look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

On tap during a session tonight in NYC

appearance: Hazy, looks unfiltered. Great head and lacing.

smell: Strong notes of pine, sweet citrus (orange) tropical (mango/pineapple) and mild dankness. I smelled this beer before picking up the glass

taste: Smooth initial piney flavor melds into intense mango/pineapple/orange citrus with a mild dank finish. Malt is subdued with a faint biscuity smoothness.

mouthfeel: Ideal for an IPA - not too heavy, not too thin, and goes down easily.

overall: Learned about this brewery recently and have been really impressed. This is a great IPA

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.
