The liquid is a bit hazy (yeast sediment in the bottle); the colour is amber with a tint of orange (15 EBC). The two finger compact head is off-white. It sinks very slowly leaving lots of thick lacing.

The smell doesn’t fill the room as some DIPAs tend to do. However, the smell is medium strong. Fresh citric fruits (grape fruit, bitter oranges, tangerines, lime...). The bitterness is elegant rather than aggressive. Multifaceted notes of bitter almonds, grapefruit peel, sour fruit drops, and sour fruit liquors. Some herbal and flowery notes. The malts are quite dry, they stay in the background. Some fat/oily hints of motor oil come and go.

The taste... got a robust ground of clean sweetness. Apart from that, it is all about the hops. A hint of alcohol passes quickly. The bitterness is grand but not harsh. Grapefruits, bitter oranges, lemon/apple acid, sour fruit candy and a touch of wood. Medium body. The aftertaste is somewhat sweet with elegant hoppy flavours, some fat/creamy notes and even more grapefruit, fresh lemon juice, ginger, ripe apples, pineapples and a hint of white rum. The finish is bitter and dry.

The carbonation is strong, the large bubbles fresh and short-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A very elegant and well thought-out DIPA (as I expect with a beer from Omnipollo), not as aggressive as the Russian Roulette one. Highly drinkable and enjoyable! (1,395 characters)
