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.

One of my favorite IPAs. Great hoppy aroma, noticeable pine and citrus flavors. Wonderful on tap!

Can thanks to unclemike. Dark orange-brown with a thick finger of light tan head with great cathedral glass effect lacing. Citrus and pine hop aroma, thick malt in the nostrils, caramel and toffees. Taste is lots of malt, more toffee and butterscotch with a smaller than expected piney resin hop finish.

16 ounce can courtesy of cdumler and shared by Alraomon. Pours a bronze color with a medium head. Good head retention and thick lacing. Huge hop aroma with resin, citrus and herbal notes. Also some slight caramel and a milky character. Taste is very bitter hops, very leafy and resiny with some pine notes as well. Creamy mouthfeel and full bodied. Very nice.

Can from nbutler11. Very standard. Color and bite of a double IPA but without the alcohol. So I guess its unique... but if youre going down the halfway road, I would just prefer a Hop Knot.

Tap at the Blue Door. Pours a dark amber color with a faint off-white head. Smells and tastes of grapefruity hops and raw sap with an elemnet of caramel. Agressive, but not as inventive as I was expecting.

12 oz. can from my brother. Deep orange amber with a substantial off white head and nice lace. Huge hop aroma with assertive citrus and pine, but nicely supported by a solid malty presence. Medium body and carbonation, deliciously resinous mouthfeel. Up front caramel sweetness succumbs quickly to the hop onslaught, resulting in a very dry, bitter finish that goes on and on. Among the better IPAs.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 16 oz can, thanks again General Gao. Hazy copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Aroma is delicious blend of earthy caramel, tea leaf and orange-chocolate. Front flavor is similar with a finish of dirty grapefruit, nut shells and resiny oak. Nice frosting of lace is left behind. The medium-heavy body is smoothly carbonated, hop-tingly and dry. Definitely one of my top two IPAs.

I am just going to need pick up a case of this next time I am in Minneapolis. This pours a beautiful red hue with a good frothy white head. You can smell the pine and floral scents from across the room. The flavor is intensly bitter, and the citrus is toned down, which is greatly appricated. There is no doubt a nice bitter fruity balance happening that makes this a damn pleasure to drink.

Special thanks to Beerlando for giving me this can. Wow, this is really a fantastic IPA. Pours a dark amber with an intense pine, vanilla and grapefruit nose. The white head sticks to the glass all the way down. The flavor remains true to the style and it has a substantial mouthfeel. Bitter grapefruit flavor with an incredible smoothness and drinkability. This is almost up there with Pliny the Elder for being one of my favorite IPAs. This is delicious.
