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.

Nuffield (4142) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2013
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)

12oz bottle 5/11/14 (Woodmans-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.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2013
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.

Brigadier (3650) - Chagrin Falls, 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. Dont 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.

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.

madvike (3237) - 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 its pretty boozy and bitter. Grassy and piney hops, some citrus rind, and more toasted malt. Its pretty bitter and sharp. Smooth and fine-bubbled, pretty slick. Not all that great.

Christpuncher (3083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2013
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

AWISLguy (2939) - 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.

cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, 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 its drinkable, just not all that great. Wont be picking this one up again.
