COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís been said; "Itís 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. "Surlyís 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, itís 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.

Jethro6191 (422) - Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a very hazy light copper-orange color with a lot of particles in suspension. The wispy thin white head laces the glass. Citrus aroma. The flavor is balanced with sweet malt, orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, and resinous notes. Medium body and carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Finishes dry.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 27, 2014
A lightly copper tinted brass body when poured out of the can. The dense head is is a pale khaki. A bright citrus grapefruit nose is complemented with almonds and sweet marmalade. There is also an obvious caramel note. Flavors of grapefruit rinds and toasted almonds make for a fairly sweet beer. A nice toasted sweet bread taste is flavored throughout each drink with dominant citrus. This is pretty tasty.

Clear golden yellow in color... Aroma of rubber, earthy piney hops... Flavor is fairly dry and watery, not much sweetness, popcorn notes... Okay, kinda overrated ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
