4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at Reggie’s in Chicago, IL. I think this is a brew that lives up to its name. Appearance is a slightly cloudy gold with a rich white head. Aroma is pure citrus hops, definitely an aggressively hopped brew, smell is pretty good. Taste is pretty bitter but also pretty enjoyable, rich in citrus and grapefruit hop notes, finish is slightly dry. Overall, very nice DIPA and would gladly have this again.

Can, thanks Chase! Canned on 12.19.13. Awesome grapefruit and passionfruit aroma. Cloudy straw color pour with nice creamy white head. Pretty decent bitter bite up front that then mellows with grapefruit transitioning to passion fruit. Finish has a decent amount of bitterness, but again the aftertaste is more fruity and floral. Some fresh cut grass notes comes out as it warms.

Poured from can to glass. Hazy straw hue with white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is a hop explosion of citrus, pine, naval orange, big grapefruit aroma. Mouthfeel is nice with light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry with nice hop bitterness. Overall this is a really nice brew with huge hop flavored and aroma. Very little maltiness to be found.

Pours light yellow from can. Carbed up pretty heavy. Smells of hops fill the room during pour. Very dry, light, hoppy. Very nice IPA!

One of the better IPAs I have had. Poured from can (thanks to my buddy chad!). Had this side by side with Maine Brewing Lunch and Pliney the Elder. It got 2nd place behind Pliney. But close. Yellowing Florecent color. Very fruity and tropical aroma. Bitter hoppy and perfect fruit balance. Delicious beer

500 ml can. Hazy golden. Fine medium sized white head. Piney hoppy aroma. Some grapefruit as well, but for the most part piney. Very delicate, and bold at the same time. Lots of caramel and malts to balance. Abrasive, indeed. Well balanced. Rich malty flavours and fresh hop flavours. A very tasty double IPA. Love it. Thanks Morten.

Can thanks to Bob! Drank from the can, so no comments on color, clarity, or head. Nose is citrus with notes of danky perfume. No real malt aroma. They should have used wide mouth cans. Duh! Taste is initially a bit sweeter than I was expecting, with a medium to high amount of flavor hops. Not overly bitter and the hops are, dare I say, balanced, for a DIPA. Finishes kinda sweet. overall enjoyable. Would like to try on draft one day.

Incredible pine and citrus aroma. Citrus sweetness just about perfectly balanced with heavy hop bitterness. Pours gold and drinks easy. Wouldn’t guess 9% abv. Another great beer from Surly.
