Terrapin Beer Company T-Time
What the brewers say
“T-Time Berliner weisse is a tart and thirst-quenching wheat beer made with fresh tea and lemon peel. This easy-to-drink summertime refresher will get you back into the swing of things both on and off the course.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Big lemon and citrus notes, some herbal tea notes, and a really nice wheat character. A nice blend of sweetness with some tartness and complexity.”
Flavor: “Really interesting flavor. After the aroma, one might expect this to be a citrus/lemon bomb, but it has some interesting herbal notes to balance the tartness of the lemon and tartness. It’s really dry in the finish, but you get this nice residual sweetness from the malt that allows the tartness and citrus to linger. It tastes like lemon herbal tea, and the flavors balanced well together. Not too sweet, not too tart.”
Overall: “Fun beer! The lemon notes are well done, and the underlying Berliner weisse comes through with some grainy notes and a tart Lacto that isn't overpowering. The lemon brightens the whole thing up. The aroma really delivers on the citrus whereas the flavor provides this nice herbal character that cuts through the tartness. It is delicate, light, and refreshing with some flavors that worked well together. Easy drinker for a hot day.”

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.
