3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 I got a can of this from icehawk. Thank you! Pretty textbook here and another solid offering from Surly. Murky gold with a small white head. Nice and hoppy but not massively so and very drinkable. Light grass, semi-creamy malt body, with pine, lemon, and pineapple. Dry finish. Moderate bitterness. Good beer. Lighter going down than Furious, if I recall correctly.

Can thanks to Sgt. B (Brian), not on ratebeer. Sampled on January 23, 2014.
Hazy honey golden color, fluffy white head. Sweet, hoppy, citrus scent. Sweet, hoppy, citrus, bitter taste. Bitter, resin aftertaste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness.
Smells lovely, a bit to the high side of the bitterness in taste for me though.

Can, thanks Chase! Nice fresh citrus and pine aroma. Relatively full mouthfeel, drinks a bit like a DIPA. Nice flavors with a very slight bitterness in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can and served in snifter: Pours a clean golden hue with a lasting frothy head and good lace. Nice juicy and dank notes on the nose along with some mineral and metallic undertones as well. Very dry almost tannic like finish sort of is off putting and knocks down the Palate score. Whiny, citric, and slightly hop spiced character. It is drinking good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated from a pint can. It poured a clear golden/orange with abundant effervescence, a frothy off white head, and quite a bit of lacing. Hoppy citrus aroma (lemon & grapefruit). Biting hop taste with a bitter finish on the tongue. A solid, enjoyable, west cost style IPA. Has become part of my main rotation now that it is available in Chicago.
