COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hops? Youll 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, its about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.

On tap at The Local Option in Chicago. Pours dark brown with a thick off-white head. The aroma is earthy, piny and floral hop goodness along with a solid deep toasted malt balance. Medium / thick body that is smooth for the style with some nice semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with very earthy hops, pine cones and the sturdy malt of the aroma. The finish is sticky with resiny hops. Very nice IPA ~ wish I could get it in my area.

Wow, big thanks to grimreeser for an excellent in-person trade in Brussels. This was the first one I opened. Can poured an impressively dark reddish-orange with a thin whitish head. Nice fruity-hop nose on there, with grapefruit and passion fruit, with some pine backdrop. After the big hoppy nose the flavor was refreshingly subdued, only lightly sweet but fruity and moderately bitter... Pretty refreshing, good balance, with nothing sticking out too much. Just tasted good. Both flavorful and resfreshing, so its right up my alley.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2009 Wow. Good beer in a can. Thats a first. Pours a hazy copper with minimal head. Flavor has notes of banana, as well as grassy hops. Somewhat spicy and piney - but not overly so. A good IPA - still strange to think this came in a can though. FRESH: This stuff is even more amazing! Bumping this up a notch, as it has some nice dank notes in it.

BOLTZ7555 (3022) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Damn...nice pine and citrus nose and a burnt orange body that bordered on blood red. Very small head and minimal lacing. Flavor, unfortunately, is all hops...completely one-dimensional bitterness with nothing to balance it out. Better as it warms...aggressive is an understatement with this one!!!

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2008
From can, courtesy of dpjuart. Holy cat pee and grapefruit! Apricot, grass. Vibrant, with ozone. Mild amber clear with off-white to tan lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Bitter beer with tons of hops. Light sweet malt, but mostly lots of bitter. A bit harsh in the finish, but not too bad.

Clear amber with a thin beige head. Smells deliciously hoppy with fruity, floral and herbal notes. Grassy, clean, smooth taste. Flowery and grapefruit notes. A tasty hoppy beer.

Tastes like your sucking on a tea bag. I think I overdosed on hops. Not subtle at all.

Silphium (3196) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2008
On tap at the Dock Cafe in Stillwater, MN. Another beer rating succumbed to the usually helpful text message cleanup on my cell phone. This was a strong IPA, with the hops kick of a Double IPA but apparently not the alcohol content. Big, fresh, rindy, grapefruity hops blasted through the creamy, soft, bready, somewhat sweet malt backbone. Lingering bitter finish.
