Jesterdeal (1808) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at POPE for beer week. Aroma of bacon, pine, and pepper. Pours light amber with a small white lacing. Taste is campfire, beef jerky, chili peppers, and slight citrus. Smoky and spicy mouthfeel but not thick or sticky. Nicely executed just very weird.

PhillyCraft (3132) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Dumpster fire, dumpster baby....whatever you call it, this thing should have been aborted. Notes of adhesive bandaids, fire, smoked meat, char. Awful awful drink.

Christpuncher (993) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Like eating a piece of beef jerky. Super smokey and tastes like ham. It's like drinking and eating lunch at the same time. Not very bitter or hoppy. Had at 3 aces. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

artmcd8 (1523) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at 3 Aces. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of smoked bacon. Taste is slightly bitter with a mild heat after burn. Medium light body, high carb.

CJack (35) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Draft pour, hazy orange, thin head. Decent aroma is earthy with smoke. Hot smoked pepper up front and throughout, mild malt backbone, moderate hop mildness. Thin palate and mouthfeel, quick finish and spicy aftertaste. Very unique complex hot pepper IPA. ---Rated whilst imbibing

This is a delicious sour beer. The chili peppers give it an amazing kick without being too overpowering. Unfortunately they are out of it at Surly but hopefully it will be back soon!

Tap; Hazy amber/gold color; Medium body; Aroma of toasted/smoky malt, hops, & campfire; Flavor of smoky malt, pine hops, citrus, and chili peppers; Finish is slightly bitter and fairly hot; Overall, interesting & pretty decent.

DalzAle (1965) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Tap. Clear medium tan pour, nice slowly dissipating 1/2 inch head and a slightly malty & sweet aroma. Flavor is meaty, malty, with hints of chipotle peppers and faint hops on the aftertaste. More enjoyable than I thought it would be.

northropfrye (2142) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Just had a sample of this but I think I would have liked a bigger pour. Unique smoked IPA, of course it’s not too smokey, just subtle and a hit of chiles in the end. Unique and none of the "odd" elements are overdone.

This is pretty good. Smoky and woody aromas. Flavors are nice and hoppy with some smoky heat to finish it off. Not bad!
