Our eleventh of 12 candidates for America's Next Top Beer ...

Surly Brewing Co. -- Brooklyn Center, Minn.

It comes in a can and carries a simple one-word name that feels more like a threat than an invitation. But Minnesota came out hard for it this backyard brew, stuffing our comments with raves about this amber ale.

"It's hoppy and strong and pairs well with everything from pizza to White Castle," reader Patrick tells us. (And who are we to argue?) If you're fortunate enough to crack open this IPA, you'll quickly see what all this Minnesota meltdown was all about. A vibrant copper brew that packs a bold floral hops taste, Furious is an immensely drinkable beer.

The final word:

Asylum user Patrick: "Legit"
