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.

Medium white to off white head dies to a thin lacing above a copper colored beer with tons of small particles suspended within.

A spicy to citrus hops aroma is quite prevalent.

The spicy to citrus hops are very present in the taste as well, almost a bittering dry taste with any malt tastes being drowned out by the hops.

A dry lasting aftertaste on this medium bodied beer, another pretty tasty beer from the guys at Surly.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark copper to amber in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall pillowy dark beige head that reduces to a mottled patch of thin and thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of hops - primarily grapefruit/citrus hops with lighter notes of pineapple/tropical and much lighter notes of pine/resin.

T: There are huge hops flavors upfront with this beer - primarily grapefruit/citrus and pineapple/citrus with some very light hints of pine. There is some bitterness in this beer but it is not overly aggressive. In the finish, there is a light presence of caramel and toffee malt sweetness which balances out the bitterness of the hops.

M: On the heavier side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slight dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is really delicious with a wonderfully inviting aroma. I really enjoyed this beer and found it so easy to drink, it left me wanting for another and another. I could easily enjoy multiple of these though the ABV is a little too strong to be doing that. Wonderful complexity to the hop flavors and aromas.
