COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hops? You’ll 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, it’s about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.

Thanks to Badgerben for this one. Dark amber – chestnut pour with more carbonation than I expected and a medium foamy head. The aroma is big! Lots of powerful malt, caramel, syrup and nougat. Hops just help it along with pine and citrus. A good malt body greats you along with your first blast of power hops. Burnt malt, caramel grains (even a hint of chocolate…or am I imagining) with big pine/spruce hops throughout with citrus peal well represented at the finish. The bitterness is two fold in this one as it seems to be coming from both the hops and perhaps some tannic grain husks. Some metallic hints as well. Body is medium in general though the mouth feel is a bit more watery than the flavor initially leads you to believe it will be. Good.

decaturstevo (4964) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2007
On tap at Mckenzies in Minneapolis. A large hop presense on the nose. A deep amber pour with a small tan head. A semi sweet start that quickly gives way to the flavor of hops. A bit of fruitiness eases through as well as an excellent bitter finish. Very smooth carbonation and mouthfeel. An ass kicker of an IPA that is smooth on the palate and hops are all over it. Very good beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Can from theisti, via Zinister. Thanks! Pours a rich amber and cheddar orange with a two-finger head. Intense pine and grapefruit in the nose. Flavor is pine resin, grapefruit, and more pine in the finish. Coats the tongue like Sherwin-Williams. This is a fantastic IPA. I MUST HAVE MORE!

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Pours a very dark, burnt orange. Floral hop aroma with some mild malty/cookie notes. Mouthfeel is very full with some very slight stickiness. Hops are extremely dry. A very good, if challenging beer.

asedzie (590) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Canned. Pours deep copper with khaki head and a bit of lacing. Big spicey citrusy aroma of passionfruit, fresh oranges, strawberry and fresh flowers...all of this married with sweet and sticky caramel malt aroma. Flavor is resinous hoppiness with thick, sweet and slightly salty malt flavors. Behind the strong hoppiness I sense some cookie dough-ish malt flavors. Creamy, fluffy mouthfeel. Great palate. Dry and bitter finish. A glorious and intriguing IPA.

Indra (2595) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 9, 2007
16oz. can. Strong aroma of fresh, citric hops, some orange and flowers in conjunction with lighter notes of red apple fruitiness, pine, toasted malts and touches of fresh wood and earthiness. Clear medium red-copper color with a very fine but lasting head leaving wisps of lacing behind. Flavor is rather easily dominated by the suitably aggressive hop character, which brings flavors of tangerine, pineapple and herbs to go along with the massive bitterness, and blended towards the middle with a darkly honeyish, toasty malt character. Sprucy, leafy, tangy and again very solidly bittering at the finish. Finely effervescent and lightly resinous, oily and drying mouthfeel with a medium body. This stuff just makes with the hops, and fast. Thanks a bunch to theisti!

jcwattsrugger (11076) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2007
16oz can-pours a foamy light tan head and red/amber color. Aroma is citrus/pine hops, medium malt. Taste is citrus/pine hops –some bitterness, secondary medium malt-caramel/brown sugar but not quite balanced. Further in and with food balance is better. Hops are dry and some spicing comes out. OK carbonation.

Ungstrup (29173) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
Can. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is lovely hoppy with notes of grapefruit and caramel. The flavor is sweet and extremely hoppy, that makes it very dry and grassy, combined with notes of pine needles and grapefruit. Thanks to yespr for bringing this to Denmark.

(Can 47,3 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Very piney nose. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel malt but otherwise dominated by the extremely dry aroma hops. Really dry as a bone - quinine-like. 290607

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 RBSG 2007 Pub Crawl – Cask at the Happy Gnome. Clear copper with a small, bubbly white head. Grapefruit and earth nose, a touch of pine. Flavor is bitter citrus, herbal, earthy, bold but not sharp. Dry earthy herbal finish.

Re-rate. 16 oz can from UncleJedi - thanks! Gushed a bit... Hazy amber with a huge beige head that descends rockily. Earthy grapefruit nose, pine and caramel. Earthy hop flavors, lightly spicy, grapefruit and rich caramel. Herbal finish. Awesome rings of thick lace al the way to the bottom. Wonderful! Bumped from 3.8 to 4.
