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.

Pours a really nice caramel color with a hint of peach hues. 1 inch head that fizzled away. Smells a bit nutty with some citrus and pine. Doesn’t smell like it is going to be very bitter. A little funky. Each sip hits the tongue with a sharp bite but then quickly smooths out with some sweetness. Definitely not as hoppy as a west coast IPA. I enjoy these more balanced hoppy/malty beers and think they have a high drinkability. Leaves my palate candy-coated and I can’t wait to get the chance to try this again.

NIce looking beer, wonderful golden color with a big frothy head. I love surly but this beer just doesn’t do it for me like the others. smells like a tropical wonderland but taste like a one dimensional fuck. Alcohol is high but somewhat blended. A little grapefruit in there but not much. Expected more from my boys at Surly. Still very nice though

[Thanks to MatSciGuy]. 16fl. can. Orangish colour with a good initial formation of off-white head, with an average lasting. Aroma is fruity, orange peel is present; strong hoppy. Flavour has bittery hints at the beginning, pine and orange traces are present, also it has resin hints. The final is really good with an excellent bitterness with a good persistence and duration in the aftertaste. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium to high.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 From a can. Solid lacing. Earthy, piney aroma with citrus notes. Thick mouthfeel. Earthy flavors. Update - 2013 version - Pour a lightly cloudy gold. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, sweaty jockstrap, onion and garlic. Real fresh hoppiness, very dank. Delicious

Can. Split with and courtesy of Tom. Pours a honey orange with a fat fluffed white head and some spotted sea-foam lacing. Aroma is so unqiue; oniony, fresh pine, bitter blood orange, and some insane peanut brittle. Medium bodied with a chewy, thick, yet soft palate. Flavors run along the hop profile line with some savory, oniony, and subtle earthy peanut butter flavors. I know it sounds odd, but it all works so well. Trust me. This is one hell of an IPA.

Aroma is tons of piney, resinous, and citrus hops - notably grapefruit. Pour is a deep orange with a good sized foamy head. Lots of lacing. Seems to be a perfect amount of carbonation. Taste is no surprise with piney hops and citrus. Finishers with sweet biscuity malt back, before the bitter hop finish One of my favorite DIPAs. There is a whole lot going on here I probably didn’t do justice to.

Poured from can, golden amber with a very hoppy aroma. Me like! Very well balanced with a nice, full presence on the tongue.

readbaron (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 Nose is all bitter, piney, resinous, dank hops. Definitely abrasive. Pours out a deep orange with slightly off white fluffy white foam. Excellent lacing. Taste picks up where the nose leaves off. A blast of piney hops, hints of citrus, a touch of honey malt, then finishes bitter. Palate is quite nice - creamy and crisp. Excellent DIPA.

Draft at Churchkey. Amber colored, with a medium sized white head. Aroma was hops, heavy on the hops. Dank. Resin notes in the flavor, with a great hop character, heavy on the malts. Pretty good, but alcohol was a bit much for my palate.

Deep amber pour with a great white head. Cheesy hop dankness, apricot, garlic, and all incarnations of nectar and stone fruit. Big scallion and sweet onion with dank herbal notes and resins nectar. Thick palate with tannic hints in the finish.
