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.

Really enjoyable. Pour quite a dark amber color, almost brown. Head is creamy and light tan in color. Malty, caramel, toffee, lots of piney hops, bitter, citrus, and very well balanced. Slightly earthy and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

Thanks to hellomynameis for this one - what a cool beer. Darker brown (looks like a Scotch ale) with an off-white head. Aroma is a nice mix of earthy-floral hops and smoky malts - lots of peat and wood in there. Flavor is really nice - smoky, peaty, woody, sweet malts mixing with a nice herbal-earthen-floral hop blast. A wonderful cross between an IPA and a good Scotch ale. Reeeealy good. Sorry Sly Fox and Oskar Blues, but I just found my #1 favorite canned beer.

These canned beers have totally helped me forget the crap of the past that once dominated all. Hops up front and through and through with good balance (not all hops) to boot. Wish this were available locally so I could say, no thanks, I had it when it was cool.

Canned. Beer is medium caramel-brown colored, clear. Head is average-sized, beige frothy/creamy. Slowly diminishing and mostly lasting. Moderate lazy lacing.<P>The first impression on the nose is heavy hop, malty ballast. Malty with light notes of buttered toast, toasted grain, moderate cookie and caramel; Hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine, moderate herbal grapefruit oil, trace of lemon; Yeasty with a trace note of dish rag.<P>The flavor is lightly/moderately sweet, moderately/heavily bitter, lightly acidic with a long, moderately/heavily bitter, lightly sweet finish. Grip doesn’t let up.<P>The body is medium, the texture is watery/velvety and the carbonation is lively.

Ernest (6220) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with light notes of peach and black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I can see why it’s well-liked; it’s nicely balanced for the style (very bitter but plenty of malt to back it up) and assertively hoppy in the nose but has malt character to keep it from being one-dimensional. Nice creamy mouthfeel too. A very good rendition, even if not the most appealing sort for me.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2007
Draught, at MacKenzies, Minneapolis, June 2007. Amber colour. Rather murky. Not surprisingly, this is all about the hops. The aroma is very intense with big pine and resin, but also a very leafy, herbaceous, floral character. Perhaps a little less intense on the palate. Relatively smooth and drinks quite easily. Despite all the hops, its not an outrageous "hops at all costs" beer and comes over as nicely balanced..

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 (5015) - 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.
