3.8/5 rDev -8.4%
330ml bottle poured into tulip 27/10/13
A murky pale orange liquid with loads of the tiniest pin prick bubbles feeding a well retained massive three fingers of foam that leaves partial rings deep down the glass
S De Proef yeast is distinctive and I noticed it right away, sweet orange, tangerine, pineapple, floral and piney hops, some caramel and a hint of booze
T more yeast then the nose, the tropical flesh is a little rindy, vitamin C chewable, some brown sugar, and a little booze, not to far from the nose
M leaning towards full, pin prick bubbles give a creamy feel, quite gritty, a nice bitter snap, lingering yeasty citrus
O pretty solid DIPA, stereotypical even, perhaps a little faded but the hops are holding up nicely, the yeast it a little strong and perhaps holding it back
I was hoping for a little more but not bad at the end of the day, reminds me of a Mikkeller IPA, a few months old by the time it gets here, De Proef house notes, overpriced, and stops short of being great

Picked this up at City Beer Store today for $7.99.
Hazy orange with golden around the edges. Rocky, long lasting off-white foam stacked up 2-3 fingers high with lacing. Grapefruit/citrus and tropical hop aromas with modest esters. Very high bitterness grabs hold first and clings on tight. Grapefruit juice, grassy on the back-end with a crisp crack of lightly toasted bread in the middle. Finishing dry without much malt sweetness. Piney/evergreen. Moderate body, mid-high carbonation level. Though this is a product of a Swedish brewer brewing in Belgium, it tastes a hell of a lot like a west coast IPA to me. Loads of bitterness and hop character with just enough malt and a dry finish that keeps me coming back for another sip.

a - poured a two-fingers thick bubbly, off-white head into a snifter that left nice lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was amber.
s - citrus peel with a hint of grainy sweetness.
t - citrus peel again with more of a honey-like sweetness.
m - slick and medium at first but becomes more bubbly.
o - first beer from omnipollo and it was a solid DIPA.

Thick creamy white head on a somewhat clear dark golden body. Thick lacing sticks behind.
Some sweet caramel lingers through the hops that come across on the citrus side. Some floral.
Big pine and grapefruit flavor. Caramel malts. There's a bit of heat from the alcohol creeping in.
Smooth and fairly heavy for a IPA. Bitterness isn't too much for something this big. Leaves the mouth dry.
Pretty hefty stuff. A little less malt and alcohol and it's a solid 4.

A very, very hoppy IPA from Belgium (It's not actually Swedish - read the fine print on the label).
Orangey pour with medium head that flattens out fairly quickly. Great hoppiness.
If you like very hoppy IPA's, as I do, you'll like this one. Maybe the best IPA I've tried.

Pours a hazy orange with shades of gold. Very lively forming a nice thick white head.
Citric fruit forward with touches of pine followed by a mellow sweetness.
A nice blend of bitter and sweet. Although I found it to be overwhelmingly bitter at first it definitely evens out after a few sips. The nose promised more fruitiness but that wasn't delivered.
Mild carbonation and creamy, very smooth.
A very nice brew, quite bitter but does a nice job complementing burst of bitter with fruit flavour.

Drank from an 11.2 fl oz/33 cl. bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westboro, MA
The cap was stamped 23/08/14
Served in a snifter
Quite the hipster beer label. Omnipollo might even one-up Mikkeller's low-fi graphics with their edgy, minimalist aesthetic. As for the beer, it poured a super cloudy, glowing peach color. A near three-finger, dense, foamy, light beige head topped the liquid. The head slowly receded, leaving blankets of thick drippy lacing along glass.
The aroma was potently hoppy and bright. Uber fruity, juicy and sweet. Lots of tropical fruits initially. Mango and papaya dominated. Waves of grapefruit soon took over. Touch of orange peel. Clean, crisp and dry. Almost a bit soapy. As the beer opened up, tropical fruits again reappeared. Peach and apricot notes came through as well. Quite dynamic and complex. Amazingly well balanced.
The flavor profile was drastically different from the nose. Super pithy, dry and bitter. No malt presence whatsoever. White grapefruit completely dominated. Slightly tart and lemony in the center with hints of orange peel. Bitter pine and pithy rind on came through on the finish. A dry bitterness lingered on my palate for what seemed to be an eternity.
The beer was medium-light in body for the style. Thinner than I was anticipating, but creamy and slick. The liquid contained a fine, spritzy effervescence.
Despite the high price point, the combination of solid reviews on BA and interesting label graphics led me to believe that I should give this beer a shot. Although I loved certain things about it, I doubt that I would buy it again.

11.2 oz bottle, best before 8/23/14, poured into a teku
A- A slightly hazy amber/orange color with a four finger fluffy white head.
S- Piney, some earth spices, slightly dank, somewhat grassy, some tropical fruits, citrus.
T- Some citrus upfront, caramel malts, some pepper/earth spices, dank bitter piney hops in the finish.
S- Smooth, medium body, carbonation could be higher.
O- I would really like to try a fresh bottle of this. I did have the Stillwater remix and enjoyed it more, but I feel that it could be because it was fresher.

3.96/5 rDev -4.6%
A - Pours a cloudy orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Light sticky lacing.
S - Aromas of piney hops and citrus.
T - This is a hop bomb. Big amount of piney hops right upfront. There is a slight malt sweetness with some citrus (orange and grapefruit) to add some balance. Finish is strong bitter hops.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp mouthfeel. Sticky dry finish.
O - A very hop forward DIPA. Definetly tasty, but only recommended for hop heads.
