Enjoyed courtesy of BK... Slightly past it's prime in freshness, color was reddish orange... Aroma of caramel malts, light citrus hops... Flavor is malt forward, caramel and toffee with notes of citrus hops on the palate... Dries out a bit on the finish but overall pretty malty and sweet... Tropical notes, solid ipa

Can. Aroma is a mix of hops and malt. Taste is a little cat pissy, bit of pine, slight sweetness. Decent IPA, but not my favorite.

Pint on tap at Bad Apple in Chicago. It's exciting to see Surly back in town. Amber appearance, moderate amount of foam and lacing. Hoppy, grass and pine aroma. Taste is all of the above with a solid caramel and malt backbone to balance things out. It's also not as bitter as I had thought it would be, given the 99 ibu's. Medium bodied and smooth, mild carbonation. Overall it's a fine ipa and definitely worth a try, but it isn't as much of a jaw dropper as I had hoped.
