The Bruery Oude Tart
What the brewers say
“Oude Tart is a Flemish-style red ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. It’s pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Very light sour aroma with a bit of dark fruit and cinnamon. Faint green apple and acetone, with a light malt sweetness, some wood and berry notes.”
Flavor: “Cherry sweetness accented with dark fruit and berry notes. Moder- ate acidity with some slight fusels in the finish and a strong lactic-acid character with a hint of acetic. Heavy carbonic bite, deep wood notes and a slight astringency. High sour punch up front with little malt or sweetness to support it. Slight green apple note after I let it rest on my tongue.”
Overall: “A little on the acidic side, but overall fairly balanced. Aroma is quite tame. The wood is a bit over the top, but in a fun way. Excellent, complex acid 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.
