Best before 05-02-16, so i'd say it's fairly fresh. Sure smells like it, right after popping the cap.
Pours hazy orange, building up a rich two finger and a half fluffy white head that doesn't rush anywhere. Later on a thin cap remains and a very sticky lace.
There's a perfect marriage of citrus and pine in the smell, all atop quite a lot of caramel, with some sweet tropical fruit (papaya, pineapple, faint lychee and mango) and orchard fruit (apricot, peach, pear). This should be great.
Huge pineapple in the front, probably the clearest i've found in a beer, followed by tons of bitter citrus, like grapefruit and lemon peel, getting sweeter in a flash second, with tangerines, pomelo, limes, also some peach and perfumey mango. Nice caramel helps the sweetness, also some honey with quite a lot of floral notes. Big green notes, like pine resin, weed, hop oils, a huge fresh leafiness follows, and sweeps away any sweetness, giving room to a huge, dry, spicy bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation, creamy, almost oily. Fitting for such a rich heavy IIPA. Aftertaste is a hop nuke fallout, leaving nice fruitiness and big bitter green notes. You don't have time to feel any alcohol.
A rollercoaster, with a big surprising complexity, but in the end perfectly balanced, great flavours, incredible hops.

Sampled a bottle from work.
Light amber, hard to believe this is a double. Very little cloud, and pours a 1.5 - 2 finger head.
Smells of oranges and coriander. Really inviting. You can tell this is going to be dry.
Sweet oranges and coriander hit up front. It changes to a little onion like towards the middle and finishes clean and orange.
Dry, very light malt and absense of yeast. Make this just dry with mid to light mouthfeel. Good carbonation and mousse.
That's awesome. Very straightforward and easy to drink, for hopheads. Love it and more. It's not cheap though. One of favorites since dreadnaught but not as sweet.
See one, try it.

A: Translucent golden with a white head.

S: Sweet nectary pineapple, tropical fruits, papaya, tangerine in an amazing nose.

T: A little malt, some orange, mango, pineapple, tropical fruit. Lightish, but very flavorful if that makes any sense.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: Im thinking maybe I should just move to Sweden.

330ml bottle purchased for me by @LaitueGonflable for Christmas.

Pours a beautiful hazed peach colour, with a full, frothy head of white, that sticks to the edges as persistent lace. Body is solid and juice, and hold a small amount of fine carbonation. That colour is lovely, and it's the main deal of the beers appearance. Looks wonderful.

Nose is fragrant with stonefruit sweetness, dusted with a slightly peppery overtone. Clean, fragrant hop resin sticks in the sinuses, while the solid sweetness provides richness and depth. Awesome. So fragrant, but well integrated, and pleasingly different from the stock-standard IPA.

Taste is delicious: big stonefruit juiciness again, with mellow preserved lemon, quince and lilly-pilly edges, bitten back by a crisp peppery finish. Sweetness forms as a beautiful nutty amalgam of hops and malt, leaving a sweet-savoury mid-palate that coasts into a comforting finish. Very nicely balanced indeed: juicy, rich and flavoursome, but checked and balanced and masterfully reigned in.

Feel is clean and light, but with a bestowed body to support the flavours on the palate.

Wow. I'm very much impressed. This is my first beer from Omnipollo, and it certainly shall not be my last. This is a superb IPA, up there with some of the best I've tried. It's so fragrant and delicious, but balanced and supremely drinkable. Extremely good stuff.
