omnipollo x monkish x trillium x other half x cellarmaker x o/o x strigbergets x anchorage x crooked stave x the veil x equilibrium omnipolloscope #5 fatamosiacddhdreamatomicdobishredder triple india pale ale - brewed at other half, 10% abv. this was released as part of a worldwide collaboration that had around thirty breweries making their version of one of five beers and releasing them at the same time as they offered the other four on tap. other half made a version of the big ipa of course, and the whole thing was so confusing that the staff at other half didn’t know where the two other beers they still had by the time I got over there were made. the purple sour was fine, and the low abv sour they were serving from a slurpee machine was a lot better than the other omnipollo beer (or any beer I guess) I’ve had from a slurpee machine. anyways... this is a really nice modern triple ipa that has a great combination of citrus, tropical fruit, and sweetness, (orange, tangerine, mango, vanilla, papaya, etc) that’s really rich and juicy in a way that other half usually has to use lactose to pull off. this is far from the revelation that some of their early beers were, and I can’t believe that omnipollo is younger than finback and other half (and my son), blah blah, but this is actually towards the top of the heap of the many, many similar beers I’ve had over the last few years.
