Hazy Juicy IPA|
Inspired by “Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic” Issac Hayes
Our Hazy IPA is our nod to the New England Style of hazy, juicy IPAs that have become a fan favorite. Hopperbolic is generously hopped to bring out the best of our hand selected hop blend. Ripe stone fruit and a medley of citrus emanate from your glass, then you take a sip that is bursting with vibrant flavors of mango, tropical sherbet ice cream and candy like sweetness. It ends with a gentle, rounded bitterness and a lush, pillowy mouthfeel. Stop procrastinating and wrap your phalanges around your glass for a cerebral experience!

“HYPERBOLICSYLLABICSESQUEDALYMISTIC” Issac Hayes
Recorded at Ardent Studios, 1969
This ten minute funk number was on Issac Hayes’ groundbreaking Hot Buttered Soul album. He was best known at the time as a songwriter and arranger for Stax Records. Hot Buttered Soul contained just four tracks and was a complete breakaway from the standard three-minute song format. Hayes explained to Rolling Stone in February 1972: “I felt like what I wanted to say, I couldn’t say it in no two minutes and 30 seconds, because I wanted to speak through the arrangement, I wanted to speak through singing, I wanted to speak through actual monologue. I cut that record with all the freedom in the world and it was a beautiful release for me.” The song title is surprisingly frequently misspelled, even on the album cover, the backup singers are clearly singing “-nistic.” The song’s lyrics, by Hayes and Stax Records Executive Al Bell, poke fun at those who use big words unnecessarily, in this instance when re-wooing a lost love through high-minded compliments. The musicians include the Bar-Kays’ bassist James Alexander and drummer Willie Hall (later of The Blues Brothers Band).
