Canned 1/11 and drank on 1/31

Big Thanks to StPaulSuds for this one and especially for the Abrasive!

A - Cherry red poured into a Guinness perfect pint glass. Good head retention, so so activation and lacing. I'm not used to that color in regards to most IPAs but that by no means took away from this score.

S - Subdued cold but opens up nicely as it warms. Earthy pine, the grapefruit I detect is moreso ruby red and Pineapple. Caramel malt most def there as well. I'd guess that this is equally heavy on the malt as it is the hops.

T - Matches nose pretty damn well. I'm glad this beer is fresh. I'd bet this becomes a malt bomb after 2 months or so. Just as heavy on the caramel and nutty malt as the citrus hops which is why I scored it 3.5. The citrus could have been brighter and I felt the malt played too big of a role here.

M - The only other single IPAs I've had this bitter is Wipeout and GF West Coast IPA. I could see where it could be too bitter for some but I liked it. At 99 IBU's I can see why they decided to name a single IPA Furious.

O - Good beer here but nothing to go crazy over. Just a wee bit above average when it comes to readily available single IPAs. Abrasive on the other hand...that's the one that impressed me for the DIPA style.

4.44/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz. Can

Appearance: A dark amber pour with a reddish tint when I hold it up to the sun. Dang girl this beer is beautiful. I'm blushing or maybe the beer is.

Smell: Piny, dank, sweet. No need to overthink this.

Taste: Furious is a go to. The piney hop bite is balanced nicely with the scottish malts (golden primise). And crazier even is the choice to use a London style yeast strain. Wow, I can't get over how unique this beer is. There are hints of pinneaple, pear, evergreen, bread, and toffee.

Mouthfeel: Slick.

Overall: A very unique IPA. I'm very fortunate that I can swing by the store and get this everyday if I wanted to. This beer is not overhyped, try it for yourself.

Serving type: Can.
