Purchased cold - Can BBE 2/13/18 "BE THE BEER YOU WANT TO SEE" - Poured into an English Pub glass

L - Pours a moderately hazed orange-amber color, with a very finely foamed 1 finger bone white head. Rapidly dissipating leaving a thin veil on the top with a delicate ring around the edge of the glass. Big thick lines of lacing as it goes down. As it settled there was lots of visible sediment as if the beer had separated way ahead of its best before date.

S - Bready malt, nearly indiscernible citrus and a whiff of pine.

T - Subtly sweet caramel malts, with tropical citrus and dank pine. Awkward mix of sweetness and bitterness in the lingering aftertaste.

F - Medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

O - The can itself is gorgeous, but the top is entirely painted black, on one of the 2 cans I cracked to review I had actual strips of paint in my beer. Between the paint chips coming into the beer from opening it and the visible separation of the beer itself well before the BBE date, this beer really put me off. Having said all that, I'm even more put off by the taste. Who thinks of an IPA and then makes it heavily caramel malt forward? I get it, Omnipollo are very experimental but this is just an absolute shit show of a beer.

Pours a fairly heavy tangerine hue, head disappears almost instantly with no legs. Very sweet nose with lots of candy and Florida citrus. Smooth mouth feel especially for a IIPA, Very little bite. Sticky finish with alcohol lingering. Really not much going on flavor wise. It's a smooth DIPA, but nothing impressive as far as complexity or flavor.

A - Hazy amber colour with a lovely thick frothy head that lasts for good long while.

S - Citrus and some light caramel. A little pine as well.

T - Pine and resin. Some malt, flowery notes, grapefruit rind and a fairly bitter finish. Not tasting much of the citrus that I expected from the nose.

M - Medium body and decent carbonation.

O - A little too bitter on the finish for my liking. I prefer a little more balance.

16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy and cloudy burnt golden; small white head that fades leaving nice retention and lacing. The aromas are subtle with hints of pine, spruce, mint and grapefruit. Mild hints of caramel. Malt aromas are there. The flavors follow the nose for the most part. Nice earthy hop bitterness. Lots of pine needles and pine sap. Hints of rye and black pepper. It's slightly spicy. Some citrus in the mix. Malts are there, but the hop bitterness steals the show. Finishes juicy and dry at the same time. Alcohol goes unnoticed for the most part, but it still drinks big. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with active carbonation. It's ultimately dangerously drinkable.

This is an alright DIPA. It's well crafted, but almost seems one dimensional. It's more of an "old school" DIPA, in my opinion, which is fine. It's still enjoyable and fun to drink.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of light floral hoppy notes with some lightly sweet malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also a good mix between some floral hoppy notes with some lightly sweet malt backbone notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration. Hops profile was not as powerful as expected but still enjoyable overall.
