COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Can from Zipps liquor. Pours orange with a thin white head. Slight Pine on the nose and tongue. Finishes clean. I donít know if this is overrated. I think itís perfectly rated.

Bottle cheers to Ranga Jackson. Pours hazy golden with a small, firm white head leaving great lacing and good head retention. Great looking beer and nose is great too - very tropical and fruit forward. Quite punchy with sweet pungent fruit notes. Taste shows dried fruits and some light pine but falls off the mark quickly unfortunately. A good beer with a good mouth feel but it just ends far too quickly on the palate. Nice enough stuff though

Yea Iím definitely a Fanboy of Surly...paid $7 for 1 can! And it was worth it! Hoppy, dry witha quick finish and super satisfying. Itís got a big nose and plenty of hops. Surly isnít overrated, they make great beer! Including this one!

jeremyh70 (666) - Missouri, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy bright orange gold color witha big white head of foam with great retention and lacing. A great looking beer. Aroma is one note with a sweet orange and grapefruit smell. Taste is quite bitter and resinous with a pithy orange and grapefruit flavor. Finishes dry with a lingering bitter that isnít too harsh. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily with a light/medium body and high carbonation. A little surprised Ethan this wasnít better coming from Surly. Good but not very nuanced.

pdx76 (602) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On draught at Oregon brewfest 2013 - pours out a clear golden color - definite nose of hops and spruce. Taste of hops and citrus. Leaves bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Conn Ave Liquor in DC. Thanks Al! Pours light honey golden, on the lighter side of the color scale for the style. Foam is not dense and scatters quickly along the surface to spotty islands of fizzy white. Aromas are faint of citrus and resin, but very faint. Almost no malt to speak of in the nose either. Taste is a step up! Hops forward with semi-dank resinous pine and citrus flavors, before a sweet-to-smooth mid-to-late palate, with a clean crisp finish. Not the greatest West Coast IPA by a long shot, but I will say that I REALLY like the way the citrus (and maybe some tropical?) fruit notes dominate this beer. Good stuff... damn, really good stuff

16 oz can purchased at Princetonís Liquors in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Canned on 7/2/13. The pour is a hazed golden copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is floral resin, leafy hops with some caramel malt. The taste is a nice balance between the resin floral and the lightly sweet caramel, cracker, malt. Quite fresh and tasty. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a dry resin mineral finish. Nice beer.
