I’ve been a pretty big music nerd for most of my life so I’ve got a big soft spot in my heart for NY’s @singlecutbeer, and the #canart from this can of Side Two (6.6%) IPA really sucked me in. It pours a really thick medium-gold hazy color with a ton of carbonation. It’s more malty than hoppy on the nose but has plenty of each, along with lots of banana. It drinks similarly: there’s a ton of hops, possibly even more malt and a lot of banana flavor, almost like a hoppy (boozy) banana smoothie. It’s got a mildly creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish; it’s interesting and a little funky; rock and roll; 4.0/5.
