Poured from a pint can into a pub glass.

Appearance--Excellent two-finger foamy head with good retention and lacing. A very pleasing crimson color.

Aroma--Not always the biggest IPA fan, but this has a nice, balanced approach with sweet malt and piney hops in a fine harmony.

Taste--Again, I've not been a huge IPA fan--too many brewers have ruined the style by making it an IBU contest. The concept here works--a fair amount of sweet Scotch malt mixed with the bitterness provides some interesting nuance.

The mouthfeel is great--as usual one of the best aspects of an IPA. Nice carbonation and lift. Very drinkable.

Overall, this is one of my favorite IPA's. For those looking for an more "approachable" (i.e., not so bitter that it's trying to win an IBU prize) IPA, this is your ticket.

Poured from tap into 16oz glass at Galloway Grille in Eau Claire. Light amber color with good citrus aroma. Nice hoppiness and bitter finish that doesn’t linger too long. Solid.

Heavy citrus aroma, little bit of pine and caramel. Pours a beautiful crimson red. Very hoppy and bitter brew. Awesome! If you see this brew get it!

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass.
Look- very dark amber, below average head retention and lacing.
Smell- piney, caramel.
Taste- piney, malt forward, hop finish, hint of toffee, malt lingers on the palate.
Feel- medium-full body, average carbonation.
Overall- Very malty IPA that overrides hoppiness I expect from an IPA. Definitely not one of my favorite Surly beers.
