UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 Bottle. Pours unclear orange with average, mostly lasting white head. Aroma has strong floral notes, citrus, grapefruit and spices. Taste is well-balanced, light sweet and medium to heavy bitter, floral, with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, mango and some resin. Long, but pleasant citrusy bitter finish. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. Tasty and quite impressive representative of the style, dangerously easily drinkable. Turboninja (710) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2016

, Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with dry slightly sour fruits, resin and some hops. Darker yellow color with small, natural white head. Averagely hazy liquid. Strong, full, almost too vivid taste with overaged, dry fruits, resin, a lot of hops. Some citrus and a hint of soft, milky notes. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with fruits. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, quite superb DIPA combining nicely American sweet nuances and bitter aromas making it more refreshing. Still, a huge amount of different tastes is almost too much.
At Gollem’s Swedish Beerweekend in Antwerp. Very thick, dense, egg-white, tightly lacing head over a hazy orange blonde beer with ochre-ish hue. Aroma of dried grapefruit peel, biscuit, chestnut even, dried onion, dry cardboard, hay, old apples, lemon zest, pine resin, ’oude jenever’, some dried mango. Fruity onset, clean with hints of dried mango, orange, kiwi and passion fruit, sweet and sourish, fizzy carbonation but still smooth and ’full’ mouthfeel. Somewhat bready malt middle with a biscuit touch, supporting a long hop bitter finish, grapefruity and hayish, floral too, but not as ’lush’ and tropical as in many contemporary IIPAs, peppery and even a bit earthy, accompanied by warming, gin-like alcohol. Aromatic enough, but not as overwhelming as many other IIPAs, probably because of the bottle’s age - I expect a stronger ’American’ aroma from something dry-hopped with Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus. Nevertheless an impressive beer, enjoyed it a lot. bibop49 (39) - NANTES, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2016
Une odeur céréalière & résineuse doublé d’un arome de malt prononcé, une apparance orangée trouble mais d’une très belle robe, au niveau du gout on retrouve le pamplemousse et le coté résineux malté au palais on ressent l’alcool mais ça passe tout seul, une merveille! ipabr (216) - Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Pineapple pine woody smells. Oooh the taste is a bit of a rollercoaster ride, quite sweet and resiny. Smell grows on me after the taste. Yeah a good ipa, not harsh for abv

Finally got around to reviewing this absolute classic.
2 finger white head that leaves great lacing on the glass.
Very hazy, deep orange coloured beer.
Aroma is wonderful. Fresh orangejuice, pineapples, grapefruit and some spicyness aswell.
Taste is lots of grapefruit & orange bitterness just assaulting your mouth, along with some of that aforementioned pineapple in the backend aswell as some breadyness at the very back.
It?s a big, big, palatedominating beer but also very delicious and drinkable so be careful with this one. Oily on the palate but not thick.
Simply put, one of the best DIPAs out there in my opinion as one would except from Omnipollo.
