I frequently overlook this beer, for no good reason at that. My favorite style of American IPA, somewhere around Two Hearted and even within range of Arrogant Bastard. Dry malt, piney, citrus shows up as acidity (but in a good way). Balanced ABV, a bit murky in appearance. But definitely needs to be poured into a glass.

Picked up a can from TW Arrowhead on 3-12-17 for 3.49. Canned on 2.7.17.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head.

Nose is grapefruit forward.

Taste is grapefruit over a bready malt base. Finish is light pine resin.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a nice brew to try. Love the balance!

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.
