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.

Canned 09/19/12. From notes about 3 weeks later. Props to France44 for having this so fresh. Tulip glass.

A: Amber gold with a couple fingers of dark beige head, leaves some waves of lacing and has quite good retention.

S: Toffee earthy copper, a lot of malt but a little grapefruit too. Nice sweetness.

T: Mild toffee and some bitter hops, a little orangey pink grapefruit shows through but barely. Leaves a slightly unpleasant moderate grassy bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Normal.

O: Decent enough, fairly drinkable. It's much more toned down than Abrasive, which I love, meaning considerably less flavor.

Thanks again, Steasy66!!

Appearance. Pours a deep and hazy orange-amber with a finger of sticky looking, off-white head.

Smell. Nice grapefruit rinds and piney hops, some toasted caramel malts. Smells gooood.

Taste. Big piney and lightly floral hops, bitter pink grapefruit, some nice caramel malts, maybe a little tropical fruit. All the good stuff.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body , medium+ carbonation.

Overall. Just a fine example of an IPA. Tons of flavour. Looks darker than most, but tastes pretty close to perfect.

16 oz. Can to Snifter.

A: Fairly dark orange-red, very short head, medium lacing.

S: For an IPA, it has a fairly malty aroma, with some caramel notes in there to add to the usual IPA citrus/pine smell.

T: Not your ordinary IPA, the caramel flavor comes through but is still a hop-forward flavor, an exceptional balance in my opinion. Zesty, but not too offensive. I can taste the caramel more in the aftertaste.

M: Rather sharp initially, turns a little sticky towards the end, I love it.

O: This is hands-down my favorite year-round American IPA. With my second favorite being Odell's, neither are 'to style' and both are unique in their own ways. Furious is strong yet delicious, try it if you can.

Thanks to Rutager, again.

A: 3/4" cream coloured head over red/caramel liquid with excellent clarity

S: Pine, earth, grapefruit, lemon, and caramel

T: Grapefruit, lemon, grass, earth, aspirin, pine and a caramel backbone

M: Dry with medium viscosity and carbonation

O: An excellent IPA that is very hoppy, dry and flavourful with its caramel tasting malt backbone. The Scottish malt and dryness makes it seem more like an English than an American IPA.
