Hoppy Red Ale

6.9% ALC./VOL.

My original records for this beer date back to a batch of home brew in June 2007. It was a beer called IPA Massacre. It was brewed three times under this moniker with minor tweaks along the way.

There were no less than seven iterations of this beer brewed before releasing what you hold in your hands right now. I still don't know what style of beer it is, but I can tell you that it is hoppy and it is red.

The most significant tweak I made to the recipe was changing it to using hops grown in Washington USA. Accordingly, in January 2011 the name was changed to Yakima Scarlet.

 

Enjoy drinking years of transmogrification, at refrigeration temperature with your friends or family.
