On tap at Surly's Darkness Day at the brewery. Served in a 8 oz. clear plastic cup.

Appearance: Color is a somewhat hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that slowly fades into a patchy layer. Decent lacing for a plastic cup.

Smell: A pretty hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus and some rather subtle smoke. Citrus hops upfront with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, pineapple, and lemon. Grassy hop hints as well as some pine. Pale malt with some almost Brett like hints of yeast along with hints of grain, cracker, and biscuit. Smoke and chiles come through but are subtle compared to the citrus. A solid aroma.

Taste: Hoppy and juicy like the aroma but with more of the chillies and smoke heat coming through. Upfront juicy citrus hops with notes of mango, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, lemon, and tangerine. Some earthy hops with notes of grass and spicy pine. Pale malt with notes of grains, biscuit, caramel, cracker, and more of that slightly funky yeast. The Puya Chiles and smoke notes come through much stronger towards the finish and linger into the aftertaste. A very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nicely juicy with a moderate amount of heat on the finish from the Chiles.

Overall: A pretty good twist on a West Coast style IPA. Good juicy hop taste with an interesting kick from the Chiles.
