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.

500 ml can from levi. Thanks. Pours a translucent new penny copper color with a small white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is a bit subdued caramel, mild grains and some pine. The flavor is bitter hops forward with mild pine and grapefruit set in a caramel malt base. The palate is a bit uneven starting thin and building to a pasty conclusion and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and clean with a bit of lingering bitter hops. Overall: Not what I would call a west coast IPA, but its still quite good and I’d drink the shit out it if it was available here.

Can at Max’s. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Aroma is citra and malt. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of malt dominating any sort of hop flavor. Overall, way too malt-focused - especially considering the can was reasonably fresh.

Chipalsa (1309) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Thanks for the can OmegaX. This was a pretty solid IPA - lots of piney hops in the aroma followed by fresh, juicy hops in the taste. Undertones of bright citrus and a splash of malt make for a real palate cleanser and a smooth, hopped up brew.

OmegaX (1255) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2013
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!
