Served from a can into a Bellhaven pint.

Appearance- Clear amber with one finger of head. Good lacing.

Smell- Piney hops, some mild fruity hops, earth. Very herbaceous.

Taste-Piney bitter hops. Nice malt backbone to smooth it out. Not very fruity, much more earthy hops.

Mouthfeel- Light body with smooth carbonation. Very sessionable.

Overall- This is a nice IPA with a very light body.

Pouring a light copper color from the can, the beer had a slight white head in the pint glass. The aroma was surprisingly mild, composed mostly of hops with a measure of citrus. At the forefront of the taste were onion and citrus like hops. There were bitter acidic and citric notes present, crisp to the point of being an attention getter. The highlight for me were the dark sweet malts that lay the backbone. The bitterness continued into the aftertaste, lingering slightly with certain orange notes. The carbonation hovered in the moderate range, allowing the taste to linger just long enough to be noticed without overstaying its welcome. This is not my favorite effort by Surly, but it is solid and quite drinkable.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - A dark orange almost amber color, the head at pour is thick and then thins out to above a collar. Lots of lacing left with the glass. A bit murky.

Smell - It smells of hops a bit frosty, malt, slight corn, floral and grapefruit.

Taste - A little bit bitter with a strong grapefruit after taste. After a while a tinny taste lingers on your tongue as it washes out probably from the can.

Mouthfeel - The hop bite is solid but it feels a bit carbonated.

Drinkablitity - Average, it might set some off overall but I'd have to knock its score down as an American IPA because of the tin. I also don't particularly like grapefruit.
