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. Youve been warned.

Thanks to Kevin for this unexpected treasure. Pours like orange juice, severely cloudy orange gold with a nice white froth. Aroma is sweet mango, citrus hops, intense. Taste is a blast of hops, intense citrus and mango. Almost too much, its very five-alive like. Its a little off balance because of the hops. I dont like it as much as I thought I would. Still awesome though.

Pours a hazy orange with thick white head. Aroma is full of bright citrus and tropical fruit notes. Taste is complex, with a mixture of citrus, mango, resin, sweetness, a touch of yeast/bread note, and a medium length citrus finish.

(Cannette provenant de la source): Une quantit presque ingale de houblons manent de ce liquide boueux orang. Le bouquet est vaste, mangue, fruit de la passion, lichee et agrumes sucres qui mne vers une amertume presque secondaire tellement lavant-plan est spectaculaire. Je lai bu plusieurs fois et de temps en temps, le diactyl tente de percer mais sans grand succs.

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 Houses beers, though not to say too sweet. Its soft and malty with a tight carbonation, tons of tropical-juicy fruits and an appropriate, balancing bitterness that isnt 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 theyve gone on to produce some more innovative and exciting things since their early days when this beer reigned supreme, its still a classic and a beer Im always VERY happy to drink whenever given the chance.
