Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy white lacing head. Aroma of fresh American hops. Lots of orange zest, tropical fruits and floral character. Flavor of fresh American hops. Touch of biscuity malt. Smooth bitterness. Floral, citrusy and piney! Not quite Topper but might be as close as you can get from another canned IPA.

Dåse: Orange uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er malt og en smule gammel humle, kan godt smage den ikke er helt frisk. Men stadig er smagen overordentlig frisk med masser af humlebid. Citrus er den dominerende karakteristika. Ville gerne have smagt denne øl helt frisk.

Can picked up at Mikkeller & Friends for 75DKK shared with KyotoLefty. A lovely clear copper color, a great hoppy fruity herbal aroma. The taste is clear bitter hoppiness with a good dankness. Very nice.

Aroma is grassy. Flavors are grassy, pine and herbal
Decent, but not really hoppy. Yep, the name overrated, this is good but it’s no west coast IPA.

16 oz can poured into a pint glass. Light copper color and incredible lacing pair to make this one of Surly’s best looking beers. Tastes hits you with hops as expected. It’s a Surly after all. Definitely presents a full mouthfeel that lingers. In the end, slightly one dimensional which prevents it from scoring higher.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 16 oz Can. The beer pours to a medium copper color with a medium white head. The aroma has a very strong citrus, floral hops & a little pine notes to it. The taste is light in body with a strong bitter finish. Overall a very good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is very west coast, big on Amarillo and citrus. Big lemon in the flavor backed up by a firm malty backbone. Orange juicy hops. Long, lingering bitter finish. Not Overrated at all.
