Odell Brewing Company IPA
What the brewers say
We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from England to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful—American Style. We’ve added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character.
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Sweet citrus notes dominate with little to-no-malt aroma; a mix of floral spice (fresh peppercorns) and tropical fruit. Subtle mango, tangerine, ripe peach. Spice mellows and fruitiness intensifies as it warms.”
Flavor: “Hop flavor is dominant with fruity citrus flavors. Medium hop bitterness with low straw malt qualities. A juicy IPA, with prominent fruity hops that bring out mango, tangerine, and ruby red grapefruit flavors. Some pine and floral flavors with a bitter finish that lingers.”
Overall: “Enjoyable IPA that showcases American hops. Clean and easy drinking for an IPA. Very tasty and somewhat unique IPA with hop flavors and aromas that are less common. Nice bitterness that helps accentuate the hop profile.”

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.
