Leave it to Surly to cut to the chase and name their beer with a decidedly non-west-coast-flattering name. Today we get a look at the 16oz can for Surly Over Rated! West Coast Style IPA. Since I can’t say it better….this form the label…”What’s with the hype? It’s been said; It’s easy 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 bandwagon and brewed this dry and hoppy ale. ‘Surly’s a little bit of a one-trick pony, thy 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.”
The original label is below. This label was rejected by the TTB for featuring elements (the unicorn & rainbow) that may be appealing to children.
Surly Overrated IPA is scheduled for early April release.
