India Pale Ale (IPA)
2007: A sunrise trip to the Weathers hop farm outside Salem yielded us sackfuls of plump, picked-that-morning Crystal hops. This brew has fantastically juicy and mouth-coatingly resinous qualities, while remaining balanced and super-drinkable.
Brewed with organic Pilsner Malt, imported crystal malts, and fresh Oregon hops.
2008: The folks at Weathers Farms supplied us with some beautiful Perle hops this year, which lent a more balanced aroma to our ’08 effort. Matt chose to tweak this year’s brew with more malt and some Simcoe hops (dried, not fresh), which helped to make the beer bigger in all respects. A seriously heady beer!
Brewed with organic Pilsner Malt, imported crystal malts, Simcoe and fresh Oregon Perle hops. 7.8% ABV, 70 BU
2014: This time of year is magical. The light gets long on the vines and the brewery starts working round the clock, keeping up with the fresh hops coming through the door. This year’s Killer Green again uses Brewer’s Gold from Sodbuster Farms, and we packed over one hundred and fifty pounds of these babies per batch in various parts of the brewing process. Spicy pine, kind herb, and crisp fruit dominate the nose, and it’s evened with a rounded, brioche malt body that compliments the profuse amount of hops used in this brew. ABV 7.5% 97 BU
