16oz tallboy purchased at Community Pint in Spokane, WA, for $6. First opportunity I've ever had to buy a Great Notion beer. According to the stamp near the top, this was canned on November 19, 2018.

Poured into a big Boston Lager glass, this was the color of an orange creamsickle, and was entirety opaque. A small, creamy, white head formed and was highly resilient, and easily swirled into greater size. Spotty lace.

Fruity and melon-like in the aroma. Mangoes, oranges and a little bit of cantaloupe jump out. Virtually no bitter hop notes.

Tastes like what an orange creamsickle might taste like without vanilla being added. Fruity and sweet without being at all cloying. Towards the finish there's the merest hint of a bitter, pithy dryness, but it remains creamy throughout.

Medium bodied, with a luscious, creamy mouthfeel.

This, at least to my western tastebuds, screams NE Hazy IPA, though it's looks are beyond hazy, really. Soft and creamy, fruit forward but also restrained, it's an absolute delight to drink this. Great Notion, at least at first taste, is worthy of the hype.

Love the MoMo! Pours a super light extra turbid yellow. Thin to medium white foam head. Nose is a balance of sweet fruityness and mellow maltyness. Super fresh bit of citrus. Well balanced between bitter and sweet. Creamy body and smooth round mouthfeel. This is a really nice brew.

My first Great Notion beer! Looks like a quintessential NEIPA. The perfect soft feel to it too. Not too bitter and full in body. The perfect balance in bitterness and sweetness for me. Great Notion is worth the hype.

Pours opaque and white washed squash yellow with a thin frothy white head that disappears completely.

Aroma is primarily orange juice, kiwi, mango, banana, and yogurt.

The flavor starts off very herbaceous, as I detect dill and thyme. The fruity flavors are muted together, and kiwi seems no longer present.

The feel is creamy and thick. It's near perfectly balanced without much bitterness to speak of.

Overall, this is definitely not my favorite from GN, but still damn good. Cheers!
