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.

16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured deep orange, clear, big off white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus fruit and hops. Taste is also bitter, lots of citrus fruit but well balanced by malts making it quite smooth. This a great IPA, super enjoyable and certainly very enjoyable.

Can pour copper deep orange with moderate ecru head. Nose pine, resin, light dank, some grass. Nice hop nose. Taste moderate bitter bite up front then pine and dank. Mid palate balancing sweetness. Nose seems bigger than the flavor. Lingering pleasing bitter finish.

superspak (4468) - Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2015
16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/20/2015. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy reddish orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light roast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light roast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and minimal hop astringency after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. Despite the darker malt and appearance; this was still very dry with minimal overall sweetness as expected for a west coast style IPA. A highly enjoyable offering.

16 oz can. 6.6%. Canned on 09/22/15. Thanks a million Timo A! Clear red amber color with a tiny off-white head. Citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness, freshness, citrus and some dry malt in an amazing aroma. Yummy! The flavor is... super yummy! Fresh hops, moderate bitterness, citrus, pine, oily fresh hop cones and dryness in the flavor. Very fresh! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t think of myself as a hop head but I really enjoyed this, maybe because it is balanced with a good deal of maltiness. As noted elsewhere, pours copper colored with a good head that lasts well. Drinks smooth on the palate with strong spruce notes and a remarkably pleasant bitterness. Well done Surly.

Clear copper with light brown lacing foam head. Good hoppy aroma and decent bitter taste. An IPA in all its form. Kight citrus tones and lasting aftertaste. (Arnhem 201511)

Hoprider (376) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
App: clear copper brown with an off white head. Nose: pretty restrained but nice vinous hops and caramel malt. Fruity. Taste: solid malt base to carry the hop load. Evereting in good ballance. MF: medium with good carb Aftertaste: somewhat bitter but overall very nice and drinkable IPA.

574deadzone (1360) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a slightly hazed deep crimson with a fair khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves some crashing waves and splotches of foamy lace. Nose involves deep grapefruit and dankness reminiscent of Amarillo, some evergreen and spruce, rich malt notes including caramel, biscuit, berries, and toast. Maybe even some bubblegum. Decently sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, fair action, lush with hop oil, finishing on the dry side with herbal leaves. A nice red IPA, drinkable, lots of qualities complementing one another, and very expressive.

mgajdaczewa (1558) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 30, 2015
W aromacie początkowo uderzają żywice, później lekkie nuty tropikalne, z naciskiem na ananasa, karmelowo - zbożowa podbudowa słodowa, intensywnie i świeżo. Podobnie w smaku, żywice, tropiki, mniej cytrusów, solidna słodowość, balans, długa, nieco zalegająca w popiołowy sposób goryczka, choć i tak nie psuje to ogólnego wrażenia. Bardzo dobra robota, acz piwo nie olśniewające. Thanks @vipinvelp
