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.

Pour / Appearance: Pours very well carbonated, creating a thick bone white head. It hangs around pretty well. I know this isn't ideal for an IPA in terms of losing some aroma in the head, but it looks damn pretty. The beer itself is a very nice ruby-amber, with a cloudy orange hue when held directly in the light. Great.

Aroma: Big, bold, juicy hops. Wow. Primarily citrus and fruit, but something like Chinook or Columbus in the back giving very light dank, oniony scents. Thankfully there is definite malt character; a bit like sourdough bread or a nice, whole wheat bagel. Wow.

Taste: And it all comes together here. The aroma certainly brings everything hop forward, but the nice present but subtle malt figures in perfectly to add a nice body to what could just be a hop head beer. It still is, don't get me wrong, but it's a terrifically balanced one. And it doesn't go too far overboard, not verging into DIPA, just a great IPA.

Overall: Fantastic.

Bottom Line: Buy. Hell, if you're just getting into big hop beers, just buy the 4 pack. If you don't like hops, you'll be furious.
