Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 8.5%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Hoppy aroma. Distinctly hoppy flavour, minty and rather bitter finish.

473 mL can from the LCBO; dated Nov 28 2019 and served barely chilled. Brewed at the Brunswick Bierworks in Toronto for the Canadian market.

Pours a hazy goldenrod colour, sporting one finger of bubbly, soapy white head that settles off within the next several minutes; it leaves behind a creamy-looking collar and an attractive coat of arching lace. Pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit and mango come through on the nose, with additional hints of syrupy stone fruit, pine resin, caramelized malts and a touch of booze.

Tasty. Grapefruit and orange are apparent from the get-go, with notes of passion fruit, apricot, mango, and pineapple not far behind. The back end has a fair bit of floral hops, as well as some pithy, resiny, earthy bitterness. Medium-full in body, with average carbonation levels that provide gentle bite to this brew's otherwise, slick, smooth, oily mouthfeel.

Final Grade: 4.23, an A-. Omnipollo's Nebuchadnezzar is an IPA fan's IPA - which sounds dumb reading it back to myself, but I stand by my awkwardly-phrased proclamation. An amalgamation of a DIPA and an NEIPA, leaning perhaps a little more towards the former, as its bitterness is pronounced, and the 8.5% abv is a constant background presence. But that's not to discount the juicier, fruitier hop contributions, nor the robust malt backing that supports it all - and for a 4-month old IPA, it's drinking fantastically. Very strongly recommended.

pours a pale clouded straw color with a 3 finger white cap...aroma s are of floral-citrus with sweet malts oily mouthfeel for a canned beer...tastes like a juicy east coast IPA but smooth and silky...musty...earthy...grainy sweetness...long rounded wet finish with hop intensity growing and a bitter after taste....alcohol is completely hiddenin this intense canned brew...very decent canned 2xIPA

I only tried a couple IPA's to find something that sticks but so far I've had no luck, this particular one tastes like raw dandelion with some honey, and that's just something I'm not too keen on, I will keep looking and expanding my palette.

This is a beautiful beer. Hazy golden colour, no residue and a gorgeous white head that has good retention.
Not overall bitter and it hides it’s ABV well.
I do however find it very sweet with a honey aftertaste and very little citrus.

One of the best beers I've had in a while. This can was brewed and packed in Toronto Ontario.

Pours a hazy gold with a tight frothy white head that lingers and laces the glass beautifully. Aromas of pink grapefruit pith, blood orange peel, slight pine, taste is similar, slight boozy finish, impact quite high, bitter pine aftertaste that lingers a while. Very well balanced overall an incredible tasting beer.

Pours a uniformly hazy straw colour with thick white head which fades moderately slowly; little lacing upon drinking. Nice hop aroma; a touch more on the spicy/malt side than fruity. Taste follows with grassy/spice leading the way for the hops with some sweet malt, clove, stone fruit, full smooth malt flavours & mouthfeel. I've only had a few Omnipollo beers & I've liked them all. I certainly wouldn't know what to call this if ordering it out, but it's a hell of a great zebra looking can & I would definitely enjoy again.

This one has a pale, orange hue with abundant head and lacing. However it is not hazy as many NE IPAs are. Smells of citrus and melon. Tastes of orange and honeydew. Good carbonation. Good hop bitterness, but as you would expect, not overpowering. Overall not bad but I would like to see a larger citrus burst.

Looks like Tang. Not quite hazy, not quite clear but with that distinctive orange hue. Very nice and lush nose of over ripe melon and mango. A bit of burnt ripe fruit on the palate but I mean that in an appreciative way. In a way it reminds be of bananas Foster which is flambed. I also detect a little toasted marshmallow and a pleasant blend of hop and malt. Feels nice in the mouth too. Nice find on this one.

Not a NEIPA in my mind but whatever. Starts off a bit harsh with some boozy overtones but actually gets better as it warms. A bit sweet but ultimately works. I would have again but would not seek out.

Unknown vintage; drank 7/3/15 @ the Family Compound.

Opaque dandelion appearance.

Huge off-white head; frothy, tree-rung lace.

Mild funk & orange citrus notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Mild orange citrus, dandelion & faint fresh-cut grass flavors; no booze heat. Nicely balanced.

16oz can (American brewed version) into a tulip.

Look: Very slightly opaque golden orange, finger-width head that dissipates quickly but leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: Not super complex on the nose, some orange and maybe a little tropical fruit?
Taste: Orange/citrus upfront with some sweetness from the malt, and plenty of hoppy dankness on the back end which lingers.
Feel: On the thinner side of medium bodied, but still nice. Not too sticky
Overall: It's got a lot going on while still being pretty straightforward. Amazingly refreshing for an 8.5%er
