In early April, Icarus Brewing Company debuted Don't Haze Me Brux on draft in their Lakewood, NJ taproom. On Monday, Icarus received approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) for a can label for the beer.
When it was first released on tap, Don't Hate Me Brux was profiled as "hopped with El Dorado, Columbus and Mosaic and fermented using Brux". Can art for Don't Hate Me Brux lists the profile as "Heavily Oated North East style Pale Ale fermented with Brux Trois yeast copiously dry hopped with Lupulin Mosaic, Columbus, and El Dorado then Double Dry Hopped with Huell Melon". In the past, Icarus has enhanced recipes prior to canning, but it is unknown if the Lupulin Mosaic or Huell Melon inclusions are tweaks to the initial tapping.
Don't Hate Me Brux is listed as a 5% ABV Brux Pale Ale, and will be distributed in 16oz cans.
We reached out to Jason Goldstein of Icarus Brewing he told us that Don't Hate Me Brux is a "Sessionable Pale Ale fermented with Brux Trois yeast for its unique tartness, dry hopped with Lupulin Mosaic, Columbus,and El Dorado and then with a ton more Huell Melon on top of that, making it a super crushable summer Brux with a light bitterness." We were also informed that the recipe is "slightly tweaked fermentation profile and double dry hopped".
Icarus Brewing also informed us that DDH Don't Hate Me Brux would be released on Wednesday, 6/27, alongside another new beer - Milking It. According to the brewery, Milking It is "similar in style to Power Juicer this is an even bigger Lactose North East IIPA at 8.1% that we tested out with a new Experimental Hop (09326) which gives a berry, tropical fruit, and grapefruit flavors to pair with Lupulin Citra and Columbus. Extremely full flavored with a ton going on in every taste so far."
