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.

One of the best ipas out there. Smooth, clean and juicy. I could drink this forever.

On tap during a session tonight in NYC

appearance: Hazy, looks unfiltered. Great head and lacing.

smell: Strong notes of pine, sweet citrus (orange) tropical (mango/pineapple) and mild dankness. I smelled this beer before picking up the glass

taste: Smooth initial piney flavor melds into intense mango/pineapple/orange citrus with a mild dank finish. Malt is subdued with a faint biscuity smoothness.

mouthfeel: Ideal for an IPA - not too heavy, not too thin, and goes down easily.

overall: Learned about this brewery recently and have been really impressed. This is a great IPA

Amazing, you can taste the aroma in every sip, and that's a very good thing. My absolute favorite citrusy-hopped IPA, this one blew me away. The smell seems over-powering at first, but upon tasting, it's all beer.

I live in queens and this beer is all over the place so I figured it would be good to review. Had it out of the tap in a Mason jar.

Look: nice hazy light gold color. Two fingers of head with large uneven bubbles.

Smell: nice orange and grapefruit on the nose. Maybe a little passionfruit.

Taste: Some of the aroma carries through to the palate but it is quickly replaced with a refreshing piney bitterness.

Feel: it's not watery but it is a little on the thin side.

Overall(style points): Very nice single IPA from Singlecut. It hits a lot of the points that I want from my IPAs but only being a single holds it back in juiciness and mouthfeel. 92.5 points!
