Juice Box (JB DIPA)Juice Box (JB DIPA)
Notes: Bursting with pungent American hops, with aromas of peach, mango, and passion fruit. Juice Box is brewed with over 4 pounds of hops per barrel, but the mellow bitterness and soft mouth feel makes this DIPA dangerously drinkable!

Solid NE but overhyped. Taste is citrus boozy and pine on the end.

On draft at Great Notion Northwest brewpub, served in a snifter.

Bright yellow-orangish hazy appearance (not to be confused with opaque). Tropical flavors are everywhere and finishes a bit sweeter than most other Great Notion DIPAs.

On tap at Himmeriget.

Pours a hazy orange with soft, fluffy head.

Smell is juicy with notes of mango, lemon peel, grass and mandarin oranges.

Taste follows the nose and adds some dank honey dew and a moderate bitterness. Dry finish with a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy, well carbonated.

Overall, a superb DIPA, balanced and full of hoppy goodness.

Cloudy orange with two fingers of antique white head. Good retention and sudsy lacing.

Sweet and floral aroma with mango, peach, apple juice, watermelon, pink grapefruit, passionfruit, iced tea and a little pepper.

Whatever fruitiness carries over to the taste is stepped on by a very peppery bite. There’s a little bitterness, too, but it’s the pepper that lingers. Any sweetness drops off precipitously.

Relatively full bodied, appropriate to style, with carbonation that highlights the pepper. (Is this hop burn? It literally burns if I let it sit in the mouth.)

This one starts out so promising. The look is pleasant and it smells like a juicier, better version of Heady Topper. The peppery burn is too heavy handed, though. Subpar in terms of the craftsmanship, IMO. 10/28/19 canned on date.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and poured with a short white head that died down a bit, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of orange citrus and mangos, which are accompanied by a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Imperial IPA hides its alcohol very well and drinks more like an IPA than a Double IPA.

Serving type: can

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twenty one dollars. My third brew from these guys, This is a fine beer, but way overpriced.

Phenomenal IPA. Pours a vibrant yellow-orange. Mango orange and papaya aromas. Juicy orange mango and papaya flavor. Feel is a perfect blend of carbonation and softness. Overall, a must try NE IPA.

Out of a can at Provisions in Orange, CA.

First things first, I have to say that this is definitely a FOMO beer. It’s like at 16 when you first got your hands on the Pamala Anderson/Tommy Lee tape: will it live up to the hype?

Nope.

This beer is definitely not large and in charge like Tommy Lee steering the boat with you know what I’m saying. On top of that, not only isn’t it Pam from the 90’s, I wouldn’t even say that it’s as good as current Pam (if that’s a good thing). Huge tropical fruit aroma, but flavor and feel is a bit mild. I guess I’m glad I tried it. Right?

Peace!
