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.

16 oz can. 6.6%. Canned on 09/22/15. Thanks a million Timo A! Clear red amber color with a tiny off-white head. Citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness, freshness, citrus and some dry malt in an amazing aroma. Yummy! The flavor is... super yummy! Fresh hops, moderate bitterness, citrus, pine, oily fresh hop cones and dryness in the flavor. Very fresh! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I donít think of myself as a hop head but I really enjoyed this, maybe because it is balanced with a good deal of maltiness. As noted elsewhere, pours copper colored with a good head that lasts well. Drinks smooth on the palate with strong spruce notes and a remarkably pleasant bitterness. Well done Surly.

Hoprider (236) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
App: clear copper brown with an off white head. Nose: pretty restrained but nice vinous hops and caramel malt. Fruity. Taste: solid malt base to carry the hop load. Evereting in good ballance. MF: medium with good carb Aftertaste: somewhat bitter but overall very nice and drinkable IPA.

574deadzone (1293) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a slightly hazed deep crimson with a fair khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves some crashing waves and splotches of foamy lace. Nose involves deep grapefruit and dankness reminiscent of Amarillo, some evergreen and spruce, rich malt notes including caramel, biscuit, berries, and toast. Maybe even some bubblegum. Decently sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, fair action, lush with hop oil, finishing on the dry side with herbal leaves. A nice red IPA, drinkable, lots of qualities complementing one another, and very expressive.

mgajdaczewa (1123) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 30, 2015
W aromacie początkowo uderzają żywice, půźniej lekkie nuty tropikalne, z naciskiem na ananasa, karmelowo - zbożowa podbudowa słodowa, intensywnie i świeżo. Podobnie w smaku, żywice, tropiki, mniej cytrusůw, solidna słodowość, balans, długa, nieco zalegająca w popiołowy sposůb goryczka, choć i tak nie psuje to ogůlnego wrażenia. Bardzo dobra robota, acz piwo nie olśniewające. Thanks @vipinvelp

Clear amber color with foamy head. Strong aroma of hops. Like it a lot. Heavy bitter taste, long bitter finish. Heavy with everything, but itís well balanced and easy to drink.

Can @ Rowdy Rebel Revel, SÝnderborg. Pours hazy rich amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt & hops, with notes of citrus and fruit and some estery touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of needles and round, fruity and malty touches. Linhering, bitter aftertaste. Good.

Hazy amber, big white froth. Piney aroma with caramel. Juicy, fruity hop flavour, well combined with caramel. Slightly rough in a nice way. Lasting bitter finish. Really nice.
