Bottle. Pours dark copper with some head. Weak aroma of piney hops. Taste is also piney, shocked this is a double IPA...or even an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brook Falls Discount. Pours an unclear orangey-brown with a white head leaving some lacing. Aroma has pine & citrus & caramel. Taste is of sweet toffee, some citrus and pine. Quite resinous. Flavor slightly off somehow; malt forward but also a strange flavor palate. Medium bodied. Finishes sweet with a slight citrus presence. And some alcohol. Shrug? Fair but not better than that.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-18-14. Fruity, creamy, malty, barley-wine-esque, boozy aroma features orange, muffin, cookie, biscuit, and yellow plum scents. Strong and complex; floral and perfumey smell. Pours mostly clear with some haze. Highly effervescent: Many small bubbles. Small amount of beige head. Orange brass to sable color. Nice looking beer. Salty, dry taste features light pine, tonic water, booze, and lemon flavors. Dirt dryness from the hops in the finish. Pleasant but weak flavors. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Furthermore Full Thicket is perfectly pleasant but plain and forgettable, especially for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear gold with lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is woody and malty, with alcohol and a spicy heat. Taste is malty, with some piney bitterness in the middle and then more lightly roasted malts in the aftertaste. Not my idea of an Imperial IPA. This is rough around the edges, but itís drinkable. Donít think Iíd seek out another.

Dank hops and semi-sweet malt. Not very thick or syrupy like I would expect. Ok.
