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.

16oz can into nonic pint
Canned on 3/27/17 (less than 2 weeks ago)
L- pours a clear brownish-gold with thin white cap, lacing as well
S- tropical fruit salad, noticeably papaya, some pine as well
T- sweet cream, followed by this amazing blend of tropical fruits interwoven beautifully with pine
F- light to medium bodied, high carbonation, no alcohol burn despite 8.2%
Overall can't ask for much more from Singlecut, amazing new style tropical fruit, with outstanding old style pine, also perfectly balanced.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. No Comment March 27th 2017.

Mostly clear bodied, with a pale amber orange color. Good amounts of fine carbonation at a moderate pace. Head creation is a bit minimal but sturdy, reaching just over two fingers and a bleach white appearance. Excellent ring lacing and swiss cheese fine bubbles in the head, with some staying power.

Good solid dank and tropical hop notes permeate the nose. Aroma hits of sticky pineapple and melon primarily, with excellent earth tones. Nice balance too and a good bounce between them with neither really dominating or taking over. Small hints of malt sugars but nothing large. Very nice.

Very interesting palate. Good mix of pineapple notes, but definitely more attack with earth and spicy like hop bitterness to match. Peppery pineapple flavors mix in with light bitterness in the mid palate. Juiced warmth with good herbal bite on the finish that really lingers. A good malt coating as well that just adds a touch of sweetness but lets the hops and bitterness do the talking. Pungent, tropical, and earthy blasting.

A neat dank angle for a brew, and one that does taste like it smells. Very solid and tasty.
