Can dated 8/4/20 into pint glass. Pours a hazy gold (SRM 3-ish) wit a persistent off-white head. Initial impression is sweet grapefruit, a touch of pine resin, and restrained caramel. Mouthfeel is sodt and sticky. Finish is more citrus, fading to a slight sweetness. Overall, another extremely enjoyable DIPA from Singlecut!

Why did I buy so many Singlecuts? Because I could. They are over priced, but my dealer knows I don't look at the price.

It pours yellow, cloudy, about what you would expect. The whole product is about what you would expect - a middle of the road (well behaved) New England style AIPA. The style works for most brewers and this one is very competent.

Can dated 8/16:
Opaque cloudy ripe banana yellow, near a pineapple juice look. Head is white and lacing is pretty solid. Feel is a little rough, with nice carbonation that seems to bust through the creamy look more than expected. Sweetness up front leads to a medium heft, but the carbonation and semi-dry finish lighten things up.

Nose is oat and light unripe fruit notes - there's a floral aspect to the sweeter notes and a bit of pine wood as the beer warms. In between, the nose seem sort of like tropical fruit skins with even a little bit of a banana note. The taste is unsurprisingly not too fruity - though there's a little sweetness undercut by a bitterness that is reminiscent of fruit skins. Pineapple core, mango skin, strawberry, tangerine peel, and a hint of something like coconut that might be coming from a "smoothing agent" like oats. A modest piney bitterness comes in late, increasing the lighter bitterness of the fruit skins from earlier.

This is a little on the bitter side, especially versus juicy NE IPAs. It appears to have changed after 2017, based on the appearance reviews from that year. It's still not that bitter, overall, especially compared to an average well made WCIPA.

This DIPA pours a straw colored haze with a fine head. Light citrus aromas spill out as it hits the glass. A soft mouthfeel explodes with a grapefruit flavor hits the tongue that fades to a ripe stone fruit finish. The only thing that could improve this beer is a more intense aroma.

A bright straw blonde pull of a tap with copious white head and plenty of glass lacing. Piney and citrusy hops bring their presence to the nose. Richly malted with just about the perfect gravity, this is a hop-head's dream come true. Both piney and citrusy, it's also dry and slightly dank. How'd they do that? A true delight, with an unnoticeable 8+ % ABV.

Tasted in a snifter from draft at Consume on February 21, 2020. When your tastebuds beg for a pounding this IIPA sneaks up with smoothness. Notes of citrus fruit. Dank bitterness with a piney bite. Floral, dank pine and citrus aromas.

Recieved this in trade with mdfb79 back in Nov/Dec 2015 - Thanks Dan!
16.9oz bottle served in some taster nonic style glasses

Lighlty hazed, straw golden body with a paper white stack of healthy foam head and some sticky ribboned lacing.
Fruity, light, and crisp with a drying finish and nice resinous hop kick,. Hops are pine, dank herbs, and citrus zest. with a restrained crackery malt, Pretty straight forward IPA and well balanced. Drinks more like a West Coast style. Would gladly enjoy again.
