The 7.8%-abv entry is currently available through February 1, in 22-ounce bottles and on draft throughout the Oregon, Washington and Idaho markets, as well as in British Columbia.

Also available in mid-December is The Maharaja, which is an Imperial IPA and the brewer’s latest entry in its “Dictator” series. Available in 22-ounce bombers, the new IPA will be followed in January by six-pack bottles and cases of New World Porter, billed as a dry-hopped, traditional black Porter.
