Default Treehouse Brewing Julius Clone

Treehouse Brewing Co. is a tiny brewery out in MA, very similar the great Hill Farmstead in VT. See website: http://treehousebrew.com

They currently brew the #3 IPA in America, called Julius, according to Beer Advocate: http://beeradvocate.com/lists/style/116.

I absolutely love this beer, it's full of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, and LOTS of citrus flavors. I've asked the brewers for some hints on the recipe, especially since they claim it's made with only American hops, but to no avail. They are pretty tight lipped on this recipe I guess.

Anyone have this beer and have any ideas of ingredients for a recipe? Not sure where to even start, I'm thinking maybe citra, centennial, summit for hops? I don't get any cat pee or onion/garlic though and the citrus tastes just like tangerine or orange.

Any thoughts? I'd like to get a clone recipe started.

Here is what I've found so far (per old website blog posts):

Specs:
American IPA
6.5-6.8% ABV
72.4 IBUs
5-7 SRM

Hops:
All Citra hops
Bittering charge but mainly hop bursted
8 oz total (1.6oz/gallon)

Grain:
Flaked Oats for creamy mouthfeel?

I still have to do some digging on the malts

Have any links for the all citra info? The website says 3 American hops. Definitely agree with citra as this beer is like mango juice.

All I can add is I saw caramalt grain bags.

Yeah thats one of the posts I saw too along with a couple others.

I didn't see the caramalt but wouldn't doubt its use in Julius, something is added to give it that beautiful orange hue. I saw Rahr sacks laying around last month when I went, assuming that is their 2-row source at least.
