3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Too hoppy for me! I want to like this beer and keep buying it but I just can’t seem to get through all sixteen ounces without hop overload. Definitely does better with food. I tend to enjoy an IPA but this one, as well-made as it is, is decidedly at the upper end of the hop spectrum and not to my tastes. Kudos to Surly, however, for unabashedly making it. The can’s graphics, however, are kind of strange: "Anyone want a sip of my Rockstar?"

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Nose is red fruits, red berries, grass, peaches and hints of pears, nuts and caramel. Lovely. Taste is grass, hay, herbs, red fruits, pears and hints of resin and grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Refreshing and nice IPA.

On tap at Stone. Clear Amber pour with an off white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Tasty grapefruit Hoo notes dominate. A sturdy caramel malt backbone gives balance. Good body and mouthfeel.

@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-11-8: ganska maltig, liten humleton. Känns gammal.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 16oz. can. Pours a deep hazy copper color with a nice thin head. Aroma is Hops and more hops. A nice malt taste, but the Hops come through. Strong finish. A great IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap in Chicago. Clean copper-amber with tan head. Lacing all the way down. Super fresh aroma of warm orange and caramel malts. Pine and grass shine, especially on warning. Medium body. American hops squarely in the driver seat. Big, harsh flavors. Bitter throughout. And yet, despite the intensity, drinkable. Pleasant depth of flavor: malts are bready and citrus discuss open on warming. Toys the line of being a bitter bomb, but never loses the plot. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice deep amber with a respectable light cream head. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma. Good malt base without being too sweet, but bitterness overwhelms. Hops are thick and last beyond the finish. Gotta be in a hop mood for this one.

16oz can pours a pale brown color with a bit of head. Medium hop bitterness that lingers after. The hops are really easy going, with no sharp flavors.

Fat på mikkeller and friends - bärnstens färgad och klar. Skummet försvann snabbt . Mycket malt i aromen. Smygande beska inte så mycket mer smak än det.

En bra IPA, inte mer. Lite dov i aromen. Bra beska som hänger kar rätt länge.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber with off white head - Fruity hop aroma - Good malt to support a good hop profile with a nice bitterness - Hops goes into the finish with bitterness - This was good
