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.

Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a very hazy light copper-orange color with a lot of particles in suspension. The wispy thin white head laces the glass. Citrus aroma. The flavor is balanced with sweet malt, orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, and resinous notes. Medium body and carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Finishes dry.

Can. A semi-cloudy golden beer with some sediments and a medium size frothy head. Aroma is of caramel, malt and some floral hints. Taste is medium bitter with some sweetness. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.

Not a bad beer by any other standard but is my least favorite surly a little over carbonated and slightly empty flavor profile

Finally got around to trying this, caramel, grass, spruce, dough, almost tobacco too for some reason. really authentic nice tasting hops coming through. not too bitter either really, but that might just be from just previously drinking a double. I am definitely a fan.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/7/2016. Pours hazy golden amber/light orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is a great IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; despite fairly aggressive bitterness and resinous dryness. Neither were overwhelming. A very enjoyable offering.
