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.

Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma is big on citrus and tropical fruit and citrus with grainy caramel malt, great. My favorite kind of beer, a hop juice style ipa. Tasteis same as aroma. Doesnt get to much better than this, balanced perfectly with the caramel malt, but heavy on the hop side. Great stuff.

AndyReynolds (1079) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Can. Aroma is citrus hop, tons of grapefruit and subtle mango and honeydew melon(?). Palate is thick and coating. Taste brings out a great caramel malt backbone with some more powerful citrus.

Poured from can into Teku glass. Heavy carbonation. Very crisp. Flavor starts with malt and sweet pineapple before being overwash with a strong bitterness. This was good, but a bit out of balance compared to how I like my DIPAs.
