The 6.7% ABV West Coast IPA has the characteristically super-hopped flavor that put Surly's name on the map in the first place. Care to know why they called the new joint Overated, though?
It's been said: "It's 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 you 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 fanboys grab it.
So, once you recover from Surly slapping your face around, recover with a Overrated.
