look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.6/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Serving type: on-tap
