Omnipollo / Mikrofonbryggeriet / Morgandagens / Dugges Neophyte Tropic Lollipop IIPA American Double / Imperial IPA at 8.8% ABV (C$9.58 at Collective, 330 ml, best before 11-Dec-2019, acquired 28-May-2019, reviewed 12-Jun-2019)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: candy berries, citrus, dank pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium-full body tending slightly syrupy, moderate carbonation, off-dry lightly tart warming lingering bitter finish. (4/5)

Restrained sweetness and surprisingly well-balanced on the tongue, given the sweet, Jolly Rancher-style aromas. The finish is an interesting combination of a lingering bitter and a warm-verging-on-hot booziness cut by a light tartness. (16/20)

8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
