What the brewers say
“A 5.0% Session IPA. Galaxy. Southern Star. Mosaic.”
What our panel thought
Flavor: “Mango hops up front with mild grapefruit citrus and tangerine in the background. Light hops spiciness toward the end. Milky, creamy body with mild carbonation. At the end of the sip there is a slight bitterness from the hops. Good complexity, especially given the light body.”
Overall: “Just what I hope to get in a hazy session IPA—a smooth, slightly sweet and fruity hops-forward ale with a touch of spiciness towards the end of the sip. Could be a good introductory IPA for those who are averse to bitterness.”

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.
