JB DIPAJB DIPA
Notes: Bursting with pungent Mosaic hops and aromas of peach, mango, and passion fruit, JB has a creamy smooth mouthfeel and mellow bitterness. Watch out, this big brother to Juice Jr. is dangerously drinkable!

Creamy cloudy straw appearance with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a pleasant citrus. Taste is a very nice citrus/grapefruit that has a lot of substance.

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

Peace!

Pours about a finger of white head into my nonic, slightly soapy looking. Retention is about average, but leaves behind a sturdy film. Body is orange juice. Overall looks fine so far.

Nose is heavy tropical fruits, with mango and papaya, generous amounts of citrus fruit as well. Not very dank. Smells very good, but unoriginal.

Flavor is actually quite nice. Most everything comes through well – tropical fruits are the most prominent, citrus is less noticeable, but hangs out in the back. A little one dimensional with the flavor, but it is clean, flavorful, and works perfectly fine.

Mouthfeel is good as well. Surprisingly dry for a hazy, which I welcome. Body is about medium, also good. Carbonation is just about medium as well. Bitterness is moderate and compliments the beer well. Overall a very well done mouthfeel.

Drinkabiltiy is very good for a beer pushing 8.5 percent, this is tasty and unoffensive, with no alcohol.

Appearance turned out poor. The head was not too promising to begin with, but this glass is also a tad dusty, probably affected the lacing.

Overall one of the better beers I’ve had from Great Notion. It’s not trying to be too cute, just a straight forward juicy IPA. It still looks like orange juice, but it may actually qualify as beer.
