On draft at Draught 55, NYC.
Poured a hazy brass hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured piney and tropical hop notes.
The taste offered resinous piney hops, with a secondary tropical note. There was a clean grainy malt in support.
The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.
Overall a tasty and very quaffable IPA.

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.

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.

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with some hints of pine resin.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is quite citrusy—flavors of grapefruit seem to stand out in particular. Slight hints of pine resin are noticeable towards the finish. The beer has a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and quite crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer packs the hop aromas and flavors that you would expect from an Imperial IPA but is rather easy to drink given its lower alcohol content.

On tap at Pony Bar Hell's Kitchen.
I am surprised at how much flavor and hops are packed into this low ABV beer. If you're a hop head but want to avoid the boozyness of most good IPA's, I highly recommend.
Hop tastes of pine, citrus and some orange. Good amount of carbonation.
Kind of reminds me of Sierra Nevada pale ale but obviously fresher being a local brew.
Extremely sessionable below 6%.
Singlecut has been impressive so far! If you're in the NYC area, try them. Only tap thus far....
