Pours a reddish color with a foamy canvas colored head. Notes of brown sugar, pine, orange citrus, and sweet bread. Nice round mouthfeel. Ronritter (775) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2016
On tap at ling and louies copper color with medium white head very hop and bitter flavor not my favorite Surly but still above average. Zymurgeist2 (2272) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Tap in Chicago. Aroma is pretty subdued of flower garden and citrus and faint sweet malt. Copper-golden clear with white head dusting and around the collar. Taste is restrained pine. Massive bitterness dominates. I’m missing the plot here on the high ranking. pinkzambia (1933) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Can: I’m surprised this has such a high rating. I wasn’t that impressed. It did have a pleasant citrusy hop aroma. But the butter flavors seemed kind of musty and spoiled. Medium body. Good IPA but not deserving of the 100% rating. Concealer (1249) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Can. Clear copper with a frothy beige head that lasts and laces some. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, grass, biscuit, caramel, floral, notes. Flavor is the same, mostly bitter pine/grass/floral with some sweet caramel and grapefruit. Medium plus bodied, smooth with a slightly dry, bitter end.

Tall can gift from Jc1762. Dark amber body with big head. Very inviting. Nose is very hoppy, with barley and spicy notes. Just great. Taste is also very hoppy, then becomes more caramel, burnt malts and a punchy, alcy finish. Warms up real good. Excellent beer. Thanks Jon! danielst (406) - AUSTRIA - SEP 29, 2016
On tap: Orange amber color. Grapefruit and lemon pith aroma, sweet crystal malt and hop resin flavor. This is really tasty and a nice change from paler IPAs. dnstone (3430) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Deep copper with a slight haze and strong off-white head. Fantastic hop medley aroma spiked with piney notes. Flavor is dry and piney with an excellent soft texture and just enough maltiness; hops are complex and well done with orange peel notes. Quite good.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2017 Thanks Virby44 for the can! Poured into a snifters showing moderately filtered dark brown with white foam around the edges.
The nose doesn’t show much. Light malts with a bit pine but not much else. Upon warming up, a lot of caramel malts on a very light background of pine resin.
The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of light juicy pineapple with moderately intense pine resin in the background supported by a light malt backbone. Simple but tasty. The can is about two weeks old but I’m guessing this would have a lot more fruit and less malt on tap.
