Moylander Double IPA pours a dirty orange with a slight chill haze. A dense 2 finger head appeared on the pour that slowly fell and left sheet lacing down the glass after each sip. The head never fell to less than 1 finger. Good looking beer.

There is definately a solid caramel backbone but that's way in the back. What really stands out is the big juicy resiny hops. There's a bitter grapefruit rind citrus aroma shining through occasionally but it always leads back to the resiny hops. Excellent.

Not a great deal of malt in the flavor but in this case it's just right. This beer is a hop bomb. Resiny hop bitterness hits mid palate and coats the tongue with a tastebud stomping bitterness. There is some malt, in the form of caramel, that kickes things off but the hops quickly take over. Good tongue numbing bitterness on the swallow as the hops get more bitter and resinous. My kind of IIPA.

Medium bodied with a mildly prickly carbonation that awakens the tongue for the ass kicking it's about to recieve. Bitterness throughout that lingers. Good body for the abv. Not sticky like others tend to be.

Easily drinkable for a big brew. The hops will wreck the tongue though so drinking more than one at a time seems like a waste to me cause you wont get the tongue lashing.

My first beer from Moylan's and won't be my last. I'm anxious to try the others. Now if I can only figure out how to get my hands on some more.

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 9-23-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Pours a dull orange color with an inch or so of foam, great lacing as well. Nice citrus and pine hops, it’s about all I can detect on this one. Big orange, grapefruit aroma with a sweet hint of malt in the background. Strong bitterness in the taste with a bitter orange peel aftertaste; some biscuit and bready aromas but you really have to let this one get to room temperature to get some malt aromas and taste. The bitterness is dominant so you better like to drink some hop juice or else stay away from this one. There is an interesting citrus peel flavor in the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the carbonation is quite good. Must like west coast ipas to enjoy this brew!

My conversation with this beer:

Jef: (pours and looks at pint glass) Hmmm...Your color is moderately clouded in a copper-orangey russeted deep glow, speckled with light flecks of hops and/or yeasties suspended within your murk.
B: You make that sound bad, but don't forget my small but thickly dense dark ivory head that, sure, fades somewhat quickly to a solid skim, but that skim is always present and I have mega amounts of thinly placed sticking sheets of intricate lace all over your glass that eventually breaks into webbing patterns.
Jef: Yes thats quite striking to me.
Pause -
Jef: (Whifff) Ahhh...Hello hops, I love thee!
B: You do?!
Jef: Yes I do, Oh so much...again, Hello...hops, boy you seem awfully resiny and highly floral, fresh and green with a great sweet tone and woodish leafy notes don't you.
B: Yep, and don't forget my lovely backing of soft caramel malt.
Jef: Oh I won't, seems like you've got everything in check. I could smell you all day.
B: Please, you're embarassing me.
Pause - Laugh insinuated
Jef: (Slurp, gulp) Ahhh...Hello hops again, my oh my you are one fine and dandy hopped up beer. Your flavors aren't overly aggressive but layered in a nice complexity with wonderfully rendered resinous and floral tones that tend to bring out some very nice higher end sweet tones and woody fresh leafyness. The dryness is amazingly in control along with the bittering kept mild to my buds yet with enough grab to forward any attention that might otherwise be absent. How do you do that?
B: Well, the soft caramel malts are in an abundant quanity as to balance out any real strong or abrasiveness the hops may bring.
Jef: Ahhh...that's why you taste so good. Great balance with flavors on both scales weighing heavy, nice job my bottled friend.
B: Why thank you.
Jef: And your body seems favorable with a mediumness and some great effects of dryness with your hops. And that lingering resiny woody thing is mind boggling. I'm impressed.
B: C'mon now...stop it, I'm blushing already...
Pause - laugh insinuated.
Jef: I must say I could drink you all night, good thing you're in a bomber otherwise I might have thirsted for more long into the night.
B: Yes, bombers can be a nice treat. I too I'm glad. For the both of us.
Jef: Alas, I have poured all your hoppy yummyness into my glass, I will finish off my glass and smile with glee as the hops will surely be dancing in my head for the rest of my forseen future til next we meet.
B: (Left speechless)
Jef: Ahhh...A stupendous thanks goes to" heads, fish heads, rolly polly weefisheads!"
End scene with a smile and a beer...

Originally reviewed 05/26/06...

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

A - Cloudy with a white head that isn't going anywhere.

S - Nose of citrus hops. Piney.

T - Nice hop bite without being overbearing. Tastes very similar to the smell, maybe not quite as citrusy.

M - Fine bubbly carbonation.

D - The 8.5% abv is completely masked. Very easy to drink.

Solid solid example of a double IPA. Moylan's continues to impress.

Nice hazy, apricot color. A bit lighter than many other examples of the style. Smell is strong at first then lingers off a little. Strong hops, with citrus and something else. Slight alcohol too. Taste has a strong hops bite front and center. Amazingly, the taste is somewhat thin despite that first impression. That's a nice contrast, though. Feel is good, and the taste and feel lingers for a decent period.

Overall, a very solid DIPA from Moylan's. As expected.
