COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 BU’S

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2013
Pours cloudy pale golden amber with a small white head leaving la e. Aroma is sweet malty fruity citric. Flavor is a bit sourish acidy citric malty bready and has some sweetness. Nice fruity bitter finish.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: The pour is a golden orange color with a somewhat minimal head and nice lacing. S: The nose contains some herbal, earthy, and citrus (oranges) from the hops. Not much in the way of malt in the nose. T: The taste is much like the nose. Not overly bitter, but a definite presence. Noticeable orange flavor as well. M: On the lighter side of things, which is by no means a bad thing in this case. D: Very drinkable as it is not overpowering like some of the other hoppy Russian River beers.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - JUL 28, 2009
On tap. Meh. It’s hard to get excited with this beer, even if it is RR. Give me their house IPA any day. The aroma has a nice showing of citrus and a touch of iced tea. Flavor has some minor citrus character, a touch of bready malts with a lingering bitter finish. Great idea, just a so-so beer.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2009
On tap at the brewpub on 6/30/09. Pours yellow, little white head. Nice citrus aroma with hints of grapefruit and orange. Only mildly bitter up front, but then has a long dry finish.

Ramenen (464) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUL 9, 2009
Drank it on tap at the brewery. A very light IPA, almost watery. The single hop recipe makes it unidimensional.

dchmela (2600) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at RR, this is the Sterling version. Pours a light gold with a thick white head. Aroma is light smooth hop aroma, a little orange. Taste is smooth crisp malt, a little grassy and not spicy or over the top. A very mellow hop variety that makes a unique ipa.

gkost (1711) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
On tap @ RR. Pours a clear gold color. Nose was some earthy and piney hops. Flavor was a light sweetness, some mild hop presence. A nice session beer.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2009
On tap at RR. Bright golden orange color, very little carbonation. Big grassy hop aroma and flavor, hay, light spices, light yeast. Really nice, like how it lets the hops shine without a lot of other stuff getting in the way. Very drinkable, not too much lingering bitterness.
