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.

Nice brew. Nose is big hops. Grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, light honey, and caramel. Flavor is similar. Big bitter finish with a good amount of caramel and what I imagine roasted grapefruit would taste like. Cool!

PotjeBier (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2013
16 oz can from De Bierkoning. Clear golden to orange color. Uneven, off white head with good retention & lacing. Aroma’s: piney hops, some malty sweetness. Retronasal there’s some earthiness, but also bready malts, slightly roasted even. Flavor is rather bitter, slightly fruity. Mouthfeel is a bit thin (for the 7.3% ABV that it has). Finish is still bitter, a bit roasted, a bit herbal. Not the best IPA ever, but definitely decent.
