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.

WOW. Poured a dark amber color with good head and great lacing. Aroma was pine and citrus stong aroma. Flavor was much the same but very well balanced with the caramel malts. This is a solid IPA

Mildly soapy and oxized hop nose with a touch of diacetyl. Astringent and vegetative palate with very bitter mid-palate.

Nice balance of bitterness and body. Grapefruit tones, very very drinkable. It’s bitter but has enough body that its very enjoyable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Draft @ Brewery: Amber color, thick white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe clean grapefruit, not too intense. The flavor is fruity and citrusy with oat and grapefruit. The finish is mellow, light bitterness, moderate body, clean, nice.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 Pours a dark amber with a dense, creamy off-white head, Hops-driven aroma with orange, earth, spice, and a bit of grain. Flavor is malt-driven but not sweet, with secondary hops flavors--earth, spice, tertiarycitrus--and lots of bitterness with stick around through the long finish.

Duane was kind enough to save a can of this for me. Thanks Dad! This is a palate bruiser, not for the faint of heart (or tongue). Deep red pour, decent head retention with some good lacing. Citrus and piney hop flavor. Hop resins just linger around on your tongue and palate and make this one quite a treat to drink.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2007
Bottled. Thx Marsiblursi. Redish colour, average sized head. Lots of grapey, piney hops in aroma along with black tea, with solid malts backing it up. Caramelly, toffeeish maltiness is sensed, but most dominant are the hops here, with grapes and mandarines. Bitterness comes early and is pretty edgy, salty. Spiderweb bitterness. Pretty light odied at this abv-level, would gain from more maltiness in body. Long, long bitterness.

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 (Can, thanks oslo2116 and Guerde) Pours a beautiful deep red. Off white head. Fat citric hop aroma with grapefruit up front. Also some resin, fruity black tea and some floral notes. Some tropical tones of mango, passionfruit and starfruit. Toasted malt with cookie dough and caramel tones. Hints of glue and rubber sole. Grapefruit flavour with a slim malt backbone of light caramel and cookies. Also some tropical fruit tones. Soft and round mouthfeel. Full lingering grapfruity and resiny bitterness. A very good, rather standard-ish IPA.

Can tasted at Saarlander’s SoCal tasting with saarlander, cquiroga, dirty_martini & kittiesandbeer, JohnC and others. Full 1-2" head of varing bubble sizes, that fades at a medium rate. Fun and interesting raw hop aroma. A nice little source bitterness covers the tongue.
