Notes/Commercial Description:
It's been said; "Its easier to brew an extremely hoppy beer than an extremely balanced beer." And you know us, we are always looking for the easy way out, so we jumped on the West Coast IPA Bandwagon and brewed this dry and hoppy ale. "Surly's a little bit of a one-trick pony, they just brew gimmick beers," and maybe we are OVERRATED, but at the end of the day it's just a beer. If yo like it, great, so do we. If you only liked us when we were small, then leave this one on the shelf. Let one of the fanyboys grab it.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: This poured a hazy gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like apricots and grapefruit and dank pine.
T: It tasted like resin and unripe apricot. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Fizzy body.
D: This was a solid IPA with nice scent and taste, but weak body. The finish was fairly smooth, so it was easy to drink. Good brew, but not top tier.

Serving type: can
