GABF 2006. Amber bodied with a small white head. Nose is hoppy and bitter with lots of citrus notes, light caramel and hints of evergreen. Taste is pretty much the same - more citrus notes, caramel, and evergreen. Very tasty! Body is medium-full and chewy with some oily notes and a moderate carbonation. Ends with more citrus notes, hops, sweet malts and caramel.

Beautiful cloudy amber with big creamy head. Nice blend of hop aromas is very inviting...and yeah, this is one hoppy beer. Big bitter hop taste is obviously the focal point. You get what you expect with this beer....lots of hops! It ainít balanced, it ainít complex, bit it sure is hoppy.

22oz bottle pored a clear pale/amber color with a nice head. The aroma was supper hopped with citrus, pine, grapefruit, caramal malts and some alcohol. The taste was big and bitter with a strong hop flavor and huge alcohol warmth. I think this is more of an Imperial IPA than a Double.

ChazMania (656) - Pasadena, California, USA - NOV 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Bomber. Wow, this is up there with the finest of all. It has the great tension of flavor between bitter hop and aromatic fruit. I tasted clear pine and citrusy grapefruit along with a slight bubblegum thing. Me and 3 others did a taste test with 4 Imperials, this along with 3Floyds, Stone 10, and Reaper Sleighor. Itís a good time to be alive and like strong IPA!

raphael (894) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 16, 2006
This beer finds a tenous balance at a high edge of bitterness and flavor. Hop assault. citrus and piney aroma. almost too much aroma for the mouth to hold. donít now why the tongue doesnt go numb in surrender.

Thanks to both FlacoAlto & jjpm74 for bottles of this beer. the aroma is a nice spicy fresh floral hop smell with some piney resiny aromas coming through, all the while there are even hints of citrus/fruity smell. The taste is a really nice and smooth malty sweet at the front with a thick mouthfeel and then has a really big and nice bitter finish to th beer. The bitterness sits on the tounge for a while. Overall a damn good beer, and it makes me mad that I can find all other moylans brews in Ohio...but not the hopsickle for some reason.
