Each time we make this ale we pick a different single variety of hops and use them exclusively in the brew. The malt bill stays fairly consistent from batch to batch so as to allow the distinctive hop flavors to come through. Here are just a few of the hops used in the past: Simcoe, Vanguard, Sterling, YCR-004, Amarillo, Satus, Santium, Tomahawk, and Columbus. Available on draft seasonally.O.G.: 1.060;50 BUíS

SinH4 (1242) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2015
Tardif version. Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Pale golden color with small white head. Slight grapefruit, malty-grainy, nice bitterness, nice fruitiness, easy to drink. Simple, but excellent drinkability. Some crispness from the carbonation. Nice!

bartzluke (400) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2015
3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian Riverís ďeverything on tapĒ sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again? A little tropical fruit and a pleasant bitterness .

rosenbergh (8865) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Draught at the Russian River Brewing Co, Santa Rosa, CA.
Tardif version.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweet hops in a mild aroma. Mild bitterness and mild hops in the flavour. A bit faceless hop variety.

Idaho #7 version.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Sweet fruit, tangerine and soda hops in an amazingly delicious hoppy aroma. Soda hops, moderate bitterness, dryness and orange peel in the flavour. Very tasty.

Iím not quite sure how the rate this as these two varieties of this beer are completely different. Iíll go with the Idaho #7 version.

swoopjones (7008) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 14, 2015
draft at Russian River, solid IPA but has some tough competition on its own draft board. medium bodied, citrusy, some mango. Overall, a nice IPA that took a back seat to Blind Pig & Pliny

Gription79 (2683) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Had on draft at the brewery. I got notes of floral and fruity hops with a soft onion character. There was a sweet maltiness. Not bad.

slowrunner77 (7441) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"(Sterling hops version) a clean, simple, slightly citrus aroma and flavor. it was quite good, and I love the idea of highlighting each hop veriety, but their other hop bombs are better."

BOLTZ7555 (2985) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2014
On tap @ RR! 14 karat pour with a small ivory crown. Grapefruit pith, mango, papaya, and guava all present themselves in the nose and on the palate. Well crafted but not robust. Lots of subtleties that make it a cut above other single-hop beers Iíve had before but still not terrible complex. Glad I had a chance to try this!

HonkeyBra (3827) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Galaxy hops, if I recall correctly. Golden pour with a white head. Aroma of pine, orange peel, and citrus. Some pineapple and mango. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and nice. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, Crisp bitter finish. Pretty cool, bro.
