Double Mountain Killer Green Fresh Hop IPA
From Double Mountain Brewery – It’s the most wonderful time of the year. We were able to wrangle a bounty of Brewer’s Gold and Simcoe from Sodbusters Farms in Salem for us to turn into delicious fermented nectar. We worked around the clock to ensure these beauties got in to the boil, the hop back, and the fermenter as soon as possible. The result: pine forest, red apple, savory citrus, kind herb, and red fruit aromas waft from the effervescence, supported by a dry, brioche malt body and a pleasantly lasting bitterness. Be green. Drink Killer Green. 7.6 % ABV, 96 BU
