Gaultier (748) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2015

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle, 8.5%. Mild citric hop aroma, hint of mango. Hazy golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour starts off quite bitter. Stays dry until the finish. Has a decent citrus flavour but is not really juicy. I would have liked a bit more sweetness to counter the bitterness and alcohol.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy orangeish amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and citrus, with notes of fruit and malt. Intense, bitter, hoppy flavour with a good deal of fruit, orange peel and malt. Estery hints towards the finish. Smooth and bitterish afteraste. Well-balanced and enjoyable, although not very typical of the style - rather dry. A nice one.

dresden (1070) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Considering this is well before the best before date, it’s fair to rate it I guess. Fruity hop aroma, but a think bitter malty beer with very unbalanced flavour. This is definitely of but it did not do so well getting there

portableparty (2010) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a pale hazy orange with a thin white foamy head that leaves a thin film. Aroma is bitter resin spice yeast soft sweet caramel. Taste is very bitter hops of citrus lemon pepper spice yeast. Palate is medium with fizzy carbonation.

Kauge (565) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle from a Systembolaget in Stockholm. BB 17.12.2016. Too bad this was the only (not including the APA) Omnipollo I found while in Stockholm... Anyway. It pours a surprisingly light amberish-orangeish colour, the head’s average in size, off-white, nicely retaining and lacing. Lots of small bits in the second pour. The aroma is... cat pee. Then some more cat pee, and... did I mention cat pee? The pervert in me likes it... Also, tropical fruits, bitter resin and sweet malts on second fiddle. Taste is sweet and bitter... Way too unbalanced towards the extreme bitterness. Alcohol kinda hidden but I know it’s there. Carbonation above average for a DIPA. Needs more body, more thickness and sweetness to balance out the burning sensations... - I imagine some folks enjoying this, but then again, some folks enjoy cutting themselves too. Overall? A fckn robust DIPA, among the most unrefined and unenjoyable I’ve had.

brontebeach (169) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
I like this beer - good bitterness, gooseberry nose, off white head that can be enlivened by a few swirls of the glass. Hides its strength well and leaves a pleasant tangy aftertaste.

50belair (2804) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Clear yellow with a white head. Lots of grapefruit hop aromas. Plenty of grapefruit hop notes. Good body and mouthfeel.

330ml bottle - shared by ElviraS - thanks!
Total catpiss aroma, acidic and zesty. Hazy pale orange, small brief head, sticky lacing. Better in the mouth. Full, sweet, a little sugary, bitter bite too. Caramelly malts, some old socks, catpiss all through the mouth, zesty acidic hops. Finish long, acidic and bitter. Another "never mind the quality, feel the quantity" IIPA. Snore.
