Now You See It

We’ve had a long, hot summer here. Chances are you have too. We’re also aware, more than most, that this summer will eventually end. We know what awaits. Making the most of the sunstruck days and warm evenings on the calendar is essential. So is Invisible Rays.

Surly’s late-summer seasonal is a tropical IPA brimming with pineapple and guava notes from the Talus and Lotus hops. A kiss of lactose smooths out the finish of a beer radiant with fruit-forward flavor. Summer isn’t endless here, but you’ll wish this beer was.

The particulars:

  • Style: Tropical IPA
  • ABV: 6.8%
  • Hops: Lotus, Talus, Mosaic, Ahtanum
  • Malt: 2-Row, Honey Malt, Oat Malt, Golden Naked Oats, Flaked Oats, Unmalted Wheat
