Purchased from Stearns Liquor in Long Beach. Poured into shaker pint glass. Love the artwork. Good carbonation on this. Had to really slow the pour down. Big white fluffy head. Smell is decent. This is a pretty good pale ale. It's got a modest hop profile with a nice malt backbone to it. Mouthfeel is good. Overall I would drink this again but the price is a bit steep for a 12oz bottle ($7.99). cheers!

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.

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.

Extremely drinkable.

Fresh bottle from Premier Gourmet. I have no info on date brewed however. Subtle grapefruit flavour. Large retained head. Easy drinking, with some mouth puckering lemon tangy finish. Middling mouthfeel with prickling carbonation.Very light coloured body.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into brandy snifter. Unfortunately, the date on the top has rubbed off.

A: Three fingers of white lacy head fades quickly. Hazy dark amber-wheat is highly translucent.

S: This smell generates an enormous grin from me. I can smell the Citra, which I adore, and fruity Amarillo, and generally it smells like a Double IPA, even down to sweetish-pleasant malts.

T/M: Delicious. Light, crisp, and fruity, with the hop presence surprisingly gentle, but providing almost all the interesting aspects of the beer-- the fruit, the bitterness, the dryness, the complexity...The finish is subtle, but with more than a tinge of malt. Mouthfeel is pleasant but neutral.

O: So far I'm a big fan of Omnipollo. I look forward to trying more. This is a great pale ale. Recommended.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high frothy off white head that only died down a little and left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of orange citrus in the nose along with some notes of passionfruit.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but a little more complex with added flavors of earthy and floral hops along with some notes of spicy hops towards the finish. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink—as one with a light body should be—but really has an interesting mix of flavors in the taste due to the variety of hops that were used.
