Thanks to Tballz420 for trading this one to me.
Can poured into my stemmed Allagash glass.
A: This beer pours a rich copper/red brown with orange highlights. I usually pour my beers rather vigorously to try to generate a nice big head, but a huge frothy off white head formed from a gentle pour. It lingered for a very long time and left amazing lacing down the glass.
S: The aroma is piny and citrusy. There is a little tiny bit of malt in the aroma as well, but it is pretty well overshadowed by the hops.
T: The flavor is pretty much hop forward upon the beer first hitting your tongue/mouth. The hop flavors are, like the nose, pine and citrus. The middle of the flavor is a nice mellowed out sweetness that gives a little bit of caramel and other malt flavors. The end returns for a nice mildly bitter aftertaste.
M: The mouthfeel is a medium body with a good amount of carbonation. The beer seems to feel thinner the longer its in my mouth. First hitting my mouth it feels kind of full, then it fades to a watery feel as the light sweetness sets in.
O: I really, really enjoyed this IPA. I have never had anything from Surly brewery and have never even really heard much about them. In fact, I probably wouldn't have known they even existed if I didn't deal with Northern Brewer and know that they teamed up with Surly to make their line of kits. I am going to buy and brew one of those now. Awesome work Surly.
Oh, I also really dig that it's in a can and it comes in an actual pint. I think we need more craft/quality beer in cans. I dig em.
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
