Double Mountain Release Parties for Killer Green & Red Fresh Hop Beers


Double Mountain Brewery debuted their anticipated Killer Green and Killer Red Fresh Hop ales at their pub in Hood River last weekend and now has a series of release parties in Oregon and Washington coming up. Bottles and draft will be available in local retail shops and local watering holes throughout the Pacific Northwest and parts of Southern California as early as September 26th.

It was a good hops harvest this year, producing a bounty of Brewer’s Gold hops from Sodbusters Farms in the Willamette Valley to be used in this year’s Killer Green Fresh Hop IPA. Double Mountain brewers worked around the clock to ensure the fresh hops got into the boil, the hop back, and the fermenter as soon as possible. The result; melon, currant, savory citrus, kind herb, and pine aromas waft from the effervescence, supported by a dry, brioche malt body and a pleasantly lasting bitterness.

The 2014 Killer Red Fresh Hop IRA boasts two varieties of fresh hops; Perle and Sterling from Sodbusters Farms. The consortium of these hops provides the Killer Red with aromas of blood orange, pineapple, and forest. A healthy malt bill balances the top end and lends candied fruit, biscuit, and caramel character to the tongue.
