On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Cloudy yellow colour, moderate white head. Aroma of pine, spruce and citrus. Hoppy flavour, slightly dry, notes of citrus and tropical fruits followed by a resinous bitterness.
Pours an opaque, orange-y yellow colour. A three inch thick head emerges of tightly packed bubbles that form into a rocky, creamy one inch head that lasts the entire beer. Pardon this overdone language, but it looks like a liquid creamsicle in my can. Forgot about the sediment at the bottom, so when I finished the pour, thick swirls of unfiltered goodness swirled around in the opaque liquid, slowly twirling and falling down. Wow
Smell is mango, mango, and did I mention mango? You’ll smell it the second you pop the can. You’d be forgiven for thinking they just straight up added mango juice in here. Pineapple is also present, general tropical fruits with a gentle citrus fruit background and mildly spicy, earthy, aromatic hops.
Taste is deliciously mild but subtle and complex. There is an absolutely great backbone of wheaty breads and malty flavours that add sweetness to the whole thing. This really brings out the pineapple and mango fruity forward taste of this beer. Earthy tastes swirl in the background before evening out into a general wheaty bread finish. Gentle bitter pine notes linger here as well. Spritzes of grapefruit throughout
I’d say this is pretty medium bodied. Resinous and yet fairly creamy feel to the beer, likely thanks to the oats, gives it a real great feel. Looks more carbonated than it is, the tiny bubbles coalesce in your mouth and foam up to give a very creamy sip. Gently sweet and bitter on the finish, more juicy than dry.
Surprised at the vast disparity in some reviews, 1’s overall up to 4.5 overalls. Not sure what’s happening, either a style preference mismatch or perhaps some sort of issue with a batch that was brewed under license? Either way, hard to get behind it being weak on the nose or excessively bitter. I’m by no means a hop maniac, and this was very well balanced without egregious bitterness. It was also impressive on the nose as well. Always good to drink your IPAs as fresh as possible to keep those aromatics strong!
I’ll be honest, I’m 1000% surprised at how delicious, amazing, and balanced this is. While this is tropical fruit forward in taste and aroma, multiple other flavours in the background mix and mingle and with the delicious mouthfeel, make for an incredibly compelling drink. This is the first non-malty beer/IPA that’s going on my permanent restock list. I doubt many beer drinkers, if any IPA drinkers, allow as much sediment in their pour as I do. I recommend trying it at least once, or trying it if you didn’t like the beer the first time. I suspect the sediment brought out the malty background and balanced the flavours while tempering some of the more overt tropical flavours to produce a particularly delicious, less thin, creamy bitter-sweet beer. For me, it was absolutely mouthwatering!
Look: Thick hazy pale yellow. This beer looks like you could stand a spoon in it. Pours with a 1 and 1/2 finger tightly bubbled white head. The head retention is good, after 5 minutes it has a solid ring of lace around the rim.
Smell: Peach, mango, apricots, tangerines. Hints of floral with a slight piney back end.
Taste: Softly floral, follows the smell with bits of pineapple as well. Tropical and juicy but not overwhelmingly so. It has a dry earthy undertone that comes out from the middle to end. Piney hopes peak thru at the end.
Feel: Medium bodied and creamy. Very soft and round.
A very solid American west coast meets east coast IPA. I'd be happy to have another one sitting around the pool. This a a solid A- beer.
A bright, tropical delight. Pours creamy, cloudy mango with lots of effervescence. I'm a pineapple-lover and this beer hits the spot both on aroma and taste. Hints of grapefruits and orange along with the herbal bitterness of hops. Looks and feels inviting and refreshing. Quite a bitter aftertaste which takes getting used to.
A-Hazy light orange in color with a well established bright white head that lingers. Good lacing
S-More herbal than fruit forward, and the aroma is not overly pronounced
M-Medium body with medium carbonation.
T-Sweet upfront with a low level of bitterness that comes through and remains on the finish
O-This beer is decent, but lacks lustre in my opinion
I bought a can of this beer at lcbo in Ontario
I poured a 1 to 2 finger head into glass hazy beautiful color to this beer.
smooth medium bitterness tropical fruits and pineapple light malty and hoppy.
On my can it said brewed by Omnipollo Stockholm Sweden & Toronto Ontario Canada.
product of Canada
the taste is almost perfect overall it's an excellent beer and will buy this again.
I don't know what everyone else was thinking. Cracked this open and was overwhelmed by the aroma of.. well just smelt like some skunky weed. After my first sip I came to the conclusion that this beer just flat out tastes like shit. Will never buy again. Peace Out
Golden blonde, lightly veiled. Beautiful creamy foam, white.
Strongly hoppy smell, fresh, citrus (grapefruit) and a light pney and resinous.
More piney in the taste, a bit less grapefruit, and again, fresh and pleasant.
Light fruity notes, pineapple and peach.
Average to light body. Bitter aftertaste, tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit, long bitterness.
Can; pours a cloudy pale yellow with a 2 finger frothy white cap....aromas of fruit, pine, botanicals and light malt sweetness....well balanced and hoppy, soft mouth feel... silken delivery of an excellent hop blend (bitter, herbal, floral, citus) against backing pale malts...long wet finish dries out and gets lightly bitter...quenching and hoppy but smooth and drinkable.
Medium: Canned + IPA glass.
Opacity: Very hazy.
Color: Straw with a golden hue.
Head: Foamy beige 2 finger.
Legs: Very good.
Body: Medium oily with moderate smoothness, gets a bit bland.
Carbonation: Average, kinda dull.
Overall: Pretty good quality IPA.
Cloudy with a whitish gold color. Modest head. Some small streaks for lace.
Fresh hoppy aroma. The pale malt remains dry throughout the smell.
Brief malt flavor which remains light in the background. The bittering hop stands out in a simplistic way providing a long aftertaste. Decent body with a higher carbonation level. Approaching extreme in terms of bitterness but offering little complexity.
