COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure weíre abrasive. We were abrasive long before we were Surly. If you visit the brewery you can still see remnants of the industrial manufacturing factory Omarís parents ran for 35 years within those same 4 walls. Bandsaw blades, grinding wheels, and sanding discs came long before ales and lagers. But letís 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.

Pours mildly hazy amber with thin head that dissipates quickly. Bready malt combined with pine and citrus hop aromas with a slight hint of bananas. Medium body with sticky mouth feel with soft carbonation. Well rounded up front with creeping increase in bitterness as it finishes. Not overly sharp on the tongue in the finish. Very good double IPA. Compared to Wet 2011, a much more balanced beer.

(16oz can from Alpar). Pours a clear copper color with soapy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has lots of resinous, dank hops. Some tropical fruits. Taste is sweet with plenty of bitterness. Full bodied with a sticky texture. Good.

Fresh pine grass. Phenomenal citrus flavor. Abrasive is the perfect definition

Can shared by Ari, thanks! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a ton of hops with notes of pine, onion, and a bit of grapefruit backed by sweet grains. Flavor begins with sweet grains but quickly becomes hoppy with onions, pine and sweet grapefruit in the finish.

Pours a nice, coppery-orange color with small, quickly dissipating head. Strong floral-citrus aromas. Flavor is quite bitter with strong citrus notes and a real hop bite. Finish is quite bitter. This is a very good double IPA--not the best Iíve tried, but right up there.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Didnt think I would have a surly brew I enjoyed more than Furious, however this one takes the cake! For anyone who loves a bitter hoppy beer this is the epitome of delicious beer, great color, aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. Had this beer on tap at the White Horse in St. Cloud MN, great bar with excellent food and beer, stop in if visiting St. Cloud and want a great place to hangout.

Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a slightly cloudy deep copper color with a smallish off white head that shows moderate retention and lace. Smells of hops, tastes like em too. Lots of pine and citrus and floral hops with a faint bit of bready malt sulking deep in a dark corner. A bit of malt breaks through in the flavor but is quickly sent to its room by the onslaught of pine and citrus. Medium body and level of carbonation with a slick resinous almost sticky mouthfeel. Damn good beer right here, although I donít find it horribly abrasive as advertised. Then again Iíve spent the last few years building up an immunity to Iocane powder, I mean lupulin.

473ml can. Canned on 12/01/11. The first thing you notice when you pour it is not the color but the smell, you kinda wanna sing to yourself a happy tune. It pours a copperish color with a frothy white head. The smell is awesome. Tons and tons of mango, persimmon, papaya all wrapped up in a nice sugar cane like sweetness. The flavor follows. Sweet and tropical with a nice piney bitterness on the back end. Perhaps a bit sweet but a nice tropical IPA, surely not abrasive, a bit cloying, but otherwise easy to drink.
