Thanks to dzyneguru for hooking me up with my Surly fix.
A: Pours a light orange color. Very clear with off white head 2 fingers width. Great retention and nice thick film on top.
S: Nice blend of orange peel with citrus and mild piney hops. Malt aroma comes through faintly.
T: The first thing that came to mind when I tried this was an iced tea flavor. A little sweet with grassy undertones. Hops are not overpowering. Just enough bitterness in finish to leave mouth dry and begging for more.
M: Medium carbonation and nice body. Good for this style.
D: Could drink all day. One of the better bitters I have had. Goes down so easy. Very crisp and refreshing.

A - Copper orange, clear, with a large white head that bubbled off quickly and reduces to a thin film, with mild lacing.
S - Surprisingly strong hop note, mostly of pine. Malt is also present, a quality of bread.
T - This is a subtle brew, but offers both cracker flavors and bread in the malts and an element of grass from the hop. There is a hint of citrus and pine, but it buried deep in the mix. Most important is the bitter shift at mid-point, where we get a more standard bitter.
M - For as bitter as this is, the brisk carbonation and light body and ABV keep things bright and easy. A true session beer.
O - Where I've found most bitters lack something at their core, this bitter is robust and fully realized, ultimately quite satisfying. This is not my favorite style, but this represents an exciting entry that I'd actually reach for when looking for a brew by the lake where I need to keep my edge.
