Double Mountain Brewery releases 5 Killer Fresh Hop Beers in 2019

Hood River, Oregon’s Double Mountain Brewery is releasing five killer fresh hop beers this season on draft and three of them in bottles. Long-running Killer Red IRA and Killer Green IPA are back and joined by more recent addition Killer Lion IPA in bottles. Killer Pale ale is another returning fresh hop beer, and brand new this year is Killer Juicy IPA. Portland fans can try Killer Juicy, Killer Green and Killer Red at the Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest’s Gorge Fresh Hop Night this Tuesday, September 24th.

Double Mountain utilizes fresh hop’s towards the end of the boil, during the hop back, in addition to dry hopping. Resulting in a fresh enclave of hop forward deliciousness. Killer Green, Red, and Lion are available in refillable 500ML bottles and, along with Killer Pale and Juicy, on draft at our Hood River Taproom, SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood, and throughout the Northwest.

Killer Green 7.3% ABV 96 BU
It’s harvest time! Straight from Sodbuster Farms in the Willamette Valley come Brewer’s Gold and Simcoe hops straight from the vine to the boil. Fresh bright evergreen, red fruit and blood orange lead the way, pulling juicy pine and kind herb through the finish. Be green. Drink Killer Green.

Killer Red 7.0% ABV 85 BU
Hops from Sodbuster Farms in the Willamette Valley are picked, transported, and put in to the brew within two hours. The exorbitant amount of fresh Perle and Centennial whole leaf hops heaped in to the kettle and hop back give this juiced up IRA a wonderful ripe apple, dank forest, and fruited pine flavors and aromas.

Killer Juicy 5.6% ABV 25 BU
Fresh Simcoe and Centennial hops pour in to a dense tropical rainforest dripping with the sticky, delicious mango, ripe summer peach, light cannabis, and deep orange. With hops this fresh, the decision to make this beer was the right decision. Clearly.


Killer Lion 7.8% ABV 82 BU
Fresh Citra and Mosaic hops lead with pride lending dank, green, tropic resin and evergreen. Blood orange, tangelo, and fresh bread stalk closely behind, with the earthy scent of Northwest petrichor hanging in the finish.

Killer Pale 5.4% ABV 50 BU
When we got word there would be a little extra fresh Simcoe from Sodbuster Farms, we found room for them in a batch of Pale. Sticky forest, dank citrus, and tropic melon drench the nose, while still finishing light, dewy, and highly quenching. Come on, you know we had to.

“What’s cooler than being cool? Sticking over eight pounds of the freshest Willamette Valley hops in each barrel of our 2019 ‘Killer’ beer series. Welcome to flavor country, Double Mountain-style.” -Tyler Justice Allen aka Snax, Brewer
