The appearance is like an opaque orange juice. What little fine head it starts with disappears quickly.

Smell is very citrus, sweet and acidic. Orange is there, but this might be the first brew I've run across that has more lime than anything. I'll call pineapple, too. The woodsy scent is like a mellow pine sap.

In the taste, the citrus throttles back to even with the woodsy flora. Sweetness is nicely integrated with the white wood flavor. Bitterness is only present for a flash. There's also far more dynamism in the flavor than the nose suggests. Tree flavors don't stop at wood, either, with indeterminate broad leaves in there. Sweetness and savoriness are matched very nicely.

Carbonation is pillowy. Medium weight. The sugar hangs around a bit too much, but the aftertaste is otherwise very pleasant. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Deliciously light and refreshing for DIPA. All the flavor with bright citrus accents. A very well crafted smooth mouthfeel but not heavy. Had after a hot summer day on the water @ Sodus Point NY. Stopped by Jack's and next door Marlins and actually wanted something lighter... but there was Single Cut on the beer menu... and that took care of that. This beer was a great summer brew...easy drinkability; refreshing but still all bases covered well for a big IPA. Nicely done!

i realize that i am just going to love everything these guys make. they are definitely becoming one of my favorites in the game, and these super dry hoppy ipa types are what i now know them to do better than anything else! this is another gorgeous, soft, hazy ipa that bursts with dry hopped goodness, drinks easy for its size, and tastes fresher and more alive to me than anything else out there. i wish they would tell us what hops they use, but there is frustratingly little information either on the can or online. my guess is that there is a mix of classic high alpha types and new perhaps yet to be named fruity types. so much more than citrus here, i get fresh cut melon, ripe peach, papaya, even underripe berry in the finish, but its also resinous, woodsy, and bitter at the same time, kind of the best of both worlds, but its so soft! its all really well integrated, almost to the point where i feel bad picking it apart and looking for things that taste familiar to me instead of accepting it as a new whole, which in retrospect, is really uncommon in beer for me, it always tastes like something else, always has a reference point, but this one doesnt really, and that is to its highest credit. i have loved that these singlecut dry hoppy beers still have some bitterness, it makes them more complete and enjoyable than the ones that just taste like fruit juice. fresh as heck too. big big thanks to my brother for sending this one out (along with a handful of other awesome singlecut stuff)! these guys are really doing it up right, and as much as they all fall into the hazy ipa category, they are all so distinct and delicious. stoked on this!

Pour is a mildly cloudy gold. Citrus forward with a well balanced hoppiness. Smell doesn’t give away the juice bomb that this beer is. Slight bitterness on the back end. Enjoyable, drinkable beer

Tall silver can.... 8-8-17 stamped on the bottom..."Double Dry Hopped"

Pours all cloudy, frothy cap lasting and lasting, then leaving ample stickage all up and down the glass.

Ripe fruity nose, soft and inviting, loaded with melon and mango....enticing

Yummy, fruity, tropical DIPA, more melon, more mango, ripe pineapple...simply delicious

Soft and sumptuous on the tongue, finely crafted NY take on the sought after NEIPA style...highly recommended....go get some

16oz. can into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

Looks very NE IPA-y. Nose is the same. Hints of clementine, pineapple, sweet citrus and a mellow grassy hop bitterness. Beer opens clementine, grapefruit, pineapple and grass. Some waxy hop oils in the middle with a bark, citrus and pineapple finish. There's definitely the full fruit character in this one but its nicely complemented by a balanced hop bitterness. Feel is light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and quenching in the mouth. Dry going down with a sticky aftertaste that coats the palate.

SingleCut is getting closer and closer to Trillium-level. Sometimes, as in this case, the beer needs a little less balanced to either emphasize the fruit or hop character more. As is though, very solid and well worth trying.

Comes in a hazy, almost opaque dark golden color. An aggressive pour yields a large, pillowy white head with moderate retention. A soapy head is left behind, leaving sheets of soapy lacing.

The aroma is fragrant, ripe mango, apricot, and tangerine with a touch of strawberry. Some honeydew melon as well.
Sweet, luscious, and inviting. There's also an undertone of earth and firm bready malt.

The palate kicks off with a ton of orange peel, tangerine flesh, mango, and apricot. The malt backbone offers glimpses of toasted white bread and a touch of clover honey, but there is no lingering sweetness. You do get a nice balance of earth and soft pine needle, providing just a touch of bitterness, but the main focus is gently luscious tangerine, mango, and apricot. The finishes dries out moderately, smoothly balanced, alcohol completely hidden. Crisp and clean, with no lingering bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium to medium-plus, well-rounded; not thick, chewy, or heavy, but feels full on the tongue. Medium-plus carbonation pushes it along swiftly, though, and the clean finish brings you quickly back for more.

Overall, this is a fantastic IPA from Singlecut, dare I say one of my new favorites at this point in time.
