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.

Translucent amber. Small white head. Aroma of big ruby red grapefruit and sugar. Flavor is much more outstanding than what would be expected by the nose. Huge florals, sweet rub red and grass. Wonderful, and fresh.

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this Got N Trade beer. Pours a mostly translucent golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of resiny hop notes, lots of pine and a touch of grapefruit, some light caramel and hints of toffee. Flavor of resiny hops, kind of sweet maltiness, caramel, grapefruit and herbal notes.

Pours a dark, glowing orangey amber and topped with a fair amount of white head from the 16oz. can courtesy of arminjewell (thanks, buddy!): Luscious aroma of ripened tropical fruits, grass, chunks of pink grapefruit meat, and an undertone of caramel malts. Flavors of straight up citrus- tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and maybe some mango/pineapple/peach smoothie. Lots of fresh florals and medicinal herbs take the palate accompanied with some pine and resinous hops. Pretty malty and sweet, not in a turnoff-ish way, though I wouldnít say itís dangerously drinkable. Aftertaste of creamy butter. Sticky and soapy throughout. Wishing there was more hoppage action to balance this sucker out. Drinkability: All sweet up-front, but slowly turns into a silent killer. I donít trust it, kid, I just donít trust it. Pairing: Coconut creme de fraise over red velvet cake. Rebuy: Probably. #442 on 07052010, DG.

Can from arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Pine and tropical fruits dominate this beer in a really great way. Pours almost amber in color with two fingers of long lasting white head. Strong bitterness, slick hop oils and mango permeate this delicious brew. Finishes almost sweet from hop oils.

MeadMe (1307) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2010
A: Pours a light golden hue. Tall foamy head, good retention, like a lace bomb exploded in the glass. S: Aromas of booze, pine, citrus, green grass, and chemical solvent. Harsh without being off putting. T: Boldly hopped for sure. Very much citric, with lemon zest and pith included. A bit bitter for sure. Hints of more sweet and resinous pine along with floral green hops. The booze is there, but not in too big of a way. The aroma says this one is hopped as hell and I am sure there is a ton of malt there trying to provide balance but it really donít work (not a bad thing). It is hop forward and pretty damn good to be honest. M: On the fuller side of medium in body, fairly full for the style. Bold and bitter. D: Not the most drinkable, but still solid. It is tasty and one I enjoyed putting back while in the pool on a hot May evening.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2010
pours amber with a bright white head and good lace. really great intensely piny and hoppy nose. smells like a very enticing pine forest mixed with lemon peels. Not quite as bitter as one would expect as it is pretty well balanced with the malts, which gives it just a hint of a sweet characteristic. Very nice and quite tasty.

A rich citris aroma with an almost cloudy orange tint, and nice foamy head. Taste as it smells with sweet citrus with a more mild malt backround. Supprisingly smooth for itís name and ABV. All in all another great Surly limited release.

Sipping on this one as I type... poured from the can into my Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass with some good frothy white head with decent lacing. The aroma is remarkably fruity and leads perfectly into a well balanced fruity/sweet/bitter flavor. This is an incredibly drinkable DIPA and is a VERY close rival to Hopslam (my other favorite in the style). All in all one of the best beers Iíve had recently - cannot wait to get more - this one will be a staple in my fridge anytime Iím lucky enough to be able to have it. PURE CLASS. DELICIOUS and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - APR 30, 2010
16oz. can, with a big thanks to tytoanderso for the cans! Pours a clear orange golden with a large frothy off-white head that leaves nice lacing as it recedes. Aroma is a big dose of hops, including grass, earth, pine/resin, citrus and some rind, along with a hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet on the outset, followed by nicely balanced hops and malt, with spice, pine, grass/earth and more citrus rind and a mild lingering bitterness and some residual warmth. Nice stuff, if not a touch sweet, but still a very nice DIPA. Thanks again Ty!

Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is wow-hops x 2. Citrus, floral, and even some malt. Taste is super. Creamy, malt, pine, citrus, damn good beer. A good enough beer to pick the family up and move to Minnesota.
