3.93/5 rDev +4.8%
On tap at the taproom.
Color is a dark brown with an off-white head.
Flavor profile: Roasted malts. Kind of smokey from the peat. Caramel and chocolate. The oak shows with notes of vanilla. A lot grassy and floral hops. Bitter, but creamy. Some fruitiness. Some coffee.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy, and bitter. Medium bodied.
Overall, a solid brew. Very interesting and it had a lot going on with it. Unique is a good word for it.

3.6/5 rDev -4%
Appearance: Murky brown with a thin light tan head.
Aroma: Toasty/sweet malt similar to Bender.
Taste: Very much a hopped up brown ale. Some good earthy hop character but overall sweet caramel toasted malt.
Mouthfeel: Just above medium in body and a bit heavy for an IPA. Average drinkability and regular carbonation.
Final Thoughts: Chose this one from the tap list because I assume it's a one-off type deal. Definitely an interesting beer but far from the being in the top of Surly's line up. Basically a hopped up brown ale. Would I drink it again? Maybe.
