Notes/Commercial Description:
A tempest on the tongue, or a moment of pure hop bliss? Brewed with a dazzling blend of American hops and Scottish malt, this crimson-hued ale delivers waves of citrus, pine and carmel-toffee. For those who favor flavor, Furious has the hop-fire your taste buds have been screaming for.

Furious 16oz can from the Liquor Barrel in Golden Valley.

I have to admit a little trepidation about trying a canned beer. I've had Furious on tap a number of times and wasn't sure how it would carry over. My reservations were completely unfounded. This stuff is awesome out of the can.

It pours well into a pint glass: a nice dark orange with red highlights capped with a two inch head. The smell is wonderfully hoppy with notes of citrus and pine.

Now for the taste - almost (almost) as good out of the can as it is on tap. I notice just a bit more pinch of bitterness on tap. But the hops are ever-present here as well. Not quite the artwork that is Bell's Two Hearted Ale, but it's close. And it's brewed locally! The mouthfeel wasn't exceptional, but it wasn't bad either, I may have been drinking it too fast.

If you can find this, I would definitely recommend picking up a four pack. I know I'll buy more.
