Moylan's Brewing Company Dragoons Dry Irish Stout
What the brewers say
“Dry, roasty, and rich in flavor, Dragoons is made with a blend of imported hops and malted barley from the United Kingdom. It is brewed in the Irish tradition to commemorate General Stephen Moylan, Irish-born commander of the 4th Continental Dragoons.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Rich chocolate and cocoa. Nice sweet malt character with some esters. Light toffee, dark cherry, a little musky, pleasant roast, some burnt husk character. Coffee, chocolate, and toast malt aromas dominate.”
Flavor: “Nice roast profile with some acidic bitterness. Coffee, chocolate, and cocoa. A little light bodied compared to the nose and missing a touch of mouthfeel, though otherwise balanced. Dry finish is a little surprising after the big chocolate nose, and roasty bitterness lingers. A little tart in the finish, which is refreshing.”
Overall: “Nice roast character with sweet creaminess. A good profile of the chocolate and cocoa. It’s a subdued and approachable stout that one could drink in great quantities and still retain one’s dignity. Very much what an Irish stout should be.”

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.
