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.

A: Two finger tall bright white head with tiny bubbles that receeds fairly quickly. The beer is a slightly hazy marmalade orange color with a liiitle bit of haze.

S: Cider like aroma almost tart. Slightly bready and doughy almost no hop aroma detected.

T: Moderate to strong grapefruit bitterness but its more of a dulled flavor. A white bread malt flavor that keeps the hops from being more interesting. thats about it..

M: Thin mouthfeel with a dry finish, and moderate carbonation.

O: Bleh... For a double IPA this thing sure is malt forward. Its bitter sure, but theres very little hop flavor or aroma. Most of the flavor comes from the malts. if you like your DIPAs like a super bitter kolsch? then maybe this is up your alley.

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.

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.

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.
