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.

16 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a cloudy dark copper color. The head is quite good; a one finger off-yellow shade thats very creamy looking. It retains acceptably, but not amazingly. Still, it does leave nice specks of lacing on the glass. S: At first whiff, it seems like an IPA heavy in both caramel and pine (which arent always my bag), but this seems to have something else to set it apart from the pack. Maybe its the fact that grapefruit notes are fairly distinct here, or maybe its the fact that this has some nice fruit esters to them. All I know is that I really like the aroma. T: The first thing I notice is a bit of caramel and toffee, right up until the hops take over. The hop profile is more piny/floral than grapefruity. I swear the finish is almost like grape jelly in a way. This is probably the calling card of this brew - the fruit esters, when they pop up, are fantastic. And after a while, I even note some peanut butter flavors on the back end...thats right, folks, this beer kind of tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This is a solid, complex, yet unexceptional IPA otherwise; but damn. I cant tell if the PB&J flavors are an awesome feature or Im going insane. M: A bit thick in body, with the carbonation giving it a bit more coarseness than I would like. Once that calms down, it becomes *very* soft for an IPA. Good drinkability, but it could also be drier. O: Ill take any chance I can get to try this beer, so naturally I had to take a shot on a can that wasnt spectacularly fresh. At first, it struck me as just another IPA; after a while, its depth (and unusual yet pleasing notes) really start to impress me. If I ever see this again, Ill gladly give it a second chance.

Tap in Chicago. Aroma is pretty subdued of flower garden and citrus and faint sweet malt. Copper-golden clear with white head dusting and around the collar. Taste is restrained pine. Massive bitterness dominates. Im missing the plot here on the high ranking.

pinkzambia (1903) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Can: Im surprised this has such a high rating. I wasnt that impressed. It did have a pleasant citrusy hop aroma. But the butter flavors seemed kind of musty and spoiled. Medium body. Good IPA but not deserving of the 100% rating.

Can. Clear copper with a frothy beige head that lasts and laces some. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, grass, biscuit, caramel, floral, notes. Flavor is the same, mostly bitter pine/grass/floral with some sweet caramel and grapefruit. Medium plus bodied, smooth with a slightly dry, bitter end.

Tall can gift from Jc1762. Dark amber body with big head. Very inviting. Nose is very hoppy, with barley and spicy notes. Just great. Taste is also very hoppy, then becomes more caramel, burnt malts and a punchy, alcy finish. Warms up real good. Excellent beer. Thanks Jon!

On tap: Orange amber color. Grapefruit and lemon pith aroma, sweet crystal malt and hop resin flavor. This is really tasty and a nice change from paler IPAs.

dnstone (2737) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Deep copper with a slight haze and strong off-white head. Fantastic hop medley aroma spiked with piney notes. Flavor is dry and piney with an excellent soft texture and just enough maltiness; hops are complex and well done with orange peel notes. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Virby44 for the can! Poured into a snifters showing moderately filtered dark brown with white foam around the edges. The nose doesnt show much. Light malts with a bit pine but not much else. Upon warming up, a lot of caramel malts on a very light background of pine resin. The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of light juicy pineapple with moderately intense pine resin in the background supported by a light malt backbone. Simple but tasty. The can is about two weeks old but Im guessing this would a lot more fruit and less malt on tap.

Can/Fest. A- Caramel, soapy. A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head. T- Caramel, bitter, malty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Okay, not enough citrus and too much caramel malt and bitterness for me.

Der_Biermann (9) - - AUG 20, 2016 does not count
The aroma is not hoppy,but not super. While you taste, you would have a different kind of feeling. Probably its because of long storage. Light amber with small head. Very piney , fruity and hoppy. Well balanced and relatively dry finish. Very good
