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.

CAN: cold, poured a cloudy brown with an amazingly mysterious head that looked like a loaf of bread and seemed to get more solid the longer it sat, kind of like a root beer float milkshake.. The incredible hops aroma about knocked me over. The flavor was actually very good with a full body and medium length finish. This beer makes me want to lift weights because it’s so potent in hops. If you can figure that analagy out I’ll give you $5.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 On tap at the Blue Nile in Minneapolis (great bar/restaurant). Dark amber in pour with a nice finger thick whitish head. The aroma is great! Citrus and piney hops as well as a bit of maltiness. The taste is again citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and definite pine but there is a bit more of the malt here as well. Nice bitterness that stays with the beer throughout. Surly makes me happy to live in the Cities!

Poured into a nonic. Very dark for an IPA, I’m expecting it to be malty. Head is tan and an inch tall. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is a blast of resiny, oily hops. Mainly pine, but some floralness too. I get a little sweet breadiness in the background as well. A blend of sweet caramel malt and pine-filled hops washes over the tongue, leaving behind a pointed hop bitterness that isn’t at all unpleasant. Less malty than the color would indicate, but still a nice balance here. Medium body, sticky and resiny from the hops, but the bitter finish is enticing.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2008
(Tap) Pours a nice amber color with a foamy white head. Strong aroma of piney hops and biscuit. Taste is also strong, but not as overpowering as I expected. Malty backbone includes plenty of biscuit, caramel, and toffee flavor. Hoppy grapefruit notes are pronounced, but but no means as strong as I expected. High drinkability, fine carbonation, balanced palate. A very good beer, but would have been even better with a little heavier of a body.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Can, 6.2%. Thanks, yespr. Powerful hop aroma, very nice, fat, teaish and caramelly. Almost clear dark brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is quite bitter, turning into a good hop flavour and then back to bitter. The bitterness is clean and pleasant and the hop flavour quite teaish. Good maltiness to balance the hops. 9 3 9 3 18

Can, 6.6%. Good grassy hop aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is nicely grassy with a good bitterness to balance the slight sweetness. Flavourful and well-balanced. 8 3 8 3 15

Tap, can & growler. Beautiful orange-amber color and smells just like hop blossoms and citrus fruit. Hoppy-smooth on the tongue, with a bitter but malty balanced finish. Yum.

On tap, poured from a growler, or in a can this is a great IPA. A great hazy amber pour leaves a rich white head. The citrus aroma is quite strong, but the balance of bitter and sweet gives this beer its character. I’m nice and close to the brewery so I try to grab a couple of growlers every Saturday.

[1029-20080108] 1pt (c/o DuctTape, w/ him, jerc, others). Sweet grapefruit hops aroma with a hint of sweat. Slightly hazy, orange amber body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Hoppy grapefruit continues in flavour with a hint of sweaty malt grain. Medium body. Nice, drinkable.

16 oz can from Stine. I was suprised this beer was so dark in color when I poured it- deep amber/brown in color with a medium off white head. Tons of citrus and some light floral hops in the aroma, with some molasses hanging around in the background. Taste- well this beer has a hefty malt backbone, but the taste is almost all citrus and floral hops, with notes of earth and wood- the malt does come through, and kind of muddles the hop character a bit. The bitterness is strong throughout and lingers nicely well after the finish. As much as I liked this, I probably would have liked it even more if they used some lighter malts. Thanks Eben!

Via trade with Cryotek. Pours a dark cloudy copper color with a large white head. Aroma is mostly citrus and hop. Overwhelming hints of bitter hops, citrus fruits, crisp spices, real malty. Finishes thick and creamy, with a bitter finish.
