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.

Deep amber w great legs. Piney citrusy nose w a very similar taste. Notes of buttered, honeyed bread and lemongrass in the finish. A bit overpriced for what's ultimately a second tier Midwestern IPA (A four pack of Two Hearted tallboys is about four bones less), but this at the very top of that second tier and a very pleasant drink regardless.

Appearance: pours a deep orangish red color. a two to three finger off white head with decent retention. a small streaky lacing around the edges. pretty hazy and almost opaque.

Smell: good strong hop bite starts off. notes of pine, citrus and hop resin. good amount of bitterness but it is almost taken over by a large amount of sweet malts. ranging from toasted bread to caramel malts.

Taste: opens up with hops coming through with pine, citrus and resin. a good amount of bitterness up front. strong malts creep through the hops constantly. notes of caramel and toasted bread. more hops sneak through at the end with some slight tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel: syrupy and resiny. bitterness and caramel malts battle it out. it comes out pretty even. strange and may be slightly undercarbonated.

Overall: way too malty and syrupy. almost cloyingly sweet even with all the hops in it.
