Green's Quest Tripel Ale
What the brewers say
“Fairly light body for beer of this strength; spice and herb nose with flavors of candied fruit. Aromatic, long finish.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Strong apple notes, with a strong cider-like quality. Lots of fruity sweetness, with notes of red and green apples, pears, white wine, and apple blossoms. Sweet aroma. Little to no hops aroma. Yeast esters noticeable but low.”
Flavor: “A strong similarity to cider and could pass as a semi-sweet cider. A bit more pleasant red apple notes than green apple sweetness, along with some pear notes and some spiciness. High carbonation that comes across a bit harsh. Medium body with a somewhat sweet finish. No hops flavor.”
Overall: “Tastes like a full-bodied cider with some interesting Belgian yeast characters. A more substantial body and graininess than most gluten free beers. A mild yeast profile for a Belgian style.”

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.
