4.2/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

No bottle date but just released last week.

A: Well, certainly a unique look. It pours just like a witbier. Kind of a light orange. Very hazy. Not hazy, straight up cloudy in fact. Don't get any light through it all. Head and mid-sized, fluffy and tan. It fades very quickly though...very quickly and very oddly. It's hard to describe, it basically turns into what looks like soap bubbles. It's a head made up of very large and clear bubbles briefly and then it's all gone. Zero lacing. Possibly the strangest appearance I've seen.

S: Well, the smell is really nice. Citrus is off the scale. Ripe, juicy oranges, grapefruit and tangerines. Tropical fruits in general like pineapple. It smells like a glass of tropical fruits, you would never guess it's a beer aroma if you were blindfolded. Even get some orange peel. When swirled I get just a hint of some wheaty malt.

T: Big hop burst up front. Tropical fruits again with lots of grapefruit. Again with the orange, tangerine and pineapple. Spicy pine in there too, surprisingly strong into the middle. Has sort of a saison-ish malt. Very grainy and wheaty, mainly in the middle and finish. Big wave of bitterness in the finish, leading to a strong, drying, bitter pine and grapefruit aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied and full. Lower carbonation.

O: A very interesting, unique and tasty DIPA. It's sorta a hybrid, it's like a mega dry hopped saison in some ways. A mega dry hopped saison that looks like a witbier. Hey, whatever works. It's a west coast hop bomb with a wheaty backing. I enjoyed it quite a bit. One small note, once I poured the entire bottle into the glass I got a lot of sediment. This must include actual hop particles because BOY did it amp up the hop flavors and bitterness. It literally made me start coughing. Beware if you aren't an extreme hop head, this baby's got some serious hop strength in it now. I kinda don't mind it because I sometimes enjoy over-the-top beers. Very crazy, these guys.

4.14/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The liquid is cloudy like a hefeweizen, the colour amber-orange. The low firm head is off-white.

The smell is loaded with sweet exotic fruits and a mild bitterness. It reminds more of fruit juice than an DIPA.

The taste is brutally hopped with almost ridiculous amounts of fresh fruits. Almost no bitter flavours at all. Tart fruits, some mango, green bananas, lime and passion fruit. The beer is quite sweet, but there are enough bitter hops to keep it balanced. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is somewhat harsh, but the strong sweetness softens it. Some minerals, sweet toffee and fruits in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, the large light bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is thick, this might very well be the thickest beer I have had. At least under 10 %.

An intensively hopped beer, with almost no bitter flavours. I am once again impressed by the Omnipollo skills.
