It’s been said; "It’s 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. "Surly’s 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, it’s 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.

Can courtesy of aetheon. Pours a clear golden color. Thin white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is quite resinous and piney with a good bit of citrus. Taste is bitter, resinous, grapefruit-like hops. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. The finish has a nice dry lingering bitterness. Very very nice IPA!

16 oz can thanks to Rightcross55. 12/31/13 canning date. Pours hazy gold with a huge rocky head that fades very slowly and leaves chunky lacing. Aromas are pine, wet grass, light citrus, and light tropical fruit. Taste is just dry, bitter hops. Pine, citrus, flowers and grass. Very light malty sweetness in the dry finish. Mouthfeel is a bit foamy too, it’s a little over-carbonated. Not really my kind of IPA but still pretty solid.

chinchill (3116) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Poured from can with a large bone-colored head over a clear amber body. Excellent lacing. A surprisingly restrainted flavor follows a strong hoppy nose that has piney, herbal, weedy and grassy elements. The flavor is a bit metallic and dank. Feel: Medium body and carbonation.

kaser (4147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Loving surly back in Chicago. Poured from a can at sheffields. Clear orange with sticky white head. Fresh fruit basket smell. Light on the hops and bitterness but makes up for it with the citrus floral yumminess. Good

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 I got a can of this from icehawk. Thank you! Pretty textbook here and another solid offering from Surly. Murky gold with a small white head. Nice and hoppy but not massively so and very drinkable. Light grass, semi-creamy malt body, with pine, lemon, and pineapple. Dry finish. Moderate bitterness. Good beer. Lighter going down than Furious, if I recall correctly.

Can thanks to Sgt. B (Brian), not on ratebeer. Sampled on January 23, 2014.
Hazy honey golden color, fluffy white head. Sweet, hoppy, citrus scent. Sweet, hoppy, citrus, bitter taste. Bitter, resin aftertaste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness.
Smells lovely, a bit to the high side of the bitterness in taste for me though.
