NIce looking beer, wonderful golden color with a big frothy head. I love surly but this beer just doesn’t do it for me like the others. smells like a tropical wonderland but taste like a one dimensional fuck. Alcohol is high but somewhat blended. A little grapefruit in there but not much. Expected more from my boys at Surly. Still very nice though teddybeer (4120) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2012
[Thanks to MatSciGuy]. 16fl. can. Orangish colour with a good initial formation of off-white head, with an average lasting. Aroma is fruity, orange peel is present; strong hoppy. Flavour has bittery hints at the beginning, pine and orange traces are present, also it has resin hints. The final is really good with an excellent bitterness with a good persistence and duration in the aftertaste. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium to high. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 From a can. Solid lacing. Earthy, piney aroma with citrus notes. Thick mouthfeel. Earthy flavors.
Update - 2013 version - Pour a lightly cloudy gold. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, sweaty jockstrap, onion and garlic. Real fresh hoppiness, very dank. Delicious

Can. Split with and courtesy of Tom. Pours a honey orange with a fat fluffed white head and some spotted sea-foam lacing. Aroma is so unqiue; oniony, fresh pine, bitter blood orange, and some insane peanut brittle. Medium bodied with a chewy, thick, yet soft palate. Flavors run along the hop profile line with some savory, oniony, and subtle earthy peanut butter flavors. I know it sounds odd, but it all works so well. Trust me. This is one hell of an IPA. patmycan (8) - South Dakota, USA - MAR 15, 2012 does not count
Aroma is tons of piney, resinous, and citrus hops - notably grapefruit. Pour is a deep orange with a good sized foamy head. Lots of lacing. Seems to be a perfect amount of carbonation. Taste is no surprise with piney hops and citrus. Finishers with sweet biscuity malt back, before the bitter hop finish
One of my favorite DIPAs. There is a whole lot going on here I probably didn’t do justice to.

Poured from can, golden amber with a very hoppy aroma. Me like! Very well balanced with a nice, full presence on the tongue. readbaron (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 Nose is all bitter, piney, resinous, dank hops. Definitely abrasive. Pours out a deep orange with slightly off white fluffy white foam. Excellent lacing. Taste picks up where the nose leaves off. A blast of piney hops, hints of citrus, a touch of honey malt, then finishes bitter. Palate is quite nice - creamy and crisp. Excellent DIPA. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Draft at Churchkey. Amber colored, with a medium sized white head. Aroma was hops, heavy on the hops. Dank. Resin notes in the flavor, with a great hop character, heavy on the malts. Pretty good, but alcohol was a bit much for my palate. oteyj (2138) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Deep amber pour with a great white head. Cheesy hop dankness, apricot, garlic, and all incarnations of nectar and stone fruit. Big scallion and sweet onion with dank herbal notes and resins nectar. Thick palate with tannic hints in the finish. 48FanInCali (857) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Tallboy can. Ice cold. Opaque orangish pour with nice white head. Decent cling left on the glass. Nose bursts with floral hops and citrus. Taste follows with a big kick of hops and and a decent malt backbone. Love it.
