4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint can, contents poured into a Stone OG tulip glass.
Appearance is a cloudy deep amber hue with ruby highlights, huge off-white head of craggy foam, thick sticky lacing.
Smell is honey sweetened grapefruit, balanced by a fair amount of caramel and bread malts, slight alcohol.
Taste is dominated by sweet and sour grapefruit hops that are kept in check by a prominent malt profile of breads, caramel, and roast, finishes dry and malty.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, watery texture with an oily resin coating, mild carbonation.
A solid IPA at 6%abv, well-balanced with a surprising malt presence, this definitely has less hops than what we find with SoCal IPAs and it is refreshing to find an example of malts playing nice with hops.

Pours a dark amber hue with foamy, white head and some lacing. Tastes quite bitter but still balanced. Hints of malts, citrus, and pine. A very bitter beer but still has a great flavor.

On Tap @ Binny’s South Loop. Really enjoyable. Pour quite a dark amber glowing color, almost brown. Head is creamy and light tan in color, lots of beutiful lace. Malty, grapefruit, caramel, toffee, lots of piney hops, bitter, citrus, and very well balanced. Slightly earthy and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very good, enjoyed every moment of this wouderfully crafted beer.

16 oz. can - thanks to biegman for the trade; pours dark amber with spotty white head; slight haze throughout; a rich, malty beast w/ bitter, dank citrus aromas; rich and creamy with a ton of body; hops are muted (in a good way) with the thick, juicy malts; a great IPA

I’ve had draft and out of the pounder cans. This is a good looking beer with good hop taste. Has some body to it. For the price, its a good find.
