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.

Smells like grapefruit and blood orange. Bitter hops punch you in the tongue with a piney taste

Had on draft

A - Lovely crimson/amber body. Head is fizzy and fairly thin.

S - Strong citrus aroma - a mix of tangerine, lime, orange,and grapefruit.

T - The citrus onslaught continues, but heavier on the orange than the nose. The malt is a delightful mix of sweet but dry. A good mix of darker caramel and specialty malts keeps things interesting. The finish is bitter with lingering citrus and caramel sweetness.

M - Despite the dry finish, a very creamy mouthfeel.

O - Great IPA. Unique takes on the color, mouthfeel, and malt with exceptional use of citrus hops.

Very bitter and earthy. I enjoyed the English tasting malt but the hop profile left something to be desired on my palate.
