Excellent. Pours a hazy cloudy yellow. Aroma is a citrus explosion of orange juice. Taste is similar. Feel is soft with medium carbonation. Overall, well... I wish I had another.

Welcome back for my seCANd offering of New Omnipollo CANned Beer Sunday (Week 701)!

From the CAN: "Imperial India Pale Ale"; "You Are Everywhere".

The Crack! revealed another brimful craft CAN from this brewer/brewery, but I am not CANplaining. Au CANtraire, mon frere, I liken it to a Baker's Dozen, getting just a little bit more than what I paid for. It was kind enough to form a cap of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with decent retention, leaving nice lacing in its wake. Color was a slightly hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose was heavy with tropical fruit, especially pineapple. Mouthfeel was medium, but very prickly in terms of its carbonation. The taste was a pleasant surprise with a pineapple, mint & lime flavor, almost like a Tiki Lounge cocktail! I would have liked a little basil to go with it, but it was very flavorful, highly carbonated & distinctly refreshing. Finish was dry with an almost gin/juiniper-like dryness. Man, this was like last night's cocktail hour, except with beer, from a CAN! Dig that crazy action.

Slightly hazy yellow, small white head leaving little lacing.

Grapefruit pith, orange rind, lemon and biscuit malt.

Very citrus forward palate. Unrippened orange, lemon zest, grapefruit pith and childrens chewable aspirin. Tangy, lingering finish.

Efervesant carbonation. Light, medium mouthfeel.

Good but not great. The lingering aspirin finish is a bit distracting and the malt creeps into the mix a bit too much. Nice start to this beer but the finish dissapoints. Glad I tried it but won't seek it out in the future. $13.99 for the 4 pack.

Pours a clear orange that develops a finger of white foam after a modest pour straight into the glass. Head retention is good. Aroma is orange peel, tangerine and papaya with biscuit malts evident behind. It's a display of tropical fruits, and although they work together well, still allow the malts to shine through. Flavor profile is orange peel, lemon zest, and tangerine with biscuit and toast malts behind. Good balance between the hops and malts, developing a balanced beer. Mouth feel is crisp, and with a slight effervescent at the end. It's refreshing, with a medium thickness. Overall, a good quality IPA that balances hops and malts well.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

Cloudy light yellow- golden color with a 4F head in a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Very juicy ( orange juice) and fragrant aroma.

Light body.

Excellent full citrus and juicy taste followed by a very hoppy finish.

I really enjoyed this beer- good balance between aroma, taste and finish.
