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.

DandyWolfFloyd (1020) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
Aroma - pine, floral, and herbal hops over caramel. Appearance - the body starts as a clean amber body - and changes to a haze later. There is a very good nucleation. The head is 2+" and off-white. Solid lacing. Taste - has abundant pine, herbal, and floral hops well balanced over a caramel malt. Palate - medium body, oily feel, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish.

Old, stale, malty. Unfortunately, this was given to me a little late, but the remnants are there. I can still drink it, but it’s almost not a fair rating. I wonder what it’s like at 30 days and not 110?

Taste is solid, nice fruity hops, juicy citrus, more acidic grapefruit notes delicate on the palate with a nice lingering bitterness.
