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.

Thanks to zrrbrrt to introducing me to this one.

Quite a surprise, definately like nothing I've had before in a can. Compare this one to Hop Rod Rye or Bittersweet Lenny's.

Dark scotch ale-type malts full of chewy body and sweetness try to upstage the huge hops raging on in their full glory; ultimately it's a draw (with a slight edge towards the hops). Pine, concentrated ruby red grapefruit juice, and bug spray all make their way into the thick, oily mouthfeel.

My guess is that some rye malts were used. Dark ones.

Great looking head with all the oily spots and stained white foam and lacing we've all come to expect. Great beer, great find, I can't believe I didn't know about it. Cheers!

Enjoyed in a pint glass.
A: 99 IBUs! Yes :-) My first Surly! Love the tallboy. 1 finger of light tan head with good retention. Chill hazy reddish gold. I guess the haze is the hops talking. Beautiful beer.
S: Wow! Dank floral and pine, sweet mandarin orange. This is man candy! Passion Fruit/Orange/Guava juice comes in later. Some rye-ish malt smell too. Ideal; sublime.
T: Flattish malt up front. Bitterness keeps kickin' it up a notch in the back. Very bitter with piney, grapefruit, and white fir needles. Maybe the most bitter beer I've had? All the smell doesn't end up in the taste unfortunately. That is a negative, and I'd like a little more malt character and sweetness.
M: Dry and tingly bitter. Almost exactly like white fir needles in the dry puckering quality they have. Almost masochistic!
D: Supremely enjoyable, but a sipper definitely. An excellent beer.
