Sampled at Winterfest 2012. A very nice extra bit of complexity added to this already lovely IPA.

On tap at brewery. Pours cloudy amber with a quick off white head. Aroma is hops and wood with a faint fruit. Taste is bitter hops dark cherry and dry wood. Palate is medium and creamy with a dry finish. Well done and tasty.

Tap. Slightly hazy orange pour, hoppy bitter aroma. Flavor was creamy bitter hops, a little light sweetness, and very woody and dry on the aftertaste. One of my favorite beers of Darkness Day 2011.

From a firken at Darkness day into a plastic Surly cup...This beer is a much darker than regular furious, almost takes an cherry wood or dark amber color. A big tan head with grear retention and lacing...The aroma brings out a lot of the wood notes, much more so than the taste. Oak, with citrus and hops...The taste is not as successful leaving me to prefer the regular furious by a wide margin. Its a lighter version of furious in terms of hop with a wood finish that just doesn’t add anything. I wanted to love this beer, but just like it.

Winterfest 11. From notes. YUM. Tea-bagged version. Lot like the normal furious, though it seemed like the hop bitterness was more mellow while the flavors were all still there (and then some). Cherry wood is evident, adding a nice dryness to the beer that really rounds it out nicely. Just great. Hope to get to try this one again sometime!

Winterfest ’11. Pours hazy orange with white head on cask, aroma was amazing, notes of grapefruit, orange, some pine, with big cherry wood, complimented by nice caramel notes. Big piney, grapefruit hops up front, as usual, caramel middle, but finishes with big cherry wood character, and dries out very nice with a dry and bitter finish. One of the highlights of the event for me.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Minnesota Winterfest 2011. Copper color with a large head. Malty aroma with some dry hop character. Sweet and slightly biscuity malt taste. Light orange and hop bitterness. Seems less hoppy than usual, but in all fairness, I had this just after Abrasive.

Cask. Pours a really nice orange amber color with a nice white head. Excellent aroma of both citrus rind and slight pine notes in the nose along with sweet cherry aromas. Being that I am so used to drinking Furious, the cherries really stick out to me on this one and are a nice compliment to the hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and a bit chewy. Sweet cherry up front flavors give way to vibrant hops taste. Citrus rind, grapefruit, and pine all in one. Really well balanced. Very tasty.

On cask at Darkness Day. Nearly missed out on this one, but managed to get one of the last samples. The aroma was pretty similar to regular Furious, with elements of pink grapefruit, mandarin orange, cut grass, rich pale malts, and black pepper, but with an added tropical element, and a lighter wood character (in terms of the kind of wood, not quantity). In the mouth, it still retained that classic resiny c-hop blast of grapefruit, lemon, and gooseberry along with the distinct Golden Promise malt character, but the wood aging seemed to smooth out some of the rougher edges in terms of both palate and flavour. Firm bitterness, but very smooth in the mouth, thanks to the cask format. Excellent stuff!
