This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow/orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Nestled sticky lacing. The smell shows a fair amount of fresh citrusy zestiness over some danky sweet onion bitterness. Slight resinous backside to this one. The taste was semi-juicy with a nice spring-loaded bitterness from the citrus and resin. Definitely leans bitter rind-like in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a chewy bitterness hitting my tongue nicely. Appropriate bitter harshness hits just right. Overall, damn nice DIPA by Singlecut.

16 oz can split between friends poured into many pint glass.

A: Yellow gold clear body with a fluffy white head.

S: citrus, pineapple a little cracker malts on the end.

T: Follows the nose fairly closely a decent amount of bitterness on the end.

M: nice medium body good carbonation

O: this is a good beer, it isn't your soft no bitterness IPA though. It has a good fruit citrus flavor and good body.

Poured from a can dated 4/12/17. The beer pours a clear tan/amber color with fluffy white head the disappated in about two minutes leaving decent lacing.

The smell is pineapple, orange, pine resin, and a little malt sweetness.

The taste is pine resin, citrus, pineapple, and a definite sweetness. The taste is very well balanced between citrus, pine, and malt.

The mouthfeel is smooth with medium carbonation and slightly oily.

Overall this is a nice, balanced, delicious IIPA.

Look is a nice juicy Haze bomb, looks like tangerine orange juice kind of thing. Definitely no visibility passing through this thing, very light juice color.
The nose hits you with lots of tropical juice taste and finishes with a very dry note. I was hoping some of that tropical juice would carry over more but seems to be mostly up front. However, very drinkable, still lots of tropical flavor even with a dry finish.
Overall, nice brew. I would get again.
