Surly Brewing Sleek IPA
What the brewers say
Purring with aromatics from hefty Simcoe dry hopping, Sleek’s grapefruit, pine, and melon flavors race across the tongue. Dynamic hops taste. Zero drag.
What our panel thought
Slight haze, tropical nose with layers of strawberry, citrus, and a touch of dankness. Perfect body with the tropical hops flavors coming to the front. Juicy fruit finish with lower bitterness than the style calls for. Leans toward the creative juicy side of the style.
What our editors thought
A citronella nose mashes up fruit with mint, tire rubber, and subtle cannabis. The sip is superbly smooth in its expression of bitterness despite the impossibly pale body. Excellent.
