Appearance- 16 oz can poured into a pint glass. Clear golden orange with a solid inch of white head. Good lacing all down the glass as it is drank.

Aroma- A good whiff reveals some herbal grassy hop notes too it. The aroma isn't overpowering like you might expect

Taste- Lots of grassy bitter flavor as well as some pine and orange peel taste. A hint of booziness to it.

Mouthfeel- Pretty good. Well carbonated, not too thin but not coating your mouth and lingers just long enough

Drinkability- Sign me up for another pint!

Thank you Karen my friend who is a BAD-ASS who lives in Minneapolis who used to live in Missouri and was my employee at the restaurant I co-own. I love Karen in an inappropriate way...she and my wife are friends, but Karen brings or sends me Surly...Karrren. Bright brilliant light orange with tiny bubbles rising to the top. The top...a never ending foamy fluffy white head that is just now dissipating after 45 minutes of alternating sip sip sip SWIG. The head stayed at 1/4 to 1/2 an inch for sooo long. Yummy earthy citrus funky skunky hop aroma. The flavors follow in the way flavors might and sometimes do...not quite a mirror, but still a fantastic balance on the palate finishing...finishing, with a cleansing bitterness. Flavors of citrus fruit and earthy funky hops. Smooth and slick in the mouth yet finishing dry and inviting another sip. If I could I would drink this every day, it rocks.

A - Bright copper gold with a finger of head. Head diminishes quickly.

S - Very hoppy clean. You can definately tell your participating in a little bit of IPA heaven. Floral yet very sweet at first. Once the head diminishes the beer itself has a grassy, earthy tone.

T - Hops, hops, hops. The taste can only be described on my palate as fresh and bright. Although now apparent in smell there is a dinately a citrus (grapefruit/orange)start to it and finishes very malty.

D - Some may find this beer a bit too much and very filling. I, however, love chewing on my beer and find this one very tolerable and easily able to finish 2-3 in a sitting.

(I have found from beer to beer the taste changes. I am not sure if this is because of age, wetness/dyness of hop, or amount/type of hop included. Nonetheless, it is a hit every time)

Cost - I paid $15.99 for a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans. This is my only frown. I did, however, by a second helping the next.
