COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its been said; "Its 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. "Surlys 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, its 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.

Pretty beer when poured. Orange gold. Juicy, dank, resinous hop aroma and taste. Light bit of toasted malt is present in background. Very flavorful, good bitter finish and lingering fruity hop aftertaste. Fairly dry. A very good west coast ipa, wish it came in 6 packs rather than 4, but Id have no qualms buy 8.

Can poured into the ipa glass. Nice orange-gold hue with an off-white head. Smells of dank hops with citrus fruits and sweet resin. Taste is on point! Plenty of gushing fruits and the typical hop bite with a slightly dry finish. If youre a fan on the west coast ipa... you owe yourself the opportunity to try this one out. Cheers to Surly!

Sample at first sunday. A little band aid hop and yeast presence. Still aggressive with the hops especially in the aroma. Lots of grapefruit citrus. Would love a more diverse hop profile but not going to knock it too far. Still a nice drink.

Hazy pale amber. Nose of light grapefruit and pine with some candied malt. Flavor is bitter grapefruit and citrus with some light caramel malt. Lingering dry bitterness.

Bire orange, voile, au col de mousse mince et ar. Leffervescence est modre. Le nez prsente des oranges juteuses (en apprhension), du citron et des fruits tropicaux. En bouche, un bel quilibre subsiste entre les saveurs fruites des houblons et lamertume. Easy going!

Can to glass. Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with a frothy light tan head. Aroma has that aluminum can character, with a touch of citrus. Flavor is wonderfully fruity, fleshy fruit hops. Very drinkable. Quite tasty. Thanks Drew!
