    It seems the author only drinks IPAs. These hops are used in other beer styles you know.

    Quite the list. Gives me some new things to look out for beyond the usual Mosaic and Citra I gravitate to. Awesome!

    I hate Simcoe hops. Single hopped with Simcoe? No thanks! To me, Simcoe beers taste like cat urine.“

    I have never tasted cat urine myself. My immediate question is what prompted you to taste cat urine in the first place??

      I own three cats. I change their litter boxes regularly. I know what cat urine smells like. Not everyone gets that aroma out of Simcoe. Everyone’s genetics are different and dictate what and how much you smell of certain compounds.

    Fun read! Another one of my favorites right now is Nelson.

    Let’s go international with craft hops!

    Nelson Sauvin

    I’ve had in in Treehouse’s Bright w/Nelson IPA but it seems to be popping up more frequently.

    It sports a clean, earthy and green flavor. Honestly the profile is very reminiscent of Sauvignon blanc grapes. It doesn’t have the tradition citrus flavors, leaning more towards notes of green grapes and passion fruit!

      I’m a fan of the Nelson as well. It’s another one of those love/hate hops. I’m just glad I’m in the love category.

    Great list. Although you’re missing one of the trendiest hops right now – Galaxy! Cashmere and Vic Secret have also been fairly trendy lately. Hope to see an expanded and/or amended list in the future!

      This list was exclusively American developed hops. We can look at international hops soon!
