COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a big grapefruit bouquet as intense but not quite as fickle as Lake Superior herself, this smooth and spicy brew will take you on a ride. Stoned Surf is a medium-bodied IPA with a frisky hop aroma to balance its complex malt backbone. Speaking of backbone, this ‘Merican Pale Ale is intended for those with just that. Think big, think bold, think about hopping in the lake and taming a fresh water wave, my friend.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 On tap at the source. Bumped pint glass. Copper in color with a solid quarter finger head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with pine qualities. Pretty standard IPA but nothing that detracts from the taste. Slight citrus nature but it does feel formulaic. I can drink this but I want more unique characteristics. Something seems to be missing. Very middle of the road. I’d order again if I’m Duluth.

Tap at brewery brew pub. Some bitterness in the nose. Malty hop then palatable bitterness. Just above average for the style.

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Sampled from the tap at Winterfest 2015. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some earthy citrus, light grass, a grain backbone and a hint of onion. Flavor has lots of grass and a bit of bitter citrus with pine and light grains underlying.

Growler from brewery. Amber color. Fragrant fresh hop aroma. Taste - resinous green hop flavors. Bready malt and pine. Nice fresh tasting IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. A red-toned beer, this gives off a solid impression and is fun to drink. Malt, malt and more malt, with hops, hops and more hops. Piney and oily, I might label this a double IPA. Yummy. (#5682, 8/29/2014)

Nero55 (865) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Draft. Medium copper with thin off white head. Aroma of resinous hops and citrus notes and light caramel. Medium body with resinous hop bitterness upfront, grassy notes, and a bitter finish.

JK (4961) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Tap at Canal Park. Dry and bitter. Herbal, with fresh plants. The hops are not very strong, which is ok, but this is a very dry beer. Light palate.

I agreed that I liked the somewhat softer approach to the IPA. Amber/gold body. Lower bitterness in the finish. Nice balance. (on tap at Winter Beer Dabbler, January 2014).
