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.

Pint Can coutesy of Skyview. Aroma malted sweet citrus on the nose. Amber body and with a easy pour a thin head. Flavor was average grapefruit with medium bitter hop at first. Middle to finish citus bust of sugary ornges and grapefruit had me saying this is more like it. Good refreshment while watching football on a Sunday afternoon.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 I crack open the can and take a quick smell.......whoa! A strong smell of pineapple and piney hops. Pours a dark amber color with a thin foamy head which made me check whether this was really an IPA. Lots of sticky lacing. Upon first tasting it is rather smooth and citrusy (orange/pineapple). It then finishes with a piney bitterness with some roasted malts in the background. Has a nutty touch to it. A great IPA.

16oz. can served in a pint glass. A bit of a gusher when I opened it. Poured a hazy dark gold. There appeared to be yeast, can conditioned? Huge citrusy hop aroma. Initial hit of hop bitterness. Plenty of caramel malt flavors to back it up. Some orange, citrus in the middle. This is a really nice IPA, plenty of hops for the hop heads, but a nice malt backbone to support it. Thanks to Dansting for this one.

16 oz. can via trade with mreusch - Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is big pine and citrus hops and light malt in the background. Flavor is big hops (citrus and pine) and with some sweet floral fruitiness to it. Quite bitter, but goes down quite easy. Slight lingering hop aftertaste. Medium body. A very good beer. Thanks Matt.

GABF 2007. After being disappointed by the Darkness and then tasting this, I became very skeptical of Surly. The hops profile reminds me of DFH 90 minute in the smell, but with more grapefruit over the dirt and earth. Thinish body. Not at all expansive or bright with the flavors, this degenerates mostly into unbalanced bitterness. In my notes, I wrote, "I have a feeling Surly is everything that’s wrong with over the top." In the burgeoning craft beer world, where brash in-your-face brands like Three Floyds and Stone are doing so well, there is the danger that new market entrants will confuse style with substance. My limited experience of Surly so far has me thinking that they are going over the top for all the wrong reasons.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2009 Pours opaque ruddy brown. Thin head and lots of lacing. Wonderful hoppy nose with pieapple and caramel. Great balance between hop and caramel malt in the flavor. Clean dry finish. The best canned beer I think I have ever had!

Awesome beer from a can! And hoppy? Man. At 6.2% its an IPA, but the hop rate here is all DIPA levels. Big huge piney resiny hop aromas, followed by monstrous resiny hop flavors. Hugely bitter finish. Huge, just huge. There’s a brown sugared toast for the malt, which is heavy enough but is clearly taking a back seat. Lightly hazed dark reddish copper, big beige head, thick and protein rich, with moderate lacing.

Can from GenoG. Thanks Adam! Pours an orange amber with a small white head. Huge aroma of caramel malts, and tight, earthy citrusy hops. Flavor is equally tasty with a lot more hops and a nice malt backbone to balance it. Well made ipa. Wish I could drink this everyday. Do these come in 30 packs?

16 oz. can from slob, thanks for this goodie! Pours hazy dark reddish copper, with a huge, fluffy beige head that leaves thick lace. Aroma features caramel, toast, floral and citrus, spice and ripe fruit. Rich malt backbone with toffee, citrus peel and pine needles, nice balance to the flavors, sweet orange juice in the finish. Smooth, medium to full body and easy carbonation. Wow, this is a great beer - especially from a can!
