Fans of of hop flavors, HOP WTR will likely become your non-alcoholic go-to. Those of you who enjoy a variety of flavorful sparkling waters, ditto. Tasty, healthy product (non-alcoholic, no fat, no calories, no carbs, no sugar, no sodium, no caffeine) and great customer service. Highly recommended. Here’s my “why” (note that I have not been compensated in any way for this review):1) HOP WTR is a delicious and refreshing IPA alternative (especially the “classic” version, imho: crisp, citrusy, piney, and a whiff of earthiness), featuring a balanced mixture of Citra, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Azacca hops; clean, subtly complex, mouthwatering. I’ve had many good “alt IPA” products–Lagunitas Hoppy Refresher, Lagunitas IPNA, Sierra Nevada Hop Splash, etc.–but nothing compares to the crisp, refreshing, hop complexity of HOP WTR. If you’d like to add a little fruit to the mix, they use the same hop recipe in their peach, blood orange, lime, and mango varieties, each well-balanced, and all genuine flavors. No artificial tastes here at all.2) HOP WTR has also become my favorite sparkling water for all the flavorful, healthful reasons notes, but there are beautiful bonuses. First off, 108 mg of vitamin C. Second, they use sdaptogens, herbs and minerals that help manage stress and cortisol levels; HOP WTR is made with ashwagandha to support the ability to de-stress and unwind. Third, the HOP WTR recipe includes nootropics, supplements that boost your brain’s function by targeting specific neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamin; they use a 50 mg dose of mood-boosting L-Theanine that is shown to improve memory, decision-making, creativity and overall cognitive performance. Bottom line is that HOP WTR does genuinely help me de-stress and focus, but of course these qualities are going to be subjective for every consumer.3) Lastly, since I do still occasionally drink cocktails, I can attest to HOP WTR being a brilliant highball mixer for scotch and Japanese whiskies. HOP WTR classic is a great way to start experimenting, and then you can branch out to the fruit versions according to taste. Turns out hops play very nicely with these spirits. Sláinte! This is my all time favorite “fancy drink.” I use to make fun of my friend for drinking fancy drinks. Then I got sober and quit alcohol. Then I got into sparking water and then making it at hone. Now I’m hooked on HOP WTR. I’m often curious about the low ratings. Why did those low rating people purchase this? Anyway, if you like delicious sparkling healthy treats with a crispy kick, this is for you. It’s amazing. I’m trying to get the markets in Oklahoma City to start selling these.My only negative is the price. I wish there was a way to get a bulk discount. But I’ll gladly pay it if I have to. These fancy beverages are worth every penny. Review is for the Classic style. This water has a pleasant flavor though I would not consider it a great replacement for fans of IPAs. It does have a hop flavor in the background, but the most pronounced flavor is citrus and what seems to be something like lavender and/or fennel. It is refreshing and enjoyable, though at a premium cost. I purchased because I was curious about the nootropics and adaptogens. Do they accomplish what the makers intend or at least what they pitch? In my case, no. I’ve had four of the six, to date, and the result has not been a sense unwinding and relaxing. Instead, I have not noticed much beyond feeling a bit sleepy – though not necessarily relaxed. This isn’t really what I was looking for and, in fact, is a bit of a detraction from purchasing again. Others may have different reactions (or non-reactions, as the case may be). But, I’m one and done with this product. If I want an IPA-like hop water, I will head in a different direction (like Lagunitas and others) or I’ll go for one of several good to excellent NA/AF brews. I don’t regret the purchase (and it might be just the ticket for some), but I’m also not in for another round. It tastes like sparkling water. Extremely expensive. Do not buy it. This Hop Wtr met my expectations! After 1, I definitely felt a calmness and an improvement in my mood especially after work. It felt very nice. Went ahead and drank 3 the whole night and yes I was feeling pretty nice! No crappy feeling that you get with drinking alcohol. No “hangxiety” the morning after. No grogginess. I sleep very well after drinking 1 or two! I ordered the classic flavor. It’s not bad. Just very plain hoppy taste with some refreshing crisp. I’d say the pack is a bit expensive for the amount of cans you get. Thickness is the equivalent of a light beer. I will order again but in a different flavor. They should definitely consider lowering the price…. Pros: This product tastes great and is very refreshing. The ingredients are great and it helps me to relax at night. I love that not only is it non-alcoholic, but it’s actually good for you. Cons: The cans are horrible. Quite a few were busted upon arrival. One was completely split open and empty (obviously). Others were puffed out on the tops and bottoms so that they cannot sit on a table (had to pour it into a glass), and the tab opener didn’t work (had do pry them open with a knife).For the price, the packaging should for sure be better and I hope they improve this. Perfect combination of two things I love: beer and sparkling water. Great hoppy flavor (especially if you’re a fan of centennial hops), super satisfying bubbles, and definitely has a nice calming effect (assuming it’s the theanine). As someone who has struggled to replace calorie & carb heavy IPAs (not a huge fan of the low cal options), this is guilt free enough to drink regularly, and hoppy enough to satisfy that IPA craving. Oh, and I can still get up for an early morning workout ;)Excited to try other flavor and hopefully see it in stores! Check Price
