2019 Hogus Maximus Extremis
We started with our Hogus Maximus Triple IPA, continuously fed the yeast until they tired of the buffet, then laid the beer to rest in freshly dumped bourbon barrels. Nine months later, the result is nothing like an Imperial IPA. Its transformation created a superbly balanced and gratifyingly lavish strong ale.
Hogus Maximus Extremis is not only the most potent beer we have made to date, but also the most intensely nuanced, boasting flavors of bourbon saturated vanilla bean, marshmallows impossibly toasted to a uniform golden brown, rich almond liqueur, English toffee candies, a touch of toasted coconut, and a lingering sense of hedonism.
L.A.B. Partner with Blackcurrant
This version of L.A.B. Partner teams up our bracingly tart gose with the intense flavors and aromas of blackcurrants. Deep magenta with a pinkish head. Earthy, floral, passion fruit, light raspberry. Tart and juicy with a hint of funk. Sight salinity from Jacobsen hand harvested sea salt. Finishes with a lingering breadiness of fresh sourdough and jam. Intensely refreshing and satisfyingly sessionable.
Hogus Maximus Triple IPA
Hogus tastes like pure hop juice. Dank, piney aromas overwhelm the nose and continue into the flavor, where they are balanced by enough citrus to complete the American hop trio. It finishes dry, with almost no malt flavor to get in the way of the hops.
Alpha Factor IPA
Although named for a yeast mating pheromone, this beer is stuffed full of hops, just the way we like it! Clean fermentation and light malt let the hops shine their brightest. Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe, and Amarillo.
Donnrua Brown Ale
Pouring a luscious dark toffee color Donnrua tastes of decadence. Notes of hazelnut and pecan mingle with bittersweet chocolate, fading into smooth toffee and caramel to finish.
Pouring a luscious dark toffee color Dunnrua tastes of decadence. Notes of hazelnut and pecan mingle with bittersweet chocolate, fading into smooth toffee and caramel to finish.
Hydrogen Blonde with pineapple juice
This dry Irish stout is served on a nitro pour for a smooth body and mild roasted notes. It is hard to imagine someone more Irish than our good friend Seamus O’Brien, so we made this beer in his honor and have a seat saved for him next time he makes it over from Dublin.
Pop Quiz E. Kara
Our first named (not numbered) Pop Quiz is E. Kara for Erin Kara, PhD. Dr. Kara is a Postdoc at the University of Maryland and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center where she uses X-Rays to study black holes. She was selected based on her recent Nature paper “The corona contracts in a black-hole transient”.
And like the ejection of a black hole corona this beer radiates intense aromas of pineapple and pomelo zest. Light vanilla and fresh baked white bread round out this latest version of Pop Quiz.
