16oz can poured into a snifter. No bottled on date listed.
A- Pours a clear light orange color with a good finger and a half worth of a white colored head. The head slowly fades to some froth hanging on the sides of the glass.
S- This beer smells awesome. Immediately upon popping the can I got hit with hop aroma. Grapefruit, citrus and pine dominate the smell.
T- The smells carries over into the taste. The most prevalent hop presence is the piney resin taste. There is some slight citrus/mango/grapefruit, but the pine notes seem to dominate. Not much of a malt presence here, just hop domination.
M- Well carbonated, medium bodied, hoppy and bitter with a very dry finish. The alcohol is well masked and this one is rather refreshing.
Great DIPA from Surly, and very easy drinking.
