COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hops? Youíll 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, itís about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.

[1029-20080108] 1pt (c/o DuctTape, w/ him, jerc, others). Sweet grapefruit hops aroma with a hint of sweat. Slightly hazy, orange amber body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Hoppy grapefruit continues in flavour with a hint of sweaty malt grain. Medium body. Nice, drinkable.

16 oz can from Stine. I was suprised this beer was so dark in color when I poured it- deep amber/brown in color with a medium off white head. Tons of citrus and some light floral hops in the aroma, with some molasses hanging around in the background. Taste- well this beer has a hefty malt backbone, but the taste is almost all citrus and floral hops, with notes of earth and wood- the malt does come through, and kind of muddles the hop character a bit. The bitterness is strong throughout and lingers nicely well after the finish. As much as I liked this, I probably would have liked it even more if they used some lighter malts. Thanks Eben!

Via trade with Cryotek. Pours a dark cloudy copper color with a large white head. Aroma is mostly citrus and hop. Overwhelming hints of bitter hops, citrus fruits, crisp spices, real malty. Finishes thick and creamy, with a bitter finish.

Wow I popped open the can (thanks MuenchenerKindl ) and the floral aroma just filled the room poured into my pint glass a nice cloudy orange brown with a full two fingers worth of head The flavors in this one really surprised me it was nicely balance for an IPA the sweetness of the malts start off then the hops, pine, citrus, kicks in Wonderful mouth feel creamy start, nice and crisp finish. what I want in an IPA I drink more if I can find more up here in the frozen north. Definitely the best beer I had from a can

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2008
Can graciously shared by DuctTape. Orange body with a good sized foamy off white head. Big hoppy aroma of grapefruit and lemon citrus has me excited to taste it. Flavour is quite hoppy, with plenty of the pleasant grapefruit and citrus, but after I get over the giddy first impression I find very little to back it up beyond some very mild supportive malt. (7+) The palate is average to thin bodied. It is very nice, but the lasting impression is that it was a bit too thin despite some impressive highlights.

Can Amber colour with a nice head. Lovely aroma of grapefruit, citrus and very floral endeed. Very hoppy and very bitter endeed. Incrediable that they can put so much hops in that can.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Poured from a 16oz can (Thank you, Tyler!) and served in a shaker. This beer poured a dark reddish amber with a one-finger thick beige head that lasted throughout the entire glass. Great looking, thick, soild lace coated the shaker. The aroma of the beer was made up of very rich caramel, toffee, grapefruit, and citrus hop goodness. The flavor consisted of smooth, creamy caramel and toffee notes, bitter grapefruit rind, and also some English malt notes. The mouthfeel was medium to full-bodied and a bit resiny, almost DIPA-like. A light amount of carbonation kept the palate alive. A hugely malty and creamy IPA, balanced nicely by a good amount of hop bitterness. A really superb effort!

On tap at Hopleaf, Chicago. I showed up expecting Darkness, but this was there instead. No matter. A solid, hoppy IPA that went down so nice amid the overcrowded bar. Total citrus taste. Wonderful.

One of the best brews I have had in a good while. Pours an orangish yellow with a nice frothy white head that leaves moderate lace on the glass. Smells nice and hoppy, lots of citrus, oranges and maybe some grapefruit. A little grassy as well. Tastes of hops and citrus. Orange peels and grass. Smooth but bitter. Not too bitter but just bitter enough to be awesome. I canít believe this beer came from a can. Good carbonation. 6.2% no problem. Love it.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Can. Deep amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet fresh hops, like hops added to boiling wort. Iím not normally a fan of hop monster beers, but there is something differnt going on here. Has all of the good citrus and piney hop flavors and plenty of bitterness, but somehow seems tolerable at 100 IBUís. The hop flavor is so fresh and the malt somehow seems to balance the whole deal somehow. Not an everyday beer for my palate, but surprisingly enjoyable.
