COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thanks Gryder for this one! Pours a golden orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is a hopheads heaven!! Grapefruit and solid hops DOMINATE the aroma. Hits of caramel malts peek through in the background. Flavor is of pure hop, grapefriut, and some pine, followed by a nice sweet malt backing that ends in a bitter finish, and those hops just go on and on! LOVE THIS BREW!!!!!!

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Didnt think I would have a surly brew I enjoyed more than Furious, however this one takes the cake! For anyone who loves a bitter hoppy beer this is the epitome of delicious beer, great color, aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. Had this beer on tap at the White Horse in St. Cloud MN, great bar with excellent food and beer, stop in if visiting St. Cloud and want a great place to hangout.

Poured from a can into a pilsner. A. Pours a reddish brown hue, thick 2 finger head, continued to maintain a 2mm thick head sip after sip. S. Smells strongly floral, lots and lots of sweet pine, and tons of citrus. This is a big smelling beer the second you open the can. T. Tastes of sweet citrus, lots of pine, slightly sour grape fruit, and tangy orange peel. M. Medium body, coarse feeling, with a lightly dry finsh. O. I love this beer. Itís well balanced flavor, and an amazing smell. I could open a can of this and leave it in my bathroom as an air freshener! This is a super tasty beer. Everyone should try this beer at least once (But needing to have more wonít be an option).

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Phenomenal brew. It?s balance of sweetness, hope aroma, fresh hop flavor and bitter is almost without equal. (16oz Can/Apple Valley Liquor) 02/2012

Awesome beer! Probably my favorite Imperial IPA. I wish they made this year round, but I suppose their Furious will have to do until next year! Cant wait to try their Wet.

Nice beer color. Poors nice two fingers head. Drank out of wine glass for optimal openning up. Not as hoppy as Iíd like, couldíve used more. ABV is lacking, had 3 of these and still felt fine to drive. Paired nicely with a McDouble and a few apples from MacDons. Probably wonít buy again, I could get much more Bud Ice for the same price.

Iíll only rate a few bees at 100% and this is one of them. If you like grapefruit juice and can get it buy a 4 pack. One of the best tasting and smelling beers Iíve ever had. This one sets the bar. You canít taste the ABV but you sure can feel it. 2 of these and youíll probably be buzzing pretty good.

Poured from a 16oz can. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Flavors are citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, and orange peel. The nose on this beer alone is a hopheads dream. For this beer being as bitter as 120 ibus you would never know it, for a giant hop bomb this beer is dangerously drinkable. Touchť surly!

This is everything a DIPA should be. The hops really start out center stage as all IPAs should. Very fragrant citrus, not a whole lot of floral notes. The palate is filled with grapefruit and orange zest. Mouthfeel is very playful. The only thing I want more about this beer is its availability.

Canned sample from Blue Max Liquors Perfect colour, taste, carbonation, hops, citrus, etc... Would have given it a five but felt bad giving two in two weeks
