Received as an extra from fourisbetter. Love the Surly, thanks!
Canned on 1/21/11. Reddish-gold body with a bunch of suspended particles. I did store the can on its side in the fridge, but this is a bit ridiculous. Nice frothy two fingers of yellowish head.
Nose is malt and piney hops. Rich and complex.
Wow, flavor is intense for 6.2%! Somewhat heavier on the malt than I prefer, but fully balanced (and then some) with hop bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Chewy. Love the creamy and thick body on this one.
A really good chewy and tasty IPA. I can see why this is a MN staple. Another big winner for Surly.
Serving type: can

(on tap at Local Option - served in British pint, I think - can't quite recall)
A: (dry-hopped) cloudy, dark amber liquid... slimy foam that leaves some nice rings of lace
S: Amarillo hops, English yeast?... pine, stewed pear, apple... golden raisin?...
T: bitterness a lil grassy, pesky bite... little alcohol... malt only in the background, light caramel... mostly resiny hops here, somewhat grapefruity, a little peppery... rounded edges, overall dry finish
M: soft, dull-foamy, flat-ish... very easy to knock back quick
O: the bartender's reaction may have said it all: "but that's only a regular IPA... that's all you want?" - haha... never had it before, so yeah! - ended up having 3-4 other beers as well... it's a decent American IPA for sure... having used Amarillo once or twice in recent homebrews, I can smell this damn hop whenever I come across it now, and I dig it - it's distinct, not bright and citrusy, a bit more dank and overripe... glad I was able to try this, disappointed not finding Coffee Bender anywhere though
Serving type: on-tap
