Pours a murky golden with orange huts and a tiny ivory head that dissipates into a very thin layer of foam.
Lemon, orange rind, resin, and grass form the initial aroma. Earthy, dank hops emerge. Grapefruit is present, but the grassy, earthy, dank hops dominate.
Flavor is dry, aside from the initial citrus underpinnings and that savory character that I usually find in Amarillo hops. Earthy, pea flavors form the backbone, which finishes chalky, dry, bitter, and peppery. Lemonheads and grapefruit pith represent the majority of citrus flavor. A saline, oyster character surfaces late.
Body is moderate, with spritzy carbonation and significant alcohol warmth. The dryness helps to quench the heat.
An interesting counterpart to the citrus and sweet malt-dominant American dipas. I needed the dryness after holiday indulgences. But the peppery character overwhelms my palate a bit excessively.

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.
