HopDog Brews

Horns Up

5.8% abv, 70 IBUs, Core Range
With great hops, comes great responsibility. The sense blisteringly awesome IPA you hold in your mortal hands is our flagship ale, and central to the HopDog core range. Horns Up is brewed with 25% rye in the malt grist, and an obnoxious blend of American and Australian hops added in 6 different stages during brewing. This builds the hop bitterness, flavour and aroma, giving you aggressive citrus, tropical fruits and grapefruit characters. The rye malt adds dry spiciness. Horns Up doesn’t demand anything from you other than “drink and enjoy”, and you must obey! 

Available as: 330ml bottles, growler fills, 50L and 19L kegs.

Redhopulus

5.0% abv, 40 IBUs, Core Range
American styled red ale. Big chewy malt profile from the judicious use of German Melanoidin and British Crystal malts – caramel and biscuit malts and a hint of chocolate on the back palate. Hopped with US Chinook and Australian Ella hops giving this brew an aroma and character of citrus, tropical fruits and cracked pepper. Perfect with hearty meals and bar snacks. 

Available as: 330ml bottles, growler fills, 50L and 19L kegs.

Cosmic Highway

4.8% abv, 30 IBUs, Core Range
Single hop pale ale. Brewed with 3 malts and 1 hop, this ale exhibits aromas of tropical fruits, citrus and toast with marmalade. The malt profile is subtle and smooth – an easy drinker, but still with plenty of New Zealand Motueka hops to give it a HopDog twist. Not your average pale ale. Road trip the Cosmic Highway with fish and BBQ’d meats. Sessionable. 
Available as: 330ml bottles, growler fills, 50L and 19L kegs.
