Interesting to see how this has averaged out to outstanding, interesting...

I will freely admit, I'm not an IPA-guy, I'm more of porter/stout aficionado. That said I do believe I will appreciate a good IPA when I come around to it. This is a damn good IPA - distinct red coloration, good foam to start and great lacing to finish - it's hop-forward in your face from beginning to end and whether it's cold or warmed. I can see why those that gravitate to this style would love it - it's a bitter masterpiece from the get-go. I would definitely offer this up a strong representative of the style - not for beginners - but for the true believers.

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

Look- translucent amber liquid with a billowing off white head that settles to about 1/4" and sticks around; tons of lacing

Aroma- Toast-like malt notes, grapefruit, orange and an earthy, almost black tea-like thing going on

Taste- follows the nose with toasted bread, orange, grapefruit pith, and that earthy/ tea-like note

Feel- medium-light bodied, medium carb, long bitter finish

Overall- nice hoppy red ale

Finally got to have this classic. Am reviewing from memory (had last week), so go easy on me if I'm somewhat inaccurate. Here goes:

A: Pours a murky red with a huge caramel head that leaves nice lacing. Also plenty of body carbonation. Good.

S: Lots of pine and grapefruit. Also a fair amount of caramel malt. Very dark and succulent.

T: Very citrusy and grapefruity. Also very sweet malt to complement the hops. Very well balanced.

F: Good.

O: Good beer.

Had this in a can in Minnesota. The beer has a nice amber, murky appearance with a huge head. The beer has a nice malt aroma mixed with some spiced hops. The taste is pretty hoppy mixed with like a caramel malt flavor but the mouthfeel makes the beer a little too heavy and dense for my taste. Overall, enjoyable mixture of flavors but an off mouthfeel.

Poured from 12-ounce can into a stemless wine glass. Translucent caramel color with a reddish highlight here and there and a two-finger off-white head that left some pretty lacing. Good, strong malty backbone that provides some nice structure for the piney and citrusy hop blitz. Pleasantly bitter and dry finish. This sample was about three months past the canning date, but still delicious and drinkable. Another great offering from Surly!

A nice dark rich copper caramel color pour. Smooth citrus notes and pine presence make up the smell. Taste is aggressively hoppy with a nice mouthfeel.

= Furious has been my go to at bars in MN when all else fails. A great ipa that has some bite to it.

nice foam! dark orange color, not much of a nose. the taste is pretty ok. hops is prominent and the taste is clean. not an overly malty beer. might buy again and/or try the brewery's other offerings.
