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.

Can. Deep amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet fresh hops, like hops added to boiling wort. Iím not normally a fan of hop monster beers, but there is something differnt going on here. Has all of the good citrus and piney hop flavors and plenty of bitterness, but somehow seems tolerable at 100 IBUís. The hop flavor is so fresh and the malt somehow seems to balance the whole deal somehow. Not an everyday beer for my palate, but surprisingly enjoyable.

neongolden (595) - LinkŲping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
(On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Jan 11 2015) Pours clearing dark coppery Amber with pillowy off white head, lingers with lace. Aroma nice and fruity IPA style, grapefruit to the fore with tropical fruit - pineapple, papaya, melon? - nice and malty with rich bready caramel. On the palate it was surprisingly malt driven, again caramel and lightly bready with cereal grains. There is a round reserved fruitiness that had grapefruit and orange peel and flesh, creamy tropical fruit , but muted quite quickly. Pretty big resinous bitterness but light flavours from middle on, mostly just dry! Slight pine sap. Average mouthfeel and carb. A bit disappointed with this one given the hype. Bitterness and maltiness for sure. Flavours donít really seem to match the best IPAs Iíve had. Still I will happily give it another shot.

greenhorn1 (832) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 11, 2015
This is like Sculpin out West, very popular beer and a good easy drinking IPA. citrus notes and hoppy. It pours darker then most IPAís. Nice strong bitter finish

dfroms (377) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Can dated 11/18, poured into tulip. Pours reddish amber with small head and tons of sticky lacing. Aroma is toasted grains, root beer, grapefruit peel, roasted orange, bubble gum, pine, cola. On the malty side. Taste is orange syrup, pine needles, cola, caramel, rye bread, and an astringent, mouth-drying finish of pine and grapefruit peel. Full mouthfeel is a highlight. Pretty good.

VeinAle (24) - Clearwater, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2015
This is a huge IPA. Powerful hop profile with the perfect malt to match. Beautiful beer, reddish amber with a chunky head that dissipates. The hops and sweetness round out with the malt. I could certainly drink too much of this one.

neuromatt (1218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
16 oz can from Andyís Liquors in Rochester, Minnesota, served in a stem glass. Pours clear orange-amber with a moderate tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of resin, tropical fruit, pine and grapefruit, along with medium toasted malts and hints of toffee and bread. The flavour is Intensely bitter throughout, with a huge resinous happiness that builds towards a long, bitter finish. Notes of citrus peel, tropical fruit and lightly toasted malts come through nicely as well. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice IPA with an intensely bitter hop profile. Though the aroma is impressive, the brewers have clearly emphasized the early-addition hops on this one. 2014-12-17

Saeglopur (482) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 25, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm.
Copper, quite clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Aroma of citrus, peach, dark berries, pine, some tropical fruits, tea.
Taste follows this pretty much, with some more caramel malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a strong carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, piney.

Really tasty! One of those darker IPAs, with interesting dark fruit and tea like notes. Greatly balanced and really quaffable. Not my favourite IPA, but a fantastic one for sure!

On tap at Stone. Clear Amber pour with an off white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Tasty grapefruit Hoo notes dominate. A sturdy caramel malt backbone gives balance. Good body and mouthfeel.
