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.

Awesome beer! Probably my favorite Imperial IPA. I wish they made this year round, but I suppose their Furious will have to do until next year! Cant wait to try their Wet.

Can, golden pour. Big resiny hop filled aroma. Big hop flavor, tea notes, great flavor, not harsh bitterness. Easy drinking 9% DIPA. Need more surly

Tasting from a can on 1/14/12. Canned 12/14/11, poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass. A: Appearance is cloudy copper with a tanish head. Light levels of lacing throughout the tasting. S: Where do i start? Smells like pine, grapefruit, big on hop aroma. Overall, smells intense like a big DIPA should. Reminds me of Maharaja. T: Grapefruit, pine, citra (?) hops, and tangerine. Get a little bit of the alcohol on the finish but just enough to know itís there. MF: Medium mouthfeel with lower levels of carbonation (maybe felt that way due to the high ABV?) and a drier finish. Smooth. O: This is one of my favorite Surly brews and DIPAís in general, iím very fortunate to be able to find this locally. I cant help but compare it to Avery Maharaja which i think is fairly similar in style and complexity. I remember taking down a couple of growlers of this stuff with friends when it was called 16 Grit. Have loved it ever since. Iím glad i only have 11 more in my cellar to finish up. =) Serving type: can Reviewed on: 01-14-2012 21:32:05

Draft at Churchkey for the Surly event. GIGANTIC scallion, onion, leek, hot mulch, and cheesecloth on the nose. So fresh and SO dank. The same holds true for the flavor; very little sweetness of any sort, just huge onion and evergreen. Still, awesome.

Wonderful light amber/copper pour with thick white head. Aromas of grapefruit and spruce. Nice malt flavor, touch of sweetness from the honey. Medium bodied , great dry finish, bitterness throughout. Overall, an outstanding IPA with the balance between hops and malts.

Pours hazy orange with white head. Pine needles on the nose sweetness too. Big flavors of the forest. Grass, alfalfa, honey, pine needles..sweetness and bitterness working together seamlessly. Wish I had a never ending supply.

Pours orange amber with a small white head. Thereís a lot of pine in the nose with some resin. The taste is hoppy with heavy bitterness, a light sweet malt backbone, and a long dry bitter finish. This one will definitely scorch the palate, but itís pretty good.

Like furious, but better. Although I still donít think its as good as everyone makes it out to be.
