Served in a Singlecut snifter at the brewery.

Golden clear glow in color. Often I feel as though some DIPAs are too dark on color based on the balancing malt bill, but in this case the light color surprised me but was very nice. Thin head retention with slight lacing throughout consumption.

Aroma was eye opening. A tidal wave of hops comes out of the snifter; I believe with Citra hops being the dominant usage.

Thick pine mixed with light citrus explode on the taste buds. While this is certainly bitter, I've had far "worse" and consider this a very balanced taste profile. There is certainly a thick current of malt that latches to the sides of the tongue, but the hops help out by washing over the center.

I can say this comes across as slightly choppy, but not in the stereotypical sense. I think it has to do with the 86ibu (or at least this batch) and the 8.3 percent. While you can't really get the alcohol on the taste, be wary that it's there. It mellows out and coats the tongue in an after taste that will like be hard to get rid of. In short, don't drink this as your first beer here.

Overall, I hope they bottle/can this. While it won't likely match Heady, Resin, Furious, or others, I don't think any of those would object to the quality of this beer. Very drinkable, enjoyable, and a total hop bomb. I fully endorse this one and I hope it carries Singlecut into national attention.

Another tremendous IPA from Singlecut, drank from fresh keg a buddy picked up today. The citrus hop smell was just overwhelming as soon as I popped the top off the growler, absolutely delicious tasting beer. Extremely hoppy but plenty of malt support. Singlecut people. Singlecut.

A--Golden yellow, Slight head that hangs in there throughout in the glass
S--Wow. Citrus, pine, tropical fruits and floral. Absolutely fantastic smells
T--Citrus, hop forward for sure. Resinous, and bitter. Taste follows the nose with lots of tropical fruit deliciousness
M--Light and a bit creamy, Light carb with medium bitterness
O--This is such a solid IIPA it kinda blew me away. For fun I decided to do a blind test with my wife (she is also a fan of IPA/DIPA) with Maine Lunch. She picked Billy as the better smelling, better taste. Drinkability was higher for Lunch, but she preferred Billy overall. Great beer!
