Thanks to THECPJ for the share. Review from notes 1/15/11.

A: Pours a deep cloudy orange/red, much darker than most in the style. Nice foamy two finger head that leaves some nice lacing as I drink.

S: Has a very nice hop aroma, really strong pine and juicy grapefruit. Don't get any malts at all, just lots of hops!

T: The malt is a little more present in the flavor and comes through in a nice sweetness that helps to balance the hops a little. The grapefruit is coming through strong and there is a slight nutty flavor at the end. Has a slightly bitter finish.

M/D: Medium bodied, leaves a slightly bitter finish. Leaves my mouth a little dry. Overall very enjoyable, not overly bitter and very drinkable.

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.
