Year of New Beer: Rocket Surgery, Surly Brewing Co (MN)

Written By: Dion on 05/26/2020

Hazy? Eh, not really. But I'm not going to complain, because I'm just happy to see something from this brewery in the KY market. Lots of orange and grapefruit on the nose, with just a touch of herbal dankness creeping in as it warms. On the tongue, this just hits as a good, solid IPA. Juicy, not overly bitter, but still enough hop bite to satisfy most of us beer nerds. Very modest malt backbone that comes off with a bit of bread crust. Nice citrus through the finish. Nothing spectacular, but hopefully it will open the door for more Surly products in KY down the road.
