I got a can of this from a beer store across the street from Standard Tap in Philadelphia. It poured a hazy golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with slightly sweet citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

What to say...other than WOW!! Thanks Singlecut for getting me all hopped up and have me to adjust my monthly beer budget. Hahahaha
This is a superb hoppy IPA that pours a nice cloudy piece of heaven with the flavor to back it up.
It has a mild citrus/pine with peach/mango aroma with a nice flavor of all... which slightly masks the hops, but not to the extent that it doesn't come thru, because it does with a heavenly body of brilliance. (yes Godly).
As for mouth feel...your mouth will melt... it is smooth with a slight poke from the devil, but the supreme being prevails with his fist clinched in hops!
For that true IPA drinker...please enjoy and try this one!!!! it's a "Stairway to Heaven"

Simply, the best IPA I ever had. But, be prepared for an incredible hoppy beer.

Shared a pint can, stamped 09/06/18 on the handsome label, with an IPA snob buddy. Poured gently into Spiegelau IPA glasses. Excellent head with superior retention and lacing. Color SRM 9, fairly turbid but not opaque. Smells just shy of perfect: gloriously hopped. Taste a fine hop bomb cloaking the 8.6% ABV magically. Such a tasty brew, I feel almost sacrilegious trying to analyze it. My beer snob buddy agrees Singlecut beersmiths know what to do with IPA. Magic spells indeed!

Turbid, slushy orange, little head. Aroma is a little whispy - a little vague citra / tropical note, slight earthiness but nothing really asserts itself. Taste is in the same vein - melon rind, soft pine bitterness, but none of the flavors really coalesce. Washed-out. Singlecut makes some great beers and this one has a great rep but I was left a little unthrilled

Can to snifter.


Look: hazy yellow, with a hint of orange. Small white head.

Aroma: mango, melon, maybe some peach.
TASTE: gave, mango, pineapple.
Lots of tropical fruit in the taste.

Feel: medium body , good carbonation (despite the small head) and easy drinking.

Very good IPA.
