Herkimer, I got nothin but love for you. You were a most gracious host on Wednesday for the first official Brew52 meet up. You brew a mean Alt Bier, which I found to be nice and hoppy, not too bitter, and actually quite creamy. You also make some really tasty dipping sauces. I especially enjoyed dipping my mini burgers in your tangy ketchup. Yum. Thanks for supporting Brew52 and I look forward to tasting more of your great beers. Oh and even though I didn’t take advantage of it, thanks for having a shuffleboard!
Hoppy as hell, and delicious as hell if that’s your thing. But the canned version doesn’t do Furious its full justice.
Out of the tap, it’s like eating a grapefruit while strolling through an evergreen forest. Out of the can it’s bitter Fresca. So do this: Go to a bar that has Furious on tap and get it alongside a plate of extra-spicy Buffalo wings. Bring a spare pair of knickers.
Though I must insist, Furious’s awesomenessness doesn’t justify standing like a rube next to a biffy at the ass end of an mile-long line to the Surly brew review table to the neglect of every other beer on the premises. You know who you are.
I love everything about this beer. I love to take a can out of the fish killing rings (i do cut them up). I love the “crack” sound. I love first smelling the beer out of the can, then pouring it into a glass and smelling it more. I keep smelling it until my tongue wants in on it. The furious is so pretty in its glass, all amber and hazy, reminds me of this hippie chick….. What can i say, if you dont enjoy intense hop flavor you probably wont like this. If you see the Furious on cask, give it a try. Even some hop-haters (joking, dont get so serious) like this beer on cask. I really like this on cask and tea-bagged!
Surly Furious is, hands down, the best Minnesota brew that is produced year round.
Thinking about its hoppy goodness brings a tear of happiness to my eye.
