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.

Canned on 2/19. Poured to Birrateque IPA 18OZ Glass on 3/3.
A: NIce Peach colour. Less than 1 finger of cloud. disappear quite soon.
S: Tangerine, peach , grapefruit notes. Not felt malt aroma.
T: Strong mango, peach and tropical fruits mix. Like a fruits juice. Behind of that, comfortable hop bitterness follow.
M:Medium to light body. Light Carbo,Quite smooth but tasty.
O: Good harmony of Hop and Malts. Sweetness and bitterness also great balanced. Not too sweet as well as not too bitter.Easy to drink and smooth and crisp.
One of the best SingleCut IPA for me. AFter taste is quite fine.
IBU123, ABV8.2.

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.

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

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

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

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

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