Beer Review: SingleCut Weird & Gilly IPA

img_2845

SingleCut has found itself in a bit of trouble as of late and has had to close down for the time being due to some violations with NYC. I’m not letting it change the way I feel about their beers, which is very positively. I have been doing my best to track down all of their hoppy offerings. Here is one of their rotating American IPAs, Weird & Gilly which comes in at 6.6% ABV.

Appearance: Super hazy orange copper color. 1 finger fluffy, pillowy head with good retention and nice lacing. Clean looking label, has that nice matte feel to it.

Nose: Mango, tropical fruit, passionfruit, orange and lime. Pine and resin come through as well, really big on the tropical notes on this nose.

Taste/Mouth: Some tropical fruit carrying over but bit on the toasted cracker and biscuit malt flavors. Some orange, pine, floral and earthy notes. Finishes dry and bitter with a medium to thin feel. Medium to high carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Price/Availability: Grabbed it while in Massachusetts for about $8.

Overall: Weird & Gilly is my third SingleCut beer I have had and while it is certainly a solid IPA it falls short to SSMS and Mo’Shuggie. This is still a great beer and extremely drinkable. Would love to try it again, especially if it could be on draft. Loved the passionfruit and lime notes on the nose. I will definitely continue to grab up all the SingleCut I can!

Grade: B+
