3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can purchased at Connecticut St Liquors in Washington DC July 2013 sampled august 2013.
I was looking forward to having this one. Pours lightly hazy orange with a small fizzy white head that remained around the rim of the glass. nose is very citric, total west coast worship here-pine, grapefruit, lite tropical notes, catty, cheese. flavors are a bit more lite than i was expecting, mostly floral and tropical notes with a touch of grapefruit. The beer is almost 2 months old so i bet fresh, it was even better. this is the beer i was expecting with their Furious. There is some lite metallic notes long into the finish with touches of grapefruit, resin and pine. Not a bad IPA by any means. I would love to have it fresh on tap!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle cheers to Ranga Jackson. Pours hazy golden with a small, firm white head leaving great lacing and good head retention. Great looking beer and nose is great too - very tropical and fruit forward. Quite punchy with sweet pungent fruit notes. Taste shows dried fruits and some light pine but falls off the mark quickly unfortunately. A good beer with a good mouth feel but it just ends far too quickly on the palate. Nice enough stuff though

Yea Iím definitely a Fanboy of Surly...paid $7 for 1 can! And it was worth it! Hoppy, dry witha quick finish and super satisfying. Itís got a big nose and plenty of hops. Surly isnít overrated, they make great beer! Including this one!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy bright orange gold color witha big white head of foam with great retention and lacing. A great looking beer. Aroma is one note with a sweet orange and grapefruit smell. Taste is quite bitter and resinous with a pithy orange and grapefruit flavor. Finishes dry with a lingering bitter that isnít too harsh. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily with a light/medium body and high carbonation. A little surprised Ethan this wasnít better coming from Surly. Good but not very nuanced.

On draught at Oregon brewfest 2013 - pours out a clear golden color - definite nose of hops and spruce. Taste of hops and citrus. Leaves bitter aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can from Conn Ave Liquor in DC. Thanks Al! Pours light honey golden, on the lighter side of the color scale for the style. Foam is not dense and scatters quickly along the surface to spotty islands of fizzy white. Aromas are faint of citrus and resin, but very faint. Almost no malt to speak of in the nose either. Taste is a step up! Hops forward with semi-dank resinous pine and citrus flavors, before a sweet-to-smooth mid-to-late palate, with a clean crisp finish. Not the greatest West Coast IPA by a long shot, but I will say that I REALLY like the way the citrus (and maybe some tropical?) fruit notes dominate this beer. Good stuff... damn, really good stuff

16 oz can purchased at Princetonís Liquors in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Canned on 7/2/13. The pour is a hazed golden copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is floral resin, leafy hops with some caramel malt. The taste is a nice balance between the resin floral and the lightly sweet caramel, cracker, malt. Quite fresh and tasty. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a dry resin mineral finish. Nice beer.
