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

Pours a nearly clear golden orange with one finger off white head. Aroma a wallop of orange-mango, some sweet caramel malt - a touch of dankness in the back. Initial taste hits with the sweet maltiness followed quickly by orange, mango, over ripe pineapple and distinct piney hoppy bitterness that sits on the palate - never over the top but never dissipating, finishing with a bittersweet thickness coating the mouth that is quite delightful.

Pours gold with sediment floating. Aroma is stone fruits and hints of alcohol. Taste is similar, but pretty straightforward and not very complex. Feel is light-medium carbonated. Overall - good, but nothing to really remember. My least favorite of the three I've tried from Omnipollo.

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.

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

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.

On tap at Argosy in Atlanta.

I had heard much about this beer, but was disappointed. Either way I looked at, either by style (way off) or just plain old how it tastes to me, its not an above average beer that does not appeal to me. Not a drain pour by any means. A bit sour, which cancels any hop bitterness.

Picked this up on a trip to Louisville.

A: a hazy pale yellow with a white head.

S: lots of juicy grapefruit and some pine, orange peel rounding out the aroma.

T: tropical fruits, citrus, orange, honey and a touch of juniper.

M: medium light in body, with moderate carbonation.

O: overall pretty damn good. A touch boozy...

Pours slightly hazy and golden. Head is white with little lacing. Nose is sweet and so is the taste. The follow through is very floral. Slightly bitter on the back end as well.

Served in 12oz Teku. Poured a lightly hazy honey gold color with 1-1/4 inch of of white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma was mostly floral hops , with a light grain scent in the background.

The flavor profile was very similar, with the sweet hops blending nicely with the earthy grain.

The body was medium, maybe a touch on the fuller side, was smooth, and had a neutral finish.

Drinkability was OK, I finished my pour easily enough, but I wsn't left wanting another. Overall, a decent enough brew, worth trying if you see it.

Had this on draft and was disappointed. Thought that the IBU of 100 would be interesting but it was a let down. To me it was more like a 35 IBU. It was a cloudy light amber with little head. A pint of this is all I wanted. Time to move on to something else.

A pounder can into a tulip appears hazy copper with white head.

The aroma is a little poopy like diapers - sulfur and grass faintly.

The taste is mineral laden with a fruity pulp/pine resin bitterness.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. I appreciate my friend giving me a can of this to try, but its not something I need to have again.

Nebuchadnezzar, from a can brewed by Twelve Percent LLC. Fun.

It pours like a soft glowing light bulb. Yellow and slightly opaque, but brighter than anything else around. It has a nicely paired soft looking white head, which manages to cover the surface and post thin lines of lace that mimic the can art.

This smells wonderful. Like a true grapefruit and pine sappy double IPA that has been infused gently with tropical fruits. Passionfruit, guava, grapefruit, and pine.

The aroma transcends into the flavors very well. Yet seem to be on a much more level playing field. The grapefruit actually takes on more of an orange juice flavor, while the tropical notes and pine stay consistent. There is a touch of alcohol detection in the flavor, but not too distracting. What is distracting is an interesting peanut aftertaste that seems to declare its presence, especially when warmed

Pretty damn drinkable, this is. Smooth, and somewhat crisp even. The softer carbonation is nice, but the alcohol warmth and lack of bitterness don't do it any favors in my opinion.

While a good beer, I'm convinced this may be an original vs. contract brewed argument. I've never had the original, but if this is any indication of how good it is, I'd like to try it. However, I don't think I'll be buying another can of this. Skol!

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a IPA style glass. The body of the beer is orange-amber in color. The head dissipated quickly, a disappointment for an Imperial IPA. A fruity mouth watering aroma rose from the glass. The first taste didn't disappoint with citrusy juiciness and a mildly bitter crisp finish. An expensive product ($15 for 4 pack) brewed under contract at Two Roads in Stratford, CT. It's very good, and worth trying (voted Best Swedish Beer by several organizations in Europe), but I have had better DIPAs at a cheaper price point, and the lack of a good head always bothers me.

Orange with a quickly fading, white head that left a random dot of lacing. Smells like oranges and flowers with some booze. Tastes sweet and floral with a great bitter finish. This is a really decent beer.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on February 10, 2018. Look is bright orange with a thick off-white head and lingering lacing. Aroma is light but the taste makes up for it. Light to medium in body with a smooth finish. Recommended.

Deep, golden yellow, with a viscous, hazy appearance. Poured with a short, soapy, bright white foam with low retention. Medium, sweet, fruity, over-ripe orange aromas, stone fruit, medium malt and biscuity notes. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Slightly thick and oily feel up front turning creamy through the middle with pleasant boozy heat that gets a little prickly at the finish. Sweet dark fruit and light spicy flavors up front followed over-ripe orange. Solid malt backbone throughout with light biscuit notes, similar to aroma. Medium bitterness through the middle followed by spicy notes and sweet malt. Finished semi-dryly with a touch of boozy warmth, earthy, spicy hops and burst of mellow bitterness that slowly faded. Pretty tasty, solid hop character nicely balanced with light fruit and solid malt flavors.

Canned best before date if 03/10(?)/18

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden yellow in color with an off-white, half finger's width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a razor thin ring around the edge of the glass. A small handful of tiny dots make up the sparse lacing.

Smell - Citrusy and slightly grassy with lesser spice and a hint of bready malt sweetness riding beneath.

Taste - Lightly citrusy with a hint of pineapple. Some grapefruit juice flavor begins to develop as it warms. Mild bready undertone. Grassy bitterness cuts through mid-taste and hangs in the finish along with some pithy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a lightly crisp and dry finish.

Overall - A pretty good IPA, but for the price I doubt I'd buy it again.

Best by date of 3/27/18

Hazy orange-gold , ample white head and lacing, with a few floaties.

Aroma is light cracker, a bit of bread dough, floral, and faint, unidentifiable, fruitiness.

Flavor is lemon candy , dried orange peel, dried grapefruit, persimmon - but tart , and some pine bitterness as it warms .

Lightly oily, with moderate, fine carbonation on the finish .

Overall , good, not great. I would gladly imbibe any time, though it wouldn't be near the top of the list , if I had any choice. Worth a try.

Tap

Pours slightly hazy straw golden. White head is a quarter inch and retains well.

Smells of fresh citrus, orange and lemon, with some passionfruit and a grapefruit and herbal hop finish.

Tastes of orange, pineapple, and biscuit with a grapefruit hop finish. Some nondescript herbal notes in the finish.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Pretty great IPA actually, very nice bright flavor and aroma. Walks the line between a NEIPA and a west coast IPA with good elements of both schools of thought. I hope to have a chance to have this again.

L: Slightly hazy, transparent dark gold with a creamy white head. Medium retention, the head dying down after a few minutes and leaving a thin film. The film leaves some sticky lacing behind.

S: Sweet citrus candy--lemonade powder, lemon/lime candy, candied orange peel, lemongrass. A bit of peach.

T: Lemon, lime, and orange candy. Powdered lemonade. Some mild peach and honeydew melon. A nice pop of bitterness upfront. Simple cracker malt, slightly toasty. Lemongrass and slight dankness on the back end. Finishes slightly sweet but with balancing bitterness, and lingering flavors of orange peel and lemongrass.

F: Medium-plus, moderately carbonated, smooth, well-rounded. Finishes slick and sticky with both hop oils and residual sugars. Alcohol is just slightly warm going down.

O: A solid DIPA somewhere in the West Coast-Plus territory, a citrus-candy DIPA.
