Single Hop Series
Monogamy is our ongoing, single hop series of pale ales -- a delicious and interesting (controlled) experiment designed to give us all a better understanding of what a hop can do when it flies solo. We keep our base recipe and brewing processes the same, but switch up the hop variable each time. A particularly troublesome beer for those who feel they....Must. Collect. Them. All.
Throughout the years we've brewed and rebrewed this recipe with over 20 different hops, and in 2017 we expanded the series to include double dry-hopped versions (for that nth degree of hope aromatics).
Loral: This American hop exhibits aromas of cut flowers and tangerine while showcasing stone fruit, dried apple and a pleasant but subtle hint of rosemary on the palate. Finishes with a lightly pithy, crisp bitterness.
