Pours cloudy, honey gold on the brownish side with a slight head that leaves a fine coat of lacing.

The aroma is that of resin, although a bit grassy and crisp, with a light, toasted malt. There is surprisingly little citrus.

There is light bitterness with a modest lingering finish and light caramel.

A full body with a hint of alcohol, soft carbonation, and soft texture.

This was enjoyed as part of a self training exercise to distinguish hop varieties, but it would still make a fine component to a meal. Refreshing.

Sampled from a Harp Nonic, alongside Amarillo Single Hop.

A solid orange color with a very thick, sticky, white head. The head is long lasting and quite robust. Slight haze (yeast?)...

Citrus (orange-like) and flowery hop aroma with a touch of lightly toasted malt.

Mouthfeel is light to medium in body, wet and clean.

Taste is fairly light for the style. A touch of light malt and subtle orange taste. Bitterness fades in midway through with a lingering aftertaste.

Certainly a decent AIPA. A bit lightweight overall in character, yet definitely refreshing and easy drinking. Nicely balanced, unassuming, yet a pleasure to drink.

A yellowish amber color with tiny particulate throughout and a pretty decent white head with plenty of lacing. My take from the nose is just mellow caramel malt with a yeasty herbal hop. Nice. The flavor brings a nice tangy grassy hop over a grainy rye bed. Very nice but relatively simple. Medium-light bodied with mild but satisfactory carbonation. A mellow, medium feel that makes for a very drinkabe IPA.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... I know... It's old. But it's been in my fridge for over 2 years (first batch).

A: Pours a fairly translucent redish orange with about a half finger of off-white head. The foam settles fairly quickly leaving only a rocky ring around the glass.

S: The nose is sweet malt, a touch of spice, and just a dab of light cirtus. There is almost a berry quality to this beer.

T: It starts out sweet and subdued. There is only a mild about of bitterness, and the berries are there. The finish is pine bitterness.

M: Medium bodied beer. Nothing lingering.

O: This beer is pretty forgetable. It's not good, but it's not bad. It's just straight middle of the road.

Poured into Hill Farmstead Tulip.

A 2 finger head with time big time retention forms above a nice orange body. Sticky foamy lacing is left around the glass

S Sweet caramel malt with citrus and a tiny pine note.

T Hefty malt backbone carries through to the end. Some piney hops with muted citrus. Hops have faded but still there and the balance is nice. Fruity, sweet finish that turns to bitter and lingers

M Medium mouthfeel with a medium to lower carbonation. Feels pretty creamy and nice

O good stuff. Scent and taste has died a bit but still tasty stuff.

tulip glass.

a - pours a hazy, deep copper and gave me a thin cap of off white head that calmed to a film right away. no lacing.

s - toasted malt, vinous dried fruits, slight earthiness. not getting any of the citrus that people associate with cascade hops.

t - strong, resinous, mouth puckering bitterness dominates the palate. some dark fruity notes, mostly prunes but maybe some fig as well. caramel malt character comes out as it gets warmer. was not prepared for just how intense a flavor this one has.

m - heavier side of medium, feels slightly gooey. adequate carbonation.

o - this one was a little hard to drink. enjoyable, just not for the faint of taste bud. i got way different characteristics from this beer than other people; maybe i got an old bottle?

Served on tap in a tasting glass at Bangers & Lace. Tettnanger, Palisade, Cascade, Galena, Super Galena, and Simcoe were all tasted side by side.

Appearance The appearance of the single hop series does not really vary from beer to beer. Each one is a golden caramel color with a fluffy whit ehead that displays good retention and leaves a web of lace down the glass.

Smell: There is a good amount of grapefruit and citrus in the aroma.

Taste: The flavor starts sweet, with a growing caramel slowly covering pieces of orange zest and juicy grapefruit. The finish is moderately bitter.
Mouthfeel: Like the others, this has a medium body and medium carbonation.

Overall: This is a nice beer. The issue with this series is that many hops are best stacked on top of each other to create a fuller taste profile. By isolating the hops the weaknesses of each variety come through.
