Half-Stack IPAHalf-Stack IPA
Notes: CRANK THE HOPS to the point right before tastebuds bleed with a PNW / Aussie blend. Super smooth malt base, pine resin, bright tangerine and pineapple hop flavor and aromatics. At 105 IBU’s, “Half-Stack” is a relative term – As we like to say, “If it’s too hoppy, you’re too old!

Pours an opaque orange with a finger of white foam. Head retention is fair. Aroma is orange and mandarin orange with a little tangerine, followed up quickly by resiny, dank hops. The stickiness of the hops lingers. Flavor profile is orange, mandarin orange, tangerine and peach with resiny, dank, herbal hops sweeping in at the finish. The flavor dichotomy is much less stark than in the aroma. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a smooth, pillowy texture. Overall, big notes, but it never gets out of hand. It jerks the tastebuds around like a driver in Manhattan gunning for their destination - lots of abruptness.

Draft.

If this was released by trillium, people would be wetting their little panties over it.


This is truly delicious, very light for an IPA, drinks almost like a pale ale, but this is the north east were talking about. Exploding with floral nz and aussie hops. Decent bittering hops though. My father called it very "green".

Slightly hazy, orange colored beer with a fluffy white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. The aroma is fruity and bitter with mostly orange and pine. The taste is fruity and sweet with a nice pine bitterness. This is a quite enjoyable IPA.

16.9 oz. bottle

Pours a hazy gold with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like honey, canned peaches, apricot, orange, dank mango, guava, papaya, pineapple, biscuit, with fresh pine and earthy grass. Tastes like honey malt, pineapple, peach, mango, passionfruit, apricot, musty papaya, some biscuit notes, with dank pine and fresh earthy grass. Feels medium bodied, creamy with low carbonation. Overall a nice and unique IPA.

500mL bottle poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Slightly hazy but still relatively see through. Very little head with a tiny bit of lacing.

Smell: Smells like super fresh mangos, pineapple, orange, passion fruit, and papaya. Almost like a fruit smoothie.

Taste: The taste is much of the same as the nose. The only problem I have with Singlecut's beers is that the malt taste is a bit harsh on the finish of the beer. Otherwise, their beers are perfect.

Feel: Feels about average for an IPA. Pretty smooth and easy drinking for a 100+ ibu bomb.

Overall: I really really like all of Singlecut's offerings. I really would like to see more from them and will not hesitate to buy whatever I see for sale from them.

I got this as an extra in a trade, and I sure did get lucky. The aroma is really what got me! Exceptional! A very creamy, well balanced taste as well. Im now gonna try to get my hands on the Double version.
