COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach,orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.

Nice golden, colour with a really great creamy foamy white head that laces incredibly well. Aroma is lightly fruity, some oranges and apricot, some pepper as well. Mild caramel flavour, very easy to drink. Tough style to get high ratings on but its very expertly crafted beer.

I like this really light pale ale. Crushable and light n alcohol. Had out of a tall boy. Pours yellow and smells slightly hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (2494) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2014
I don't get the high reviews. Tastes more like a kolsch. Light golden color. Grassy and light. Earthy. I guess it would be good for drinking many of in the sun. Not the case now

A bit too high in hop bitterness to be a true English-style bitter, but otherwise, it is faithful to the style. I wish this was a year-round offering from Surly.

ryecatcher (719) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Can. Pours a medium burnt orange, off-white head with decent retention and lacing. Nose is mild citrus and malt, wet cardboard. Mouth is light and dry, soda crackers and mild grapefruit, florals, not much of a body. Good thirst quencher, but insanely overpriced for what it is. I’ll stick with the Furious. Waiting for the puck to drop on game 5... Let’s go Rangers!!

Apricot color. Fruity malt aroma. Taste - crackery English malt with some light fruity notes. Low bitterness, nice malt profile, light and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to SJ. Brew was good, but a bit thin. Nice notes of bitter hop, caramel malt and citrus fruit. Not bad at all.
