Notes: This sessionable IPA is brewed with an insane amount of Mosaic hops and lots of love. Juice Jr. is the little brother of JB DIPA.

32oz crowler, 11 days old. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours a moderately hazy orange, no particulates, one finger thick white head, plenty of carbonation is apparent; rings of lacing, thin film. Looks good. Smells of rich citrus, blood oranges, pulp, light caramel sweetness. Flavour is quite juicy with citrus and orange pulp. Mild caramel sweetness, light astringent cereal grain. Lots of citrus following through the remainder of the way. Mild zesty bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, creamy and smooth with a light bitter, zesty astringency at the end that doesn't linger long, inviting another drink. Very tasty stuff; reminds me a lot of Toppling Goliath pseudoSue at its best.

Aroma: Guava passionfruit
Taste: Bright mosaic, straight Trillium Melcher, a bit of hop zing, pineapple juice, grapefruit zest. One of the best beers I had at the brewery and better than Juice Box.

Sweet, tropical-citrus, dank-hoppy nose on this one! Taste follows well with a dank and hoppy bitter bite and subdued sweetness. I had this on tap, but prefer this much more out of the can...the depth and feel is much better and the dank-hoppy notes pop out more. Sessionable and crushable at only 6% ABV, this is a good one to start the night out with if you are getting started early. LOL! Good!

On tap at the brewery.

A mildly hazy light orange with a white head that falls off rapidly leaving little lacing this looks solid. The nose is super juicy with passionfruit, papaya , mango and peach, in that order. Minimal malt character. The palate opens with gobs of juicy hops, with passionfruit, papaya, mango , a little guava and a back end of peach and orange. Unabashedly juicy with minimal bitterness, there's a mild aspirin like astringency present. Sweet and juicy on the finish with a lingering fruit juice character, this beer is light in body and moderately carbonated. Enjoyable.

Mosaic

Huge botanical freshness. Danker as it warms. These two things made the happy Mosaic fruit a whole lot more interesting. Turbid, NE, fresh - I’m all in. 4.5

nice, well-balanced with good malt base, better when warmer
deep thick resiny hops, but not over the top
better towards room temperature
