Great Notion Juice Box

What the brewers say

“Bursting with pungent American hops, with aromas of peach, mango, and passion fruit. Juice Box is brewed with more than 4 pounds of hops per barrel, but the creamy smooth mouthfeel and mellow bitterness make this Double IPA dangerously drinkable.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate fruitiness, with mango, pineapple, melon, and grapefruit, as well as orange and a little lemon. Some berry hops flavors, and a medium spiciness and light pine.”

Flavor: “Fruit sweetness that includes mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and light strawberry. Very smooth and complex. Flavors of pine, resin, and spice lend some awareness to the alcohol content, emerging in the middle and lasting to the end. The body is fluffy and creamy, allowing the beer to blend well throughout the taste through the finish.”

Overall: “The ‘imperial’ attribute of this double IPA is evident—the alcohol is noticeable and fights with the hops bitterness. It’s very good, well blended, and has a great body. For those who like some piney and spicy hops for balance in their juicy IPAs, this hits the spot.”
