3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the ballpark, section 124, which I believe is the only place in the world to find this beer. Watching the Twins pound the Phillies in inter-league play tonight. Dark amber color and surprisingly well hopped with dry citrus. Flavor has on the dry side, with characteristic Surly yeast, malt, and more hops. A well hopped beer to serve at the ballpark, and it reminds me of Furious. Drinks pretty good, along with Cynic, this is probably the best beer available at Target field.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap.. Medium golden pour, average medium carbonation and a nice bitter hop aroma. Flavor is dry bitter hops, way less malt than Furious, pine, orange bitters and very dry on the finish. Really enjoyable, if given the choice between Furious and this, I would probably order this 9 time out of 10.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Target Field, watching the Twins get smashed on 4/24/2012. I got pretty Surly.
It pours a dark red/amber color. Minimal off-white head. The smell is straight up flowers. Some malt aromas, but very dry. Taste has some pine, some grapefruit, and a decent amount of caramelly malt. In many ways it reminds me of Furious, though the aroma is quite different. Itís a solid beer in itís own right.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 At Target Field on tap. Not bad, but really tastes like Furious. Tasty and worth the extra buck or so compared to other beer prices, but really nothing terribly special considering Surly is all over the city.

On tap at the ballpark section 124, pours an amber/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of herbal hop spice, citrus, and caramel malt. Taste has a nice balance of spicy hops, citrus, and caramel malt. Itíd say this is a more mellow version Furious with less of a hop bite but slightly more bitter. Still very nice and a bright spot on a dreary day and Twins loss to the Rangers.

Big floral and citrus hops but not so much the piney in this one. Furious has been my go-to beer for several years now. Tyler, the beer buyer, knows which cooler and the bright red cans Iím headed for when I come in the store, but I have to say that Iím thinking that this beer might supplant Furious if it were available canned and outside of Target field.
Iím making this assertion based on one glass this afternoon, my first baseball game of the summer, in a glorious, brilliant sun watching the Twins come back from a 6 run deficit to beat the Angels, but Iím thinking that the lighter and less assertively bitter qualities of this one could make it my favorite If I didnít have to invest $8.75 in a 20oz (?) pour on top of a game ticket.
Good beer. Well done Surly.
And, by the way, what IS the appropriate glassware for a beer available only in a ballpark? http://i.imgur.com/Y8XGI.jpg

Tap at the stadium. My girlfriend is giving me dirty looks. Itís good, but not as good as furious.
