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.
