Fresh Hop IRA
Mother Nature is a wonder. Each year she decrees what her bounty will bring, regardless of what we think it should be. Thusly, Sodbuster Farms in Salem brought us two varieties of fresh hops; Perle, and Sterling. 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. When life hands you hops, make fresh hop beer!.

500ml brown bottle. Orange, a bit hazy, nice looking creamy foam and wide bands of lacing in the glass. Aromas of caramel malt, mixed tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine and light weed. Taste - some caramel sweetness, citrusy, fruity. Medium lasting bitterness and some bitter citrus notes lingering. Medium bodied, good smooth carbonation. Good beer, not as intense in the finish as I would have liked, but worth drinking.

Damn. Similar to the killer green yet not. Still got that dankness that I loved in the green. Pineapple, sweet orange, melon, floral stuff, caramel, fresh. The taste is big yet kinda an all over the place thing. Just got caught up watching a two hr Maiden show and that beer is long gone. Was pretty good but not as good as the green.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a copper color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, caramel and tropical fruits. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a light tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A nice refreshing IPA that is easy to drink.

Dank aroma. A little bit of citrus. It smells like a dryer sheet not saying that in a bad way. Clear appearance. Amber colored. A nice thick, frothy head. Great lacing. Sticky texture. Starts really hoppy and finishes mellow. Average carbonation. Very easy drinking beer.

sloth (2688) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Medium sized, off white head, good retention, solid lacing.Murky, amber hued brew. Mild nose, faint,earthy hops and bready malts. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation, touch sour. Grainy malts and earthy hop flavors, bit nutty and leafy, hint metallic with a fairly dry finish and tame bite.ABV well hidden. Props to 5K for the bottle!

vyvvy (5010) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2015
On tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy reddish amber with an off white head. The aroma has rich full toasty malt that’s rich and offset by bright hops that seem almost minty. The taste has full rich lightly toasty malt, bright silveery hops, rich orange, tart apple, melon and candied fruit. The finish has some pine too. Really nice.

Capa (2423) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2015
A nice red/orange with a lasting white head. Bright fruits and strong floral notes along with noticeably strong sweet malts in the aroma. Flavor is heavy on the floral and bright fruit notes with caramel malts and light toast. An interesting brew and not at all what I was expecting. The intense floral/perfume fruit notes makes an entire bottle a little hard to get thru. Not a huge fan.

16.9 oz bottle. Bottled 9/15/15, a little over three weeks ago. Aroma is piney, pineapple, earth, lotion, lemon peel, freshness. Pours hazy burnt orange with a finger of beige foam with decent retention. Taste is medium-level bitter backed by a candy sweetness. Very nice.

Bottle (500ml $5): This one leans strongly to the malt side. Somewhat sweet somewhat fruity. Overall nice.

500mL bottle that Pruf forced me to buy at gunpoint. Red beer, lots of lacing. So this beer is too malty for me, don’t like all this caramel and hops. The hops are all gravy but the malts are dry,dry... arid turkey.
