Poured from a 64oz Surly growler with a two finger head that faded very slowly and had a crystal clear copper appearance. A huge citrus hop aroma and slight maltiness reappeared in the taste which hit the tongue like a hop semi - explosive! Felt smooth going down and the hops caught the tongue like little hop needles. Amazingly easy to drink for the amount of hops and high alcohol content. Very impressed with this beer and feel very lucky to have had it. I hope Surly seriously considers brewing it again next year because I've never had a DIPA quite like this - essentially furious on steroids!
Serving type: growler
