Hop flavor and aroma—it’s not just for beer anymore!

It’s a 100% hop-derived aqueous extract that’s clear, flowable, and completely soluble in cold-side beverage operations.
Available now in Citra®, Mosaic®, El Dorado®, and Centennial varieties.
We asked brewers what they thought of Hopkick. Amy Cartwright, Founder of Independence Brewing Co., said “We found HopKick enhanced the aroma of the hop water and smoothed out some of the bitterness. The aroma enhancement is excellent. We liked that the flavor did not add perceived bitterness." We can't wait to hear what you think!
Derived from pure hops, HopKick allows for “clean labeling” on ingredient declarations. Contains no emulsifiers or additives.
HopKick can be added throughout the fermentation and/or maturation process in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic applications.
At higher dose rates, achieve exact flavor and aroma outcomes in beverages that require specific hop varietal characteristics.
At lower dose rates, HopKick can help smooth out artificial sweeteners and amplify artificial flavors used in packaged beverages.
Eliminates losses associated with pellet absorption (approximately 10L per 1kg T90), for better yield efficiencies and less waste disposal.
Easy to dose in fermentation or maturation tanks, there’s no color translation or haze formation to the finished product.
