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.

Lots of hops all over the place on this golden orange colored beer from a 16 oz can. Thanks to toncatcher for sharing. Hops continued through the flavor with some decent malt backbone. Not too bad. I liked it.

Can sampled with Steg. The first thing I thought was cans ? But this one was really good. Big hop aroma with a brown pour and off white head. Taste delivered a big hop presenc as well as pine and alcohol. Really good but not blended as good as it should have been.

Can sampled with Mad_indian, thanks to Faro99 for sending this to me. Pours clear mahogany with a short tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, and piney hops.The flavor is citrus, spices, and heavy bitterness upfront, mellowing out, and finishing dry.

Best in its home town at the Tripel Rock or Nomad. Along with Oskar Blues, proving that good beer comes in cans.

Thanks to oakbluff for this gem! Surly Furious 16 oz can Moderate pour in a shaker Recent brewing, enjoyed 07/07. Poured a copper brown with a large rocky fully lasting head. Smelt of strong pine, resin, spruce and the whole forest of strong hops, pineapple cake, grapefruit, some toasted grain. Taste was upfront strong bitter piney hops with a moderate sweet toasty malt backbone followed by a harsh bitter resin hops and more of the hops backbone on a lingering resin hops finish. Palate was medium bodied, oily, lively carbonated, and strongly astringent. Overall, this is just awesome. Hops galore with a nice malt backbone. Perfect balance. Perfect everything really. Should almost be perfect, but I let my Steel Reserve drinking friend have a sip and he recoiled in disgust. "Too bitter, man! ", he said. So thanks to ballplayiní Jordan and his Steelies it doesnít get a perfect score. I suppose itís a little harsh if youíre not used to it. True, itís really harsh and bitter for an IPA. Maybe over the top for some people, but for an experienced hophead this is a nice little treasure.

Nice red-amber body with a frothy beige head. Complimentary blend of spicy hops, toast and caramel malt in the aroma. Big flavor with more toasty, sweet malt and aggressive hop flavors and bitterness. Has a note of rye-like grain. This is like a Big Red Ale and Iím a sucker for those when theyíre well-made. Thanks to allendodd for another one in my cooler at BCTC.

Served from a 16 ounce can into an imperial pint glass. Poured out a hazy orange tangerine colour with a very large creamy head. Smell- holy grapefruit Santa!! One of the best smelly IPAís I had the pleasure of sticking my nose in. Taste is a freight train of hops. Oily grapefruit attacks the mouth. Beautiful.... I am a hop head, but there is more than just hops to this beer. The scottish malt used adds a real depth to this beer and really helps countact the hop attack. I canít beleive this beer is only 6%. It could pass for a dipa, except a slight lack of sweetness. One of the best IPAís Iíve had and I canít wait to get back to Minneapolis to track more down. Mr Furious is a little rough around the edges, but how can you be refined when you are such an angry bugger? I put it right up there against Bell two hearted and Stone IPA- my other two favourite IPAís.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Cloudy orange, with a nice loos foamy white head. Bitter and sweet are nicely blended throughout, with Piney, woodsy hop note playing off caramel malt notes. Really, really good. Thanks to Buckybeer for the trade!

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Can, courtesy of Skyview! Poured a fiery, very autumnal shade of reddish-orange with a tall, sticky cap of beige head. The aroma was quite delightful.. caramel, toffee, and candied apricots sprouting and array of light fruity, floral, and pine hoppage. Flavor didnít skip a beat.. beginning with bitter apricot and grapefruit.. followed by the sweet caramel and toffee base.. ending on more vibrant fruity and piney bitterness. Long, darker bitter finish. Medium-bodied on the palate with a syrupy foray.. high and well-presented bitterness throughout. This was crafted beautifully, and was just what I was looking for.

Cobber/deep amber colour with a thin white head. Fruity hop aroma with a malty sweetness. Flavor is malt sweet with a nice mix of flowery and citrussy hops. The aftertaste is long and sweet with a bit of bitter flowery hops.
