4.21/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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.

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!
