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.

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.

I read a lot about this beer as being tops of the charts. This IPA I think is overated for any form on top 50 charts. Yes, itís good, but a little bland. No single thing sticks out.

BeerInHeaven (314) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2016
pours a rich copper amber with a decent beige head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Great taste. initially bright then hoppy bitter kicks in. Beautiful balance between a good malt backbone and a hoppy citrus bitter. Hints of mandarin orange and grapefruit. Pleasant moderately bitter linger after the finish. Excellent beer!

COD 12/1/15. Pours a lovely amber with a strong garnet cast. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Quite outstanding nose of orange, orange rind, tropical notes (mango, pineapple), subtle pine and even more subtle spicy spruce. Underneath is a rich biscuit base that is bready with soft caramel hints. Light medium body that is quite smooth and has creamy aspects. Normal carbonation levels with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a stronger finish. The flavor profile is outstanding with a laid back bitterness and intensity, fairly complex and well balanced. Hops arrive in a blended fashion and never really separate, although orange is noticeable from the middle on. The middle has a moderate bitterness that is rind and pine based. A solid malt sweetness balances from the middle on, which allows the orange to shine. The finish is dry and a rind bitterness lingers. As the finish fades, a subtle spicy spruce note arrives.

Can. Pours dark golden with thick tan head. Aroma is pine, citrus and skunky. Taste is sweet and hoppy with a warm copper citrus hop finish. Pretty good but.

bobinlondon (1276) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
I pint can, many thanks to Rian (Thirstybird). Amber/ orange with an off white head. Resinous floral aroma. Flavour is a delicious multi US hop citrus cocktail, backed up by sweet juicy malts. Palate is oily and pleasantly bitter with smooth natural carbonation. Lovely.

TattooJack (407) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Poured fro the tall boy can of a 4-pack, clear dark orange with lots of chunky foam. Taste is lip smacking, resin, tropical, sticky, spicy, & dry, this drinks heavier than a 6.2%. This is probably the tenth 4-pack Iíve purchased of furious and every time I get too buzzed to rate it, that in itself is a vote of confidence.

kerenmk (3621) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 22, 2015
Can shared at a tasting at Maxí place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery! Hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of old hops, skunk, fruity and a little old. Tastes hoppy, bitter and skunky. Light-to-medium body, green finish.

16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured deep orange, clear, big off white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus fruit and hops. Taste is also bitter, lots of citrus fruit but well balanced by malts making it quite smooth. This a great IPA, super enjoyable and certainly very enjoyable.

Can pour copper deep orange with moderate ecru head. Nose pine, resin, light dank, some grass. Nice hop nose. Taste moderate bitter bite up front then pine and dank. Mid palate balancing sweetness. Nose seems bigger than the flavor. Lingering pleasing bitter finish.

superspak (3988) - Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2015
16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/20/2015. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy reddish orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light roast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light roast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and minimal hop astringency after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. Despite the darker malt and appearance; this was still very dry with minimal overall sweetness as expected for a west coast style IPA. A highly enjoyable offering.
