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!

4/7/18: 16 Oz can poured multiple into a pint glass, canned 11/28/17 12:18, gift from brother. Brown reddish pour, puffy off-white head 2 fingers, lacing prevalent after pour, mild carbonation. Sweet pine needle aroma balanced by hops. Firm taste, hops strong, pine balance. Bitter, pleasant. Carbonation holds, firm mouth feel. Overall very good offering!

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.

Could rate higher some nights, lower on others. A solid, drinkable, but in the end, unexceptional, IPA.

Canned 1/30/18. Pours a caramel-brown-tea color with an off-white-yellowish head of 3 fingers. Sparse lacing left on the glass as the head recedes.

Aroma of fresh pine needles, dank marijuana, old apartment complex, and moldy carpet. And more marijuana. Oh and then some more.

Flavor is way more impressive than I thought it'd be. Sticky and sweet with some caramelized brown sugar, flipping over to dank weed and pine needles, finishing on caramel rolls and baked bread. Some slight orange slice in there, too.

Feel is carbonated first, then starchy, then resiny. Poppy finish. Also instant headache with this one. Certain Lagunitas beers do the same thing to me.

Overall, besides Todd I'm not a huge fan of anything Surly, but I figured I'd try this since it was on sale and canned relatively fresh. It's not bad - it's not my style of IPA, but damn if it isn't a good mimic of a breakfast caramel roll with an orange slice on the side without the general sweetness, eaten in a house of pot smokers.

Crystal clear transparent red-hued amber ale, topped by a prodigious light cream colored head. Excellent retention and nice lacing. Very lively.

Lovely aroma: caramel grains and brown sugar provide a strong backbone for pine, grapefruit, and mandarin orange hop notes. Slightly floral. Not an overly complex nose, but straightforward, inviting, and satisfying.

Flavor follows. It's an intensely bitter IPA, the caramel grains carry more weight than expected. Hop notes match the aroma, along with a slightly dank finish.

Crisp, lively, active, with a fairly dry finish.
