I have definitely been on a DIPA kick lately, and was very excited to try this one.
A - Pours a hazy orange, great two/three fingers of head that dissipates somewhat quickly, great lacing.
S - Sweet resiny smell. Some earthy notes in there for sure, a little pineyness. Light hop smell relatively, also has some hints of tropical fruit towards the end of the nose.
T - A punchy wave of flavors blast the palate. Bitter earth tones, pine, and citrus notes all dance around. Taste was on point.
M - Changes flavor across the palate. Good carbonation, aftertaste somewhat lingers, but in a good way.
O - Great beer, leaves me wanting to try all the other Surly brews! This is a DIPA that I could have multiples of.
