When brewed? Limited-time beer. Debuted around July 2016.
IBU: 100 (according to Untappd, but sounds like a typo to me....)

Commercial Description: "Drawing inspiration from the fidelity of a saison - rustic, alluringly cloudy, and crisp - this Imperial IPA was brewed using oats and wheat. Dry-hopped twice and completely untouched post-fermentation to preserve aroma and flavor."

Where distributed: Omnipollo beers may be distributed to various U.S. states through its local importer/distributor. Some of their beers make it to the Pacific NW.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head; trace lacing at the top of the glass. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tropical citrus and stone-fruit-forward. Complementing oaty malt. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Malt a bit more assertive towards the start, but otherwise tropical citrus all the way. Tangerine and grapefruit, with some stone fruit. Very refreshing and easy drinking. Aftertaste continues with the citrus. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Extremely juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.75/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding Double IPA. I felt this one had more of a tropical citrus experience (and less octane flavor) than Zodiak Multiverse, so it gets a slightly higher score from me. Delicious and certainly recommended. I still think the stated 100 IBU is a typo, probably should be more around 50-ish to me. But all subjective, I guess. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.513/5
