Okay, so I'm drinking my first few homebrews and I'm starting to think about how to tweak my recipes, and I think the hardest thing for me at this point is to figure out what each hop variety brings to a beer. I know about Bell's Two Hearted and Founder's Centennial, but are there any other single hopped commercial beers? I plan on doing my own at some point, but I'd like to wait until I go AG and just do SMaSH beers. I'd be most interested in anything all-cascade. Also, if it is available in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, or Illinois I can get it in the next couple of weeks, so that would be preferred.

Thanks in advance.

Shakespeare Stout is all cascade.
Yellow Snow IPA is all Amarillo.

Mikeller has done several single hop beers with the same wort.

Happy hops from Russian River, they use a different hop all the time.

Quote:
Happy Hops
Hopped-Up Pale Ale, 5.56% ABV
Not really a Blonde Ale, not a Pale Ale, not an IPA. Happy Hops is a light colored refreshing ale with a pronouced hop character.

You may also see a special version of this beer once a year called Happy Hops Harvest, which is brewed with fresh "wet" hops grown locally.
Available year round

Yes. That was one of the two that I knew. I forgot to mention what hops it was. Thanks all for the other responses so far. Unfortunately, I don't think I can get Deschutes or Russian River. I'll keep my eyes open for the Rogue options though.
