SingleCut is local brewery in New York who is making amazing beers of all varieties. This beer is amazing, hands down on the DIPA scale. (Also try Bon Bon TNT, another fantastic DIPA)

A- golden in color, this beer has a very light orange to yellowish hue. Looks great in a glass

S- man this beer smells good! Great citrus and pine, it all comes out in the bouquet.

T- great taste of citrus, pine, resin, but oh so smooth and just the right amount of hoppy bitter.

F- crisp in the mouth, it's sort of on the lighter side of a medium body.


Overall you could not ask for more in an DIPA..give it a whirl! (610 characters)

OK, so I have had quite a few top the top IPAs and IIPAs out there, but I am not an expert, but I consider this to be to me the greatest beer I have ever had. Better than Heady Topper, all the Tree House brews, etc. I haven't had any Pliny yet, but I will tell you that this ever is severely under-rated. To me this beer is perfect. I actually feel euphoria when drinking it. I wouldn't even know how to improve on this beer. Only thing bad is it is hard to get consistently in the Albany, NY area. (501 characters)

Pours into an imperial pint glass a clear lighter golden with a sticky half finger bone white head atop.Dank herbal hops hit me up front in the nose then some tropical fruits,and then to gild the lilly some pine resin to boot,a big hop combo here.Very smooth in the mouth and a silky feel wich you wont find alot of in the style.Sweet onion,tropical fruits,grapefruit rind,pine resi,it's all here on the palate,I mean what else needs to be sai.There is a mild sweet biscuit base that comes thru even amongst all the hop complexity.This is a damn fine DIPA where the maly sweetness doesn't get in the way.Awesome!. (613 characters)

Yes, this is a fantastic dipa !!! Huge aromas of mango, grapefruit and peaches. Taste is similar with peaches dominating and a touch of honey on the end. If I didn't know better I would think this is a peaches forward dipa . . . and I love peaches. Seek this out or pick it up. Really tasty with a smooth, sticky and creamy mouth feel on rolled into this terrific beer. More please. (382 characters)

22 oz bottle poured into a Jow's Arcade tulip glass

A - Pours a crystal clear, nice lemon tangerine color. Bright white head, soapy bubbles. Looks great

S - Nose is awesome. Huge citrus, tropical fruits. Orange, tangerines, mango, pineapple. Fresh herbs, almost basil like. Dank, woody, grassiness underneath. Very juicy smelling.

T - Up front you get hit big juicy grapefruit, orange, tangerine, pineapple. Middle of the mouth there is an awesome bitter, dankness but finishes sweet. Clean, crisp, dry. This is fantastic. 138 IBUs? This is crazy balanced for that high.

O - My second SingleCut beer, and I'm very impressed. Highly recommended. (661 characters)

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. (1,404 characters)
