look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

11-3-16 date on the top. I assume that's March 11, 2016

Body is a cloudy golden with light head and lacing.

Smell strikes me first as juicy grapefruit. Light pineapple and mango notes. Really like this.

Damn, flavor is a let down. Cardboard and vegetal qualities first and foremost. Light resinous hop flavor on the finish. Slight onion. Taste is faint overall.

Fizzy and prickly at first and then becomes a bit fuller. Feels a bit watery, I'd say.

Not my favorite Omnipollo beer. I guess any brewery can strike out. Gotta wonder how the date impacted this.

Bottle purchased at Oliver's Beverage in Albany, NY.

This pours a bright slightly hazy orange, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing. The lacing kind of looks like a guy with a sword, but I'm guessing that feature is only unique to my pour here.

This smells super juicy, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit, with some herbal and floral character as well.

This tastes really great. It's slightly watery on the finish, but other than, it's a perfectly crushable fruit bomb pale ale. There's a ton of orange and pineapple, with a bit of grapefruit, and some herbal bitterness near the end. It's got an almost gin-like botanical character near the end that's interesting. There's no malt character whatsoever.

This is light bodied, with a very crisp and juicy mouthfeel. This is insanely drinkable.

Another great hoppy masterpiece from Omnipollo, this is up there with the best pale ales I've ever had.

What is the pale ale becoming? Is it something of a drier and less sweet taste? Is it a hoppy beer to resemble IPA? Perhaps it's becoming the taste that the session IPA it trying to become.

Onda pour with a near pilsner-like pale straw color and almost brilliant clarity. Shedding a soft and arid foam, the ale carries a perfume that's zesty with musty lemon and a delicate herbal presence, but to taste, its short honeysuckle sweetness is laced with cracker and faint honey.

The sweetness lifts and the hops project across the middle palate. Facilitated by the eruptive carbonation, the taste is bright as unripe orange, lemon and grapefruit carry a nearly teeth-churning exotic fruit and herb profile. A late and peppery charge is shifting toward bitterness as the beer's botanical character takes hold.

Medium-light on the mouth, the beer is arid, crisp, clean and vibrant. Its soft resins dance delightfully on the throat while an acute bitterness do more than simply balance the malt. Onda is a highly refreshing choice for IPA lovers and those looking for more bite than the stalwart lager.

Poured a murky dark straw color with over two fingers of bubbly white head. The nose is mostly citrus and pine from the mosaic hops but you get a slight hint of biscuit. The flavor is mango more than anything else but you get a little bit of pine bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. The feel is medium with a good amount of carbonation. This is an above average pale ale that is very drinkable and refreshing.

Translucent golden ale with a fine and medium-height head. The smell is very floral and perfumed, with an addition of an acidic and citrusy smell, heavy on the grapefruit. The taste is light bitter with notes of lemon, lemon zest and a lot of grapefruit. Light body and medium carbonation, making for a refreshing drink.

Pale hazy gold, thin skim of frothy white foam.
Aroma is peachy up front, with a little bit of pineapple and herbal botanicals.
Lightly bitter with a punch of herbal hops, lightly citric but not as fruity as the aroma unfortunately. Light bodied and a touch watery, though extremely drinkable. Enjoyed this, though $6.50 a 12 oz is pretty steep. It just sort of signals the need for a Mosaic pale ale in six packs that's less than $40... get on that America.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a very hazy golden straw with a half finger white head with excellent persistence and lacing. Aroma of lemon citrus hops, pineapple, mixed tropical fruit, bready malt; slightly floral. Flavor is lemon and grapefruit rind hops, mild caramel malt, finishes light with mixed citrus fruit rind bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Initial flavor is quite pleasant mixed citrus hops with light mixed fruit, but finishes a bit abruptly, with little malt or hop flavor in the finish, although there is a pleasant citrus rind hop aftertaste. A bit weak in the finish, but a good single variety pale ale that presents the Mosaic hops nicely in a rather neutral malt body.

On tap at Spokeasy Public House

A: Pours hazy golden orange amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves a little light lacing.

S: Dank, herbal, kinda savory, citrus, light tropical and fruity notes, and a little sweetness.

T: Citrus, grapefruit and lemon, hints of tropical fruit and berry, a kinda butterscotch thing that actually works, a bit of pine, and a little light caramel malt sweetness.

M: On the lighter end of medium body, moderate carbonation, very drinkable.

O: Mosaic hops are slowly growing on me, but I think this one needs a little something extra to help push it over the edge. Still enjoyable though.
