A Note on This Beer
Today’s 10% ABV Omnipolloscope Hazy Triple IPA is a collaboration between Anchorage, Omnipollo, Monkish, Trillium, Other Half, Equilibrium, The Veil, Crooked Stave, Stigbergets Bryggeri, O/O, Cellarmaker, and Cloudwater!
*Catching my breath*
With all those superstar breweries, it feels like Woodstock or Lollapalooza in a can!
Omnipolloscope is already earning a 4.30 on Untappd for its orange-tangerine aromas, and incredibly smooth twists of ripe mango and papaya. Notes of grape and pineapple on the tongue carry this thick bodied brew through to a sticky, nectarous finish.
We’ve never seen a collab with anywhere near as star-studded of a lineup as this one. And judging from the chaotic sellouts that occurred when just two of these 12 breweries teamed up in the past — we won’t be seeing this beer for long.
Here’s our best guess on how this beer-insanity came together:
Omnipollo’s Karl and Henok were hanging out with Gabe from Anchorage, discussing the current state of craft beer over a couple of juicebombs. Nothing too serious was mentioned — until Karl says, “Hey Gabe, I saw that Paste Magazine listed you guys as one of the Best Craft Breweries in the U.S. What’s the craziest collaboration you’ve ever done?”
“That’s a tough one,” Gabe replied. “We’ve done a ton, but the craziest in terms of pandemonium from our fans was probably the Hazy we did with Monkish. Beer geeks were flying up to Alaska from all over the world to get that one!
How about you guys, what was the biggest response you’ve ever gotten from a collab?”
“Damn Gabe, we’ve done our fair share as well, but the one that really floored us was when we teamed up with Trillium. Their supporters are on another level — people actually camped out as early as 2am to make sure they got a bottle at the 12pm release!”
“Karl, Henok, I’ve got a wild idea! How about we team up on a collaboration and bring in Monkish and Trillium? People would lose their goddamn minds.”
“Why stop there?” said Karl. “Let’s pull off some Guinness Book of World Records-type shit and get every super hyped brewery in our contact list involved.”
“That’s ridiculous! I love it, let’s do it!”
