This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Pours a hazy light amber with a medium white head. Aromas of hops, and malt in the aroma. But there is something else I cant put my finger on. Flavor is mostly of hops with a hint of malt in the back. Slight bitterness to follow. Not bad, but I was expecting more.

crossovert (6343) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
12 oz brown bottle. It pours a nice pale golden orange with a foamy, soapy looking white head that sticks nicely and recedes to some nice lacing. The smell isn’t in-your-face but it is pretty nice. It has a floral bouquet, some herbal notes, and orange citrus. It has a noticeable sweetness in the scent, almost like vanilla icing. The flavor does have quite a bit of sweetness but also some decent bitterness to counteract it. It isn’t a malt bob, but it straddles the line between a hoppy and balanced ipa. In the flavor the hops have some orange and pine, and a medium bitterness. It is really complex though, the malt and hop balance and flvors change from sip to sip. Overall, not a bad one from Furthermore. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-20-2010 03:02:27

Fresh fruity citrus hopping,caramel frosting in background,the hops tickle the nose for a good while, flavor id a light hop emphasized mix ,the hop more pine like flavor and bitterness just a bit stronger then the backing malting,the hop bitterness is what is left on the palate. Lighter,very drinkable,certainly a pleasant summer refresher,would always chose this over the usual 8 beers I normaly see at the typical Wisconsin bar

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Bottle courtesy of ughsmash. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of lightly citrussy and resiny. Tastes of resiny hops, pepper, spicy, moderate bitterness on the finish.

Brigadier (2830) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2011
12 oz bottle
A bonus from Ughsmash this is the latest release from Furthermore. Showing signs of improvement it indicates they are still competitive in the Wisconsin market. Rather than coasting along trying to do the bare minimum it is obvious the guys in Frank Lloyd Wright territory intend to stand out from the rest. here’s the hoping the next release is just as solid a daily drinker.

Aroma / Appearance - The translucent bronze body and bubbly white head presented a good starting point. Meeting my expectations this didn’t show characteristics of being exceptional nor did it try to be average either. The spell of spruce, split maple, and peanut butter filled chocolate brightened the air.

Flavor / Palate - Warm rosy hops opened with a comforting greeting. Next came a woody aftertaste. The creamy texture was like melted marshmallows. The piney bite in the finish was sharp enough to leave an impression but not so much that it kills the palate by the end of the bottle. Another indication that the craft scene is alive and kicking this is worth hunting down if you enjoy solid regional products.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Draft at Old Fashioned and in a 12oz bottle. Murky tan-brown. Soapy off-white head laces the glass. A really solid IPA, something missing in the WI market. Very hop-forward but also quite well balanced, with chewy caramel malt tones. While most Furthermore products can be stylistically eccentric, this one is straight down the middle US IPA. Awesome.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2011
12 oz bottle courtesy Ughsmash. Pours a mostly clear, medium orange color and topped by a small off white head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of fresh citrus and pine hops a top a base of caramel and bread malts. The flavors follow suit with the orange citrus and pine hops to go with the sweet caramel and doughy bream malt base. The hops add decent balancing bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation that leads to smooth bitter citrus finish. Fairly straight forward and decent enough ipa.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle: Pours a deep bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a big fresh citrus and pine hoppy nose with some light pale malty undertones. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with lots of fresh resiny hop flavor and bitter balance before a clean hoppy finish. A very nice IPA.

Bottle from Discount Liquor. Pours a crystal clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is faint hops. Medium on the palate with medium carbonation. Flavor is slight hops and a little malt. Nice hop aftertaste.
