Our latest Single Hop brew using CTZ hops. An unfiltered Pale Ale with huge grapefruit notes, a hint of caramel malts and a good bittering balance.

Bomber from Hamilton MT. Good hop character along with a really good bit of maltiness. This brew is highly hopped. I thought that it could have very easily been an IPA. Pretty robust APA.

22 oz. bottle shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! I think- think- this was the CTZ version. The bottle doesn’t say. Pours a super murky, dull gold color with a small head that leaves a ring made of big bubbles. Aroma of citrusy, earthy, dank, oniony hops- really odd variety- with some sweet malts, dry grains, and herbs. Flavor of dry grains, grass, herbs, onions, and lemon. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, herbal, citrusy mouthfeel. Very interesting APA.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
22oz bomber pours hazy gold with copper hues and tall off white head. The aroma has a good deal of spicy hop notes, a touch of lemon like citrus and sort of an herb grassiness. The taste is pretty fresh and crisp with tangy spicy hops that are thinly rimmed with a lemon to lime citrus sensation. Pretty nice stuff but there is a slightly out of place tart to acidic feature here.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle, from my Maudite glass. Pours cloudy goldm with a green hue; 1-finger cream-coloured head, with fine lacing. Nose is grassy, with grapefruit, lemongrasss, dust: Nice lifted aroma, easy to pick apart. Flavours are dry and grassy, with lemon, soap, and really big earthiness. Long lemongrass finish. Solid.

22 oz. bottle- hoping this is the right one, my bottle says nothing about what hop it is, it just says single hop ale, how do you know the difference, very annoying- Pours hazy orange with a huge fluffy white head, it has created a volcano look, and massive blanket of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit hops, spicy, fresh cut grass. The taste is sweet syrupy hops, tangy, mild bitterness up front followed by more bitterness after the swallow. Body is somewhat light, carbonation is high. Overall this is a unique hop, assuming it is CTZ, never had a tangy syrupy yet light and fruity hop like this.

Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Excellent aroma very citrus and grassy. Very nice. Tastes nice clean crops and well hoped nice brew. Just hopy enough with a certain sing to it.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Orange hued golden, hazy, large rocky white head, very nice lacing.   Sweet nose of pink grapefruit, some floralness, and a bit of candied hops.   Soft hops on the tongue, body is light.   Flavorful, but very shallow bitterness.   Clean on the exit, light, much more like a Pale Ale.   Fairly crisp, and very clean.   Not a big IPA by any means, but enjoyable and easy to put back.   Its actually rather refreshing!

reebtogi (5731) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
650ml bomber pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head with some thin lacing left behind. Aroma of citrus hops and light caramel. Taste is citrusy hop bitterness balanced nicely with a caramel malty sweetness. This is a pretty decent pale with medium body and carbonation and just loaded with flavour.

nearbeer (4917) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2011
22 oz. I assume this is the correct one in the series, since I find no evidence of bottling of the others at this date. There is no wording or indication on the label as to what hop is the "Single". Orange-amber with a foamy ring of bubbles and nice lacing. Nose is mostly grapefruit and resin, with some caramel grain, and beeswax. Flavor is evergreen resin, honeycomb, orange and grapefruit zest. Light body is a little too fizzy, but that helps with the crispness of the hoppy finish.
