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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a huge, dense, resiny head with good persistence that laces the glass nicely. Soft, nice hop aroma is slightly citric, but mostly pine. I smell a touch of grapefruit somewhere in there. A nice golden-straw color. Starts surprisingly bitter (the smell does not reflect the level of hoppiness this has) with over pine resin dominating in the front. Builds into a slightly citrus rind bitterness that is medium-high. Mellows substantially in the finish to let the malt come through, while the piney citrus of the hops lingers.

Overall, not bad. A bit thin on the body. While I LOVE a really aromatic IIPA, there is something nice about the subtlety of the aroma in comparison to the overt bitterness. I enjoyed thinking, "Oh, this will be mild....Oh, wow!" as I take sips.
I like it. It comes in 6-packs, so I wouldn't be opposed to buying another 6'er of this.

Notes from the back of a coaster dated 11-20-13.

Poured into 8 oz. glass on tap at Ed's in Winona. Clear dark gold color with a thin but very retentive beige head.

Biscuit, toffee, and caramel aroma with plenty of hops; piney, resin, and bright citrus.

Flavor is mostly hoppy; floral, fruity, and lots of resin. Bready and a strangely roasted finish, not particular common for the style.

Medium-bodied and moderate carbonation. Smooth and silky mouthfeel.

Overall complex and well-balanced for a IIPA. Lots of hop flavors, but also a lot of malts. Alcohol content is fairly well-hidden.
