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.

Hazy copper/orange color with a small head. Strong earthy, spice, and pine hop aroma. Strong bitterness. Solid pine, vegetal and caramel. Full body.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2013
Tap at Old Fashioned. Filtered orange-tan. Steady creamy off-white head. Floral, fresh citrus tones, but very balanced by the smooth golden malt. Straightforward, cool, crisp. Good beer, but not such and exciting IPA for 2013. Somewhat delicate, not piny or harshly bitter. OK. Forgettable.

akoeninger (341) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a pale orange color. With an off white head. Light hop, pine aroma. It's like a more subdued Cascade aroma. Taste is more hops and pine than expected from the smell. Good malt balance but the hops cut through. Slightly bitter finish, full bodied. Brisk, yet woodsy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear, orange amber. Medium frothy white head. Lots of sticky lace. Aroma is sweet, citrus, tropical, orange, peach, grapefruit. Flavor doesn’t quit live up to aroma. Flavor adds some pine. Medium body. Sharp bitternes with a long finish

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

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.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottled. Pour clear, lighter orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up fresh orange zest and piney bitterness over sweet caramel and biscuity malts.. nice and fresh, but it came across as too hot. The flavor found more of the biscuity malt and a little fruit at the core, with pine tar, orange zest, and fairly raw alcohol around.. finished spicy and warm, with a lot of fresh, tasty hops and a hit of rough boozage. Medium-bodied and lacking a bit of balance on the palate.. this wasn’t bad, but I was hoping for a little more.

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
