16 oz. can poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance-Amber-red with a slight haze. Moderately large beige head with moderate retention and some nice lacing.

Aroma-This beer has such a phenomenal hop bouquet-Super floral, piney, light resin, big citrus with notes of grapefruit and lemon-this beer just plain smells awesome. Lurking under the hops is some nice support from the malt, with toast and caramel peaking through.

Flavor-Grainy and toasty malt are light up front, before hop flavors come in. Not as complex or powerful as the aroma, there are still notes of pine and grapefruit in the flavor. Bitterness is moderate and serves to dry out the finish.

Mouthfeel-Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth as hell with very light alcohol warmth.

Definitely my favorite of Surly's regular line of beers. For its alcohol and high hop content it is absurdly smooth and drinkable. The flavor is good, but the nose just blows other beers out of the park-it smells incredible. Love this beer.

Have had this beer Multiple times in a can, once on tap-
Now I attempt to review this BEAST of a *single* IPA

When poured into a Traditional Pub-Pint glass it offers a Great Full head, frothy remarks on the glass as it dissipates, You really cannot wait to dive into this Amber, Almost unmistakable Red toned brew.
Sent is Strong, full of a Rich, Solid-PINE tone right off the bat, which mellows to a lemon citrus aroma, Perhaps a little herbaceous, Delightful for the senses to say the least, Visual and on the nose.

The taste, Pungent, a blast of hops that could catch you off guard knowing one would think this is a basic IPA, but it really reaches the border to a more extreme note. Mouth feel is light, Not a lick' of sweetness, Has a quick tart finish, that leaves the tongue after a few moments, Talk about a palate cleanser while enjoying a fine dinner, or in between puffs of a Pipe or cigar

*but note if you plan on doing so this will mask a lot of the forefront flavors of the additional activity so this would most likely be your sure fired beer if you plan on Sitting down, and ENJOYING... a quality beer, simple as that*

I dig it |m|,
