Bomber enjoyed in a pint glass
A: Strange cloudy funky yellow/orange with almost a light green hue at the edge of the glass. Really looks like grapefruit juice. Very little head but some lacing stayed on the side all the way down.
S: Bright pungent citrus notes--literally felt the juices start flowing in my mouth.
T/M: Very interesting--big upfront hop bite with citrus all the way with grapefruit and a little lemon but then as you take it to the back, a bit of a pine note. Not much malt. Really different from most IPAs but close in feel to a Heady. Light, dry finish.
O: Interesting--a rarity around my parts that I thoroughly enjoyed. Looks and tastes a bit like someone literally put juice in an IPA. Pricey but worth it for the experience. Recommended.

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.
