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 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!

Christian (12189) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Cloudy amber with a lasting white head leaving some lace. Strong hoppy aroma with peach, apricot and a little pine. Sweetish malty, with some peach hop flavour, lots of bitterness and a delicious juicy drinkability.

Can, thanks to kosko20. Reddish amber pour with some off-white head. Some biscuity malt and resiny hops, some citrus also. Flavor is the same, a little sweet but mostly citrusy and earthy hops. It is a little strange though, something in the aftertaste is real biscuity and when it mixes with the citrus hops it doesn’t taste very good.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Very dark amber with a soft off-white head. Big piney hop nose. Bitter right off the bat, spicy and hoppy throughout. Palate is run with carbonation, hops giving a resiny and oily quality. Defiantly bitter, unrelenting, and sharp, but if you take balance out of it, still enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2009 Quite simply the best American IPA I have ever had. The one thing that stands out is what I can only describe as "juicy" hops. Maybe it was the exquisite balance of the beer, with the malt adding some sweetness, but it almost seemed like I was biting into a fresh apricot, or one of the other citrus fruits that came out. Absolutely remarkable. Two Hearted, Alpha King...Sorry. Your reign is over. Long live Furious!!!!

At Piece in Chicago, 09.20.08. Hazy orange amber caramel, white head. Aroma is citrus hoppy: kiwi, tangerine. Flavor is crisp, nice hoppy green leaves, clean bitter finish.

Pours a deep copper with a modest head. Aroma is fainter than I’d expect considering the taste. This beer bursts with flavor and while it is quite hoppy, there is not excessive bitterness.

I’ve been drinking Furious for about 9 months now and this is a beer that just keeps getting better. I’ve actually noticed a considerable increase in hoppieness with about my last months perchases in the can. I didn’t notice it so much as when I’d had it on tap last week at the Muddy Pig.

can thanks to mashmaster. opaque ruby pour with a big caramel head. fresh floral hops on the nose with some faint malts in the back. great thickness and a huge fresh hop flavor that is incredibly delicious. slight bitter finish but this stuff is awesome.
