Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to Buebie for this one.
4.0 A: Hazy orangish brown color. One and a half fingers of yellowish white head with average retention and spotty lacing.
5.0 S: Excellent! Wonderful bouquet of floral and citrus notes. Orange, tangerine, mango are most dominant. Soft sweetness and a tinge of alcohol beneath the hops.
5.0 T: It tastes as good as it smells and that is saying something. Bitterness is perceived as mild due to the plentiful hop flavors. Loads of citrus again with the fruits mentioned in the nose. Soft sweetness, but the malts are very much overshadowed by the hops. Still, without this subtle sweetness this beer wouldn't be as good. The 9% ABV is hardly detectable. I think the reason I like it so much is because it seems to share a few aspects with NN, which is my favorite brew.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Fairly creamy. I would like just a touch more body.
5.0 D: Really great brew. Surly does nothing but impress me with what they make and this is no exception. Super smooth with a great taste, I could drink this all night. Well done.

Poured a thick, hazy orange. Very attractive, with a long lingering head and good lacing qualities. A big nose of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. The taste mirrors the nose with big fruit and pine, and little malt notes. Just how I like them. Great carbonation and a nice drinkable feel. Very we'll done.
