If this was released by trillium, people would be wetting their little panties over it.


This is truly delicious, very light for an IPA, drinks almost like a pale ale, but this is the north east were talking about. Exploding with floral nz and aussie hops. Decent bittering hops though. My father called it very "green".

1/2 growler fill from the brewery

nice looking clear amber brew, respectable looking head, film and lace left on the glass.

citric hop nose

more citrusy hop notes all over this one.

Quality IPA, worth a try if you see it at your local or if you make it to the brewery

Had a pint on tap at the brewery while consider how to fill my growlers. I'd describe this as a West Coast IPA as it has big citrus hops with a lighter body for the style and a biting finish. The hops character has a mix of grapefruit and citrus rind with piney undertones that lingers and lingers. The body is more drinkable, but the flavor is rich enough that it's a pleasant beer to sip and savor. Check it out.

Like I said, Single Cut is where it's at in NYC for quality IPAs. Very smooth, bitter yet balanced. This is delicious stuff.
