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.

Can Via trade with Brewo, thanks Aaron. Dark amber complexion with a large 3 finger puffy white head. The aroma of hopps were immediately noticeable with that nice citrus hoppy feel. Taste is hoppy bitter and strong, got a bit of an arrogant bastard feel, very tasty and it has a big kick. good beer, from a can.

Red body, creamy tan head, with real nice lacing. Immediate hop node. In fact, that is all I get, hops. The taste is an aggressive hop, a bitter astringent dry hop. This is a hop bomb IMHO, but nice after shoveling the drive way for the second time, all while working lots of snow over time. Thanks to BUCKYBEER!

Thx to John & kathleen for this one! Clear foxy red with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops and red fruit. orange fruity taste with a good dose of malts and the expected heavy hopbitterness. Very drinkable for almost 100 IBU. As far as Iíve had beers with this amount of hops. Medium bodied.

A beer like this reminds me of why IPAís were my favorite beers when I first started drinking. Huge grapefruit scent, bright orange copper color with large puffy head. Flavor is bigtime citrus- grapefruit, lemon, pineapple with a sweetm malt backbone. Finish is bitter of course, but makes you want more. Excellent.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Can: Deep copper, fairly clear but with a few floaties about, large frothy sand colored head, very nice lacing. † Subtle caramel malts and hop oriented nose, slight citrus peel and tea leaves. † Stronger tea and citrus presense on the tongue. † Slight malt graininess as it warms, and nearing the backside. † Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. † Feels fairly smooth. † Lingering hop bitterness well after the finish. † Not nearly as potent as I would have thought for 100IBUs. † Only thing I wished is for it to be a bit more floral and without the subtle grainy bitterness on the finish. † Otherwise, quite good. † Thanks Joe for the brew!

On tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. Good malty flavor with strong hops accent. Very drinkable.

Thanks to Ty5592 for this one. Wow, another awesome canned beer! The pour here is clear deep coppery ruby with a 2-finger fluffy white head. Great look on this one. The aroma is malty, with piney hops, cabernet notes, and a lot of citrus fruit. The taste is bready malty, with big fruit and hops, including prominent tangerine and black pepper notes. Very complex palate, with a good heft. Arguably the best canned beer Iíve ever had, and not arguably one of the finest beers Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 16 oz can. Nice notes of apricot, peaches and pine on the nose. Excellent head retention. Highly carbonated. Very clean crisp and dry on the palate. Nice amount of hops balanced nicely by a hit of maltiness. Excellent IPA.

GG (2019) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 NorCal tasting Feb 07 - First time tasting an IPA from a can and I can safely say that it was a really nice beer. Fresh, green, hopped-up nose with a clean malt profile. Apearance was amber in color, clear with a nice hefty head. Mouthfeel was a little lighter than I like in IPAís but overall it was still nice. Flavor was just a clean, crisp, hoppy, sweet malt combo that made this a very nice experience.
