UPDATED: FEB 4, 2022 16 oz can. Smells of tropical fruit and citrus. Dark orange in color and hazy. Quite hoppy, a mixture of fruit and bitter hops hits the tongue. Fruit goes first followed by a lingering bitter kick. Finish starts with fruit and transfers to bitter pine. Booze is well hidden, nice! jake65 (4212) - Lewiston, Idaho, USA - JAN 29, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2022 Can from Brewer’s Haven, March 2021. Big time want list item from years ago.. a golden orange color with lots of sticky beige head. Pungent hoppy aroma with citrus and pine, tropical fruit. The old school DIPA hop flavors rock; sweet and bitter. Lots of hop resin and a lightly malty base. Probably mind blowing 10-12 years ago and still an outstanding beer today. tsd08460 (1977) - Reston, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2022

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2021 Probably not as good as a beer as it would have been if I'd had it 8 years ago. Orange and some grapefruit. Lime. Orange pour with good head. Bitter finish. Can. BierMeHoos (804) - Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2021
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2021 Picked up a four pack at the local shop, what a score! Appearance is hazy yellow with a medium white head that lasts. Aroma is tropical fruit and some dank hoppy notes. Taste follows the nose and is a complex mix of hop floral bitterness and tropical citrus with some dank in there too. Mouthfeel is good, fairly rich. Overall, delicious and smooth, definitely worth the price or effort to get it.
Mr.Spooks (4237) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2021 Big and brutal, but, as the description says, over-hopped. Starts with a lovely rush of grapefruit, orange marmalade, and melon, then gets an overripe peach current accented by wort and a slight vegetal funkiness. Grows wondrously bitter on the back end--I love the clingy, resinous pine--but the sweetness ramps up as well, leading to a heavy, unwanted spoiled fruit undercurrent. Good, but one pint is more than enough.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2021 From a can to a glass. Pours a clear amber copper color with a slight haze to it and a huge frothy creamy silky head. Aroma is Orange hops upfront , pine, grapefruit, mango, guava, earthy spice hops, cracker malts. Taste follows the aroma with a silky smooth medium mouthfeel. Very tasty double Ipa! stevoj (12766) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2021 16oz can from Brewers Haven. I didn't get the chance to hit Surly when I was in MN, so I'm glad we're finally seeing distro here. This one of the beers that put them on the map, and it's a throwback to the old days of in your face hoppiness. Dark golden pour with a lasting soft, foamy head. You can detect a hint of caramel malts in the aroma before the hops take over. Taste begins and ends with the hop bitterness, woody, piney, sharp. This what DIPAs used to taste like. Thanks for the memories. rajendra82 (1197) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2021 The beer pored clear, pale golden, and well carbonated; and formed a three finger thick head. The aroma was rather mild for the style and reminded most of ripe mangoes. The taste was an intense mix of tropical flavors of mango and guava, and a strong hop bitterness. The after taste was spicy and warm. Well done Surly.
