Hideous is a berry- and citrus-flavored liqueur, produced by Hideous, L.C., a company based in the United States. The liqueur is 70 proof, is magenta in color, and mildly sweet. The company promotes it to be consumed as a "shooter" as well as in mixed drinks, several recipes for which it has developed. It has been compared in flavor to the cocktail called a cosmopolitan. The liqueur is made from potato and corn neutral spirit, with added natural flavors derived from berries grown in the state of Washington and citrus fruits. The neutral spirit is produced at Distilled Resources Inc. in Rigby, Idaho, and Hideous is one of only four U.S. liqueur manufacturers to produce its own neutral spirit. Hideous, L.C.'s owner and founder is Michael E. Klein, who is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. He developed the brand while a student at the University of Texas at Austin. The company is incorporated in New Orleans, where its headquarters is located, but most of the company's business is conducted from its Austin, Texas office. The liqueur is currently available in the U.S. states of Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Idaho, Montana, Washington, Wyoming, and Oregon.

In the midst of such profound anguish, one memory fills us with hope, when evil showed its hideous face, Americans of all walks of life rose up -- and they did, they rose up -- they defied fear, they stared down death to protect the innocent. And stand tall they did just for righteous and for good.
I saw—with shut eyes, but acute mental vision—I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be, for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world.
