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.

From a 16 oz can shared at home. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavors of citrus with hints of pine and a pinch of salt. Bitter finish.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Thanks to Bob for the can! Poured brilliant golden with a tall, dense, creamy white head. The aroma picked up juicy tropical fruits and grassy hoppage over a simple, sweet caramel base.. no complaints. The flavor found semi-sweet pale, caramel, and biscuity malts at the core with fresh orange, grassy, and lesser floral bitterness around.. finished bitter, but balanced, leaning toward the tropical and grassy hops. Medium-bodied and quite bitter on the palate.. well-balanced and mighty tasty.

bottle share at BW - pre-hill farmstead 3rd anniversary. hazy pale yellow with a low white head, minimal retention. almost fresh citrus, lightly boozy, herbal, some pepper, disturbing apple juice. average to soft carbonation, light body, nice citrusy finish. good balance. all in all... it does seem to fall short.. at least to my expectations.

Scipio (719) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is potent and clean. Lots of fruity citrus, including mango, pineapple, hints of lime and grapefruit. Underneath I find caramel. There is some pine in here that is balanced well with the fruitiness. The taste is an explosion of pine and hops. Much of the citrus impressions are no longer found, which will be just fine for some. The pine and hops just overpower any other taste. Its very dry with an excellent hoppy kick. Not surprisingly, this is the aftertaste as well, and lingers on your palate. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation in here. This is one extreme IPA, and pretty much what Iím looking for in this style. My only regret is that it isnít available in my part of the world. So the novelty factor is pretty high with this one.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pine dank dough and caramel on the nose, hints of vanilla, and light citrus as well. Pours golden amber, slight off white head and lace. Flavors of caramel and dough up front followed by pine and dank, slight citrus, earthy wood notes. Lingering sweet doughiness. Smooth but seemingly malt forward.

Can. Shared by Oís, thanks! Golden with a medium white head and some lacing. Aroma is of pine and citrus, but thereís also a lot of malt/caramel, too much for a West Coast Style IPA. Taste is about the same aroma and with the same problem of malt/caramel being too present. Medium body. Slightly dry. From what Iíve been told, the can was fresh so thereís no reason for such a malt presence. This beer is good, but might be overrated...

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013

bluemooner (639) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is a lot of piney, floral hops with some malt. Flavor is firstly pine resin with floral hoppy notes and some caramel malt. Medium body with medium carbonation and a bitter finish. Very good IPA.
