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.

Pours amber with an off white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Flavor is caramel malt up front with grapefruit and pine resin finish. The malt flavor in this is fantastic. Really nice!

ElCapitan22 (350) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Pours a hazy amber color with no lacing or head retention. Smells and tastes sweet and very bitter. Has a piney, caramel flavor but not too much citrus as it was advertised. A good beer for sure, just not quite what the hype was before drinking it.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2016
How: 16 oz pour, from a can. Gift from father-in-law, brought from the Midwest. Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a two finger foamy off white head. Good amount of soapy lacing. Aroma: grapefruit and resinous hops. Taste: The taste starts with some sweet caramel malts, orange peel and grapefruit followed by a big punch of resinous piney hops. The finish has a lingering bitter finish. Palate: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish. Overall: A very solid IPA. The hops dominate the finish but solid nonetheless.

Zymurgeist2 (2003) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
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 (1921) - 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.

Concealer (1211) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2016
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.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2016
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.
