3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a nice, fluffy, off white head. Lemon, lemongrass, a bit tangy, straw aroma. Refreshing, a bit chewy yeasty, lemon meringue, somewhat bready, hay, somewhat floral hoppy flavor with a mildly bitter, lemon finish. Quite easy to drink and I’m sure it would have even been a bit better fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Bottle from State Line, 10/25/12
Aroma: It has a nice fresh hop nose of grapefruit, peach, pine, grass, and resin
Appearance: It pours a dark gold-orange color with a thick foamy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes more bitter and less fruity then the nose, with a light sweetness and a fairly heavy bitterness
Palate: Medium-plus bodied, feels fairly sticky and a little creamy, with a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
I actually quite enjoyed this one. This is my first beer from Omnipollo, and I’m glad to have tried it. It was quite a tasty IPA, with a really nice hop presence and some nice citrus undertone. Certainly worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma is underwhelming, kinda fruity, faint caramel malt in the background, floral piney hops. Taste is floral hops, some citrus a bit of sweet malt, and then it finishes with a very long lingering bitter finish, it really hangs around on the palate for quite some time, bitter grapefruit and a bit of resin and pine, dry. Would really like to find the black ipa version if I can. Decent but not worth the 10 bucks I paid for it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden amber with a small white head that leaves little to no lacing. Aroma of hops, caramel and apricot. Taste is pine, hops, apricot and other fruits. Pretty basic IPA, didn’t blow my mind.

Pours a cloudy yellow look with average white head. Aroma full of hops, citrus, pine, grass and grapefruit. Fruity taste, yet malty. Refreshing, spiced and very bitter. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation ans a nice long bitter after taste. Gooood.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good white head with lacerings, over hazy orange beer. Flowery, dry hosp. Bit cakey, raisins, blossoms. Very bitter, hoppy flavour. Faint exotic fruit. Finish goes towoards quiinine-like bitterness, mixed with rosewater. Spritzy, very dry; dry-out effect as from tannins. Bit raw, crude in character. I’ve had better IPA’s for sure, and the black version is more accomplished.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flavor is dry piney and citrus hops, citrus juice and slight malt. Long, slightly astringent hop finish that is still enjoyable because of the somewhat complex flavors of the hops. Medium bodied with a hint of creaminess. I
