To celebrate our flagship’s 15th anniversary, we brewed an amped-up Furious that emphasized its signature blend of robust malt and citrusy hops. And that was just the start.

We then aged it in whiskey barrels from our friends at Iowa’s Foundry Distilling. Not just any whiskey barrels, either. These barrels contained Foundry’s Furious Whiskey, which used the base Furious recipe to craft a 94-proof behemoth.

The result is Double Furious. An imperial IPA that goes twice as hard on the original’s caramel malt backbone and heavy hop bill, the sweetness and strength puts it in the neighborhood of a classic barleywine. Notes of zesty orange, caramel, and vanilla from the barrel add even more character and depth of flavor to an anniversary worth celebrating.

Double Furious is available in 4-packs of 16-oz. cans to select Surly markets through the month of April.

The particulars:

  • Hops: Warrior
  • Malt: 2-Row, Golden Promise, Aromatic, Medium Crystal, Roasted Barley
  • Yeast: English Ale
  • Pour: Reddish Amber
  • Special Guest: Furious Whiskey barrels from Foundry Distilling
  • ABV: 13.6%
