Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Billy 18-Watt IPA

THE REDEFINITION OF THE SESSION IPA. Orange zest, pine resin and tropical lupulin beauty that easily rivals much bigger IPAs, with a substantially full, soft malt body that compliments but doesn’t interfere with the hop attack. When you want the push, weight, and attack of a much heavier (I)IPA but need to be productive tomorrow – One of our proudest accomplishments.

Canned 10-24-18: into 16oz IPA
L: Very cloudy, dark orange. Quick dissipating foam head.. light lacing.
S: As advertised.. orange, mild brush of citrus flavors, and pine. I'm not getting much in the tropical arena.
T: Orange, and then more.. giving way to a pine bite that has a mild bite.
F: Medium carbonation, nice bitter bite front to back.
O: I've had 18W a few times.. and this seems a bit more 'grainy' than previous tastes. It's still a damn good session NEIPA.

16oz undated can.

Pours cloudy, dark gold with a short-lived head. Tropical fruit with some stale, papery malt in the nose. Medium bodied with a crispish, almost creamy mouthfeel. Tangerine, mango, and peach on the palate with some wet cardboard. Finishes with some lingering bitterness, dried citrus and wet paper.

No telling how old this beer is but probably past prime.

Pours a hazy blonde with streaks of reddish-gold and a huge head. Citrus wallop in the nose, similar to beers like Focal Banger and Super Session. Mango, grapefruit and perhaps apricot (?) flavors dance on the tongue. Malt base is no slouch as it keeps everything cohesive. Finishes with the perfect touch of bitterness and acidity. I've glad to have finally gotten around to sampling Singlecut's offerings.

16 ounce can with mostly unreadable date stamped on side of can. Label says to pour into wide mouth glass, I follow directions, poured into wide mouthed mason.
Pours a hazy, milky, dirty orange with
just off white head. Some light lacing on the glass. Big nose of citrus, grapefruit, zest, soft tropicalness of guava.
Taste starts as bitter white grapefruit, grass, floral, and ends with a bitter finish. A bit of pepper too. The nose and taste do not match up. That’s just fine with me. Smooth initially, finishes sharp and drying mouthfeel. Creamy and light carbonation.
Overall, this is a big flavored, big little beer. Glad to have tried.
