On tap at the brewery the first day they announced it was back on tap.

A: Keep yellow hue, perfectly clear and quite possibly the most gorgeous color I've seen in an IPA. Nice fluffy white head with excellent lacing

S: I could smell this beer across the table - Intense tropical citrus aroma that's about as strong as I've encountered, amazing

T: I can't get over the smoothness of this beer, while still giving an intense whallop of tropical citrus hops. Very bright notes of pineapple, orange and grapefruit all with a smooth, VERY subtle malt sweetness. Totally unique and winning

M: Just about ideal, just enough malt but not sweet or cloying. Totally there to prop up the hops. Thanks SingleCut!

O: Could be my favorite SingleCut beer to date, very close to outstanding

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.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a a dark gold, a little bit of amber, with a quarter inch head, and a good amount of sticky lacing.

Smells very piney and floral, with a distinct grapefruit backbone.

The taste is similar. This has a very spicy, grassy hop flavor, with a some grapefruity juiciness. There's not much in terms of malt flavor here, it's maybe slightly biscuity if I really try hard to pick it out.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp, and quite smooth and drinkable mouthfeel. There's a moderate level of carbonation, nothing too prickly.

I'm always happy when kegs of these guys come up to Rochester. This was very tasty.
