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.

16oz can. Pours a clear deepish amber to red with a massively rocky head, massive lacing of God. Piney, citrus, sappy, perfumey hops, toffee, dirty, iron rich earth. Taste is not too bitter- lots of nice Scotch malt, fairly sweet and creamy with piney, herbal hops. Excellent palate. These cans don’t last for more than a few seconds because the beer is so damn good.

Thanks to Mista for sending some of these my way.

Pours a fairly dark (for an IPA) reddish-brown with a fluffy white head. Smell is very nice, it's got that great citrus smell that I like so much in my IPAs, but also balances it out with more malt than you usually find in an IPA's aroma. It also smells a bit sweet. The flavor is nice, but isn't quite as impressive as the nose. The malt comes through more in the flavor and it's not quite as citrusy as the nose would indicate. Nicely balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty great IPA that I would drink all the time if I had it regularly available to me.
