Can @ Richard’s tasting. Golden orange pour with a white head. Grassy aroma. Some orange peel, floral hops, sweet orange, and some candy. Rather sweet on the tongue. Candy/sugar sweetness, floral hops, some grass, and orange. Light bitterness on the finish. A little bit soapy, too.

Poured from a can. Nice gold color with thin off-white head. Strong aroma of citrus and resin. Starts bitter but has a bit of an almost apricot sweetness underneath. That’s quickly followed by a long, bitter finish. Very drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty beer when poured. Orange gold. Juicy, dank, resinous hop aroma and taste. Light bit of toasted malt is present in background. Very flavorful, good bitter finish and lingering fruity hop aftertaste. Fairly dry. A very good west coast ipa, wish it came in 6 packs rather than 4, but I’d have no qualms buy 8.

Can poured into the ipa glass. Nice orange-gold hue with an off-white head. Smells of dank hops with citrus fruits and sweet resin. Taste is on point! Plenty of gushing fruits and the typical hop bite with a slightly dry finish. If you’re a fan on the west coast ipa... you owe yourself the opportunity to try this one out. Cheers to Surly!

Sample at first sunday. A little band aid hop and yeast presence. Still aggressive with the hops especially in the aroma. Lots of grapefruit citrus. Would love a more diverse hop profile but not going to knock it too far. Still a nice drink.

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.

Bière orangée, voilée, au col de mousse mince et aéré. L’effervescence est modérée. Le nez présente des oranges juteuses (en appréhension), du citron et des fruits tropicaux. En bouche, un bel équilibre subsiste entre les saveurs fruitées des houblons et l’amertume. Easy going!

Can to glass. Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with a frothy light tan head. Aroma has that aluminum can character, with a touch of citrus. Flavor is wonderfully fruity, fleshy fruit hops. Very drinkable. Quite tasty. Thanks Drew!
