COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hops? Youíll like this fire-hued beer. This is the beer I have always dreamed of making. This is the beer that would come to mind while spending the last two years tearing down walls, hanging sheetrock, moving kegs, power washing the ceilings, arguing with various agencies, and cutting the water main. Without Golden Promise malt, made by family-owned Simpsons Malt, Furious would just be pissed offed. From Scotland, this malt is still produced in the tradition of turning over the barley by hand, resulting in a malt that is unsurpassed in its quality. Golden Promise is also used extensively by premium whisky distilleries such as The Macallan. This malt provides the backbone for the intense hop character. Four American hop varieties are used at a rate of over three pounds per barrel. The result is a rich malt sweetness infused with bright hop flavor and aroma from beginning to end. Oh yeah, itís about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.

Can from my summer secret santa. Pours clear dark golden/brownish with a big creamy beige head. Strong tropical fruity aroma, flowers and pine cones. Taste is light sweet malty, with a quite suitable bitterness, resiny and pine, smooth and weak creamy mouthfeel,lingering resiny, shure a good one.

Pours a dark gold, cloudy with a little reddish tint. Nice big head. Citrusy aroma. Lots of lacing left on glass. Flovor starts off with a quick hit of citrus than straight into bitterness. As I let it warm up Iím getting a lot more citrus flavor and less bitterness. This beer proves to me that there are really good canned beers.

Iíve been drinking this for a few years now since I moved to MN and it is always a solid beer to have around. Piney, hoppy, malty, and bitter on the back end. Donít look to this for a lot of citrus because you wonít find much (there is some orange/grapefruit in there, but it gets beat up by the bitterness), but a great example of a solid ipa nonetheless.

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at Old Town Pour House in Oak Brook, IL The IPA poured a clear amber with a small off white head. The aroma was full of resin and some citrus. The flavors are aggressive and assault you. Bitter resin and citrus provide much to enjoy with each sip. This is a full bodied ale with average carbonation. Despite the high IBUs, this beers bitterness is remarkably gentle, ushering in a smooth finish without overpowering the tongue.

Bright, bold orange in color, this had a thin, spotty head that reminds me of new mexico storm clouds (the kind that look like someone spilled a bag of cotton balls). The nose is just as bold, citrusy, sweet, and divine. Thereís some greenness to this beer, and the mouthfeel allows for a beautiful absorption of the tasty character. Citrusy, with a delectable cleanness and sweetness offered by Golden Promise malt, this is a full-flavored, refreshing, easy, clean, and spritey IPA thatís hard to put down.

Received in a trade from BVery -- Can poured into a pint glass. Pour resulted in sticky lasting foam that laces the glass very nicely. Aroma is a little disappointing, Mild Citrus and pine nose. Flavor is similar bitter hops initially and a strong malt backbone flavor hops are a little lacking. Mouthfeel is great. Overall I was expecting more from such a highly rated/regarded IPA. By no means is this a bad IPA, it is a very good IPA.
