Sampled after Killer Green. Also mild mannered and surprisingly drinkable for the variety. All the notes are there in balance. Recommended. B+

On tap at DM pub. Opaque reddish toffee color, light head. Lots of loose lace. Beautiful citrus and floral aroma, followed by snappy and restrained malt profile, clean finish. Much more balanced and pulled-together than the Killer Green, a perennial favorite.

Love the regular IRA. This doesn’t have the same edge. Tastes similar to the Killer Green. That’s not a bad thing either. Has a little extra sweetness and minerality to it.

Tap @ Hood River Fresh Hop Fest... Poured reddish amber with a white head. Bug floral, piney and citrus hop flavors. One of the most refreshing of the Fest as it was nicely balanced by a malt backbone and fruit esters.

Tap at Bier Stein several months back, from notes. Opaque red pour with bubbly white head. Big floral aroma up front, with lots of citrus and pine and a solid caramel malt backing. Flavor has the same components, but the citrus and pine are dominant this time. Well-balanced and delicious fresh hop ale.

500. Pours a dark cloudy amber with a loose white head and moderate lace. Highly vegetative nose, very plant like, really showing fresh hop notes. Toasty caramel and peppery herbal qualities. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel with peppery herbal danky fresh hop mid palate. Long earthy herbal finish. Great showcase for the plant life.
