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, Azzaca, Idaho 7 (NJ7), Satus, Santium, Tomahawk, and Columbus. Available on draft seasonally.O.G.: 1.060;50 BU’S.

Editor: Please make note of the hop variety when ordering and rate under the correct variant rather than this generic entry if possible

papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - MAR 16, 2005
On [email protected]"s: Golden amber in color with a 1/4 inch (bar pour) white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with citrus. Flavor starts lightly grapefruity with a hint of pine finishing kinda dry with an orange peel bitterness. Hoppy and flavorfull without being over the top with hops.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Draught at the brewpub, sterling version, 5.8%, 42 IBU. Gold with a white head. Aromas of doughy malt, and light spicy and mango/tropical fruit hops. Medium-sweet, bready malt flavor with a spicy, resiny hop flavor and bitterness. Nice hop flavor, but not high on the hop intensity. Interesting, but gets pretty overshadowed by the other hoppy beers in the stable.

Enniskillen (2055) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 13, 2009
Nice amber gold with a nice white head. Aroma is an initial pine hoppiness, followed by fruit, and a fresh hop like accent. Taste is a straight forward hoppiness with little depth to it, light alcohol, some honey like sweetness.
