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.

16oz can. Pours a slightly cloudy brownish orange with a small amount of head. Some lacing. The aroma is sweet bread and grapefruit. Some sweet pine as well as peach. The taste is light grapefruit and peach with some sweet malts and grassy hops towards the end. Grapefruit finish. Medium body. Slight alcohol burn. Something I would buy once in a while.

Poured into a tall tulip.
The appearance was a semi-dark edged out glossy bronzed copper to yellow color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that concaved inward to leave some nice legwork of the lace running here and there.
The aroma had a nice weaving some light danky sweet qualities running into some sweet black cherries, light pine, and a light grassy hoppy bookends. Developing grapefruit as it warms
The flavor seemed to develop to a substantial bittersweet quality of the cherries to the pine with the dankiness and grassy hoppiness. Grapefruit came out as it warmed. Nice aftertaste of the dankiness and cherries.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt good, substantial. ABV felt on par with a substantial harsh bitter grip right before the finish occurred with a fair mobile sweet cherry quality there.
Overall, pretty nice DIPA and I dig that extra "cherry" quality in this to make it a bit different than what I'm used to trying.

Batch 2, can from ABV.

A mildly hazy orange with a dense, off-white head with good retention and decent lacing, this looks solid The nose is bright, fruity and juicy, with mango, peach, passionfruit and clementines. Malt character is minimal, as is bitterness - this is all about the fruity hops. The palate opens very fruity and quite juicy, but still very clean - not really pulpy, just... hoppy. Peach and mango with clementine, a little guava and even a little melon and passionfruit are all present. Medium-light in body, softly carbonated with a long, fruity finish, alcohol is quite well hidden here. Excellent.

Refreshing, semi clear, dark golden amber color. Great hop flavor. Slight bitterness and after taste. Has a bite to it, 8.5% abv. Worth a try if you dig Imperial IPAs.

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.
