Notes: LET’S TAKE A JUICY IIPA and ferment it with a wild yeast that adds even more fruity / tropical dimension. And then double dry-hop it using varieties known to impart fruity / tropical flavors and aromas. Are you sensing a theme here? IBU 132

$5 for can at Healthy Living in VT. Pretty expensive but an awesome beer. Pours hazy dark yellow with about a finger of head and almost no lace. Smells wonderful with piney dankness and some fruit. Taste follows with some butterscotch and candy mixed in. Medium body, low carbonation. Overall, one of the better Singlecut beers....excellent!

16oz can dated 7/2/19.

Pours cloudy gold with a decent head of white and good retention. Peach, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Ripe tropicals on the palate with zero malt and a firm bitterness. Peach, mango, and candied grapefruit. Finishes fairly dry with lingering citrus.

Pours a hazy straw color with a full finger of head. The nose has distinct notes of citrus fruits. The wild yeast really comes out in the flavor. The body is super light making this offering dangerously drinkable at 8+%.

Can to tulip.
The appearance was a ruddy orange color with a small white foamy head dissipating fairly quick. No lace was left.
The aroma had some citrusy pulp bittersweet and some rind with a touch of peach skin and grassy to subtle piney hop character punching at some zesty hop spice lightly underneath.
The flavor presents a fair balance of sweet citrus pith and peach flesh. Mild hop spice hits the aftertaste with some grassy to piney-ness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt good yet the hop spice has a noticeable harshness, no hop burn but just "noticeable." Finish was fairly grassy, smooth and piney.
Overall, pretty good for the most part but I believe some of those harshness qualities in the feel could be smoothed out a bit more.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed golden orange pour with thick fluffy white head. Great lacing.

S: Citrus! Big and fruity... the kind of beer that you can smell across the room.

T.F: Tropical fruits and a bit of sweetness up front. Very strong citrus... tangerine, orange rind, and grapefruit. Lighter mango and pineapple. Sticky on the tongue... modest bitterness. More fruit and citrus at the finish.

O: A fantastic big citrusy/fruity DIPA. One of Singlecut's best.

Light cloudy pineapple color with a 4F head in a Spielgelau IPA glass.
Aroma: citrus, dank.
Dry, crisp MF. Great for a 2xDH IIPA.
Very strong citrus, tropical taste, a bit of dankness.
Very hoppy finish. The IBUs are 132. This is a hop fest. Excellent finish.
Overall: very distinctive taste, very hoppy, great look. The aroma could have been a
bit more pronounced. Another standout beer from Singlecut.

Nice and hazy and on the lighter side of golden with no head from pounder can. Love the fruity nose with some kick. Great dank and sweet fruity flavor. Really like this one. Good on point medium carbonation.

A - Medium golden tan and opaque in color with ultra thin lacing.

S - Pungent and juicy citrus, citrus rind, and light peppery spice on the nose.

T - Sweet, juicy, and spicy grapefruit and grapefruit rind. Ends on the sweeter side with some residual bitterness on the very tail end.

M - Thick with prickly carbonation that gives way to a soft texture. Some light warming on the way down. There is some burn immediately in the mouth when it hits the tongue. Is this dry hopped with lupulin powder?

O - A fantastic Double IPA. Recommended.
