Canned 12/26/12.

Darker burnt orange pour. Deep color. 1.5 finger caramel and khaki head. Faint retention. Nice lace strands.

Nose is light hop esters, hints of caramel malt and lightly scorched toffee.

Mild pine, herbal, and citrus hops. They all play well together. Hint of mint. Definite burnt caramel malt background. Sweet finish, then a bit of hop acid burn, then dryness. Nice complexity there.

Feel is surprisingly thick and oily. Chewy against that malt profile.

Overall, a solid drinker.

a fantastic ipa, which totally took me by surprise. the pour is pretty standard, pale orangey straw color with a finger or two of white foam. the nose is piney hops, sure to be a high alpha bomb, some lightly toasted american barley malt happening as well, but the big oily hops are stealing the show. the flavor confirms a nice hoppy brew, but fairly balanced despite how intense the hops are here. what surprised me more than anything is how soft the mouthfeel is. its really really gentle on the tongue, which is absolutely not what we have come to expect in ipas. the carbonation is relaxed but suitable, and the body is near medium, but somehow there is the feather soft character to it that is a total shocker. really wonderful way to experience hops. in the end i loved my first surly beer, not one of their highest acclaimed brews, but a very impressive introduction. the feel makes it.
