    I was hoping you could help me crowd source a list of single hop beers you know of, and the hop used. Thought this could be a useful resource for folks like me who are trying to leave the trademark flavors of different hop varieties. Thanks for your help.

    For starters:
    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - Cascade
    Anchor Steam Liberty Ale - Cascade
    Bell's Two Hearted Ale - Centennial
    Founder's Centennial IPA - Centennial
    Brooklyn Sorachi Ace - Sorachi Ace

    Rock Art Brewery has a Simcoe IPA that's available on tap various places, probably not much outside of VT though, I really dig it.
    Hill Farmstead Brewery has a whole series of single hopped IPAs and DIPAs although those too are probably hard to find outside VT.

    Mikkeller has a single hop series as well with a fresh batch released a couple of weeks ago. no bottled on dates so you'll be chancing picking up one of last years :slight_frown: however, i have had quite a few of these on tap and they are good and showcase the hop varietals well. should be accessible in new york.

    SNPA also utilizes Magnum and Perle hops.

    I think Gumballhead is all Amarillo, and Arrogant Bastard is all Chinook.
    Surly Hell is all Sterling
    Pilsner Urquell is all Czech Saaz

    It's not going to help you much (if at all), but one of my locals, Boundary Bay, has beeen doing a series of single hop Pale Ales over the last few years. They're up to around 20 or so. The Amarillo has been my favorite so far.

    Hermitage Brewing also does a Single Hop IPA series, which includes:
    • Magnum
    • El Dorado
    • Simcoe
    • Citra
    • Sorachi Ace
    I actually had the Simcoe IPA last night and it was pretty solid. Nothing mind-blowing, but a nice beer.

    Nelson is Nelson Sauvin, and Southern Cross. thus not single hop

    You must have got lucky. I live right next to the brewery and almost every one has been a sweet buttery mess without much hop kick.

    Yeah, they definitely "over-malted" the beer (I'm assuming to try and balance it out), but doing so didn't let much hop profile shine through. Like I said, a nice beer, but was hoping for much more.

    Crystal is a very under utilized hop. Dangerous Man released a super hopped pale ale today that used only crystal hops...may need to stop for one today.

    I had the Citra back in January at the Concord Winter Brews fest. I thought it was one of the better beers being poured. Had another single hop one from them I picked up at BevMo and it wasn't very memorable.

    Great idea! I'd suggest making a second sheet for additions and locking the first sheet. That way no accidental deletions happen.

    Those flying dog varietys are fucking amazing examples. All of them.

    I Agree, crystal hero was phenomenal. I haven't had many beers that showcase crystal hops, but more brewers should try it.
