Our brewing team is passionate about ingredients. This series was created to celebrate, and to acknowledge the wide variation of hops. The same ingredients and process go into each IPA from the series, with only one difference- what type of hop is used. “This is a great series for both beer aficionados and novice beer drinkers,” comments Brewer Greg Filippi. “It gives the drinker an appreciation of each hop type. They can really pick out the individual flavors in other beers once they taste the hop on its own.”
Varieties will change seasonally. Could be Citra, Admiral, Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, etc.
Current varieties are:
Citra: Our most popular Single Hop IPA. Winner of Gold at California State Fair 2011 and 2012, four out of five “excellent” rating from Celebrator Beer News. Citra lives up to its name with a bright citrusy flavor. Beautiful bouquet of grapefruit with slight florals, nice traditional hoppy finish without being overly bitter or piney. When other breweries were scrambling for Citra hops, our team used their ninja ways to get these uber delicious hops for you.
Galaxy: Our brewing team is very excited about this hop. All the way from Australia, Galaxy is known for its high alpha acid, but it’s not just another bittering hop. Lovely passionfruit and citrus flavors coat your mouth and nose. The finish is quite bitter, crisp; the perfect combination for a true hop head.
Sorachi Ace: a Japanese hop known for its characteristic citrusy lemon flavor. Sorachi Ace is the third release of the series this year, following Ahtanum and Citra. Brewmaster Peter Licht is excited about the latest batch. Licht says,”Sorachi is an extremely interesting hop- lots of unusual fruit flavors including lemon and lemon zest. It is also the only hop to come from Japan. One of the reasons we started the single hop beer series was to get to use exotic hops like Sorachi Ace.”
