This was the first beer from SingleCut that I bought here in Jersey, at Joe Canal's in Parsippany. Loved the label but thankfully, the liquid on the inside was just as enjoyable as this turned out to be on par with other offerings that I've had from them!

Not a bad pour to this as the liquid was a golden orange with plenty of head to top it off. Not a lot of lacing left behind but there was enough to coat part of the inside of my glass. Some herbal tea and light spice was on the nose with more of those to be found in the taste. Some citrus, lemon, light nectar sweetness, and cracked bread came through in the nose as this warmed up, but this turned out to be quite dry and not as dank or juicy as other beers that I've had from them. Not a lot of booze or carbonation here as the malt was quite basic and in the background...

Not a lot of booze here, which was good given the mellow nature of this beer. While not bad, there wasn't too much that was memorable about this and the white-grape like aftertaste was a reminder that this was a bit different. Dated 7/25 of last year with "IT IS WRITTEN" above it, the nose piercing on the label should have been an indicator of what was inside. Not my thing but worth scoping out once for the taste!

Really unique offering from SC. A heady mix of tropics and dank resin that somehow is different from their typical mix of stone fruit and dank. Great sweet weed aroma, beautiful lacing. Overall quite satisfying and a welcome original IPA.

Drank from a one pint can purchased at Pemberton Farms, Cambridge, MA
7/25/17
Served in a tulip

Great can design, as usual. These guys always get my attention with their interesting labels and their obscure music references. As for the beer, it poured a nearly cloudy yellow ochre and was capped by a small, frothy white film that quickly fell to a thin collar. Minimal streaky lacing stuck along the glass.

The nose was hoppy and fruity. Pleasant but slightly less fragrant than I had hoped. Honeydew melon was apparent. Fairly sweet. Citrus was also noticeable. Equal mix of orange and grapefruit flesh and some rind-like pithiness. A bit lemony too. As the beer sat, some mango was also detectable.

Flavorwise, the beer was citrusy and surprisingly bitter. Touch of pale malt and tropical fruit-like sweetness on the front end. Mango was noticeable. As the beer moved along the palate, the citrus notes intensified. Loads of orange peel. Some juicy orange flesh too. Lemony in the center. On the back end, white grapefruit and grapefruit rind-like notes took over. More grapefruit pith and resiny pine sap on the finish. The pithy, bitter resins lingered on the palate long after the swallow.

Super light, frothy, highly effervescent mouthfeel. The liquid contained an ultra fine yet fairly aggressive carbonation. Fluffy on the palate yet a bit excessive perhaps.

As a regular at both Trillium and Tree House, I can say assuredly that SingleCut makes some of the best New England-style IPAs on the planet. Use The NME DDH IPA, however, was one of their most disappointing releases. The aroma was more subtle than I anticipated and the flavor was exceedingly pithy and bitter. Unlike their other hoppy beers, this one is quite far from your typical NEIPA juice bomb.

16 oz. can dated 7/25/17

Pours cloudy hazy golden amber with a creamy white foam head. Smells like nutty toasty biscuity caramelized malt, papaya, berry, guava, pineapple, passionfruit, apricot, mango, grapes, orange citrus, grapefruit, with resinous dank earthy herbal floral grassy pine. Tastes like nutty toasty biscuity caramelized malts, papaya, berry, guava, pineapple, passionfruit, apricot, mango, grapes, orange citrus, grapefruit, with bitter resinous dank earthy herbal floral grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice double dry hopped IPA.
