Less than a year after its release, our Hopnosis IPA has racked up a considerable number of accolades from thought leaders and tastemakers in the beer industry. Having already won the gold at the European Beer Star and silver at the Brussels Beer Challenge, Hopnosis has just claimed another distinction. Wine Enthusiast ranked Hopnosis #18 in its list of the top 50 beers in 2022, giving it a solid 96 points out of a possible 100.
“There are more than 9,000 breweries in the United States and many thousands more around the world,” Wine Enthusiast wrote in the prologue to their list. “These breweries are standing on the shoulders of committed professionals, scientists and farmers who have built a base of knowledge that creates a dynamic and engaging drinking experience.”

This list represents the very best submitted to Wine Enthusiast, tasted throughout 2022.
“There is great skill involved in having different hops present as individual and collectively in each sip, and this beer pulls it off,” said Wine Enthusiast about Hopnosis. “The aromas are decidedly tropical with candied citrus, with spikes to fresh pine and an underlying dankness that al come together to enchant the taste buds sip after sip. This is a West Coast body wearing an East Coast jacket, and it’s fashionable for our times.”
