Year of Beer Paintings – Day 243

The featured beer painting of the day is of Furious Beer from Surly Brewing Company. I went to a grunge rock band dance party last night at the McCarthy Saloon, where there was some serious fury, especially in the mosh pit. I stood on the sidelines, sipping my beer. I think that kind of seething anger and aggression is the right type of attitude to be consuming this particular beer.

The tempest on my tongue was apparent immediately. I experienced a moment of pure hop bliss when I cracked open this crimson hued ale. The American hops and Scottish malt brought out a delicious cornucopia of flavors. Citrus, pine, and caramel toffee, this beer is as true to the marketing as the can suggests. It really lit the hop fire my taste buds required, but unfortunately I shared this beer with five other people, so my 3.3 ounces did make me furious, but only because it was gone and we only had one can!

Way to go you Surly dudes from Minnesota! This beer was surely delicious! I toast to your success, making a fine IPA in the Midwest!

You can purchase this painting, or a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
