COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Casey very kindly brought this along, thanks Casey. Sat drinking this sat at home with Casey, Traci & Loz 08.07.13 Pours golden in fact it might be a little more edging towards straw coloured, slight haze and a white head. Good punchy bitterness, but this is tempered by a malty base. This is reasonabley bitter with a little grapefruit pithiness, but aligned with a good sweetness also, fruity, decent, IPA.

From can, courtesy of Mike. Very nice floral hop aroma, piney, grassy, sharp. Light tropical fruit. Medium orange-amber clear with haze, topped with rocky-foamy white lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately dry with light malt sweetness and huge hop flavors throughout, piney resin, light tropical fruit, and ozone. Big bitter finish, not harsh, with lingering bitter after and light sugar sweetness.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Can 50cl, via trade, thanks Bacterial. Orangée, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme au bon bouquet houblonné alternant notes fruitées et tropicales avec un très bon résineux rappelant le Chinook et Simcoe. Palais est malté pâle, Munich, pointe de pils avec un léger cara. Houblonné agréable sans pour cela être une révélation. Note légère résineuse, amer avec une belle profondeur des agrumes. Pointe de pin et un rappel d’orange confite.

Big off white head, juicy sweet tropical citrus on the nose. Taste is smooth yet creamy and sticky tropicals. Nice dry finish.

Just a great IPA from Surly. Everyone is all about the Surly Furious and for good reason. However, I would take this beer over Furious any time. First time I had it was on tap straight from the brewery. I was extremely happy with my selection. I don’t get it often, but it is difficult to resist when I see it on tap!

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
500 ml can. Pours a clear golden straw with a resilient white head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrusy and grapefruity. Flavor is fruity as hell. Tropical fruits, and some grains. Finish is highly hoppy, tons of grapefruit. Bitterness and fruitiness are very long-lasting and pleasant. Medium to thick body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Most excellent.

Tide (1876) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller & Friends. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, resin, mango and pine. Bitter finish with hops, resin, mango and pine. Excellent IPA.

MSBrindbergs (425) - Solna, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Fat på Mikkeller Bar. Dimmig gyllene vätska, skummet försvinner hyfsat fort. Doftar karamelligt med en fruktig ton. Välbalanserad maltig öl men med ett fint humlelock. Påminner om Dales pale ale tycker jag. Gott! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-11-8: lite maltig ton, aningen torr och lite smak av källare. Nja. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

kathouse (1105) - Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Medium amber with a disappearing foam. Big citrus and pine aroma. Flavor is the same. Dripping with hop resin start to finish. Maybe a little too off balance but still fun to drink.

Bule (857) - California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
16oz bottle pours a yellow amber a bit of frothy head. Mild easy going hop flavors. A little musty and sometimes salty in the hops.
