Every IPX release is an opportunity to compare and contrast ways that hops affect beer’s flavor and aroma profiles. Each beer in this three-years-and-running series is brewed with same base recipe, with the same finishing hop schedule, and ends up at 60 IBU and 6% ABV. The latest in the series showcases Organic El Dorado hops from Jackson Hop farm in Caldwell, Idaho. A relative newcomer to the brewing industry, El Dorado hops were developed by CLS Farms in 2008 and released commercially in 2010. Organic El Dorado IPX is a light bodied ale showcasing tropical fruit and pear hop flavors and aromas. We think you’re going to love it. This makes El Dorado the ninth bottle release in the single hop ale series. For a limited time you can still grab the IPX Simcoe bottles from our two pubs, giving you the opportunity to try Simcoe and El Dorado side by side. Previously featured in the IPX bottles include Organic Cascade, Organic and Salmon-Safe Centennial, Amarillo, Organic and Salmon-Safe Chinook, Organic Ahtanum, Organic Fuggle, Salmon-Safe Mt. Hood, and Organic Simcoe hops.

Bomber from Taniguchi. Served in the same glass as the other IPX for ease of comparison. The same light beige foam but I’d say the body is more opaque. The bottle says I should get tropical fruits and pear from El Dorado hops but I get more piney and perhaps a hint of candied sugary cinnamon pears. The beer is bitter, spicy stone fruit. Weird as it is not what I was expecting but OK.

adamnowek (3386) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2016
Super murky orange gold colour with a weird, puffy head. Aroma is grapefruit and tangerine. Pretty dank taste with some weird sourness. Dry finish.

aleksander9 (1910) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2016
Hazy copper with white head. Tea, caramel and green. Sweet, dank and dry finish. Okay.

Bakgården Både & 150916. Deep golden-orange with an off-white head. Aroma is pine, malt, hop, resin, grapefruit. flavour is pine, malt, hop, grapefruit, resin, spices, grain. Medium body. Nice beer.

yngwie (17261) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2016
On tap at Både&. It’s a clear, dark golden beer with a small, dense beige head. The aroma is quite piney, with resins and citrus zest. Not much malts detected. It’s full bodied and quite dry on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Bitter, citrusy flavor, not much malty sweetness, lasting for a long time. Really tasteful and pleasant this one. Sort of quenching too. 160915

2016-02-22, tasting at Josh’s, 7-4-7-3-13=34
Hazy golden color, medium sized head. Nice citrus fruit aroma, mandarin, some fermenting grass (7-). The mouthfeel is dry; some crackery malt flavor, not enough quality actually, and the hop comes in with a strong herbaceus character, more than fruity, a bit of chicory in the final.
Not a bad beer, not exciting.

2016-02-01, draught at The Local, Bellingham, WA; 6.4% ABV, 6-4-6-3-11=30
Golden color, clean. Strong feeling of pineapple candy, light residual sweetness, light fruity hop resins.
Not the most convincing of the IPAs.

Panzuriel (2389) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Location: 22 oz bottle obtained through Tavour
Appearance: Apple juice amber. Hazy. Small head of white bubbles.
Nose: Citrus hops primary with some floral notes secondary
Taste: a nice balance of citrus hops with some decent malt sweetness. Perhaps some more delicate aspects of floral hops.
Body: thinner than medium. Maybe a bit on the too thin side
Parting thoughts: Nice Citrus IPA that is structured well for overall flavor. a tad thin on the mouthfeel for me overall.

Sledutah (7888) - Utah, USA - MAY 7, 2016
22oz bottle at the Beerhive

Pours slightly cloudy golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, caramel and dusty. Taste is floral, grapefruit and resin

Ok, but I wouldn’t order another one

Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2016
Dull amber. The aroma has more melon than Uzbekistan, some mandarina as well. Nice bitterness and has a very orangey hop note with orange skin bitterness. The malt character is actually a little bit weak.
