My first Surly beer. The aroma is quite piney and resiny. Pours golden orange with a nice medium white head and great lacing. The taste is a nice balance of dry malt and hoppy pine flavors. A great IPA.

On tap @ Surly. Pours hazy medium golden with thin lacy white head. Aroma is bright juicy hops, pine and mango notes stand out. Taste is sweet light caramel malt, bitter but juicy hops, great citrus flavor. Did not have them side by side, but by recollection I liked this better than Furious or Todd.

Aroma of hops is obvious. Hazy with a color of straw. Very beautiful head with a nice lace. Hoppy flavor is very strong and covers the sweetness of malt.. But later you can tell the malty flavor, a sense of sweetness comes. Dry finish,carbonation is moderate.

Tropical fruits, light passion fruit, some floral hops, light pine. Clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Citrus fruits, more floral hops, grassy, turning quite bitter in the finish, lively carbonation. Decent IPA, quite bitter in the taste. Can at the brewery, Minneapolis.

The description for this beer is utterly retarded. But I guess that was the intention. Well played, Mr. Brewer. That said, this is a good IPA, and may say West Coast Style on the can, but it struggles in this style category to be outstanding. Smells nice, pours nice, tastes nice.

Dark amber in color, frothy head, fruity scent with a little pine. Easy palate yet bitter in taste.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 Pounder: Honeycomb, soil, caramel, pine needle nose, some ash. Hazy amber, medium yellow head. Honey and lemon, tea and lemongrass highlights. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice malt bill and tasty beer, but itís way more like the mythical east coast style IPA than west coast style.

On tap at the brewery. Yellow pour with a white head. Citrusy hop bouquet. Taste follows suit. Well balanced and easy sipping. Loads of caramel malts smoothness.

I thought this would be far more piney than it is, but its mostly citrus hops. Pours clear orange, thick wheat head, sweet bready base.

Tap at the source. Pours clear honey, white head. Aroma is citrus, mango, pineapple, dank. Really nice. Flavor is sweet tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Dank, but still sweet. A really classic West coast style ipa.
