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.

Thanks to Tytoanderso for this sweet bonus. Pours a deep amber orange with thick off-white head. Aroma of mostly citrus with slight floral hops, pine, and grass. Flavor is surprisingly complex, but didn’t quite have the hops bite I was expecting. Not a bad thing though, because this is really one very great IPA. Definitely gonna be trying to get my hands on this again.

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!
