The colour is pale amber with some red (20 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick warm beige head is compact. Good head retention. Some lacing. There is yeas sediment in the bottle.
The smell is dry fruity and very hoppy with a mild bitter note. Grapefruit peels, kiwi fruits, green bananas and cream candy flavours. Some light clean sweetness and lemon candy. It is very fresh.
The taste is at first bitter, but it fades leaving room for green fruits and berries, citric fruits/juice/peels. Some lightly roasted hints of malt. Light to medium body. There is some smooth bitter flavours in the aftertaste as well as notes of lemonade and (dry) orange juice. The finish is mellow, balanced and citric with a hint of alcohol.
The carbonation is strong, almost soda-like, with lots of medium sized short-lived bubbles. The liquid is dry and medium smooth.
The most drinkable and refreshing beer for the summer of 2012? I vote for this one.

On tap at torst brooklyn.
Floral and manderin orange in the nose.
Creamy, sweet, light, floral hop profile. Very smooth and uncharacteristic creamy mouth feel. Excellent. Super enjoyable. Complex enough. Mouth feel just unbelievable.

To satisfy the thirst for citrusy drippy American hops but without the risk of heightened inebriation, Omnipollo devises this "Extra Special Pale" ale but with the proportions rearranged to meet American IPAs.
Bright peach in color, the beer glows with diffused haze. Its dry hop character is evident. A creamy ecru-white head floats on the beer, seeming like meringue or the froth of hot chocolate. It's a delightful looking beer, emulating IPA the best it can.
Starting bright, citrusy, and zesty- the malt character is hard to find. Its certainly an IPA as a burst of grapefruit, ripe oranges, pineapple and apricot flavor wraps around the tongue. A teasing type of sweetness is caught between honey and caramel- giving the hop "fruit" character is sweeter, more candied effect. An even fade to crisp and refreshing citrus bitterness closes the beer lightly grassy, mildly pungent and with an herbal bouquet.
Medium-light in body, the beer now leans Pale Ale. The modest sweetness trails, taking with it the creamy notion of carbonation. What's left is the resinous bitterness of hops that stick to the back of the mouth in dry bitterness, shy alcohol warmth, and a linger of citrus peels.
Where the current trends of Pale Ale is to resemble IPA but with drier and less sweet taste and body- the Swedish aren't just chasing the scene, they're driving the bus.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a cloudy medium orange amber with a massive white head with good retention and tons of lacing. Great aroma of citrus hops, sweet malt and pineapple immediately after opening and during pour. Flavor is suprisingly dry, grapefruit, citrus hops, faint malt. Not as aromatic as the aroma, but nice. The dry, hoppy taste is unusual and interesting in an american pale ale. At first I was hoping for more intense flavor, but grew to really enjoy the subtle flavors underlying the aggressive hops in this brew. Medium bodied with active carbonation. Well done and satisfying.

Enjoyed this brew out of a large snifter glass.
A: Pours a copper hue with a huge white head that lasts forever and ends in a solid lace leaving a partial trail down the side of the glass.
S: Hoppy tart aroma with a pleasant musky smell.
T: Tart and hoppy of front followed by a decent malt middle and finished on the dry side of hoppy.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Nice brew - I would drink this again.
