like grapefruit juice. Aroma is fresh grapefruit, orange, and mango. Initial sweetness gives way to resin bitterness. Crisp, light-bodied, and refreshing. Clean bitter finish with traces of alcohol presence. Reminiscent of Hill Farmstead IPAs.
