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.

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.

Can. A amber beer with a big tan head. The aroma is light caramel malt, pine, hops, so is the taste, almost harsh from the heavy hopping, but I´m a hophead, so ít´s ok. Medium body with a bitter, very dry hoppy finish. Maybe the best can beer I have ever had.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Rich red amber with a light tan head, relatively dense, thinning via popping largish bubbles. Grassy floral hops with a light fruity, toasty malty sweetness. Lively with a bit of chocolate? Full creamy mouth, average carbonation. Smooth. Big grassy peppery slightly piney hops. rich full sweet fruity malt. A touch of toast and caramel. Lingering floral to piney hop bitterness. Creamy, big ass hoppy beer.

Very strong IPA with some smooth malt sweetness, drinks easy. Smells and tastes like pine needles which can be overpowering to unexperienced beer drinkers. 4pack cans runs about $9 but worth trying.

Had it on tap at Surly Brewery! The beer has a copper color and it is intensely hoppy! The citrus hops are dominate in the bouquet of hops that they used. Was very drinkable considering the intensity of the hops!

Sampled at Chris_o’s shindig: great grapefruit and pine hoppiness; somewhat thick, chewy and underattenuated, but quite bitter finish; lingering and overly sharp.

muddy amber, whispy beige head, huge sweet carmel malt and grapefruit aroma, big body, sweet malt flavor with lots of grapefruit character, sticky sweetness, long bitterness

Mode: can
Source: trade

pouring much clearer and with a bigger head and lots of drippy lace, otherwise still the nice sweet grapefruit and caramel beer, more earthy bitterness keeping it in balance, picking up some additional malt character like a touch of biscuit and vienna malts, a great drinking beer but the bitterness does tend to build up on the tongue

Holy crap! This beer is awesome! It’s bright red with a full head and just loaded with hops. Not an everyday beer, but always enjoyable.

#3 and the last in the roommate is awesome and bought me surly tasting. 16oz can. Billowing, large beige head sits on a dark brown/red body. Aroma is a huge amount of hops, pine and citrus in origin, carmel, light roasted malt, pleasant light fruits, caramel, a little nutty. Flavor is a lot of pine hops, but with a pretty strong malt background, orange, and other light citrus fruit, some caramel, though the hops overpower everything else. Big bodied and creamy. Again very fresh and appealing,

Can/draft. Pours an amber-red with eggshell colored head. Hoppy aroma has a very nice bouquet. Taste is initially strong hops with some pine and grapefruit. Decent medium body with not too much maltiness. Dry, hoppy finish.
