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.

Dogbrick (13168) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Can from Andy’s Liquor in Rochester, MN. The beer is a copper-orange color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and tropical fruits. Medium bodied and moderately bitter with a citrusy hops character as well as flavors of toasted malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Good all around.

crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2011
473ml can. Canned on 12/01/11. The first thing you notice when you pour it is not the color but the smell, you kinda wanna sing to yourself a happy tune. It pours a copperish color with a frothy white head. The smell is awesome. Tons and tons of mango, persimmon, papaya all wrapped up in a nice sugar cane like sweetness. The flavor follows. Sweet and tropical with a nice piney bitterness on the back end. Perhaps a bit sweet but a nice tropical IPA, surely not abrasive, a bit cloying, but otherwise easy to drink.

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Sampled from Growler. I never thought I would get a crack at this one! Poured a medium and cloudy amber color wtih a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus (oranges and grapefruits), pine, floral, tangerines, and ’sticky’. Tastes of the same citrus, pine, caramel, and the same stickiness. Nice and hoppy with a malt balance in the taste. Alcohol content hidden.

"wish list beer from Travis. abrasive pours a dark deep golden. nice head. feel is slick and smooth. 10 weeks or so old, still smells fresh, maybe a little restrained on the hop flavor, which is still vibrant piney and grapefruit peels. very nice. Surly knocks another one out.
