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.

A golden DIPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, beautiful floral hops, intense piney and citrusy character, over biscuit malt. In mouth, a nice citrusy biscuit malt with loads of pink grapefruit pulp, floral and resinous hops, very nice and complex, a good example of the style. On tap at End of Everything beer fest Dec 22 2013.

500mL can, sent from khoffman43 (thanks a lot, Kyle), pours a fairly clear golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is packed with piney hops, biscuity malts, a little grapefruit and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out a wallop of herbal, piney and grapefruity hops, biscuity malts, a touch of caramel, and some juicy citrus fruitiness on the finish. A nice big, moderately juicy hop bomb without any undesirable astringency. Quite a unique hop profile that works exceedingly well. Well-balanced and highly drinkable. Excellent stuff.
