COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure we’re abrasive. We were abrasive long before we were Surly. If you visit the brewery you can still see remnants of the industrial manufacturing factory Omar’s parents ran for 35 years within those same 4 walls. Bandsaw blades, grinding wheels, and sanding discs came long before ales and lagers. But let’s 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.

Can from Guerde. Thanks guy! Depending how it’s held, it poured amber, copper or ruddy copper. The head was substantial and foamy. The hop aroma could anesthetize a pachyderm. The flavor starts resin, goes floral and permits a little malt to seep out. The finish is harshly, scratch that, abrasively bitter. Damn it’s good.

from a 16 oz. can and poured into my gold rimmed snifter. picked up for me in the TC by a friend. I’m a sucker for hoppy beers, so was thrilled to have a chance to try this one. citrus aroma, but nothing overpowering. pours a honey gold with spotty lace. a sweet caramel backbone with "some" hop bitterness. a solid and enjoyable beer, but does not quite live up to its name.

16oz can acquired through trade with matSciGuy, thanks Levi! Poured into standard pint glass. Poured a rich golden color with a small white head. Aroma of hops hops and more hops, very piny. Taste of sweet caramel malts with a robust hoppy finish on the pallet. Best IPA out of a can I have had thus far.

Canned sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pale orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of grainy pale malts, and oily and citrusy C-hops. Fairly assertive malt and oat flavors mix with the strong grapefrut, tangerine, and pine resin notes. A hoppy beer, but not overly bitter, especially for a IIPA. Softer in the mouth than expected. Good overall, but I prefer Furious.

16 oz can. Clear copper with a foamy white head. Nose is pine, pineapple, pine cones and brown sugar. Slick, medium body with a buzz. Taste is caramelized grapefruit, tangerine peel and toffee. Finishes resiny with bitter pine and spearmint.

boamr (310) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Can thanks to mashmaster. Pours a orange color with a thin white head. Has strong smell of tangerine. Has a citrus taste and is very oily. Doesn’t have nearly as much of a bitter after taste as I thought it would.

StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2010
On tap at SmallBar. Pours a crisp golden clean clear orange color. Nice creamy head that disappears into a thin off white ring. Head forms quickly when agitated in glass. Head clings to glass like soap. Sweet citrus aromas with some pine. Hoppy but well balanced with sweet malt character and apricot notes. Full bodied and very drinkable. Alcohol well hidden. Refreshing. Good job on this one.

Orange-gold pour with a white head. Big citrus, melon and pine aroma with some sweet toffee and biscuit, a hint of floral character. Grapefruit, bubblegum, melon, honey and pine flavor with some sticky sweet caramel. Oily, medium-full body with moderate carbonation.
