From tasting notes 10/20/17
Had on-tap at StoneArch in the MSP airport, St Paul, MN

Appearance - Served up in a pint, hazy and light orange in color with a mostly barren surface and a broken, razor thin ring of suds around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Juicy and citrusy with a tropical edge. Orange and grapefruit. Pineapple, mango and guava. Yep. Pure juice bomb.

Taste - Follows up on the nose with assertive juiciness. Orange and apricot primarily, with lesser pineapple and mango. Faint grapefruit mid-taste before a light, pithy and peachy finish. Juicy acidity lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Firm, medium body with moderate carbonation. Slick texture upfront turns a bit chalky and dry in the finish, but nothing unexpected of the style.

Overall - My first Surly beer, and it does not disappoint. Ive heard great things about this brewery and so far it holds credence. Very nice.

Draught in Minneapolis Airport: This one pours a cloudy, golden color. There was pretty much no head or lacing. Good nose. Lots of tropical hops, with pine, citrus and some pineapple. The taste is very good. Tropical hops dominate, but much more bitter than expected with all those other hops in there. Pine and citrus flavors also.

Had on tap at Butcher and the Boar. The beer had a murky, dark orange appearance with big bubbly white head. Aromas were rich in pineapple while the taste included sweet orange and pineapple upfront with bitter end. Pretty decent carbonation for the mouthfeel. Overall, really good.

Poured from a 1 pint can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned on" date 3-7-18.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, orange color with less than one-finger tan head that quickly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is light lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread and tropical citrus, there is also a dank, musty note.

TASTE: initially dank and musty, then the sweet tropical citrus taste and bread.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is an excellent beer from an excellent brewer, I have not had a bad beer from these guys, I enjoyed this beer very much but.....it's a little pricey, glad I tried it but not really in my budget as a go to beer, I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style and does not care about value.

Pours a brilliant bright orange with good carbonation. Huge tropical aroma with slight pine. One of the best beers to nose. Tastes of pineapple, citrus, and orange. Mellow hop flavor. Wonderful mouthfill that coats the tongue in tropical leftovers.

= Brilliant IPA. Surlys best in my opinion. A beer that provides this kind of aroma and matches it with taste leaves a huge impression. Keep shredding Axe Man!
