L: Hazy, almost opaque golden orange with a creamy white head. Excellent retention with sheets of lacing.

S: Overripe peach, mango, and papaya, orange marmalade, a bit of biscuity malt, a touch of strawberry, and then lots of earthy, almost rubbery dankness.

T: Upfront, sweet orange marmalade. More like a jam of cooked oranges, apricots, peaches, and mangoes. Sweet, jammy, and cooked citrus and tropical fruits. There's some orange peel bitterness. A biscuity, almost brown sugary malt backbone. Then there's a big, earthy, almost rubbery/chemical dankness underlying it and pervading the jammy sweetness, lingering into the finish.

F: Big, thick, and fairly creamy. Moderate carbonation pushes it along well. Seems quite sweet upfront, but dries off nicely, along with that strong rubbery dankness.

O: A really solid DIPA, very Singlecut-esque. Not the best IPA I've had from them, but still very good.

Medium gold and hazy body under a couple of fingers of off-white foam... plenty of lacing down the glass... Aromas of peach, apricot, nectarine, and the like with a little hint of herbal spice... the flavors bring more fruitiness, with a brighter citrus element, and again something of a rye-like spice... Moderate sweetness, mild bitterness, medium-bodied and smooth... I think, one of my favorite from SingleCut recently... 5/10/17 canning...

Poured from 16 oz can into tulip. This IIPA pours a nice orange/amber and its mostly transparent from what I can see., with a medium-sized, soft head. A fair amount of lacing is present. Smell is a bit of apricot, malt, and hop bitterness. I do not get much of the peach that's mentioned. The taste is interesting. I get some sweet hop notes up front, followed by a hop bite (definitely the PNW hops coming into play there), then a malty, warming finish. As time goes on and the beer warms up a bit, much more of the booze is present. The feel of this beer was a tiny bit harsher than I anticipated, but it can be with this style. Overall, it's a decent representation of the IIPA w/Pacific Northwest hops style, but I'm not sure I'd get again, especially with the price. Very expensive compared to other 16 oz IIPAs.
