COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Great tropical hop aroma and deep amber color. The taste is more tropical hops with mango and raspberries shining through. The malt is there to back it up but doesn't get in the way of the hop profile. Really good.

16 fl oz (475 ml) can at home, canned on 01/10/2014 (4.5 months old). Unclean amber-copper color with nice light frothy off-white head that lasts thin until the end. Very nice aroma, hoppy and malty at the same time. Light floral, pine, tropical and citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange, and sweet caramel malty scent too. Taste is the same. Some malty sweetness and a lot of hoppy bitterness! Very nice! Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. One of my favorite IPAs!

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2014
Pours like pure liquid amber. Surprisingly deep amber actually. Wonderful dense hop flavours and taste. Tickles the nose this one. A carnival of candy, flowers, fruits and the like in the mouth, followed by a terrific clawing burning on the way down the throat. Leaves a sweet citrus effervescence on the "burp" as Oz Clarke would say.

SimonTja (244) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
Got a bit surprised of how copper it is, but it pours copper, almost like a scotch ale. Aroma is straight up citrus, a lot of tropical fruit, but also some nuttyness to it. The taste is super balanced, the 99 IBU in a 6.2% is not even really dominant, the malt body is different but somehow almost perfect to this 6.2% beer, I am usually against speciality malts in my IPA/Pale Ales, but this one did it way better than any other I’ve seen.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Haandfestivalen 2014. Mørk gylden med medium høyde på skummet. Aromaen er furu, malt, tropiske frukter og humle. Samme i smaken. Søtlig først, så fin og bitter i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens.
