can thanks to my trading dog in MN. Sat on this one a little too long, so its a little past prime. drinking straight from the can. Nose of citrus like american hops. Flavor is initially bitter, but quickly turns sweet and caramel. finish stays a little sweet, but with some hop astringency - not offensive, drying in a way. Overall, a very good beer when I had it fresh a couple years ago, but after I sat on this can for a few months, it's definitely lost some hops.

Poured a deep dark copper with a substantial head. Immediate aroma is pine and citrus hop forward notes which fade into bready caramel ones. There is an initial aggressive and harsh bitterness, but the bitterness in the finish is much smoother and soft. The hop flavors come across as quite citrusy, lots of orange juice and tangerine lending a very bright taste. There is a subtle sweet caramel backbone that complements the intensity of the hops, but doesn't temper or balance them much. Not nearly as overly aggressive and in-your-face bitter as I remember it being but sill an extremely great example of its style.

Can of Surly Furious, poured into a pint glass

A- It is a dark brown, with a frothy tan head.

S- As soon as the can was cracked open, the smell of hops fills the air.

T-A little underwelming for a Surly IPA. I was expecting an over the top hopiness. Its not here. That isnt a bad thing, just different from what i expected. A very easy, smooth drinker though. There is a sweet maltiness in this one, balancing it out very well.

M- Very easy drinking. The right ammount of carbonation, a little bit of hops on the back of your tounge in the aftertaste.

O- Furious is not what I expected it to be, but is a good IPA none the less. Far easier to drink a few some then some of their other offerings.
