Omnipollo: Covered In Puppies (Trillium Collab) 8.1% [330ml]
They say "What do Swedes love almost as much as a juicy double IPAs? Apparently, David Hasselhoff as Trillium brewer JC learned during his summer visit to Stockholm. Photos of The Hoff were plastered throughout the brewery for the collaboration brew, which invoked powerful memories of JC's 'favourite' Hoff photo... one where he is strategically "covered" in puppies. After sharing this photo with the Omnipollo crew, everyone immediately agreed this would be name of the Double IPA they were brewing. The label design was inspired by Karl & Kevin's favourite artist when they were kids: MC Escher. Karl and Kevin were able to fully realize the inspiration from Escher and meld that with the respective styles of each brewery. A nose of tropical fruit and bubble gum take the lead with woody resin undertones. Palate is juicy with flavours of creamy pineapple and freshly baked bread, wrapping it up with a soft -as-a-puppy bitterness."
We say "Now who wouldn't like to have an evening covered in puppies, the beer version of this situation by Omnipollo and Trillium is pretty neat too! This is the epitome of fruity hop juice, with flavours encompassing mango, tangerine, grapefruit, passionfruit and lychee. Yes folks this is Trillium signature juice with Omnipollo zaniness bringing sweetness to the party. A great juicy IPA with nicely bitter citrus and pith flavours and piney dankness rounding it off."
