Direct Approaches

Direct Current IPA, Surly’s fall seasonal, hums with an overload of hop flavor and character.

Charged with generating an IPA that will light up your cooler, our brewers chose an electric blend of Galaxy and Vic Secret hops, overwhelming the grid with a juicy, orange-grapefruit jolt. The shockingly smooth finish ignites the palate and sparks an impulse for another high-voltage sip.

If you’re looking to alternate your current IPA selection, Direct Current is a galvanic choice. It’s available in six-packs and on draft to all Surly markets.

The particulars:

Hops: Warrior, Vic Secret, Galaxy (dry hop)

Malt: 2-Row, Acidulated, Munich, Vienna, Aromatic

Yeast: English Ale

Pour: Golden

ABV: 6.5%

Bitterness: Medium
