Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours an orangeish hazy amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white fluffy head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Pungent, floral hop aroma as per the Northern European IPA signature. Brashly musty and fumy with some moderately strong alcohol.

T- Bitterness sinks in hard and brings with it a very lemony, tangy hop flavor. It has an almost cleaner-like chemical taste to it but I actually kind of like it. Alcohol is decently hidden.

M- Dry, lingering hop bite with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- This ain't half-bad. A little misplaced abrasiveness but, in the end, it's tasty if you're in the mood for a little abuse. Definitely not worth the money I spent on it though.

33 cl bottle poured into a tulip glass. Interesting approach to a DIPA ... Brewed with adjuncts to accentuate the hop flavors and keep the body light, not unlike a few world class examples of the style that feature hefty sugar additions. Anyhow, has a classic orange-yellow amber color and an initially massive frothy white head that does settle down some. Very bright citrus aroma, navel and blood oranges, kumquats, tangy Vitamin C tablet, overripe papayas, underripe pineapple, flower petals, coriander seed, strawberry-kiwi fruit chews, peppercorns, starfruit ... All kinds of weird and wonderful scents are assailing the olfactory bulbs and I've yet to take a sip. On the palate the citrus still comes through, although things get decidedly herbal, flinty, vegetal, and dare I say dank (what does this term mean?? Depends on who you ask!).. Minerals and some toasted crusts come though, medicinal juniper and pine needles, strong flower water, bitter licorice root and sundry witch cauldron herbage, and any fruits from the nose take a decidedly green turn. A hint of onion. Its not bad really, but the contrast between sweet vibrant nose and earthy resinous taste is jarring. Wow. Body is indeed on the thin side for the style and the carbonation is brisk. Finish does not dissipate quickly and is essentially an ultra-dry continuation of the root cellar and forest floor flavors cataloged earlier. This one is indeed a wild ride. Insanely bitter. One wonders how purposive this beer was ... Did these guys intend to deliver such a nose-mouth dichotomy? I am not in a position to judge. As Charlie Papazian says, "relax ... don't worry"...

Poured a somewhat clear (not translucent) golden body with two finger well-carb'd head that died slow and left lace down glass.
A sour, dirty hop aroma that gives off not just citric but almost a sour fruit/veggie aroma and even that grassy aroma one can get from cheap macros.
Light to medium bodied, this beer is all about the hops as a bread/cracker malt base that comes across as grainy, and sweet caramel and sweet fruit notes are buried under dry, bitter, dirty/spicy, earthy hops that even come across sour/tart/funky.
Not a bad beer but not my favorite for an IPA because the hop bitterness is strong enough to nuke my taste buds and basically dry them out before I can even finish my beer, which naturally leads to a very dry, almost tart, finish as I find myself not wanting to finish the beer due to my tongue feeling like I just ate burnt toast and I need water.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a DFH signature glass.

A: Three fingers of head churns and fades. Hazy auburn with effervescence.

S: Citrus and herbal. A whiff of onion, a strong strain of sweet malt, pleasant fruit.

T: Surprisingly spicy/herbal/floral. It's....obnoxiously full of coriander, roots, raw onion, bitter flower petals. Perhaps this was a super-hoppy beer than become too old? I still think they've added flowers or spice or *something* to make it so bizarrely herbal/earthy. Generally pleasant-hoppy aftertaste.

M: Generous but not overwhelming.

O: This is one of my least favorite Omnipollos yet, but it's still tasty-ish. Not recommended. Wouldn't have again.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange with an imposing, bubbly white head.

S: Aromas of navel orange, mandarin orange, kumquat, lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, grass, herbs, minerals, and biscuit are present on the nose.

T: Assertive notes of mandarin and navel oranges, lime, lemon, kumquat, tangerine, grapefruit, caramel, honey, crackers, biscuits, minerals, herbs, grass, and bready yeast fill the mouth. The finish is bitter and long with plentiful notes of yeast, herbs, grass, lemon, lime, and orange.

M: Medium-bodied and oddly dry for the style. There is a subtle hint of chalkiness that develops around mid-palate and lingers through the fade. Carbonation is extremely active and intense. Very airy in texture for a DIPA.

O: For the most part, this is a very solid and respectable DIPA. I would recommend it to fans of the style who are looking for something a little different.

Light yeast sediment cloudiness and amber yellow body sporting a thick, lasting, chunky, white head. Pepper, lemon, and grassy aroma. Strong bitterness from the start; fair malt juiciness to rein things in a bit; leather. Medium-light body; smoothly effervescent; dry finish.

A tongue ripping IIPA with the bitterness screaming for attention and not really letting go. The brewery's web site states this beer is brewed with rice and corn which probably accounts for a relatively lightweight quality to the body and the strong hop bitterness throughout. There appears to be some traditional malt qualities present, and a bit more would have been welcome to balance things out more, but if intense hop bitterness is what you crave, this beer will deliver.
