I had a few pints of a single hop Calypso IPA on draft by Cigar City this evening (Abraxas in Miami Beach). I liked it a lot. Lots of apple and pear, but none of the onion dankness that I have seen others use to describe the Calypso. It was smooth and not too bitter. I think I may make a MO SMASH with it, with a British ale yeast. I was pretty into it, and normally I like IPAs that are far more citrusy than this Cigar City Roaring Lion IPA.

Okay...tried my first one of these this evening.

Sinfully good Belgian. The taste of apple is moreso than pear...I think the pear comes along later on the palate. This is a delicious beer.

Here's the recipe I created for the Calypso hopped Belgian. I named it Angus Dei...Lamb of God

The aromatic malt comes through a bit in the aroma and the taste is very much of a Belgian. The flavor hops addition of Calypso is the right fit here.

Glad you like it. Also, if you named it after the band, I just saw them a couple weeks ago with in flames. Best metal concert I've seen so far

If its not after the band, well then I'm just happy calypso worked well! Recipe looks good

Edit: after seeing your username I'm guessing its not after the band haha! Oops

Just poured the first pint of an extract American Amber Ale @ 1064 using Calypso as primary bittering hop, finished with Challenger and Centennials during the last 10 minutes of the boil.

Again, this hop does not have any presence in the finish, just a smooth bittering. The Challengers and Centennials really shine and do not compete with any other hop flavor. This was a mere 30 minute extract boil and this beer came out excellent.

I'm not sure what the specs are, but the Calypso hop must have a fairly low co-humolone %. The bitterness is unmistakably smooth.

Love this hop and just popped it into another pils as a bittering addition, we'll see how it turns out as I turned up the Tettnanger aroma hops.

I used calypso in an American rye today. The smell was similar to summit in my opinion. Some citrus, slight fruitiness, some what dank, and possibly oniony. I just pitched the yeast and I will follow up when it is finished. It was all late hop additions. 1oz each at 15, 5, 1.
