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

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Part of a sampler at the brewery. this one pours a super light golden with a small white ring of head. Very sweet citrus aroma, raw vegetal hops, grass, interesting. Flavor follows with lots of pine and vegetal hop bitterness, slightly dirty finish, not much sign of citrus here but that's ok. a very light bodied pale ale and medium carbonation. Overall the finish takes away from this, as it is a touch unpleasant. Only OK.

Ferris (8510) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Hop 291 - Floral and sweet tropical fruit. Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Lots of tropical fruit with a hint of bitterness. A little too tropical and sweet, but still nice.

mcberko (10105) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Russian River, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma is very nicely hoppy, with notes of pine and floral hops. Flavour is quite strong for a pale ale, more like an IPA, with notes of pine, floral hops, and just enough crackery malt to back. So piney on the palate. Highly drinkable and thirst-quenching. Excellent beer.

On tap at the brewery in Santa Rosa, pours a clear light golden color with a small head. Nose is fresh ripe peaches, with some tropical fruit as well. Taste is sweet with ripened fruit, pleasant and delicious . Finish is sweet and ends on the same fruity notes. Great IPA. Quaff Score 9 / 10

zgaier (1717) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2013
On tap at Russian River brewery in Santa Rosa. Pours golden with a white head and sweet, fruit, hoppy aroma. Taste is of tropical fruits up front, with hops, citrus, caramel, and toasty notes leading to a bitter, dry finish. Nice IPA

joeneugs (4453) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. I didnít hear very many good things about this one, so I only ordered a sample. I wish I could have had more because it was darn good! Light golden yellow with a white head. The aroma was floral and citrusy with hints of tropical fruit. The flavor was the same. Very fresh and hop forward. It may suffer a bit next to Pliny and Blind Pig or even Row 2, but it was a very nice, light hop forward beer.

Alla spian al brewpub. Líipa della casa che mi Ť piaciuta di meno, piuttosto scarica e meno intensa rispetto alle sue sorelle maggiori...ha un grado alcoolico perÚ decisamente + abbordabile.

bytemesis (4969) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Tap, 2013, experimental hop #462. Pours ultra clear amber orange, small beige head, great lacing. Aroma is light, piney, caramel. Flavor is about the same, light sweet and light bitter, but the finish has medium bitterness and a bit of a metallic note. Light body. Meh.

maltman53 (435) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 12, 2013
On tap at the brewery, the Hop 2 It is designed to show off a single hop variety in each version - and this one doesnít disappoint. Pours light orange with nice head and lasting lace. Good malt/hop middle palate balance, finishing with a citrusy wash.

illidurit (2245) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Appley piney hops, mild, fruity and not very robust. Not sure which hop variety this edition was, but it would be better utilized in a blend.
