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.

Braudog (5693) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery. This is a big, ruddy red beer. The aroma and flavors are big as well ... chewy, caramel malt, piled on with a solid, hoppy twist. Not sure itís a "100", but itís damn good. (#5652, 8/28/2014)

Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Medium brown body with a white head. Piny aroma with toffee and fruity hops, taste is light sweet, caramel malt and fruity hops. Intense bitterness, dry hoppy finish. Nice one.

ACHops (675) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap @ Toronado Seattle. Pours bright orangish brown with thin lacy white head. Aroma is big caramel malt with light floral citrusy hops. Taste is roasty sweet caramel malt with balanced earthy citrusy hops. Quite malty for an IPA, but well balanced with plenty of hops to balance. Much less hop driven than a west coast IPA, but big and flavorful nonetheless. Super stoked to finally try a Surly beer.

Aroma is floral hops, pine and a hint of candy/sugar. The flavor is citrus, relatively light grapefruit, malts, mild hop resin and a long and very bitter/dry finish.

geeklimit (171) - USA - AUG 14, 2014
Pours clear dark amber with a lace head. Light citrus hop aroma. Amazing citrus and pine hop pairing leafs into solid pine taste. Malt profile fits hops very well, woody caramel. Lower intensity malt and pine aftertaste. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very well composed beer, and an IPA with depth of character to match the hops.

Poured from a can bought in Chicago. Pours a brilliant reddish gold with a one finger, white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is of American hops right up front. Notes of pine and grass dominate while strong citrus aromas are also present. Pineapple and orange zest come through. Very mild malt sweetness comes through as well. Flavor is strong bitterness up front with a touch of malt sweetness. Very grassy and piney and the bitterness sticks with me through the aftertaste. Hints of caramel and toast are subtle. Malt is bready and grainy. Bitterness is subdued significantly as it warms. Mouthfeel is clean and light to medium-bodied. Overall, this is a fantastic beer. A very hop-forward, clean, and fresh IPA. If youíre looking for a more malty, sweet IPA, this ainít it.

My first time drinking Surly. Furious is smooth, not tropical or citrus-like but more of a dank, earthy IPA I suppose. Really well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
