Review: Three Hop Waters to Try

Hop water is carbonated water flavored with natural hops and a great replacement for your nightly beer.

I bought a pack of each of these three hop waters and enjoyed them for about a week before sharing my thoughts. Who knew there would be so many nuances to your hop water, ha!

IPW is a pioneer in the hop water industry and has been around for nearly a decade. I can see why. This had the most prominent hop flavor out of any I've tried. It was the only one that I could sip with food and still taste the hops. If I was just going to buy one out of all three, it would be this, though it was slightly more expensive than the others.

Aslan Brewing is an organic brewery out of Bellingham, WA. They use Cascade and Chinook hops for this refreshing drink, which give it a nice hint of citrus and mildly bitter finish. This one was a bit more mellow than the IPW, but I still enjoyed the flavor and excellent carbonation. I was able to find this at PCC, but if you don't live in the PNW you may have to check their website for distribution info.

Hoppy Refresher is a zingy, dry-hopped sparkling water. Unlike the other two, this one is flavored with lemon and lime citrus, and I did really enjoy the flavor. However, the added citrus overpowered the hoppy notes and honestly, for the price, I'd probably just get a pack of lime La Croix next time.

Happy clean drinking this spring. Leave me a comment with some of your favorite non-alcoholic products, I'd love to hear from you. Cheers!
