look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

So on one of my trip's out west I went to BevMo! to bring back some bombers. I was in a frugal mode, so I opted for this one over the Moylan's Hopsickle right next to it. I tell you this because, my expectations were low as they are both DIPAs and there was a $2 difference in price. Needless to say, given the numbers above, I was pleasantly suprosed.

A-Cloudy orange/amber. Interesting Orange tingerd white head. Great lacing and good retetnion.

S-Carmel Malts, biscuit malts, tropical fruit, pineapple and citrus. Hops come into play here as well, but the malts and fruit dominate the nose.

T-Carmel and biscuit malts with a noce not cloying sweetness. Green and citrus hops (lemony, not grapefruit) hop with a nice bitternes, not over the top but nice.

M-Creamy medium body has some chew to it. Nice even carbonation that does not detract from the creaminess.

D-prety darn good for an 8.5%.

A - Very cloudy. Typical IPA color, a hazy orange. Nice fluffy, cream white head.
S - Hops, apricots and other light fruits. Very hoppy once you pop the bottle open, which is a great welcoming.
T - One of the hoppier Double IPA's I've had, which was surprising. Great pairing of hops and malt, with the hops being more powerful. Light fruits with a hint of vanilla. I nice hop bite which heightens your senses. Definitely for a hop head.
M - Very hoppy on the palate, but leaves the mouth dry. Still leaves a vanilla-like coating on the mouth, which is good.
D - Very drinkable while being very hoppy. Not one of my favorites but will definitely be drinking again because it's a better-than-average Double IPA and priced very well.

4.38/5  rDev +9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Murky apricot colored with a huge frothy head, two inches high, it looks like an ice cream float.

Fresh and bright aroma of pineapple and tangerine, a bit of pine tar and some flowery hops, plus some light brown sugar malt.

Rich flavors of sweet ripe fruit, bready malts, and a wide range of hop flavors from citrus to floral to pine. A little grainy, not busting out with hops, but a good balance of malt and hoppy goodness. Orange peel bitter lingers in the finish. Alcohol weaves subtley in and out, but remains mostly in the shadows.

Thick and full mouthfeel, very satisfying. Very drinkable beer.

Moylander DIPA pours a slightly cloudy 24K gold color with a moderate frothy and creamy white head. Essence of pure and concentrated fresh ripe peach and apricot touched with pine resin soar from the glass. Generously bitter with a lip smacking honey tinged element that is moderately dry and way refreshing. A dialed-up DIPA; well in balance and well endowed, this is a super brew where quality is screaming from the innards of this product. The nose is quite akin to Smuttynose’s IPA but it’s slightly more robust and moderately more bittered. As viscous coating of the mouth along with a light but persistent carbonation adds great pleasure in consumption. A very well made beer where evidence of dedication and love are apparent in its manufacture. Bravo!!

Poured from a bomber into a tulip. Appearance is clear, good carbonation, 2 finger off-white head with good lace. Color is a red amber. Smell is fruity and resin hoppy. Lots of high-alpha hop aroma, some simcoe or chinook. Big and bold, but somewhat laking in sophistication and complexity. Taste is bitter throughout and somewhat redundantly so. A rich citrus cream comes through between the initial hop bite and bitter aftertaste, along with a tad of sour booze and hints of ginger. Oaky and grassy, but predominantly fruity alpha hop. Body is a little light, but drinkability is still high.

This is a simple but somewhat unique brew, keeping in style with California DIPA's without clinging to the overdone grapefruit Cascade crutch. It definitely has some similarities to FFF's Alpha King. I admire the style and I'de drink it again for sure, but it's not exactly spectacular, either.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ap: Huge head when poured. I was initially concerned that the bottle could be infected. Head rocky & merangue-like. Cloudy orange color.

Ar: Heavy orange & other citrus aroma. Apricots. Not overly hoppy in the nose for a DIPA.

Ta: Very sweet, malty front & middle at which point floral, citrusy hops take over to balance the heavy malt profile. A bit on the floral, perfumy side for my tastebuds.

Mo: Full bodied & rich. Slightly cloying & perfumy aftertaste. The citrusy flavor leaves mouth puckered. Too heavily carbonated for the style, but again it could be an infected bottle.

Dr: Medium. The floral flavor makes this a slow sipper for me. Decent balance of malt &hops but too heavy on the floral overtones.

Comments: Flavor ok, but too floral. Not my favorite DIPA. I would try again in case I did indeed have an infected bottle. That could have influenced my impressions...

A decent IIPA. Thanks to Zorro for the trade. I don't know what it is about west coast IPA's, but they just don't do it for me like midwest IPA's do. It smells amazing, but the taste and mouthfeel just don't live up to the aroma.

The beer looks alright, but it's very hazy. Has a straw yellow color with a golden hue. So much haze I can't see through it. Plenty of head with a great retention. As it falls, it leaves a nice marshmallow mountain and some great lace. A little bit of carbonation. I wish it were a little more pale (ie, not completely hazy), but the head structure is really great.

The smell is the best part. Has a great floral and fruity aroma with a hint of grassy and piney resins. Pears, peaches, tangerines, and some nice clean berry esters as well. Smells like Centennial. Very lovely bouquet. Only a small amount of caramel malt sweetness peeks its way out from under the hops.

The taste is where it seems to go downhill, though. Tastes like it was dry hopped for too long with too many hops so that it imparts an intense grassy flavor. Has a strong sweet caramel malt presence. The bitterness is not too aggressive, on the other hand, just the dry hop grassiness that lingers forever. More bitter less dry-hops, please. Not to say I don't appreciate the wonderful aromatics produced by dry hopping, but there is a thing called balance.

The body is medium with a lingering cloying sweetness and a rough grassiness. A hint of alcohol burn as well. No balance. I am none too impressed. Great aromatics, but unfortunately it doesn't translate as well when it actually hits my tongue. Not worth seeking out, IMO, but many people seem to like this type of IIPA. Crazy Californians. Maybe all that sunshine is frying their brains*.

* The opinions expressed in this review are not the opinions of Beer Advocate or the Mid-West. Err... maybe the latter isn't 100% true. In any case, I don't mean to offend. Not all of you are completely insane, afterall. Furthermore, I am still very interested in trying the Hopsickle, since my main beef with this beer isn't that it is too hoppy, but that it isn't bitter enough. Has plenty of hops, but they are more late-boil/post-boil centric, whereas some more bitter flavor and less dry-hop grass flavor would do wonders for this beer...

Between this and the Hopsickle I could really die happy. Pours a great, hazy and fuzzy orange color with a big fluffy head. Deep, grassy smell to it. Grapefruit flavor up front-major citrus going on. Man, my taste buds have been sanded! Nice, very slight caramel flavor lingers. Sticky, resiny mouthfeel-just like I like in a DIPA. Very, very enjoyable beer. Yep, I do believe it is. Thanks callenak-my Secret Santa '06.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served at 34F from a 22 oz bomber into a nonick pint.

Aroma at the bottletop is 100% hops. No hint that there is beer inside--smells like a bag of cascade hops straight from the homebrew store.

Great looking pour, thick, almost crystal clear smoky amber color with light beige head and great lacing.

Aroma is again all hops, no hint of malt or yeast. More complex though, piney as well as citrucy and a bit grassy.

Flavor is lightly malty, obviously under-balanced in favor of hops. Curious to try Moylan's Hopsicke--how can it be even hoppier yet?

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, with slight alcohol, and a mouthfilling, scouring bitterness that lingers... and lingers! The good side is that you can practically chug it, no need to sip.

This beer pushes the envelope of my favorite style of beer--the amped up American IPA. If you like a richer DIPA akin to barleywines, this will fail to satisfy. It's definitely a beer for hopheads--and luckily I'm a hophead. I love the clarity, and the bitterness. Maybe just a little bit more residual sweetness would balance it out. Highly recommended, one of my favorites.

Sweet! Really like this beer. Similar to a hundred other IIPA's that I've had, but seem to prefer this one over those for a few reasons. Sure, it's big on hops with the typical citrus, pine, earthy flavor; intriguingly bitter. This seems better balalnced without allowing the body or the sweetness to become too heavy. The hops are allowed to shine just above the malt profile. Makes for easy drinking -- not a sipper, a drinker. Late, the hops give a mild metalic, soapy flavor, but does not distract too much. Lighter body than in most IIPA's, but I like feel. Like a standard IPA, just amped up a bit.

22 oz bomber bought at Johns Market place. Poured into my pint glass a nice golden copper color with a nice frothy white head. Pretty decent retention.
Sweetness up front, caramel like, potato bread, with some fruity/citrusy piney hops right up there too. Not quite as big of a hop aroma as I prefer but nice non the less.
Sweet malt and bitter hops big at first sip. The maltiness is almost just as big and potent as the hop profile. More balanced than most DIPA's I've tried.
Lots of piny grassy and a bit of citrus flavor round out the hop profile against a sweet malt body.
The mouthfeel seems sort of thin to me but not too bad.
Not too complex, pretty straight forward and easy to drink for those who like not overly bitter hop profiles.

Appearance: Dark gold, good carbonation, millions of little particles, good looking stuff.

Smell: Sweet citrus.

Taste: Resiny citrus with some sweetness but a little astringency. This improved as the beer warmed up.

Mouthfeel: Lasting bitterness.

Drinkability: Knocked down a little due to the aspirin bitterness.

Shipped this in from the west coast. It's a pretty good beer but the astringent tones knock it down a little.

Piney piney, with a touch of citrus. Full, biting, mouth-drying hops. Big bitterness, lovely. Maybe a touch hot, but forgivable, and still a fine brew. Looks good (a clear copper, with a big fat head and thick lace) smells good (like a pine forest in an alchohol rainstorm) and obviously tastes good.

Popped off the cap and foam flew everywhere. The bottle hadbeen untouched in the beer fridge for a week now. Poured an extremely hazy orange in color. I got about 2 fingers of actual beer in the glass and the rest was foam. Even after letting it sit for 45 minutes the glass was mostly still foam.

Nose is chock full o' hop and floral aromas. Just overpowering the nasal cavities and a bit too much. Flavor was the same. I can hardly taste any malts through the sour and bitter hops. Sourness is just too much.

Except for the extreme head on the top, the actual beer was absolutely flat. The hop oils with the accompanying sourness just lacquers the teeth, cheeks, gums and tongue. Just a turn-off.

I scored this beer so poorly because the sourness of the flavor made me pucker up all the time and the time I had to wait to drink actual beer made it rather inconvenient.

Thanks to Secret Santa jrdegriselles for this bottle off my wants. The pour was a little foamy. Big smell of pine and hops. Big hoppy West Coast flavor. This is very easy to drink and a fine brew. I think that Moylans/Marin is my favorite West Coast brewery with all due respect to Alesmith.

Cheers.

Served slightly above room temperature. Poured a beautiful cloudy golden amber color. Had about one finger of bubbly white head that left a decent amount of sticky lace on the glass. Had pretty good head retention. Smelled of bitter hops, piney hops, and citrus fruits. Tastes very hoppy with citrus and a little bit of maltiness, with well masked alcohol.Definitely a well balanced brew. Nice and smooth and almost thick in the mouth. Very drinkable. One of my favorite double I.PA.'s.

Appears a copper toned, transparent amber with a lush, 3 finger, off-white head that takes a while to fade away . Tiny bubbles slowly rise to the top of the floating cap. Streaks of lace are left around the glass.
Smell is of biscuit, pine, caramel, grapefruit, fruity peach, and hints of freshly cut wood.
Taste is of the aromas, highlighted by a sweet, caramel, and grapefruit citrus blast.
Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, gently spiced, and semi-dry in a moderately smooth brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

hazy dank orange with both reddish and yellowish highlights.. although neither are really discernible due to the large volume of blurred opacity in the glass. the head remains with some steadfast bubble clusters, slimy white film and ribbons of solid lace. mmm!

smells awfully belgian.. maybe not belgian, but very yeasty in a sweet way. i'm getting alot of honey, ginger, and candied orange peel. lingering is an odor of sticky icky.. the good stuff, not the mexican brick schwag. that, plus that orange vibe, reminds me when umm.. my 'friend' used to put orange peels in his bags of weed to keep them moist. that was one wacky 'friend' of mine. heh.

smoooth. slightly tingly, but mostly big on flavor. mouthfeel and body are nice enough in a medium way, nothing to get in the way of the flavor (which is appreciated). starts off with a big burst of dry, earthy hop bitterness, which is followed by the common crystalized tropical citrus of high grade thc. yeah, that's there. people talk often about 'weed' taste in beers.. and other than the beers that have actually had weed in them, this comes the closest to replicating that whole profile.. er, that's what my 'friend' told me, anyway. dries out with the swallow, reminiscent of a hop rod rye in its spiciness.. which, i think, is just an extra bonus based on flavorful fresh hop selection.. and perhaps the smallest bit of shelf-age. finishes clean with some chalky rind and a bit of fire-charred marshmallow sweetness. very drinkable for a double ipa, maybe the most so i have ever encountered. in all fairness, and by today's standards, this rides the line between big ipa and double.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured into my trusty Piraat tulip glass, a HUGE, creamy off-white head settled overy a murky orange-ish, coppery body. The head lasts and lasts, settling eventually to a billowy pillow of thick foam ("Is Moylander's DIPA thick and rich enough to stop this speeding roller coaster? No." But damn close. I digress -- but this big head really is thick and rich). As I drink my way down the glass, that head leaves nice craggly rings of lacing.

S: Very nice -- somewhat subdued (for the style). Mainly citrusy -- grapefruit and orange rinds -- and piney hops, though with a slight caramel malt sweetness and even a hint of peppery spice as well.

T: Almost fruit-juicy-sweet: mainly grapefruit, but lemon peel, oranges and even a peachy sweetness are evident, with a dry hoppy finish at first that becomes sweeter the longer you drink. Lots of hop burps throughout and the taste really stays with you.

M: The words I wrote were "oily," "slick," and "creamy." All in all a very smooth feel to it, despite a full body. I didn't notice the carbonation so much when drinking it (and the murky appearance hid any bubbles), but the frequent burps -- coupled with that massive head from only a moderate pour -- led me to believe it's there in force. Good feel for such a heavy beer.

D: I've become a big fan of this style, so I think Moylander's is pretty drinkable. The overwhelming grapefruit flavor may wear on some, however, and it is a heavy beer. I went back and forth on whether to give it a 4 or a 4.5, but I enjoyed the bomber without problems and was happy thinking I've got another in the cellar. You're not going to put this beer back like it's a pilsner, but as a flavorful sipping beer, I found it pretty drinkable.

Notes: all in all an excellent beer. With a little more malt balancing the flavor, I probably would have given it a 5 in taste. The grapefruit flavors, like I said, may turn some people off. But I found it to be an enjoyable brew. Highly recommended.

Pours a clear golden honey amber with a giant off white foamy head. the head lasts forever and leaves nice lacing making this an impressive looking brew. The smell is hoppy with a citrus and pine aroma leaving a pine forrest grape fruit scent thats not too overpowering,but alittle subdued. The taste is creamy with a bitter hop flavor backbone and a hint of citrus hops. The flavors are more subtle than in other doubles and especially in a higher alcohol beer. The taste hides the alcohol very well making this highly drinkable. The m/f is light and very well balanced. A very good beer that deserves the recognition it receives. Cheers.

A: The ale is an amber-orange color with a thick voluminous head that has left thick lace throughout the glass.

S: The ale has an intense grapefruit-pineapple aroma, big and hoppy.

T: The ale is an intensely hopped beer. The grapefruity and pineapple bitterness are first to come through, followed by a pine resiny alcohol sensation. The first sip threw me off a bit, having a thin flavor. Luckily each sip after it has been intense and full of hoppy astringency.

M: The hops are blended well together, giving the ale an intensely bitter but flavorful taste.

D: This DIPA is relatively low in alcohol, which greatly assists the drinkability. The hops are a big winner here.

22oz. bottle.

Orange-gold in color with a faint haze to it. Large ivory colored head.

Big grapefruit aroma, oranges and pine sap present as well. Really didn't pick up much in the way of malt character.

Grapefruit carries through in the taste, and pine resin lingers long into the aftertaste. Malt evident, but submerged in a flood of hops. Perhaps a wheat bread character to the malt, slightly sweet.

Medium to heavy in body, with above average carbonation. Carbonation is a good thing with the body. A very dry finish.

I really liked this one, and would strongly recommend it to any fan of the hop. Balance? We don't need no stinkin' balance....Well, maybe it could have used just a little more.

1pt. 6fl. oz. brown bomber served in an oversized wine glass.

Pours a golden highlighted, light copper in color. Foamy white head that gathers to the sides, leaving a whispy sheet with pools of large bubbles. Thin, ringed lacing with pretty good strength.

Big citrus and pine-filled, oily hop resins. A mild, semi-sweet toasted malt character providing just a touch of needed creaminess. Bright, tropical fruit esters: melon, pear, pineapple, and lime.

Bright lemon and lime upfront giving a touch of sourness. Big, oily hop resin with touches of gritty spruce and pine. The malt backbone is creamy and pleasantly toasted, which comes through just evident enough to keep the hop character from running wild. A big, bright bitterness continues well into the aftertaste along with pine, green apple, and lime flavors.

Medium in body; pulp-like, gritty, and very oily. The texture matches the complex array of flavors.

What a flavorful hop masterpiece! And where the hell is the 8.5% abv? A great offering from a brewery that I need to do a little more sampling of.
