The Surly Target Field only exclusive. Had this because the Cynic was gone.

A-Off white head tops an amber/orangish colored brew. A little hazy.

S-Hoppy yes (grapefruit, pine, with a hint of some other non-descript citrus aromas). Grainy barley malt, some cookie type sweetness there too.

T-Hops hit me right away and same as the aroma, the malt backbone is ample. Finish is bitter and long-takes away from the refreshment factor.

M-Medium carbonated, a bit piney, astringent, bitter. Too bitter for me.

D-The bottom of my glass was pretty tough to take down. Was ready for a Nordeast after this one.

O-What you would expect from an IPA from Surly. A solidly made brew, just a little over the top and too hop forward for my taste. If you like IPAs you got to check this one out at the ballgame.

I had this on-tap while we were at a Twins game. Poured into a large plastic cup.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear brown amber color with a half finger of off white head. The head sticks around pretty well and leaves a layer on top of the pour.

Smell: Lots of hops up front with some citrus peel notes. Rather sweet from the malt, goes well with the hops.

Taste: A very nice balance here. Enough hops, they definitely dominate, but the grain does a good job of complimenting the hops. The finish is rather bitter with a mild sweetness from the malt.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a slight dryness in the finish.

Overall: This is a solid IPA. More malt than in most, but plenty of hops to go along for the ride. I would have another one.

A- reddish color and foamy at first with lower carbonation than some beers have

S - a slight hoppy aroma not alot

T - Pine hops like a douglas fur not alot of malt or sweetness in there

M - a nice beer to sip in the sun shine at the baseball games but expensive $8.75
