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

Poursa golden-orange hue with a halo of a head. Aromas of caramel, roasted malt, a little honey. Medium bodied with flavors of caramel, lager yeast, mild bitternss. A decent session ale and much better than russian rivers other single hoped brew, Dr. Zeus.

100% Cascade Cross Aroma is mostly hops with a nice grapefruit citrus and light pine note. There is a malt backbone present though with some sweet bread and cracker notes. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head that perseveres as a thin film on top and on the edges. Good lacing with small legs. Flavor is rather hop forward but it does have balanced cracker and bread character to balance the hops. The hop character is grapefruit and pineapple with some pine resin to balance out the fruit. The bitterness is fairly moderate which really allows the malt to shoe through in the finish in a bready way. Mouthfeel is medium to medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a good beer and definitely not retired, but its not their best. The balance is nice, but the finish to this hop is a bit lacking and has a slightly odd grassy note.

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 (466) - 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.

Alla spian al brewpub. L’ipa della casa che mi è piaciuta di meno, piuttosto scarica e meno intensa rispetto alle sue sorelle maggiori...ha un grado alcoolico però decisamente + abbordabile.

The nose was big in citrus w/ hints of flowers and light fruit. The flavor was citrusy and flowery but light. The beer poured an orange / yellow color w/ slight head and very slight lacing. The mouthfeel was watery and thin flavored, light bodied and creamy.

On tap at the brewery, the Hop 2 It is designed to show off a single hop variety in each version - and this one doesn’t disappoint. Pours light orange with nice head and lasting lace. Good malt/hop middle palate balance, finishing with a citrusy wash.
