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 via trade. A moderate to high hop nose that is kind of muddled with citrus but also some heavy grassy notes, almost English-like in nature. Seems like they are fighting each other and not working together. A strong malt presence that is needed to stand up to the bitterness. But this seems more like a sweet DIPA than an IPA. a little too over the top in hops and bitterness. Would much prefer a less bitter, and drier IPA

Great and shocking IPA. Nice hops and bitterness, darker color than I am used to, great local brew to Minneapolis.

I love this beer. The color is a rich deep amber. Almost a golden brown or copper. That nose is very fragrant. Massive amounts of hop with hints of citrus. I detect sort of a copper smell as well. The taste is bold and balanced. Upfront the hops take hold and release your mouth to a very pleasant pine resin and citrus bite. It gives you a bit of its malty structure and finishes with a bitter kiss.

So glad chicago has Surly! This has become one of my go to hoppy beers. I also love having it in can format to fit at the top of my beer fridge.

16 oz. can, thanks to treebute. Dark hazy orange pour, with a small, beige head. Big aroma of piney hops, bitter grapefruit, coriander, and whole grains. Big bitterness, with a grainy sweetness, and just a touch of fruity sweetness. Slightly unpleasant, sour aftertaste. Heavy body, very grainy, sticky, and syrupy. This is a good, very hoppy IPA.

This is truly a beer hard not to like. The malts on this IPA I feel actually are more pronounced then the hops unusual for an IPA. Slight taste of citrus very mellow. Although the can says hints of carmel if there not really tasting them. Great brew to par with a lot of different foods.
