“Fresh Hop Strong IRA”

"It’s harvest time again, which means using just-picked hops straight from Sodbuster Farm in the Willamette Valley. Our choice of hops for the Killer Green were a little late this year, so we decided to craft a sister brew with fresh Perles to fill the thirsty void. Killer Red has distinct apple/pine/orange notes from the hops, and pulls that biscuit/caramel character you find in our India Red Ale (“IRA”). Drinks like it’s IRA, but the extra strength is worth respecting."

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight pine aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid citrus forward hop presence.

11/8/14 - 22 oz bottle poured into an ale glass. Pours with a frothy, white head that dissipates quickly leaving a film. Copper colored and slightly cloudy. Tons of lace on the side. Spruce and pine aroma, green apple, with butterscotch and roasted malt. Starts bitter, slightly metallic, with a slightly sweet finish. Medium body, well-carbonated, rich, long finish. Very nice.

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pour a reddish coppery amber with a fine half finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, piney and herbal hops with light caramel malt that is overwhelmed by the hop goodness. Flavor is also dominated by fresh piney, citrus and herbal hops with a light sweet malt body. The hops are aromatic and flavorful, but not heavily bitter. Lingering citrus and grassy hops aftertaste. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess. A nice IPA that showcases the hops without a lot of bitterness. The malt body is supportive, but not present enough to be a real red ale; I think the BA designation of American IPA is spot on. Both the red and green versions were quite nice and had distinctive hop flavor profiles. Tasty.

500ml bottle bought from Lifesource natural grocers in Salem OR $4.99 2014 . 7.2% alc and 88 IBUs. Amber coloured body,clear, with a lovely tight bubbled but large off white head. Different hop profile from the "green", more powdery and resinous..but equally fresh again caramel malts. Very much balanced in taste with mote fruitiness than the "Green", and the hops showing mote progress in the end. Great mouth feel to this one also..lower carbonation but slick. Again a very nice fresh hop beer.
