Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
SOME CAT FROM JAPAN suggested we do an IPA that is J-U-I-C-Y. So we packed up a pack horse and made it happen! Soft doughy and slightly tangy malt lies under bright citrus, round tropical fruit and mild pine resin hop aromatics that underscore the waves of flavors to come.

Dated 5/1/18 on the bottom of the can, 2.5 weeks old.

Pours a extremely hazy bright orange juice in the glass with two fingers of puffy white head. Nose is an aromatic blend of citrus and soft tropical fruits. It starts off with papaya, over-ripened mango, passion fruit, cara cara, pineapple and ends with a bit of sage + pizza dough. Taste is a burst of the soft tropicals from the nose and adds in a bit of pineapple, pine needle and ruby grapefruit rind. Mouthfeel is a soft medium, extremely low bitterness/tartness, focusing on the sweet notes. If you're looking for a "juicy" fruit forward IPA, this is your jam. Malt, alcohol and other notes of the hops are hidden. It's full on juice.

Pounder can into a snifter appears hazy orange juice with a white cap.

Aroma is tropical with fruity zest, pine and herbs.

Tastes fruity like pineapple, orange, and grapefruit with a lingering resinous bitterness.

Medium in body, modest carbonation. Very fresh and enjoyable.

Canned on 5/1/18

Look: a beautiful, glossy golden-orange with a slight haze; the head is soft, dense and white with a good bit of lacing

Smell: strong with dank, earthy pine and grapefruit zest upfront, followed by a quick amalgamation of light, practically indiscernible tropical notes

Taste: consistently pine-forward, with supporting notes of mango and peach are introduced; balanced throughout and leaving the slightest trail of hoppy bitterness through the finish

Feel: medium-bodied with light carbonation; resembles downing a fresh glass of pulpy juice, and goes down like one, too

Overall: a great-looking beer riding out its comprehensively simple yet well-done characteristics to a high level of sessionability; this is extremely drinkable with a balanced profile I'd love to see get Singlecut's double dry-hop treatment, as well as a great example of an entry-level 'top-tier' IPA.

T - The taste is mango, tangerine, pineapple, candied orange, sweet malts and piney hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft finish.

On tap. Poured hazy. Pretty juicy! Flavor akin to orange juice in many ways. A bit tangy. Plenty of pop in the flavor department. I enjoyed the flavor more than the aroma. This was the best part of a flight.

16oz. can in a nonic pint glass. The stamp on the bottom of the can reads "ACTUAL SIZE 3/6/16". Actrual date of consuming is 3/25/18.

Another hazy bleached orange colored brew. This one sports a 1-plus F billowy white cap that retains well and leaves lots of ring and spray lacing.

"Soft doughy" malt is right. There's mixed berry and tropical fruit aroma.

Equal parts grapefruit and candied tropical fruit. Light malts. Caramel, lemon, orange.


Medium body, slightly sweet. The 99 ibu work hard against the alcohol and sweets for a clean bitter finish.

The last sips were far better than the first, which were quite good on their own! I want this beer on tap.

Looks cloudy, hazy and like a morning Mimosa. Aroma is strong, hoppy and fruity with a marvelous head. Taste is hoppy, sweet and citrus. Excellent mouthfeel. I could "chug" this beer but that's not enjoying or respecting beer. 6.6% ABV and 99 IBUs. This is an awesome beer and might make for a session beer. Poured into a tumbler from a 16 ounce can "Actual Size" 3/6/18

Cloudly dried apricot body with a one and a half finger head that leaves some spotty, sticky lace.
Pineapple and citrus rind in the aroma. Hints of herbs and spice.
Grapefruit dominates the flavor. Layered nicely with some sweet mango, a slight funkiness, and nice bite from pine and spice towards the end. Barely backed up by a delicate doughyness.
Light in body, medium in mouth feel. Medium carbonation.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color—too cloudy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, consistently leaving a layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of orange citrus, mango, and pineapples are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has some additional hints of grapefruit towards the finish with a very slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA seems to be as "juicy" as they get as it's packed with tons of aromas and flavors from the hops without having hardly any bitterness.

Serving type: can

Looks cloudy unfiltered hay color. Smells super fruity like mango,pineapple,guava,slight molasses?. Tastes like it smells ,a super fruity hop bomb, albeit a delicious one. Feels well balanced,crisp,refreshing. This is an outstanding IPA,(and very fresh). I don't believe this beer warrants 20$ for a four pack of 16 oz cans. Softly spoken dreams was 22$ a six and is world class. This is above average but priced too high.
