“Now Ziggy played guitar / Jamming good with Weird and Gilly on the Windowsill. – David Bowie… kinda.

If you know SingleCut Beersmiths, you know their brand is, more or less, designed around classic rock. If you know your David Bowie, you know where Weird & Gilly comes from. Ziggy Stardust is a song written from the perspective of the Spiders from Mars, the backup band for fictitious singer Ziggy Stardust (Bowie’s alter ego for the album). In real life, “Weird” is bassist Trevor Bolder and “Gilly” is drummer Woody Woodmansey. SingleCut keeps the it rocking, and I love them for that.

Now let’s talk about the brew. The Weird & Gilly label says “Some Cat from Japan asked us to make an IPA that was juicy, and nothing else.” The first part is another Ziggy Stardust lyric reference, but did SingleCut get the job done? YES. The soft, tangy malt backbone lays out and really lets the hoppy citrus, pine resin and tropical fruit aromas and flavors shine bright. So many flavors. So delicious! So juicy!
