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.

Courtesy Secret Santa. Pours a dark amber color with a huge, pillowy off white head that slowly recedes and leaves sheets of lacing behind. The aroma shows a good dose of caramel malts with some citrus and grapefruit hops as well. The flavor folloows with the orange and grapefruit hops up front and then quickly balanced out by the big caramel malt backbone. It is not as hoppy as I was expecting, but a great flavor. A very substantial body for an IPA, but is very smooth and easy to drink. Finishes sweet with some hop bitterness on the backend. I love the way this one tastes, but I would love to try a fresh can as I think mine had lost its bite. Nice IPA.

16 oz. can courtesy of Beerlando. Clear, copper color with a thick, frothy, white head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is out of this world. Tons of citrus hops, but there is some piney notes lurking in the shadows. Nice malt forward flavor with some subtle sweetness. This gives way to a bitter flavor with tons of sticky hop resins. Short bitter finish. Wow, what a great beer.

Honestly, my favorite beer...my deserted island beer. Pours a reddish hue, with tons of frothy head. Vigorous lacing clings to the glass. It has intense aromas of serious grapefruit, spice, citrus, and pine. The flavors are unbelievablely balanced, even in this unbalanced IPA, showing a strong malty forefront which melds well with the intense hop backbone...just the perfect amount of malty sweetness presence. The finish seems to last minutes on the palate, as the sting of your tongue gently fades...not to mention, its only 6% abv, which is a feat in itself to have so much complexity in such a small abv.

Crazy that this came from a can. Pours a darker orange colour with a small offwhite head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet pink grapefruit but then some pine sap in the finish. The flavour is similar with sweeter, citrus hops at first and then finishing with some stronger bitterness. Good malt backbone keeps this well balanced. Near the top end of IPAs.

egajdzis (6268) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruits, floral hops, caramel, and light toast. Taste of citrus, pine, sticky caramel resin, and grapefruit, with a dry, hoppy, light alcohol finish.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
In trade with noncaloric. Thick head. Red-amber beer. Delicious citrus alcohol aroma with hints of caramel, makes me think of a rye IPA. Thinner than expected body for high IBU. Aggressive and tasty citrus edge. An extreme beer, not your everyday pint.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Pours dark orange brown with a slight haze and a thick off white head. Aroma is very strong hop resin pineapple and grapefruit with a nice thick floral pine note. Some tasty caramel malt as well. Flavor starts mildly sweet with the same citrus hops and zesty fruitiness. Very strong bitter hop oils and a very fresh sort of resin flavor really give this a tasty bite that doesnt have any astringency or unpleasantness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This is a very good IPA. Not the best Ive had but a really easy to drink hoppy beer.

Thanks to DalzAles. 16oz can poured into an English pint. SF pours the color of tarnished brash with a medium-to-large head that leaves thick soap scum-like lacing. The aroma consists of hops, hops, hops, pine and grapefruit with a dash of hops thrown in for good measure. Yummy! This is a seriously nice IPA. It is dry and refreshing. The pine hops and grapefruit come out very nicely. This is a beer that lives up to its reputation. The body finish is dry and quick but a nice bitter lingering taste sticks around to remind you of the great beer you just had.

Can from tytoanderso - I mean santa. Poured deep amber orange, nice fluffy head, lots of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit citrus hops, pine hops, caramel, and some spiced hops. Very nice and complex. Taste is caramel malt, hoppy with lots of pine and citrus hop, finish is bitter resin pine hop. Mouth is full and sticky. Solid IPA and a nice change of pace from the usually over-hopped version.

1 liter on tap. Dark, rich, Rosewood color with minimal head. Very interesting color for an IPA. Booming complex fresh hop aroma. Very oily hop resins, almost soap like but in the most appealing way. Medium malt richness gives way to a matrix of hop flavors. This beer oh so very hoppy but delicately balanced. The finish keeps reminding you of what you just drank. This rings in at over 100 IBUs but in no way does it make you pucker because the bitterness is so fresh, oily and resiny. I choose this over two hearted any day.
