4.35/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a very cloudy woody yellow color with a small bubbly white head. It's barely a head, really. Just some bubbles on the surface, small enough to make me worry about under-carbonation. The aroma has a huge, bright tangerine flavor. It's also big on pineapple with a lighter touch of pine. Really nice work with hops on display, here. This stuff smells like fresh tangerine-pineapple juice. Tasty. The taste is big on hop flavor, low on bitterness. The pale malt is way in the background. It's just a mouthful of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and pine resin. The deeper pine and grapefruit come out in the finish. It's quite dry. Little bit of chalkiness in the feel. Quite light for the abv. This beer bares more than a passing resemblance to Heady Topper. It's not a dead-on clone, but there are quite a few similarities, and I mean that in the best possible way. It's a very tasty DIPA, one of the best that I've had recently. I wish there was a touch more bitterness to beer (I feel the same about HT), but this beer is very well constructed and fun to drink. Plus, it goes down far too easily for 8% abv. Great work 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.
