3.6/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy orange with a massive head of billowing foam.

Smell is juicy and tropical with notes of mango, pineapple, oranges and hints of apple and pear.

Taste is fruity and a bit boozy. Juicy notes of lemon, oranges, pineapple, pear and vanilla. Soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with very intense carbonation, to the point of stinging the tongue.

Overall, the carbonation puts this down a few pegs. Just way too much of it, and it detracts from the flavor.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Softly opaque body; pastel yellow peach; long lasting thick and creamy head. Powerful notes of mango, kiwi, and fresh cut orange on the nose. Huge biscuit note on the taste, offset with a strong hop bitterness; a bit of citrus tanginess; dull sweetness. Heavy body; thick and velvety; lots of residual sugar and lactose body; very dry overall.

This is a wonderful cloudy IPA, exhibiting stunning eye appeal and an intense, inviting aroma. The taste is very grainy but has some nice counterpoints with the hops and residual sugars. A righteous offering.

With their finger firmly on the pulse of what both hop heads want and those who prefer juice bombs, the Omnipollo team rolls out a New England styled IPA with a name that just rolls off the tongue.

Tetragrammaton pours from the decipherously labeled can with a creamy haziness that suggests white grapefruit juice equipped with extra pulp. Opaque in its style, the nose swoons with citrus, tropical fruit and a full herbal complement that provides a citronella perfume, hemp and fresh grass clippings. Sweet with cereal, milk sugars and honey, the grain sweetness is creamy and firmly of pastry dough.

As the sweetness and creaminess slowly dissolve on the middle palate, it leaves room for the hops to rise with force. Rife with grapefruit juice, a full complement of oranges, mangos, lime and papaya for a all-around taste of tropical fruit punch. Trending slowly herbal, bitter and grassy, the beer's peppery tea characteristics are joined with citrus peels, hemp and chive.

Medium bodied but its lingering creaminess suggest something heavier, the grain sweetness lasts up the finish where the peppery hop resins take the taste into a drying finish with the botanical taste of gin but the light spice of curaƧao liquor into a long and refreshing aftertaste.

I don't see a date listed on the can.

Appearance: The body is opaque and beige with a milky yellow appearance around the edges. The head is thick, medium-large, and has good retention and lacing.

Aroma: There is a soft gummy ring peach candy aroma to the beer, and a hint of confectioner's sugar.

Taste: Mango comes through at first, then there is a bit of bitter grapefruit leading into a slightly grainy taste, which dually occupies the middle of the palate. It has a slight alcohol flavor. It finishes with some alcohol and a bit of grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: It is very smooth and easy to drink. There is a light texture to the beer. It has a mild bitterness.

Overall: This is a very enjoyable beer to drink. While it didn't have a ton of aroma, the aroma was pleasant. Similarly, while the beer felt a bit off-kilter with a heavier presence on grain and alcohol, it had an enjoyable fruitiness. I really enjoyed the beer and I would both drink it again and recommend it.

Someone say hazy? This is a super hazy beer with a bright white head. Nose makes me think of juice, sweet and fresh. Follow through is soft and gentle, then a slight hoppy bite hits. Great beer.

16 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but was just released. Pours opaquely hazy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger dense, creamy, and rocky off white head with amazing retention; that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Amazing appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Slight lingering resins/rinds through the glass. Zero warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is a fantastic NEIPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish; awesomely soft feel. Amazing Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic profile. Extremely juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.
