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. Just beautiful. 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.

Poured from 16oz can into glass. Marked with 09/08/17 canning date.
Classic dark amber color body, wide head settles to ring, and considerable lacing.
Smell is dank and piney, taste is piney and pith, medium bitterness at the end, some slightly sweet lingering at the end.
Medium, solid mouth feel.
I have not tried this for several years, but realized this is a very well done IPA that does not depend upon either coast for style. A standard bearer for Minnesota IPA beers. Solid beer that does not participate in the latest trend of juicy and hazy IPAs but still delivers a great beer experience.

1 PINT can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours a deep, ruddy, amber with copper highlights and a slight haze. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves some lacing rings as I consume.

The aroma is a balance of malt and hops. A toasted malt backbone holds up to citrus from the hops.

It starts out nice with earthy, toasted flavors from the malt. Then the citrus enters. Finally, I get pine and bitterness in the finish.

Medium mouthfeel

I recall liking it better on tap. This can was bitter and malty. It is a solid beer though.
