Can dated 4/26/11 poured into a pint glass. Thanks KeefD for sending a 4-pack of this my way - I've been wanting to try it for awhile.
A - The beer pours a hazy, dark amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Good head retention and moderate lacing. I was quite surprised when I poured this beer as it was much darker than I was expecting.
S - The smell is mainly dominated by citrusy and fruity hops - zesty grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. The hop notes are backed by a nice slightly sweet pale malt. No alcohol present in the nose.
T - Large amounts of piney hops hit you up front with a moderate bitterness. The malt really helps round this one out and keeps it from becoming too bitter. Caramel and toffee-like tones are present from the malt. Dry aftertaste with a lingering light oily hop resin. No presence of alcohol.
M - High medium body with a medium carbonation.
O - Overall, I thought this was a fantastic brew and one that I'd quickly turn to all summer long if it was available locally. Very drinkable. I've only had a few of their offerings, but I've yet to be letdown by Surly.

(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
