Surly Furious is not the hop bomb the Minnesota brewery describes, but the beer does announce its presence with aromas of grapefruit and pine, courtesy of Centennial hops. Brewed from Scottish malt, Furious pours a creamy head of foam, with some notable pine astringency on the palate, complemented by hints of caramel and black tea. As mistakes pours go, this one was glorious.
