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.”

Two pillars of brew- ing history come together to release a beer that represents the origin and the evolution of brewing. Braupakt is deliciously drinkable, showcasing both Weihenstephan’s brewing prowess through their signature yeast and Sierra Nevada’s proclivity for big hops flavor. The initial impression on the palate is of a bouquet of aromas, including subtle touches of banana plus refreshing grapefruit from the American Chinook hops.
A flavorful craft beer that’s uniquely easy to drink? It’s true. Introducing Firestone Lager. While Firestone Lager may not be your father’s lager, it is just as drinkable—which is ultimately the point. In the words of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, “Firestone Lager is all about enjoying a good, clean beer.”
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 Nimble Giant
We had no idea that a little experiment with Mosaic hops would set us on a year-long path to a new double IPA. But seven small-batch Scratch beers later, we found the Giant. Nimble Giant—brewed with Mosaic, Azacca, and Simcoe—gracefully boasts grapefruit rind, pineapple, and honeysuckle notes with a hint of earthy forest floor.
