COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been said; "It’s easier to brew an extremely hoppy beer than an extremely balanced beer." And you know us, we are always looking for the easy way out, so we jumped on the West Coast IPA bandwagon and brewed this dry and hoppy ale. "Surly’s a little bit of a one-trick pony, they just brew gimmick beers," and maybe we are OVERRATED, but at the end of the day, it’s just a beer. If you like it, great, so do we. If you only liked us when we were small, then leave this one on the shelf. Let one of the fanboys grab it.

Tap @ GTMW 13. Pour is clear yellow, with a small frothy white head. Aroma is fruity/juicy hops, slight tropical fruits, citrus and a light malty/caramel backbone. The taste has some sweet notes up-front, with a nice amount of hoppy bitterness from the middle and out. Average body, with a slightly fizzy carbonation.

Pours orange with a sweet piney aroma. Starts bitter them a soapy sweet hop flavor. Needs more hops to be called West Coast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pour at GTMW 2013. Pours gold with a big eggshell white head. Notes of lemon and grapefruit citrus, pine, fresh ground-up herbs, and plenty of florals. Some balancing caramel and pale malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Really nice, refreshing IPA.

Doften är ganska tam men med inslag av tropiska frukter och något sötare jag inte kan sätta fingret på. Även en aning maltig doft. Smaken är besk, fruktig likt citrus och även ganska maltig. Kort eftersmak.

16oz can. Hazy bright orange-yellow-tan body, Frothy, soapy white head. Bright, oily citrus aroma, similar taste. A really well done IPA, it is pretty West Coast tasting. The hops are quite resinous, oily. Quite balanced despite all the funny talk, toasty golden malt tones. Has some of that nice fresh garlicy hop character that you find in really fresh beers. Well done.

Klen doft. Lite honung möjligen. Balanserad och bra. Känna välgjord. Men är den lite trött kanske? Burkad i mars så kanske. Drar den parallellt med Furious.

Mix of grapefruit and rotten/funky fruit on the aroma. It looks like beer. Taste is right down the middle, not too sweet, not very bitter. I like the amount of malt used to smooth this out. Very nicely balanced, and very enjoyable.

Pours a clear amber with medium white head. Floral hoppy citrus aroma. Flavour has a nice sweet malt balanced with a medium bitterness and fruity hops. Nice west coast IPA

Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Great stuff. aroma of harsh grapefruit zest, pine resin, and grass. Pours beautiful hazy amber with a big head. Taste is great and hoppy. Grapefruit zest and smooth Pine resin. Not too bitter with a great smooth malt back. Easy to kick back.
