Style: Citrus Quick Sours
To Øl Gose to Hollywood
What the brewers say
“To Øl got starstruck. This is how we went to Hollywood. Salty, sour, light Gose brewed with the best fruits California can offer. Best consumed on warm summer days or on the red carpet.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Bright lemony citrus aroma with light mango. Light tart aroma with a mild saltiness. Some salt character on the nose. Refreshing and crisp.”
Flavor: “Moderate fruity lemon tart up front with light grapefruit mango and raspberry. Light bitterness toward the end of the taste and finishes with a light sour note. The moderate carbonation plays well with the sourness creating a nice level of complexity. Crisp and refreshing.”
Overall: “Very sessionable with a pronounced citrus fruitiness balanced with a nice sour backbone. This beer is fruit-forward with a nice underlying tartness. Very drinkable with appropriate sweetness, a little lactic-acid tartness, and slightly salty.”

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.
