pHriem Family Brewers Down Under IPA
What the brewers say
“Say g’day to a grog brewed with some of Australia’s finest hops. pFriem Down Under IPA is a bright copper beer overflowing with notes of strawberry, kiwi, citrus, and huckleberry. So let’s raise our pints to a beer packed with more hops than a western brush wallaby.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Muted nose—a little floral, a bit grassy, dank, some lemon, a little pineapple. A bit herbal in the finish. Restrained medium-sweet malt.”
Flavor: “Sweet smooth fruity notes up front. Lemongrass, pineapple, grapefruit, a little melon, some orange, subtle light stone fruit. Bitterness is moderate and cuts the sweetness well.
Overall: “Very classic with lots of grapefruit and lemon. Very drinkable. A fairly restrained IPA, but all of the parts work well together.”

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.
