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.

Can. Poured a deep amber with a two-finger off-white head. Classic IPA aroma with the hops and some citrus coming through. Taste was a little different than expected from the aroma, though. The malt comes through a lot more on the palate and its sweetness takes away some of the hop punch but in a great way because the hops still really come through, just with a different balance than a lot of other IPAís. Fantastic.

Great IPA from can. This one has an interesting malt backbone to support the hop character. Very enjoyable and kind of sticks to the tounge. Enjoy!

Tasted from can. Pours an beautiful deep amber with thick slightly off white head. Aroma is pine, floral and earthy. Taste is a nice clean moderate bitterness with great malt backbone. Flavors are earthy with some pine, caramel, toffee and just a hint of citrus. Very well done and interesting tasting IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheCametron (2314) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 9, 2016
Fresh can brough back from Minnesota by John from Panasonic. Cheers Pal. Pours deep, dark Amber with a White head. Intoxicating aroma of hops just as soon as you pop the ringpull. Floral. Flavourwise, itís swimming in hops. Somewhat light on Malty caramel as a backdrop. Quite pronounced bitterness. A really delicious hop elixir.

degbert (1622) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Can. Pours a dark Amber with a shallow fine-grained off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, grapefruit pith, dust, earth, roast nuts, and bread dough. Dry and rich on the tongue, with a creamy, savory heaviness; quite substantial. IPA as almond butter. Finish is long and warm. Intense.

JorgeLee (1679) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Can, at the Capital Grille in Minneapolis. Deep amber colour, quite some crystal malts in here. Very hoppy, really quite bitter. Hop taste actually a bit muddled, a bit generic hop and lots of them. Nice enough but a bit one dimensional.

From a can at the White Sox v Red Soc game in Chicago. Good to see they have good beer at US Cellular Field. Interesting deScription that it uses Scottish malts for a hop-forward beer. This makes an interesting combination. Darker in color than most single IPAs. Clean flavor with nice malt presence and bitter finish. Iíd still take Two-hearted over this one, but this is pretty damn good beer.
