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.

Big tropical fruit aroma, pours a nearly clear amber with a full white head. The tropical fruit notes continue into the flavor, with a bit of earthiness there to help them out. Theres just a bit of sweetness from the malt, and then more hop notes come through. Theres a full body, and a slick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a fantastic IIPA.

Aroma is nice, citrus, pine, tropical fruit, not juicy but not malty. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, hazy. Taste is citrus, pine, floral, tropical fruit, slight wheat. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, dank pine citrus aftertaste. Overall, very very solid.

Can from Secret Santa Summer 10. Pours an orange-amber color with a thick khacki head. Thin layer of retention, spotty lacing. The aroma shows orange peel, tangerine, citrusy hops, and some underlying caramel and resin. This has a creamy toffee/dough malty backing to the flavor with plenty of citrus hops, tea-like notes and a little resin. Quite a bit of tropical fruit adds plenty of sweetness with bitterness showing in the finish to counter that. Pretty good. A little heavy on the malt for my liking within the style but it doesnt prevent this from being rather tasty.

Finhead (1713) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2010
A hazy, orange-brown pour with white head. The aroma has a lot of pine, but also a hint of caramel. The medium body has a creamy texture with average carbonation. The taste is bitter on sides and back of the tongue, but on top it stays semi-sweet.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
Can. Pours medium orange/amber. Thin off-white head, solid lacing. Nose is big hops, sweet honey malt, bergamot tea, spicy hop notes are apparent as it warms. Flavors are broad and spicy, rather tea-like, plus orange, grapefruit, pine. More an American Strong than an IIPA.

Tap @ Maproom. Pours orange with a white head. Awesome hoppy aroma, with heavy grapefruit and a little bit of pine. Great bitter flavor, hops dominate just the way I like it. Grapefruit and other citrus flavors. Oily mouthfeel. Awesome stuff, glad to finally grab a pint.

Can that pours gold. Big huge citrus aroma that just explodes when drank. This is huge full flavored beer that goes down damn easy for 9%. Need more of these.

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

Growler shared by Taverner, pours deep amber with a finger thick cream colored head that leaves some nice lacing. Floral and grassy nose with decent caramel sweetness. Flavor is grassy and pine with caramel and a dry, spicy finish.
