Thanks to cyclone8 for this one! Poured from 16 oz can into pint glass.
A: Pours a reddish copper amber with about a 3/4" head and not much visible carbonation.
S: Awesomely hoppy (pine, then a really nice floral then citrus). Not much else I could detect here. But if there was a possibility of giving a 6.0 for aroma, I would.
T: Starts out with a good pine hop bitterness. There is only a trace of malt character evident. But at the end, just when I'm hoping for it to give me a hit of citrus hop sweetness, there is only more pine bitterness. Not bad flavor, just a little disappointing. BUT - as it warms somewhat, the bitterness at the back end starts to fade & a degree of hop and/or malt sweetness (couldn't decide which it was due to, or a combination) started to emerge, which was a pleasant addition to the flavor profile.
M: Medium to a bit on light side mouthfeel. Good carbonation present.
O: Good but not as mind-blowingly awesome as I was hoping. Just seems a touch overly bitter. BUT, definitely gets better as it warms up a little bit. My first Surly beer, and definitely a quality offering.
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
