Surly. Furious

Oct 1, 2020 | IPA, Must Try


Surly Brewing Company was one of the first craft breweries that really highlighted to me the craft beer movement taking place within the U.S. Seeing patron’s wait in line to get a bottle of their latest release seemed crazy at the time. But 10 years on that has become common practice for many breweries and a staple of craft beer culture. The unfortunate thing is I had never had a Surly beer….until now!

Their flagship Furious IPA lives up to expectations. Pouring an amber copper color, this IPA already stood out from many other pale IPA’s. The aromas of danky pine, grapefruit rind and citrus comes through followed by a slight caramel sweetness. This malty sweetness is more present in the taste but is well balanced with the classic citrus and tropical fruits. A satisfying blast of hop bitterness coast the tastebuds towards the end, encouraging you to take another sip quick! Overall, this craft beer is wonderfully balanced and less furious than the name might suggest….which is a good thing. A Must Try craft beer.

Description from the brewery:

Surly is called “Surly” due to our inability to find a good beer in town. Furious is one of the first beers we brewed to rectify that situation. The rest is history.

People ask us to describe Furious all the time. It’s not quite like any other IPA out there. We give them the flavor notes and the hop profile, but it never seems like it’s enough. What makes Furious Furious? Let’s try this: You know that feeling when you do something that pushes you to your absolute limit? And people think you’re a little off your nut for even doing it? And you kind of agree with them, but goddammit, it’s getting done? And then you fucking DO IT? And there’s no one there to see it but you and the dog so you high-five the dog?

That’s Furious.
