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.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, fine carbonation. Nice hops - rich floral orange and orange marmalade. Touches of lemon and grapefruit. Sweetish pine. Whisper of peach and hop spice. Finishes semi dry. Well integrated and very tasty.
