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.

Can. Deep amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet fresh hops, like hops added to boiling wort. Im not normally a fan of hop monster beers, but there is something differnt going on here. Has all of the good citrus and piney hop flavors and plenty of bitterness, but somehow seems tolerable at 100 IBUs. The hop flavor is so fresh and the malt somehow seems to balance the whole deal somehow. Not an everyday beer for my palate, but surprisingly enjoyable.

Top 50 IPA? I cant say it is that.... but it is definitely a legacy IPA standard. Very malty beer on the front. The nose is the most IPA part (though thats a good place for it). Sweet ending with a bitterness that is balanced. Toast carbonation end with a hop bitterness bite. Not bad. But we have surpassed this state of evolution.

Beerowulf (112) - , Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Pours a glorious amber. Medium head. Great lacing. Grassy aroma. Slightly malty and medium hop palate. This is a great balanced IPA and more agreeable than Todd the Axeman on the palate. All its cracked up to be.

Pours a lovely amber with white head. Big hoppy scent. Taste is caramel malts and bread up front followed by a hop finish. Great balance between the two. Bitterness of aftertaste is a bit much for me.

CacheManyHose (694) - 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 (780) - 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 (395) - 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 (359) - 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 (1143) - 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.
