Moylan' hopsickle is a disappointment: neither hoppy nor sweet as the name implies.
I may have hooked on to an older keg at the Bling Pig Bar in Champaign, IL, but I've heard lots of good buzz about this beer and so was looking forward to trying it when I saw t on BP's tap list. When it arrived, it was limpid, pale, and had a foamy head that quickly disappeared, leaving some oily residue. Taste was rather tame and simple. I figured, with the name "Hopsickle," there would be both a malt sweetness and sharp cutting hop edge. I thought it had neither. So perhaps I didn't get what I ordered, or got one of the last pints off an aging keg, or a soapy glass or something that put the beer off. I'll give the Hopsickle another chance first opportunity I have and will happily (hoppily) revisit this review, but until then, I recommend avoiding this beer.
