Pours clear dark amber with a lace head. Light citrus hop aroma. Amazing citrus and pine hop pairing leafs into solid pine taste. Malt profile fits hops very well, woody caramel. Lower intensity malt and pine aftertaste. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very well composed beer, and an IPA with depth of character to match the hops.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a can bought in Chicago. Pours a brilliant reddish gold with a one finger, white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is of American hops right up front. Notes of pine and grass dominate while strong citrus aromas are also present. Pineapple and orange zest come through. Very mild malt sweetness comes through as well. Flavor is strong bitterness up front with a touch of malt sweetness. Very grassy and piney and the bitterness sticks with me through the aftertaste. Hints of caramel and toast are subtle. Malt is bready and grainy. Bitterness is subdued significantly as it warms. Mouthfeel is clean and light to medium-bodied. Overall, this is a fantastic beer. A very hop-forward, clean, and fresh IPA. If you’re looking for a more malty, sweet IPA, this ain’t it.

My first time drinking Surly. Furious is smooth, not tropical or citrus-like but more of a dank, earthy IPA I suppose. Really well balanced.

Can from my summer secret santa. Pours clear dark golden/brownish with a big creamy beige head. Strong tropical fruity aroma, flowers and pine cones. Taste is light sweet malty, with a quite suitable bitterness, resiny and pine, smooth and weak creamy mouthfeel,lingering resiny, shure a good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark gold, cloudy with a little reddish tint. Nice big head. Citrusy aroma. Lots of lacing left on glass. Flovor starts off with a quick hit of citrus than straight into bitterness. As I let it warm up I’m getting a lot more citrus flavor and less bitterness. This beer proves to me that there are really good canned beers.

I’ve been drinking this for a few years now since I moved to MN and it is always a solid beer to have around. Piney, hoppy, malty, and bitter on the back end. Don’t look to this for a lot of citrus because you won’t find much (there is some orange/grapefruit in there, but it gets beat up by the bitterness), but a great example of a solid ipa nonetheless.
