3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap pour at Gold Nugget. Beautiful deep amber color and excellent lacing. Visually I may even go so far as to say stunning appearance. A citrus, hoppy affair that tastes better with each sip. One of the mainstream Surly options but still a good option.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is hazy orange with white head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, caramel. Taste has some citrus, malt, piney notes, moderate sweetness, dry finish. Low-medium body and medium carbonation. A good ipa but was expecting a little bit more. Still very enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orange to amber with finger length head. Aroma of pine, biscuit malt, and herbs. Taste - wow. I can see why this is so highly regarded. Lots of tropical fruits, toasty malts, and a long-lasting bitterness that somehow still tastes smooth and balanced, like Ruination does - not overpowering at all. Great carbonation and mouthfeel. This is really darned tasty. Given the overall flavor profile, the closest comparison I can think of is Sierra Nevada Torpedo, but itís better than that - the bitter herbal hops also have such a fruity characteristic. Like Ballast Point Sculpin, this would rank even higher for me in total points if the aroma were a bit stronger. Flavor and mouthfeel-wise, though, which is what matters most in a beer, this is the goods.

On tap at Ikeís at MSP. Copper with thin beige head. Plenty of lacing. Very aromatic - citrus, pine, caramel. Heavy sweetness followed by very bitter grapefruit hops. Slick, resiny mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very nice IPA.

Tap. Copper. Great head and excellent lacing. Love the piney smell. Crisp, but very bitter. A great Minnesota standby.

Your first Furious is like a slap upside the head, and I say that in a good way. This is my favorite beer and I would rate it a perfect 100, but there is aways room for better. If you like hops, youíll love Furious. If you donít love Furious, you donít like hops.
