On tap in a pint glass.

Pours a partly cloudy dark-golden orange color with a near 2F durable white cap. Heavy lacing.

Citrus and tropical fruits. Caramel malts. Dank, pine, grapefruit, pineapple.

Grapefruit, pineapple and other tropical fruit. Pine, toasted grain.

Big IPA bitterness over a sturdy malt base.

An IPA jackpot. Lots of all the goodies: Hop bitterness, citrus and tropical fruits, resinous, and dank.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Duvel tulip

L: Hazy golden pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Outstanding lacing.

S: Citrus hops... grapefruit dominates. Light tropicals on top.

T/F: Light grain backbone... dank juicy hop profile. Loads of grapefruit/citrus. Mango... guava and pineapple. Classic NEIPA flavor. Light bodied... great carbonation. Slick mouthfeel... overall delicious.

O: An outstanding hazy IPA. Great flavor, great drinkability, and overall fantastic. One of Singlecuts best.

Hazy glowing pour with good lacing. Nose is really clean, detectable hop bitterness. Taste is crisp and hoppy, dry, clean. The hops don't blow your face off. Mostly resin and some grapefruit. Soft carbonation and finish.

Dated 1/31/18.

Dark orange juice in the glass, opaque. Two fingers of thick slightly off-white head that sticks around. Sour yellow grapefruit rind, blood orange peel, herbaceous grassy notes with a very faint lemony bubblegum at the end. Grassy notes combating with the rind/peel on the first taste, with a vibrant earthy bitterness. Resinous medium body that is quite bright. This would be a great IPA for windy summer day. Can't wait to have another!

I went to Seymour in Greenfield where something simply called "Half Stack" was being served. Not sure if this is the same drink. The beer had a slightly amber appearance to a mostly hazy, yellow look with patchy lacing and a thin head. The beer was pretty grassy; very pungent. Taste followed the nose with a semi sweet, almost honey like smell. Medium body. Overall, I loved the appearance and aromas.

I pretty much like like all single cut. Not as dank as some but solid all around.
