Pours a very hazy golden orange color with over a finger of an off-white head.

Aroma is definitely suggests that this one has some age on it. I do get a good amount of sweet orange (like orange marmalade), some pine, grass, and lots of herbal (tea-like) notes from the hops; however, there is a significant amount of a bready and sweet, sugary malt too.

Taste starts with lots of bready malt and carmel sweetness, along with some light orange and herbal notes. The orange note becomes stronger into the middle and takes on an orange marmalade flavor to go with more herbal notes and sweet bready malt. Finish dries out the beer nicely and brings with it lots of pine resin bitterness and sweet orange.

Medium body. Smooth carbonation and creamy. An oily and sticky finish.

Although this one undeniably has some age on it, I cannot hold that against them being overseas. Despite the age, this one has some nice hop flavors and is balanced wonderfully. I can tell that a fresh version of this would be awesome.

Malt forward but nice. It's good but just not my jam. Awesome looking pour, great head retention and nice lacing. It's a bit dull as far as flavor goes and the hop can't come out like I wish it would but it's not bad.

Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a hazy, cloudy golden orange color with, with a half inch head, and tons of lacing.

Smells like orange, pineapple, and pine, with a really strong herbal and earthy aroma as well.

This is definitely a unique IPA. It's really really herbal, marijuana, tea, and pine, with some fruitiness as well, your typical blend of grapefruit and orange, some pineapple, too. It's got a really bitter finish, and the finishing taste is a little bit soapy, which detracts slightly.

This has a pretty thick mouthfeel, creamy and slightly soapy/slick, with a moderate level of carbonation.

An interesting IPA from Omnipollo, but definitely not perfect.

Pours a beautiful, hazy orange color, with a big, bubbly very long lasting head.

Has an utmost fruity nose, defined by incredibly juicy orange, getting wrapped up by grass, crisp lemon, gently balanced by sweeter toffee malts. The hops unfold a perfumy, floral quality, blending flawlessly into the omnipresent orange, with a lurking yeast skunkiness underneath, adding to the malts.

Has a medium carbonation, while the beer provides an extreme hoppiness, revealing a pungent hop burn on the tongue, successfully balanced by an otherwise very creamy mouthfeel. It remains pleasantly drinkable throughout, with a medium bodied, dank refreshment to it.

Tastes of cakey malts, while its initial sweetness vanishes immediately to a minimum, balancing effectivly the uprising hop onslaught. While beginning with a soothing herbal quality, hops unfold a huge load of crisp lemon pulp, producing instantly a bold bitterness, coated up by wet grass and a note of pine. This subtle sweet hint is enough to build a bridge for a more profound maltiness, while maintaining an outstandingly smooth mouthfeel. This leads to a long lasting, ripe orange juice quality, accompanied by water melon, kiwi and a dank dryness, leaving the palate in a very clean fashion.

While producing a breathtaking depth, as for its juicy hop profile, the beers mouthfeel is outstanding. It exhibits an immense taste intensity without giving any clue about its higher alcohol content. Its soft creaminess, mellowed even more by a profound dank quality, coates up the taste very effectivly, creating a fantastic beer.

On-tap 11/6/2015 at Natty Greeneā€™s Tavern, in North Attleboro, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, caramelized malts and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Very nice. Appearance is a large fluffy thick head with a lot of lace. Flavor is a huge bittersweet hop malt soft textured delight. Super easy going down.

Opalescent bright yellow golden colour with a fluffy pretty large white head offering excellent lacings. Aromas of fruit, grapefruit, lime, sugared oat, mango and pine develop. Exciting on the nose and expectations rise before the first sip. Lovely fine carbonation, lightly slick and a harmonically elegant structured body. Some bright sweetness up front with more fruityness in the centre building the bitter backbone on the back of the palate. Short fruity finish asking for another sip. Quaffable and interesting.

this is about 3 months old based on the cap. The aroma and hop bite are still strong. I think I prefer the Fatamorgana, but this is very good.
