COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure were abrasive. We were abrasive long before we were Surly. If you visit the brewery you can still see remnants of the industrial manufacturing factory Omars parents ran for 35 years within those same 4 walls. Bandsaw blades, grinding wheels, and sanding discs came long before ales and lagers. But lets be honest, this is a lot more fun. Pale in color, this over-hopped, under-brewed Double IPA has almost twice the amount of hops & malt crammed in the can. Seasonal between March and April.

16oz can. Pours a semi-translucent yellow gold with a lightly frothy white head; the head dissipates to about 3mm and leaves mildly sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma features an overall resinous quality marked by citrus/grapefruit notes and a touch of dank wood. The taste is quite bitter, with some of the resinous/dank qualities of the nose cutting through with just a touch of citrus and wood. The lingering aftertaste continues the overall resinous/dank theme, and the finish is somewhat dry. Lightly carbonated texture with a somewhat thick and oily mouthfeel... not boozy but definitely a sipper to be savored.

From notes (11/17/15). Big, bitter, malty. Yup, it lives up to its name. I thought it was a little too piney and assertively bitter to rival some of the great DIPAs, but it was cool to try.

Draught at Brus. Slight hazy orange amber with an off white head. Oranges, lychee and grapes with caramel and slight marmalade. Sweet citrussy taste with marmalade, lychee and grapefruit. Big bitterness. Quite full bodied, soft carb and oily sticky texture. Big, robust and quite good at that.

davidezdonz (405) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 5, 2016
A 16 fl oz can canned on 3rd December 2015 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a slightly less than three finger off white head that had good retention and left nice lacing. Aromas were a strong mix of tropical and citrus fruit with mango, pineapple, orange, grapefruit and pine. Tastes lightly sweet, candied orange, pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit pith and pine. Theres some interesting caramel and light spiciness mixed in on the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall a very nice DIPA with a good tropical and citrus punch and just a touch of sweetness which is nice. I would love to be able to try a fresher can.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2016
Aroma - caramel, spruce, resin, floral, and vegetal. Appearance - the body is a cloudy amber, with good nucleation. The head is white and 2+", and hangs tight. Dappled lacing. Taste - has a caramel malt. The hops are strong spruce, pungent, floral, and a vegetal nature that could include basil and sage. Palate - medium body, texture is not oily, the carbonation is average, the finish has a some bitterness, but definitely not abrasive - nice balance.
