BEER INFO

Great Notion Brewing
Oregon, United States
greatnotionpdx.com

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

This brew is so Mosaic, YCH might as well rewrite their hop profile description for it based on this beer. An orgasmic aromatic blend of candied mango, bubble gum, sweet tangerine peels, dried grass and some more candied fruit get right up to your face and all up in it. The candied mango and the grass prove more tenacious than rest of the elements as you let the brew sit, but the aroma admirably remains consistent throughout the entire drinking experience.

I'm going to go off on a limb and say that "dry-hopped mango juice" is probably the easiest way to describe this brew. Great Notion serves this beer in 10.5oz flute glasses because it's 9.2% ABV, but there's absolutely no hints of fusel alcohol or any heat detectable on this brew. But in the interest of science and because I like elaborating upon ideas: sweet mango, citrus peel, and light bread crust-like malt notes are present on the tongue.

Sticky, creamy, thick. Medium-bodied with a semi-slick consistency that envelopes your entire tongue. Clean finish and no heat despite the huge ABV and the amount of malt that must have gone in to balance out the huge flavors. Again, can't wait until their new brewery opens up and I get to maybe drink this on a semi-regular basis.

Crowler canned 11/16/2016. Shipped from Oregon to Colorado a couple weeks ago and kept cold in the fridge to settle.

Juice Box is a very hazy mango orange color with thin white head. It settles fairly quickly and leaves a fair bit of lace behind.

Aroma is fruity and fresh with great tropical notes. There is citrus and floral character in there as well.

Flavor is sweet up front with candied orange zest and mango. The bitterness of a double IPA just isn't there way you would expect. It's juicy fruit in a can.

Mouthfeel is balanced and incredibly drinkable. Carbonation is on point.

Overall an excellent double IPA and a great example of where hoppy beers are heading.

Had several pours at the Saraveza IIPA fest this year. The lacing is wonderful. Hazy orange look to it with minimal head. Beautiful aromas coming out of this one - papaya, mango, all the classic juicy IPA traits. This is on par with any other juicy IIPAs I have had. wonderful.

32 oz. crowler. Incredibly tropical aroma just when opening the can. Hazy orange body. Smell is all tropical fruit hops. Mango especially. Taste is juicy and tropical up front. Strong mango. Turns into a peach nectar flavor. Sweet. Low bitterness in the back end. Medium to medium heavy. This is absolutely delicious.
