Tree House Brewing Company Green
What the brewers say
“Our cross-continental IPA. Made with Australian and American hops, this citrus-heavy IPA opens up in the glass with notes of pineapple, tangerine, and orange rind. It’s sharply bitter and nearly 8 percent ABV.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Sweet and juicy tropical fruit, pineapple, lemon, mango, peach, and banana. The nose is delicate and subtle but mouthwatering—an absolutely wonderful aroma.”
Flavor: “More fruity notes of pineapple, mango, and assorted tropical fruit. There’s a nice smoothness to this beer bordering on uffy. Fresh-cut pineapple stewed in pineapple juice and topped with candied pineapple. Malt backbone is chewy and substantial, while the bitterness is dangerously smooth. Melon and cantaloupe right off the bat! Low spicy notes in the middle of the sip. Very unique.”
Overall: “This beer is great—so full of juicy fruit flavors. Fluffy and light without sacrificing body. Great showcase of the hops. The low bitterness is just enough to make it an IPA. A juicy, fruity, hazy, chewy IPA that’s an excellent example of what new-school IPA can 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.
