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!.

cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap. Pours golden yellow with a thin head and some lacing. Nose is big grassy floral, fresh hops and pine, delicious. Taste mostly delivers on the nose, hops, pine, citrus notes. Very dry and clean. Not sure why it’s a red, it’s a great IPA to me.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2014
500 ml Bottle (7.2% ABV). Dark golden amber colored with a dense layer of beige foam. Aroma of pine resin, orange rind and caramel. Flavor blends grapefruit, lemon and herbal hops upfront along with some caramel malt and pine. Moderately creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation and more citrus rind and hops bitterness in the finish. Not sure if Fresh Hop IRA is a style but it definitely delivers on its promise of alpha acid overload.

500 ml bottle- Pours hazy autumn orange with a nice creamy off white head with good retention, layered lace. Aroma is piney hops, spicy, some caramel malt. The taste is a hoppy red ale, strong hops, piney, citrusy and spicy, light caramel malt is there just enough. Tasty.

stevoj (3028) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Really loving fresh hop season. Another great "red", not much to look at but full of hoppy aroma and taste. Alcohol pokes its head in here and there to remind you to be careful. Well crafted.

Reid (2095) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
500ml bottle bought from Lifesource natural grocers in Salem OR $4.99 2014 . 7.2% alc and 88 IBUs. Amber coloured body,clear, with a lovely tight bubbled but large off white head. Different hop profile from the "green", more powdery and resinous..but equally fresh again caramel malts. Very much balanced in taste with mote fruitiness than the "Green", and the hops showing mote progress in the end. Great mouth feel to this one also..lower carbonation but slick. Again a very nice fresh hop beer.
