thanks maddogg for the crowler share. at first did not like this. nose carried such heavy melon it resembled puke...as it opened that became more of a soapy smell. melon is HUGE. initially off putting but as it opens it blends in nicely.

32oz crowler. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours a mondo hazy medium orange and straw yellow body, one finger thick white head, plenty of effervescence and lacing. Smells of rich juicy canteloupe. Seriously, this smells like a resinous, floral canteloupe. Mild caramel sweetness, a bit of cereal grain, but this is big on the hops. Flavour is hefty canteloupe and juicy citrus, mild caramel sweetness, mild resin and a light floral presence. Not much bitterness at all. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, super drinkable and flavourful with plenty of depth. Smooth, light floral bitterness with a lot of juicy melon. Overall, really enjoyed this one, a lot like the Juice Jr crowler I had a few days back. Great Notion is doing great things as far as hazy juicy IPAs go in the PNW.
