look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16oz can into a perfect pint glass.

Pours a very pretty reddish brown color with a small yet creamy off white head. Carbonation rushes from the base of the glass as the head dwindles leaving silk screened lacing. The aroma is big time citrusy hops. Caramel malts with a whole wheat breadiness on the nose. Really big dose of pure grapefruit and orange peel. The flavor is just as intense as the aroma. Has a huge citrus bite up front then the malts peek through to balance it somewhat. Still a very hopped ipa with structure. The carbonation level lacks a bit for me as it's not flat, just softly carbonated which I would prefer in a dipa. This makes it a bit dull and doesn't give a fresh feeling on the palate. The mouthfeel is silky smooth though. Drinkability for me on this is high. It's a great go to ipa, though I can't get it here. Huge flavor packed in a modest 6% alcohol.

Can courtesy of Sammy: Poured a deep dark brown color ale with huge dirty white foamy head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of piney and citrus hops is huge and dominating the aroma. Taste is a mix between strong caramel and toffee malt with some sweetness balancing the strong piney and citrus hops. The ending is quite bitter as you can imagine but some subtle floral notes were providing more complexity which was appreciated. Body is full with some low filtration which was quite enjoyable.

Pours from a great looking can, a bright clear amber color with a large head. Nice looking beer!

Aromas have a sweet toffee undertone, and a pronounced fresh citrus tea like hop burst. Nice smell, but not quite what I expected.

Flavors are rich and full. There is an upfront bitterness on the first sip, it is more of an aspirin and mineral like bitterness. The beer then settles down into more pleasing grapefruit hop flavors. The undertone is of sweet cereal like grains. The hoppy bitterness once again shows up in the long finish, and it makes you pucker your mouth a bit. This is a pretty big and complex IPA. But I think it is a bit rough around the edges though.

Mouthfeel is nice. Very full flavored, good carbonation, and a long finish.

Drinkability is good. This is a very interesting beer to taste. Kind of strikes me of being similar to a British Style IPA, but with much more hops. But like I noted previously, it could use a bit of refining to really be a stand out. With that said, it's still a very good IPA. It's just not quite up to the rep it has on here in my opinion.

I am looking forward to carrying some of these up into the Northern California Wilderness this summer. More craft cans please!

I was pleasantly surprised to see this as a "throw in" from a trade with todd1. Thanks again!

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.

Poured a burnt orange color with lots of carbonation and a billowing tannish head. Nose is pine, citrus and lots of caramel. Taste is rather chewy, thick with pine, citrus and caramel. Mouthfeel is heavy for an IPA. Lots of malt here,even tasted chewy and toasty to. Drinkability is good.

Canned 11/28 and reviewed on 12/17. Thanks to dulwich for sending this.

Very deep copper color (lovely!) with a nice frothy head and excellent lacing. This is quite dark for an IPA. I love the color. The nose is not pushy, but fresh and pungent. Typical IPA aromas of citrus and flowers, plus a very faint, cedary, almost vanilla-like note.

The hop character of this beer is not as pronounced and abusive as I thought it would be. It has a velvety smooth, well-balanced flavor. Not too sweet and not excessively dry. The flavor has a nice cedary tone with accents of lemon and apricot. Good firm, oily mouthfeel, but not creamy.

I can't believe this stuff comes in a can. This beer should be called ``pouty'' instead of ``furious''. You needn't be afraid, but tread lightly...

16oz can sent to me by Will. Thanks!

A: Pours caramel-colored with a nice off-white spongy head.

S: Plenty of pine, citrus, and sticky caramel in the nose.

T: Significantly drier in the taste, with lots of grassy bitterness, some mild notes of orange and mint, and a good amount of grainy malt behind.

M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty refreshing IPA. A bit too dry for me but still tasty.

After all the extremely overbearing hype here, I was finally able to try the Surly Furious on tap at the Blue Nile in Minneapolis.

It poured a nice deep copper, cloudy, with minimal head. Looked pretty decent.

The aroma was... well hell, it's an IPA. What do you expect to be in the aroma? This was hops. And hops. And more hops. Oh, and some hops. There was a hint of malt sweetness at one point, followed by some hops. Did I mention hops? This one has a citursy hop zing that alomst but not quite burns your nose. Very unashamedly upfront about the hoppiness.

The first thing that hits you upon taking a sip is the serious bitterness, followed by a full cirtusy, flowery hop flavor. Oddly, the floral flavor seems to get bigger in your mouth even after you've swallowed the sip. it keeps growing and growing, making you think you may never taste anything else ever again before finally breaking and letting a bit of malt shine through for a well-short-of-balancing sweetness. The sip finally fades away with a combination of sweet malt and floral citurs hop flavors. This is definitely a hop foward beer, and there's nothing wrong with that.

The mouthfeel is a tad thinnish, but that's probably a good thing, as anything thicker in a beer like this would be tough to drink. As it is, it works.

This is nicely done! I can't get into the whole "Omigod, I had a Surly and now I have to change undies! Must post Surly information on BA every 30 seconds!" overhype, but there's a reason these brews are pushed by their consumers as much as they are. They are quite good. This one is well worth seeking out if you're anywhere near their distribution area.

Can thanks to yamar68. A long time want! Poured into an HF tulip.

Pour: Clear amber with finger and half of off white head. Leaves really nice lacing, and the head forms a nice film on the body.

Smell: Caramel sweetness, a nice resinous pine, and some tangerine in the back. This is really malt forward on the nose.

Taste: Follows the nose. Lots of caramel sweetness with a substantial bitterness, that gives way to pine and citrus. Really nice, but not what I was hoping for or what I'd even expect from an IPA.

Mouthfeel: Really, really juicy, despite the substantial malt bill on the taste. Pretty darn drinkable. The best aspect of this beer for sure.

Overall: Not what I was hoping for from Furious, so I confess myself disappointed, but still a tasty experience nonetheless.

Presentation: Tall can poured into a Sam Adams Perfect pint glass. Served slightly chilled.

Appearance: A big, three finger beige head emerges on the first pour. Medium to light brown in color with some amber highlights.

Aroma: Big pine and grapefruit notes upfront. Caramel and toffee notes from the malt as well, this seems very malt forward some far. Some pineapple and citrus sweetness near the end.

Taste: Starts with big piney hop notes, but the malt is very forward for an IPA. Borders very close to an imperial red. Caramel and toffee balance out the hops. More bitter toward the end. A big pine and sweet hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Pretty full bodied for the style and sticky. Plenty of carbonation to keep crisp. Refreshing.

Overall, a really nice IPA that's big and bitter. I love that this is canned and that it is in a tallboy. Really refreshing and enjoyable. I do think it falls a bit short of the hype and it's not my favorite of the Surly brews I have tasted. It definitely is near the top of the mountain for best malt forward IPA though. Certainly worth trying.

I enjoyed Furious with a shaker pint.

Appearance- An orange-tinged swell of foam gets to about two-fingers in wdith. It falls fast, but leaves a sticky sheet of lace on the side of the glass.

An amber-orange body has a distinct haze to it. When held up to the light, the highlights appear more golden.

Smell- The nose is spicier with some pepper and lemon rind. A little bit of herbalness underneath as well. The nose hints that I should expect a spicy and citrus palate.

Taste- The bitterness feels good and goes all the way through the drink, with a finish that is herbal and slightly biscuit-like, even a little resin thrown in.

The front of the drink has more of that distinct pepper and citrus quality. Furious is actually a little more mellow by mid-drink with the herbal character making an appearance.

Mouth feel- A great mouth feel is found in this beer. It is big and smooth. Despite the way the bitterness sticks to the jobs, it is easy to drink.

Overall- A big and bold IPA with a mellow feel. I cannot say that the peppery and herbal IPA flavors are my favorite, but the bitter kick helps keep this one exciting for me.

On-tap at the Happy Gnome: Cloudy rust with dark honey highlights. Smooth, firm topping of lighly stained brown foam. Out of two pints I had, one was slim, one was a finger high. Tons of layered lacing score the glass with heavy sheeted rings.

Aroma is all red grapefruit, quite juicy, zesty, and fresh. Although my first was barely traceable as the second had the red grapefruit standing out very prevalently.

Taste did not differ however; big red grapefruit juicyness with a sliding edge of dry leafyness takes hold immediately with the citric bitterness. Its quite nice at first, lots of hoppy grapefruit bitterness with only a slight malt keeping it tendered in a floury bread and very dry grain. However, the bite and dryness did take the realm a little too quickly and parchingly to fully enjoy the second pint as its a palate wrecker for sure. For whatever it is (amber/IPA) I would've liked a bit more balance out of it. I might as well have peeled myself a grapefruit and not used any sugar. Nothing complex about it besides its layer of drying bitterness.

The feel is all bitter, all squeezing, all parching, and all sour grapefruit juicyness. Actually quite heavy and full on the tongue and palate. A nice pay lode of hoppy bitterness. A bit too much though, even for this hophead.

I enjoyed this at first pint. Very nice grapefruit taste and bite. But it is a bit much after a while. It tired my palate out right quick and half way through the second pint my mouth was screaming for something else so I had a Porter instead of a third Furious. I see now why it is named as so. The hops are just that. Furious.

Special thanks to tavernjef for these cans of brew.

The beer pous out a clear, dark amber color with a small beige head. The smell is dominated by a toast and toffee malt smell. There are also aromas of pine, grapefruit, and tangerine.

The taste is wheat toast and biscuits up front, followed by a strong hop bitterness. The bitter flavors seemed to be made up of grapefruit and lemons. The moutfeel is medium, but on the fuller side.

The drinkability was very good for an IPA lover. It's probably too bitter for others.

Poured from a 16oz can into a clear glass mug. Canned on 06/02/11 stamped on the bottom of the can. From a superb beer haul courtesy of my brother Greg.

A: Cherry red-amber hue with 2-finger off-white, rocky head with good retention and a nice line of lace.

S: The pithy grapefruit aroma is dense and it eventually gives way to the pineapple and pine flavors. The English malts are obvious and provide a more biscuity, caramel aroma.

T: The hoppiness is pretty substantial and leaves a nice tropical fruit flavor of pineapple and mango. The citrus component is dominated by grapefruit and orange. The maltiness is English medium caramel malts. It's a very good beer, but the maltiness is a little too much and does dampen the hoppiness a little.

M: The coating feel is right there and I wish the carbonation was slightly less on this beer. The body is medium-full, more toward medium.

O: The is a very good beer, but it is not the most original or hoppy IPA. The IPA aromas and flavors are very good, but I think 8 or 10 other widely available IPAs are better including Bell's Two Hearted Ale, Victory Hop Devil, Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA, and Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. Still this is a really nice beer.

Canned on 6.11.12

A. Poured from a tall boy can into a perfect pint glass. A big fluffy, at least an inch and a half, off-white head that does not stick around for too long. A bit of lacing. Burnt orange/amber coloring, mostly translucent with what appears to be a bit of floating sediment.

S. Surprisingly, this does not smell as I expected. Hops seems muted. Some sweet/citrus smells, but otherwise not terribly impressive

T. I am not as impressed with this as I want to be. Decent citrus hops -- grapefruit, orange. I also taste a sweet malt presence as well. This is good, but not great.

M. Slightly carbonated, not terribly smooth.

O. This is an OK beer, I'd try it again, but overall, it is not among my absolute favorites.

Pours amber in color with some light red hues. There is a slight amout of haziness and a good amount of visible carbonation. Head is fluffy, about one finger, white and retains nicely.

Smell is really nice on this. Lots of grainy bready malt is forward and very nicely balanced with a good amount of piney citrus hops.

Taste is even better then the nose. Lots of tangy citrus hops are forward with a mild to moderate amount of piney bitterness and tons of hop oils and resin. Malt is semi sweet, balanced nicely with the hops and caramel in flavor.

Mouthfeel is equally great. Tons of hoppy oils and resin along with a mildly sticky body from the malt. Leaves this a nice drinking ipa.

A) Heavy chill haze, deep amber body that holds a solid cover that laces some.

S) Loads of hops, all west coast citric (grapefruit) and pine. There is enough sweet base that promises to keep it from withering your tongue.

T) Hop oil assault, grapefruit, pine and grassy. Full malty base keep it from being over the top and lets you enjoy all the alpha acid goodness.

M) Low carbonation, medium body, and oily finish

O) Yum.

Well Surly, we meet again! :) 16oz can poured into a regular old pint glass (near perfect fit!). Canned on date of 4/14/11.

Appearance - Somewhat red/orange golden amber color with about a finger of ever so slightly off white head that's closer to fizzy than rocky, but lasting. Leaves a nice amount of lace.

Smell - Smell is of that real pungent oily/resiny hop flavor and of citrus/grapefruit hop along with pine...almost like some of oily/sap-like hop smell. Maybe what I like about this one is some floraly/perfumy hints to it, can't quite put my finger on that one. Smell is great though. Can't keep myself from sniffing the can over and over again. Caramel or pale malt smell seems to come out a bit as well and a bit of sweetness accompanying those wonderful hops. Not as extreme smelling as Abrasive and more pine that it as well, but similarities are hard to ignore.

Taste - Taste is pine with grapefruit and bright orange, caramel backbone malt to balance it all out, sweetness (but not too much), and some bitterness like you'd expect from an IPA. Malt in there is just enough to balance it, so it's just right. Not too bitter at all. Maybe a bit of tropical fruit hops on the taste, but no where near as much as Abrasive. (I know I know, I'm comparing an IPA and a DIPA, but I can't help it).

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel seems to be one of the smoother of the IPAs I've had. For the ABV, I expected it to be a bit more crisp. Finish sort of sticks to your mouth, coating with a nice wet film. The carbonation is medium/round, and the body is a medium as well. Not the easiest drinking IPA, but good.

Overall - I think this is another great offering from Surly and another great IPA. Not quite my favorite IPA but very good. I'd certainly have a bunch of this in my fridge nearly always if I lived in Minnesota. Initially thought this was closer to a 3.5. Sipping on it and contemplating leads me to change my mind. It's a 4.0 overall. Granted I feel some IPAs are better, but those that I think are better than this would get a 4.5 overall from me.

Aroma is fairly malty, with notes of caramel countered by muted grapefruit, pine, and resin.

Flavor is similar, with a biting bitter finish. Lightly sweet caramel malt carries throughout, with muted grapefruit juice and lots of pith adding complexity. The finish is a bit more harsh than I'd prefer.

Can date 6/16/11 consumed 8/3/11

A- Pours a clear copper with two fingers of tan head. Head has decent retention but leaves only a small amount of lacing.

S - Lots of pine up front, mixed with some caramel, a but of grass and quite a bit of citrus on the tail end.

T - Similar to smell with a nice punch of pine accompanied by caramel malt. After the pine fades, a big rush of citrus with a bit of earthiness on the finish.

M - medium mouthfeel, a bit lighter than I would have expected. Carbonation a little on the low side. Finishes dry and bitter.

O - a very nice IPA that I would be happy to have again. Wouldn't go to far out of my way to get though, considering the more easily obtainable alternatives.

T - surprised by the strong earthy woodiness, pine and grapefruit hoppiness is more subtle, healthy sweet toffee maltiness
M - medium body with a serious hop bitter that sticks to the roof of the mouth
O - an in your face IPA that delivers on its name, tasty and true but probably not for sessioning

Ok so I am finally able to get my hand on a CAN of this wonderful brew here. Why it took so long to get something, anything from Surly is a mystery to me, but what is even funnier is I ended up with two! So not only did I have one to try, but hopefully, if its good I have one to enjoy as well. So last night I figured it was about time to pop this one open, and had a nice long pur into my Phish glass….

A – Poured a deep dark amber, nice orange hue to it. Lots of visible carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Upon pour a nice, two inch plus head of off white, tannish colored foam formed on top of the glass and had a very good retention to it. In fact, it never really did fade, but rather just shrunk down to a respectable three quarters of an inch and kinda stayed that way throughout the entire session. Great side glass lace, rally thick concentric rings formed all the way down the glass. At the end lots of sediment was visible in the bottom of the glass, which I always take as a good sign. Overall good look going for it here.

S – Aroma was intresting, definite hop tones dominating from the start, notes of citrus as well as a piney sort of smell were both very evident from the beginning. However, there was more to it then that, in fact there was a nice malted back that made up the bulk of the aroma once it started to warm. A good smell of earthen, grassy like, sugary malts layed a nice foundation behind everything and was a welcome treat.

T – The taste was wonderful. To be honest it came off to me as more of a red ale then an IPA, but that is just me. Great first assault of piney like hops. Not extremely bitter, but rather mellow and smooth and just enough to get the ball rolling. A tremdous amount of malt then becomes apparent. Great earthen tones again, and a good use of roasted malts. Nice sweetness, some light candy like sweetness, but primarily a dark, balancing sweetness to it. Great dry finish, lots of hops in the finish, with a somewhat lingering citrus like tone to it. Very well rounded and big. This was definatly a good one.

M – Exceptionally smooth would be the best way to describe this one. It had a great carbonation about it, and it really gave it a very full feel. Thick, almost bringing it into the syrup like category, but stopped well short but copious carbonation that just let it roll on through. Definatly not watered down, as the flavor profile here really does pack quite a punch to it and almost gets a bit overwhelming for something that should be sessionable.

D – Great, low ABV, and great flavor always make for a good combination. This is one of those rare ones that really misleads you in the other direction. It tastes much bigger then it actually is. You would think something with this much flavor and pronounced body would be much much stronger then it actually is. Definatly a good game brew, but I don’t really know how many I would go with in a sitting just do to the huge profile on this. Could get to be a little much, but still an awesome one, that a couple would be easy to do.

Overall very very impressed here. The string of good things from a can continues first of all. But being my first taste of Surly, I am very much impressed. This seems like a definite winner to me and something I would like to have a steady supply of. I would love to see this around locally as it would quickly become a staple of the house. Overall great, really great and it will make me seek out others from them. Just what I was looking for at the time.

1 pint can poured into a seidel stein.

Appearance- Medium copper color, pretty hazy, nice 2 finger head, very frothy. Lacing godd, but not persistent.

Smell- Pine, hops, super hop-forward.

Taste- Big time hops at the front, smoothing to a more natural malty taste in the middle, with delicate citrusy notes on the finish, Very smoothe and easy to drink.

Overall- I would drink this again. The smell made me think this would be a difficult beer to drink, but I was wrong. Quite smoothe and drinkable.
