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.

Thanks footbalm for the can!! It pours golden (lighter than Furious?) with a small, disappearing white head. The aroma is malty with caramel, toffee, and some fruity, tropical hop oils. The flavor is very sweet with lots of toffeeish and caramel flavors with tropical fruit and peach finishing it off nicely. Very thick and sticky mouthfeel. Good flavor, but not as big of a hop punch as I thought it would be.

Bonus beer from Kbutler. Very tasty IIPA. Pours a lightly hazed glowing orange with a big frothy off white head that left behind some sticky lacing. Tones of citrus fruits and sticky pine with some semi sweet caramel malts in the back ground.

can thanks to Tharreld poured into a big snifter glass. pours a deep orange with a big 3 finger fluffy white head.... nice retention at about 1 finger throughout most of the glass. huge citrus hop nose with some pepper notes. medium to big mouthfeel with tons of grapefruit, orange and slight banana notes. some nice caramel malt tones give it a bit of support, but overall this is a hop bomb! big bitter finish with more citrus notes and some lingering malts. excellent IIPA in a big can!

Tasted 6/17/10. 16oz can. Filtered with a golden hue. Trace head. Total grapefruit aromatics with a faint malt backbone. Full bodied and a total hop bomb. Big emphasis on the grapefruit hops with a side of sweetness. Delicious!

Poured from a 16oz. can into a snifter glass. Has a nice orange/reddish/copper color with good head retention and high carbonation. Lots of citrus hoppy aroma with some nice caramel and toffee notes. Very malty taste. Caramel malts take over in flavor with some citrus hops and alcohol in the end. Very creamy mouthfeel with some hop bitterness. Me like!

I love Surly cans the do make my day and the can do an IPA. Can pored into a strait pint glass produced a nice two finger white head that lasted a while and the trailed of to a great lace. The body had a beautiful apricot colored hue to it. You got some great fresh citrus hops aromas’ from the glass as you held it to your lips. The flavor was nicely balanced for a DIPA not a west coast one for sure. The grapefruit bitter was blended with a orange sweetness. It reminded me of a tropical drink and it was quite refreshing. It had a medium feel to it with a ton of carbonation. A great drinking DIPA I would have loved a six pack of this brew but was thankful for the one. Serving type: can

oakbluff (413) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
Canned sample- pours a glowing tangering, slight haze, minimal head. Nose- ripe tropical fruit rinds, some pine, sweet cookie malts. Taste- hop forward as expected, thick resiny hop feel, spicy and sweet. Malt adds mostly a sweetness aspect to it, as this is all about the hops. Fairly thick creamy body with moderate carbonation. Quite easy drinking which is very dangerous. A four pack would slide down nicely, and likely lead me to being quite abrasive to those around me...

This poured a bright golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma was lots of citrus fruits, peach and grapefruits. Flavor was basically hop water, no malt to back it up at all, which is a good thing, loaded with citrus notes and fairly bitter. Another winner from Surly

Can from Guerde. Thanks guy! Depending how it’s held, it poured amber, copper or ruddy copper. The head was substantial and foamy. The hop aroma could anesthetize a pachyderm. The flavor starts resin, goes floral and permits a little malt to seep out. The finish is harshly, scratch that, abrasively bitter. Damn it’s good.
