My first beer after taking a 9 month lay off from the beer scene. Palate is reset to say the least.

16 oz can dated 5/14/18. Poured into a stemless wine glass.

Cloudy orange with a half finger head. The hops are wafting out off the glass. Pungent grapefruit, orange, melon rind and pine fill the nose.

Big burst of hops. Strong but pleasant. Building bitterness follows a slightly sweet malt backbone. Swallow, crave more, drink, then repeat. I love the sour, bitter, dry finish. Delish. Zero alcohol detected with no off flavors. Even my burps taste good.

Mouthfeel is very soft and creamy. Quite dangerous.

I have seen the reviews and the hype is well deserved. Excellent craftsmanship and a pleasure to drink. Highly recommended.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazy golden orange pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Falls fast with solid lacing.

S: Grapefruit and citrus juice. Dank and tropical hops.

T/F: Light grains/malts. Super juicy tropical hop bomb. Loads of grapefruit/citrus. Melon, papaya, and guava. Modest bitterness.... very well balanced. Creamy/smooth carbonation. Medium to light bodied. The finish is sticky and tropical.

O: Just an outstanding NEIPA. Singlecut does these crazy good and this is no exception. Loved it.

A: The beer is very hazy orange yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a lacy patch of bubbles that covered most of the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of grapefruit and papaya are present in the nose along with notes of pine and hints of pineapples.
T: The taste is a near mirror image to the smell and is packed with a mélange of flavors from the hops with additional hints of underlying caramel malts. There is a moderate to strong amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Imperial IPA is a definite hop bomb. It's quite drinkable considering its strength and it does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste.

Pours with a great 1 inch head. Smell is very citrusy but flowery at the same time. Could smell it from 6 feet away. Taste is a hop bomb. Feel is very light for a 8+ ABV. You’d think it was a session!

This brewer is new to me and came highly recommended by the person selling it to me (no wonder). Nice one, though.

It pours partly cloudy with very little fizz. The aroma is initially sublime but gives way to a slight bit of funky.

The taste is clean, bitter and hoppy, but not over the top. It's the new American balance. Over the top is not what it used to be. The after taste is clean as well.

Highly recommended.
