Some of the featured beers include:
Killer Red-The exorbitant amount of fresh Centennial and Simcoe whole leaf hops heaped into the kettle and hop back give this juiced up IRA a wonderful ripe apple, juicy forest, and fruited pine flavors and aromas, with a hint of caramel. 7.0% ABV 78 BU
Killer Green-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. 7.3% ABV 96 BU
Killer Juicy-A dense tropical rainforest drips with sticky, delicious mango, ripe summer peach, light cannabis, and deep orange. With hops this fresh from the Willamette Valley, the decision to make this beer was the right decision. Clearly. 5.4% ABV 30 BU
Killer Lion-Brewed with fresh Citra and Mosaic hops that 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. 7.8%ABV 82 BU
