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.

Served in a Great Lakes Christmas Ale snifter.

APPEARANCE

The beer is a dark red with a good amount of haze. There was a 1-2 finger off white head, and the beer has a nice amount of lacing throughout the session. Overall, it looks like a Red IPA, and is very lovely.

SMELL

Big hop character - there is a good amount of grapefruit, citrus, and spicy hop character. There's some nice alcohol and grain notes. There's a bit of lemon in the nose as well. Overall an awesome smelling IPA.

TASTE

There's a lot of fruit character - grapefruit, orange, and some tangerine. The hops actually give the perception of sweetness, though the beer is very bitter. It's actually very balanced compared to other IPAs. It is fantastic tasting

MOUTHFEEL

The mouthfeel is very nice. It starts off with a bit of body, then finishes dry. There isn't much carbonation, which makes it nice and smooth. It's very drinkable overall.

OVERALL

This is an awesome IPA. I got a lot of these as extras from various trades, and I'm really glad I got the chance to enjoy a few of these. I even tasted a home brewed clone of this at my local home brew shop, and it was awesome - the point is, you can't go wrong with this one!

Cheers.
