I have a single hop (actually 1 90 minute magnum addition) IPA with Galaxy that should be finishing up soon.
As you can see, I overshot my OG but ended up fermenting down pretty well to end up with 10.5. I wish I had done just a bit more hop additions..maybe dry hopped with Galaxy & Citra instead.
The aroma is pretty weak and it's a big malt bomb but very drinkable and a single glass gets me pretty tipsy and I'm a big guy. It's an intense beer.;
I'm doing a lot of single-hop beers so I can learn the aroma and taste of each hop and then I feel it will make be a better brewer...It comes down to how much I can get of each..if the LHBS has a pound of something interesting, I'll make an IPA out of it and see what comes out.
Hope that helped...but I'm not an expert just messing around so don't trust anything I say.
