Light amber body, not a lot of head.
The big hop aroma is expected in this DIPA (pine, resin, floral) but what is surprising is a malt profile that seems more like a brown ale than a pale ale. Nuts, chocolate, butterscotch.
Tastes like an amped up English IPA: earthy, bitter, a little buttery finish. Hop flavors lack the nuance of the nose, and the plain bitterness doesn't mesh perfectly with that brown ale maltiness.
Dry and crisp mouthfeel despite what tastes like a sweet malty beer.
Like many of Furthermore's beers, its unique in an experimental kind of way, but not exactly craveable. It doesn't help that the style just isn't my wheelhouse, but I'm not sure its all it could be either. (696 characters)

A: Brilliant amber, 2” pillowy white foam collar that produces thick ledges of lace.
S: grassy, citrusy hops, malt
T: starts with a strong shot of malt – a hint of cola and then a lingering bitter finish, citrus rind. Caramel flavors with just a hint of roast.
F: Medium full body, medium carbonation,
O: This strikes me as a medium beer - fragrance is medium low, impact is mid range, the hops give it some character as does the malt. The alcohol is not assertive. (474 characters)

Meh. Just a mediocre IIPA that doesn't really come off as an IIPA except in the nose. Decent smell, passable appearance with a frothy, vigorous head, decent mouthful but very thin taste, bitter with no substance. Glad I only got one in a make-your-own sixer. (258 characters)

poured 12 oz bottle into snifter.

A - Nice dark copper color with white 1 finger head. Retention is minimal and yields a thing ring around glass. Slight spotty lacing.

S - Earthy and dank hops with some pine and hints of bitter citrus. Some malt sweetness of caramel and honey.

T - Starts off with some malt sweetness of caramel and honey, maybe some breadiness. Midway through some earthy, floral dank hops make an appearance. Finishes with some bitterness and minimal citrus.

M - A bit thinner than I would like a IIPA, but not bad. Carbonation is light and it is oily and slick. Bitterness does linger for a bit.

O - This is a pretty decent WI IIPA for the price and uses local WI hops. Not overly hoppy, but the flavor is good. I'd have it again. (756 characters)

Pours amber with a lasting, fluffy white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of floral/citric/herbal mixed with a caramel backing.

The taste is citric bitter, then a caramelized sweet kiss, finishing bone-dry. Alcohol noticeable.

A strong, hoppy, boozy DIPA. Looks very nice, smells nice, the flavors could come together better, but decent enough. A bit of a chore to drink it all, but in "sipping" mode, it's enjoyable. (422 characters)

Pured into a goblet, probably too cold. Appearance: rich cloudy gold. Smell: lightly sweet And yeasty.Taste: sweet and tart, very peppery and lingers bitter. Mouthfeel: Much lighter body than your typical Double. Though you do get the sense of respectable abv in the quality of the underlying malty sweetness.
Overall: Meh, not bad but not great, probably wouldn't get again, but wouldn't snub one if handed to me. (414 characters)

The Furthermore site puts the abv at 7.5%

Pours a finger of white head over a clear, thin, amber liquid. The foam dissipates quickly, but the lacing sticks hard.

A tame, somewhat musty, peppery, aroma of mildly citrusy hops. Very little malt in the nose.

None of the malty caramel or sweet bread that I want in a IIPA. The hoppy citrus character is that of bitter grapefruit, rather than sweet orange or sweet tropical fruit. Some pine on the back end, finishing double-dry.

Thin body, medium to high carbonation.

Certainly worth the $8 for this 4-pack. But almost completely lacking in sweetness or malt. (Here comes a tad bit of sweetness, as the beer warms.) With so many really wonderful IIPA's out there, I doubt I'll buy this again soon. (748 characters)
