Pours red-amber with a thick creamy head that leaves sheets of lacing.

Aroma is caramel malt and rich centennial citrus hop. Plenty of grapefruit bitterness.

Taste is sweet caramel malt, hints of toffee and brown sugar, and a definite grainy character. Hops are citrus and herbal with an earthy, nutty quality. Finish is mildly bitter and slightly metallic.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Slight hop oil residue.

A nice IPA that the hophead in you can enjoy.

Thanks to sholland119 for the generous extra in a trade.
Pours a thick, murky dark copper. Lots of sticky lacing left on the glass.
Smells darkly malty, lots of spicy hops.
Taste is very dark and rich. Lots of bitter hops in the finish that linger in the back of the throat. Very nice balance between malt and hop.
Easy enough to drink. Smooth and creamy.

This came as an extra from iasanlee, thanks for the chance. Surly Furious pours out of the can a nice ruby color, with about a half inch of heading. Nose is of bready, garlic like hops, along with some citrus and pine notes. Full on hop assault from the start taste wise, though the Scottish malt does help to even things out a bit. Mouthfeel is medium, crisp and drinkable given that you are into lots of hops. Simply a well crafted IPA from a great craft brewery. Cheers

Malty resiny aroma. Amberish in color. On tap at MSP airport.
Assertive malty backbone with a bitter finish. Some tea notes. Pretty full mouthfeel that finishes dry and the hop bitterness lingers. Amber malts balance ojt the bitterness.
