Happy New Cut a Single in Minneapolis, MN Beer Sunday (Week 668)!

As usual, I have a planned theme for today. Here in PA, we get distro from seemingly everywhere & it is tough to keep up with all of the newest releases. It is even more spectacular that they are coming to us in CANs for the furtherance of The CANQuest (tm). Let the fun CANtinue! 

From the CAN: "Please recycle * Keep America beautiful"; "Rulpsen says: 'Come visit the brewery!'"; "100% Brewed and CANned on premises by SingleCut Beersmiths"; "SingleCut Beersmiths is proud to maintain the Ameri[CAN] tradition of beer locally made from craft by zealots/lunatics who believe hard work, truth, pride and passion should always come before profit."; "Mastery knows no shortcut"; "Drink ASAP in a clean, wide mouthed glass * Store cold and upright * Unfiltered, pour carefully".

Once more, the Crack! CAN only be followed by a gentle Glug. I CANnot bring myself to go against the dictums of the brewers/brewery. This time, it seemed to work out in my favor as it was pouring with a haziness, but nothing like the sludge of Charlie's Good Tonight. I let it in until about half of the CAN was decanted before I stopped. Color was a faintly-hazy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). An in-glass swirl raise two-plus fingers of foamy, rocky, bone-white head that left behind nice lacing in its wake. Nose smelled like sweet orange zest & caramel! Brach's CANdies used to make caramels with a crème center, including orange. My late-maternal grandmother always had them in her sweet jar when we came over. I miss those days. My hophead mouth began to water in response. I really liked the slick mouthfeel of this beer! It was medium-to-full, but kind of oily on the tongue, coating my mouth with hop oil. The taste was sweet oranges & tangerines, all day, yo! I was lucky enough to be able to take HomeEc in high school & we learned early on that virtually every part of a citrus fruit could be used for something. Zest was derived by running the fruit along a grater while a potato peeler could create long strips of rind for either decoration, drying out for potpourri or even garnishing a dish. Either way, the classroom/labs would smell great for days. This beer had a citrusy zestiness that really evoked those moments. The label read: "99 IBU's", but it did not strike me as all that bitter. Citrusy, yes, but outright bitter? No. And then the caramel malt began to become more assertive, making it just that much more delicious. It was not aggressively malted, but it intermingled with the hops like spooning. Finish was semi-dry to dry and I still could not believe the label in terms of its IBUs. I could drink this all the time. Gilly Gilly!

3.9/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Translucent gold with a thin white head. No activity.

Smell: Juicy and sticky citrus hops. Grapefruit, peach, and melon. No malt.

Taste: Juicy hops with notes of grapefruit and grassy hops. Mild cracker malt. Mild alcohol.

Feel: Medium to light body. Moderate bitterness. Light alcohol. Sharp carbonation.

Overall: A good if average IPA. The Grassy note is just a hair too dominate. Solid but nothing to write home about in the crowded IPA catergory.

i am loving these guys right now, this is another winner of a hoppy beer, and brilliantly drinkable at this abv, despite the hop density and intensity of a stronger beer, and a nice sturdy feel to support too. these guys have a specific looking haze to their beers it seems like now after having had a bunch of them all in a row here, no visible sediment, no milky thickness, just a light frosted look to them, still pale and bright, and all so creamy headed, this is gorgeous. aroma here is a mix of fruity and spicy hops, really fresh and earthy, with cantaloupe, spruce, and tangerine in the mix, brightly aromatic but just as flavorful as it smells. the fruit starts juicy, citrus and melon for sure, but moves to a more intense, concentrated, weedy sort of dankness, spicy and vegetal and loaded with oils, more west coast than some of the others, at least in flavor and feel. smooth going down, a bit maltier here, but dry still, just a light hoppy fruity sweetness here in the end with the bitterness. fresh as can be. its cool these guys can have so many beers in the same category but have them all be different. this latest round of beers sent out by my brother has been supremely enjoyable. this would be an everyday fridge beer for me if that were an option...

Told myself I wouldn't pay $22 for a 4 pk...However, living in NJ, in order to get anything from SingleCut would at least cost my $14 to cross the river, so I figure you add that to what I would pay for this at the source, it made sense. Now to the beer. Deep and hazy orange, not a juice bomb, some nice carbonation bubbles on the glass, head was about 2 fingers but it faded quickly and left very spotty lacing and ring. Very nice nose, citrus and floral, sweet and tart. Very hop forward flavor but there is a nice balance of citrus and tropical fruits and a little dank finish. Can't detect the alcohol. Nice full mouthfeel, very soft and smooth finish. A little on the pricey side but this is definitely a top notch beer.
