Celis Brewing Company Celis White
What the brewers say
“Brewed with the highest quality ingredients, Celis White is a light and hazy yellow wheat beer, ideal for sipping during the hot summer months. An easy-drinking session beer laced with flavors of orange peel, spice, and coriander.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Strong floral character, with orange, tangerine, and vanilla. The orange-peel and perfumy character is somewhat muted. A bit of honey, bread, and wheaty graininess, along with lemon, esters of cherry, pear, and apple, and spicy phenols. All the aromas one would expect in a well-crafted wit, in almost perfect balance.”
Flavor: “The sip has the same floral presence, with brightness from the citrus esters, and cherry, pear, ripe apple, and strawberry enter, along with some coriander, black pepper, and ginger. The citrus is more lemon than orange. Tart wheat supports, with the graininess helping the beer to finish very dry.”
Overall: “All the parts of this beer come together well. The floral character dominates but is supported by the esters and the malt. Like a classic rock band on tour, it plays all the fan favorites, but it doesn’t throw out anything new.”

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.
