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.

Can. Light pepper, orange/apricot, and toffee malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet apricot malt and mildly bitter herbal orange peel flavor. Good.

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

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

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 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 (821) - 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.

From notes, consumed on 6/4/13. Can (dated 5/7/13) poured into a tulip. Pours a copper/golden honey brown with 2 and a half fingers of off-white head. Great lacing. Aromas of caramel, toffee, floral notes, grapefruit citrus, light honey. Tasting notes of wheat bread, floral notes, grapefruit citrus, light caramel and toffee. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Finhead (1213) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Hazy, burnt orange with a small, white head. The aroma is earthy with light fruit and some buttery popcorn. It has a light body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a slightly smooth finish. May have been a little old, but still not the best effort from Surly.
