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".

1/2 growler fill from the brewery

nice looking clear amber brew, respectable looking head, film and lace left on the glass.

citric hop nose

more citrusy hop notes all over this one.

Quality IPA, worth a try if you see it at your local or if you make it to the brewery

Poured into a snifter at the brewery on 6/25, nice bright orange color with significant haze. One finger head laced the sides of the glass.

Wonderful floral aroma, resinous, bit of citrus. Taste has a bit more of a malt sweetness than the 18-Watt consumed before, it's got a bit more kick to it. I like the hops here more than the 18-Watt, as well. The flavor profile is similar, but it's more boisterous and the hops linger after the swallow. Grapefruit notes abound, some pine and herbs.

Overall this is definitely better than the 18-Watt and a really awesome IPA. Visiting Singlecut was a blast and the beers are all excellent.
