Notes: 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.

From the one pint can with a stamped date of 03/24/2020. Sampled April 19, 2020.

A milky, cloudy looking pale yellow pour that is opaque but not as much as some NEIPA's. A delicate, lingering ivory head atop it.

Bright tropical and juicy aromas take over the sensations with a more lower profile cereal grain.

Soft, smooth medium or better body.

Sweet flavor at first until the tropical fruit characters kick in loud and clear to finish it off. Bitter but nicely done. I tire of NEIPA's but this one is one worth having again.

Cloudy orange juice looking with a white head that leaves mice lacing.

Orange, citrus and herbal hops on the nose and palate. Kinda weak though.

Medium-light mouthfeel. Somewhat watery.

Decent but not up to par with most Singlecut offferings.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a wide mouth pint glass

L: Hazy and golden. Moderate head. Good lacing.

S: Very citrusy, melon flavors, a bit of booze, some light dough

T: Very similar to the smell, starts off full bodied and full of juice, transitions to a bit of bitter bite that doesn't linger much. Very smooth and a creamy mouth feel. Slight alcohol tinge.

O: Another solid DDH from Singlecut. Not my favorite offering from them but I would gladly buy it again.

A well balanced juicy IPA that smells almost exactly like it tastes. It pours a light hazy yellow, with a lacy collar and an aroma that fills whatever room it’s opened in. At 6.6% ABV it has a bit of a kick to it, but maintains an easy sip, and goes down smooth.

Japanese/NE style juicy IPA.
A) hazy amber body floating skim head and scant lace.
S) Juicy, but less fruity, piney, grassy, orange candied rind.
T) Follow smell, with more malt cracker, more dank and grassy complexity, finishing with a twist of candied orange zest.
F) Mid body with moderate carbonation, tangy, clean finish.
O) Juicy, dank, rind vs flesh.

5 oz pour on tap. It doesn't look like a NEIPA, being mostly clear. As promised, it IS an incredibly juicy IPA but it is also well balanced with some doughy malt and some bitterness although I would not have guessed anywhere near as high as 76 IBUs. Despite the excessive juiciness it is not sweet or cloying at all. Overall, it's very tasty and easy to drink.

Decanted into an 16 oz (473 ml) custom taster pint; canned on 09/03/2019.
A: Pours an opaque, dark golden color (think tarnished brass), with a one finger, foamy, lemon chiffon head, half a rim of retention, but limited lacing.
S: Aromas of pink grapefruit, orange, honey, caramel, and pine.
T: Sweet to semisweet. Flavors are a melange of the nose. Light, minty bitterness excellent for the with the style.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: An enjoyable, delicious, very different AIPA.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on September 13, 2019. Juicy citrus, tropical fruit and pine resin notes. There's some bready malts in there too.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/3/2019. Pours opaquely hazy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.6%. Overall this is a fantastic NEIPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish. Nicely soft feel and not overly aggressive. Feels like Columbus, Simcoe, and Citra. Extremely juicy, vibrant, dank, and earthy hops; with a great wheat/oat/malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding style example as expected.

Hazy golden body with bubble islands and small lacing. Tons of citrus, namely lemon and orange, with mango, fruit pith and moderate hops on the finish. Taste is citrus forward with grapefruit pith coming in hot after the lemon and orange, some grass and decent hop bitters on the finish. Juicy up front and very clean and sharp in the end.

16oz. can served in a willibecker. Pours a hazy, burnished orange with a frothy, one inch, white head. Nose expresses bright citrus, herbal notes and a hint of biscuit malts in the back. Taste consistent with nose; however, herbal quality is more assertive and there's a kiss of cardboard towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an assertive carbonation and acidity. Overall, decent but not worth the price tag.

Canned 8/6/19; drank 8/14/19 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice bright white head; decent lace.

Grapefruit, peanut butter & table sugar notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Grapefruit, wheat & mild peanut butter flavors.

Not ideal for an IPA, "hazy" or otherwise...but it was drinkable.

F-Slightly less than medium.......moderate carbonation.......somewhat gummy

Beautiful hazy orange color with a sudsy bone white head, this IPA is packing a jackhammer wallop of fruity citrus aromas, and a pleasant surprise with some pine notes as well.

Juicy orange flavors lead the taste, but the pine flavors are well represented, and there’s a nice malt component as well. Everything I’ve had from Singlecut has been excellent, and this is no exception. They brew beer very, very well.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about fourteen dollars. Have had a few brews from these guys before. Seems to have been a significant price point drop? This was very good, would definitely get again.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Fairly bath foamy head, but large and a classic size just over three fingers on the pour. Decent staying power, on a fairly opaque bodied and solid looking off orange to lemon yellow body color.

Very nice hop forward aroma. Hints soft pine with a big citrus orange flavor. Real juiced up aromatics with whiffs of dark and earthy smelling herbs as well. Sort of a deep grass without the dank aroma.

Palate is surprisingly light in almost every way. Simple malt backbone leaves a fairly narrow hop flavored presence to display. Minimal juicy qualities with a faint hint of orange and more of a grassy character on the palate. Finishes a little chalky dry also.

A decent IPA but tends to be a bit on the lighter body but not too much on the flavor at least.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into my Tired Hands pint glass.

L: A medium hazy orange color with a big one finger white head. Beautifull glass lacing.

S: Loads of citrus, fruits and danky pine with some honey sweet.

T: The citrus and fruits are insane on this beer. Orange, grapefruit. pineapple, grape just jump out at you. The malt is honey sweetness that plays very well with the hops. The beauty of this beer is the second half with huge amounts of dank hops and piney bitterness to round out the dry long finish. Fine beer.

F: Smooth but prickly, nice carbonation and no alcohol. Extremely drinkable.

O: A top notch IPA that sways away from the NEIPA and sways towards the WCIPA style and does a great job doing it. Excellent beer.

This beer is surprisingly light to drink, and comes off a bit peppery tasting to me. I want to like it more, but it is actually kind of a weird IPA. Not my favorite but still a pretty good beer with a pretty good zen-like buzz

Canned on 5-10-19
L: Hazy, white clouds.. orange. Light head.. spotty lacing.
S: Oranges, pine and some orange tang in the deep recesses.
T: Citrus on the whole. Light pine. Juicy goodness.
F: Light to medium. A fair amount of bitterness, but not hot. Smooth late, and a bit of gummed bite.
O: Excellent all-around brew. I've had W&G many many times, and it's hard to find even a medium level fault. Lower ABV is also a plus.

Pale gold, fluffy cap that settles into a persistent ring. Aroma & palate feature a lot of ripe melon, grapefruit & mango with some mild grassy undernotes.

Canned 20 days ago.

Pours medium-hazy gold with a thin white head and lasting lacing.

The nose is dank hops with orange juice and watermelon in the background.

The taste is OJ, berry, and a medium dose of dank bitterness.

The mouthfeel opens silky then dries out a bit.

Overall, 4.25.

L - massive yellowish head atop a pale orange body.

S - orange, pineapple, strong herb

T - very dank citrus. Earthy and floral hops provide some balance. Pine, resin, dirt. Moderate bitterness. Low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium-full body with average carb.

O - too heavy on the dank for me.

Certainly a weird look from this brew, hazy apple cider with no head that I can see. Slightly dank and peach like on the nose but not powerful. Flavor is pretty darn good. Nice and fruity. Not much carbonation but it works with this beer. Medium/ thick feel.
