Beloved Hood River, Oregon brewers Double Mountain Brewing releases Pale Death Belgian Style Imperial IPA. Draft is already available of this aromatic hoppy ale with bottles available at the Double Mountain Taproom and an official Portland release party at The Beermongers this Thursday January 8th.
“In late 2012 we went on beer exploration road trip and conceived ‘The Four Beers of the Apocalypse Series’,” shares Greg Balch, head brewer and co-beer creator. “As we revisit, the only beer that survived was Death.” Despite the popularity of the entire ‘The Four Beers of the Apocalypse Series’, the Pale Death stood out from the rest of the series with its bold tropical nose, and balanced nature. Upon continual inquiries of its return over the last couples of years, Double Mountain decided the return of the Pale Death would be a welcome addition to the 2015 bottled beer line up. “Although the 2015 bottles don a new look, the beer remains true to the original Pale Death recipe,” assures Kyle Larsen, head brewer and co-beer creator.

Description: Open the Fourth Seal and partake in the luminous pungency of dank tropical forest. Aromas of ripe kiwi, mango, and pineapple consort with the coriander and orange peel of the Ardennes yeast. A noticeable bitterness hangs in balance with a hint of malt sweetness hiding in the vast, pale orange foundation. And yet, it finishes dry for a beer of this formidable stature. “And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, and I looked to behold a Pale horse, and the name that set on him was Death, and Hell followed him.” (Revelations, Ch. 6) 9.3% ABV, 93 BU
