2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A disappointing debut from this new local brewer with a great brand. Itís one of those sweet, overly bitter IPAs with no complexity, no hop aroma, no personality. Just bitter sugar water. Tons of chocolate, caramel. Blech.

@ Singlecut. Pours copper with an off-white ring. Aroma is in your face piney hops. Quite the surprise there. Taste follows through and is not totally overpowering. Interesting how restrained the taste was considering the aroma. Palate was slightly thin, though they also had the beer on nitro. Didnít try the nitro, but Iím going to assume Iíd like the mouthfeel better there. Finish is bitter and does not linger long. Iím a fan of this one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft: mahogany color with a thin white head, grainy aroma and taste, something is a little off with this beer for me. Mediocre.

Decided to get a second flight at Rattle grab a couple more NY rates. Pours clear brown with light head. Nose of malt and toast. Tastes of florals, white pepper, malt, plastic and burnt cheese (kinda like what hits the pan when making grilled cheese). Touch too thin and odd aftertaste.

Drought. Brown with a reddish tint, beige foamy small head, cereal like aroma, semi-sweet hoppy taste, low carbonation, average finish. Tasted a bit weak and flat to me.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
On tap at the brewery. Beautiful clear amber pour. Thatís about the only good thing. Aroma is roasted peanut skins and burnt peanut oil. Thereís a nice hop character hiding way in the back, but it tastes like something very bad happened to this beer. I canít imagine this is what they intended.

I rarely write actual reviews but I had to here. The beer looks nice but it tastes like burnt popcorn. Iím not a noob, I just donít write reviews much, but I had to in this case. Totally disgusting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at The Growler, 4/10/13
Aroma: The nose has some citrus, herbal, and pine hops, caramel malts, and some toast as well
Appearance: This one has a dark red pour with a beige head, and fairly thick, heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose component-wise, it leans bitter without too much sweetness
Palate: The body of this one is medium and it has a decent mouthfeel, the finish is on the dry side
I thought this was a perfectly acceptable hoppy red beer. It isnít a standout for the style, but it is pretty clear between this and the Half Stack (vs. the Lagrrr) that Singlecut, so far at least, does ales better than lagers.

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane and another introduction to a new local brewery. Pacific Northwest hopped. A light reddish body, with a little head and lace. Big carbonation. Getting yeast and hops, also a little funky. Drinkable, not what I would expect from the style, still for me drinkable.
