Reviewed from notes Darkness Day 2012.

Amber color with a white foamy head with very good retention and lacing. Smells like grapefruit and oranges, bread and caramel malt.

Tastes like grapefruit, oranges, citrus zest, pine, bread malt, and caramel malt. Nice combination of bitter hops and sweet malt.

Light to medium bodied with average carbonation and a somewhat dry bitter finish. Another great IPA from Surly.

Served on tap at Darkness Day. Appearance is a nice clear gold with soapy white head. Sticky lacing left behind, small amount of retention. Nose is hop forward with a decidedly floral hop profile. Layers of grapefruit and pine sit atop pale base malts. Very aromatic. Taste is equally floral. Starts with bitter waves of pine and then comes leafy hop flowers. The finish is slightly bitter with almost no sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, another fantastic and flavor forward hop treat from Surly.
