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.

Just a great IPA from Surly. Everyone is all about the Surly Furious and for good reason. However, I would take this beer over Furious any time. First time I had it was on tap straight from the brewery. I was extremely happy with my selection. I don’t get it often, but it is difficult to resist when I see it on tap!

Gotta love a brewery with some self-awareness. While brewing Overrated, Surly planted their tongues firmly in their cheeks and set the dials to hop-forward. Don’t let the self-deprecating humor fool you. Overrated has serious class. Yes, hops rule the balance, but there are nuanced touches of nectar, juice, and bread. In fact, you may be surprised if you approach this like a typical West Coast Style IPA. Try it for the joke and stay for the deliciousness.

This is not the in-your-face hop slap you get with most Surly brews. Hops in the nose and definitely hops on the tongue. Hops lean towards the piney. But the hops aren't the only show. Decent malt base. Good body with some substance, not thin. Leaves the lips a bit sticky. This is an IPA that could easily be a session. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it out of a can, and it was deeelicious!! A subtle but firm aromatic hop taste with notes of citrus and pine. Pours a hazy orange hue with a good head and uneven lacing.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy white lacing head. Aroma of fresh American hops. Lots of orange zest, tropical fruits and floral character. Flavor of fresh American hops. Touch of biscuity malt. Smooth bitterness. Floral, citrusy and piney! Not quite Topper but might be as close as you can get from another canned IPA.

Pint can. Delicious west coast IPA. Smells like a handful of fresh hops. Golden with a delicate white head. Citrus hop flavors dominate in a silky smooth body. The best I’ve had from this brewery.

Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Big punch of citrus and pine hops to start with, Pours a nice amber with a slight haze, and a tight white head. If you’re not a hop head, back away from this one. It’s a big hoppy beast, with moderate body, and a long lingering bitter finish. It’s missing the slick mouthfeel that can come with lots of hop use, but it’s a damn fine beer.

Pours a very clear dark orange color with tons of lacing on the sides. Has a strong aroma of Citrus, Grapefruit, and Piney Hops; Almost like a Wet Hop scent. The flavor has a strong sweet citrus & piney hops taste to it; The flavor reminds me of Surly Wet. Heavy Body and carbonation is relatively moderate. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit and makes me glad that I have access to such great beer!

From a 4 pack. Aroma is a nice piney resiny scent touch of citrus also. Flavor is nice and hop forward pine comes right through followed by citrus and grapefruit, very bitter up front and then calms down. Huge fan of this beer!!
