COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Kind of dry and sweet with a whiff of apricot to be had by the bold and fastidious.

Definitely a nice well-hopped up beer. Pours light orange with an initial head and medium lacing. Slightly cloudy. Nose is grapefruit and some resin. Notes of grapefruit up front, maybe some earthy notes in the middle with some sweet tomes. Finish is also big grapefruit bitterness. Well integrated. Tastes are light sweet and big bitter. Full, lmost sticky, body with lively carbonation. Solid.

Ericular (613) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Pours a hazy light orange with good head fading to a ring leaving excellent lacing. Aroma is juicy citrus, some pine and grapefruit. Taste is a short hit of juicy citrus, then into a heavier bitterness that pushes my limits of grapefruit, staying just on this side of the fence of enjoyability. Well done overall.

Pours a light gold with good head and lacing. Aroma is pine and grassy hops, with a good amount of caramel malts appearing later in the glass. Taste is a great pine bitterness, dominating the taste profile and living up to its West Coast hop aspirations. Finishes dry with a fruity, doughy, malty aftertaste that leaves you wanting more. Really good! 9+4+8+3+16=4.0

Had it out of a can, and it was deeelicious!! A subtle but firm aromatic hop taste with notes of citrus and pine. Pours a hazy orange hue with a good head and uneven lacing.

Casey very kindly brought this along, thanks Casey. Sat drinking this sat at home with Casey, Traci & Loz 08.07.13 Pours golden in fact it might be a little more edging towards straw coloured, slight haze and a white head. Good punchy bitterness, but this is tempered by a malty base. This is reasonabley bitter with a little grapefruit pithiness, but aligned with a good sweetness also, fruity, decent, IPA.

Pint can from stash brought back from last White Bear Lake trip. Poured to a Czech-pils glass displaying a clear, golden color, white, billowy, and persistent head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma started with a bit of sweetness, then piney, leafy, and fresh cone notes. The taste presented a pronounced hop bitterness that was very lingering, earthy, and quite dry. Also noted were some grapefruity citrus, mid-fruit, and supportive malt. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation to successfully carry the flavor notes. Never on the shelf! Always in the frig, or in mine, if I’m lucky! Please come back to IL. soon, Omar!
