3.96/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Appearance: Bright golden color with a white head and medium beading. Great carbonation, decent head retention and nice lacing. Great clarity, but unfortunately that allowed me to see quite a lot of sediment throughout the entire beer that never settled.
Smell: Big piney, citrus aroma. Slightly sweet and fresh smell.
Taste: Identical to the aroma. A light sweetness at the start followed by tons of piney citrus. Nice bitter, crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, thicker, malty feel. Good carbonation, but I wouldn't mind a bit more to cut down some of the thickness.
Overall: Very glad Surly's come back to my area. They're a great brewery. They may have been taking a tongue-in-cheek jab at over hopped West coast IPAs but they managed to create a great one in the process. Definitely worth a try if you're an IPA fan.
Serving type: can
