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.

Deep copper with a slight haze and strong off-white head. Fantastic hop medley aroma spiked with piney notes. Flavor is dry and piney with an excellent soft texture and just enough maltiness; hops are complex and well done with orange peel notes. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Virby44 for the can! Poured into a snifters showing moderately filtered dark brown with white foam around the edges. The nose doesnít show much. Light malts with a bit pine but not much else. Upon warming up, a lot of caramel malts on a very light background of pine resin. The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of light juicy pineapple with moderately intense pine resin in the background supported by a light malt backbone. Simple but tasty. The can is about two weeks old but Iím guessing this would a lot more fruit and less malt on tap.

Der_Biermann (9) - - AUG 20, 2016 does not count
The aroma is not hoppy,but not super. While you taste, you would have a different kind of feeling. Probably itís because of long storage. Light amber with small head. Very piney , fruity and hoppy. Well balanced and relatively dry finish. Very good

TH28 (379) - - JUL 15, 2016
16oz can. 6/22/16 can date. Appearance: Reddish, amber brown with a slight haze and a moderate khaki colored head. Aroma: Toasty, light caramel maltiness, with a moderate resinous and light citrus hop aroma. Taste: Rich toast, bread crust and caramel maltiness dominates the taste profile. Strong hop character throughout to balance the rich maltiness, leading with resin and finishing with a moderately strong perceived bitterness and a quick burst of grapefruit. Mouthfeel: Fairly heavy body for the style, with a medium carbonation. Finish: Hop bitterness really lingers on this one, almost stronger than during the actual tasting. Sticky resin really lingers on the tongue. Overall: Really interesting in that this beer seems to be a blend of an American IPA, Red IPA, and and English Bitter. Malt profile reminiscent of English pale ales, but the hop profile is probably suited for a IIPA. One thing is for sure, thereís nothing weak about this beer. Itís very good, but the intensity would make it tough to power through multiple in one sitting.

Beaver (1647) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2016
16 oz can. Pours slightly hazy light copper amber with a medium frothy off white head that retains fairly well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel malt, fruit and resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready caramel malt with some caramel apple fruit and a resiny hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice IPA.
