Notes: Limited (brewed once) availibility. Part of Omnipollo’s biggest collaborative event Omnipolloscope, a synchronized global release two year in the making, collab with Omnipollo, Monkish, Other Half, Crooked Stave, O/O , Stigbergets, Anchorage, Equilibrium and The Veil. Omnipolloscope #5 is our iteration of a soft and smooth Triple IPA featuring heavy doses of Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra, and Nelson Sauvin. Pouring a light orange-yellow color with a heavy milky haze, Omnipolloscope #5 greets the nose with strong aromas of dank, fresh cut grass and layers of bright tropical fruits. Dazzling flavors of pineapple and mango smoothies follow, inundating the palate and swirling together with hints of candied orange, grapefruit pith and sweet vanilla. Full bodied with a pillowy mouthfeel, Omnipolloscope #5 has firm bite that makes for a long and enjoyable finish.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Canned on 06/28/19
Served in a tulip

Hazy, mustard yellow appearance. Slightly shy of cloudy. A thin, bubbly white cap of froth topped the liquid, but it quickly dissolved. Dots of lacing trickled down the glass.

Excellent aroma. Tropical fruit notes dominated. Loads of ripe mango and pineapple. Peach notes were also apparent. Fairly sugary and sweet. Peach candy rings came to mind. Touch of dankness too.

The flavor profile was super fruity and sweet from start to finish. Like in the nose, ripe pineapple came through big time. Loads of juicy mango too. There was a rich, sweet, honey malt quality as well. Citrus was apparent in the center. Juicy orange notes specifically. Ruby red grapefruit appeared on the back end and the finish. Hint of booze and bitterness after the swallow. By the drink’s end, a yeasty hop burn was also noticeable.

The mouthfeel was somewhat lighter bodied for the style and contained a fine, gentle effervescence. Perhaps a touch nondescript. After a few sips, the sugars in the beer left a slightly sticky film on my lips.

I have a pretty high threshold for sweet and boozy hoppy beers, but this one was even too much for me. Omnipolloscope #5 might be enjoyable in small doses, but finishing a 16 ounce can in a sitting was definitely a chore. This beer again proves the theory that the more breweries who collaborate on a Trillium release, the more likely it is not going to succeed.

Canned 06/28/19, 11:40:12. From the Trillium location on release day.

The color on this beer is beautiful. Mango nectar gold, opaque and with small amounts of frothy white foam that rises up. Settles softly, with that golden color almost glowing in the light.

Dank, pithy hops create a great balance to the predominance of tropical fruits on the nose. Mango and pineapple really stand out, with mildly bitter, mildly sweet grapefruit. A touch of grassiness in the finish.

Big, bold, and sweet on the palate. A resurgence of those tropical fruit and grapefruit flavors, with lemon candy, mandarin orange, and piney/lightly malty hops in the finish. Very well-balanced.

The mouthfeel on this is great as well, with a good pith from the hops leaving a mild bitterness to contrast the abundant pillowy softness. Full bodied, with a good residual mouth-coating and warm booze as it goes down.

Had on tap at the Trillium beer garden. Orange juice-like opaque orange color with fluffy head and lacing. Strong scents of citrus zest and freshly squeezed orange juice. Loads of tropical fruit flavors- lots of citrus and pineapple up front and finishes really smoothly and pillowy with mango band papaya. Super creamy mouthfeel. Glad I got a chance to try this epic collaboration beer.

Nose is grapefruit with pineapple and papaya and mango. Taste follows with pithy grapefruit and pineapple sweetness and finishes with creamy papaya and mango. The finish stays for a good while with that honey mango and papaya. Solid carb and medium to full body. Overall a fun collab.

On draft in canton.

Pineapple looking juice.

Nose brings a slightly burnt resin.

Taste is rather subdued. Somewhat tropical. Light on flavor for me. The mouthfeel falls rather flat for me as well. Thick, but no bounce to it.

Canned 5 days ago.

L -- Very hazy pale golden orange body with a half finger of white head produced with moderate pour. Minimal retention or lacing
S -- Explosive aromatics of pineapple, mango, papaya, apricot, red grapefruit, green onion, diesel/rubber
T -- Largely follows the nose. Flavors are expectedly quite sweet yet the flavor nuances are still fairly discernable
F -- Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Sweet and a little abrasive on the palate but much better than Trillium's usual TIPAs
O -- The gimmickiness of all these collaborators really epitomizes some of the most obnoxious aspects of the craft beer industry at the moment. Otherwise decent brew

Cloudy gold with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells amazingly tropical, citrusy and dank with flavor notes of mango smoothies, pineapple, candied orange, grapefruit pith, and sweet vanilla. Medium full bodied, smooth and creamy. Really great beer!
