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.

Tasted from can obtained from a trade. Pours clear amber orange with a huge white head that is frothy and rocky with excellent retention. Nose is bitter and citrus hops with a great malt backbone and just a hint of bread and yeast. Flavor is bittersweet up front with some caramelization on the middle along with pineapple and other tropical fruits. The hops come in with light lemon and bitterness on the back. The body is medium with average carbonation and a beautiful tropical fruit and bitter finish. This is a first class DIPA.

Can, I love that...Pours a hazy amber with an off white head. The head has good lasting and laces well. Aroma is good with a nice sweet hoppiness and hints of citrusand spruce. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is good, a nice mild bitterness. Has a medium to full body. A real good finish and an awesome aftertaste. This is a real good beer, if you get the chance drink it.

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
