Like Hops? Youíll 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, itís about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.

Can. Pours a medium copper color with a two finger thick beige head leaving some nice lacing. Nose of citrus, pine and resin with sweet malt balancing things out. Finishes medium in body and quite sticky. Overall a great IPA as expected.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 On tap. Poured a dark amber with a light brown head. Aroma is very hoppy, dominated by a piney aroma from the hops. Lots of hops, I detected a underlying fruity flavor.

Hazy copper with a medium tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of Caramel, citrus and floral hops with a bit of pine. Nicely balanced flavor with some citrus and floral hops accentuated by some bready malt and caramel. Moderately bitter and abrasive but overall some pretty good stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2009 Such a great beer. Amazing color, bracing bitterness with a full hop flavor without bothering to go into DIPA-land. Intense red, great head, smells lovely. Not too sweet, but really just sucks you in.

This beer has an angry-sounding name, and itís fitting because it was "mad" good! Can acquired via trade. Incredible crimson-amber color with a lasting two-finger off-white head. One of the best-looking IPAs Iíve seen. Great citrus/floral hop aroma. Flavor is somewhat unique with caramel malt mixed with bready notes, balancing a grapefruity and floral hop profile. Palate medium for the style. Great IPA overall.

Strykzone (6764) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Thanks Shep. Poured from a can. Dark caramel color with a nice long lasting tan head. Busy carbonation. Big hop nose with citrus and floral notes. The flavor is the same with a big hop profile. Floral and grapefruit. Interesting choice of malt there is a light roasted effect. Some biscuit, as well. It is very bitter from the first sip. Finish is more complex fruit. There arenít many IPAs better than this one! So well crafted.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 I love the IPAs with the heavy citrus hops aroma and the taste to match. This is my favorite beer of the year so far.

On tap at the Happy Gnome. Pours slightly hazy orange amber with a nice frothy off-white head. Huge nose of citrus, pine, and floral hops. Decent balance from caramel and biscuity malts in the taste. Nice citrus hop finish.

can at Fort Wayne tasting - Pours hazy orange with a lingering off-white head. The aroma is mostly citrus hops. Flavor is big citrus hops with some mild malt backing. Itís medium bodied and of course finishes with long lasting hops bitterness. Itís good, donít get me wrong, but given the rating I thought Iíd enjoy it more.
