SingleCut Bon Bon 2X TNT IIPA

Posted: April 16, 2016 in American Double/Imperial IPA, Reviews, SingleCut Beersmiths

One of the best parts about our annual Half Time trip is picking up beers from New York that aren’t distributed in New Jersey. I specifically look out for this brewery, SingleCut, and Grimm. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any beers from Grimm this time, but I picked up 3 from SingleCut.

2xTNTIIPA

ABV: 8.2%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “If you want more hops, you got it! So it seems there are quite a few fans of our “BON” TNTPA out there (ourselves included). So why not make it a whole lotta BON with an Imperial version? Well that’s just what we did!”

Random: The glass in the picture is one of the new, free ones that I got from Half Time.

This beer poured with a two finger, white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was incredibly hazy and bright orange in color with no visible carbonation because of the cloudiness. The nose was strong with lots of fresh oranges, mango, passionfruit and pineapple. There wasn’t much in the way of malt, which I was completely fine with. The taste had some earthiness with pine needle and grass, but almost instantly went tropical with pineapple and mango and sweet clementines. It had a note of white pepper that was unexpected, but gave the beer some depth. The body was on the thicker side with high carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with tropical fruit. A bomber of this was $6.99 ($.32 per ounce), which is a great price for a beer that is so solid. This beer was outstanding and if it were more easily available, this would be a go to beer.

Untappd Rating: 4.5/5.0
