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.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2009 can. nice carbonation with a dirty yellow tinged head. wonderful caramel color, flavor is resinous and bitter, slick on the palate. butterness is shortlived, a playful tease. hard to believe something at 99 IBUs can be called ’smooth’, but this is...or maybe im just jaded. very sessionable, largely due to its excellent balance. all that hype about the malt.....it aint hype.

BeerBunker (800) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Pours amber with a foamy white head. Heavy on the carbonation. Aroma was of hops, citrus, and earthiness. Taste was of hops and oranges, with caramel malt and grass. Starts off extremely bitter, but ends with a sweet lingering citrus taste. Goddamn, this is a good one.

Can from Mashmaster, thanks! Dark amber color. Oily hops and pineapple in the aroma. Piney and oily hops, challenged by tangerine and loads of pineapple. Long aftertaste. Excellent!

Can from wisconsinbeer...thanks a million! Pours a nice reddish amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is delicious! Citrus, pine, and malt. Flavor is so damn good. Sweet, hoppy, thick, and smooth. Citrus and piney hops hit you with a rush of matls. This is one fine IPA. World class.

Can thanks To G-money! Poured hazy amber color with little white head. Aroma was awesome, Floral hops, citrus, and pine. Taste was similar with great texture and very smooth. Balanced very well and could be an everyday beer easily.

Thanks to beerbelly, I mean hellbilly I have reached another milestone in my lifelong obsession to score 10K beers before I die. This beer I chose for a reason. It comes in a can. I drank it from the can. I have no idea what it looks like or if it has a gorgeous lasting head or not. I can however smell it and it does smell of the IPA style. I drink from the can and I enjoy it. I do however think this beer is highly over rated. Considering th abv, balance, overall complexity and finish I have come to a determination that it is average. But, it’s one of the best canned beers I’ve ever had. Thanks Josh.

16 oz. can courtesy of a trade with mashmaster. Pours a cloudy amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left a layer of foam with each sip. Strong aroma of pine, grapefruit and caramel. The flavor is similar, although it is more dominated by the pine and there is less of a caramel malt base than the aroma would suggest. Bitter hoppy finish. Truly a beer for the hopheads!
