Style: Double IPA
Tree House Beer Company Haze
What the brewers say
“A ton of orange on the nose, with complementary notes of peach and passion fruit. The flavor is similar with a blast of citrus and orange followed by spicy grapefruit and earthy dankness. A lingering but pleasant finish awaits.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Lots of juicy notes on this nose. Dank and resinous hops aroma. Mild malt and moderate esters. Huge orange aromas with lemon citrus complexities. Slight malt sweetness underneath.”
Flavor: “Beautifully integrated flavors that range from lemon juicy notes to pineapple and mango. Very big hops flavor, expanding on that resinous spiciness in the nose to add some grapefruit notes. Rich but soft bitterness that lasts for days, like a dark-roast coffee. Big and chewy. Massive orange notes with some underlying complexity tasting of grapefruit and lemon. Finishes slightly bitter, begging another sip.”
Overall: “Turbid and chewy body showcases the complex hops profile with excellent execution. The hops juiciness is paramount and carries through the beer. This beer tastes like breakfast (beer-mosa anyone?). Perfect for a weekend brunch.”

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.
