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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 (sample courtesy of Mark, big thanks!) Pours a clear golden with little, white head. Aroma is piney spicy hops. Oily texture, medium to full body, medium carbonation and a bitter, somewhat warming finish. Flavour is well balanced with moderate bitterness and some sweetness.

A super hoppy and bitter beer that has a crisp bitter finish. Smells piney and hoppy. Pours a dark orange in color. Had in a can at home. Top 10 beer for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HighWine (946) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2013
Can to New Belgium globe. Apricot honey colored pour with a rocky two finger white head. Fairly well laced. Dank aroma with juniper and tangerine pith. Taste is resinous with a touch of cereal and a slightly sweet grapefruit finish. Otter grapefruit lingers on the palate. Above average drying of the mouth. Full flavored and well crafted.

Single finger head on top of a clear orange pout. Aroma is full of citrus & mango. Taste is full on citrus, mango and a little dish soap. Really dry. Aggressively dry hopped, pleasantly abrasive! Creamy mouth overall. One of the best out there.

Taste was more caramel and hops to me. I want another!! Thanks Eric!

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2009
At Happy Gnome, served in a mini tulip, appearance is clear gold with a minor head. Aroma is quite citrus like, hops, and sweet. The flavor is solid citrus IPA with sweetness and lots of warmth. The palate is rich and delecate. Overall, nice.

Growler. Pours hazy amber color with a decent sized off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, light caramel, orange. Flavor is again grapefruit, pine, mango, pear, orange. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finished bitter. This was fantastic, cant imagine how great it would be fresh from the tap. A+
