Bringing The Hops Volume 1
Saturday March 30th @ 12 pm.
Our passion is to bring our loyal guest the best beers on a daily, weekly, monthly & yearly basis.
Over the past few weeks we have been featuring NJ breweries who never made it to taps this north. Tapping all styles for everybody to enjoy. With that being said we only tapped one IPA from those breweries.
THIS SATURDAY IS FOR THE HOP HEADS!
Humulus Lupulus (hops) are the flowering cone of a perennial vining plant and a cousin of the cannabis variety (sorry no THC in this stuff) that typically thrives in climates similar to the ones that grapes do. Hop plants are dioecious, meaning the males and females flower on separate plants — and the female cones are used in the brewing process. Hops are the age old seasoning of the beer, the liquid gargoyles who ward-off spoilage from wild bacteria and bringers of balance to sweet malts. They also lend a hand in head retention, help to clear beer (acting as a natural filter) and please the palate by imparting their unique characters and flavours. Basically, hops put the “bitter” in beer.
1) Barrier / Finback Collaboration Legal Tender IPA 7%
Dry hopped with Mosaic & Columbus. Juice money with some balance.
2) Nightmare Drawn & Quartered Double IPA 10%
Mostly carried out in the Medieval and Early Modern era, being torn apart by horses was also referred to as “disruption” or being “drawn and quartered”.
Those condemned would have their arms and legs chained to four horses, who would then be driven in opposite directions. This would tear the limbs from the torso and typically result in disembowelment. The limbs would then be publicly displayed on common thorough-fares. Infamous cases include the executions of François Ravaillac in 1610 and Robert-François Damiens in 1757.
A Quadruple Dry Hopped Imperial IPA, Drawn & Quartered has hops thrown in, in each vessel of the brewing process (Mash, Kettle, Fermentor & Brite). As well as four separate times during fermentation. By featuring different hops at different times and stages, the flavors and aromatics range drastically. Nectarine, Mango and underlying white wine aromatics. Soft up front with tropical notes, mango, ripe pineapple, tangerine and lychee flavors. Finishes with a dank bite and alcohol warmth on the back end.
Featuring Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Enigma & Citra along with the four horsemen of the apocalypse; War, Pestilence, Famine & Death. Enjoy fresh before it brings about the end of days.
3) Modern Times City of the Sun American IPA 7.6%
City of the Sun is a big, fruity, pungent, sticky, delicious IPA. Mosaic & Motueka give it a very fruity hop character, with Simcoe providing enough of a piney backbone to prevent it from going off the deep end. The complex but unobtrusive malt character gives it a medium body and a platform for the saturated hop flavor.
4) New Realm / Stone LITERALLY Wrote the Book IPA Double IPA 9%
For ten awesome years in Escondido, Mitch Steele served as Stone Brewing’s Brewmaster. In that time, he helped develop some of our most celebrated and influential beers while also (quite literally) writing the book on IPAs. In 2016 he moved to Atlanta to co-found his own brewery, New Realm Brewing. In 2019 we’re thrilled to get to work with him once again as the New Realm team brews with the Stone Brewing Richmond crew for a collaboration IPA.
5) Abomination Wandering Into the Fog NEIIPA 8.6%
Brewed with a heavy wheat and oat malt bill hopped and double dry hopped aggressively with 7+lbs per bbl of Mosaic, Pacific Jade, Citra, Summit and Enigm
6) Cypress Save the Drama for the Llama NEIPA 6.5%
New England IPA brewed with Hallertau Blanc and double dry hopped at 5 pounds per barrel equal parts Nelson Sauvin and Hallertau Blanc.
7) Triple Crossing Sight Lines American IPA 6%
Our West Coast influenced IPA takes shape in this 6% ABV slightly hazy pale yellow pour. Both intentionally and intensively kettle and dry hopped at various points in its life with Simcoe, Citra and Chinook. This beer delivers citrus, tangerine, melon, and a firmly crisp pine like finish. Born out of the need for something dryer and less yeast focused than usual, we’re excited to offer a hoppy beer that branches off into its own territory.
😎 Old Nation M-43 IPA 6.5% (yes, we have another keg!)
The First release in our “New Orthodox” IPA series, M-43 is designed to accentuate the deep and complex character from the combination of Calypso, Amarillo, Citra, and Simcoe hops. Citrus and Tropical notes of Pineapple, Mango and Grapefruit come through in the huge, yet surprisingly delicate aroma. The flavor backs these aromas with a soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Hop bitterness is not particularly intense, which leads to a very drinkable, juicy IPA even non-IPA fans love. The Haze is not from yeast, but rather from an interplay of lipids from the malted oat and oils and acids which naturally occur in the hand selected Dry hops. This beer is a perfect interplay between top grade malt and hops, MI water and brewing technique which cannot be faked.
9) Icarus Bang Kitty Brux NEIIPA 8.1%
Heavily Wheated and Oated Brux North East Imperial India Pale Ale with Lactose brewed with Lemongrass, Thai Basil, and Thai Chilis. Copiously dry hopped with Lupulin Citra, Idaho 7, and Experimental Bru-1. Finished on Lemongrass and Toasted Coconut.
10) Evil Twin The Nomadic Approach To Reinventing the Wheel Edition 2 Version 2 – Pineapple Face Double IPA 8.2%
A variation of our first Collaboration with Root + Branch Brewing with the addition of Pineapple. An extremely aromatic DIPA brewed with milk sugar, conditioned on coconut flakes with prominent mango, pineapple, & orange hop characteristics w/ a soft bitterness & carbonation.
Magnify 4K Triple IPA 10%
4K is a new high definition 10% Triple IPA. This beer is a mash up between our luxurious Triple IPA series and Pixilated IPA that we released last week. We took a very similar base beer to Reserved and our other luxurious TIPAs and used the same, but amplified hop bill (Galaxy and Rakau) as Pixilated. We then fermented this beer with a blend of a few different hazy/juicy yeast strains.
Kane SBX Double IPA 8.4%
SBX – formally known as Imperial Sneakbox – is brewed with American two-row, red wheat malt, malted oats and caramalt. We add just a bit of Citra in the whirlpool and then follow that up with a massive dry-hop of Citra and Galaxy.
Growler fills on all beer beers will be available.
Stop in for a beer or two.
See you soon!
