COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure we’re abrasive. We were abrasive long before we were Surly. If you visit the brewery you can still see remnants of the industrial manufacturing factory Omar’s parents ran for 35 years within those same 4 walls. Bandsaw blades, grinding wheels, and sanding discs came long before ales and lagers. But let’s be honest, this is a lot more fun. Pale in color, this over-hopped, under-brewed Double IPA has almost twice the amount of hops & malt crammed in the can. Seasonal between March and April.

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Can that pours gold. Big huge citrus aroma that just explodes when drank. This is huge full flavored beer that goes down damn easy for 9%. Need more of these.

On-tap at Mikkeller and friends Iceland. One of the best IPAs. Lots of hops, balance, citrus and a malty backbone.
