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.

My first Surly beer. The aroma is quite piney and resiny. Pours golden orange with a nice medium white head and great lacing. The taste is a nice balance of dry malt and hoppy pine flavors. A great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavy malt, heavy hops, heavy ibus, mod etoh. Smell of an american style barly wine. Certianly big and bold.

Hopmaestro (1653) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2017
Aroma is light herbal piney with citrus peels and ripe fruits. Taste is sweet fruity and malty with floral notes whispering in the periphery. Mild and slowly growing bitterness in the end building up the taste to a very tasty level. Solid stuff as usual from Surly.

Out of a can. Pours golden tan with white head. Scent is very piney. Flavor is intensely hoppy. A crisp finish leaves a bitter aftertaste.

Minneapolis, Mn - on tap at Surly Brewing. Slight sparkle to the medium golden pour, bubbly white head. Pineapple, spruce, cat urine in the fragrant aroma. Flavor presents some citrus bitterness, a touch of pineapple fruitiness, hint of caramel. Thick rich luxurious mouthfeel.

MaltOne (371) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2017
Pint Can - Pours butterscotch copper, soft, frothy head. Citrus, slightly sweet aroma, hint of vanilla. Taste - tropical fruit, vanilla, dry finish. Palate is the standout feature... creamy for an APA, balanced, substantial (not heavy), clean, clear, bright. Overall - doesn’t astonish but the balance of tropical and dry, and great palate gets very comfortable, very fast
