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 Sheffields in Chicago. Color is deep copper/burgundy with thin off-white head. Aroma is all hops, very biting pine, grass, and weeds. Taste is light caramel malt, and again huge citrus and piney hops. Medium crisp mouthfeel. Good, but could use a bit more balance.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2010 Can - Ive only have four types of Surly so far, but each one of them is ridiculously drinkable without skimping on taste. Not sure how they do it, but I love it. Furious is no different, and is my favorite so far. Its sexiness in a glass--all reddish-amber and naughty. Smells good too--floral and citrus hops, with perfume and caramel lingering. The flavor starts with hops, but flows into malty, bready flavors. Theres a bit of an oily hop taste on the finish that feels a bit off, but thats nitpicking. Its soft and creamy in the mouth--just delicious. I want to visit MN just to buy some more. UPDATE - Seriously, this is a ridiculous beer. Just a huge blast of citrus hops, tons of grapefruit in the mouth, and super refreshing. Up this one a couple notches.

Can brought back by my lovely wife while on a business trip. Pours a red hued amber with a one inch white head. Aroma is very hoppy, floral, grapefruit, and sweetness. Initial flavor is biscuit and sweetness then great hop flavor. Orange, grapefruit, just a wonderful IPA. It almost makes me wish I lived in Minnesota, or my wife would leave more often as I split my 4 pack with my dear friend beardface and drank my two already.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Tap at ACBF 2009: Deep copper pour with a thick well retained dense tan head. Super resiny hop aroma with some mild peach and evident crystal malt. Fluffy carbonation- evident crystal malt in the flavor- hearty background with lots of piny spruce like character from the hops. Simple and straight forward but damn tasty.

16 oz can from Skinnyguy. Pours a dark, deep copper color with a white head. Nose is piney hops with a nice caramel and grapefruit hue. Palate is fairly thick and fluffy with a nice syrupy feel. Flavors are caramel malt with a nice pine and grapefruit presence. Not overly sweet and the hop presenceis very nice.
