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.

Pours out nice light maroon in color with a healthy two finger, white head with good retention and some really nice lacing.

Smell is pretty tropical. Definitely some nice orange, mango, pineapple, with a slight bitterness. Nice sweet malt backbone that really seems well balanced.

Taste is slightly less tropical than the nose and a little more nice piny goodness but there is a good balance between the two. The piny bitterness seems to linger in the throat. The sweet malt backbone really evens things out as there is a really nice balance between everything mentioned. Nothing really sticks out or is overwhelming so all of the flavors are there in a nice amount.

Mouthfeel is fairly thick for the style and is very nice.

Overall I really like this beer and am glad I have easy access to it year round. Really nothing to complain about here. Just a great example of the style.
