Hazy orange-copper with a dense head that lasts awhile. Aroma is like a floral hopsack with mild caramel notes. Lots of fruit with sharp hop bitterness. Dry and noticeably strong. Lingering hop finish.

Bottle. I have had IIPAs with a higher average rating that I liked less than this beer. My first experience with Moylans and a very good one. This is an excellent Imperial IPA with all the classic characteristics of an IPA plus a full feel in the mouth and an alcohol presence. Very smooth and very balanced. A repeat buy for sure. My full rec.

Deep copper, light tan head. Nose is rich caramel, plenty of pine, chocolate, slight butter. Flavor is similar - caramel, butter, extreme resin bitterness, alcohol. Very aggressive.

Afew 22 oz. bottles. Nice beer indeed! A bit nicer then their double IPA which I happen to think is one of the better bangs for your buck and this one is as well. Nice ABV % , but you can’t tell it’s that high and of course it has a nice citrus aroma and a good balance of carbo, malts, etc...

Wow, so glad this made it to ohio. This is probably the hoppiest beer i have ever had. Very citrus and a little piney in the aroma. Flavor was so hoppy that it almost seemed sour like grapefruit. One of the intense beers ive ever had. I dont think you could even have this at a tasting because you would not be able to taste anything else.. This is one that must be tried.

From a 22 oz. bomber bottle with a short blurb on the upper right side of label, no freshness date, but I believe this is the spring 2006 release. Poured a cloudy golden, slightly orangey, amber with a fluffy, foamy off-white head that settled into a thin lacing, minimal amount of sticking. Hoppy aromas of pine floral, citrus, dry earthy leafy, fruity esters and a subtle caramel malty. Good, even carbonation and a crisp, hop slick, creamy smooth full bodied mouthfeel. Big hop taste, but balanced enough that you can also taste the caramel, sugary malts, dry tobacco leafy, sour citrusy, evergreen oily, herbal, tomahawk bitter hops, not taste bud killing bitter, but a light, lingering bitterness that softly numbs the tongue, the alcohol is well into the background and slowly warming in the palate, and a dry leafy, sour hoppy with a subtle sweet malty finish. Excellent, smooth drinkability on this DIPA, I could drink this all night without any complaint, I am looking forward to this spring’s release.

1/1 Tasting at Radio Maria. Thanks to whoever brought this! Strong notes of grapefruit and apricot on the nose leads into a bracing hop bite. A true treat for hoplovers, but a bit over the top for me. If there is a malt presence, its lost on me. An extreme IPA, and certainly a fun one to try.

Bomber. Slightly hazy orange with minimal head leaving tiny spots of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit and flowers, caramel and citrus. Initial sip was a hop bomb exploding forth from the sweet toffee malt foundation, leaving a lingering fallout of piquant and resiny bitterness. Finish and aftertaste was pure hops, which left a peppery, even charred wood taste on the tongue. Hop oils stick to my teeth. This is a monster score for hop addicts.
