A: Beautiful dark amber with a frothy off-white head. Great lacing on the glass

S: Citrus hops play a huge part in this beer. Slight hint of Juniper as well.

T: All kinds of citrus hop presence, followed by a good dose of carmel, then finally some bitterness from the hops.

M: Smooth and almost creamy, not much for carbination, almost like it was pulled from a cask.

O: A very solid IPA, one of the best I have had to date. Would probably go broke if I could buy this whenever I want.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a dark red orange with a small fluffy white head. Smells of flowery and citrus hops, very nice aroma. Tastes of citrus hops with a nice afterbite, with a hint of light grain. Beer is heavily carbonated, medium bodied, dangerously sessionable. Overall a superb beer.

Poured from 16 oz can into Duvel tulip.

A- Pours a great looking burnt orange with a good amount of yeast floating around in there. There is about two finger's worth of head and recedes slowly leaving some enticing lace along the side of the glass. I am liking the looks of this beer.

S- Possibly the best smelling beer I have ever had a chance to experience. The hops are so pronounced, almost like fresh tea mixed with grapefruit. The smell bursts out of the can once it is cracked.

T- This one doesn't disappoint. A pretty evenly balanced beer with the citrusy hops and a little bit of bitterness. Tastes like there is also a tea bag in there. The malt provides a solid background to smooth things out. All I can really say is wow.

M- A great medium bodied brew that has a good amount of bite from the hops and from the carbonation. Yet, at the same time, this beer is very smooth and goes down quite easy.

D- Perhaps my favorite IPA, heck this may even be my favorite beer. If I lived in Minnesota, there would never be a time when this wouldn't be in my fridge. If you get a chance to try this beer, do it. You will regret it otherwise. Here's to Surly for making one hell of a beer, in a can nonetheless.
