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.

Beautiful red color and tons of hops with bitterness to match. A bit too hoppy for my taste, but a good beer.

CacheManyHose (673) - HONG KONG - APR 29, 2017
Pours a clear reddish amber-brown with a very thin white fizzy head. Huge resin bitterness, wet grass, somewhat stony, moderately spicy/rye malt. Body is medium to heavy, bitter, grassy. Big, balanced, quite enjoyable.

HKdIPA (765) - HONG KONG - APR 29, 2017
Can from Andys Liquor in Rochester, MN back home in HK. Clearish red copper pour with dissipating head. Aroma is deep pine with some crisp green apple. Taste is very deep pine bitterness and lots of spicy biscuity malt. Sort of like a slightly flatter, but more spicy arrogant bastard. Good to try but probably wouldnt get again.

Finally Surly found its way to Florida! Deep orange color, malt sweetness nose. Malt forward taste with a nice transition to the hop finish. Nice bitter on the finish. Well blended brew.

Brettsky06 (365) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 16, 2017
From a can. Copper pour with some white head. Aromas of pine and tropical fruits. Taste has some more pine. Very balanced between the hops and malts all the way to the aftertaste that really coats your mouth. This beer is amazing

MaltOne (354) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2017
Pint Can - Pours a slightly hazy pale copper, brief, lacy white head. Aroma is light but complex, with pine and tropical notes. Taste is a beautiful balance between the malts and hops. Palate is at the same time rich and subtle. Its not "in your face" with any element. Malt structure carries through to the finish, the hop blooms from start to finish, Surly seems to have real touch for balance and clarity.

smaynard6000 (1123) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2017
Can. Pours an amber color with average sized tan head. Mostly hoppy aroma with pine and citrus notes. Somewhat balanced flavor, sweet with caramel malt notes up front, with some piney hop notes in the finish. Medium bodied and very good.

glennmastrange (2807) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2017
Can. Moderate roasted grain, nuts and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy spruce for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of dried fruits in the background. Head is average size, frothy, off-white, with thick yet slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear dark amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly to moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Top notch IPA, been a long while since Ive had one this good.

marcus8182 (2) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2017 does not count
Just a seriously great midwestern IPA. Stick your nose in the glass and inhale greatness. Balance between the full hoppy nose and bitterness with a blazing amber/gold presence. There are a few others who can match it, but no one who can really beat it.

sawbuck (717) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Aroma of fresh pine, and a hint of lemon/citrus. Deep orange color with a nice off white head. Sweet malt up front. Nice blast of fresh piney hops next. Balance is very good. Nice carbonation. Medium mouth feel. Finish is piney hoppiness that lingers just a little. Decent offering.
