look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Look: Dark orange/copper clear with small head that recedes quickly.
Smell: Caramel, toffee, honey, and pine.
Taste: Piney, caramel, and toffee with no bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, but full.
Overall: Disclaimer here. 3 month old ipa picked up in Florida, maybe that's why it was malty. A joy to drink, need to try it fresh.

Can poured into a Russian River Brewing Co nonic pint glass

A: Pours copper amber with a creamy tan head that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Citrus, grapefruit and candied orange, pine, fruity notes, peach, apricot, passion fruit, a bit earthy, toasty bready malt, and caramel toffee sweetness.

T: Leads with a nice bite of grapefruit and pine, then the fruity side opens up to candied orange, peach,, apricot, and passion fruit, a little peppery spice, a bit earthy, backed with slightly toasty bready malt, and caramel toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body moderate carbonation.

O: My first Surly beer. Couldn't believe it when I saw a pretty fresh can sitting on a shelf while on a road trip. Wish I nabbed more. I'd put this somewhere in the red IPA or hoppy amber range, but who cares. It's damn tasty.

Appearance - Pours wonderful deep amber color with thin off white head. Spotty lacing.

Aroma - Very mild citrus and grass, hints of sweet caramel and malts. Hints of pine as well. It is like all the aromas are very mild but balanced.

Taste - A very nice combination of sweet caramel and malts mixed with orange peel and pine. Very balanced flavors.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated slightly bitter and dry.

Overall - A very well done balanced beer with great flavors.
