COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hops? You’ll 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, it’s about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.

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, it’s swimming in hops. Somewhat light on Malty caramel as a backdrop. Quite pronounced bitterness. A really delicious hop elixir.

degbert (1616) - 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 (1675) - 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. I’d still take Two-hearted over this one, but this is pretty damn good beer.

Tap at Burger Burger, mall of America. Pours deep amber, copper, clear. Large frothy head. Aroma is orange, pineapple, caramel malt, bright citrus notes and a mild dankness. Flavor is orange, hoppy, pine, grapefruit. pronounced malt backbone. Fairly bitter finish. Reminds me of two hearted. An excellent staple for a brewery.

There are a lot of IPA in Seattle. Not me of them are as good as this. Smooth (for IPA), citrusy, light sweetness. If you’re not drinking a blonde this summer, drink this! With or without food!
