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.

Kind of dry and sweet with a whiff of apricot to be had by the bold and fastidious.

Poured from a can. Didn't get much from the aroma - a little pine and citrus. Poured hazy golden with a full frothy white head Initial bitterness lingered during the entire experience. Very easy to drink with a short finish.

greenhorn1 (832) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
On draft. Ok, maybe I got a bad pour but this was not good, very overrated, and not a true West Coast IPA. It had some citrus notes and a bitter finish, but something strange about this beer. I know this will sound crazy, but it almost had a taste of mild haberno spice, I know crazy right? Not that good.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bedni (230) - POLAND - JAN 10, 2015
sensational aroma, never met in Poland this kind of smell great exotic fruits color light yellow, too low bitterness imo, and body is to heavy I guess, nice white foam. it’s a bit overrated

Habanero (2811) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2015
Tap. Clear golden body with an average, off-white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, caramel and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice IPA.
