mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottled. Pours a medium amber color. Strong hoppy and bitter aroma. Lots of sweet pine and citrus. Really bitter right up front. Pine needles. Bitter and spicy finish. Touch of alcohol.

joet (2517) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 10, 2006
Wow. Insane. Like a tamer version of Bear Republic’s legendary one-off eisbier I described as "sweetened hop juice". I’ve finished a bottle and I actually am hurting from all the sugar. Just a bit too sweet for me but the powerful toasty, citrus, resinous experience is still one to be cherished. Moylan’s best beer ever.

Copper orange coloring with a grapefruit nose. Red sweet grapefruit taste. Finish has sweetness with a sour right at the very end. Excellent!

OldGrowth (3177) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose, Citrus. More lemon/grapefruit, little orange pine too. Clean brownish orange color. Ok head that faded quickly. Minor lacing. Bitter flavor. The big grapefruit pucker. Sort of burnt (or maybe thats just the tastebuds getting overwhelmed) Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, BItter finish. Tasty in a punishing way. A one sided brew.

fordest (2386) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2006
22 oz. bottle from Holiday (last one) 2005 bottle. Darker than expected amber with a decent head that didn’t stick around at all. Aromas were crazy. Sweet orange, grapefruit, Pine. Some sweet cherry too. Flavors were nice too. Grapefruit. Just enough malt to make those hops stand out. Grassy and piney on the finish with a bitterness that lingers. Great beer.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2006 [bomber from Sunset Grill 3/29/06] Pours a nice bright orange color. Moderately sized head. Aroma is STRONG.. huge hops, as soon as you get it near you. Flavors are super fresh, grapefruity hops that dominate your mouth. Lively carbonation- finishes piney, dry and bitter.

TURDFERGUSON (4042) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2006
bomber from Julio’s Liquors in Westborough, MA. pours a beautiful orange-red amber with a thick, frothy well laced head that lasts till the last sip. nose is lots of fresh hops--citrus and grapefruit of note. Sweet caramel malt with an outstanding hop flavor that carries throughout leaving an excellent hop resin on the palate. yummy! very enjoyable, a great double ipa. more hops heavy than im used to...and i like it! so happy i have another one for the cellar.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
65 cl bottle. Orange amber colour with a nice head. Extreme hoppy nose, with a very nice tasty flavour of hops and caramel. A very great 2xIPA.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Bomber. Poured a nice deep orange gold color...decent fluffy white head. Big, big hoppy, fruity, piney aroma. Everyone loved it. Big hop blast in the flavor too, but with great malt support, seemed full bodied too which just added to the enjoyment. Nice bitter finish. Very tasty IIPA.
