Style: Imperial IPA (White)
3.2 5 0 1
Grabbed a can of this in a rush through the beer store while trying to stock up from the COVID-19 lockdown, and saw that it was an Omnipollo beer which I've only had a few -- and some of which were incredible, one being an Other Half NEIPA collab a few years ago. It was one of my favorite collabs in a long time. So, I decided to try this one out, but it didn't quite hit the mark for me.
A fluffy, creamy NEIPA
Appearance5/5 GreatVery light yellow, a little cloudy, like a foggy lemon drop covered window with a nice initial white head that dissipated quickly.
Smell1/5 MehA little hint of dank resinous pine, but overall not much going on in the aroma department. Kind of malty smelling.
Taste3/5 AverageDank, piney, a little bitter with some citrus at the front with some alcohol burn in the back. Overall a very strong representation of a West Coast Imperial IPA
Mouthfeel4/5 GoodA little thin, but with some cling to your mouth protein, it kind of rolls off your tongue and then stings you like a bee.
Overall3/5 AverageThis wasn't the greatest beer I've had from Omnipollo, granted I've only had a few, but it looks like they tried to copy a specific style with their creative tweaks (as they're known for in a quirky marketing way) with the "white" approach, likely white wheat malt and either pils or 2-row, maybe a little bit of oats or flaked wheat. This was really just too dank for me, and without any nose to it, that made it fall flat. I'm sure it would be much better fresh.
