16 oz. can poured into a nonic pint glass. A hard pour brings about a slightly orange cream colored head; very large with mostly small bubbles, really nice lacing to it. Liquid is darker than I would expect for an IPA, sort of a nice hearty amber color. Still very good clarity to it even though it's a little darker than I expected, a really good looking IPA.
Smell is good, a nice solid malt backbone here. Plenty of toasted caramel malt aromas and a wee bit of toffee. Nice hope presence to (as expected). There's a nice grassy, earthy, piney, and citrusy. Has it all going on for a solid smelling IPA.
Taste is good. Again with a solid malt backbone, initial sweetness followed by the hop bitterness. Not really sure on the hop combination here, but whatever it is, it meshes together very well. Very well balanced flavor. I'd describe it as a nice toasted caramel malt flavor followed by some nice citrus and pine.
Mouthfeel is very good. Well balanced, and smooth, medium body. A slight resiny feel to it. Starts sweet with a clean, dry and bitter finish. The carbonation level is perfect too. Extremely drinkable , slow sipper or one that could be enjoyed quicker if you prefer. All in all a very good IPA, Surly knows what they are doing.
