Itís been said; "Itís easier to brew an extremely hoppy beer than an extremely balanced beer." And you know us, we are always looking for the easy way out, so we jumped on the West Coast IPA bandwagon and brewed this dry and hoppy ale. "Surlyís a little bit of a one-trick pony, they just brew gimmick beers," and maybe we are OVERRATED, but at the end of the day, itís just a beer. If you like it, great, so do we. If you only liked us when we were small, then leave this one on the shelf. Let one of the fanboys grab it.

16 oz. can purchased at Binnyís, Lincoln Park location with a canning date of 11/13/13. Orange color with fast drying head in a snifter. The nose is mostly pine and traces of herbal hops. Large amount of pale malts balance the pine, citrus and herbal hops. Flavor has more malt then hops. Iím sure the hops are dying in this can or Surly named this IPA correctly. Clever name that kind of lives up to the beer itself. The weakest offering Iíve sampled from this top notch brewery.

Golden color. Super hoppy, with a mix of pine and citrus, with grapefruit and orange peel pith. Not much malt to speak of, and thatís OK by me. A one trick pony, but it sure is a nice trick.

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth resin and citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew

Bright honey-gold. Citrus-pine aroma. Taste - clean grapefruity hops dominate. Medium bodied crackery malt backbone. Faint fruity notes too. This is a well-balanced, refreshing, and easy-drinking IPA. Lacks the depth of the great ones but this is very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

juicyhops (48) - Grayslake, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pint can. Delicious west coast IPA. Smells like a handful of fresh hops. Golden with a delicate white head. Citrus hop flavors dominate in a silky smooth body. The best Iíve had from this brewery.

16 oz can shared with the group. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice West coast hop character, fruity, decent malt presence, finishes more malty than hoppy.

Overrated, not. Chris and Jesse at the Lincoln Wine Bar shared this. Itís really a more balanced version of Furious. All the same grapefruit and pine but a bit smoother edge. I like it.

Hazy golden orange pour with a white head and thin white head and sticky striped lacing ... aroma is of citrusy pine, floral hops and grapefruity .... taste is very bitter and floral with a nice citrusy resiny grapefruity dry hop flavor .... finish is bitter dry resiny with a lingering bitter spicy hop bite .... .definitely a solid west coast interpretation and sessionable
