Omnipollo Nebuchadnezzar Imperial/Double IPA at 8.5% ABV
Pours slightly hazy pale to deep gold with three fingers of loose, foamy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, spotty lacing. Nose is grapefruit, mango, caramel malt, slight floral. Taste is mild to moderate sweet rapidly overtaken by intense pine resin bitter. Relatively light body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a dry bitter finish.
Really good IIPA – almost splits the difference between English and American hops as flavour goes, but the intensity is everything you’d expect from a 100 IBU brew. The high ABV is completely integrated and very, very sneaky. Definitely more-ish.
