COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hops? You’ll 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.

Can poured into pub glass. Pour is deep amber with frothy white head. Aromas of piney hops, resin, slight fruit, and some citrus. Flavor is crisp and finishes somewhat dry. Resin, piney hops, and malt are throughout. Very nice for an IPA.

kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Can courtesy of OHLRangers. Pours a hazy reddish brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, grapefruit, apricot, sweet floral hops. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, honey, caramel, floral hops. Generally light to medium body with a hoppy finish.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Appearance: Gold and Amber
Flavor: Citrus and Pine
Palate: Smooth, Bitter
Overall Impression: The pine and citrus flavor is very prevalant in this IPA. I enjoy the citrus flavor but the finish is a tad too much pine and bitterness.

Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2009
A hazy dark copper orange ale with a thick frothy creamy light moka head. A wonderful hops aroma, resinous, with citrus and marmelade notes, some caramel. Wow! In mouth, a light malt with good citrusy c-hops, a bit lighter than expected from aroma. An excellent IPA. Gift from Piscator. Tasted with Probstk, May 26 2007.

sirpsycho (396) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Can. Opens with hardly a sound, no pfftt ? No carbonation ? Pours an amber with an off-white head that I forced to produce, didn’t stick around long. Aroma is citrus and pine. Flavor lacks the intensity of the aroma, subdued cirtus and pine, malt shows through more. No carbonation and just slightly bitter on the finish.

TheRealBastard (145) - The-No, California, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Fuck yea. This beer rocks, the best tall can I’ve ever had. Pours reddish orange color with a ton of egg shelled colored head. There was a serious blast of pine and citrus when I cracked the can. Taste was hoppy and fresh with a nice aftertaste. Was not dry like some IPA’s but very smooth and wet. Extremely refreshing brew, I wish I could pick this one up everyweekend. One of the best session beers out there.

Thanks to lb4lb for the bottle!
Dark amber with a fluffy white head. Nose has some caramel, major pine, and orange. Flavor is similar, a little more malt and bread yet also more citrus to keep the balance. Moderate palate but where is the carbonation??... just kind of falls flat. Good beer, nice balance, but it’s not a top tier IPA.

timbeer (69) - Rosemount, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2009
On tap, in a can, and tea-bagged. Pours a clear amber with a nose that is just plain hops. Simcoe and Amarillo hops mix to bring a blend of citris and pine. Caramel flavors but not too sweet and just plain hoppy. A smooth bitterness on the tongue that lasts for a while. One of my favorite beers.

4.2
Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2009 16 oz can brought back from Minnesota by my dear friend Kathy. Pours a dark amber with a one finger white head. Interesting melange of hop aromas, some flowers, some grapefruit and a nice pine bite at the end. Hefty orange flavor with some lemon, grapefruit and pineapple behind it and a pine snap in the finish. The flavors linger for ages after the can is gone, which is good since I ran out of the stuff!
