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.

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 didnít 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.

Received in a trade from BVery -- Can poured into a pint glass. Pour resulted in sticky lasting foam that laces the glass very nicely. Aroma is a little disappointing, Mild Citrus and pine nose. Flavor is similar bitter hops initially and a strong malt backbone flavor hops are a little lacking. Mouthfeel is great. Overall I was expecting more from such a highly rated/regarded IPA. By no means is this a bad IPA, it is a very good IPA.

Can thanks to the Cruise Director (aka markduccomun). Pours a light reddish amber with a light off white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, caramel. Bready caramel malt flavor, with biting "furious" citrusy pine hop cutting in midway to the finish. Smooth palate, real hoppy amber meets IPA.. strong malt backbone.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured once in a pint glass and once in a tulip. There wasnít any difference. The appearance was always a nice golden orange to amber color with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The lacing slid into the beer. The smell had a nice sweet maltiness running underneath of a nice citrusy/piney hoppiness. The taste was basically the same that lead to a decent sweet aftertaste and a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium in body and holds a decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation was slightly smooth as it didnít really seem to hold its own as far as sharpness for a normal AIPA. Overall, good AIPA for the most part, but this seems to be just a tad too smooth as I didnít get the normal pummeling on my tongue from an AIPA. If anything, this is still worthy and maybe I hope to try this fresher some day.

Great hoppy goodness. One of best in- can brews, but suffers a bit on the head as a consequence. Best option available at MSP or Target Center when in the Twin Cities. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft poured into pint glass. The name says it all here - this is a hop heavy, deep amber IPA that amps up the IBUs whilst maintaining a malt backbone that keeps something of a balance here. But letís be honest - balance is not what you are looking for here. Some sweetness on the back end that does itsí best to level out the bitterness.

Can dated 5/13/14 poured into a Duvel tulip. Appearance-Pours a hazy copper orange. A inch thick off white head shrinks to coat the top, leaving moderate lacing. Aroma- Aroma is of sticky tropical fruit. It reminds me of a melon salad with waves of caramel sweetness that cut through. Taste-Piney hops hit up front. The beer turns a bit jucier, with tropical fruit flavors. There is a lingering bitterness from the hop hit and there are some caramel flavors as well. Mostly bitter hops though. Palate-The beer is fairly balanced, albeit hop forward. As expected, the finish is very dry. Overall-Despite the local hype, I consider this to be a good beer, but nothing special. It has great flavors, but lacks a finer balance which detracts from the experience.
