Maui Brewing Company (Kihei, Hawaii) has officially released POG IPA as a new, Limited Release offering.
Staying true to their “fiercely local” mission and commitment to avoid extracts and artificial flavors, the brewers at Maui Brewing Company have created POG IPA with the use of locally-grown (P)assion fruit, (O)range, and (G)uava. To complement these beautiful fruits, a hefty dose of Horizon, El Dorado and Enigma hops were employed to provide this India Pale Ale with a “clean bitterness . . ., tropical juicy aromatics and a slight citrus bite on the finish.” At 7.1% ABV and 58 IBUs, POG IPA remains a quenching, tropical experience.
“Earlier this spring, when Brewmaster Jesse Houck informed me that we would put POG IPA into cans at the end of the year, I was super stoked. Sourcing enough of the three fruit varieties is the biggest challenge. On top of that, guava has a really short shelf life once picked. It really makes brewing this beer exciting, because all of a sudden when the farmer has the yield we need, it’s GO time!”
– Matt Ponichtera, Brewing Supervisor at Maui Brewing Company
POG IPA was officially released in Maui Brewing’s Kihei Tasting Room and Lahaina Brewpub on Friday, December 2. With availability in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft, this Limited Release offering is shipping out now to Florida and all other “markets where Maui Brewing Company craft beer can be found.” This one will only be around for a limited time, so get you some while you can. Prost!
