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.

16 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a cloudy dark copper color. The head is quite good; a one finger off-yellow shade thatís very creamy looking. It retains acceptably, but not amazingly. Still, it does leave nice specks of lacing on the glass. S: At first whiff, it seems like an IPA heavy in both caramel and pine (which arenít always my bag), but this seems to have something else to set it apart from the pack. Maybe itís the fact that grapefruit notes are fairly distinct here, or maybe itís the fact that this has some nice fruit esters to them. All I know is that I really like the aroma. T: The first thing I notice is a bit of caramel and toffee, right up until the hops take over. The hop profile is more piny/floral than grapefruity. I swear the finish is almost like grape jelly in a way. This is probably the calling card of this brew - the fruit esters, when they pop up, are fantastic. And after a while, I even note some peanut butter flavors on the back end...thatís right, folks, this beer kind of tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This is a solid, complex, yet unexceptional IPA otherwise; but damn. I canít tell if the PB&J flavors are an awesome feature or Iím going insane. M: A bit thick in body, with the carbonation giving it a bit more coarseness than I would like. Once that calms down, it becomes *very* soft for an IPA. Good drinkability, but it could also be drier. O: Iíll take any chance I can get to try this beer, so naturally I had to take a shot on a can that wasnít spectacularly fresh. At first, it struck me as just another IPA; after a while, its depth (and unusual yet pleasing notes) really start to impress me. If I ever see this again, Iíll gladly give it a second chance.

Bright hop nose and taste. Nice deep color. Chewy body with a substantial malt body and alcohol to suppor the massive hopping. Bitter in a good way. Yum

b3shine (6269) - Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2015
16 oz can to pint (canned on 03/10/15). Looks solid; malty though. A fairly transparent deep orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes hops and caramel with a sticky medium-bodied mouthfeel. Could be lighter and dryer, but enjoyable nonetheless.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is Clear orange with a big white head and sticky lacing. Big grapefruit, candied oranges, some grass notes, light cat piss and weed notes in the aroma. Taste is weed, orange peel, grass, some grapefruit, bread, and herbal hops with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Tasty, Iím just not a huge simcoe fan.

Strong beer with good malt backbone. It is heavy in the hops. Almost to much bitter hops for my taste.

Piney, citrusy and bitter. Terrific lacing, great ruby color, and the taste stays on your lips for hours afterward.

Golden orange, cloudy with an ample tan head. Apricot or pineapple, honey, lightly floral, some pine resin. Quite bitter backed by nice amount of biscuity malt sweetness. Medium body, fairly oily, quite acidic, lively, longer acrid finish. Excellent.
