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.

4.48/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Traded for this, only to find out it was almost 5 months old! Fail. I miss my Heady Toppers. 16 oz can, poured into a Bell's tulip glass.

A: Biiiig thick off-white/creamy head. When this settles out, a surprisingly dark amber/ruby clear body emerges. Really nice retention and lacing. If the head wasn't so crazy this would be near-perfect.

S: Grassy, pinecone-forward hop aroma, but a hint of something else making it unique. Maybe some grapefruit? Something spicy, citrusy... can't put my finger on it. Nice though.

T: True to the smell, lots of pine and grass hop flavor. Bitterness throughout. Well-balanced. Not incredibly bitter but definitely nice.

M: Smooth! One of the smoother, easy-drinking IPAs I've ever had. Good level of carbonation. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Highlight of the beer, in my opinion.

O: Even 5 months old, this is a fantastic IPA. I wish I could try this fresh! Incredible drinkability, great taste, if fresh it would probably rival Zombie Dust. Must-try, world class.
