New Belgium Brewing Company Voodoo Ranger IPA
What the brewers say
“Bursting with tropical aromas and juicy fruit flavors from Mosaic and Amarillo hops, this golden IPA is perfectly bitter with a refreshing, sublime finish.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “High hops aroma that’s grapefruit/orange/lemon. Somewhat dank and piney with an earthy floral note. Light malt sweetness. There’s a toastiness in the malt that kind of reminds me of peanut butter.”
Flavor: “The hops profile showcases lemon, some melon, pineapple, and a bit of pine and onion. Body is slightly light. Some nice balanced sweetness to bitterness.”
Overall: “Well centered for the style. Big West Coast hops aroma with a bit of malt to support it.”

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.
