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.

I was a bit skeptical of this product as it comes in a can. But persistent urging from a buddy persuaded me to give it a try. As I poured I found this ale to be a deep, cloudy-amber in color, with a nice thick soft looking beige foam that made up its medium head. This is an eye-catching brew. It has a mild hoppy floral aroma with fruity notes. Unlike the aroma, the excellent full favors of this IPA come storming in on the taste buds, a nice balance of bitterness and body. The mouth feel is creamy, supple, silky, and full. The finish is long and lingering leaving beautiful lacing behind. This is a most excellent IPA and the best I have presently tasted.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Can. Very murky orange-red with a small off white head. Rich candied citrus and fresh cut pine hop aromatics. Earthy, and citric/metallic hop flavors dominate. Sturdy caramel maltiness peers through resinous hoppiness. Fruity and floral hop flavors linger in the finish, with a bracing bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, rather dry.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2007 Poured a dark amber. Aroma was malty, but very nicely hopped up in citrus and pine. Taste followed suit. Appearance of head is just awesome- rocky and creamy. Very quality brew in execution, finish is malty and somewhat juicy hop with a slight note of alcohol. Very solid.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 12, 2007
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.

isnus (7) - USA - OCT 12, 2007 does not count
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.
