I had the blessed pleasure of repeated on-tap servings of Surly's Furious IPA over the last two years. Naturally I had many varieties of craft IPA's in between. I had a building score list of IPA's and each time I had another opportunity to tip back a Furious - I had to shake my head and exclaim, "DAM!". There are some really great IPA's out there but I've found no one who can balance it like Surly in their Furious offering. A gorgeous dark swatch down from amber and a sharp scent of heavenly evergreen that belies the balance you about to taste. This beer surprises you everytime by returning you HOME - it is as like the TARE on a beer scale. Some beers can take you high on various notes but Surly Furious is the new standard by which all other beers must measure themselves. I dropped the score on 'mouthfeel' to 4.5 only because I feel the need to leave room for another beer to challenge the perfection of Surly's Furious. Of possible, only a creamy mouthfeel could perfect Furious.

Poured from a can into a regular glass
A- how do all DIPAs look? Golden amber with a redish hue when held up to the light. Not much head and not much lace afterwhich. Looks good but nothing special.
S- the smell redines the smell of pine in DIPAs. It smells like there is actual pine straw in this glass, but in a good way. There is also a sugaryness from the malt.
T- very piney like the nose. Also has a good wheat taste followed by fruits and a strange taste that reminds me of something rubbery but not exactly rubber.
M- a little bite from the hops. Goes down pretty smooth but the malt keeps it from feeling like a true IPA.
O- very good but i prefer my IPAs to be a little more hoppy.
