Er-mah-gahd. Can't believe this is SingleCut. Massive citrus, dank, tropical floral bomb of a beer. This is amazing!!

I am really enjoying this IPA, it's easy drinking for a fairly high alcohol ale. Nice flavor and mouthfeel. This is the second beer that I've enjoyed from this brewer. (White Lagrr was the other) This is a really we'll put together beer that is leaving a nice lacing of foam all the way down the glass.

Super mature, grown-up offering for a start-up local brewery.

I really like this beer. Had it in the Single Cut taproom and they serve it in a tulip glass (not a full pint...boo!). I also had a few of these at Crescent & Vine in Astoria. The dude used a knife to chop off the head which was pretty regal. Enjoyed that.

And the beer: really delicious. Not filtered beyond recognition, so there's a haze to it. A pleasant haze. And it looks great in their tulip glass.

Smelled fruity, piney, dank & sweet all at once. I'm certain that Single Cut has used the Alchemist HT and/or other well-respected IIPAs for inspiration. They're not there yet, but this is a really valiant effort.

Tasted citrusy, piney, dank, hoppy. There is a pleasant funkiness that is hard to describe.

This is a great IIPA. ABV (8+%) might limit your consumption a little bit if you're a responsible person, but you can certainly have a couple of these.

Growler picked up from the brewery.

Killer combination of pine, citrus, dank, all in a fruity package. RIght up there with the best National IIPAs.

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!

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!

This beer is great. It has a ruby red color.

The aroma is of sweet citrus, juicy fruit, and a bit of pineyness.

The flavor is the same. It quite juicy with bitterness throughout. I would love to try this beer next to Hop Stoopid because I maybe could not tell the difference.

The color and the aroma remind of it. The flavor is slightly different with less astringent bitterness. However, it's a sweet lovely Double IPA. I'm glad that a NY brewery can make a Double IPA this good.
