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.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2013
On draught at the Old Fashioned in downtown, Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted golden grain malt, hint of pine and grapefruit notes, and a touch of tropical fruits. Taste is medium bodied, sharp bitterness at first with some toasted golden grain malt flavors. Finish is semi-dry, with both citrus and spicy grassy hops aftertaste. An average IPA overall.

I usually wont buy a beer that doesnt have the alc% printed on the label, but I was building a sampler 6-pack and there were 3 of these left in the rack. The label did boast double ipa so i figured what the heck. This beer poured "big foam", has a nice smell, was fairly easy drinking, and had some good ipa characteristics. Im taking away points for the secrecy on the alcohol level if this beer was 8%+, the grade would be 4+. Dont call it a double if its the same alcohol as a high end single, especially if you arent going to tell me what the % is up front.

A cloudy amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is very faint fruity hops and soap. The flavor is citrus and pine with solid malt.

Fair tasting beer BUT NOT A DIPA, not even a single IPA. Drives me nuts when I buy a buy an Imperial India Pale Ale that is in no way even close to the style.

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

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.

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.

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.

pours a nice deep amber color with a thin white head that lasts and laces. Aroma is nearly non existent for a DIPA that should have waves of hops. Taste some mild malt flavors, some sweetness, and a hint of hops. Thin on the mouthfeel with an odd finish. Add some hops to the boil, and maybe a high alpha like a simcoe for dry hop aroma and we may have something here, until then this falls a bit flat for me.

islay (2577) - 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.
