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.

Cloudy bronze, big frothy head and a piny resinous aroma. A grassy, pine and grapefruit taste with a a great balance of maltiness followed by a bitter finish. Due to all the hype Iíd heard about this beer, I had EXTREMELY high standards, and to be honest it fell a little short. Despite that, itís a fucking awesome IPA.

Citrus and spicy smell. Strong malt backbone that is refined. Hop bittering is strong but balanced well by the bready, plumy malt. Finish is evolving from bitterness and light fruit to dried fruit. Taste flows nicely ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quenches my hoppy palate with a very drinkability smooth carbonation that makes me wanna pound them down like Miller Lite when I was 18. Not as exciting as itís big brother Abrasive which plays Varsity where Iíd say this is a solid JV player...Cheers!

stevoj (2490) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Flight at MSP. Different for an IPA, some savory spice. Creamy, slick body, nice lacing. Medium golden, some honey, not a lot of hops. Mid west IPA?

(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.
