Evil Twin x Omnipollo Rainbownade

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing x Omnipollo
Country: USA
ABV: 7%
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.

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 23215, meaning it was bottled on 20th August 2015, so aged for about 2.5 years. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a half finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, molasses, chocolate, cocoa, raisins and dark fruit with hints of char and leather.
Taste: Peppery spice and woody beginning, followed by roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate and molasses. There is a touch of dark fruit and hints of smoke on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: My first impression wasn’t so good, but the more I drank it, the more I grew to like it. Perhaps partly it was because it got better as it warmed.

Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a thin brown head that dissipated quickly to a ring around the glass and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Bourbon, chocolate, pancake batter, molasses and maple.
Taste: Sweet maple, oak, bourbon, chocolate, caramel and coffee with hints of vanilla and soy.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full to medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: It’s sweet, but luckily only on the borderline of being too sweet for me. I also get some maple flavours, but prefer it to be even more distinct. But despite this, it was still a nice an enjoyable dessert beer.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 6th October 2017, with the words: “This one’s for you kidz” printed on the bottom. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A murky dark orange colour with a two finger frothy white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy and tropical strong with lots of mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit peel, orange rind and a hint of vanilla.
Taste: Orange juice, mango, peach, pineapple, citrus peel with a touch of vanilla. Finish is lightly sweet and bitter.

Overall: Wonderful fruit aromas while very easy and relaxing to drink. I wasn’t sure how the vanilla would match with IPA’s, but in this case, it balances very well with the tropical and citrus fruits.
