Style: Imperial New England-Style IPA
The Veil Broz Night out
What the brewers say
“Pale malt, a bunch of oats, and hopped exclusively and intensely with 100% Citra hops. Clocking in at 9% ABV, this one is insane! Perfect for when it’s the Broz Night Out (that even pertains to your #ladybroz)!”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Overripened orange flower, citrus, spiciness, floral, and herbal notes. Interesting malt character of overcooked pasta and vegetal tomato sauce with sweet biscuit. There is a strong aroma of pumpkin guts, as well as higher-alcohol hooch.”
Flavor: “A blend of overripened citrus and unique malt flavors of sweet biscuit, light caramel, and bread crust. The moderate hops bitterness includes grassy and floral hops more than tropical citrus hops. The malt gives it a chewy consistency, and there’s a moderate alcohol warming, but the sweetness lingers into the finish.”
Overall: “This is an aggressive beer that has a unique balance of hops and malt and is interestingly different from the others in the field. The hops profile is not super fresh and bright, and the alcohol heat is off-putting. A bit more hops bitterness would be nice.”

New Belgium The Hemperor HPA®
Our brewers are always on the lookout for different hops varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclu- sion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
Tröegs Independent Brewing Hop Knife
Cracking open a Hop Knife takes me right to the hops fields in Yakima,’ says our brewmaster, John Trogner. ‘When we’re out there for harvest, walking the fields and talking to the farmers, those notes of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit are everywhere. For me, Hop Knife embodies that whole experience.’
High Hops Brewery Dr. Pat’s Double IPA
Who is Dr. Pat? A dentist, third-generation farmer, and cofounder of High Hops Brewery. Dr. Pat cultivated our on-site hops farm in 2007, which led to the opening of High Hops Brewery in 2012. It’s his recipe that creates this malty, heavily hopped beer. We brew it with continuous hops additions using hops grown in that same field more than 10 years later.
