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.

Total Score: 4 out of 5
Tasted on tap at brewpub in a Willybecher glass. It poured a beautiful copper color with some chill haze and everlasting white foam, sheets of Belgian lace. Extremely pleasant hops aroma, seemed like familiar German noble characteristics but with a lemony, flowery, honey-like, green-tea twist. One of my all-time favourite aroma hops. Very tasty biscuity malt backbone, mild buttery diacetyl and vanilla aromas (a little pils malt in the mix?) Light-medium body, strong carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. A nice, nuanced, single-hop IRA. Well-crafted and highly drinkable.
