First tapping of Alpha Dragon IPA: 5 p.m. Wednesday January 20, Green Dragon, 928 S.E.Ninth Ave. Portland, Oregon

Alpha Dragon IPA is brew #11 from the Green Dragon - Oregon Brew Crew collaboration, brewed on the Green Dragon’s 1 barrel nano brew system. Oregon Brew Crew member John Heasley, brewer of Alpha Dragon IPA says “this IPA has big hop flavor, medium-high bitterness and a big citrus aroma from Simcoes and Summits. The Strawberry notes of the American Ale yeast complement the hops in this beer.”

Alpha Dragon IPA is brewed with 9 ingredients: 2 Row Pale, Crystal 40 and Wheat Malt; Magnum, Cascade, Simcoe and Summit Hops, Invert Sugar and American Ale Yeast. Specifications are 80 IBU, 9º Lovibond, and 16.9º Plato.

A portion of the proceeds from Alpha Dragon IPA will be donated to the Oregon Brew Crew.
