    The best idea they had was Latitude 48 Deconstructed Pack.

    I've been told this will probably be pricier than their normal 12 packs, in the $20 range. If I remember correctly the deconstructed pack was about the same when it came out

    They should redo the Deconstructed pack.

    Look forward to trying this - enjoyed the dark depths at EBF and would love to try the others (Latitude 48 was ok when I last had it) without springing for 22 oz bottles.

    I'm not big on Belgian IPAs, but I still will probably pick this one up.

    I'll have to get this one. Had 3 of them and there all pretty good. Would like to try the other 2.

    I've had both the whitewater and Baltic and they were both pretty solid. Hope we get this pack in wv

    They should really do Deconstucted again. Loved the Simcoe.

    Picked one up today for ~$14 in Indy. Seemed like a steal, especially considering the bombers were 6-7 each.

    Because single hop IPAs using hops meant only for bittering are a good idea?

    I doubt they were only using the one hop for bittering only. When I tasted them they tasted like the hop was used throughout the boil. The cool thing was you could drink two or three different;y hopped beers and they would taste totally different even though the malt bill was the same. the only difference was the hops used.

    Another really good idea for a mix pack from SA. All of them were solid brews with some diversity in hopped styles. I was very pleased to pick it up for $15. Damn good deal if you ask me.

    The Tasman Red IPA contains hops from Tasmania, the Australian island state. The beer has the grapefruit and pine flavors typical of IPAs, but the hops also have a flavor of roastiness with a hint of toffee to balance the normal IPA flavors.

    Over the harsh bitterness in this beer how the hell can anyone detect any roastiness or toffee? So bitter it was borderline undrinkable.

    I picked up one for $15.99. So far I've only had the Tasman Red, which I did not like.

    I saw it for $17.99 last week. It was tempting but when I usually pay $12.99 for a SA mixed pack that price is kind of hard to swallow.

    Yeah I agree the Tasman Red was way too bitter an unforgiving. It was like everyone kept telling Sam that his IPA's were not hoppy enough so he made the Red. Such a bitter and unforgiving beer I have no idea how it gets such good reviews.

    Ow and I found the Belgium IPA "Grumpy Monk" as a single but I need to track down more Third Voyage since that was a pretty great DIPA

    And I also need a single of Dark Depths Baltic IPA. Maybe the House of 1,000 will get them in since they had the Longshot beers as singles...

    Look at it this way it's way easier than paying 7-8 dollars for a 16oz bottle of some of those offerings :p

    Wow. A lot of hate for Tasman red.

    I loved it when i had it.


    Ive actually enjoyed all of the beers in this pack. I normally dont care too much for SA stuff but this is good stuff

    I really enjoyed the White Water, thought the apricot played real well with the hops & spices.

    Will keep my eye out, I did see a pack somewhere but don't recall the price.

    I don't remember what all the hop varieties were, but if you think Simcoe or Columbus hops are meant only for bittering, you should get out more. ;)
