Single Cut "Billy 18-Watt IPA"
On tap @ Dosa Royale, Brooklyn, NY

Notes: Clear amber, short white head. Very nice lacing. Bright aroma of citrus pith, pineapple. Resinous! Great! Flavor does not live up to the aroma. It's THIN in comparison with a limited maltiness. The hop flavor pales in comparison to the aroma, BUT overall it's refreshing and drinkable.

Possibly the first session IPA I've had that I drank all night and enjoyed to the end. Great pine/citrus (floral-orange-grapefruit) aroma with a undercurrent of dankness that seems to be the Singlecut hallmark. Flavor was similar with a mild malt sweetness (just right). Plenty of body for a session IPA. Definitely one of the standout breweries in the NYC scene.

Growler filled at Nathaniel Square Corner Store.

Pours a clear light amber, with a one inch head, and sheets of lacing down the glass.

Smells like pine resin, grapefruit, flowers, and other sweet fruity aromas.

This one has a pretty solid amount of grapefruit in the flavor, which is nice, along with some orange, a huge floral flavor, some pine resin, and a pleasant amount of bitterness that lingers for a decent while. There is not a whole lot of malt present, but the body seems to be heftier than a typical session IPA, so that must be where I'm seeing it. It definitely doesn't translate like most session IPAs- this isn't just simply hop water, it's a deliciously hoppy beer you can have a few of and feel fine.

This one has a medium body, but feel light while drinking it, keeping it very drinkable. There is a medium amount of carbonation, and a crisp, kicking mouthfeel.

I'm finally starting to find some session IPAs that float my boat. This one was great.
