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.

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.

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.

2.56/5  rDev -21.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Gold, good head.

Smell: Vegetal, toffee.

Taste: Toffee, mild tea-like bitterness.

Overall: I've liked Furthermore's beers because they are unique, but their take on the double IPA misses badly. It smells and tastes like a regular strength English pale ale, with toffee and tea bitterness. I wouldn't call it an English double pale/IPA either, just seems weak.
