UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 Holy hopness! Ya, like everyone says, its a hoppy mess, but tasty once you get past the puckering you do after a sip. Enjoyed more then a few 4oz. shots of this at Arborfest, where Furious won best brew, which i voted for by the way. Nice color, great taste, not for everyone for sure, but thats why its called furious and not Miller. One of my top five brews of all time.
UPDATE! Just bought this last week at the liquor store! It is of course now in cans, glorious CANS! It was just as great out of a can, they want you to pour it into a glass, which i did for the first few, but then i got lazy and just shot gunned them strait from the aluminum, and was not disappointed! ALSO i have upped my rating to the PERFECT 5...i have tried a ton of IPA’s in the last couple months, and none of them are as great as ol Surly Mrthirstyneck (341) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2006
my my my....a top 5 beer i say myself. A hoppy route to be sure. pours a great burnt orange. nice head a flavor explosion in my mouth bitter to no end but finishes tasty. a weaker man might be put down by this brew but not this guy. huge fan. now in cans of four packs this beer loses nothing in a can and fillsa pint glass to the brim. Go and get this beer puts most hoppy beers ive had to shame. TwoDudes (77) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2009 Quite simply the best American IPA I have ever had. The one thing that stands out is what I can only describe as "juicy" hops. Maybe it was the exquisite balance of the beer, with the malt adding some sweetness, but it almost seemed like I was biting into a fresh apricot, or one of the other citrus fruits that came out. Absolutely remarkable. Two Hearted, Alpha King...Sorry. Your reign is over. Long live Furious!!!! Fidel67 (2) - Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2009 does not count
This beer is awesome!!! An IPA that is perfectly balanced with malt and hops. I sit back and am mesmorized by this beer. Perfect in every way. happilysurly (10) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
I am biased. I love this beer so much that it is the beer by which I measure all others. The aroma is a delightful bitter floral grapefruit. Color is beautiful reddish brown. Taste is a fantastic bitter grapefruit that lingers for minutes. Full boddied rich IPA. Just awesome.

Surly Furious is a very clear copper ale with a dense khaki head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a huge, fresh hop aroma with pine and grapefruit bust bursting out. It smells juicy and fruity. It’s pretty full bodied and super smooth. The hops leave the tongue a touch singed. Oh, this is nice and bitter and hoppy. There’s a nice full hop flavor here. It’s along the lines of Nugget Nectar or Hop Stoopid, but less sweet and more piney. It’s perfectly balanced. After almost 800 beer ratings, this is the best rating yet. This IPA is perfect in almost every way. The can keeps it fresh. I wish I could buy this in Upstate New York!

This is as near perfection as they come. I want to bathe in this. Beautiful amber pour with a medium head. Thick lacing. The bitterness hits you in the head and begs you to drink more. How could this have come out of a can! shadrach103 (351) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
I live in Chicago and I might very well drive to Minnesota just to stock up on Furious. This is hands-down my favorite beer of 2011. dyl4n (4) - - MAR 1, 2012 does not count
Best beer I’ve ever had hands down. I’ll change my rating if I ever drink a better beer. But until I do, this one can’t be beat in any category. Langsetm (4) - Excelsior, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2013 does not count
Seriously obsessed with this beer--especially as a Minnesotan. Makes ya proud.
