Picked this up the other day in Truckee bc I found it refrigerated. I've dug Omnipollo's pastry stout stuff, but was always hesitant to buy their stuff off the warm, undated shelves at Total Wine.

Pours a light orange color with 1/4" off white head. Aroma hit some generic citrus notes.

Taste was more of the mixture of orange, grapefruit and forest. Pretty standard in terms of American ipa, it had the high hop volume, a biscuit and crystal malt like contingent that wasn't as heavy or sticky as lesser dipas would be in this circumstance.

At the end of the day, its a good beer that does nothing novel, its really just like that fan art appreciation. Swedish brewery does a beer very similar to typical American versions. Up to you if you want to pay a premium for such a thing. I think I'll just keep paying a lesser amount for as good or better, fresher, more local beer. But a good effort.

Served in a tulip glass from the can (drinking the American version).

Appearance: Cloudy yellow to amber color with medium bubbles to the body with a white head rising almost one finger's length off the body. Sticky lacing on the glass but settles quick after two or three sips.

Smell: Light citrus scent with and a raw hop aroma but dissipates quickly.

Taste: Sweet citrus skin with a feel of pink grapefruit and light floral feel. Complicated taste with a punch of orange carcass which makes the beer oh so smooth.

Mouth: Sticky not overwhelming. Carbonation is medium with thirst quenching type of feel. Body is medium at best considering the other IIPAs I have had.

Overall: Good brew, definitely would pick it up again if it crosses my eyes. Wehn i bought it there was only one on the shelf but definitely a repeat for me. Salud!

Poured from a pint can.

Have you ever seen one of those composite photos that shows the average face of, say, men or North America, or women in Belgium, or cats in Costa Rica? Whatever. That's what this beer is. It's a composite. It's every IPA you've ever had. There is nothing that stands out at all out Nebuchadnezzar, except perhaps the number of tries it took to spell correctly.

Pours an almost clear yellow with a nice white head that fade quickly to a ring.
Citrus and stone fruit aroma. Taste follows with a spicy, bitter finish. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. In a world flooded with DIPA's this one will be erased from my memory soon, I didn't even like the can.

I CAN't seem to get enough Omnipollos today as The CANQuest (tm) just keeps rolling along! The approved pic is for a bottle, but I have a pretty zebra CAN.

From the CAN: "Imperial India Pale Ale".

I was anxious to CANduct the Crack! since my zebra was likewise anxious. It was pretty unremarkable so I kept up the trend with a slow, gentle Glug that still resulted in just under two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny head. My zebra & I watched as it slowly faded into wisps, leaving nice lacing behind. Color was a faintly hazy Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose was more traditional with notes of pine and caramel as well as some outright heat. Zebra laughed at me. Mouthfeel was big, full & creamy. Yes! I have grown weary of namby-pamby DIPAs that do not understand that they are supposed to be bigly by virtue of their style. The taste was a pleasant admixture of peach, pine, grapefruit, passion fruit and biscuit malt. The downside of this pleasantness was that it was far too easy to drink! Beers of this caliber should be harsh & tough so as to keep reprobates like me from sucking them down. Finish was semi-dry, but still too drinkable to be safe. I especially enjoyed the lingering peach flavor & you may also. YMMV.

Various Scandinavians have done many wonderful things with the American IPA paradigm and this is another. Looks lovely with a strong head and nice warm straw color, though not much lace. Aroma is rich and pungent, full of grapefruit, peach and caramel. The taste takes off from there, white pepper blending subtlety with the grapefruit, sweet, strong honey malts expanding and fruity hop tones blasting around in all directions. Crisp feel with a little fluffiness. Yum.
