What the brewers say
“Pale golden in color; the nose is a mix of citrus-floral aroma sensations. Clean with a crisp, light malt taste, but with an herbal, hoppy finish. Body and mouthfeel are light and refreshing.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Surprising peach and resin hops. Sorghum grainy aroma. Spicy hops notes up front. Sweet malt, some fruity characters. Some grape-like notes. Very fruity. Strong apple aroma with notes of white wine. Light honey-like sweetness. No noticeable alcohol presence.”
Flavor: “Hops-forward, stone-fruit. A bit of candy-like sweetness from the base grain, with the hops character coming through mostly as earthy, spicy hops. Finishes a bit astringent, with a slight tartness. The grain-like sweetness hits in the front but dries out quickly with some slight grassy and tangy character in the finish. Grape-wine characteristics. Finishes very dry. Notes of ginger and lemongrass.”
Overall: “The bold hops profile helps this stand out. This beer provides some nice complexity with the tangy sharp carbonation giving a taste of a highly carbonated wine. Starts with a floral, fruity aroma. The taste profile comes across very soda like, particularly with the high level of carbonation. Very dry finish.”

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.
