BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom
Oregon, United States
doublemountainbrewery.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Fresh Hop IRA. Hops from Sodbuster Farms in the Willamette Valley are picked, transported, and put in to the brew within two hours. The exorbitant amount of fresh Perle whole leaf hops heaped in to the kettle and hop back give this juiced up IRA a wonderful ripe apple, dank forest, and fruited pine flavors and aromas.

2015 version on tap. Huge hop bitterness with grassy pine assault on your taste buds and a tropical fruit aftertaste. Bitterness is extreme in my opinion a little more malt would of helped

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.

Poured from a 500ml bottle. Not bad but expected more from these guys.
A: Pours a nice red amber no head or lacing.
S: A sweet hop nose
T: A fruity hop taste a nice sweetness there.
F:Medium Carbonation with a nice hop bitterness.
O: Not a bad Red Fresh Hopped IPA but missing the hop kick in my opinion.
