Smells great, great mouthfeel, was hoping for a more full flavor. Solid overall. Good local option

Regrettably brief initial impressions from a 5oz pour on-draught @ SingleCut.

Low B- (3.30) / WORTHY

Bottle from Colonial Spirits.
Pours a hazy murky grapefruit juice color with a huge bubbly bone white head that persists. Bready toffee caramel maltiness with plenty of earthy citrus to counter. Sweet bready fruity maltiness. Citrus and pine hop flavor. Light to moderate hop bitterness. Not bad, a bit sweet for my tastes though

I was very excited to try my first Singlecut beer. Look is murky hazy orange/copper. Smell is faint pineapple and earthy. Taste is hoppy, but very earthy. White onion, fake pineapple. The pine profile saves the taste. Feel is chewy. Not what I expected. This is definitely a sipper but after one, it's one and done. Disappointed in this one. The bottle was also quite fresh.

650 mL bottle. Murky orange. More dark than bright. Smell is intense. Citrus, but more dank and piney. Sugary smell, too. Tastes of grain and bright citrus up front. Then it becomes more piney and dank. Boozy, too. Pretty sweet. This is intense.

Orange, dirty gold color. Cloudy. Small head that settles to rim bubbles. Little lace--just a couple of spots.

Prickly grapefruit rind and a bit of evergreen to the nose.

Brief neutral malt start, but the bitterness completely takes over. Fairly straight forward flavor. The bite from the hop is very strong, almost harsh. The body and carbonation are well within what one would expect. Overall, this comes across as a beer that extremists might enjoy. It's a bit much for me.
