Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing x Omnipollo
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: India Pale Ale with grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, raspberry and blueberry added. Brewed for Evil Twin Brewing by Dorchester Brewing Company
Brewer Description: (from can) A refreshing drink often associated with childhood nostalgia to others a pop-cultural symbol of female emancipation. Whatever the association we teamed up with two Swedes, Henok and Karl of Omnipollo to squeeze out a tasty, tempting and deceivingly well balanced IPA with sweet and sour notes of old-fashioned memories.

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: Strange colour… a hazy reddish, orange pink colour (like a dark grapefruit juice) with a two finger, very lightly pink colour head that had pretty good retention but left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Berry notes of that hard candy kind, berry smoothie, and touches of grapefruit here and there.
Taste: Lightly sweet, sour, bitter and tangy. Mixed berries, passionfruit, strawberry, orange, grapefruit, citrus zest and pine.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It’s quite nice, its almost there. The aroma was great, but there was just something in the taste that couldn’t quite pull all the fruit together to make it mesh. While not perfect, it still drinks easy and was refreshing.
