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.

Big thanks to Mista for the extra!

A: dark orange with a thick off white head that gives way to covering lacing.

S: pineapple and citrus hops dominate the smell entirely. Slight pine scent too.

T: bitterness is huge along with the hop presence that is mostly pine here. Malt takes a back seat entirely.

M: crisp, well carbonated, and medium-light body

O: tasty beer, would happily have it again. I was slightly disappointed in the taste given expectations, but no IPAs blow me away anymore, unfortunately.
