A= Pours a hazy bright orange color with a nice finger of foamy head leaving behind some decent lacing along the sides of the glass. Orange IPA's are my weakness.
S= West Coast Style IPA for sure. Loads of just straight dank hops. Smells like a fresh opening from a bag at Northern Brewer. Really powerful hops.
T= What do you know the taste is "mega hop". Punches you right in the mouth with a huge hop flavor. Big piney citrus notes. Very resinous and full of nice pollen. There is actually quite a nice buiscuit backbone to it what while it isn't a major flavor offers a little relief from the assult on your taste buds from the hops. Your burps taste like hop pellets.
M= Typical clean refreshing west coast IPA mouth on it. Leaves just enough cover on your pallet.
O= West Coast IPA is what they wanted West Coast IPA is what they get. This is exactly what I expected from Surly and they certainly delivered. Imagine a West Coast IPA done by Surly and you know what it tastes like. If you are fortunate enough to live in this great state do yourself a favor and buy lots!
