Jenny Said Double Dry-Hopped IIPAJenny Said Double Dry-Hopped IIPA
Notes: There's good reason IPAs are the favorite child of us Beersmiths; so many new hop varieties are becoming available annually and we love digging through these options hunting for great original lupulin expression. Jenny Said IIPA is brewed exclusively with a variety of these newfangled flowers for a unique spin on the tropical stone fruit/bright citrus/dank resin profile that is our trademark.

3.61/5  rDev -16.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Look: nails the typical NE IPA look. Hazy orange juice appearance. Head was about an inch high, small compact bubbles
Smell: some orange, grapefruit, peach, tangerine peeks through. Also a strong cracker, cereal hints on the tail end of the sniff which I wasn't necessarily a fan of
Taste: Fruit forward. Juicy in the beginning transitions to a grassier, greener finish. End is combination of pine, bite, pith.

Overall beer drinks okay if you're looking for NE IPA, but given the price point (around $6/can at a local distributor) doesn't really offer anything new or different that you can't get from other beers in this style.

Pours a nice kind of hazy yellow with some peach coloring thrown in to give it a hue. Looks good as most hazy IPA's do, nice white head that laces well.

Aroma is loads of tropical fruits your normal NE profile tropical pineapple, passion fruit mango and stone fruit. Sadly I don't smell the dankness they talk about no weed aromas pig pine notes sticky resin smelling goodness? Not going to down rate it for that even though I was expecting kind of a mingling of styles, hopefully the dankness will turn up in the taste.

Taste is like the nose mainly big fruity notes tropical fruits about some lingering hoppy fruity bitterness maybe some light pine needle dusting nut dankness hell no. People on the east coast have had dank west coast IPA's right tastes like your chewing on a kind bud and pine cone at the same time? This beer isn't dank sorry. Again rating it as a good NE style its pretty solid with a little better hop bitterness then some , but dank nah.

Mouthfeel is nice big medium good fell as most have in this style . Carbonation is middle of road, so good.

Overall, eh not going to lie reading it was dank that is there thing is kind of BS. But if you want a solid NEIPA try this one out seems about par for the course, nothing to knock it for except false advertising.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Can: 5/14/19
Opened on 5/26/19

Looks like a pineapple and tropical fruit drink. A yellow and orange coloration. High foam cap, bubbly, not thick or creamy, more sparse and airy look.

"Stone fruit, bright citrus, dank resin" profile...is spot-on description for both the dominant aroma and flavors from the hop.
I also smell sweet, but boozy pineapple, mango and peppery oranges. High-toned and golden earthy grains are evident in the malty aroma and possible grains adjuncts within.

A rather boozy and peppery bite hits you first in the overall mouth feel and taste. Sharp citrus with edgy and tangy tones from this mysterious and complex hop strain is impressive. Light to medium bodied, snappy, then smooth with an abundance of tropical fruit tones with some rather biting, but bright grains and malt flavor's that fly under the radar but are actually a major player.

Overall, the depth of aromatics and flavor is high grade with a slightly unique edge from this hop. We'll done, and fun.

can to tulip...nice head...not much aroma at all even as it warms but looks and tastes terrific . Very crushable for a DIPA but not spectacular at nearly $20 for the 4 pk, Paired nicely with some fish and rice post workout.

Nice hazy orange look with a thin offwhite head. Light fruity scent with slight wizzy mix. Similar flavor, decent but not memorable. Less carbonation and a thinner feel.

I'm not nearly as poetic as others when describing beers - I'm just a simple blue collar guy that loves good New England IPA's.

Having said that, I did not like "Jenny Said" - for one reason only - Singlecut failed to hide the taste of the alcohol. I could not enjoy any flavors that might have been there because with every sip the alcohol was right there at the forefront of each sip...and that ruins it for me.

16 oz can with no freshness date. I am assuming i got a bad can. Looked ok, smelled weak, tasted average, felt thin, had little to no carbonation and just wasn't a good experience. I have had Singlecut beers and this didn't make any sense. If I decide to buy another $5.00 can and it is a different experience, I will update my review.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Can to tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking copper/orange color with a small white foamy head sliding off at an adequate pace. Slight lace, kinda sticky.
The aroma had a stellar mix of peach and mango flowing into a sly sweet sensibility then subtle pine shaping the back end.
The flavor initially stayed towards the sweet fruity peachy/mango side then seemed to warm up towards a light bitter yet juicy underneath of fresh pine needles, apricot and pineapple. Mild aftertaste of peachy/mango/pineapple sort of blend.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fine sessionable to sipping sort of quality to it. Carbonation felt nice and low as expected. ABV felt on par. Nice crushed sweet pineapple sort of finish with a tickle of stickiness but not cloying.
Overall, pretty nicely done DIPA, perhaps giving another shot again depending upon what else was offered.

Paid $17.99 for a 4-pack. Like all the Singlecut I've had, a little expensive, but reliably good. Light copper color, nearly clear, with a 2-finger soft head and good lace. Aromas not strong, but very nice...dank and a little fruity. Flavor is also a little dank with fruity, creamy sweetness. Really good mouth feel...medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall, another pricey, but delicious IIPA from Singlecut.

Soft, slightly creamy and juicy with light carbo.
Midium-light body. Pineapple,peach, mango etc. notes combined.
Sweet after tastes and moderate bitterness last for the while.
Soft and smooth, not feel 7.7% alcohol note is great.
Good NE style IPA.

Foggy pale orange with a tall, thick uniform white foam.

Smell is dank lemon and orange, with no malt.

Bitter at first, flavors of sharp, sweet and tart lemon are met with an almost acidic hoppy yeastiness, as, again, no malt is detectable.

A crispness develops into an airy froth in an otherwise thin bodied ale that finishes semi-dry.

S: tangerine, mango, pineapple, juicy sweet oranges, green apple, sweet grains, and cracker

T: bitter grapefruit, apricot, mango, pine, some sweet malts and something a little grassy

M: medium mouth with some sticky sweetness. Mid-carbonation

O: a balanced DIPA. It has bitter, and sweet. Smooth and very drinkable for a DIPA

This was another Singlecut beer in my cue that took a while for me to get to, finally having it on this quiet spring night. Dated 3/10 of last year with "BOOMER LIVES!" above it, this held up well and was among Singlecut's best it fully warmed up in my goblet...

Good pour to this as the liquid looked like opaque orange juice. Tons of white, fluffy lacing topped this off as the lacing left behind covered a majority of the inside of my goblet. Heavy tropical fruit, weed, and hints of bitter chocolate filled the nose as valencia, resin, floral notes, and English hops rounded out the palate. Amazingly, this was quite soft in every sense of the word given how heavy some of the notes were as this went down easily, with very little sediment at the bottom of the liquid. Dank melon rind and a woodsy feel stuck around in the aftertaste as the complexity of this beer really emerged near the end, leaving me wanting more.

The amount of booze was spot-on as I warmed up a bit drinking this, but was still able to have more brews during my session. This stuff was so fabulous and proved why I haul these cans from their facility to the Subway in Astoria. Easily worth seeking out and one of their better (and more underrated) offerings!

Can dated 2/5/18 into pint glass. Pours an opaque straw color with a thin off-white head. Initial impression is cirtus rind (grapefruit, orange, mango, peach), with very little bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-thick and enhances the flavors nicely. Finish is citrus-y and smooth. Quite a good NEIPA.

L - very hazy, almost looks like nectar juice, good head with decent retention, solid lacing

S - straight up smells like a fresh cut mango. Love it.

T - smells like mango, but tastes like a pineapple/pear fruit cup, very well balanced, floral finish.

F - thick mouth feel that does not leave filmy texture. Tiny bubbles. Smooth and easy to drink.

Overall - loved it. Great beer to have while sitting on the couch while watching "How I Met Your Mother" extra points for the Vonnegut quote on the bottom. *Thumbs up*

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of cantaloupe melon and orange citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of mango, melon, orange, and peach. Little if any bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer hardly tastes like an Imperial IPA because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste. It is quite drinkable.

Serving type: can

Can poured into a pint glass. Date 2/6/18. Hazy yellow orange. Peppery medium carbonation. Mouthfeel and taste remind me of the first time I tried Two Hearted - perfectly balanced. The malt, the hops, and the alcoholexactly complement one another, only with 100x more flavor. Everything you want in a NE IPA. Easily my favorite offering from Singlecut.

Hazy with a very fruity and mildly vegetal aroma. Lots of overripe mango and orange pith on the palate. Low bitterness. Finishes a little sweet. Low carbonation. Hits all of the notes of a good modern NEIPA. I prefer the version of the style that has a little more bitterness and crisper finish, but that likely wasn’t the goal of the brewery with this one.

Tap

Pours cloudy orange golden, white film for a head.

Smells of bright citrus juice and grapefruit with some pine over a cereal and cracker malt.

Flavor is of citrus and tropical fruit over biscuit, cereal, and pine.

Medium to full body, fizzy carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

This beer is pretty awesome. It's just a really, really good NEIPA-style DIPA. Really excellent and I hope I can get more of it.

On tap at Whole Foods.

A - Pours an opaque medium golden yellow color with frothy lacing that's very sticky on the sides of the glass.

S - Nice assertive/thick citrus aroma with papaya, mango, tangerine, and muted pineapple aroma.

T - Nice spicy citrus rind, tangerine, light pineapple, mango. All citrus from start to finish with a nice piney bite on the back end, nice lingering peppery, spicy bittersweet finish.

M - Very thick and full bodied. Has that typical "cut it with a knife" frothy/dense body.

O - This is an outstanding IPA. Singlecut continues to impress. Seek this beer out!

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".

My last CAN from them (at least for today as new ones seem to arrive weekly) & it began with a Crack! & slow, gentle Glug since that is what the brewers/brewery recCANmended. As with Weird & Gilly, it was pouring clearer than with Charlie's Good Tonight, but I still ended up with a very hazy glass of Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) beer. It also created its own finger-and-a-half of foamy, rocky, bone-white head that slowly fell, leaing nice lacing in its wake. Nose was an onslaught of hoppiness, running the gamut from citrus to melon to pine to tropical to berries! OMFG. My sinuses sounded the alarm as so many esters and aromas hit them all at once and critical mass was being reached & breached. Mouthfeel was big, full, but not quite creamy. It lovingly embraced my tongue with its fullness like the aunt that CAN't wait to give you a hug during the holidays. The initial flavor(s) were melon - CANtaloupe, honeydew & mushmelon, but then I got some cool pine like a cool breeze, Cool Breeze. Finally, I got apricot & peach before I had to swallow or be overwhelmed by it all. The finish was dry, on the cusp of semi-dry, but I CAN only shake my head at their claim of "112 IBU's". Not in my book! YMMV.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. October 24th 2017, Break the 4th wall!

Solid opaque body and unfiltered but stays away from turbid soup looking appearances. A real nice glowing tangerine orange and layers of yellow pineapple to lemon colors. Creamy forming head, nice and fine at three fingers just the right amount onf control, with a small island top. Pill like lacing and some decent staying power, very nice looking IPA.

Real nice hop aroma. Controlled mix of sweetness and bitterness, with a big note of candy pineapple but also some bitter tropical like melon quality. Flirts with some herbal mint and thick green herb like flavors as well. Real impressive nose.

Great solid palate. Juicy tones with mint and thick rich tropical flavors. Mid palate hits with a soft candy but also good bitterness of hop, moving towards a slight candy orange of citrus, and leaves much of the tropical notes behind replacing with dry herbs of mint and almost a lemongrass like quality. Juicy texture, with a real excellent malt softness, flirts with caramel just a touch but stays very neutral and supportive of the hop experience, just giving the right amount of sugar.

Hard to find much fault with this, just a very above average and solid IPA.

Really enjoyed this one. Body and carbonation are on point. Hops are nicely balanced from fruit up front with slight bitterness on back. Aroma of tropical fruits and yeast is prominent though not overpowering.
