Can. Pour is bright gold/copper with a decent white head, little retention/lace. Aroma of fresh hops: citrus, pine, floral, biscuit. Taste is moderately bitter, resin, citrus, plenty of malt sweetness. Palate is oily, creamy, bitter finish. Very nice.

Green 16oz. can. Fresh stuff. Pours an amber gold with a decent white head. Nose is piney hops, citrus and some malts. Big hop taste with balanced bitterness throughout. Sticky and sweet on the palate with a nice malty backbone. Easy finish. Outstanding stuff.

Thanks craftycarl21! Dark amber pour with a lively white head. The nose holds grassy herbals, nectar fruits, and lots of biscuity and bready malts. Lots of orange citrus in the flavor with dank fresh hop character, clementine, tangerine, and a bready malt profile. Medium palate with medium carbonation. Yummy!

16 oz. can. Clear copper pour, frothy white head; classic IPA appearance. Nose holds really excellent citric character, with notes of clementine, pink grapefruit, and lemon zest. Also decent biscuit malt presence and some grassy wheat profile shines through with the manageable alcohol not hiding too much. Wet hop profile really becomes more pronounced in the flavor and palate, with superb pungent grass, pine, and herbal bitterness. Citrus is still present, but not as dominant. The palate is medium bodied with great bitter dryness and easy to drink overall. Quite nice.

I’m just a sucker for any and all Surly, so this review probably shouldn’t count. From a can into a pint glass. Pours a dark orange and an immediate smack of citrus in the nose. You think they used Citra? Can was about 6 weeks old, so it probably dissipated a little, but still intense. Taste in bitter, piney and citrusy with a thick malt balance. The finish will linger on your palate for hours and you’ll miss it when it’s gone. Is the 2012 batch out yet....

Can @ Exira Beer Summit II, courtesy of bnielsen13. Thanks Brad! Clear light burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Very potent resiny, piney, orange citrusy hoppy aroma. Rich sweet, a touch toasty pale malty, citrusy, orange, piney hoppy flavor. Citrusy aftertaste.

Man, this stuff smells good. Seriously good. I could make a cologne out of this stuff. Anyway, this is all about the hops, obviously. And that’s fine with me. Thanks to grownfool for this one!
