I never give a beer a perfect rating but this beer is as close as it gets. Perfect two finger head when I poured it into my chalice. Perfect lacing. The taste is a great hoppy flavor but not overpowering. A slight piney sweet taste and smell. Anybody who can get their hands on this beer definitely should.

Recieved this long sought after brew from my Secret Santa Tayner, you're the best. Furious pours amber with a mild case of chill haze. Tiny streams of carbonation bubbles stream to the surface. A one finger light beige head appeared on the pour and although losing about half it's height becomes ultra creamy and leaves thick drink lines.

Furious smells like what an IPA should smell like. Caramel maltiness is there but way in the background where it should be. The middle brings sweetened grapefruit for a flash before some bitter grapefruit and big pine break through and overtake everything else. There's also a slight aspirin bitterness.

This is a high quality IPA. Again the caramel is there but is knocked back so quickly that you have to pay attention to catch it. That sweetened grapefruit comes along mid-palate just before the bitter pine and grapefruit pith destroy your palate. I love me a good ol' fashioned hop whompin' and Furious delivers.

Medium bodied with a lively carbonation that not tingles every tastebud but awakens them for the stomping they're about to take. Leaves a solid lingiering bitterness after each sip.

The drinkability is so good I'm already getting teary eyed that my one and only can is just about gone. I could sip this all night long. I just want another mouthful after mouthful of pine.

Furious is one of my new favorite IPAs and without question lives up to the praise it recieves. Guess I'll be making a trip up to Minnesota in the very near future. I just need to get my hands on the other Surly offerings.
