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.

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.
