Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
It's been said; "Its easier to brew an extremely hoppy beer than an extremely balanced beer." And you know us, we are always looking for the easy way out, so we jumped on the West Coast IPA Bandwagon and brewed this dry and hoppy ale. "Surly's a little bit of a one-trick pony, they just brew gimmick beers," and maybe we are OVERRATED, but at the end of the day it's just a beer. If yo like it, great, so do we. If you only liked us when we were small, then leave this one on the shelf. Let one of the fanyboys grab it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned on" date 3-16-18.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, copper color with one-finger off-white head that slowly dissipated until a thin unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, caramel and some pineapple citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially bread and sweet pineapple citrus and then an earthy hop profile.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a nice juicy IPA, I enjoyed and would buy again, I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

Pours a slightly hazy copper with rocky lacing that persists. Smell has a nice assetve piney, citrus rind aroma. Taste is tropical fruit, orange, sharp citrus bitterness with pine notes in the background. This beer could use a little juicy hop softness to round it out. Very good traditional IPA, though.

12/31/17 16 Oz Can, canned 11/28/17, poured into standard pint glass. Clear straw coloured pour, mild fluffy cloudy head, mild carbonation. Negligible citrus, hops and pine aroma. Lack of aroma did not carry over to taste and mouth feel. Nice hops, citrus and malt blend, pine noted as well. Very good mix of harsh and mild. Bitter and pleasant. Strong mouth feel, easy drinking. Very good solid beer. Thanks brother for the can!
