Brigadoon first brewed our Green Ogre in 2010 when an apprentice accidentally added 10 times the hops than the recipe called for. The original was actually green with hops and a calculated hops value of over 120 IBU’s. Realizing
the happy accident and the potential for an outstanding ale, our brewmaster reformulated the recipe to be malt forward with a nice soft citrus finish. Designed for the Ogre in each of us!
Green Ogre is a double or Imperial IPA wonderfully balanced- it won't destroy your palate, but it also provides a nice kick of hop flavor that you would want from an IPA. The addition of the cascade hops helps diffuse some of the English malt mouth feel and brings forth a nice refreshing citrus note at the end.
