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.

I am furious... and don't call me Surly.

Pours deep amber red with a head that hangs on for dear life. Catty, piney aroma - the hops about snarl at you, appropriate to the beer's name - with an underlying faint coffee aroma, which is neat.

99 IBUs and every one of them is damned glad to meet ya. Starts with an aggressive, hops loud and proud attack on the tongue, then a darkly malt-and-grain maltiness arrives - coffee? toasty-roasty flavors I can't quite put my fingers on - that compliments the hop aggression almost perfectly. No lingering sweetness - definitely hops,. more hops, and dryish malts. The aftertaste is nigh on perfect - bitter, complex, dry-malty... fun brew. Moderate mouthfeel completely in character. Extremely drinkable thanks to the lack of any filling sweetness - all about the hops and dryness. Really dug this brew.

Thanks to BA JeffKrenner for the can!
