Tap while visiting Minneapolis in October. Pours a golden with medium sudsy white foam head. Aroma is citrus, slight dank and what I just think of as being "fresh hopped" smell. Taste is very resinous with grapefruit and loads more fresh hops here. Loved this beer more than the 2011 version.

Type: 16-oz. can Glass: Hardwood Artisans pint glass From: My cousin Sam Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received Nov. 6, 2015 Consumed: Nov. 6, 2015 Misc.: Canned on Sept. 29, 2015 Thanks Sam! Poured a honey, hazy color with two fingers of off-white, frothy head. Some bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average spotty foamy spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention. (Sight - 3.75) Smelled underwhelming hints of lime, pine, Citrus zest, soap, caramel, spicy Simcoe late and some tropical notes. Really not as potent as I would have thought. Reminded me of Surge soda and maybe even some Mountain Dew. (Smell - 3.25) Tasted better than the nose and different than maybe anything I’ve had before. Got those citrus notes - lime, pine, lemon zest, soap and Surge soda - up front. Also tropical, pineapple, herbal, grass, some tartness, floral and light tangerine rind. Clean and crisp, with the alcohol well hidden (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Oily, sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.25) This beer really grew on me as it went down. Thankful for Sam hooking me up as always. (Taste - 4.00) 3.83 86 B+

Can thanks to Bursprak. Pours llmost clear golden with a white head. Aroma of herby hops, some plenty notes and some pine. Also some citrus notes as well. The taste is herby, plenty and has notes of dry pine. Also some grassy notes and some citrus. Okay, but pretty one-sided in some areas.

Clear golden, light off white head. The nose is light fruity with spicy hops similar to a hoppy pilsner. A little flowery sesnsation too. Taste : full hoppy flavours, some fruity, some light dank notes with a good lightly malty body. Full mouthfeel. A nice, only slightly bitter aftertaste.

16oz can poured at home. Canning date 9/28. Nice crisp mouthfeel. A very good wet hopped beer - the price is a bit steep though.

tmoreau (3145) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2015
16 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a lightly hazed, golden hue, with a frothy layer of soft white head foam, and curtainy/sheet-like spray as lacing. The nose was lightly dank, then slightly sweet, with citrus as grapefruit & orange, touches of pit fruit, melon & berries, and some subtle pine scent. The taste was a nice "IPA balance" of the aroma notes, in a medium body, with decent carbonation, and moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness that lingered. Liked it a lot more than my previous encounter with the combo of hops in the 2009 & 2010 version. Fresh & flavorful. Almost worth the pricey, "across the bar" cost, but glad to see some Surly back in IL..

Can: The aroma consists of mild citrus, tropical fruits, and a hint of dank notes. It’s a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze. It has a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker. The finish has moderate citrus with a hint of fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit with a hint of dank notes. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation

Poured from a can dated 09/30/2015. Aroma is rather herbal with a nice wet hop character. Moderate grapefruit and pine resin notes. Some light cracker and caramel malt notes. A little more citrus as it warms. Pours a hazy, dull orange color with a medium sized, moderately thick, white head that exhibits good retention as it recedes. Medium light lacing and small legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with some cracker and medium light caramel notes lingering in the finish. Moderate bitterness. Medium hop notes, a but herbal and leafy. Some grapefruit and resin, but neither as pronounced as in the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent wet hop beer but also nothing super special. Nice hop notes, a bit too sweet with too much caramel malt for me.

Yet another thanks to dr. Hoprider. Pour a clear golden, with a small white head. aroma has a nice prominent malty back bone, with plenty of of grassy hops. Faint fruity hoppy notes, bit is mostly floral and grassy. Taste has very faint sweetness up front, but really is mostly bitter. Medium body, with a very nice sparkeling carb.
