Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a sturdy murky semi-dark copper/orange color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some messy lace wound around the glass.
The aroma had a nice blend of sweet grassy to tropical hops. A touch of bitter rind-like hops came in subtly over some earthy hop features.
The flavor was moderately sweet and seemed to bring in a little bit of dankiness not smelled in the aroma. Noted biscuit malt notes. Then the aftertaste was mild and somewhat tropical with some of the dankiness and biscuits.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps slightly under, yet having a very nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Nice danky to tropical mobile sweet sort of finish.
Overall, pretty nice AIPA that I could come back to.

On tap at the Red Dove in Geneva NY. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a persistent off-white head. Initial impression is citrus, tropical fruits, grass, and a slight earthiness. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium; carbonation is perfect. Finish is slightly dank and bitter, but not unpleasantly so. Quite enjoyable.

M: Medium body good carbonation. A little sticky on the tongue.

O: This is a pretty damn good beer. Lots of sticky hops and a medium feel not a super juice bomb but has well rounded bitterness.

More grassier / earthier hop flavors - I got a lot of amarillo - and there is a little bit of dry tropical fruit in the background - papaya, etc- but nothing really stands out. Probably the weakest Singlecut beer I have had so far

I can't think of how many times I've had this beer (it's on tap in a number of places I frequent including their tap room) and each time think to myself what a lovely, complex, unique and satisfying beer this is. Had this one from a can and it is every bit of that.
