Poured from a bottle into a Goose Island tulip. The pour is yellowish orange in color, extremely cloudy, and sports about a finger of rocky white head. I'm not used to seeing IIPAs that are this opaque (unless they're homebrews). It doesn't disturb me and the beer certainly looks tasty, even though I can't see through it. The nose on this beer is wonderful. Lots of fresh oranges, pineapples, and grapefruit.

Light-medium body and a slightly thin feel (for an Imperial IPA), but a delightfully citrusy, hop-forward flavor. There's a slightly grainy sweetness up front, then a rush of intense grapefruit flavors from the hops. The citrus flavors carry all over the palate, scouring away the graininess and blasting through the finish, which is like freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.

Overall, a really good American-Style IIPA (from Sweden!), though a bit pricey for what it delivers. It's definitely worth buying if you enjoy citrusy IIPAs, but I honestly don't think I'll give it a return visit. There are so many terrific beers like this out there right now, a $12 bomber sort of fits in the "have to try that once" category. Still, I'd be very interested in trying other beers from Omnipollo. (1,199 characters)

If you have yet to try heady topper, just get this instead. I'm sure the price/availability makes it harder to get better reviews but this is just a great beer.

If this were being packaged weekly and out to the masses.... Oh baby (231 characters)

pours cloudy and not much head. almost unappetizing but boy is this DIPA fantastic. It starts with some citrus, then some sweetness, then finishes with a long lingering bitterness. It's perfect. At the price I paid for a 12 oz bottle I would expect a great beer. Good thing I had it before and knew what I was getting into. (328 characters)

Teku glass. Bottle. Cloudy golden with two/three finger white head. Good lacing. Aroma is excellent - lots of citurs (lemon, orange and definetely grapefruit). The taste is not as intense as flavour, fruity palate with citrus (mainly grapefruit), peach, grapes. Also some bread, cake notes along with straw flavoursMedium bitterness balanced by malts (sweetness). Medium body, thick, dry, medium carbonation. Finish is bitter and long. Definetely one of the best DIPA I've ever tried. Very aromatic, drinkable and thick. But too pricey. (537 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter from a 12 ounce bottle.

A- Cloudy mango-colored liquid. Frothy pale white head. Great head retention and abundant lacing. Looks thick enough to be a smoothie. 4.25

S- Pineapple, passionfruit and a touch of tartness and dank. Light malt presence. 4.25

T- Man, so fruity. Mango and pineapple and passionfruit give way to more pineapple. The fruity qualities and sweet malt complement each other well. A more grapefruit like beer emerges too. Love the medley of flavors. 4.5

M- Drinks refreshingly with a lighter-feeling body that still isn't thin. Bitterness works throughout with touches of sweetness and zestiness. Great stuff. 4.5

This beer is great. It wasn't much on my radar but now I want more. A lot more. (739 characters)

Odd appearance like Tang. Very strong lemongrass smell. Very grassy taste, surprisingly sweet and almost no bite. (113 characters)

A: Looks just like orange juice minus the pulp. Head is modest. Lace is sparse and spotty. He orange juice look makes me think refreshing and delicious....

S: Aroma is a dank party of stinky tropical funk. Sweet bready malts blanketed by a hoppy forest. Light crisp pine over deep dark pungent goodness. It's so aromatics it cleans out the nostrils. It's like a whiff of fresh hop pellets.

T: Super brisk, almost peppery, pine to the head. Mouthwatering juicy fruit.

M: Each sip leaves the mouth feeling encrusted with hop resins. Carbonation is pointy initially and gradually smooths out. Very juicy and very dry.

O: Excellent! (633 characters)
