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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Dry and bitter, a bit astringent and watery, not as carbonated as I?d like. Mild sweetness. A bit disappointing for a Surly.

This pours a copper color but has tons of floaters. Thin and slightly off-white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is nice...hoppy with hints of fresh cut grass, watermelon and citrus. Mouth feel is very watery. Almost no taste but a bit of tart bitterness. A bit of a dank basement flavor.

Can: Gold & burnt amber, hazy throughout & topped with a frothy, chunky, eggshell cap. Lightly bitter, grassy & floral aroma. Very clean, inviting, light, but refreshing. Small hints of mildly bitter citrus peel, melon, hint of white pepper. Taste is as clean & crisp as the smell would indicate. Hop leaves, freshly cut grass clippings with a mild weediness. Lightly peppered grapefruit rind, hints of peach, floral hops, & a zesty finish leaning towards some toasted biscuit & baked bready malt. A light but lovely session beer, I wish this was available to me all the time. One of the easiest drinking beers you’ll find.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
16 oz. can pours a hazy caramel/orange color with small white head but lots of lacing. Aroma has orange peel, apricot and toffee. Taste is as bitter as expected, with slight sweetness in the middle and a bit of mint in the bitter hoppy aftertaste. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Easier to drink than I thought it might be. A very good ESB

Can. Distinct toast and marmalade aromas. Pretty bitter for the style, but still definitely an ESB. Very tasty. I quite like this.

Pours a slightly hazy orange, small head, good lacing. Aroma was nice and light with some lemon, tang, grapefruit, mango, honey, and some peach. Taste mainly followed the nose. Awesome light brew with a nice fruity taste perfect for summertime. Light body, perfect amount of bitterness, and a smooth finish. Very good.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a humid Monday June night after work and a walk. Appearance is a very cloudy dark gold with a rich and frothy white head. Aroma of passion fruit, light wheat, light floral, decent. Taste goes down with moderate syrup and bitterness, definitely fruity. Overall good offering.
