Bottle shared by Curran last night.

Pours a golden, slightly dark orange, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells quite pungent, with some peach, passionfruit, pine, and grass.

Singlecut really seems to know what they're doing with IPAs. This one's made with PNW and Southern Hemisphere hops, and it's got that earthy fruitiness that I really love from New Zealand hops. There's some grassiness, a bit of pine, and a big hit of pungent grapefruit, orange, pineapple, peach, and passionfruit. Awesome.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp and juicy mouthfeel. It feels lighter than a Double IPA would feel like. The ABV is hidden pretty well.

Though this isn't quite world class, it's still a most excellent IPA and definitely one of the better ones made in NY.

A beautiful golden color as it poured into my snifter. Generously rough pour brings out a frothy head that settles to a lacy head for the duration of the drink. I got whiffs of some pine, but mostly citrus. The taste? Oh yeah, citrusy goodness that I love in a double IPA. I found it to have a creamy mouthfeel with solid carbonation; not too much, not too little. Overall, I would love to have this IIPA again. It just didn't seem like 138 IBU's to me.

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!
