4.25/5  rDev +8.1%

for an instant upon cracking this noble brew, it having flown thousands of miles to come into my hand, I was blessed with a hoppy, citrusy funk that sent shivers down my spine. I had found it - a beer that would fill my mouth with wonder as the fatamorgana had years ago.

Alas, it is not quite as toothsome as an omnipollo, but it ranks right up there with stone's best offerings for hop profile and body - reminds me vaguely of the arrogant bastard upon further sippage.

ruddy ruddy ruddy - this beer ain't pale. 2 finger head with sticky but slightly moist lacing.

very pronounced bitterness, overlaid by notes of grapefruit and juniper. getting dry white wine and sticky resin as the experience progresses. Large staying power, with a thick, carmelly mouth-feel that makes you feel like you're biting in to an apple at the fair.

packaging is excellent - "if you're looking for a sign, this is it", "please enjoy life", a big ol' sunglassed angel-pig #15 on the front daring you to guzzle down this palette-hogger of an ale.

perhaps some late-stage mosaic would round it out.

330ml bottle. Shaker glass. Enjoyed during a tasting-presentation party @ La Cervecita (Barcelona). Bright brass in color, clear appearance. Yellowish off-white froth, showing fairly good retention. Intense resinous aromas, biscuit hues, caramel hints, floral notes & slight citric on the back. Mild toasted malt upfront yields to sharp piney & floral bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Increasing sharp but clear bitterness on a complex malt bed lingers into a resinous & fruity finish. Flavorful & easy drinkable !!
