High Hops The Power Of Zeus 3.5
Crisp, deep crimson and bright amber body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head that leaves an ugly lace. Aroma of bright grassy and floral hop note with some malt and a little dryness, but nothing to complex. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong floral bite with a dry flavour, some light resinous flavours and a touch of white grapes - not much else. Aftertaste shows a great yeast and herbal note with little other bittering notes. Overall, a decent beer with some nice herbal notes and a grassy finish - strong and floral, but doesn’t show much malt nor depth. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Colorado Liqour Outlet in Colorado Springs, Colorado on 02-January-2016, purchased by my boss, sampled at home in Washington when the Broncos won the Super Bowl on 07-February-2016.

High Hops Dark Days of December Dark Edi 3.8
The saving grace of this series of beers ,this beer was a little sweet and had a nice full flavor. The only one that I would probably have again, though I would recommend the coffee version to people that like coffee beers

High Hops Dark Days of December Sriracha Stout 1.3
I am not a fan of spicy beers, and this beer is no exception. The spices in the aroma are even worse in the beer. Could not drink one third of my sample.

High Hops Dark Days of December The Dark Juan 3.5
Along with the dark EDI , this is the only beer of the series that I would have again. The coffee is light but noticeable more so in the aroma than in the body. A nice easy finish

High Hops Dark Days of December Coconut Milk Stout 2.8
This beer was actually less sweet than I expected, in the coconut wasn’t nearly as prevalent as I thought it would be. Just ok

High Hops Dark Days of December Cookie Porter 1.6
Smells nice, like a cookie. Other than that this was undrinkable. Sweet with a semi curdled feel to it. With the Sri Racha stout, one of the two worst here.

High Hops Dark Days of December Keg Nog 2.8
This had some spices in the aroma cinnamon and nutmeg, which were also present in the beer. A little vanilla in the body as well, but it just wasn’t that good. Didn’t really remind me of egg nog.

High Hops Dark Days of December Dark Nut Cup 2.7
Has a nice peanut butter aroma. But other than that this is a disappointment. The flavor have some sweet peanut butter that doesn’t really work with the Milk Stout base.

High Hops Picea Pale Ale 4.5
Brought a growler of this to our family Christmas Eve party and it was a huge hit. Some hops in the aroma but the spruce is quite evident as well. The spruce has a way of mellowing out the hops in a way but they are still noticeable. Really delicious. Probably my favorite of all the beers I had at this brewery.

High Hops Hinter Winter 3.9
This was nice. The orange and cinnamon are faint but give the beer a slight winter feel. I’m guessing this is the Amber beer tweaked a little, as it has a similar smoothness. Nice.

High Hops The Pink One 3.4
For a style I don’t enjoy much, this was pretty refreshing. The raspberry and lemon are both noticeable but not sweet. Equally important, this isn’t too salty either. A pleasant surprise here.

High Hops Windsor’s Wee Heavy 3.6
Awfully light in appearance for the style, a brownish color. This was pretty nice. The malt body is enough that it isn’t too sweet. Decent.

High Hops Chernobley 2.4
Just slightly more drinkable than the original. It adds sweet cherries to the already sweet syrupy base. Did not enjoy.

High Hops The Noble One 2.2
This wasn’t very good. Has a sweetness and funk to the aroma. The body is syrupy and mostly sticky sweet.

High Hops Brown Dog IPA 4.2
This smells hoppy and looks fine. The body on this really is fairly similar the Dr. Pats ar first, except the finish is aggressively bitter. Really has that punch that their standard IPA lacks. Nice.

High Hops Dr. Pat’s Double IPA 3.8
I found this to be a middle of the road IPA in terms of bitterness. Looks nice and is pretty easy to drink. Decent.

High Hops Russian Imperial Stout 2.4
Other than looking nice, this beer didn’t work for me. I found the alcohol to be glaringly obvious, with a super aggressive aroma and a body to match.

High Hops The Power Of Zeus 3.8
A pretty simple aroma, this is a nice pale ale; nothing really stands out in the body. The finish is fairly dry.

High Hops The Foot Warmer 3.7
Smells nice. A little thin, though tasty. Sweet with not a lot of molasses. A light tasting Barleywine. Good, not great.

High Hops Barrel Aged Honeyed One 4.1
This beer is very similar to the original in aroma and appearance. There is a hint of the bourbon barrel in the body, but it doesn’t really do much to the original. Good stuff.

High Hops The Honeyed One 4.1
The honey mixes with the malt in the aroma. The body makes it clear there isn’t any honey,as it has a nice rich flavor of malt, caramel, with hops in the finish. Quite tasty.

High Hops The Honeyed One 2.5
22 oz bottle into a shaker, purchased at the brewery for $3. Clear amber appearance with a small, lacy tan head. Aroma of light honey, musty yeast, husky grains and stale hops. Similar flavor, medium to heavy sweetness with a bit of grassy, piney bitterness in there too. Medium body with a syrupy feel with a sweet finish. Pretty rough and hard to drink overall. Booost... (Note: I accidentally left this bottle in my car for like a week, I don’t think it froze, but it may have been an older bottle too, considering the price)

High Hops Dr. Pat’s Double IPA 4
Oranje-achtige kleur met een witte schuimkraag. Popelmoes geur, groene grassige hop. Smaak: Totaal niet in balans, maar o zo lekker. De bitterheid van de hop bijt agressief, maar laat ik dit nu net leuk vinden!

High Hops Dr. Pat’s Double IPA 4.1
Flarra Oliver Twist. Doftar milt fruktigt lite blött gräs. Medelfyllig känsla i munnen av lite jordkällare å lite lite frukt . Ganska rejäl beska rakt igenom . Påminner faktiskt en del om Rye Dipa. Fin amerikanare utan den jättefruktiga stilen. Kul Oliver Twist har så många kvalitets öl i kylskåpet .

High Hops The Dark One 3.6
On tap at the Swirl Wine Bar in Manitou Springs. Dark, muddy brown, with a tan ring. The nose is milk chocolate, vanilla, and some light licorice. Sweet and malty, with a light, pleasant bitterness. Medium to heavy body, smooth, and creamy. This is a nice, sweet, and interesting stout.

Aroma of peppers and malt. Medium body with flavors of chili pepper, malt and sweet honey. The finish is sweet and hot with a honey and habanero aftertaste. Decent overall.
