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.

Jethro6191 (506) - 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.

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.

DandyWolfFloyd (994) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
Aroma - pine, floral, and herbal hops over caramel. Appearance - the body starts as a clean amber body - and changes to a haze later. There is a very good nucleation. The head is 2+" and off-white. Solid lacing. Taste - has abundant pine, herbal, and floral hops well balanced over a caramel malt. Palate - medium body, oily feel, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish.

Old, stale, malty. Unfortunately, this was given to me a little late, but the remnants are there. I can still drink it, but it’s almost not a fair rating. I wonder what it’s like at 30 days and not 110?
