Canned on 5/21/13 (brought to ATX thanks to AHM)
A beautiful, golden ale with a magnificent mango-y & citrusy nose.
The malt backbone is very strong om this one, but it is neither in the 90 minute style nor an English IPA. Awesome hops are still omnipresent in this MIPA - Minnesota IPA.
At 6.2% abv, and with such a unique aroma/flavor profile, Furious deserves a spot next to 60 minute any day. Just wish it was more widely available. Kudos Surly!
Serving type: can

(on tap at Local Option - served in British pint, I think - can't quite recall)
A: (dry-hopped) cloudy, dark amber liquid... slimy foam that leaves some nice rings of lace
S: Amarillo hops, English yeast?... pine, stewed pear, apple... golden raisin?...
T: bitterness a lil grassy, pesky bite... little alcohol... malt only in the background, light caramel... mostly resiny hops here, somewhat grapefruity, a little peppery... rounded edges, overall dry finish
M: soft, dull-foamy, flat-ish... very easy to knock back quick
O: the bartender's reaction may have said it all: "but that's only a regular IPA... that's all you want?" - haha... never had it before, so yeah! - ended up having 3-4 other beers as well... it's a decent American IPA for sure... having used Amarillo once or twice in recent homebrews, I can smell this damn hop whenever I come across it now, and I dig it - it's distinct, not bright and citrusy, a bit more dank and overripe... glad I was able to try this, disappointed not finding Coffee Bender anywhere though
