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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can dated 6/3/14 poured into a pint glass.
Appearance-The beer pours a somewhat hazy apricot with a finger of off white head that slowly shrinks and leaves plenty of lacing.
Aroma-Sharp pine aromas mix with tropical fruit. Oranges, apricots, and sweet caramel meld together nicely.
Taste-Pine resin hits the tongue immediately. It is joined by a orange, greapefruit, mix that finishes with a nice, somewhat sweet caramel malt.
Palate-The beer is juicy up front and fairly dry in the finish. Almost perfectly executed for the style.
Overall-Very good west coast style IPA. Not the best in the style, but damn close. Find it and buy it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned 03/03/14 . Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. The aroma just punch you in the face with citrusy tropical hops right away! More specifically I get orange, peach, mandarin, weak pineapple, weak floral and pine-needles. Taste of clean citrusy hops. Notes of orange, mandarin, peach, pine-needles, weak malts is present and weak herbal. This is indeed very good BUT FREAKING OVERRATED YALL!!!!

On can. Canned 03/03/2014. Hard to get them fresher outside the states, FYI.. Pours slightly hazy yellow-amber with a frothy, white head. Aroma is very floral and fruity with pineapple, pear, peach and so on. Taste is more bitter, and has a slightly high, sweet malt presence (fuck malt). Very grassy. Dry and pine. Sharp and fucking overrated ipa.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big punch of citrus and pine hops to start with, Pours a nice amber with a slight haze, and a tight white head. If youíre not a hop head, back away from this one. Itís a big hoppy beast, with moderate body, and a long lingering bitter finish. Itís missing the slick mouthfeel that can come with lots of hop use, but itís a damn fine beer.

With Zach and Brandon, pours a hazy dark golden orange pour witha very small head. Nose is more pine and resin than real citrus. Taste is citrus however with even bitterness, hoppiness and resin and pine. Finish is bitter and moderately long, very drinkable. quaff score 7 / 10
