Finally got my hands on a Surly; Furious gets my v-card. It begins by pouring a faintly murky amber hue. The head is good as well as retention.
99 IBU's... no kidding. Savage grapefruit, lemon grass, and pineapple flavors whack the nostrils from the hop side of things. The balance between herbal grassy tones and sweet juicy fruit flavors is very good considering the intensity of both. As far as malt goes... er, well it doesn't really matter; it's in there somewhere.
Resiny pine and bold grapefruit are at the forefront, with a little bit of sweeter citrus flavors lingering around. The hop flavors are really snappy and refreshing, it seems garden fresh. Considering the hop intensity, the way the malt comes through in the mouth is certainly more noble than the nose. Toasty biscuits and a dash of sweet caramel round things out well.
The feel is very nice and crisp, however the carbonation never seems overly sharp or fizzy. The body is fairly light actually, but there's too much flavor going on to drink hastily. Finish is nice and dry, begging for persistent drinking.
Everything is put together with extreme passion. The hop profile is fresh, bold, and complex. It toys with an imperial line, but the bottom line is that this is one ass-kicking IPA.

Poured from a can into a regular glass
A- how do all DIPAs look? Golden amber with a redish hue when held up to the light. Not much head and not much lace afterwhich. Looks good but nothing special.
S- the smell redines the smell of pine in DIPAs. It smells like there is actual pine straw in this glass, but in a good way. There is also a sugaryness from the malt.
T- very piney like the nose. Also has a good wheat taste followed by fruits and a strange taste that reminds me of something rubbery but not exactly rubber.
M- a little bite from the hops. Goes down pretty smooth but the malt keeps it from feeling like a true IPA.
O- very good but i prefer my IPAs to be a little more hoppy.
