From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Tree House Bright w/ Citra

This is a 7.8% DPIA It Citra! It is made with a simple malt bill and
fermented with clean American Ale yeast which is to say that the
Citra hops are the stars.  The taste follows the nose with loads of   
pineapple, mango, tangerine,mild pine, and orange. The finish is
gentle with a light bitterness.  An amazing beer.  If you like Citra
as I do, this is one beer you should go out of your way to get.  

Overall Rating: Excellent-
Tree House Julius

This 6.8% ABV American IPA bursts with hops from beginning to
end.  It opens with smells of citrus, mango, pineapple, passion fruit
and oragne.  Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.  Taste features
notes of peach, orange, mango, lemon zest, grapefruit,  and other
citrus.  Worth of its reputation as one of the top American IPAs.

Overall: Outstanding+
Having sampled over 7,000 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Sixpoint Farm to Pint

This American IPA (7.8 % ABV) that is
unique in that Sixpoint, the hops come
directly from the farm to the brewery. Its
nose brings herbal hops,sweet pine and
citrus peel.  Taste has flavors of biscuit, mild
grapefruit, candy orange, light pine, floral,
and other herbaceous notes.  Very easy to
drink despite its ABV.  Interesting and
complex for this style.
