With so many different hops available these days, it's impossible for each homebrewer to brew all of them single-handedly. Jim's Beer Kit is a great place to read what worked for other homebrewers, but it's especially handy when commercial brewers do this "dirty-work" for us. I taste every single-hop beer I can find, and post ratings to Ratebeer, which serves as a handy online resource whenever I need to remember my impressions of a certain hop. It occured to me these thoughts might benefit other nerdy homebrewers on this forum too.
Disclaimer: these are my own subjective opinionated conclusions, based on just one sample, at one specific moment in time. I am frequently surprised by how much another brewer's results differ, even using the same single hop variety. Your mileage may vary, and I certainly don't think my taste buds are superior to anyone else's.

Tasted at their tap-room in a sampler glass, then got a growler to bring home. It pours a clear orange amber colour with slight chill haze, sudsy white foam, long-lasting with lots of lace. Grainy and slightly caramelly, neutral ale fermentation, with emphasis squarely on fruity El Dorado hop aromas and flavours. I understand the peach and white grape claim, but I also perceived dried apricot, juicy fruit gum, faint mango, passionfruit, cantalope melon. None of the tired ol’ grapefruit bomb aspect. The diverse fruitness melded nicely with the crystal malt candy-sweet contribution. A simple recipe but a uniquely nuanced hoppy APA. I just killed my third growler fill of this treat.
