BEER INFO

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Surrealism is an artistic movement that attempts to express the workings of the subconscious and is characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtaposition of subject matter: dreamlike; hypnagogic; non sequitur; erroneous; solecistic; and inexact. Such are the qualities of Salvador Dali’s paintings that can be enjoyed at the beautiful Salvador Dali Museum in downtown St. Petersburg. We at Green Bench took note of Dali’s surrealistic art , delicately combining the tart, acidic, and puckering qualities of a sour ale with the tropical, bitter, and dry characteristics of an American IPA to create Surrealist IPA.

This is, by far, my favorite beer.

Take everything you like about sours... then add in the hoppiness you love about IPAs... and you have this unique, tart, delicious beer. If I had to send someone to try just one beer in the entire Tampa area beer scene, it would be this beer.
