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.

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.

Dfonorow (1440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Pour is dark golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is of weak pine hops, not much else. Flavor is of pine needles, grass, earth, and orange zest. Finish is a bit spicy.

AWISLguy (1289) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2013
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.

Clear, orange amber. Medium frothy white head. Lots of sticky lace. Aroma is sweet, citrus, tropical, orange, peach, grapefruit. Flavor doesnít quit live up to aroma. Flavor adds some pine. Medium body. Sharp bitternes with a long finish

An average ipa at best. Smells hoppy and hoppy flavored. Has a soapy flavored finish not fruit at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (1124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2014
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.

ICEatALAMO (938) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. The aroma is sweet hops. The taste is hoppy, but a little metallically. A decent iipa that is not overly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ericular (612) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2013
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.

Had it from a bottle. Poured a amber clear hue with swirling tornado of sediment. Stanky hop aroma and a hop sour flavor.
