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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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!

Bottle purchased at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY. This bottle retails for 16.99 at local stores around here- how is it $10 at Acme?

Pours an opaque hazy orange. Lots of residue in this one. 1 inch head, really good lacing down the glass.

Smells incredible. Stuck my nose in the bottle first, then the glass- pungent aromas of orange, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon.

Similar flavor. Unbelievably juicy. All of the fruits mentioned above, with some nice herbal piney qualities that leave a nice, but not lingering, bitterness on the palate at the end of each sip. When I smelled and tasted this one, it honestly reminded me of Heady Topper- this is the first time that's happened since I had HT.

Medium bodied, crisp, low-to medium carbonation. Very drinkable, the 22 oz went down too easy.

Amazing find here, this was one of the best IPAs I've ever had.
