4.5/5 rDev +10.3%
Served on tap at new Republic bar in Uptown in a tulip then a second one in a pint glass.
This brew has an off white head that laces beautifully, after breaking down a quick swirl quickly brings it back to life. Color is an attractive copper with orange highlights. Cloudy.
Aroma has a lot going on. Bready malt, plenty of hops (citrus, earthy, spicy, very aromatic), On top of this estery yeast is also very noticeable and works well here. Just a hint of funk from Brettomyces but it takes a very definite back seat to all the other aromas. Fantastic.
Upfront the taste is bright estery yeast with clean pale and bready malt with plenty of hop bite yet is clean and crisp with minimal lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is smooth with a nice juicy hop bite with good body.
Overall this is a very interesting brew that feels like a meshing of many styles and unlike many brews that have tried to do this it totally works. Delicious, made me have to hang around for extra pints because this is such a complex tasty beer.

On tap at Surly's Darkness Day at the brewery. First time this is available. Served in a 8 oz. clear plastic cup.
Appearance: Color is a somewhat hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of carbonation. A solid three fingers of white creamy head with good retention. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A pretty hop forward aroma with subtle Belgian elements. Big smell of citrus hops upfront with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, lemon, and tangerine. Some Belgian yeast with a bit of funk, Brett, and hints of cherry wine. A little bit of earthy pine. Some bready malts in the background with hints of caramel, toffee, and biscuit.
Taste: A good sharply bitter taste with a little Belgian kick. Upfront is a strong taste of citrus hops with some grapefruit, orange, lemon, tangerine, and pineapple along with some earthy hops and pine resin. Subtle Belgian yeast along with some Brett. Some sweet cherry wine like flavor underneath the hops. Also some bready malts with notes of caramel, biscuit, and toffee. A pretty solid hop forward taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Has a fairly juicy bitter feel that has a drying finish.
Overall: Another very good IPA from Surly. The Brett and Belgian elements add some interesting undertones.

3.6/5 rDev -11.8%
Served on-draught into a generic tulip glass at the Republic bar in Minneapolis (just across from the Town Hall Brewery). Reviewed from notes taken around Thanksgiving 2012.
A: Pours a two finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, but average retention (~2 minutes). Body colour is an orange-copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Bretts, bread, cream, and amber malts. An average strength aroma.
T: Bretts yeast, grains, vague bright fruit, pale & biscuit malts, floral hops, and a bit of cream. Well built and balanced. I like it. It's quite flavorful and complex.
Mf: Smooth, wet, and crisp. Carbonation and thickness are good and suit the style.
Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable for the style. I'd get it again. Surprisingly complex for a brett yeast beer of this type.
