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.

Wonderful light amber/copper pour with thick white head. Aromas of grapefruit and spruce. Nice malt flavor, touch of sweetness from the honey. Medium bodied , great dry finish, bitterness throughout. Overall, an outstanding IPA with the balance between hops and malts.

Pours orange amber with a small white head. Theres a lot of pine in the nose with some resin. The taste is hoppy with heavy bitterness, a light sweet malt backbone, and a long dry bitter finish. This one will definitely scorch the palate, but its pretty good.

Thanks to Baron for the can! Poured into a Heady Topper pint glass. Wow, you can smell the hops the second you crack the can. Lots of dank, grassy, pine-cone laden hops permeate the air around the glass. Sweet caramel malts and a touch of honey on the nose as well. Body is a vibrant cloudy orange with about a fingers worth of white, creamy, head. Leaves some nice lacing behind. Juicy grapefruit and bready malts on the tongue. Nice lingering hop bitterness. Piney with caramel. Delicious. Low, but adequate carbonation with some nice weight to the body. An excellent DIPA all around. Even better than remember it being the first time I had it. Highly recommended.
