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.

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.

Have sampled many places from Minn. to Il. and now have gotten around to finally rating what, I believe, was first commercially described as a strong pale ale. On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. A deep amber/orange color, with a medium, off white, reducing head,& clingy lace. Aroma is tangerine, pineapple,& tads of other citrus. Resin, more citrus, malty sweetness, & a strong but pleasant hop dryness continue in the flavor to the end and beyond. One of my hop favorites since it’s inception. Has stayed very consistent since my first sampling in Minnesota.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Pours a very pretty somewhat dark orange/red with a thick foamy 1 inch head. Smells of intense fresh citrusy hops dominated the nose. First sip is all hop bitterness that is matched by a just strong enough malt backbone providing an excellent mouthfeel. Very hearty, very clean, very robust. Nice.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Aroma of grapefruit and other fruit juices. Dark clear red, big beige head, abundant lace. Lots of coniferous and citrus hops, rounded out by some vanilla in the finish. Nice hop burn on the palate, albeit a little thin-bodied.

A superb IPA with plenty of grass and citrus flavor. A long-lasting malty finish. Yummm.

gotta love microbrew in a can. pours amber with almost no head. fairly mild beer for all its talk of hops. very drinkable, mildly sweet. some citrus hops in the background, not overpowering though.

A lovely treat, shared by DrBayern (much mahalo Matt!). Poured from 16 oz can a coppery hue with a slightly off white foamy head. Aroma was of heaven, piny hop goodness, citrus mango and Scottish field grass. Flavour was of a truly remarkable beer, folks, the hype is true about this beer, it is simply a gift from God and should be consumed with much reverence. This is THE pinnacle of IPA beer, as a lover of IPA’s, I feel lucky to have experienced it. I WANT MORE...

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.

Poured from a can. Delightful floral, hoppy aroma. Serious hop kick. Outstanding beer.
