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.

On tap at Links taphouse in Chicago. West coast ipas are a thing for a reason, and that is because they are awesome. This one is very good, so even if it is a gimmick it is well done. A solid beer

Old can. The beer has a hazy orange color. The aroma is malt. The taste is a typical malty west coast IPA. The name kind of explains itself unfortunately.
