COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Double IPA featuring local hops for extra Wisconsin-ness. We are embracing the reemergence of regional hops in this citrus forward/fruit-finishing beer. As the name implies, there is enough Cascade and Mt. Hood hops jammed into each pint to warrant breaking out the pruning shears. Luckily the big body will be enough to soothe any scrapes or scratches that the Full Thicket might inflict.

Golden amber with a creamy nitroesque white crown. Aroma of bready malts, caramel, floral hops and a hint of honey. Floral hoppy with mild citrus, caramel, mild woodsy hops and strong bitterness.

Not a huge aroma, but it is in the ballpark. The tasting reveals a few malts and very mild hops, again not really what the better Double IPAs offer. O.k. as a beer goes, but blah if they were setting out to brew a good DIPA. (bottle, 2013 Ale Jail festival, St. Paul, MN)

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12oz bottle 5/11/14 (Woodman’s-Waukesha)-41° in Shaker-Pours a hazy orangish amber with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more malt and slight caramel. This medium to full bodied brew u\is a mix between a double and regular IPA.

Brigadier (2975) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2013
12 ounce bottle
Despite the high overall score this is a middling IPA at best. Somehow better than the sum of its parts I would still not go out of my way to pick up a six pack. Even in the Madison area I can think of six to ten better alternatives from local breweries. Don’t buy it unless you want to try every Furthermore release possible.

Aroma / Appearance - The caramel bronze base shimmers with a thin offwhite head. Deep and murky, it contains a blend of caramel, grapefruit, and sweet malty tea. The result feels like an English style IPA left a bit too long in the cask. This is less imperial IPA and more old ale.

Flavor / Palate - A malty imperial IPA is more bitter and dry than anything else. Rather than the strong hop profile I expected it is more like a steeped tea. While drinkable the outcome is not overly remarkable. Save your money and buy something from Ale Asylum, Lake Louie, or New Glarus instead.

madvike (2729) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle - Pours clear amber orange with a huge foamy light tan head. Nose is lots of toasty malt, orange marmalade, and some piney, grassy hops. Taste is the same, but it’s pretty boozy and bitter. Grassy and piney hops, some citrus rind, and more toasted malt. It’s pretty bitter and sharp. Smooth and fine-bubbled, pretty slick. Not all that great.

Reddish orange pour from draft at Murphy n son. White head. Super bitter and hoppy. Fruity and cherry flavors

cbfobes (2293) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark amber copper with a decent off white head, aroma was terrible by any means, more sweet malt than hops than anything, the flavor has a slight hop touch on the front end with a sweet finish, not a lot going on with this one but it’s drinkable, just not all that great. Won’t be picking this one up again.

I saw in their description that on the bottle they call it a dipa but elsewhere an ipa, which puzzled me. Then I tasted it and it actually seems more like an ok pale ale with good body. Maybe because of the strength. Whatever. Not really, bad, just not too good either.

Bottle from Bob, dark gold pour with a bit of white head. Aroma of light piney hops and earthiness. Taste is piney bitterness and malt, it's ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

amber pour with a medium off white head. aroma is fruity over fusel. flavour is earthy, toasted malt, fruity and light piney hop. Very dissappointed with this one.
