Saw the deconstructed out of the corner of my eye the other night at the beer store. P/u a 12er. Have tasted all the single hopped iterations. Only noticed the enjoy by date today. By Sept. Oops. The hop character was a bit muted on all but the Hallertau Mittlefrueh version, the tastiest by far, of the group(at this age). Need to try the offering fresh for sure. In order of preference: Hallertau Mittlefrueh, Simcoe, EKG, Zeus, Ahtanum. Will get to the "constructed" brew tomorrow.
This tasting, plus my love for one of the great all time best single hop beers, THA, has got the wheels turning for a run of single hop AIPA brews. Finally kegging an all Galaxy hopped AIPA this weekend. Tasted very promising before dry hop.
