Notes: Brewed in collaboration with Mortalis Brewing.

It was great having Mortalis Brewing come to hang a few weeks ago. We all decided to pay homage to the Hops we use on a daily basis. Lupus Salictarius, which literally translates as “wolf of the willows”, is disputably the first hop plants and is said to be the botanical name immortalized by a famous Roman Philosopher (who is also an extremely tasty West Coast IPA. Respect). Tying into the Latin references Mortalis uses, we decided on a recipe that showcases some of our new favorite hops to pay homage to the OG of hops and Lupus Salictarius was born.

We started off with a base of 2 row, flaked oats and white wheat before adding a giant addition of Citra and Idaho7 in the whirlpool. We dry hopped with some of our favorites; Citra, Nelson, and Galaxy to finish it of with a big bang. This triple is an absolute explosion of tropical dankness. Big guava, sweet tangerine citrus, white grape, and a touch of passionfruit. It has a smooth but prominent chewy mouthfeel and has big notes of our signature #EQjuice that really showcases what these hops have to offer.

Another in a seemingly never-ending string of releases from Equilibrium.

This one pours thick, dark for its style with minimal head, but the beer laces nicely as you go into it.

The 10.5 percent alcohol is well-hidden.

I am always happy when my travels take me to Middletown, and I have sincerely never had even an average offering from these folks.
