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.

Can. Pours out a nice mostly clear copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of citrus peel, some floral notes, light tropical notes, some doughy bread and light biscuit. Taste is solid, nice fruity hops, juicy citrus, more acidic grapefruit notes delicate on the palate with a nice lingering bitterness.

Bill Becker (822) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Pours a clear medium gold with a firm and slow shrinking head of foam. Notes of grapefruit and pine with a very wee bit of bread in the smell. So hoppy with nare a sign of any malt. Plenty of grapefruit some pine yet, to me, mild but ample bitterness. Nice mouthfeel and great drinkability. A treat.

From 16oz can, gift from friend, poured into 16oz tulip

Aroma: citrus, pine, floral

Appearance: golden, slight haze, big frothy off-white head

Taste: light sweet, heavy bitter

Palate: medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter dry finish

Overall: An exceptional hoppy Extra-IPA. A little lacking on the body and complexity, but in the same vein as other DIPA hop bombs. Nice American hops with citrus and pine. Nice bitter and dry finish. It’s great for a hop bomb IPA, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Many thanks to ThirstyBird for this can! Nice floral nose. The beer starts floral with malty hints. Quite neutral bitter with not too much floralness there. The intense resin bitter aroma dominates the picture, the floral level is low, but it is easy to drink. Bitter-fresh and a bit neutral-malty ending. I miss floral fresh hops or other nice aroma. This one is surely over rated!
