Karrikin IPA variety pack launches

Karrikin’s latest excursion into IPA might satisfy more than just the palate. Our travels have brought a special series of IPAs with hops procured from America, Germany, and New Zealand. Pack up, grab your passport, and ready yourself for the trip of a lifetime with Hop Trekker, as this IPA variety pack launches!

If you’re familiar with the wine world, you might’ve heard the french word terroir thrown around quite a bit. Meaning, “the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate”, terroir, as you might imagine, can be attributed to brewing as well.

In addition to being thoughtfully brewed for your consumption, Hop Trekker studies the terroir of one of our favorite American hops, Cascade, and its varietals from Germany (Solero), and New Zealand (Taiheke).

What's inside the variety pack?

American IPA

Along with American-grown Cascade hops, this American IPA is complemented by El Dorado and Amarillo for floral and citrus aromas with a slightly fruity flavor.

German IPA

Cascade’s German cousin, Solero, introduces strong fruit aromas and tropical flavors. It’s joined by Akoya in this IPA for a touch of herb and spices.

New Zealand IPA

Taiheke hops blend well with Nelson Sauvin, Wakatu, and Moutere for a bright, floral, and citrus forward IPA.

While drinking Hop Trekker, we hope you’ll experience how the same style of hop changes in flavor based on where it’s grown in the world! We also hope it’s a trip you’ll want to take over, and over, and over again!

Where can I find Hop Trekker IPA variety pack?

Find Hop Trekker at your favorite retail stores, including Kroger and in Karrikin’s taproom beginning next week!
