Notes: DIVE DEEP in to this lush and round DDH IIPA inspired by the beloved Is This The Real LIfe?. Drown in the aroma of peach nectar and cotton candy, drink deep with the palate of tangerine and peach juice, finished with a long soft finish and gentle dry bitterness. Just watch the show.

Pours a opaque yellow with a 2 finger head that leaves small traces of laces.

Smells of sweet peach, tangerines and doughy bread.

Taste mimics the nose. Finishes with slight bitterness. Zero booziness.

Mouthfeel is medium and smooth. Soft, light carbonation.

Another good one from the boys at Singlecut. Recommended.

I joined Beeradvocate specifically to weigh in on this spectacular DIPA. To me, this hazy love potion embodies everything I love and pray for when scouring the planet for different versions of hoppy goodness. I’ll leave it to others more talented than I to describe the specific flavor notes, but I get cotton candy, watermelon and bread balanced with the perfect amount of bitterness at the end. It’s sweet, yet all man in the trousers.. To drown in such a liquid would be a sweet departure, and yet all the more melancholy, for the experience of this beverage is truly one of life’s great joys!

16oz can into a pint glass. Stamp on bottom of can no help in determining freshness

Looks decent enough. Pale orange body, small white head shrinks to a ring and covering, but leaves great lacing.

Not much on the nose, a little non citrus fruit

Nice taste. Smooth, with a little warmth and bitterness towards the end. No specific fruit flavor that I could pick out.

Mouth close to full, finish warm and a little bitey.

Overall, a standard decent NE ipa. Not spectacular, but would get again.

Light peach color in a Spielgelau IPA glass with a 4F head.
Mild aroma at first, piney, with warming a stronger aroma of peach.
Excellent smooth MF. Smoother than most DIPAs.
Great taste. Peach, piney, with a very moderate finish.
One of my favs from Singlecut.

Can to tulip.
The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange/copper color trimmed by a small cap of a white foamy head sliding off at a decent pace. Filmy foam lined the top of my glass and carried some sticky glaze of lace.
The aroma had some candied pineapple, peachy/mango to honey sweetness meshing with some subtle pine notes. Subtle wax/crayon note slighter in the backbone.
The flavor started with some sweet pineapple/peach skin/mango blend. Luckily, waxy/crayon tones barely were noticed in this department. Some pine again. Mellow aftertaste of pineapple, mango and sticky pine.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair dry sipping quality about it. Appropriate low carbonation to it. Semi-smooth finish with some sticky pineapple/mango rolling into a refined semi-crisp tone.
Overall, I'd say a pretty nicely done New England styled IPA I could come back to.

$20.99/4 pack canned on 7/9/19 purchased in a couple of months old. But it's still really good. This is hazy as heck NE-style DIPA with tons of lace and a very aromatic nose full of tropical fruits. Taste is very good, fruity, slightly alcoholic, and with lingering hops. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, soft, low carbonation. Overall, one of the better Singlecut beers I've had...glad I tried it.

Amber & nicely hazy, this is a very nice 8.2% DIPA. Not a ton of fruit or citrus flavours, but some smooth full hop flavour with some mango & other tropical hints. Reminds me of Softly Spoken Magic Spells, but that one burned the throat a touch and I didn't get that here. Would definitely enjoy again.

Another excellent offering from SC. This beer just connects on every level. I'd say this is the best shelfie I've ever had and my favorite SC. If you've had Treehouse Very Green, this is right there in that stratosphere.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Super hazed golden juice pour. Thick fluffy white head... great lacing.

S: Tropical fruit juice.

T.F: Follows the nose. Tropical fruits and grapefruit. Pineapple, melon, and guava. Modest bitterness... tangerine and more grapefruit at the finish. Oily and slick on the tongue... medium bodied.

O: Another wonderful Singlecut IPA. Great flavor and well crafted... well worth your time.

In a word: Soft.
Even the color makes this look like a gentle yellow pillow of comfy boozy bliss. Its as gentle and ethereal as a beer can be. A Cavemans tastebuds might miss it all. There’s subtlety of peach, mango, honey, a wee bit of citrus rind, which I hesitate to mention because, for me, its so subtle and only underpins the other more noticeable elements within the delicate melange. When you think of hipster beer... this is it. Its so new school that its almost not even beer. But it is very good. I imagine that this is what people look for in a neipa. I myself prefer a bit more dank and pine in my ipa and certainly a less prohibitive price point... (which is pretty abdurd with this beer) but if you can steal
or mooch a can (as i did)... well, then... :)

Quite possibly in the top 5 best Singlecuts I’ve ever tasted. Pretty close to perfection, wish I could afford a case, simply outstanding brew from a brewery who I believe can be hit or miss (more hits than misses, sure) and, despite their ridiculous price point, is usually worth trying if you haven’t had one of Singlecut’s popular beers. Sammy Was Low is worth the $$ imo.

Drank from a one pint can purchased at Fort Point Market, Boston, MA
Canned on 2/19/19
Served in a teku

Hazy, pale straw yellow appearance. The body was topped by a small, soapy white cap of froth that quickly fell to a thin collar. A few odd-shaped streaks of lacing trickled down the glass.

The aroma was fantastic. Super fruity and bold with big passionfruit notes. Grapefruit also came through strong. Loads of lemon too. There was a nice honey malt presence as well. A touch sweet. Dank weedy notes appeared as the beer warmed.

The flavor profile was terrific and very similar to the nose. Super fruity and juicy. Grapefruit notes dominated. White grapefruit specifically. A touch pithy and bitter. Sweet honey malts balanced out the bitterness. Passionfruit was also noticeable. Citrus appeared in the center. Freshly squeezed orange and tangerine juices came to mind. Lots of lemony tartness as well. The beer finished with more citrusy tartness and a subtle pithy, bitter, citrus rind-like note.

Outstanding frothy, fluffy mouthfeel. Silky smooth and fuller bodied for the style. The liquid contained an ultra fine, zippy effervescence that turned pillowy soft and supple on the palate.

SingleCut are my go-to brewery for shelfie haze cans, and Sammy Was Low DDH IIPA possibly might be their best offering to date. The hops in both the nose and the flavor really popped, and the malts provided the perfect amount of sweetness, balance and body. This beer is right on par with some of the better hoppy offerings by Tree House, Trillium, etc.

16 oz can poured into a tulip pint.

Hazed-out, opaque blonde. Short creamy white head.

Guava, mango, peach, passion fruit, and candy sugar.

Guava nectar, mango juice, and a sappy dankness. Peach skin and passion fruit. Oat and candy sugar maltiness. Finishes with grapefruit and orange zest.

Medium-plus bodied, smooth, juicy, creamy, and semi-dry with a medium-light bitterness.

That's a smooth NEDIPA that just shot to the top of my SingleCut favorites.
