On tap at the brewery the first day they announced it was back on tap.
A: Keep yellow hue, perfectly clear and quite possibly the most gorgeous color I've seen in an IPA. Nice fluffy white head with excellent lacing
S: I could smell this beer across the table - Intense tropical citrus aroma that's about as strong as I've encountered, amazing
T: I can't get over the smoothness of this beer, while still giving an intense whallop of tropical citrus hops. Very bright notes of pineapple, orange and grapefruit all with a smooth, VERY subtle malt sweetness. Totally unique and winning
M: Just about ideal, just enough malt but not sweet or cloying. Totally there to prop up the hops. Thanks SingleCut!
O: Could be my favorite SingleCut beer to date, very close to outstanding
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Rattle N Hum. My first taste of a SingleCut beer more than a year after their opening. I must admit that the mixed reviews I've read and heard via word of mouth have kept me from making a visit a top priority.
This is a solid IPA I suppose but not an exceptional one. The pour is dark gold, decent clarity, about a finger of off white head that settles down rather quickly, modest lacing. Decent aromatics. I'm getting mostly piney, resinous hops and a noticeably bready malt component to the aroma. This is borne out in the flavor. It's actually pretty balanced in that the malt is there in a prominent way, again with a bready, chewy, lightly sweet character, but not enough to overpower the hops, which are piney, resinous, and bitter. None too subtle or particularly flavorful. This doesn't have the aspirin bitter finish of some other heavy handed IPAs you'll encounter but the overall impression seems to be more bitter than, well, delicious. This drinks almost like an imperial, what with the bigger malt character and a touch of booziness as well.
Medium-full body helps to further that impression. Medium carbonation, good feel overall. Sort of a semi-dry finish, doesn't clean up completely.
Again, this is a solid IPA but this style has come so far these days that this simply does not stand out or rise above the many others that either are its equal or superior.
