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

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.
