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.

3.3/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Slightly hazy, light amber coloring, thick, bone-white head, leaving lace.

Aroma: dank hops, dark malts. a little sweet and fruity, but hop bitterness on top. a bit of a muddle, though, nothing really stands out and takes attention.

Taste: Bold entrance on the palate, fresh hoppiness, and then swiftly fading back. Medium-bodied, with a blase' finish. No ABV given, doesn't feel too high, though…could be wrong. The soon-gone hop attack is a disappointment. In general, I'm feeling disappointed. There's some caramel and chocolate malt flavor appearing on the palate that don't quite mesh well with piney, citric hop presence. Again, it's a mixed-up meddle that doesn't come together very well in the mouth. Leaves me feeling unfulfilled.

Blah. I don't enjoy saying it about a Furthermore beer, but this is one of the least satisfying double IPAs I've ever encountered. If I could turn back time, I'd have found something else to spend $9.99 on than this 6-pack. Curse this desire of mine to "try 'em all"!

Hey, what's the label say? "Local hops added for extra Wisconsin-ness.--A Furthermore Beer brewed and bottled by Milwaukee Brewing Company, Wilwaukee, WI." Oh.

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.

look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

Serving type: on-tap
