I had the blessed pleasure of repeated on-tap servings of Surly's Furious IPA over the last two years. Naturally I had many varieties of craft IPA's in between. I had a building score list of IPA's and each time I had another opportunity to tip back a Furious - I had to shake my head and exclaim, "DAM!". There are some really great IPA's out there but I've found no one who can balance it like Surly in their Furious offering. A gorgeous dark swatch down from amber and a sharp scent of heavenly evergreen that belies the balance you about to taste. This beer surprises you everytime by returning you HOME - it is as like the TARE on a beer scale. Some beers can take you high on various notes but Surly Furious is the new standard by which all other beers must measure themselves. I dropped the score on 'mouthfeel' to 4.5 only because I feel the need to leave room for another beer to challenge the perfection of Surly's Furious. Of possible, only a creamy mouthfeel could perfect Furious.

A: Reddish copper color with a 1/2 finger sandy head and some spotty lacing down the glass.

S: Some good notes of pine and citrusy hops with a bit of a tea-like hint to it. Some caramel sweetness to be found as well.

T: Full of pine and citrus hops with a substantial malt backbone. Caramel malts come in before a prolonged and dry pine finish. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy and coats your mouth in hoppy goodness. I really wish I could get this regularly.
