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.

Fantastic aroma and thick lacing head. Not to the caliber of Furious but it is pretty close. They should have stuck to the unicorn label. Grapefruit and pine front end. Back end bitter and not as pleasant as the amazing aroma. A little to one dimensional but still an amazing beer.

12/31/17 16 Oz Can, canned 11/28/17, poured into standard pint glass. Clear straw coloured pour, mild fluffy cloudy head, mild carbonation. Negligible citrus, hops and pine aroma. Lack of aroma did not carry over to taste and mouth feel. Nice hops, citrus and malt blend, pine noted as well. Very good mix of harsh and mild. Bitter and pleasant. Strong mouth feel, easy drinking. Very good solid beer. Thanks brother for the can!

Mild aroma of citrus, some pine, and cantaloupe. Nice orange color wit a fluffy tan head. Nice rich sweet malt up front. Mostly caramel, then followed by some citrus and fresh pine. Finish is more bitter than sweet, but not overpowering. Medium mouth feel. Solid.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Can. It poured a hazy gold with a frothy white head that left a good amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus - grapefruit and tangerine - with some resinous pine in the taste. It is moderately bitter. Definitely not over rated. Good job Surly!

16 Ounce can at home received in trade. Medium tan head. Orange, bronze, and hazy in color. Not overly hopped, which I liked. Film left on glass. Some hop after taste left on palate. Overall pretty good for style.

Hopmaestro (1823) - 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.

3.8
PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2017
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.
