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.

This is a tasty IPA in the west coast style? It is very balanced and not overtly hoppy. It is a very well made IPA! My only complaint is it is in a can!
Pour it into a glass!

Apperance: Orangish amber forms a white head and nice lacing
Smell: hoppy citrus aroma
Taste: dry hop heaven it is well balanced and awesome I normally am more discriptive but hoppy and well balanced is all I can say
Overall: this is a well made beer and not overtly over hopped. Would dri no it again and again!

Great IPA in moderation!! At 7.3% really packs a hoppy punch. Should be called UNDERrated
