On tap at Very Nice. Pours a hazy orange/copper with diminishing tan head, some lacing. Aroma is bitter, fruity and floral hops, hints of pine. Taste is nice and hoppy up front, then fades to a gentle sweetness provided by the honey. Moderate carbonation and medium body with a slightly oily finish. An interesting IPA

You sure this is a "Single" IPA? Absolutely gorgeous appearance: amber-gold hue beneath thick, frothy, white head. Sticky lace, stubborn retention across the board.

Malty, bready aroma is enjoyable but too subtle. Gimme the blast of fruity hops I crave!

Fortunately, the taste delivers. Fresh hops spring to life and push back against a surprisingly prominent malt backbone. What? Strongly malty? In a *Single* IPA?! Yeah, man -- this is a blueprint for how the style should be brewed. Pleasant (read: mild) traces of hop resin remain after swallowing. Deserves a 4.25, rounding up.

Thick, creamy body is arguably the best I've ever had from a Single IPA. I'm rating to the style, but seriously: this brew must be mis-categorized. Regardless, this is quite tasty and deserving of praise. I'm ready for another bottle.
