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.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2008
On tap at the Dock Cafe in Stillwater, MN. Another beer rating succumbed to the usually helpful text message cleanup on my cell phone. This was a strong IPA, with the hops kick of a Double IPA but apparently not the alcohol content. Big, fresh, rindy, grapefruity hops blasted through the creamy, soft, bready, somewhat sweet malt backbone. Lingering bitter finish.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Can, courtesy Guerde. Perfect pour: dark brownish red, big carbonated sparkling white head, and tons of dry, cotton-like lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, but coated with citrus. Semi-sweet chocolate notes, too. Pine is masked by an overall balance. Hops hit the tongue first, and the malty body takes over soon after. A harmony of pine, citrus, mango, caramel, and vanilla. Medium-bodied. Sticky and refreshing. Easy to drink and extremely balanced.

Wow. Nicely done. Big hop flavor with perfect malty back. Really well balanced. Really bitter hoppy finish. I wish I could get this all the time.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours a bright hazy amber color with a big, thick two-finger head that hangs around for quite a while. Lacing is excellent. Smell is dominated by big floral and citrus hops dominated by grapefruit and lemon zest. Balanced out with a nice underlying malty sweetness. As in the smell, huge citrus hops up front balanced out by a bready malt flavor. Sweet caramel taste gives way to a piney hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel coats the mouth in hoppy goodness but still stings the tongue with bitterness. Medium body with solid carbonation. This is one of the better IPAs Iíve tasted and would make this a staple in my fridge if I had access to it. Big and hoppy but with a nice malty balance, this one is quite nice.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2008
Can pours a hazy dark amber/red color with a thick off white head. Has a sweet caramel pine smell. It blends together nicely. Has a medium mouthfeel. Tastes like sweet caramel candy, pine, and has a nice sticky hop aftertaste. Overall I really like this beer and would have it on hand for trips all the time because of the can.

yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 27, 2008
Can, from trade with akevitt. It pours a brownish golden body, unclear, with a quite small off-white head. Hoppy nose, rather intense, borderline catpee, as well as sweetish. Nice though. Really heavy on the malty flavors, still thereís enough hops to give it a citrusy, resiny flavor. Quite intense flavor, good, but a bit too much of everything in a strange way, I usually really enjoy that. Full body, and an astringently bitter finish lasting for a good while. Nice beer, but as mentioned, a bit too much. (080305)

Lothore (602) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a deep reddish brown with a 2 finger head that sticks around for quite a while and leaves a huge amount of lacing. S- Smells consists of sweet piney hops, orange, citrus, and underlying hints of pear. T- Taste is citrusy and acidic with a bitter hoppiness at the end. Small hints of pine. M- Mouthfeel is actually a bit watery but extremely crisp. D- This is highly drinkable, the fact that its creamy and slightly watery makes it go down easy with the crispness leaving you wanting more.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 [Can 4/26/09] Pours copper reddish/orange with a fine head. The scotch malt is easily identified in the aroma and flavor. Piney and pretty bitter, dry. Sticky body, with soda like carbonation. Reminds me of Moylanís Hopsickle. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [rerate can, thanks to WisconsinBeer!] Pours a darker copper/red, clear, with a very sticky foamy off-white head. Aroma is brightly hoppy, very piney, resinous, honey malt sweetness, loads of green pine needles. Flavor follows, super piney, sweet cotton candy, great aggressive hop kick, quite bitter but also very sweet so the high IBUís are fairly balanced, seemingly like a double IPA. Medium bodied, sugary watery feeling with sharp carbonation.
