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.

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.

Poured a big head, mostly diminishing, excellent lacing with a light brown color. The aroma is hops, pine, citrus-grapefruit/lime. The body is cloudy a golden copper color. The initial flavor is Hops, bitter, creamy very good. The body is medium and the texture creamy.

Can thanks to mreusch. Pours a slightly cloudy dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops and grapefruit. Flavor of citrus, sour grapefruit, lemons, iced tea, grassy hops. An alright IPA but somewhat one dimensional. Doesnt make the great IPA cut for me.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 Can. Aroma grassy, citrusy, grapefruity, with ample sweet malt behind. Flavor the same, lots of both the sweet malt and the grassy hop character with citrus in there as well, very dry-feeling hops, not very oily/resiny. Very good, though the combined components of heavy grass and big, sweet malt were somehow just a bit off for me. 7-4-7-4-14/3.6

Rerate from tap at ACBF. Aroma of grass, grapefruit, mango, awesomeness. Flavor continues on the tropical path with high bitterness and fluffy, sweet malt. Very good.

Pint can courtesy of theisti. Pours a gorgeous hazy red/orange color with a small receding white head. Huge citrus hop nose. Intense grapefruit flavor up front balanced with a nice malt middle. Then finishes with more bitter hop bite. Very good. Wish it were available in New England.

Poured a nice hazy orange color into a frosty pint glass with no head. Aroma was incredibly hoppy and slightly citrusy and pulled me right in. Flavor was woody and assaults the palate with hops. One of my personal favorite IPA’s.
